Arians handicapped this team so much.
I am happy with Haley, just would like to see the running game pick it up.
As far as Ben goes, he has the #2 QB rating right now and the play calling definitely has something to do with it. Quick passes, better designed screens and passes out of the backfield, hiding whether we are running or passing, and using Heath all contributes to that IMO. The O line is also pass blocking extremely well and that helps a lot. IMO Ben has always had this capability, it was just never used. When we had the Bus and/or Parker we ran the ball (good choice) and when we had Airhead we didn't game plan at all. Unless LeBeau starts calling some man coverage, then Ben will have the ball in his hands A LOT and will be our only chance at winning. He can't do it alone though as Sunday proved, and that was against a bottom feeder who got completely embarrased by another bottom feeder (Dolphins) the previous week.
