If Ben wanted to draw national attention to the question of how ow Haley and he get along by his comments to the Tribune-Review last week, mission accomplished. Peter King chimes in

I think you should watch for chinks in the Steeler offensive harmony. Ben Roethlisberger has been taking little shots at first-year offensive coordinator Todd Haley, and Friday, he told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, "Haley's offense is not a big-play offense. It's kind of a dink-and-dunk offense." Asked about wanting more downfield throws, Roethlisberger said: "There's a guy calling the plays. That's on him." There was a gulf between Haley and his quarterback in Kansas City, Matt Cassel, and now there might be some with Roethlisberger.

they don't need to be best friends, but Ben also doesn't need to talk in Riddles and be a passive-aggressive s.o.b. either. He and everyone with a half a brain knows what he is doing by saying what he has been saying lately.

Nobody knows what's really going on between Ben and Haley but there was one moment last night when the camera showed Ben talking to Tomlin alone and away from other players and coaches after a score and if I were to put a caption to that moment it would read: "See how things work better if you let me call the plays?"

For all I know, Ben could have been telling Tomlin what his favorite pizza topping is, but it sure didn't look that way.

I saw that at the end of the first half as well - for all I know Ben was saying why in the world are we going for 2 points in the first half or maybe he was saying see what happens when I do not throw to Wallace - it is pure speculation

it is just reality - I don't think there is some cataclysmic event that will prevent this team from moving forward or Ben continuing to be the 3rd down master -

the lack of communication between them and making a comment when one doesn't need to be made is palpable though - I more or less get annoyed by it because with as many problems this version of the Steelers has, why not be a leader and at least say the right things to prevent all the chirp instead of flaming it?

Why would Bruce Arians need an "apologist"?

Why would coaching an offense to 5 winning seasons and 2 Super Bowl appearances require an apology?

Did you actually see the moment during last night's game I am referring to?
I think that anyone who saw that exchange would be thinking the same thing I was thinking.

there are some crazy, looney comments on here. No one knows what Ben was talking to Tomlin about. QB's talk to head coaches all the time, every game.
Stop the madness.

Of course it is (See: "Pizza topping comment)

And I'm just "speculating" as to what was being said based upon the way Ben was leaning into Tomlin along with his overall body language.
As soon as I saw that, my first thought was something along the lines of: "See? I told you so".
