Default We are in trouble without Ben

At first I said 3-1 without Ben. After the first 3 preseason games i am saying maybe a 1-3 start is what we are looking at. I think we beat the bucs and that's it. What do you guys think ?

Don't tell Downbylaw that, according to him any bum can play QB for us as long as the defense gives him enough chances.

I think it's going to take some major time to gel with any QB thrown in there. In a f*cked up kind of way, it's looking more and more that Batch deserves a shot to be aleast considered playing most of the game in Game 4. Granted, most of the starters won't play, but with that performance last night with Dixon and Lefty, and with Lefty not REALLY having an overall good outing, Batch might be more expendable than we all think but make no mistake about it, both of these QB's need more time to get comfortable with how things are ran with each other's ability.

Even Hines said last night he doesn't even know and last night was really the first time he's worked with Dixon. Crazy to think with only 2 weeks til opening kickoff.

Default Re: We are in trouble without Ben

we were 9-6 WITH ben last year.

im more interested in seeing lebeau dial up some pressure defenses, so scrubs like the giants and broncos qb's cant pass the ball all over the place.

at this point, i'd say there is no need to be wishy-washy w/ your preseason predictions.

Default Re: We are in trouble without Ben

yes, we are

that 9-7 crap with Ben last year is just that - CRAP

we have POLA and ASMITH back - that will sure up the 4th Q collapses.

Ben had us in the lead in those games, Sweed dropped a game winner, and we spotted most teams 7 points each week

this team is not built very strong in the trenches - Ben covers for the OLINE, Troy for the DLINE.

those 2 are truly GREAT players

I believe Lefty will silence all the critics and carry the load for us. The two road games scare me less than the two home games.

Why is that we where 9-7 with lebeau dialing up pressure defenses last year. I dont care what you guys say Ben is the reason we have 2 rings in the past 5 years without Ben we don't make the playoffs this year
