Default Re: So how do you take the pressure off the offensive and defensive lines?

ben needs to work on his dropback. when he has 4 seconds, he has one of the most beautiful, dropback, plant, and releases in the league (as seen in the TD bomb he threw in the 1st game against the browns last season).

however, nobody has 4 seconds for every throw. as nice as ben is, sometimes his dropback looks labored. perhaps casual and relaxed is the word.

whereas brady and manning almost always seem to have a phrenetic one with a quick pitter patter of the feet.

strange that ben is twice as mobile (and atheletic) as the both of them.

maybe bens qb coaches arent used to playing (or teaching about) the DE's of this generation, who are fast, explosive, and this eras prime players. definitely not players like m. williams, d. freeney, or j. peppers.

but ben is ben, and we cant ask him to change too much. after all, not everybody is gonna have a quick release like marino.

just an area that can possibly be improved on though. ben is still 1 of the best throwers on the run.
