Exibit A Throwing a pick to Derrick Brooks, who was lurking in zone coverage, when your playing a team that is none for excellent zone coverage, against a player that has made a living of exploiting QBs threw said coverage
Exibit B Most QBs don't even throw to Champ Bailey's side, Ben decides to throw to his side while rolling out into double coverage.
I think this guy always got by on his physical skills alone and that caught up with him last year in a big way.
Exactly. Thats what their talking about. He's a constant weight room fanatic. But more people want him to be in the film room a la Tom Brady/Peyton Manning/Phillip Rivers.
One thing that irritates me. Ever time a steeler QB has a bad season, he gets the idiot tag put on him.
It happened with Bradshaw (Before Joe Green shut everyone up) and then what.. 4 superbowls.
Kordell was supposedly stupid and a *****.
Tommy Maddox was an idiot
Neil O'Donnell was an idiot.
How come Eli manning isn't an idiot? Phillip Rivers? Brad Johnson? Daunte Culpepper? Jake Delhomme... Every QB has bad seasons but ours always gets the idiot tag put on them.
Ben isn't an idiot. He always knows the right things to say on camera and he has a solid personality and is a young leader.
