That history also historically included Bruce Arians as the o-coordinator and that isn't just a coincidence. He had a prominent hand in playing to lose those games with his boneheaded and arrogant playcalling.
I don't think it can be overstated that Haley was fired by the Chiefs and will be out to prove a point. Couple that with the fact it's a home game and it could potentially be a bloodbath.
I think it's a good idea that if we do get that "big lead", we should put Leftwich in and also sit Harrison and anyone else that is still banged up. Leftwich could knock some rust off right before the big Ravens game that he could possibly be playing in and we can keep Ben healthy another week.
