    ben should have been picked twice. A wr saved one. Pierre gave up a td, but also had a nice break up to save a td and an int to seal the game.

    Called out when it's bad not mentioned when it's good.

    Nice stat grab.

    Ben was average to bad, good thing they played a beat up team with a weak QB. Ben's a turnover waiting to happen.

    You're angry because you see it, too. Ben's throwing ducks and holding the offense back.

    Ben made some mistakes today and I was quick to point them out based on the way I feel he has played this year. But dang he did have a pretty good game today and if we’re going to criticize we also have to give props when he does good.
    The OP is just a miserable person that is more concerned with being right about their doomsday predictions than being a fan and rooting for the team. Type of person that can’t handle adversity.

    Ben definitely played average today and more of a game manager role. Hopefully this is his role the rest of the with the offense leaning on Harris and the run game. Tonight was the first time that I actually noticed Canada's scheme trickling into the offensive playbook, especially in the first half. The PA screen to the TE that went opposite side of the fake jet sweep is a stable of his scheme. Actually seen more of FB Watt today, especially in the first half.

    This was probably Ben's best game this season, his worst play was holding the ball too long on the sack/fumble, the two TDs were good passes from him not ducks. His pass attempts was under 30, two bad drops by White, and Snell.

    James Pierre he needs to stop trying to play these receivers with bump and run coverage, once they get by him it's over, he doesn't have the speed to recover. At least he redeemed himself after getting burned for another long TD, with a int at the end.

    Ben and Bridgewater weren't that different today. Both have limited arm strength.

    The difference was our D was better than theirs.

    Still not worth a draft pick. One game he hits a 60 yarder, another a 20 yarder. Big deal. IMO>

    The best 3 drops today were by Denver as Ben was very accurate to the wrong team. That's a fact. Glad they didn't catch them but extremely poor passes that should/could have been turnovers and changed this game around. I guess that is why they play defense.

    Losing track of a receiver to allow the Broncos' second touchdown was a huge mistake. I'm fairly certain it was Edmunds, who dropped off into the vicinity of where Pierre was covering Sutton rather than play the wide-open receiver at the goal line.

    Edmunds was also very lucky he wasn't called for pass interference on the third-down play before Pierre's game-clinching interception. He made contact and never turned around for the ball.

    The truly ugly today the team suffering more injuries. It is no coincidence that the defense faltered once Bush was out of there. There are so many things they can do with him in there that they can't with Spillane, who played poorly. I'll point to two plays by Spillane. One was a pass to Sutton. He read it perfectly and should have been able to make a play on the ball, but he was just too slow. He also squared up with Javonte Williams on a running play only to get shoved backward for another six or seven yards. If he can't even make tackles when he is in a position like that, he has no value at all.

    Good: no Benny lava posts


    Bad: one player from offense and defense go out and the team falls apart

    ugly: I fear this team is headed for .500 now and Tomlins legacy will carry on lol

    He was drafted in the seventh round, if they drafted any other position in the seventh round that player wouldn't be contributing to the team.

    I think the reason we didn't get a lot of pressure on Bridgewater was due to them keeping their TE in to block. Tomlin alluded to that in his post game presser. By doing that, it took Fant out of the passing game. So Denver traded off having a top receiving threat in order to help neutralize our pass rush. Life is a series of tradeoffs.
