    Sadly for you, its already been established that Landry Jones is Coastal’s son, and he’s very disappointed in him.

    I think the more straightforward answer to this is that teams adjusted to what we were doing.

    People talk about Brady doing dink and dunk, but NE have had to adapt that over the last few years.

    Now, that should open up the deep ball for us, but that’s when accuracy becomes a problem.

    There is foundational truth to make this statement valid.

    The problem isn't Haley. It is Ben. How many times has he missed his wide open target? His accuracy was never his best attribute but it has fallen off and it's obvious. How many times has he misread the defense and threw to a guy when another was wide open?

    Before Ben extended plays and would "make" the play. This also caused to be sacked a lot and this has taken a toll on him physically. Now, when the pressure comes and gets close he's different. Doesn't really throw it away out of bounds as much as trying to make a play by throwing it to a guy covered or not. He's making bad decisions, too many turnovers and with the weapons at his disposal and an OL dominating he has no excuse.

    Remember- in camp he had every third day off.... Not much practice, Bryant wasn't there and neither was Bell.
    During the season the team is off on Tuesday, Ben is also off on Wednesday,!!! He plays on Sunday and doesn't touch a football again until Thursday. Use it or lose it!!! And Ben is losing it!!

    Agreed on the playcalling, and it may have been underthrown. However, it didn't help that the concussed giraffe we have at #2 WR didn't do a thing to fight for it either.. you know, like adjusting to the throw?

    To much of a power struggle between Haley and Ben. If their is an early exit, or a total Offensive breakdown in the playoffs somewhere I feel he will be replaced.
    Super Bowl or bust for Haley. If I see another bubble screen I"m gonna go through the screen.

    Yes Ben has not been the Ben of old. His struggles have been discussed over and over. Until the 2nd half of the Dolts game. Now there was the Ben of old! And changed some plays. Hopefully we see this Ben the rest of the season. And Haley lost his marbles because of it.
