geez, He's limping already, Batch in, save Ben for playoffs instead ? either way, it's a tough call.
Looks like everyone around Ben's going to get hurt instead...

I'd rather him not play at all in the playoffs if he doesn't show signs of improvement in this game to suggest he could do well in the playoffs.

The cliche line a few weeks ago was "I'd rather have a 75% Ben than a 100% Batch", the problem with that line of thinking is that the difference between, good and elite really is only a few % points, Ben at 75% clearly was nowhere near good enough against the 49ers. Or maybe he was worse than 75%, but my point is that I'd honestly likely rather have Batch or Dixon playing in the playoffs if Ben can't prove he's 90+% capable

23 offensive plays to 9 for Cleve. 10 mins to 2 mins possession time and NO POINTS. Just not good

I know all these percentages are subjective and how do you measure them, but according to the announcers before the game, they said Ben estimates he is 60% and was 40% at San Fran.

Surely a 100% Batch is as good if not better than a 60% Ben
