Big Ben Holding the Ball too much? Maybe not

Hi all, this is my first FanPost and my native language is spanish so please bare with me, with the bad writting :).

All season I've heard that Big Ben holds too much to the ball searching the big play, for most part i think it was true, but then i start to analize other QB's and OLs, and that's not true. Yesterday McNabb had up to 5 to 7 secs. playing against the Giants, and he wasn't scramble trhu the field. The rookies QB, the same. In My opinion your OL has to be abble to give you the time you need to make the play. Think this: a WR take aprox 5-6 secs to go 50+ yrds. your QB needs at least 4-5 secs. so he can read if the WR is free and then make the trhow.

So the idea of Ben holding the ball too long is ridiculous, is like say that Manning, Brady, Warner, Brees, the other manning, McNabb. always hold the ball too long. They are specialist in long passes.

Yopu have to build a OL that has the capability to give your QB the time he needs, not the back way, we need that the QB trhow in the time the OL can give him, that like 2-3 secs. when a WR, TE or RB are 3-5 yrds. tops and cover.

And just to finish, I now we can't do anything but, can we make a petion letter to fired BA. Maybe the Boss JR. is tired of him, and we get lucky.

Thanks
