Falcons WR Roddy White is always an entertaining follow on Twitter. Not shy to express his opinion, he's sounded off on other players, coaches, teams and any other topic on which he feels the need.
He turned his ire toward Steelers offensive coordinator during Sunday night's Colts/Steelers game, right after a montage of Haley arguing with former players he's coached, WR Terrell Owens and Anquan Boldin and QB Matt Cassel.
It's safe to say White doesn't feel Haley, or other coaches, should overvalue their contributions toward a team's success.
The Tweet, which is still active, read:
Todd Haley problem is he really thinks that coaches win games not players when he realizes he doesn't win games than he will be fine— Roddy White (@roddywhiteTV) August 20, 2012
"Then," not "than," Roddy.
It's interesting insight, though. This is White's eighth season in the league, and he hasn't failed to catch at least 83 passes for at least 1,153 yards since 2007. We can take his opinion as educated, at least.
Coaches may not make as much as players, but clearly, their success as coordinators is a pretty strong piece of another team's desire to hire them as head coaches. Some head coaches have had far more success than others, suggesting there is at least something of a correlation between the ability of a coach and the amount of scratch marks in his win column.
As far as Haley's success, he obviously did enough to impress Steelers coach Mike Tomlin. Haley was hired to fill what was probably the most attractive offensive coordinator job available this offseason.
But what does Tomlin know? He's only a coach.
