I wouldn't say he was a "joke". I think he's got a lot of sh!t going on - on field and off field. I just became a father for the first time last week - I can say, firsthand, that (at least initially) things change drastically when a child comes along. I'm not trying to blame his child. Or his wife. But that is a pretty big life change to deal with while ALSO having to play football.

I'm sure he just wants to be home and with his wife and child. And that might have played a part in his deficiency of play post-injury.

But ultimately, I do feel as though the Haley experiment was a bust. Ben never trusted him or respected him. That's going to impact his level of play. The offseason is going to be interesting, for sure. Whether fair or not, I would not be surprised if Haley gets fired.
