How many people have a new boss take over at their job who wants to "change things" and how many people take shots at him or her for doing that - especially if everyone's used to doing something a certain way?

It's human nature.
well ben should be glad he wasnt the one fired like peyton manning. has anyone heard peyton whining about a new playbook? hell no, because if he doesnt already know every teams offense, he can learn it in a day. thats how much he studies. ben needs to shut up already about haleys offense and playbook and just learn the damn thing.

Too many dummies jumping to conclusions.
are people really confusing "rosetta stone" language learning systems with THE Rosetta Stone?

the rosetta stone is the ancient stone carved tablet that allowed man to finally decipher egyptian heiroglyphics. up until its discovery in the 1800's the meaning of the egyptian writings was one of mankinds greatest mysteries.

by ben saying haleys playbook is like the rosetta stone, he is saying that it is not only greek to him, but cunnieform and heiroglyphs as well.

it really makes him look like a dumbass. he should really think before he says some of the shit he does.

holy shit, i am still completely flabbergasted that people are implying that ben is merely suggesting that the new playbook is simplified or easy to read.

now i'm one of the biggest ben supporters and defenders in the world but he is clearly saying that either haleys playbook is so complex and unorganized that its like its written in 3 languages, or that it is completely foreign, undecipherable material to him.

either he's got the biggest set of brass balls between his legs to be questioning and critisizing his new bosses playbook, or he has a rosetta stone of concrete poured between his ears.

either way, im sure all the smarter nfl players are sharing a good laugh at his expense.

next thing you know he will be praising arians for drafting 2 TE's with the colts first 3 picks and building an offense that will rival the patriots.

There is nothing even worth discussing on this subject. Players don't even have the playbooks yet.

even more reason for ben to keep his mouth shut on the subject.

If he did, he'd get crap for that too. Everything the guy does and says is scrutinized and is read into to the point of being absolutely ridiculous.

"hey tony, what do you know about the new offense that Haley is going to install?"

well, ive only briefly seen it in passing the rooms.

as you know, we arent allowed to meet with the coaches yet, and actually discuss anything football related.

all i know is the offense is new, it is different, and that me and the rest of my teammates are ready to get our noses into the playbook so that when the practices start we are ready to hit the ground running.

that is EXACTLY how someone with the capabilities to think before they speak would answer a very simple softball question.

"rosetta stone"
