Also, maybe if they respected our passing attack in the slightest, that might back the defense off the line of scrimmage a bit. I would expect a "Top 5 QB Franchise QB" to be able to get ONE FIRST DOWN in 30 minutes (or half the entire game)... The entire offense played poorly and Ben certainly doesn't get a free pass. He looked terrible and very unsure on where he wanted to throw the ball. He was simply not seeing receivers that were open.
Oh good grief. Did you guys even pay attention?
WE DON'T USE OUR RECEIVERS. Ben completed 63% of his passes (His career average btw) for 5.8 YPA.
Do you know how sad that is? How many passes were to the backs? WR screens?
He doesn't go through progressions anymore. Haley won't allow it. If the primary read is covered dump it to the back.
Playing games with Ben is the mantra on offense.
Why? You'd have to ask the owner.
No, run run, save us on 3rd and 8 gets him killed.So exactly how many more sacks would it take for you to admit that long passes will get Ben killed?
You want short passes? You want quick passes? That's fine, Arians did them too.
But when Arians did it, he had his WRs on the field, not Kelvin F'N Beachum, Jaime McCoy, and David Paulson on the field with one wideout.
Haley's basic design on offense is the biggest issue he has.
