LATROBE, Pa. — Pittsburgh Steelers camp had a county fair feel to it Friday night, and it wasn't just because of the country band or the fireworks.
The targets were tall gray "buckets" -- two large trash barrels stacked on each other -- and the object was to land footballs in them. Participants got one point for hitting a bucket, two points for hitting the rim, and three points for sinking a shot. The buckets were placed at various distances to simulate different throws.
Tied with reserve quarterback
"That's him," offensive coordinator
Not surprisingly, Haley is itching for a rematch after he was eliminated from the contest. He used to stage similar post-practice games when he was head coach in Kansas City, borrowing the contest from former quarterbacks guru Dan Henning.
"I would beat Jim Zorn at it every day," Haley said of the quarterback turned coach. "It would just kill him."
The best at the game? Vinny Testaverde.
"He was the master," said Haley, who was a New York Jets assistant when he got to know Testaverde. "We called him Vinny Buckets. His technique was perfect."
