Holding the ball too long

Ok, the concensus is that Ben holds the ball too long.  My humble opinion  is that he does some of the time, but mostly,it is the line's fault.  Because I am a bit of a steeler dork, and have free time, I decided to re-watch games and keep track. This is only one game, but here is what happened Sunday.

Ben was sacked 4 times.  All four were on the line.  3 he had less than 3 seconds, and 1 he had less than 4 seconds.  I don't know if guys were open, but that is not a long time to hold the ball.

Also, he escaped from pressure 8 times to make a play or throw it away. I think he had 3 throw aways, which I will agree, is a lot for him.

Just one game, but I will stay on it.  Even if he does hold it too long some of the time, I think his escapes make up for it.
