True. We also have to factor in the fact that he's a new father. I don't like discussing the effects of a player's personal life in regards to how it may affect their play - but that is a pretty big life change! I'm curious how Poppa Ben's gonna play with a child at home - of course, Ben may play exactly the same as always. But there's always the chance that being a dad now, he might subconsciously change his style of play to some degree. Who knows, maybe he'll play a little safer - it's not only logical, but biological, that he would want to stay healthy raising his son. This could be a good thing. Ben's an elite quarterback and I don't want to see his career end like Bradshaw's...
