    As Steel Life said above, this offense was rolling until Haley started exclusively calling plays. So yeah, I still don't like Haley.
    We have no idea if all of bens plays worked and all of Haleys plays didnt. The fakebubble screen was a good call. The TD brown dropped was a good call. The 4th down play to Bell was good as well as the Will Johnson TD.

    I'm not a Haley fan but this its getting old bashing the OC's all the time.

    With absolutely no running game, I thought it was a huge positive that there was actually a few great throws to RBs. Hope we see more, especially to Bell, who can make plays.
    Bell, Dwyer, and Will Johnson had some nice plays out of the backfield today on passes. That was good to see, especially the TD to Johnson after the red zone troubles running the ball.

    Yeah, and Ben called those plays. Not Haley. So maybe it's "Haley's EGO" holding us back rather than "Ben's racalcitrance".

    I'm not saying "all" of Ben's plays worked and "all" of Haley's plays failed. What I will say is that after we scored two touchdowns in the no huddle, we went to a slower, huddled offense ... the offense bogged down. Now, if we were in a huddle at that time, "I" would infer that Haley was making all/a majority of the calls. I'm not one to hide behind anything, so I'm going to say it flat out .. for "myself" I hate Haley as an our OC. That has nothing to do with any ArtII conspiracy theories etc. I just don't think the dude has a killer instinct; he's too passive. And I think that Ben called the majority of the game when we were scoring points (btw, so does Heath).

    Because of Heath quote, saying Ben called a good game.

    I still don't like not having a FB in there. They put Johnson in there at the end, and he ended up scoring a TD. There were plays where the hole Bell tried running into closed so fast he had no options. IF he had Johnson leading the way, there were a few plays where he could have bounced outside for yardage.... that's one of my only beefs with Haley..

    Actually, as much as I dislike Haley, that wasn't his fault ...that's one of the drawbacks of the no huddle ... they can't substitute and neither can we .. that's why we couldn't bring Johnson in for a lot of the running plays ... given the success of the no huddle, it's a trade of that worked out pretty well
