But this one is just flat wrong. He WAS tanking the Jets game, it was obvious.
I think Haley wanted to be his own OC again. And he was probably justified in feeling that way - but his downfall was that he was always pissed at Cassel. You could tell in '11...he hated having Cassel under center...but he hated Palko even more.
I don't know if Haley was 'tanking' the game so much as using the opportunity to put the full spectrum of Pioli's deep and talented roster on display.
It was his biggest '**** you' to Pioli...
**** you, Pioli
