Default Tell me what you think.

I was sitting at my house shortly after the loss today. Looking at bens stats and what thinking back to this past summer and everything thats happen. Is it safe to possibly consider that we may have a more friendly verison of Ryan Leif. One thing that was never questioned about leif was his physical attributes. As is the same with ben. But what you have to wonder is if ben can mentally handle the nfl.

Don't you think the motorcycle accident and the concussions have played a part in Ben's brain farts this year. I do bigtime. Hell Ryan Leaf was a tool. Ben is far from that.

thats exactly what i'm trying to get at. I know that his accident and the concussions have had everything to do with is struggles. He plays like he is scared. I'm just concerned that he cant mentally handle playing in the nfl. You cant be scared to take a hit if you are a qb

I think BAR none, what has hurt Ben the most is the LACK of an O-Line, and hence a Running game. Last year and '04 he only had to make a Spectacular Play or Two a game, now he is shouldering the load himself, at least in his mind. Hopefully he won't be set back far because of this Season.

Oh I agree you can't be scared. But I think we can throw this year out with Ben. I wouldn't judge him long term. I think he will be fine next year. One thing Ben showed early on in his career that he didn't get rattled. He is being rattled this year. Alot of it has do with the injuries but it doesn't help when your trying to come back from those injuries and the Oline sucks as well. I think Ben will be fine next year.

Ben seemed to handle it just fine previously.

I will chalk it up to Ben not being physically ready to go until October and the entire team not being emotionally ready to have the edge required of a defending champ, which put a greater load on Ben at a time he was not best equipped to handle it.

Let's wait for another bad year. Going into 2007, QB is a position that is nowhere near the problem OL, LB, and in recent weeks DB have become.

i'm not saying we should give up. I have seen alot of posts in here about how we should look into the draft for his replacement. I think the nfl is always about what have you done for me lately. But ben has done alot for this organization. He just needs to get his head back into that game

I agree dan. I think part of the problem to is the consistency at rb. I lost alot of faith in parker today. I think we need a running back that can run on the road. It's a fact that when ben throws over 25 times the result is normally a loss. we need a balanced offense
