Flip, i would agree with you if you said the same 3 years ago.
Ben can't do the same things he used to do.
He is older, slower and probably shell-shocked at this point.
He can't carry this team on his shoulders any more, they are too heavy now
But that's exactly what they are asking him to do. Only now? It's more predictable.
I dont know why some fans "dont get" this pretty obvious POV.

The fans OUTSIDE of Pittsburgh appreciate him far more than the locals do.
It's the desire to only see black and white in our chaotic gray world. I think it's kinda a charming quality to not see the fault in something you love. Sometimes I wish I could live in that perfect world

That'd make a great caption contest. I can't tell if he's sleeping. Or she's photobombing him? Or both? Or something else completely.

I agree Ben is the best QB this franchise has ever had but he needs to do better. The OL IS THE PROBLEM with this offense but Ben needs to recognize that and make changes to how he plays. Did you see the graphic last night where Cutler was getting rid of the ball in less than 2 seconds. That is what Ben needs to do whether he likes it or not.
