    Emmanuel Sanders

    Is it time to sit him and make him study his play book before he sees the field again ? He seem lost at times and I think we might get more production from Cotchery.

    Perhaps he need to spend at least as much time watching film as he spends on facebook.

    You might as well say the same for Antonio Brown. Neither of them seem to know the playbook very well.

    Also, you can go ahead and mark those 3 non catches from today on Ben. He overthrew Manny almost everytime.

    Manny did have a nice catch today for a big first down. Both he and AB still have issues running the correct routes, we can hope that improves as the year goes on. Plus we have to remember it takes a long time for a receiver to be able to read his Quarterback the way that Ben, Heath, and Santonio can do. When Holmes was here, he was so in tune with Ben it was uncanny.

    I can't say that Ben missed Sanders when it seems to always be Sanders, if he runs the wrong route Ben will always miss him. How often does Ben miss Hines, or Wallace?

    Sitting him with the understanding that the team can't afford him to be on the field when he doesn't run the right routes should get his attention.

    Ben overthrew Emmanuel on at least two deep balls when he was wide open. Can't blame him for that.

    Ben seems to be doing that a lot this year. Balls just seem to sailing on Ben, for whatever reason. And then he can't seem to lead Wallace enough!

    Probably can't plant and fire like he wants to cause of the foot.

    Would be a reasonable explanation, but he had a problem with overthrowing receivers long before the foot injury.

    I just think its tough to learn the WR position in the NFL. For whatever reason, most WRs can't just come and play in their first few seasons. Look at guys like Burress, Santonio, Wes Welker, even Calvin Johnson, T.O., and the list goes on. It's rare to see a guy come in and dominate as a rookie or second year guy (although some have). I think we have to patient with Sanders and AB.

    I think they are out of sync, but Ben missed passes to everybody in the second half.. Sanders running down field and Ben just out throws him 2 times has to be on Ben also..
