Big Ben had his share of bad games - multiple interceptions, making "rookie mistake throws" as a 10 year vet, overthrowing receivers, misreading routes, etc. He often lost to inferior teams. Of course, these were countered with his good games where he was money and clutch, and we have yet to see that from KP, except in a few short spurts in the fourth quarter. And there was something qualitatively different - Ben had moxy and wouldn't shy away from the big throws, even when he was playing badly. There was always that hope he would turn it around. He also had better receivers and offensive lines most of the time, which probably helped. Not sure what happened to KP's development. He probably had a low ceiling, but that doesn't explain why he is playing below his floor. I blame coaching and poor schemes, but it is likely more than that. I know you can only fill so many holes through the draft and free agency as far as players go, but there is great flexibility in replacing holes in coaching. Cleaning house, probably on both side of the ball (and special teams) is probably in order.
