Default Ben: New Playbook is a "Rosetta Stone"

http://www.steelersdepot.com/2012/04...tta-stone-book

Just goes to show how disorganized and senseless the B.A/Ben Offense Relationship was. B.A was not a coordinator. He was a buddy and never spurred Ben to, you know "study" and be more cerebral. Instead of "Do this better/Don't do this", we'll get "We won't do that anymore, throw it out".

So now that we finally get a coordinator who urges Ben to "study", he has a hard time figuring it out.

Yeah, that's what it means, all right.

"I do know some stuff from obviously being in the building and walking by the rooms, sneaking in the rooms by myself and trying to look at things, because you can't meet and talk football."

Or maybe it's another example of how stupid Ben is? Maybe Ben doesn't have the brains to figure out a complex playbook? Which might explain BA's simplistic offense?

You would be surprise how hard it is to learn a whole new playbook when you used just one playbook half of your career...

Yeah because it takes a real genius to call a fifty yard bomb on third and about an inch.

However, Rosetta Stone is the world's easiest way to learn a language, guaranteed.

This.

Amazing to listen to people dissect and OVER-analyze everything he says. He just made an on-the-fly jokingly comment. So f-ing what? I would have said the same thing. Big deal.
New playbooks are challenging to everyone. Even if your name is Tom Brady. Or insert any name here.
The comments all seemed overly-positive to me. Sheez.................

I love hearing this - we're actually gong to have real plays! I don't know whether I cheered louder when Arians was booted or when DeCastro was drafted.

This is going to be a great ride!
