    It's not an economic loss for the Ravens - they still have 8 home games this season, just like every team in the NFL.

    If Ben throws the ball away like Manning, Steeler fans will start bitching at him for "giving up" on the play.

    what's up Crash... you should really think about changing your auto responses.

    Ben has thrown a few balls away the last 2 years and no one has bitched about it.

    You best believe that. The Ravens (or any football team) would b1tch$l@p the Orioles game attendance, if they played a game in the same city on the same day.

    Honestly, a lot of it has to do with the QB. Peyton and Brady make their reads incredibly fast and get the ball out. Ben does not...

    I gotta agree that it mostly has to do with Ben's style of play. You could even see it when Batch or Lefty came in to play last year. Somehow the OLine looks magically improved in pass pro with another QB. Haley should be able to help Ben out a little by having more 3 step drops in the playbook. But you don't want to take away what makes Ben special. It's a seemingly impossible line to figure out.

    BA took the approach of letting Ben chuck away downfield. Haley seemed to take the opposite approach last year. Hopefully we can find the middle without getting Ben murdered.

    Ben is a different kind of QB. Doesn't mean he's better or worse, just different. Aaron Rodgers is also different from Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.
