I have this idea that Big Ben ain't all that any more.
He had a meteoric rise and looks like he may fall into the anals (or is it annals) of NFL history just as fast.
Don't know if after winning a SB ring he no longer gives a darn, or if that motorcycle accident did more damage than we're being told (cooridnation, motor skills) or that can be measured.
In any event he clearly isn't what he was and personally, I am not seeing him get back to where he was at the end of last season.

I think he may have come back too fast. Dunno, but he had a heckuva an offseason.

I never thought he was all that great to begin with. His defense did most of the work. All he had to do was hand off to Willie and The Bus and stay out of the way.

I'm with packchick--I never bought into Big Ben. He was a product of a system, plain and simple. There were a few games last season where he only threw it 10-12 times...no wonder his completion percentage was so high.
