Especially with everything moving at game speed, which is a hell of a far cry from minicamp practice speed. Ben's also a proven commodity. Luck ain't.

I would rather have a QB who at least has a say so in what the offense runs than a big eyed rookie who is trying to "fit" in. Ben has been there and done that, I am sorry I dont want my veteran QB to be a yes man, esp since he has done well in the past.

An off hand remark does not mean he is bellyaching. The media did not get a full blown drama between Ben and Haley this off season and they will try to blow up any remark, (so will our forum members too it seems). I hope the new system works to this teams strength and right now Ben is one of its key components. With new blood coming in on a less than stellar line hopefully we can be more effective in rushing the ball.

I just want to be on record that as bad as Arians was as a OC this team led the league in TOP, now if we score more and do not lose TOP by a huge difference we will be better, but if we score the same and suffer from some quick strikes and many three and outs I believe our defense which is older in key positions will suffer.

no doubt!

if i was gonna pick one of the 2 to lead my favorite team to the superbowl next season, i would 100% select ben.

just like if i was gonna pick someone to win a teat suckling contest, i would also pick ben.

now if i were gonna pick a qb to learn a new playbook and be the most receptive to working with a new boss, ben would be pretty far down on the list.

i'm pretty sure i would chose luck over him in those regards (and luck better get used to it, because he will have a new coaching staff to get used to after 3 seasons.)

while i agree on paper, we tried to have a quick strike/big play offense under arians. i would much rather be top 5 in scoring and 21st in TOP.

it seems as simple as Ben looking forward to the "new" offense, while taking opportunities as they come to give feedback and/or recommendations. I don't think anyone should read anything into it beyond that.

In fairness to Ben, he hasn't been required to know a professional NFL playbook since 2006. That's not his fault.

I'm a Ben fan but I can't help but notice some posters who trash other offensive players playing in the same system as he does. Mainly Wallace and Mendenhall's critics. C'mon folks, can't have it both ways.

As Tony stated, Ben has had some bonehead moments when a mike is stuck in his face. And a few other embarassing run ins with the law, but he's our bonehead. Just callin a spade a spade.

I don't see it as "the system" they're trashing.........just many like Ben but find Wallace and Mendenhall more pompous and unlikeable. I don't have a problem with others calling out certain other players if they don't like them. It seems as if there has been an atmosphere created where its ok to bash Ben....but not ok to bash others if you see fit.
Of course, it can go both ways....all fans are different.
