Default An Observation

Did anyone else notice that Ben did not seem to be focused? Every time the camera showed him on the sideline he seemed as if his thoughts were elsewhere. Now, I'm not saying that I could ever tell what someone else was thinking at at any given time, I'm just saying that he usually looks like he has fire in his eyes when he's standing on the sideline---just begging someone to "Hold me back!". But yesterday, just a blank stare, chewin' his fingernails. Like he was pre-occupied with something else.
His game showed that to be the case....

I don't know if he wasn't focused. It was just a bad game. The entire offense had no rhythm. It was a weird gameplan. The last drive of the game was dreadful...and that was the way the entire offense looked.

You're right, but I saw him in pregame warmups and got the same impression.

Yea.... it was written all over his face. Hines also, as well as a few other players. It translated into the end result.
There's and old saing that goes, "Your only as good as you are between your own two ears"....
I submit that "several" players (it seemed to be on offense only.... we already knew about special teams) did not come into this game mentally prepared.... and we all know what happens when you try to do "anything" unprepared !!!!

Its like whoever was responsible for getting them prepared /practice.... did not do their job.....

Yea.... that "look" that Ben gave.... I've seen it a million times in the ring when I was around the Boxing world.... the guy that walked into the ring with that "I'm not really into this" or "I'm afraid look" or "I'm intimidated look " ALWAYS looses..... almost 100% of the time..... NOT GOOD !!

BB was throwing everything above the receivers. No trademark sliding catches anywhere. BA cannot make the throws, but he can make adjustments such as a run with the guard pulling or short dumps into the flat to get some rhythm going.

Seems everybody was off except for most of the defense and the kicking game.

They are better than that and they should come out next game much better. Looked like the media got to them. It is getting to me right now. If I hear one more "who dey" I think I'm gonna puke. The Ravens have more class than the bungles and the Ravens have NO class.

At least we still have a shot to win the division if we sweep the Ravens. If not, then we are looking at a wild card.

Worst I've seen Ben look in two years.

And I'm reading here that it's all Arians fault?

Oooooookaaaaaaaay.......

He'll bounce back next week, we'll win 5 of the next 6 and head into the playoffs 12-4. We'll be just fine.
