Haley is back

Haley is back

As the Cardinals offensive coordinator, Todd Haley made Jim Johnson's defense look confused and toothless last January in Arizona. Now that he's the head coach in K.C., let's see what he does vs. Sean McDermott. This is a big game for McDermott. Will we see the aggressive and opportunistic defense of Week 1 or the overmatched and out-of-sync unit that collapsed against  New Orleans? Based on the early pressure the front four is getting, they look more like the former. Vick was used as a decoy in the opening series, then ran a wildcat option when they got the ball back. Can a dog-killer survive in a wildcat? Eagles employing wildcat often in second series. Haven't seen this must single-wing in a pro game since Pete Gray played outfield for the St. Louis Browns.
