Let's not get crazy here people with saying Ben is as bad as last year, he can't do this and he can't do that. This kid is a gunslinger and he's going to force the issue no matter what. Even when the protection is good Ben is fearless and isn't afraid to try and squeeze it in. We are different team than last year and this offense can work if it's run right and I know Ben can lead us.
Having said that yes he needs to learn when and where to do it and learn to see the field more but Ben is a lot like Brett Favre; yes I said that because I think he is. Now he's not on Favre's level yet by any means but he has the same mentality that Brett has with the ball. He's not afraid to force the issue and he relies on his receivers to make plays and expects them to there and in the right spot when they are called upon.
Again, Im not saying Big Ben is Favre just yet by any means, he still has a long way to go but let's not get crazy here and start saying Ben can't do this and can't do that. He is still young and learning how to be a great QB and that takes time but I know he can do it and he's got the right attitude. He needs the help of his offensive line and when he doesn't get it he is going to force the issue even more to help carry the team. That's just how it is so we all better get used to it.
It could be worse, we could have Tommy or Kordell again.
