View Full Version : Ben Roethlisberger says 'no trouble' with Todd Haley

05-22-2012, 01:14 PM
"People blew it way out of proportion," Roethlisberger told KDKA-TV (http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2012/05/21/roethlisberger-on-haley-theres-no-trouble-between-us/) on Monday. "It's something new, we're getting to know each other ... There's no trouble between us at all."

Under Arians, the Steelers increasingly defied their grind-it-out image in favor of a passing game that burned defenses with sets that heavily featured their talented young wideouts. Haley's attack doesn't promise a four-quarter air show, but Roethlisberger is ready to buy in to the plan.

"When you get a comfort level of like eight years of the same thing and then you change it, it's just something different, so I'm not saying I don't like the playbook or anything like that," Roethlisberger said. "Some of the stuff is really -- some of the concepts are awesome, it's just getting an understanding of something new."

Offseason dramas in Pittsburgh rarely bubble over into the regular season. It's May and there's plenty of time for Big Ben and friends to install the new look. We don't expect them to skip a beat.

I'm sure something else will make the media highlight reel this offseason as the OTA's get underway and then training camp. He'll say something, everybody will go crazy with it and then we'll be back to the "ben doesn't like todd" thing again..lol

Change is a big part of the current NFL. Ben is a big boy and a very good NFL QB. All the hubbub about the new playbook is just that. We won't really see the full effect till the start of the season as we do with every season. I'm really looking fwd to the change. Change might have been a year late but better late then never.

of course people (pittsburgh media) blew it way out of proportion. i'm sure it will take some time to get the terminology down, and everything else that goes with it...i, for one, can't wait to see what this offense can do now.

haley and decastro are such game changers for this team, we all knew that this was blown out of proportion since ben and arians are friends but ben has ever reason to be excited

We will be fine.

The media will continue to blow this stuff out of proportion to try and get the fans all torqued up. Then they can look like the good guys when they report what really happened and how things didn't really go down like the fans perceive.

3rd week in sept the NFL media will be trying to figure out why the steelers are leading the league in points scored...

Without having Brady or Brees/Rivers.

Isn't this what we all said when the media was making a big deal out of this.

"We all" is a relative term

It's not like this is the end of the Haley vs Ben talk. Just wait until something goes south with a gameplan, or the perhaps the offense struggles early; Ben is sure to say something that will get everyone in an uproar.

I swear if Haley makes us a run first team again I'm going to flip my lid........

Change is never easy. Of course Ben was comfortable with Arians (BA). Arians was like the indulgent parent who fails to introduce his child to discipline. The Steeler offense under Ben/Arians was inconsistent, and never rose to the ranks of the top-scoring NFL offenses. BA had 5 years to try and establish a smooth-functioning offense that scored consistently; he failed.
Haley wants to install a system that consistently produces points, one that equals the defensive squad in excellence.
There will be some bumps along the road. But in the long run, if the offense can produce points more consistently, the change will be worth it. If Ben can't change, that will be a problem. Fans are tired of the spurt & sputter offense of recent years.
