I'm grateful we have Ben in the middle of that wreckage. Unfortunately, I don't think he feels the same.
Yep. Glad to see I'm not the only one here who sees this. It's easy to blame the QB for an INT or a lost fumble, and I'll agree that he deserves SOME of the blame, but when a defense is EASILY able to run around the O-Line constantly, it's a miracle he gets any throws off at all.

More evidence that our O-Line is awful can be seen in the running game. I've been very hard on Mendenhall but it's difficult to get yardage when you have no holes to run through. The O-Line can't open ANYTHING up and the lack of the run game, coupled with a passing game that's always under pressure, is KILLING our offense.
