"Todd Haley. That's a whole ‘nother conversation. He's one of those head coaches that doesn't respond to his players. That's why he got fired. When he left there it was like a big breath. He kind of crushed my career a bit, trying to put other guys in, not really relying on his veterans."
Geez, Chris. Tell us how you really feel.
"They even gave me a three-year contract (before 2011). Obviously Scott Pioli, he ain't gonna miss on nobody. I felt real good in that situation, (Haley) just never gave me the opportunity to break out, I got one or two attempts a game, I can't really do too much. And it just got ugly from there. We didn't have a good relationship, and he sat me down for no reason for the (January 2011) playoff game. I'm the one with the most playoff experience on the team, and you take me out? So me sitting down that day sent a bad message to our team - totally negative, one of your veteran leaders didn't play in the playoff game, and we lost. We got our butts kicked, and I was ready to get out of there."
Sounds like there are some personal issues but here but from the outside looking in it's hard to blame Haley a whole lot considering the team won 10 games en route to an AFC West championship that year.
