Haley aims for red zone consistency in 2017

Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley is putting extra focus on the team’s red zone efficiency, where more than often last season, would-be touchdowns turned into mere field goals.

“We just have to be more consistent,” Haley told 93-7 The Fan in Pittsburgh. “We did a lot of good things, but what we are trying to eliminate is just the up and downs. I always say that we don’t want yo-yo’s, we don’t want to be a yo-yo team. We just want to be a little more consistent in [the red zone] and I think if we do that, we’ll feel good about what we are doing.”

“As we’ve had to deal with a bunch over the last couple years with various players that are very important to us, we coach the guys that are out here, especially in this setting,” said Haley. “We’re excited for him to get out here whenever that happens, but until then we’ve got to just coach the guys that are out there and work like heck to develop guys, young guys, new guys and figure out what they do best and how they can best help us.”
