Furthermore, being "open" in the NFL is a difference of inches (not even a yard). A WR has to be thrown open... and, again, it's hard to throw a WR open, when one can barely throw.
So Ben's terrible Cincy game was because of his ribs?

1st game back - 285 yds 3 tds 1int 88 rating

2nd game back - 339 yds 2td 1int 94 rating

Now his ribs flare up

3rd game back - 220 yds 1 td 2 int (including the pick 6 that lost the game) 58 rating
