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

This whole thing was doomed before it even started.

The funny thing is Ben was looking better then he's ever looked during the first half of the season. We had at least a resemblance of a running game and Ben was deadly efficient. We had some issues on defense...but it looked like we were just a few games away from finding our stride... then the 2nd half collapse.

The injuries came and the coaching staff started shooting them selves in the foot... now we are losing and Ben is pointing fingers.

Just another piece of evidence that the leadership of this team is weak. Good coaches can have bad years...and when they do, the players don't point fingers. We are starting to implode. We are sloppy and unprepared....and capable of being the best team in the NFL.

The players no longer have faith in the coaching staff... when's the last time you saw that in Pittsburgh?

I do remember Bill Cowher taking over the offense once. anyone think Mike Tomlin is capable?

We were laughed at and told that the media was just taking Ben's comments out of context and making stuff up. We were told that things would be peachy. As we sit here now at 7-7 and hear of Ben's comments after the Cowboys game, is there a possibility that we were right to be concerned back in the summer?

I don't know how to say it - I hope you guys know what I mean.

He has been prodded and prodded since the preseason. He needs to shut his mouth and be politically correct. We didn't lose because of play calling, we lost because of silly mistakes. Maybe we should've thrown 6 or 7 more bubble screens to avoid these kind of questions.

You know, if my QB had the 30th QB rating in the league on deep ball throws, I would probably be apprehensive to sling it more, too. I think Haley is doing a fairly solid job. It's not his fault Mike Wallace drop balls. It's not his fault there are O-Line injuries. It's not his fault that Mendenhall was hurt, then forgot to hold onto the ball. It's not his fault that Roethlisberger and Wallace have not been on the same page in terms of the deep ball. Haley is solid, the players are just inconsistent overall.

I believe you, Wallace108, because I remember it. If I remember correctly, you and Tony (can't remember if there were others, sorry) were very vocal and concerned about it at the time.

I believe you too Wallace, not sure why you took my attempt at a joke so in the wrong way...
