More and more information has been coming out the last couple of days about just how this whole Ben Roethlisberger and Todd Haley situation is being handled. Things we do know based on reports from the local media.
-Ben spent 4 days in the training facility while Todd Haley was there and the two did not talk.
-Ben tracked down reporter, I believe it was Ed Bouchette, an hour before Haleyís presser and gave him a 15 minute interview.
-Benís comments in recent interviews talking about how great he is and how great the offense was under Arians. ďIíve thrown for 4,000 yds last year. ďOur receivers each had 1,000 yds.Ē
-Ben saying he would hate to see them throw out everything theyíve done so far because they were so close to being great.
Ben has been very calculating so far, in my opinion, on what heís trying to accomplish here with his remarks. What that is though itís hard to say about now.
To date, we donít know if Haley and Ben have talked yet. Perhaps they have, perhaps not. How can you be in the same building for days on end, within literally yards of each other at any given time, and not speak?
Haley has a responsibility here too, to seek out Ben and want to talk with him. Tomlin does too, why doesnít he just give Ben a call and say ďhey Ben, swing by my office after lunch for a few minutesĒ and then Ben comes in and Haley is there. ďOk you too, youíll be working together, Iíd like you to meetĒ
Honestly this whole thing is just a circus. Tomlin and or Art II better get a handle on this.
