Brady makes a bad throw and Billechek is in his face letting him know about it. with Tomlin it's a pat on the ass
Roethlisberger has made his career so far about holding on to the ball, dancing for 6 seconds, finding a hole outside the pocket and picking up 15 yards on 3rd-and-8+. I'm not going to ask him to change, and I'm not going to pin the blame on Tomlin for Ben's style of play.
If anything, taking a sack there is on Ben and Todd for a) the playcall and b) the schoolyard style of football Ben plays.
