Default Ben's Audibles -is it 35 straight runs?

How come he never audibles to anything other than a run? I know it's coming, the other team surely does -as the Titans did. What is up with that?

if he didn't, they'd never run the ball!

It seems like everytime he calls an audible it's to that awful sprint draw play. One time Willie lost about 5 yards on it.

He also never audibles to a fleaflicker. To me as a fan, that's disappointing.

I also think that, in order to make the fleaflicker more successful, a good plan would be to just come up to the line and shout: "FLEA-flicker! ... Flea-FLICKer!!!" during the snap count. The defense would never believe you were actually going to run it.

You know, all reverse psychology and shit.

And that 5 yard loss was an audible when there were at least 9 Titans in the box. I remember asking my brother, "what was he thinking?"

Where were the hot routes? Where were the quick slants and the quick outs???

Sometimes the audibles are scripted and don't actually do anything

After the first two times....I was at the sports bar and i said...."RUN PLAY" whenever he audibled. Guess what the result was.

That's on Ben and the OC. Plain and simple. Arians should be fired at the end of the season. Why? Because it's too hard to teach an old dog new tricks. He won't adjust.

The flea flicker won't work because Willie usually gets hit before he could flip it back to Ben.

Well, at least he gets hit behind the line faster than Bettis.
