Verron Haynes on Sirius NFL Radio
"I've got to tip my hat to them. They did an excellent job of preparing, and they executed well," he said. "Jamal [Lewis] ran well. And the defense really played a hell of a game."
Haynes also discussed this week's opponent and division rival, the Cincinnati Bengals, who are trying to keep their playoff possibilities alive with a win at the expense of Pittsburgh. With the Steelers having nothing to gain with the win, Haynes was asked whether or not his team needed any extra motivation to get up for this game.
"It's one of those things that you don't really need the extra to get up for this game," he said. "It's Cincinnati. If we were playing other teams, maybe we'd need the extra fire, but it's Cincinnati, it's bad blood throughout our division."
A large portion of the 12-minute interview, compliments of Sirius NFL Radio, focuses on Haynes' thoughts regarding the possibly retirement of his head coach, Bill Cowher. Find out why Haynes doesn't think the Steelers' skipper will walk away after Sunday's game.
