Ben is in his 8th year, and he may need to start thinking about whether he is going to be able to play 5 more years. He can not continue to allow himself to get murdered the way he has. And I put it on the head coach to convince and protect his 100 mil QB and 2-time SB winner, who happens to be in his prime.
I completely agree. As the head coach, he is ultimately responsible. If we can't count on our line to protect Ben, then ultimately it is Tomlin's fault. I blame Arians and the O-line on a regular basis, but if these same problems keep happening over and over, it's time for he head coach to take the blame.
I keep waiting for Tomlin to fix the problems, but so far nothing seems to be working.
