    I see your point, but nobody thought he would like Haley and that worked out ok.

    how OK has it worked out? I don't think it's been lovely production wise... I like the efficiency but we aren't scoring in bunches.. we are bubble screening and tip toeing down the field to kick FG's.

    Up until the injury, Ben was having one of his best seasons...even now, he has a 4 to 1 TD/INT ratio, is completing passes at a rate better than his career average and over 7 yards per attempt...he is on pace to be sacked the fewest times since 2005 when he only played in 12 games...

    Haley has helped Ben do this without the benefit of a healthy Mendenhall and continued poor health on the o-line...

    After dealing with the likes of Lindley and Skelton, Whis would LOVE Ben and trust him without question going forward.

    If Haley left I would like to see Norv Turner here.

    I would be fine with that. He's a good OC, but a horrible head coach. Even worse than what we have.

    If Todd Haley leaves, that'll be more depressing than anything that's happened since Super Bowl XLV.

    Sitting here twitching as I type that I agree with ES...again this week.

    IMO you can't evaluate a new offense in the first year. It really needs to be a two year and more thing to see the real effectiveness. They are still learning from an execution standpoint and making adjustments, but as Slapstick described all the trends are going in the right direction.

    I'm not so sure that Haley is anxious to jump back into the HC ranks especially with a bad team with no QB. If he would fail it would probably be the last time he ever got a HC opportunity and the Cardinals are set up for failure. Even ultimate team guy Larry Fitzgerald is showing signs of growing discontent.

    Haley's best move would be to stay with the Steelers for about three years and get a job with a better team.
    1.25 DT Vernon Butler, La Tech, 6’4” 323
    2.58 CB Artie Burns, Miami, 5’11” 189
    3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 6’6” 240-Jarvis Jones’ replacement
    4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 6’4 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
    6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 6’7” 322-raw talent with ton of upside
    7.229 CB Brian Poole, Florida, 5’10” 210
    7.246 WR/KR Ed Eagan, Northwestern State, 5’ 10” 185-need WR depth and returner

    How about Bruce Arians as interim HC?
