Ben was very inconsistent BUT I personally think it's coming from frustration of the little league playcalling.
Yep. I have always thought Ben should get more upset and vocal on offense.
Tonight was one of the few times in his career I have seen him flat out pissed.
8 minutes to go in the game Ben threw 6 passes in the second half at that point.
Guys like you got what you wanted. The evil BA was shown the door, and Haley's committed to running the ball and putting Ben in his place.
And the team has won 8 games and lost 10 since.
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...
Ben can't say anything. Because if he does he's the twice accused of rape QB who's never grown up.
He's basically in prison. Haley's the head guardsmen, and Rooney II's the Warden.
And inmate Ben has to sit there and take it.
Looks like we're going to have to block Crash's new IP again
This post is so perfect. As I'm driving home after the beagles kicked the field goal to go ahead by 10, and realized our offense has no chance of scoring 10 points, in 7 quarters let alone half of one, I was thinking, MAN I MISS BRUCE ARIANS.
Tomlin and Hailey are offensive, and I mean that in the most negative way possible.
The O had some life each time the ball was in Ben's hands. Sure the running game sucks, but what team in the NFL has balance this day and age? It's a non issue for the Broncos and the Seahawks if they rush for less than 100 yards in a game.
And the two time Sanders makes great plays on the ball and makes a catch he is out of bounds. What more can a QB do? Ben's not Payton Manning but he's someone to build the O around. You can't say that for at least 25 other teams in league.
Then add in that the defense is inept at creating pressure (against abysmal play by Dalton) and forcing turnovers (they allow an 80yd td drive after the punt on the series there was the pathetic tripping call) you have a team that's playing poorly on BOTH sides of the ball.

I think he did good considering what he had for an OL and Haley's play book....
No other QB would have done better under the circumstances.....
