Offensive coordinator Todd Haley and defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau discuss the Steelers vs. the Ravens, what Byron Leftwich brings to the table and how Lawrence Timmons sometimes replaces Troy Polamalu.
I think in the big picture they don’t change much at all. With that being said, Byron is not Ben, and I think it’s very important that we and he understand that. He can’t go out there and try to be Ben. He needs to go out there and be Byron and we need to, just like I say every week and this is why I make the point every time you all say “Haley offense,” it’s not my offense. We’re going to do things that cater to the strengths of our players and obviously that will be critical when you talk about the quarterback position. We’re going to do our best to cater to Byron’s strengths, as opposed to trying to force square pegs in round holes, so to speak.
What do you like about Leftwich and what does he give you guys?
I think there’s a lot to like about him. First of all, he’s a backup here but he’s obviously shown that he can start in this league and be productive. But first and foremost, when you’re around Byron for a very short time, you understand that he’s just got that “It” factor.
