Just a question Ive been mulling over. During the last game when Ben had a chance to run for a 1st down, he ended up throwing instead and got a penalty for being over the line. I'm not sure if he could have made it as I deleted the game immediately, so I cant go back and re-watch it. However, I have noticed a couple of times this season that he's had the room but doesn't try for the 1st down.
Now, I am in no way calling him out, I think hes one of the toughest QBs to ever play the game, however, maybe that shot against KC last year made an impact on him. I wouldn't blame him in the least, I mean he could have died right?
Anyway, all that got me thinking that maybe, he will take the sacks and shots behind the line, but not risk his body anymore than he has to. Which leads me to wonder if he won't be satisfied to just walk away when his contract is up? After all, he has two rings and holds all the team passing records, plus I'm sure he wants to have a quality life with the wife and kids.
I could be completely off base here, but I thought Id ask the question.
