    What does it do for team chemistry when your franchise QB is whining and belly aching in the media about his new OC and the offense he is going to be in charge of running? Does he get a pass that he didn't keep it behind closed doors because it's known he is the one saying it? I could argue that actually makes it worse.

    Perhaps I missed something, but when did Ben whine or bellyache in the media about Haley? I know that there was some speculation when one didn't call the other fast enough for some people's taste. However, I don't recall Ben ever going on a tear about Haley.

    quick google search showed this but there were more instances before and during the season. Mostly little digs that were fairly transparent. Some he backtracked and said he was misunderstood.

    and when he was one of the lowest players on the team, we're you upset at the FO for not giving him a contract earlier?

    regardless of when he started to pick it up that year (hey, sometimes you just dont get to the Qb) he was above his average when he got injured 2 years ago. how is that a sign that he was slacking off his routine. a routine where he has has outplayed his rookie contract for 4 years.

    You take that as whining or bellyaching?? Really?? All those quoted in the article seemed to be completely cool with each other at the end of the day. If that is all it takes to hurt team chemistry then the Steelers are in real trouble.

    ??

    his new offense coordinator was hired in the offseason around this time last year

    the article you posted was from a game in december. and his "whining" consisted of

    Question. why didnt you go to heath miller in the 2nd half

    ben's answer. i dont know why we moved away from it. it was successful in the 1st half. you would have to ask the OC

    The whole Ben vs. Haley thing is media fabrication IMO.

    I have noticed that Woodley has been VERY quiet on facebook since this article came out. He is usually all over it. I hope it makes things more productive for him.

    One more thing - Clark has deleted his twitter account recently. Hmmm.....

    The first of those plays where he was injured he was chasing Tom Brady while rushing the passer.

    This sets the tone for the team, no rats on board thank you.
    No matter who it is?

    What if it's Big Ben? Or Timmons? You're really going to cut them just because they stated the obvious?

    Clarks twitter was shut down before the super bowl because he was getting hammered there saying he wanted the Ravens to send Ray Ray out on top.
