Default bens pump fakes

How many of you think he actually passes it on the first fake? i watched the Tites game again i do not know how he holds onto it, but it sure as hell moves safeties & corners. Im on the couch and get faked out im guessing 50 or 60% of the time. Im am just amazed he holds on to the ball
Don't do anything by half. If you love someone, love them with all your soul. When you go to work, work your ass off. When you hate someone, hate them until it hurts.

I believe that today more than ever a book should be sought after even if it has only one great page in it. We must search for fragments, splinters, toenails, anything that has ore in it, anything that is capable of resuscitating the body and the soul.

I think a pair of lefties, Ken Stabler, and Boomer Easiason, were the best at pump-faking the secondary that I have ever-seen:
living in Floriduh, I don't get to see much of 'em Stillers any-more, but I'll have to watch Roethlisberger more-carefully to evaluate this.

That's one positive thing about the steelers Collinsworth actually agrees with

The Patsies fans were talking smack about it....but....

On Santonio's TD (and the drive leading up to it), Ben pumped and dumped it off to Ward for a huge gain, and then he pumped on the next play and faked Chris Hope out of his jockstrap for the Holmes TD.

Big Ben is da man.....

It seemed Ben used the pump fake a lot more than he usually does.
Was it because he saw it was working so just kept doing it?

I just hope he doesn't fall in love with it. Especially when he doesn't have the time to try and use it.

can't say that I'm faked out considering the angle they show games in is a lot easier to see if a ball is released or not than from a DB's POV (which can also be much further away)
