Default Big Ben

I know that Ben will have a more in-depth understanding of the offense this upcoming year however, I truly believe that his rib / thumb injury was the underlying cause of his playoffs inaccuracies.

I think the injury may have been some of it..but the majority was, he just got plain worn out..he hit that rookie brick wall, and while he still battled thru it and we won games, u could tell when he was just mentally drained.

every rookie goes thru it, but its more evident w/ QB's of course.

and he's got the best DC in the business in Lebeau teaching him to read defenses.. along with Whipple.. so he's got the teachers, now he's gotta learn it!

I think Im almost less worried about him this year..becuz he saw so much last year, which was valuable experience for his future.
