Ben will go down as a mediocre RZ QB for his career.

Ben was neither a consistently mediocre RZ QB nor poor on the road before Haley. Both those trends developed after that point.

So you're saying that Ben doesn't have the capability to change the original playcall in the RZ? Whatever call comes in, he MUST go with that?

He has the ability to change from some things to other things, not necessarily the ability to change drastically.

And lets be honest about 2 things as far as audibles go....

1. Haley is probably the worst in the nfl at getting the play call in on time.

2. Any audible is still going to be a play in the limited HaleyBall playbook

Right. The QB doesn’t have an open playbook when he audibles. Its usually 2 or 3 options. And the audibles are also part of the weeks gameplan. The team knows going in the options out of every play call. And I’m sure there are some plays where the audible isn’t an option.

I just laugh when people insist that Ben has a hand in designing the offense and installing the game plan. I’d bet a dollar to a donut he has no say in the installation of the weeks gameplan. Todd Haley designs and installs, should take about 3 minutes since it’s pretty much the same each week, and Aviators In The Rain signs off on it. Ben probably gets to voice his preference of plays within the game plan, but that’s probably it. I seriously doubt that other than maybe Peyton, there are any other QBs with that kind of authority over the offense.
Does the frustration Ben shows over what he’s getting from the sidelines look like a guy that’s had a say in the offense?

Which QB's have the ability to change the call "drastically?"

None. I've always heard the audibles are usually 2 runs and 1 pass.

You can then argue about "check with me" plays, and especially the patented "long hand-off"...but then you're really talking about chemistry and individual efforts outside the scheme.

Of course, more common today are option routes. Manning once joked, somewhat facetiously, that they only had "like 3 plays". Not sure how much option routes, outside of AB, PIT runs any more. The team simply doesn't have the focus and discipline for that, and the revolving door of young receivers hasn't helped.

Ben has made Pro Bowl alternate 3 times under Haley. He made it only twice before Haley.

Ben's best season was under Haley. With an improved starting cast, in 2014 he put the team on his shoulders and threw for 4900+ yards. 32 TDs. 9 INTS.

He had the 2nd highest QBR in the league 2015 under Haley despite missing a few games

Last year he declined against his peers to 11th. Then he whined about retiring in the off-season.

This year he has dropped off the map.

He had good years before Haley but his yards per game statline in some seasons were out 1979. He wasn't asked to throw much even in a league where pussified rules made it routine to average 300 ypg.

You guys are acting as if Ben never thrived under Haley. He has the greatest group of skill players (sans superstar TE) in the league.

Gee...wonder who changed? :roll:

Will the All-22 show the WRs consistently wide open? Or will they show every opposing team including the BROWNS playing as if they had Mel Blount, Rod Woodson and Troy Polamalu in their secondary?

Which seems more plausible...that Haley has changed or that Ben is old? Again, I don't like Todd Haley (like his wife though). The point here is if Haley sucked all these years, why is it only showing NOW?

What would happen if BR completely ignored haley's play call, and called his own for a TD in the red zone.

You think Haley or anybody else on the team would bitch?

Now flip that, still a BR call, and it results in a stop, and a THTD. Would any of us even know?
