So, yeah, all the bad crap you point out about Ben, (over the top in most cases imho) I'll take that as a fair exchange for the success we have had with him.
Besides, they were one inept Chargers tackle of Ray Rice on 4th and 29 away from not making the playoffs.
On which Rice picked up only 28 1/2 yards if you go back and rewatch that play.
And on that Moore blunder, while Moore was obviously at fault, the fact is that Flacco just outhrew his coverage. It speaks to the howitzer strapped to his shoulder. Versus 95% of the league, Moore is in position to make the play. He just didn't anticipate Flacco arm + the Mile High air, and the effect that had on that pass.
And Flacco's throw in Denver was only 55 yards (in the thin air of Denver no less) the rest was YAC by Jones, and I think Jacoby Jones even had to break stride a little to wait on the ball. Let's not give Flacco more credit than is due. That was a blunder (gift) on the part of Moore, who should be used to playing in the thin air of Dennver.
I think of Ben's ints coming more from misjudging the defense (or defenders) and not because he throws jump balls. Sometimes he cant step into the throw (like the one in NE) cause a defender is in his face though or like the one in the SB vs GB.
Maybe our offense should be a little more like Baltimore's, which is, chuck the ball deep a lot and hope for PI calls or that one of your guys can run under it. Unfortunately none of our WRs show the same fight for the ball that Smith and Bolden have.
No jump balls? Really? Have you been watching the games this year? Ben has thrown passes to the sidelines that anyone could do. He'll drop back and heave one in the air that looks like he threw it with his eyes closed.
