Before this season, I was certain Ben would one day be in the HOF. Now I'm not so sure. Is it possible that Ben is playing his way out of the HOF?

He's playing the worst ball of his career. And we can point fingers and blame at everyone around him, but it still looks bad. It's looking more and more like Ben really needs a great team around him to be successful.

Did a great D carry Ben for many years? Was his supporting cast on offense that good that it made his job easy?

Could Ben just be a Trent Dilfer that's a little bigger, stronger, and can move in the pocket to make a miracle play every now and then?

Ben's one tough SOB. He's made some of my favorite plays in the history of the franchise. But I think it's also fair to ask, is he really that good?
