Default Ben Disappointed There Wasn’t More No-huddle Used Against Cowboys

Roethlisberger Disappointed There Wasn’t More No-huddle Used Against Cowboys

Sunday, December 16th, 2012 by Dave Bryan

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger took the blame for the 27-24 overtime loss on Sunday to the Dallas Cowboys, but he also made it pretty clear via his post game responses to questions that he was not happy that they didn't get the ball to tight end Heath Miller more and that he was disappointed in not being able to run more no-huddle in the second half.

Roethlisberger was asked if the Cowboys defense did something different in the second half to take away Miller.

"No, I just don't think that we called the right plays to get him the ball," said Roethlisberger. "There were a couple of times we called plays that we didn't execute correctly."

Roethlisberger was also asked about the lack of no-huddle offense used in the second half and he finally responded after an awkward long pause.

"The second half we really didn't do much of it and that's disappointing," said the Steelers quarterback.

It is no secret that Roethlisberger likes to be in control of the offense, and although there has been no real notable blowups between him and offensive coordinator Todd Haley this season, you can tell by his post game comments that he was very unhappy with the play calling on Sunday as well as the lack of use of the no-huddle.

The Steelers can't afford to lose another game if they want to make the playoffs. Should they wind up not making the post season tournament you can expect that you will hear more from Roethlisberger in regard to his dissatisfaction with Haley and his offense. Roethlisberger clearly thinks the offense should have more of his input and this could ultimately lead to a quick exodus of Haley if he gets his wish.

I somehow doubt that a play was sent in calling for Ben to end the game by throwing up an interception. TBH, when an offense is executing as poorly as we were, I don't see why a coach would let the players take more control.

I want to know who the hell called that PA Pass from under center on 2nd and 18 toward the end of regulation????

That was a sh** call that was obviously going to get Ben sacked

Ben has been so passive aggressive with the media all year in regard to Haley.

I believe his gripe doesn't have to do with just this game, but in general. The fans have been told there would be more no-huddle this year, and it really hasn't happened. That's probably because the Steelers are enamored with time of possession.

Oh well, no different than any other year.
