Have to give Arians credit, now.I really feel sorry for Haley.
The owners bring him in to change the offensive philosophy. He has a QB who is in his tenth year, and hasnít yet learned to throw a ball away, instead of taking a sack. Not only that, but he hasnít learned to read defenses either.
Often when we are trying to come from behind in the two minute drill, Ben will look at the D for so long, the play clock will be at 0 or 1 by the time we snap the ball. You canít burn 30 seconds reading defenses in the 2 minute drill. If you do, you get 4 plays off, in two minutes.
If Haley tries to play to Benís strengths, he isnít doing what management brought him in to do. So Haley is stuck trying to install a new offense, with a QB who has shown, he isÖhow do I sayÖless than quick to change what he does.
I didnít care for Arians, and was glad to see him move on. But now I see the logic, in him not trying to change Ben. Arians was wise to let Ben, be Ben, until management retired Arians out of town.
