    I agree. Our play last year was awful and we still won the division. If we can just get average initially while the unit learns, grows and comes together - we should be in good shape. With any luck, this can be a group we ride to elite o-line play in the future.

    I look at it this way. The OL we saw last year was awful with three guys on a serious decline, and two guys playing out of position, with a better guard sitting on the bench. The line yesterday was also not good, but should be ascending. Two rooks playing their first games, and a group who barely played together during the pre-season. With such a young, raw, talented group they should only get better.

    I didn't think Ben was "in mastery of his game". He missed a lot of easy 5 yard throws & his long balls he has to put air under them & hope the WR outmuscles DBS for them. He was clutch in second half & end of game to DJ when it mattered most.

    may 2008 was when a lot of us bailed on the Trib boards and the vitriol that was spewed there and came over here for a better experience. That environment held pretty good until around 2 years ago when a few keyboard commandos decided life just wasn't worthwhile unless they could demonstrate their superiority in all things football by calling other posters idiots, morons, racist, etc.......

    I'm not the only who has noticed a lot of long time quality contributors have simply vanished in recent years.

    my point was mastery within the confines of he knew exactly what was coming and what he needed to do. Now as to his 38 year old body and repaired elbow making the throw - I agree the physical skills are in decline. Let's hope his knowledge and understanding of the game will compensate for diminishing playmaking ability.

    I've never seen a more vile, disgusting, classless inappropriate insult than that one.
