    Hypothetical "Who do you trust?"

    Just for a scenerio for fun:

    In the last 2:00 of the Giants game, would you rather be watching our defense hold onto a lead, or watch Ben try to drive down the field for a game-winning TD?

    I think the game will be very close, and given that our defense has failed twice this year in similar situations, I go with Ben.

    I want Ben on the field trying to drive down and win the game. Normally conventional logic tells me you want the lead and let your defense make a play. The only way I go with that thinking now is if the defense shows up that we saw the last 2 weeks. If it's the defense from the first 5 games then no way..LOL

    Now the player I want handling the ball in that situation is Ben and Heath. No question.

    Agree on both accounts. Heath is money.

    No brainer...I want Ben with the ball!

    If this game is close, the team with the ball last wins...

    I would rather be up with 2 minutes left than be down with 2 minutes left.

    A few years ago it would have been a no-brainer to say the defense being out there to hold the other team but now its obviously Ben. He has showed us multiple times how capable he is of taking the team down the field when it counts the most to win a game, he has done it on the biggest stages.
