More of the same. Ben is the ultimate weapon! Where is Mike Martz? Ben's offense scored more than 23 ppg one time in his career! He is the best ever! Throw a hundred times a game! Shotgun, hurry-up offenses only!
Every coach adapts his offense or defense to best suit the abilities of the players he has. The Steelers front office has been doing this well for decades. This is why when I see them making an effort to rein Ben in and make the offense more balanced I know they are on the right track.
The Steelers coaches and front office know who Ben is even if you don't.
