Ben's decline as a passer may also be related to not having Heath around him. Heath was Ben's safety blanket and Ben knew to look for Heath when no one else was open. After Hines, Heath took over converting third downs. He knew how to find the gaps in zone coverage. Ben doesnt have anyone like that now. Now one is taking over becoming a safety valve for Ben. Heath seemed to know what Ben was facing in the pocket through his peripheral vision. He wasn't looking to make 'splash plays'....just convert third down and/or have a positive play. Jesse James is not the answer. Vance could be if he improves his catching ability. Perhap's Juju could turn into Hines....but that won't be for couple years.

I've been getting the feeling that JuJu is going to turn into the X factor for Ben going forward

Kid is looking like Hines Ward Part 2.
Inch or 2 taller. 10-12 pounds heavier.
Anquan Boldinesq
Makes catches in traffic, guys pressed to his back.
Impressive so far.

Refs have his number on those screen plays, as he has drawn 4-5 holding flags already.
He needs eliminate those.
But i'm sure refs have their eyes on him and will be quick to throw the yellow.

15 - 192 - 12.8 2 TD's
40 -512 with 5/6 TDs pace.
I can see the final numbers being more in the 50 - 650 range as the passing game improves as the season goes on.

Still need to get Bryant and the TE's going
