Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley says he wasn't yelling at Ben Roesthlisberger during the Steelers' two-point conversion attempt Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.
"That’s what Haley said anyway on Tuesday after he was caught by TV cameras screaming for someone to shut up among other unprintables. It was assumed he was sending those instructions to his quarterback and even his daughters at home thought so. Instead, Haley was yelling at special teams coach Danny Smith," wrote the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
“I wasn’t yelling at Ben,” Haley said after Steelers practice. “I had two of my daughters send me the clip and say, ‘Dad, why were you yelling at him?' I was like, I wasn’t yelling at Ben, I was yelling at an unnamed coach that I won’t talk about right now.”
Roethlisberger shrugged off any suggestion that he was the target because he said Haley has yelled at him before when it’s not caught on camera, and that it’s no big deal, noted the Post-Gazette.
The two-point conversion was good to tie the game. The Steelers would go on to win 20-17.
