    Re: Dear Ben,

    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....

    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.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...
