Default Does Ben hold onto the ball too long because he can't read defenses?

He seems to miss some easy chances or reads a lot. I love the guy as a player but sometimes I wonder how hard he hits the film room. I'd like him to play a very long time but at the rate he's going he'll be done in 3 years for the pounding he takes.

Ben holds on to the ball too long at times because he has a gunslinger's mentality. He wants and likes to make big plays. The stuff about him not being able to read defenses is BS - he can read them just fine.

This is a joke, right?

No. He's just looking to make a play.

If he didn't study defenses, it would show in his play.

In today's NFL, any players career could be over in 3 years. It just takes one hit.

Ben doesn't pump fake for nothing. He uses it to manipulate the D. You don't do that if you can't "read" the defense.

Sickening. All Ben does is WIN, mainly due to the fact that he does hold the ball longer then usual, and all people do is bitch about it.

If Ben was worried about getting hit, he'd dump the ball more often. If he's not worried , I'm not worried. Did you watch Collins? All we had to do was look at him and he dumped it.

Ben's wears his big boy pads. He obviously isn't worried.
