Damn shame there isn't a mediocre QB getting overblown into a late 1st round projection they could trade up to 24 for... Davis Mills?
Nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile...

His leg was shot by the end of the season. He gutted it out. Most people don't realize what he went through last year, just to play. The mental and physical fortitude he displayed is really rare. I love Ben and he's tough, but I wish he had that much gumption. We'd have a few more Lombardis, imo.

I didn't realize his leg was shot. Tough dude though, for sure. Hopefully it won't affect him badly for the rest of his youngish life.

He already struggles to look normal walking, the fact he played football last year is amazing. That "Project 11" documentary was wild.
