I visited another site yesterday outside of BTBS which I will not name here as they are not worth the visit as their writers(one in particular) are just not very good. The article was a hate article directed at Todd Haley. I have seen many of these over the last few months and could even say over the last few years since Haley has come on board with the Black N Gold. Most of these hate articles are not even articles but comments by fans to articles that describe what is wrong with the Steelers. I want to say up front, right now, I support Haley and think he is a good, if not great offensive coordinator.
I could go into statistics and Haley's coaching history to show why that I support him and feel the way I do about his being the Steelers offensive coordinator. One thing that I have learned about some of you in Steeler Nation though, is that no matter how rational of an argument that is produced and put in black and white for you to see, if your mind is made up that you don't like someone, there is no changing that. I could say that I admire your convictions for "sticking to your guns" but that would be me lying to you. If someone thinks that the square root of 4 is 1 and I prove to them that this is not the case, then if they are "sticking to their guns", they would just be labeled as dumb at that point. Am I correct? So you see that I can't admire someone for sticking to their convictions when they have been presented facts to back up the hypothesis but they still want to deny it.
Said writer of the unnamed website yesterday decided to debate me as to why chuck n duck BA was better than Todd Haley. He would pluck random stats that fit his argument and present these to me. I mentioned to him, that he may want to start worrying about the defense causing us to miss the playoffs and not worry so much about the offense. I presented the following statistics:
