Just because you saw a couple games of it used when Ben was out and a few series upon his return doesn't make it an absolute label.
My bad - Marty ball is run, run, pass. The Steelers offense did that only sometimes. Other times it was run, bubble screen, pass. Or run, end-around, pass. Or run, check-down for 1 yd gain, pass.
And they did that when Ben was in. Remember the Denver game? Run, run, pass. How about after Allen's first interception in the Bengals game? Run, run, sack. Because only in Pittsburgh, scoring quickly and not fretting over time of possession is criminal.
