Default Re: Last year a blessing in disguise??

I think last year was kind of a blessing because Ben and the rest of the team learned from their mistakes and they all worked so hard in the off-season. I know Ben will be back!!

Honestly I think last year gave Ben a chance to see how the other half lived. His first 2 years he was the king of the mountain so to say. He could do no wrong. Now that he had his trials and tribulations he seems he is more focused and working hard to prove all the ney sayers wrong and to become king of that mountain again. I've always said, what doesnt kill you only makes you stronger. Ben has shown he is the leader of this team now and Im not saying he will win MVP...but he will be the old Ben.

Even with the Super Bowl win, we weren't really given credit. I'm still smarting from all the media/Seahawks whining about how we didn't deserve to win. I'd bet that Ben is burning with the desire to someday be Super Bowl MVP and show all the doubters, even more so after last year's disappointment.

Time will tell, but last year may indeed have been a blessing in disguise with regard to the drafting of Timmons and Woodley, just as the 6-10 season in 2003-04 led to the 11th pick in the 2004 draft. That turned out pretty well.
