Roethlisberger: No-huddle offense likely to make comeback vs. Seattle
Thursday, September 15, 2011
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Ben Roethlisberger experienced a rough day Sunday in Baltimore, one of the worst in his eight seasons with the Steelers. Even a broken nose his previous visit there felt better.

He tossed three interceptions and lost two fumbles, not counting another fumble on a botched handoff exchange with halfback Rashard Mendenhall. The Ravens sacked him four times for good measure as the Steelers absorbed a 35-7 thumping.

Roethlisberger had only five interceptions in the regular season last year. He has thrown seven in his past three games, counting the Super Bowl and AFC championship.

"I was talking to coach [Dick] LeBeau, and we used our mulligan on the first tee," Roethlisberger said. "We take our penalty stroke and we have 17 more holes to birdie.

"We just didn't come together, and I didn't play well. I think we're all entitled to a bad day now and then, and we move on."

One thing Roethlisberger promised to change against the Seattle Seahawks is the use of the no-huddle offense. The Steelers did not show it in Baltimore; they will Sunday in Heinz Field, he vowed.

"Yeah, I'll make sure of that. We need to. We didn't do it at all the last game. We kind of throw a lot of things out the window when you're getting killed like that. I know people are probably making a big deal that we didn't run the ball enough. I think we'll see [the no-huddle] this week."

I guess as long as it's not Arians making this promise it might be a bit more believable this time...........but I'm not holding my breath. :noidea:

Even if it is true that they plan to run the no-huddle offense this week against Seattle
(which I do not believe it), then why would you advertise this and tip off
your opponent? :banging:

Arians is already backing away (http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/11259/1175070-66-0.stm) from Ben's comments. This should be interesting. Let's see who calls the shots.

I facepalmed myself just now. I guess I should read all of the article before posting it. :chuckle:

Arians does make a valid point, but I think this is the best chance as ever to do the no-huddle in a real game just for experience for the young guys.

Well of course he would, why not? A no-huddle offense never won us anything right? Unless you count that Super Bowl, that is........nothing big.

anytime a team goes into no-huddle offense mode they pretty much automatically run the ball up the field easily...i dont see why more teams dont take advantage of this o.0

I never saw that posted before!

I guess the question I pose is "how has is the current offensive game planning working?"

Article from 2009 (and we expect change? Don't hold your breath)

There is no creativity at all with the Steelers offensive attack. There are no trick plays, no wildcat, no nothing. I am not saying the Steelers should try to trick teams every game, but why not throw an occasional trick play in, just to keep the other teams defense honest? Because Bruce Arians does not want to.

The Steelers offense is it's best when they go no-huddle. When they do, no one in the league has been able to stop it. Why don't we do it more often? Because Bruce Arians does not want to. Why do you think that is? Because Bruce Arians does not get to call the plays.I firmly believe that anyone could come in and do as good of a job calling plays as Bruce Arians is. ANYONE! There are plenty of people that are available, such as Jim Haslett, who used to be an offensive coordinator for the Steelers, or even Mike Martz may be available. The fact is, Arians is in over his head and has a job that he can not handle.

you don't need to run the no huddle unless you're coming from behind

After his offense committed seven turnovers -- six in the second half---- in Baltimore, offensive coordinator Bruce Arians was looking to set a better tempo against the Seahawks. It didn't start that way after a goal-line stop on the first series, but the pace also included a switch to the no-huddle offense when it was first-and-25 at the Seattle 42. Roethlisberger completed the next four passes for 40 yards and a touchdown. "That was nice," Arians said
