    Maybe Haley will actually plan a few plays each game where Ben is supposed to play action - scramble and throw...

    I think this is the most attention (voluntary, of course ) Ben has ever given the media during the offseason. In two months, he shown me he's more mature or at least hes acting like it. Ben just get rid of the ball quicker, that's all I ask.

    Contrary to what Ben said, he needs to do a lot.

    He needs to learn what a timing pass play is. Something he's never done as long as he's been in Pittsburgh. I can't wait until Haley gets a hold of this guy and really sits him down and explain to him what he expects.

    He will see once training camp starts, that what Haley demands is above and beyond what Arians had him doing.

    Most looking forward to the development of the HB screen passing game - something that was non existent in Uncle Bruces offense. Other than that, be a student of the game and lead the transition from one system to the other.

    That's an area that I think both Mendenhall and Redman can both excel at. The screen play and dump off short passes in the flat can be very effective with 'backs that can make defenders miss. Mendy can do that and Redman has pretty nimble feet for a power runner.

    Ahhhhhh the screen play. I have such found memories of it. Another reason why I"m looking forward to Mr. Haley's offense.

    The first time Haley calls a bubble screen I think the entire Steeler Nation will call for his head! Even worse, if Ben audibles into one!
