Question Whats Up With Ben?

Can we have a serious discussion about why Lefty came in and our Offense looked 100% better. This is not a trade Ben or a Bench Ben thread, but seriously.

Don't get it twisted, I am a huge Big Ben fan. But you would have to have blinders on to not see or admit there was a HUGE DIFFERENCE.

Part of me thinks that the Oline woke up after they seen there Million dollar QB go down and the other half knows that Lefty was simply making better reads and getting the ball out.

I just hope that while Ben is out he takes the time to get it right. Lets go Steelers.

I think Ben's shoulder has been bothering him more than anybody's let on. He's been off for weeks now.

Could be. That would make sense.

I think that maybe it has something to do with the Skins gameplanning for Ben and not Lefty. Not really sure why though.

Several recievers dropped easy passes tonight. But it's obvious Ben's shoulder is hampering his play.

Well Ben's been beat up a lot and I think it finally had an effect on him as you can see, he didn't play in the 2nd half at all. Also the receivers dropped a lot of passes early in the game. And also the Redskins game planned to control Ben, not Leftwich.

I think the shoulder and the general beating he's taken this season has started to affect him. I said during the 1st half of the Ravens game that he looked tentative and gunshy because of all of the punishment he'd taken, and it still holds true today.

(cue the "quit making excuses for Ben" and "start Leftwich over Ben" posts in 3...2...1...)

"easy"? have you made those types of receptions? wr's dropped passes where they were getting held or blasted.
