Default Our ProBowl QB holds on to the ball too long

Its about 12 min left in the fourth against the redskins and if you ask me Ben holds on to the ball too long as some of you have already stated. Well by watching Byron tonight get rid of the ball on time and effectively i am reassured that he does hold on to the ball to long. Ben in my opinion has been hit to many times this year and has some sort of shell shock. What do you think?

I don't think anybody can argue against the idea that he holds onto the ball too long.

I'm not sure if he is "shell shocked", but he definitely looks afraid to pull the trigger and let the ball fly. Byron looks great out there, I'm really glad to see our backups taking advantage of their opportunities.

I hope Bryon works up his trade value for the offseason

I completely agree. He needs to sit a few weeks and refocus to get some confidence back.

Thank you captain obvious. You don't think everyone in the world already knows that, as well as Ben, Tomlin, and his teammates. But you gotta take the good with the bad. And then when Ben extends the play by holding on longer and scrambling, you'll be the same ones that jump for joy.
