Defense-----pressure on the QB so the LB's
Offense----OL pretty much stunk in the big games, not sure why so many are blaming Ben, when both Baltimore games showed how bad the O-line played this year
ST--Gardocki was bad

The reason Ben gets so much blame its simple. When the team wins the QB usually gets to much credit and when the team losses the QB gets the most blame. I agree the Oline sucked as well but 22 INT's speaks for itself. I'm still a huge Ben fan always will be. But he had a rough year.

You can add 5 fumbles to the 22 INT's. By the way, most of his interceptions have nothing to do with the OL. When he throws into double coverage, when he underthrows or overthrows a WR and gets picked, he could have 25 guys in front protecting him, that would still happen. He played pretty bad this year, that's a fact.

Ok first who said the Oline had anything to do with Ben's 22 INT's? So before you bring that shit up you better learn to read. I agree Ben had a terrible year. But the Oline also gave up over 45 sacks. Thats not to impressive.

Sorry BGF, I quoted you for the 22 INT but for the rest of my point, I wasn't replying to you personally. I was replying to other people saying his INTs were imputable to the OL. The OL is clearly responsible for the sacks although some of them could have been avoided if he had thrown the ball away.

Bottom line, we both agree, he had a terrible year and so did the OL. Take care.

ST. Gotta agree with you here on Gardocki. I was actually hoping they kept the young kid from training camp and now I don't remember his name. Gardocki has lost the leg. We may have 2 new kickers next year.
His name was Mike Barr!! I met him and he was really nice!! We talked for like 10 minutes and he was a great punter!!

Makes him look like a depressed man. With the way the season was going, it looked even worse.
