    We definitely have bigger problems then QB, like who's going to start on the O-Line, and will our defense actually be able to stop teams late on games.

    Redman is a decent situational back, but he's certainly not cut out for every down. I can't wait to see Mendy and Dwyer together.

    Ben isn't the only QB in the league who can escape a pas rush, shake off the grasp and extend a play, . . it's talked about like it's some magical mystery power . . . it isn't.
    It's Americans man.

    They should watch some rugby, preferably my Springboks or the All-Blacks how to evade so many tacklers.

    I didn't see anything exceptional out of Ben yesterday. I didn't see anything terrible outside of a few throws, but nothing exceptional. Ben, and a few other veteran QBs, all looked like they had a little trouble with their accuracy yesterday for whatever reason. Hopefully he can pick it up in the next few weeks.

    I sure wish Manning would have had that issue.

    Yeah I was really surprised by that. Most of the QBs in the early games seemed to have a lot of issues with accuracy, and I figured Manning would follow suit seeing as he hasn't taken a snap in a regular season game in over a year. Granted, he is Peyton Manning though.

    Ben didnt look "great' yesterday. You know what "great" qb's do every year. They seem to take it to the next level or improve in there game every single season. Im not saying Ben can not do this, but I want to see an improvement this year. You dont have a 13 play drive and end up in a FG, 10 play drive for 33 yard for a FG, yes Ben cant control what the line does, but holy **** he has the weapons to do so. He has PROBOWL Heath Miller,Wallace,Brown and Sander is a good receiver also. When we get it inside the 5 yardline it should be a td about 90% of the time.

    He has to make that throw to Heath.
    3. I think he mis-managed the clock at the end of the first half. There was no reason to clock that ball on first down, over 50 seconds on the clock (or something close to that if I'm remembering correctly) there was plenty of time, we even still had a time out. To give up a down like that when you know it's going to be a shootout is a HUGE mistake!

    Did anybody really expect Ben to be exceptional last night?........First game in the Haley offense and yet more OL injuries doesn't help at all........What is disturbing to me about the INT is that Heath Miller was wide open.....I think Miller goes for 20+ there.....Plus Ben missed Wallace wide open for a TD earlier...........But when a constant musical chairs at OL really doesn't help the QB......Plus it would be nice for Ben to have a WR like Demaryius Thomas.......Or look at what Cutler has in Brandon Marshall and Ashlon Jeffery......I like the Steelers WR's but they don't have that tall physical WR with speed............When you have an OL in constant flux it would be nice for Ben to have a WR to just throw it up and let the WR go get it.....
