Those teams have significantly better quarterbacks than ours who can (successfully) call plays at the line and read a defensive coverage scheme in less than 1 second. Ben has a lot of good qualities, but reading a defensive shell isn't one of them. It's why he holds onto the ball for so long to begin with. Between his wide receivers and Miller he has one of the best receiving corps in the league so why is he holding onto the ball forever?
