Schemes don't protect QBs, offensive lines do.
Ben got hurt, but fact remains, he took half the sacks this year that he has over the last few seasons. Getting the ball out quicker did have a lot to do with limiting the time Ben could get hit.
I don't buy into it being a quick strike league. Time of possession is still king. Being able to have a balanced attack is still king. Having deep threats is nice because it's just easier for wideouts to get off coverage since the rules are strict on the 5 yards.
