The vaunted dream team defense, didn't look so dreamy in preseason game #2.
Yeah Yeah I know it's preseason but still, I'm encouraged at how Ben looked
tonight during the time with the starters in the game. 8/12 125 yds and 2 TD's.
He read the coverage well, bought time, and was able to beat the blitz on several occasions. The offense held the ball for 23:03 in the first half, in which nearly all the starters for both teams were on the field.
That pass to Mewelde Moore on the 2nd drive was a thing of beauty. Wide open, behind the blitz and into the redzone. Overall you have to be encouraged with how well
he played compared the few snaps he took last week when he got knocked
around and left the game.
Incidentally, he also told Pam Oliver that his foot is feeling good right now and he's pleased overall with how he's progressing getting ready for the regular season.
