    He led the league with 16 last season, I expect him to throw less ints this season maybe 10 or 11. With no AB to force the ball to, his ints should go down.

    His career average is 12.6 so I am going with 12. He may not force throws to AB anymore but he still has the gunslinger mentality and has newer receivers which may lead to more INTs from miscommunication.

    11 for me. No Mr. "3rd and 5th" means less opportunities to have the ball takwn away. I am expecting a multi turnover game though.

    He mentioned in an interview a few years back that it is in his blood to throw a few down the field every game. I remember in his early years he had a season with 23.

    I am going with 17

    Ben threw a lot of Ints last year for a simple reason: he threw a lot of passes, the 4th most in a season all time. His %int last year were lower than his career average.

    But Ben forced the ball before AB, with AB, and likely will also after AB. Ben free style improvisation has been very good for this team, but it's not without downside.

    I'll take 14 Ints this year, but largely because he'll throw slightly less. Hell, he can hardly throw more, can he?

    I will go with 11. I think we will run more often and more consistently than we did last year. No AB, but tons of WR depth means Ben can spread the ball around without having water coolers thrown around on the sideline.

    Was it considered a force to AB when he made a fantastic catch and took it for a TD, or only the passes that were picked were forced?

    I am going 13. He averages 13.5/16 games. He will have one game where he throws 3+ Ints. Then he will come back with a perfect QB rating the next game.

    I thought Ben blamed that one on the OC for not calling 4 straight passes to JuJu, and Pouncey for blocking the DT into the path of the ball.

    15 for me. this is 6 too many. We have the OL&RB's
    to flip the run/pass ratio if #7 would let it happen.

    It doesn't matter who Ben blamed, he still forced the ball to AB when he was covered.
