I was excited when we got Todd Haley. I thought he brought something that this team needed: a swift kick in the ass and a frank admission that we needed big time change. When he took over play calling duties I thought we would have an agressive offense that would try to punch the other team in the mouth, even if it missed. So far, however, Haley's play calling has been junk. Today he was callind dinky draw plays on 3rd and 20. Every third and long we had he ran some silly run play that had no hope to get us the yards we needed. The only time he didn't run on 3rd was 3rd and 1, an obvious run down. 3rd and 1 is 90% of the reason you pay LJ, or any NFL RB, a hefty salary. As the game drew on the running game was showing itself to be a failure, yet Haley stubbornly resulted to it all the more. The more it flopped, the more he ran it seemed. The two drives where we showed any willingness to go down field on them, we scored two touchdowns. Haley called and UBER CONSERVATIVE game which gave us no hope to win. Say what you will of the calibur of talent we have but it seemed like we didn't even try. I never felt like Haley was actively trying to beat the Eagles. Maybe the Chiefs were outclassed from jump, and we probably were. It is reasonable for this Chiefs team to fall to that Eagles team. I won't put the loss squarely oh Haley's shoulders, but I do blame his horrific play calling for the blowout.
I know you don't have Warner, Boldin, and Fitz. I also know you can't win without attacking your opponent.
Go big or go home.
