Problem is that while keeping Ben healthy is a worthy goal, this method of doing it was never going to work. The tiger can't change his stripes. Ben is a playground player, that will never change. The reality is that Bruce's offense of giving Ben a lot of freedom and running the offense as an equal partner was the best system, however imperfect it was. Now with Haley we have the same thing with a lot more garbage plays mixed in.
How could you say our offense is a failure under Haley? I'll admit his Game 1 was a bit of a mess up,but he's been great. We've KILLED time of possession. We are killing it on third downs. We are killing it w/ Heath. His sets are working. Ben, actually, isn't being sacked too many times.
I really don't know how you could say that. I think Haley has been a success so far. Especially due to the injuries.
