Yep, interceptions happen, some are forced some by great defensive efforts. Every QB is going to throw his share of interceptions.

I have noticed something else about Ben, I'm not saying it's a big problem YET but I am a little concerned with it. I've noticed that he's showing signs of "happy feet" in the pocket. At times he's a little panicky. He's moving his feet around even when there's no presence of pressure. I believe that this has accounted for some of his inaccurate throws.

I just hope that he becomes more comfortable as the season progresses because signs of happy feet while under no duress is a bad sign.

Before you decide to bash me for the comment, do as I do, TIVO the game and study his footwork. The signs are there. I know what he's been through with the crash, the surgery, the thumb and the lack of protection from last years O-Line and I know that it takes time to recover from all of that so don't bother replying with that stuff. I'm just simply pointing out something that I'm a little concerned with.

This years happy feet stems from Ben simply trying to make a play. Not because he's scared or antsy like last year. Ben has always had happy feet.

I think it's good Arians/Anderson are trying to turn Ben into more of a pocket passer, but trying to do it too much will waste Ben's natural talent...his deadly mobility. If you ask me, I'd rather see happy feet Ben rather than a statue back there at QB.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the most calm QB so far, since I've been a B&G die hard fan, was....Neil O'Donnell! Not Mike T, not Kordell, not Tommy, not Charlie either. Ben is no doubt ..... GREAT, but still edgy sometimes.
