Ben was commenting last night after the game that during some situations against Oakland that he was calling plays that weren't even in the playbook. Assuming they were Arian's holdovers, how will that go over in the meetings this week? He, Ben, says they worked because guys knew what was going on but I wonder if TH is happy with Ben improvising that much?
After the 34-31 loss to the Oakland Raiders, Ben Roethlisberger commented on how he felt the offense played, saying "I felt like offensively we kind of did the things we wanted to do; no huddle the whole second half. It felt like we moved the ball down the field; there were plays out there that I called that weren’t in our playbook. I know it sounds crazy; things that we’ve had from years past that guys were on the same page and it worked. I take my hat off to the line, receivers, tight ends, because they made plays."
