They were out of timeouts despite what EPSN says.. But Ben doesn't use timeouts, he spikes the ball as much as he can to save the last timeout, he's always done that, I don't know why you'd question him now.

Ben sometimes spikes the ball to excess but props to his fake spike in the first half when he should have hit Wallace for a score

I'm critical of the spikes sometimes. If you got time to line up and spike the ball you got time to snap the damn thing and run a 10 yard pass route to the outside. Downs are important and I hate wasting first down. The last spike was neccessary, but the earlier one I didn't like.

The spikes did not matter, actually they were quite beneficial. It was all time.

Why in the hell, when it is the 2 minute drill, were the steelers subing in diferent personnel. and repeatedly shifting 2 wr's from one side to the other?

atleast 3-4 snaps were completely wasted. i guess with ben missing the first 4 games they still dont think hes ready to take over the no-huddle hurry up office. maybe he's still finding his groove with his wr's.

or maybe arians will no longer hand over the reigns like he used to because he has been ordered to runn the ball more..... effectively.

either way it was a complete meltdown from the sideline. that situation is very simple and has been proven time and time again.

you go 11 personnel (1rb/1te/3wr) and let ben work his magic.
If thats really the case,that after 10 games and taking alot of the snaps in preseason with the first team ,oh and a bye week.... really makes me wonder what kind of brain damage this guy really does have. I think our offensive problems are a lack of BA's confidence in Ben this year and Ben's confidence in his own passing ability.
