Default Ben is not consistant enough

I know we have O lines issues but even when Ben has time to throw it seems that his passes are off an he is not consistant with his accuracy.

I also noticed that our receivers are not use to being HOT on blitzes and it seems that they know Ben will not hit them quick so they don't look for the HOTs or quick hits. I saw Ben try to hit the HOTs today but each time they were not looking.

We need a new offensive coordinator to work witht this offense and build a rhythm type passing attack. We don't have it and we look really out of sync when we try to do it. Ben's passes are either way out in front or way behind when we try to do a 3 step drop type pass.

actually our receivers are young and dont know how to read defenses, let alone run hot routes.

teh only pass catchers that do are miller and ward.

bens accuracy is off the chart considering the pressure he is constantly under.

lol ok.. so how is that Ben's fault? if he's throwing the hot reads, and the receivers aren't breaking back for the ball, what's the issue with Ben? he is looking to throw the hot reads, the receivers just never know when to run the correct routes.

Ben's truly "innacurate" passes are an obscenely small sample size considering he only gets more than 1.5 seconds to throw the ball about once or twice a game.

The oline has always been bad but they've truly taken it to a new level of suckage. This is truly the worst line I have ever seen at any level of the game.

Yup. Spot on. HIs accuracy is not cutting it especially considering his experience in the league. He should be hitting guys in stride out front. Quite often his balls are behind. I honestly think that all the beating he has taken has finally caught up to him. This team does need a new O coordinator. They someone with a decent imagination and one who can reign in the bad habits that Ben has.

When you believe in passing....defense tees you up....

Our defense is flat and too slow...so how are cut back runners killing us...we rarely over commit?

Wallace can read blitzes and run hot routes.

he's definitely getting better...

...and at this stage of his career, he is almost approaching veteran status. i would expect no less (especially not with hines ward as his mentor).

Ben's too busy getting killed to throw accurate passes.
