Taking a look at Ben's career QB rating stats for 1st-4th down and goal he looks to be wildly inconsistent:

  • * Passing
    *Situation G * QBRat Comp Att Pct Yds Y/G Y/A TD Int
    *1st & Goal 32* 63.4 13 27 48.1 78 N/A 2.9 11 2
    *2nd & Goal 43* 106.1 33 53 62.3 141 N/A 2.7 23 0
    *3rd & Goal 39* 77.1 21 40 52.5 106 N/A 2.7 14 2
    *4th & Goal 5 * 109.7 2 3 66.7 2 N/A 0.7 2 0


With a compressed field, the QB must read pre-snap and make quick decisions with the ball. This obviously is not Ben's style. We desperately need to develop the run game in this area of the field.
