    No, Benny Lava didn’t hack my account but after that interception by Ben which never ever ever should have been thrown by a veteran like Ben, he clearly has nothing left. It’s over for him.

    He should have retired, embarrassing end to his legacy.

    It was crystal clear before now. This is on Art. They did a half tear down this offseason but chickened out at doing the full one. Should have completed the gut by getting rid Ben, Ebron, Tuitt, and Haden. Take the ugly year, especially with this schedule, draft high, spend money, and roll into 2022. Stupid organization is stupid.

    I think most of the board was in agreement ben shouldn’t have been brought back.

    Don’t compound a mistake, find out what you have in Haskins and then draft a QB when he more than likely fails.

    Or....

    Trade a 3rd and #2 next year for Sam Darnold.

    A franchise QB for cheap

    Yeah I doubt Carolina is letting go of Darnold any time soon.

    I totally agree, Bench Ben and put in Mason or Haskins and let’s move on. He has nothing left and I don’t want to see him getting hurt that is going to effect his retirement.

    At what point is his future health the ultimate goal here?

    Yea I agree they definitely gotta re-evaluate things after this loss next week. You can’t lose to the Bengals and just think things are fine.

    Looks like Texans are desperate for a QB since Watson is refusing to play. Trade Ben, a 3rd and a future 2nd for Watson.

    Frankly, I just don't see them getting much better as the season goes, even with injured players coming back. Thinking we just might get a high draft pick with or without Ben in the lineup. Sadly, Ben has to think about his personal health at this stage. At this rate, he's going to get hurt really bad. It's ultimately heartbreaking to hear the sea of booos. And unfortunately, this will be the norm this season.

    Don't bench him. Put him on the injury report and then IR and let Mason or Dwayne take their shot.

    Yep, most of us knew his azz was done but they brought him back. This chit show has got to end. All good things come to an end eventually.

    Bench his azz!

    I also hear, couldn't see the game, that Haskins was in street clothes today.

    what’s the difference? It’s going to be an ugly year regardless. The result will be the same.

    Sticking with Ben in his current state over Mason or Dwayne is like not getting the iPhone13 because you refuse to give up your iPhone4.

    He's not refusing, the organization won't play him with the allegations. I admire them for that, and personally wouldn't want anything to do with Watson until the off the field drama is settled.

    he’s the 3rd string. The 3rd string is always in street clothes.

    Ben's azz needs to be in street clothes for the next game.

    Why? More losses the better. As I said in the game day thread everyone wants a new franchise QB but no one wants the losing season it takes to get one.

    I disagree, let the two behind him see what they can do. If we're gonna lose as you indicated, then it should not matter if Ben is benched or not, right?

    Mason was right there with his helmet on too.

    I think someone changed there mind about making the switch.
