I personally don't care if we run more pass more? as long as we score and put teams away instead of up by 3 and let the defense try and win it for us!
Shouldn't we all be looking at this as a somewhat good thing? We all know that under Big Ben the offense typically functions at a much higher level when they are in the "lightening" or no huddle package...
Wrote this for the homepage today...
Here's a teaser and the link...
If you were at all shocked to hear Ben Roethlisberger’s comments regarding the potential for “lots of no-huddle” offense in 2012 my question would be… Why? In an interview with the NFL Network’s Rich Eisen which will air Thursday, Roethlisberger was quoted as saying, “In these meetings I've had with Coach Haley, he's all about the no-huddle and using our wide-receiver weapons and throwing the ball and stuff like that.”
This doesn’t surprise me at all when you consider the background of new Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley who has taken the players given him in the past and adapted his offense to them. In Arizona, he took Kurt Warner who was thought to be on his last legs, and opened up the Cardinals’ offense to the point of reaching Super Bowl XLIII. As head coach in Kansas City, Haley took a team built to run the ball and did just that as they became the number one rushing team in football.
Coming to you live from the Fortress of Steelertude!
This shouldn't come as any surprise. In the past under Ariens the no huddle was often employed because they couldn't move the ball at all w/ conventional plays lol. I view it as a bit of a gimmick but if it works it works.
