Inside the Steelers Locker Room: Dick LeBeau and Todd Haley talk Buccaneers loss and Jaguars game

New, comments

BTSC goes inside the locker room to talk with both Pittsburgh Steelers coordinators about failures in the Buccaneers loss, as well as about the upcoming game against the Jaguars.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Many fans were wondering where the breakdowns were in the Pittsburgh Steelers loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week, and BTSC's own John Phillips went into the Steelers' locker room and spoke with both Todd Haley and Dick LeBeau about the loss, as well as the upcoming game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Todd Haley

The Steelers' much-criticized offensive coordinator answers many questions about the loss to the Buccaneers last week and, specifically, the final offensive series of the game where the team failed to retain possession and win the football game.

Other than the failures in the waning seconds of the Buccaneers game, Haley speaks of the lack of consistency in the offense and how any team averaging over 400 yards, like the Steelers, should be scoring more points. He even speaks of Antonio Brown's touchdown celebration, as well as the competition heating up between Justin Brown and Lance Moore.

Dick LeBeau

The Steelers' defense has been questionable at times, and LeBeau addresses that with media members. Specifically, he talks about James Harrison's snap-count and the Steelers inability to get consistent pressure on the quarterback from all positions.

LeBeau points to the fact the Steelers were literally "inches" away from making some big plays on defense in the Buccaneers loss, but the team will have to work harder to make those plays in the future. LeBeau cited a big-play Jaguars team that is solidified by Blake Bortles who looks to be as promising a young quarterback as the veteran player and coach has seen in some time.

When asked about the officials being at Steelers' practice this week, LeBeau answers candidly that it certainly can't hurt at this point in the season.

The Steelers travel to Everbank Field to face the Jacksonville Jaguars at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.
