obviously Todd Haley's fault. Just ask Big Ben 69.

anyways the key piece to us going to the playoffs is about five or six other teams going on a losing streak like the one we suffered at the beginning of the season

IMO the biggest missing piece to our O is the running game. More important than our Redzone issues. If we ever get a running game we will be very hard to beat. Playoffs 2013!

I'm no Haley fan but I read somewhere that Ben called most of his own plays. If that's true then it's pretty hard to fault Haley for the playcalling. Besides I thought our miscues in the game were more due to execution rather than playcalling.

Love the grit and sense of urgency but my hopes for this season haven't changed much

Still don't generate a good enough pass rush or score enough in the red zone to challenge the leagues best

I want to believe they have it in them, but I need to see it displayed for a couple games in a row

Cannot have lapses like that 2nd qrt and be a legit title contender

Canning Haley might help alleviate some short term problems but the bottom line is to get to where we want to be(year in an year out title contender)....we're going to eventually have to have a OL who can at least stalemate the other teams dl consistently

Letting Ben scramble around and make it up as we go with no running game is not a winning formula for the future...particularly on the back end of bens career

Enough of the Haley playcalling crap in here. Can we start talking about his wife? Actually, I would prefer pictures. Thanks in advanced.
