Ben isn't going to blame his offensive line. He takes all the blame. Besides, he had 23 sacks his rookie season. If it were all his fault, it would have showed up then. He prevented just as many sacks last year with his ability to break tackles and move, then any amount of sacks that were purely on him.Originally Posted by Oviedo
You know, I think I might stop arguing about this. There is no use. Everyone's answer is checkdowns. But they forget our RB had to stay in and help block that pitiful offensive line. And Parker can't catch anyway. 2004,2005, 8.9 yards per pass, and about 20-25 fewer sacks. Some of you want a quick fix. Oh, it can't be the line. That would mean its time to rebuild. ANd we can't have that. If it weren't for Ben, we would have won 6 games last year. Remember when Batch came in and played the last game? He took no sacks. He got rid of the ball. But his offense PUNTED the ball 8 of the 1st 9 drives. He didn;t have time for his receivers to get open. He threw incomplete passes cause he doesn't have the ability to break tackles and run around and throw like Reothlisberger. Hence , the offense sucked. That's what would have happened if Ben would have thrown sooner.
