I really don't get why people think that Ben can't read defenses. If he couldn't, there's no way he would have made it this far in the NFL.
No one said he couldn't read a defense. What was said is that he cannot do it as well as the truly elite quarterbacks in the league. How many of his passes are from a 3-step drop (not counting bubble screens)? I'm sure there is a stat out there for average time taken from snap until throw and there is no way Ben is even in the top 10 in that category. Might even be bottom 10.
