Default Will Tomlin do the right thing: Pull Ben?

Okay, just throwing this out there....

What if during the first half its obvious that Ben's laying an egg. Will coach do the right thing and put in Lefty? Or will he try to let Ben recover?

I think that's my greatest fear in today's game - Ben. Of course maybe the D will give us a game that it doesn't really matter.

Thoughts?

I think you shouldn't think so much.

I could go with either one. We all know we could rely on Lefty if things get rough, but we still trust Ben wholeheartedly.

i think coach tomlin has the grapefruits to tell ben that he is sucking and is going to be on the bench and BL is going in. i dont see tomlin being afraid to do that if that is what is in the best interest of this team winning and going to the AFCC game.

Why even think like that on Gameday.

You dance with the one that brought you. Yeah I hear people saying we are dancing with our D, very true but Ben did lead 5 fourth quarter comebacks so its hard justifying pulling him unless effected dramatically by the concussions. The only way I see him benched is if he complains about headache etc....It seems there are actually people who would like to see Lefty start, not saying you ,but I do get a feeling from some people. It really makes no sense, he is our guy and you can't second guess every decision, interception, or fumble and want to put someone else in. I guess its the instant gratification world we live in.

i think if he hadnt suffered that concussion people wouldnt be so worried about him. i hope that he does step up and makes the chargers secondary look like the wimps they are. but if he starts to play bad, you cant give him time to make up for it b/c it could be too late and they could be hitting the links next week instead of getting ready to play the ravens.
