It's just Ben's way of taking a shot at Haley is all.

How many people have a new boss take over at their job who wants to "change things" and how many people take shots at him or her for doing that - especially if everyone's used to doing something a certain way?

It's human nature.

Good......so start studying it. There's a new sheriff in town and things aren't going to go on as before. The buddy system is gone. I'm guessing their will be a lot more accountability......Haley will get in his face. It's also called having a "work ethic" and most people in the know thought Ben's was a bit lacking. Well, get to work.

Everybody, especially the writer of the story, is waaaay off base with this. The Rosetta Stone is a key to a cypher. It's a pattern to understanding a code. What Ben's saying is that he picked up a book today that basically unlocks the new offense. Essentially a guide to the new offense. Nothing more, nothing less.

The initial playbook that is being formulated will not be the same that is implemented when the season starts. Ben and Haley along with Tomlin will streamline the playbook after seeing what works, looks, is comfortable to Ben. If Ben digs his heels in and/or Haley does likewise than we will have a clusterf*#k worse than anything Ariens ever done to this team.

It is early and I would not read too much into anything about this, but I will caution the Steeler nation on this. I fear that with so many long time veterans gone and a new offensive scheme being put in place we could very well start slow and never really recover. If so the boo birds will be out in force. I am hoping for a smooth transition and if not I hope to see improvement by mid season to gain momentum for next season. Just a cautionary view since we have been blessed the last few years, we could take a step back before making another giant leap

rosetta stone is marketed as being easy, so... maybe he's saying it's not rocket science

thats exactly what i thought when he said it. Rosetta Stone makes things MUCH easier. So i took it as him saying its new but won't be hard to read.
Too many dummies jumping to conclusions.

Or maybe Ben does not know what Rosetta Stone means?

We are talking about someone who several weeks ago referred to MarK Sanchez as "The Sanchez"' rather than his nickname "The Sanchize"

#7 is a great QB but nobody ever said he was going to beat you with his intellect

And maybe he just omitted the "dirty".

Here we go, now Ben is stupid, an idiot etc.

There is just no pleasing the real idiots of life.

the league rules are stupid. no football talk or meetings. If a player wants to meet and talk football, they should be able to do whatever they want. Between some crap here, the leagues talking heads and the true idiot who heads the NFLPA, Im not sure who can hold the idiots trophy.
