    I think I remember him scoring these huge long TDs in his rookie year and then he has not done much since. What happened? Do they even give him vertical routes to run anymore or is he the designated reverse sweep running back and slot receiver?

    Also, I am really missing the late game magic that Ben quite often seemed to muster when we were down. Even last season there were a few games that we were 2+ scores down and the offense found a way to fight back, not always successful with a victory of course, but enough to at least make it clear we weren't going down without a fight. That all has seemed lost the past three games (and we should have lost the first game).

    They use him like Dri Archer despite him being 6'4 230 pounds. It's puzzling to say the least.

    We have a QB that can't hit long passes in the extreme rare instance when he even tries. We have an OC that doesn't know how to call a play but Claypool doesn't even have to be open with his size.

    His breakout rookie season, 2020, was the last year we had a decent Oline protecting a hall of fame quarterback.

    THIS! Or better yet like Ray-Ray McCloud. I don't get it. We are doing those types of plays FAR too often. I also feel like Najee is hardly being used properly. Offense is just such a mess... How did Canada even get the job?
