I've been the biggest Ben supporter ever. Maybe not here on this board... but in general. His inability to get rid of the ball quickly is KILLING this team...

Sure, the O-line isn't that good... but even when they give him even a tiny bit of protection he holds on to the ball until he's tackled... _not_ good....

<sigh>

I would love to see a state for games with more than 7 sacks by a QB....

:Agree

If we can get some decent play calling, we will successfully mask our OL problems.

A GOOD OC is the missing piece. We need to get someone who will acknowledge our weaknesses and work around them... rather than trying to run the same broken plays again and again.

Yes - Ben is the problem....not the crappy line, not the crappy special teams, not the fact our DB's play 8-10 yards off the ball, not our aged defensive line, & certainly not our genius OC. And who could forget our GM who put all this into place?

Nope it's all Ben. :roll:

Thank you Lou!!! I have been screaming this for two years.

He certainly turned it around in the 2nd half. Maybe it is the fact that every play BA calls takes 15 minutes to develop.

Regardless... I feel that Ben could've gotten rid of it w/ that one sack. He does hold on to the ball too long at times... However, that's also what makes him great...

I just wish he or whoever would adjust to quicker throws/routes sooner in a game instead of having to wait until half time.

Was it just me, or did Ben actually hit the RB a few times?
