Default Steelers offense dusts off no-huddle attack

Welcome news to many here who thought we should go all-K-Gun-all-the-time:

After a significant decrease in employing the no-huddle offense last year, the Steelers may dust it off against Atlanta on Saturday to the delight of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
"I love it, and so do the wide receivers," Roethlisberger said. "I like the change of pace. I like the up-tempo, and it's hard for the defense to substitute."
The Steelers ran the offense much more frequently two years ago compared to last year. That was because of young receivers such as Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders, along with having a lot of new starting offensive linemen, including rookie center Maurkice Pouncey.
With the receivers more acclimated to the offense and Pouncey emerging as a Pro Bowler, the return of the no-huddle could be a regular part of the game plan.
Roethlisberger said he would like to see the offense pick up where it left off in last week's 24-14 victory over the Eagles, with the added wrinkle of the no-huddle.
"We want to establish ourselves and what we want to do," Roethlisberger said. "We may go some no-huddle, and if we do that then I would like to execute that well."

This was more or less expected. Having too many inexperienced parts, plus Roethlisberger missing the first four games of the season, really screwed up a lot of the chemistry issues that are involved in successfully running the no huddle. It should be a very effective weapon this year.

I've heard the lie before. I'll believe it when I see it ALOT!

I think if our offense is not in sync after two series, then run it once. Of course at the end of halfs and when you're behind more than one score.

And yet, disturbingly, Arians always seems to slow down the tempo in those situations.

Anything to take the play calling out of Bruce Arians hands.

I actually think ben is quite effective running the no-huddle and I really hope we employ it more this year.
