The Steel City Stare Down continues on reportedly as Mark Kaboly from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports via Twitter Monday that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger still hasn\’t met with new offensive coordinator Todd Haley. Kaboly reports that Roethlisberger told him, “He still hasn\’t called yet.” Kaboly interjected his opinion that the tone of Roethlisberger definitely came across that he has no intention of making the first move.
Haley was introduced as the Steelers new offensive coordinator 11 days ago during a press conference at the Steelers facilities and reportedly Roethlisberger was in the building earlier that day and has also already talked to team president Art Rooney II and head coach Mike Tomlin since returning from his extended stay in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl.
Roethlisberger also talked to Pittsburgh Post Gazette beat writer Ed Bouchette on the same day that Haley was introduced and shared his concerns about a possible change in the offense with Haley now aboard. He also was interviewed by DVE Radio reporter Mike Prisuta last week and talked about what he hopes the coaching style of Haley will be.
One player on offense that we know has met Haley is wide receiver Antonio Brown as he posted a picture of him and the Steelers new play caller last week.
