Default Pros and Con's of having dennis the menace

the main con is well.. not having big ben.

however having dennis in at QB does have pros

-making plays with his legs vertically

-having the ravens to plan differently for him as our QB

-FINALLY running the ball more.

Cons

-lacks the leadership ben brings

-untested, which will spell bad news in a road game against baltimores defense

However theres not much to go on...we havn't seen the kid play AT ALL in the pro level.

whatever happens happens

that is when guys like hines and heath need to step up and be the leader on the offensive side of the ball tomorrow with ben being out.

Flaco hasn't thrown a td pass in his last 3 games. and its primetime
unfortunely with the way the steelers luck is going this season, flacco will come out of his slump and kill us.

No turnovers? Absolutely none? Come on! A 2nd year QB making his first start and not a single interception and over 200 yards? Come on. It's not P Manning back there, it's Dennis Dixon.

I actually agree... You are going to throw turnovers when you play the Raves, especially when you're basically a rookie.

P Manning had a lot of INT's ..so im not sure where your going with that.

but its not like were asking him to make big throws down field. all we need is for him to manage the game.
