Default Roethlisberger and the pump fake

I am not sure if i just never noticed it, but anyone else see this new part of his game? i mean i know over the years he has done it every once in awhile, but last night he used it as a weapon. I LOVED IT. It is the best way to seperate a defense and he ran it to perfection.

This isn't new. He did this a lot last year as well and even in the 2005 season.

The main reason he can sell it so convincingly is that his hand is literally almost as big as the ball...and it IS effective, because safety's love to break on the ball early...

The great part about BR really working the pump fake is that by mid season opposing safeties will be coached to not break on the pump fake. So they will be sitting in their zones longer ... giving any throw without the pump fake a much better chance.

That's the beauty of how good he is at it...there's really no real a DB can determine if he's throwing it or not until the ball actually stays in or leaves his hand...they HAVE to respect that it could be either.

What about the numerous legendary pump fakes Ben used on the game winning drive in SB43? He was definitely using them then!
