Randle El wanted way to much money. I love the guy, but sheesh he wasn't worth that amount he got.

I believe turnovers play a huge role in our dismal season thus far, but, as much as I hate to say this - I think big head syndrome may have infected some of our guys. A pinch of stubbornness on Ben's part can be added to the mix, as well.

TOO much passing.....reduced running game/no Bettis. This has inevitably increased the sacks & interceptions.

Winning teams have a good running game from getting ahead and then pounding the ball. Losing teams have lots of passing yards from trying to make up a deficit before time runs out. It's a symptom, not a cause.

Turnovers, turnovers, turnovers!!

And I really think the one player that was the biggest loss was the Bus. Not on the field, but in the locker room. Not only was he a great leader, but they were determined to get him a ring before he left.........that's why he stayed one more year. He believed in Ben and the team could rally for the cause.

I thought that they would rally for their coach this year.........that they wouldn't let him go out with only one ring..........I was wrong. I also think that Ben's accident stalled the momentum for this year. I think Ben thought he could snap right back like he did after the knee surgery last year and it wasn't to be. (foolish boy......I still love ya, though!)

I do have a real good feeling about next year. A full years recovery for Ben and the humiliation of this season and what went wrong will drive them to new levels. I believe.
