Ben's first snap

A little bit of bye week fun, an open creative forum.  Certainly no shortage of BTSCers who like to rake BA over the coals for his play calls, his game plan, his golf game.  Well, time to put your foresight up against your hindsight.  Call Ben's first play back from suspension.  Play armchair OC.  Be as elaborate or whimsical as you like.  

The assumption:  KO to touchback, Ben starts at the 20.

My contribution:  Pony backfield with Redman and Navin (Mendenhall, obviously).  Wallace and Brown split wide.  Play action, insofar as play action is possible on the first playcall.  Brown and Wallace straight up fly routes.  Safety bites on run, go Wallace.  Safety neutral, pump Brown go Wallace.  Safety drifts to Wallace, what the hell, go Brown.  Or what the hell, go Wallace anyway.  Regardless, 80 yard TD, believers rejoice, naysayers look quietly into your light beer and ask yourself, "why oh why do I always say 'nay'?"

Clearly I'm not running for office as an OC since I am taking about zero consideration of any specific Cleveland matchups.  That being said, I am really really excited to see a watershed game from Ben.  I think we are spectacularly lucky to have him, and I am optimistic that he has his head tuned to absolutely tear the schedule to pieces through the end of the year.  And I for one am going to be really excited to see how that first play back unfolds.
