Colquitt: Haley mad at McDaniels for cheating

Todd Haley has been known for his short temper long before he landed the Chiefs' head coaching gig. Five years ago, when Haley was a wide receivers coach with the Cowboys, he and Terrell Owens had a falling out that ended with Owens stating that the two would have "no other dialogue" after Haley berated him for being late to a team meeting.

And then, in January 2009 when Haley was the Cardinals offensive coordinator, he got into it on the sidelines with receiver Anquan Boldin.

We mention this because last season, when the Broncos defeated the Chiefs, Haley refused to shake hands with then-Denver coach Josh McDaniels and instead decided to give him a finger-wagging lecture right there at midfield.


Haley later apologized saying, "I do believe in doing what's right and and that was not right. I probably let the emotions of the situation get to me too much and I apologize to the fans and to Denver and to Josh."

Well, on Wednesday, Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt appeared on the "Vic and Gary" show on 102.3 the Fan in Denver and he had some thoughts on why, exactly, Haley wasn't particularly happy with McDaniels.

“I don’t know if I can answer that within the locker room, but I know that it has something to do with the Spygate, the videotaping,” Colquitt said, according to PFT. “All the stuff like that. And I think that Haley was like, ‘Listen, based on that game I can tell what you are doing, and you are cheating.’ . . .

“I think it was just a culmination of rumors and [McDaniels] had been involved in that in New England possibly before, and so Todd was just kind of saying, ‘Look, with the game plan we had and what you guys already knew we were gonna do, this is’ . . . basically saying it was ‘bush, bush league.’”

So there you have it. According to Colquitt, Haley was miffed because he thought McDaniels, who came to Denver from New England, was cheating. We eagerly await Eric Mangini's thoughts on the matter.

Colquitt: Haley mad at McDaniels for cheating

I don't know about Boldin, but Owens could use some incessant berating.
Bowe sure needed it. He was a useless turd before Haley lit into him.
By the way, Haley is actually pretty reasonable. yeah, he chews people out, but he also listens and adapts. Fact is, he argues the way almost everyone else in the world wishes people would argue.
As for control....shouldn't he? As head coach, he can demand as much control as he can handle.
Yeah, I'm a Chiefs fan, but you won't find unanimous acceptance of Haley among fans. However, while I didn't like the look of his face before he got here, I have since heard a lot of his news conferences, and he is doing it right. The team is definitely improving under him and it is definitely because of him, whether you want to talk preparation or even selecting of players. The biggest complaint last year was how he handled 4th and One, and it was a legitimate complaint. However, one thing he gets credit for is consistency.  They went for it way too often, but worse, they screwed around with deception and stupid flips. We'll see how he adapts to that this year.

Todd Haley sounds like he has anger management issues in addition to control issues. He always wants to be in control.The guy sounds like sucha great guy to work for. If I ever become a WR in the NFL I would like nothing better than to have Mr. Haley berate me incessantly.
