Default Ben's knee

Did anyone else notice after Ben slipped on that horrid turf and came up gimpy his knee on his plant foot was jacked up? My wife noticed this, and so did I and my nephew as we watched the replay of Ben grimacing on the following play when he ran for a first down. I think he was definitely affected by that for the rest of the game. Because it was on his plant foot. I noticed no one else on here has picked up on this, instead focusing on the turnovers and lack of Troy and Timmons coming through on D, amongst other issues.

Ya never know, but it is something to think about. I think his knee may have had a dramatic affect on alot of the bad throws the rest of the game. Any thoughts?

Ben is fine, he just did that grimace and limp to throw off the Packers into thinking he was injured. worked very well the next play.

Bingo!

He did the exact same thing with the "thigh bruise" in the Jet game.

But I like the fact that he can have something happen to him and then use it to his advantage. In fact, when I saw him grab his knee, I actually thought to myself, "Watch him run for a first down on the next play"

That was one of the few things in that game that made me smile.

Funny. I said the exact same thing to my two buddies that you just said.
And they just laughed when I called it. One of the best moment on ther game.
