Do you know how many times Ben was sacked in the red zone? That would be an interesting stat. I'm not going to take the time to figure it out if you already know the answer.
Of course, there are two sides to that coin, keeping Ben off the ground -- the OL doing a decent job and the receivers getting open, otherwise Ben is going to hold onto the ball and try to make a play.
Yeah, I like JC's hands, but he doesn't seem to get much separation. Then you got the guys like former Steeler Wallace, Brown, and perhaps former Steeler Sanders who got separation but who couldn't hang onto the ball. Remember that play in the second game against the Ravens when Sanders caught the ball wide open in the middle of the field and looked like he was headed for paydirt? But no, he coughed it up, or he would likely have had 2 TD catches for the season instead of one. The only guy who could get separation and hang onto the ball was Heath.
