    No Huddle on its Way

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Expect lots of no-huddle

    The Pittsburgh Steelers said they wanted to run the ball more often when they parted with former offensive coordinator Bruce Arians this offseason, but quarterback Ben Roethlisberger hasn't noticed too much of a change with new OC Todd Haley, the Pro Bowler told NFL Network's Rich Eisen.

    "I get a little confused at times because so much has been made about us, quote-unquote, throwing the ball too much, or going back to Steeler football and running the ball more," Big Ben said on the Rich Eisen podcast, which airs on the NFL Network Thursday, 1:30 p.m. ET.

    "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," Roethlisberger said.

    The quarterback made headlines this offseason after he said he was upset that the team didn't renew Arians' contract. Arians is now the offensive coordinator of the Indianapolis Colts.

    "People made such a big deal about us being so upset and hissy fits," Roethlisberger said. "Nothing like that happened. You hate to see anybody that's your family leave. So that was the tough part."

    Roethlisberger, who earned a degree from Miami University over the weekend, also spoke to Eisen about some of his recent coursework, including writing an essay for class on Tibet.

    Ben: STFU to the media. Let's keep the opposition guessing about the new playbook.

    The only mystery about the new playbook is with the Steeler fans that think Haley is going to bring back 3 yards and a cloud of dust. Those folks are in for a rude awakening.

    The real keys are: balance, execution, and not being predictable.

    Haley will do fine, but my fear is as he succeeds he will be mentioned for a HC role within 2 years or so. The better he does, the sooner the offer. Double edged sword, I suppose.

    Ben will be on Dan Patrick tomorrow. Perhaps he will add to these comments. Either way I'll believe it when I see it.

    YOu might want to go look at Haley's run to pass numbers. In the 3 years he functioned as an OC(2 Arizona,1 KC) he actually passed far more often than Arians. Weiss was the OC the 2nd year and he was fired during the 3rd.

    I was impressed with the quote Haley gave. I will paraphrase a bit, but it went something like this:

    "We are going to take what the defense gives us"

    That speaks volumes to me. You exploit the opponents weakness.
