Commense with the raping and pillaging.

BR put himself in this position. there are no excuses for not studying(not saying that he isn't) or performing well. he is given way too much money for practically any excuse to be valid.

I have no problems with Ben's performance on the field last year. Even considering the Cleveland game, (which I'm still trying to forget), he managed to have a record braking season.

Well, so much for my theory that his woes will make him work harder and be at the complex day and night to show the Rooneys how dedicated he is. Post-Gazette reports that OTA's started Monday, and Ben was the most notable no-show.

This seems like just another excuse made up by people running out of excuses as to why Ben holds the ball too long.

If you watch him in the pocket, he is reading the defense. He goes through his reads as long as he has time, and then some. I just don't understand this obsession with ripping up every little thing about the team because they went 9-7 this year. He's just a gunslinger, and he'd rather hold the ball as long as possible rather than throw it away. That's really all there is to it.

Also, is there now some concern that Ben is NOT a student of the game? Because, again, you simply cannot put up numbers like he does without doing due diligence. I'm sure he watches as much film as any other top-flight NFL QB.
What you are saying is mostly true, but back in 05 I don't think that was the case. It's been widely publicized that Ben's teammates did not think he was putting in the work. Remember the little sit down Batch had with Ben two years ago? I have a feeling last year he changes his ways and put in the time. Because IMO he was a different QB this past season.

Unfortunately it all might not matter if he goes to jail.

Records are not hard to break anymore. The whole game and the rules favor offense, offense & offense. So to break a passing record, or td pass is not impressive in my mind. Now to play in like 25o consecutive games, that is impressive.

I like this statement and totally agree! Unfortunately the "fantasy football" mentality has taken over the NFL.
