It's just a matter of time.
That's something that grows over time. We're developing that here, certainly, but it takes time.
I don't think it was as much Ben, ... Certainly, he finished strong, he got us down there and we scored on that last drive. That's one encouraging thing that came out of it -- when we had to have it, he stepped up and did it. He handled it very well.
It was weird because usually with teams that have had a pass rush we've always been pretty solid in our protection, ... Our line does a good job. It's unfortunate, but we didn't play our best game. We have some things we can work on. We'll work on those things and we'll be better next time we play.
You can't take away his ability to create when he gets out of the pocket.
You can't point the finger at that. There were a lot of factors involved with that game. We certainly weren't giving him a lot of time to throw the ball at times.
The timing was just a little bit off. He still had a little residual soreness. But he took all the snaps today.
From what I've talked with him when we've been on the practice field, yes. He's seen some things. He's talked about some things. From that standpoint, he's been good.
A little bit of everything.
What Ben saw was good, ... He trusted it, which is what you want him to do. And then I told him, 'You just gotta trust your guy to make a play.' .
He came here with a good idea of how to block. It's actually been surprising how well he's done with that aspect of the game.
Obviously, he keeps showing up, keeps making plays.
Logging 15 or 16 games in a row will get them physically and mentally worn out. At the end of the year, you have to be more careful because they reach an information overload.
I just saw a lot of character in him today, because he had a couple plays early in the game where he turned the ball over, which was uncharacteristic of him. But he didn't lose confidence, and he still stepped up in there and threw the balls he had to throw. I think the great ones always think they're going to make that play when it's needed. I certainly think he does.
Everyone says he's fast. I wish he'd score instead of getting run out of bounds. I'm waiting to see that 'fast' from Willie. But he does give you that element.
You never know when he's going to snap the ball. If you're trying to disguise and he quick-snaps you, you're caught out of place.
They have been sitting through the meetings all year long so I don't think so. They've been involved in it all year long so it shouldn't be a problem.
I could lay it out for you, play by play, ... but a lot of it was just getting lucky and catching them in the right thing. They run a zone blitz, you can catch them inside, they blitz, with man coverage behind it, you can catch them with the toss.
Coach and I talked about that at the end of the preseason and he was concerned about where we were from passing game standpoint.
