Ben Roethlisberger called his own plays against Buffalo, upset with the sideline. Yes, this Todd Haley thing is going very smoothly.

Ben: "What the fuck, HB dive on 3 and 12"?


Alright fellas get in here, I got trips right on 3. Ready break.

They had more yards on the drive Ben Roethlisberger called plays than in the entire half when Haley was calling plays :)

"Well, I called the plays, and I can see what's going on defense," Roethlisberger told NFL.com and NFL Network's Kimberly Jones at halftime. "Guys made great plays. We had a running back make a catch on the sideline like a receiver. We utilized the middle of the field, guys got out of bounds and it saved us time. We only had one timeout, and we didn't have to use it until we got all the way down. So I think it was a pretty successful drive for us."

Can't blame him. Hiring Haley in Pittsburgh was absolutely the worst match ever. Ben is the king of breaking plays. It's his entire game. Haley is all about running his syetm to perfection. I know they wanted to get Ben's ass in gear but, their styles are the problem. Why would you hire a guy who won't play to Ben's strength? I dunno? maybe they want him to be more of a straigh line pocket passer to extend his career?

Whether Ben likes to play his way is irrelevant. Whether that style has worked in the past is irrelevant. Bens way of broken plays is a sure way to shorten his career by several years. He's 30 now and at the point in his career when most qbs of his style have to make some changes.

He set us back imo. We should have been good last year and we would have if he hadn't been the coach. I resent him. He goes around yelling at everyone and he never even played college football. He was a golf player in college. He's Happy ****ing Gilmore.

He is a legend in his own mind. It's the way he ran training camp last year. It's the way he had the three person playcalling system with him, Muir, and Zorn. He thinks is so smart and that he can revolutionize the game or something. There is a reason the rest of the league did it one way.

He only had success in Arizona because of the weapons he had. He doesn't know how to run the ball. He ran off Charlie Weis. He was nothing without Weis.

I believe him about the phone tapping. I think Pioli did it and is a sociopath. I just don't care because I hate him so much. He wasted my time for three years. He's the same thing as lane Kiffen. A loser who is riding his daddy's name. I ****ing hate him.:)

Boy are you ever right. I mean think of the audacity of some of these know it all coaches that think they know something the rest of the league isn't doing. Those morans with the "West Coast" offense I mean WTF was that? And the Forward pass? Stupid. If you don't run up the middle you aren't playing football thats arena football.

Yep, but the point is that Haley isn't one of those guys. He is no where near being one of those guys. That's what makes it funny. He's a legend in his own mind.

He hasn't had a healthy season in ages. His body is breaking down. He can't afford yet another concussion. And a lot of that is because of Arians' wide open offense that allowed Ben to freelance and get clobbered in the pocket.

Arians was a productive oc. Yet he was let go. Did you ever stop to think that offensive production isn't always a good thing? I'm sure Arians was let go because the Rooneys know his style is going to shorten bens career.

It's simply amazing how many people here will stretch the truth to criticize a guy.

The idea that big Ben should keep being big Ben is laughable, no matter how good he's been. These are probably the same people who think Michael Vick should continue to be a largely running qb.

The idea that Haley is the main reason cassel has struggled is equally laughable.

It's what we do to feel better about ourselves as fans of the team.

Not to defend Bob, but this whole "Bill Walsh was an innovative genius" is utter bullshit.

He simply took the short passing game of Sid Gillman's offense and made it the base offense for the 9ers, and Hank Stram's "offense of the 70s" was essentially the same offense, with the added wrinkle of the moving pocket.

Sid Gillman was the last true innovator in the NFL.

That's exactly what I was saying. However, I think it's a mistake. I don't think ben can transition his game. They would be more likely to win one more superbowl with him if they just let him continue imo. It will shorten his career but, the guy has already gotten you three Superbowl appearences. The Rooney's got greedy and I think it will cost them.

Ben is going to shorten his own career with his style not his OC and if they want to protect his life span then why have they had a shit line for so many years? So Haley was hired to run the ball and help Ben? That's nutts. Haley was hired because of his family history to the team and they think for some reason he can do more with Ben. He also fits the coaching style they like but what they don't realize is that Haley just yells alot and is intense. He really isn't very good at being an OC.

They can win multiple super bowls with a smash mouth approach too. I don't think either offense is any better or worse. The new approach will bring the steelers defense back. And it gets you big Ben at 100% instead of playing half of every season nursing a serious injury.

No such claim was made, Walsh adopted a new system at the time that no one was using and won SBs with it. Gilman just used the forward pass that had been used before. Plenty of short passes had been thrown before Gilman so by your definition he didn't innovate anything either. Genius in the NFL is doing something that isn't commonly in use and surprising your opponents with something they haven't seen. Thats the only genius that was claimed.

I disagree completely. I think Haley's worst quality is that he doesn't know how to run the ball effectively. I think he will set them back quite a bit. He doesn't help the defense.

Gillman took a rudimentary passig game that had two or three routes, and expanded it.

He created the full route tree that is used by the NFL today, and he made the TE a part of the passing game.

He also fits the coaching style they like but what they don't realize is that Haley just yells alot and is intense. He really isn't very good at being an OC.

The shit line is largely a product of Arians' offense. The same way martz's shit line was too. Arians throws the ball all the freaking time. He spreads the offense out. And he gives Ben the ability to improvise, meaning Ben holds on to the ball way longer than any qb does. And when Ben improvises, his offensive line has to improvise too, and that's very hard to do when their back is to the qb.

This isn't rocket science. If you are great at running the ball, defenses will not be as effective stopping your passing game. Haley's offense is going to force Ben to get rid of the ball faster. Reducing freelancing will keep his offensive line aware of where Ben is.

I don't know how good Haley is really as an oc. I do know that the Rooneys are outstanding at evaluating coaching talent and have no history of the nepotism you speak of. And I know this new approach to handling big Ben is a very smart approach. We will see how it works.

Wow.... just wow.

Gillman practically invented the modern passing game.

His practice routines and film study are also commonly used today. He's a huge innovator.

Where do you get that from? The offense ran the ball as well as you would expect running with Jackie battle behind a qb who allowed defenses to stack the box.

He installed a very good run blocking scheme in kc. And he was effective at running the ball against defenses expecting the run and loading 8 guys in the box to stop it.
