You know, Ben could/should run some out of that 5 wide.

Things sure do seem to be coming together at the right time. We are playing much better on O, with Ben and the play-calling having alot to do with that.

We can do better, it's time for some rings on the other hand!

Blame Ben. He's calling about 2/3rds of his own plays now.
Did Ben tell you this over dinner, Tomlin while watching the Thanksgiving Day games or Arians during your golf game? You think they would ever tell you the truth of who is calling what and what percentage of the time?

35 minute time of possesion cause the defense literally took the ball away from the Patriots offense nearly every time they had it and handed it right back to our offense. And we scored 17 points as a direct result of being given the ball in the Patriots territory on 4 different occasions, twice in the Patriots red zone. I won't count the 3 points we got from Polamalu's interception since we ended up with the ball on our own 34. Lets not all get out of hand with praise for the offense just yet. I definitely agree with the OP, the play-calling is still suspect and I'm not sure how I feel about Moore and Parker spliting EQUAL carries. I don't think the WR set is so much the problem as is the utilization of our rush scheme or lack there of I should say. 22nd in the league in the rush is pretty unacceptable and is nearly a full blown weakness of this team, not just a problem.

Be that as it may, you don't rack up a TOP of 35+ minutes by constantly going 3-and-out. It just doesn't happen. Like I said, the offense has been showing improvement and I hope it continues and we're playing our best football in January (and hopefully February).

With his shoulder better, maybe.

I bet Arians could draw up a nice little delayed "guard pull right" for Kemo out of that 5 wide with Ben right behind him.

Play calling is getting Better and Ben calling his owns plays help as well.
Sure our defense was getting turnovers, but to rack up 35 min TOP you still have to have some consistent drives and move the chains.

The only problem I have with five wide set is with who is on the field. Keeping Miller in a five wide set is not a problem, but what about Memo? To me he needs to be on the field for the check down. At this point memo bings more to the table than does Sweed.
