The Pittsburgh Steelers rank near the bottom of the NFL in points per game, but offensive coordinator Todd Haley still believes in his team. Despite the fact that the team struggles to light up the scoreboard and people calling for his job, Haley thinks his team is right on the edge of greatness — well, “on the cusp of being pretty good.”
Haley thinks that the team can start scoring enough points to win games and Haley thinks that time could come soon.
“I feel like we’re on the cusp of being pretty good,” Haley said, via Scott Brown of ESPN.com. “We’ve had a lot of moving parts — not that anybody else hasn’t — but we’ve had to overcome and mix and match a little bit but I do feel like we’re close to playing the way we have to play for us to win on a weekly basis.”
Ideally, Haley’s offense will start to improve their performance this week.
The Cincinnati Bengals just lost on Thursday Night Football, which means a win by Pittsburgh will close the gap in the AFC North and keep their hopes alive.
Pittsburgh does play the New England Patriots on Sunday, so it won’t be easy, but it’s a banged up Patriots defense and an offense that has struggled in their own right. Perhaps this is the perfect time for the Steelers to turn their season around.
