Todd Haley Says Cleveland Browns May Have Best QB Room He’s Worked With
Throughout his tenure with the Pittsburgh Steelers, it was reported several times that Todd Haley did not have a good relationship with QB Ben Roethlisberger. Haley not being a part of the Steelers anymore doesn’t mean their beef is over with.
Now Haley is offensive coordinator of the Browns, and his recent comments suggest he is happy with the quarterback situation he has in front of him. It also seems as though he’s ecstatic to be out of Pittsburgh.
Haley confidently stated that the current batch of quarterbacks in Cleveland may be the best he’s worked with. Ever. Even though Roethlisberger is a future hall of famer.
“This is probably one of the best – if not the best – quarterbacks rooms, in general, that I’ve had,” Haley said. “The group, in general, is what I’m excited about. I think that it’s an intelligent, intelligent group, with ability to throw the football and make plays with their legs, some of them. When you have that, I think that good things happen. Competition is created in the room, even though they’re working hard together to help each other and get better as a group.”
“I thought that Tyrod has done a tremendous, tremendous job of establishing himself as the leader of this offense. His car is there every morning in his spot when I get here in the morning, and it’s there when I’m leaving,” Haley said. “That’s what you’re looking for in the leader of your offense. I think that he’s done a great job with understanding the terminology, concepts and all of the different things. Like I said, we threw a lot at him. He’s more of a show what to do, more than by talking. I’ve really been impressed and encouraged by him.”
Haley’s confidence in the current batch of QB’s in Cleveland has to be wonderful news for Browns fans, as they have been searching for a starting QB to help put an end to all the misery in the Dawg Pound.
