i think its time ben shuts up about the old coaching staff and works on getting his head straight for the upcoming season.....the time that the coaching staff did let him rocket the ball everywhere (bengals) he threw 4 picks......nohuddle seems like a good idea, lets just not abandon the run....GO WILLIE GO!!!!

Problem is the "no huddle" goes against the Steelers basic philosophy of controlling time of possession. I feel it's one of the most underestimated stats in football. Only thing worse than a three and out is a three and out that takes 30 seconds.

Come the 4th quarter, 5 minutes TOP one way or the other is the difference between the defense still having gas in the tank or not.

I'm not saying I'm against it, but I would think it's something you mix in occasionally as opposed to running all the time.

Ben has, in limited does, run the two minute drill successfully. It's a copy-cat league and with the Pats and Colts running it so successfully the last few years its no wonder that its spreading like wild-fire. I think its a good idea, especially because you're combining it with a steellar (ha hah coudn't resist its a bad one) defense not one that shows up only occasionally like the Colts. The Pats have been able to run a possession oriented offense that utlilizes the no huddle really well and if Ben is up to the task I see no reason why it can't succeed in Pittsburgh.

"IF" is the key word. Personally, I don't see Cowher taking shots at Ben in the studio. He has a little more class and maturity than that. Plus, it seems like Cowher has moved on, something our "franchise" QB should start thinking about doing.

Or...

He can continue taking shots at Whisenhunt and Cowher (something he has been doing since Tomlin has been hired) every chance he get's while proving to me what I've heard and figured since XL ended but that's a whole other story.

I would have to agree with that. Just because he's 'wondering why' about the past
doesn't mean he's taking a shot. God forbid you criticize "Big" Ben" , but, on the other hand,
God forbid you criticize Bill Cowher. It goes both ways.

I think this is good. It's time for him to step up and be an elite QB. I thought last year was going to be his coming out party but due to a few minor setbacks, heh, it got put on hold.

Ben is going to do awesome this year. I wish we just had one more playmaking WR. Our receiver core would look pretty week if Ward or Holmes went down with an injury for an extended amount of time.

I think ben will run it great and we will have a better scoring offense this year.
