You say don't blame Haley for throwing short of the endzone? Hmm. Who was that QB that kept throwing the ball into the endzone towards the end of Super Bowl 43? Sorry, but ever since Haley got here this offense has played scared. I'm more apt to blame Haley for that than Ben simply because such plays have become a trademark of the Haley offense in Pittsburgh.
You're starting to sound like one of those fans that just wants to blame everything on the QB.
Ben didn't call a WR screen on 3rd and 11 neat midfield after a 2nd and 15 run play. Haley did.
Ben didn't call for LSH to get the ball 7 straight times. Haley did.
Ben didn't have the wrong personnel on the field prior to Redman's fumble. Haley did.
You've had a bug up your ass about Ben for YEARS. It's "fans" like you who deserve another 20 years of losing when he's done.
He's doing what he's told. If the first read isn't open, dump it to the back and get rid of it. Stay safe in this "safer offense" that somehow caused the most damaging injury to his career and has offensive linemen and running backs dropping like dead flies.How many times did he throw the ball short of the endzone? It's was simply idiotic. And don't blame the OC for that
No, to win a petty war with a HOF QB who was becoming BIGGER than the Rooney name.
Some teams have guys who can run it in from a few yards out when the throw is short of the end zone. Actually most teams.
