My concern is the offensive line playing better. You know Ben was scrambling a lot and eluding the pass rushers to make those plays aqainst the ravens.

Not like Tom Brady who can sit back in the pocket and make a sandwich before he has to get rid of the ball.
Yeah...

but Ben came out and SPECIFICALLY thanked his O line for giving him time and protecting him!

you sure he wasn't being sarcastic? or perhaps he's sadistic and enjoys being chased by pass rushers....i'm not sure of the exact # of pressure Bmore had,but it seemed to me it was about 12 out of the 16 times he dropped back.

Ben always seems to thank the o line no matter what and that's a good thing, but come on dude they're defenders all over you like 50% of the time.

maybe he's happy as long as they don't get him killed on the field. and they got the win so he must be happy about that

When they get the OL fixed (it will be after this season, unfortunately), and I have a lot of confidence that they will, and Ben actually starts getting some time to throw, watch out, NFL.

And yet, did anyone hear Mel Kiper on Mike & Mike this morning? Asked which quarterback other than Manning or Brady he'd start a new team with, he said without hesitation.....Carson Palmer. I. Will. Never. Understand. This.

Not only that, his next choice as "someone who's really come on" and would be worth considering for that list? Derek Anderson. All I can say is, we had better destroy the Browns on Sunday.

"Big Ben averaged a phenomenal 8.8 yards a throw in his first two seasons in the NFL and is headed for his third season in four years of eight-plus yards per throw. No one in the modern era — not Johnny Unitas, not Dan Marino, not Joe Montana, and not Brady or Manning — has approached such efficiency"

Great read Jazzbird! This is one stat that blows my mind.

LOL! Gotta love Palmer frenzie. Eventually someone is going to look at the W-L column and notice that Ben is a winner and Carson is not. Derek Anderson is a flavor of the week.

This is great article by the Sun. This is the kind of thing I expected to hear after the Monday Night Massacre of the ravens---I was shocked that there was really no word except---the Ravens sucked. Glad to know someone is paying attention. Thanks for the read.
