Does anyone know what kind of expectations we hold for Big Ben? He has a 300+ yard game with two TD's and no Int's and he's not even on the list to choose from. I'm not saying he should be the player of the game, just pointing out the excellence he has been for us and how we have come to expect it.

Mendy played outta his mind, but I have to give some love to the O-line. That is the best I have seen them play as a unit in some time.
Dude, I'm telling you ... you don't need Jerome Bettis to get the extra couple yards by taking on the defender. That's what a NORMAL running back does. We've just forgotten what that looks like. Why else would people be getting so excited over a guy like Redman?

That's what I'm saying. Parker either cannot or will not finish his runs like a normal running back should. He would've gotten a lot less yards in that game.

Mendenhall deserves credit, but people should also know that you should EXPECT your running back to attack the holes like that. But since we've had a Parker-only offense for so long, we've come NOT to expect it. That post was more a dig at Parker than anything else.

Offensive line. NO BRAINER. Mendy and Ben shredded that Chargers defense, which is somewhat pedestrian, but still. I'm aware that Ben took 3 sacks, but come on, Mach 5 was mauling the Chargers front 7
