Not to this extent. He missed two games, in 5 years, that he couldn't have played in. One in 2009 and one in 2011.
It's funny hearing Rooney, "Our priority is keeping Ben healthy"
But they have no clue how to do it.
How do they do it? Ben has to be the hardest quarterback in the NFL to protect. You never know where he might end up on any given play. I love Ben, but sometime he is his own worst enemy when it comes to taking sacks. His never give up on a play attitude is awesome, but it does lead to hits, hits that can be avoided. Ben doesn't want to change, most fans don't want him to change and I hope he never changes, but protecting Ben is not an easy task.
