Number 3.....give me a break. what does Ben have to do to "ascend" to the elite QB's? isn't he there already?
Do OCs call QB sweeps on 3rd and 6 with the season on the line when they've got an elite QB?
Then again, does a team give 100 million plus to a non-elite QB?
Remember, this is also the same team that appears (from all published reports) ready to bench a transitioned OT to the tune of 7 million and change.
Some of the decisions this team has been making lately really make you wonder what the fuck is going on behind that curtain.
