Quotes of the year

• “Haley‘s offense is not a big-play offense; it‘s kind of a dink-and-dunk offense.” — Roethlisberger, two days before the game at Cincinnati.

Roethlisberger said that only to me, yet I read several media interpretations of what he meant and how he said it. Amazing.

Just know this: If you believe that Ben is a fan of “Haley‘s offense,” you‘re delusional. Ben doesn‘t like Haley‘s offense. Period. That doesn‘t mean it can‘t work. Doesn‘t mean Ben and Haley hate each other. Simply means Ben doesn‘t like Haley‘s offense. Any other account of the situation is wrong.

FWIW Starkey's column is a nice overview of the many ways in which the 2012 Steelers were such a disappointment
Haley's offense is dink and dunk huh? I guess his offense in AZ where he had 3 1,000 yard receivers was just a dream I had. Maybe he has Ben dink and dunk because for every long pass Ben throws deep, 6 of them are over or under throws. And this year, drops by mr contract year boy.
