I have to agree preacher we could not stop the pass and if they had a good deffense we would have
been in trouble.

I'm eager and excited to see what Big Ben can do in the new balanced offense. It should be a great year.

"Last year, if we took a shot downfield and it was incomplete — or, heaven forbid, intercepted — we weren't throwing it again for a long time. And since we knew we were only throwing 15-20 times, we were so careful with doing this and that.

"It will be nice to know that Bruce isn't going to handcuff us."

I respect Ben's knee jerk response that he let the team down. But the run 1st, run 2nd, throw third remark blames everone else. This has worked for us for years, now blame it on the strategy.......Ben was not the only problem but after after accepting blame he immediately passes it to others?
If I could be like that,
what would I do,
What would I do..."
