    Ben's passer rating when trailing in the playoffs

    107.6

    64/90 860 8 5

    Not too bad considering his overall rating in the playoffs is 88.7.
    In response to his pleas, an officer said: "You think we've never arrested somebody that's made national media? ... We deal with the Bengals all the time."

    Neat stat, but hopefully it doesn't need to come into play this weekend.

    Just thinking out loud here ... maybe his increased performance when behind isn't surprising ... more passes than runs in that situation would be expected.

    Now ... are his POINTS up in that situation?



    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    He passes better when they are behind because more wides are on the field and Spaeth and Johnson are not.

    That's not the only reason. Ben is best when he can improvise and make room to pass with his scrambling/elusiveness. I don't think it's just because of the number of WR's but that he is in full control and calling most of the plays. But having that many Wr's can spread the field and he is obviously better when that happens.

    Spaeth and Johnson certainly aren't Heath Miller but they are not the main reason why Ben's passer rating is lower when ahead. His passer rating is higher when trailing because of one person. BEN.

    Spaeth and Johnson stink and they can't get open.

    When they are on the field more defenders are at the LOS also.

    More wides also mean more space for them because we spread them out, and it gives Ben and the wides more room to work.
