For those that watched the Falcon's game last night, you saw early on the Steelers making a conscience effort to roll Ben out of the pocket and create extra time to set up the throws. Now, this is not something new, we see it regularly by the offense. It's a great weapon to have and Ben runs it perfectly. He does very well especially running to his left but either way I want to see more of it.
Not only is a good play in general to use, but it helps keep Ben from getting killed. With Hills starting at RG most likely and either Gilbert or Scott at LT, the Steelers will need to rely on plays like this to help keep Ben from getting crushed. When you roll out the QB it allows him to by more time by running away from the pressure coming from his back and the pressure in front of him can be blocked down and away from him. Plus when you pop a RB or TE out to his roll out side that gives you an extra blocker who can always break off and get in the flat for a completion.
Arians needs to call more of this type of play this year, it's effective in moving the chains and keeping our Quarterback upright.
