When asked after the game, Ben didn't hesitate the difference on offense...the no-huddle. We need to have this as a large staple of our offense from here on out.

Less BA and more no huddle.

I agree, but some on this board have said that's not possible. I've asked why, but didn't get an answer.

Because running up the middle on first and second downs without a FB, against a stout divisional rival that have big ugly defensive players familiar with our run schemes, using a running back that prefers to dance rather than run north/south... is a very sound offensive game plan.

The playcalling 1st & Goal from the 2 with a 3rd string O line and no Heath or Spaeth --- it was so completely incompetent as to be unforgiveable.

I'm one who think the no huddle shouldn't be our base offense. The no huddle works because we use it sparingly and its a great change of pace. If we played like this all game every week it wouldn't work IMO....

I love the way it was used last night... the Ravens weren't expecting it and it worked. If they come into the game knowing it's our base offense I'm sure they would have packages in place beforehand.

And what happens in no huddle?

More wides, and less tight ends.

You're welcome.

It also takes less time off the playclock which could be bad for our D.

What got it done was the defence. The O was terrible for the most part. If not for an amazing play by Troy, and herculean efforts from Ben and Redman, we lose the game. Even with those plays, I doubt we win if Woodley doesn't give us another 10-15 after the fumble.

The O was bad with or without the huddle.

Yeah, but the way it's worked, we've had less 3-and-outs WITH the no-huddle, thereby taking MORE time off the clock.

We're better when we spread the field, and let Ben make the calls.

Steelers Notebook: QB rides shotgun, absorbs more hits

Monday, December 06, 2010
By Gerry Dulac and Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Blood runs from Ben Roethlisberger's nose after taking a sack against the Ravens in the first quarter Sunday in Baltimore.

BALTIMORE -- The Steelers lost punter Daniel Sepulveda for the rest of the season in Sunday night's game with the Ravens when the ACL in his right leg was torn, the third time he has had that injury since his college days.

The team will likely sign a punter to take his place this week.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger also will have surgery to repair a broken nose, sustained in the first series when he was sacked by the Ravens Haloti Ngata, who hit the quarterback in the face with his left hand.

Roethlisberger, though, will be able to play next Sunday against Cincinnati.

Right tackle Flozell Adams left the game with a high ankle sprain and tight end Heath Miller left with a concussion.

Big Ben's mobility
Because of an injured right foot that restricted his mobility, Roethlisberger played most of the first half lined up in the shotgun formation.

Roethlisberger has a sprain and fracture in his right foot. He lined up under center for only five of the 31 snaps in the first half.

He took most of the snaps in the shotgun because it put less stress on his foot.

Roethlisberger was sacked twice in the first half. On the first one he was struck across the facemask by the left hand of Ngata, causing a bloody nose. No penalty was called on Ngata for a blow to the head.

In the second quarter, as he was chased from the pocket, Roethlisberger was shoved to the ground by safety Dawan Landry after he released the ball. No penalty was called, and Roethlisberger looked at referee Terry McAulay and waved his hand in disgust.

Dimed to depth
The Steelers used their dime defensive package, which employs six defensive backs, a lot last week in Buffalo because the Bills used formations with four wide receivers.

In that package, the Steelers take linebacker Lawrence Timmons -- one of their best players -- off the field and insert cornerback Anthony Madison as the sixth defensive back.

When cornerback Bryant McFadden was injured against the Bills, the Steelers had to reach further into their bench for cornerback Keenan Lewis when they took Timmons off the field, a move that doesn't seem to make sense.

But defensive coordinator D!ck LeBeau does that because he doesn't want Timmons matched against a wide receiver.

The Steelers didn't think they would use that package much against the Ravens because LeBeau wanted Timmons on the field to match against running back Ray Rice. Plus, the Ravens rarely use four wide receivers at once.

Steelers bend
Until the Ravens got a 14-yard touchdown on the Joe Flacco-to-Anquan Boldin pass with 1:59 remaining in the first quarter Sunday night, the Steelers had allowed one touchdown in the previous 150 minutes, 10 seconds.

Boldin's touchdown was the first against the Steelers in the red zone since the New England game Nov. 14.

Broom bowl
The Ravens failed to sweep the season series with the Steelers. The only time they won both games against the Steelers in one season was in 2006. The Steelers won both games in 1997, '98, 2002, and '08.

Ravens give, don't yield
Despite 16 giveaways in their first 11 games, the Ravens started the game without having allowed a single touchdown off a turnover all season. The Steelers broke that streak in the fourth quarter, scoring their only touchdown after a fumble by Flacco when he was sacked by Troy Polamalu.

The end
The Steelers snapped Baltimore's eight-game home winning streak as well as the Ravens' string of nine consecutive games in which they'd piled up at least 300 yards of offense.

Post-Gazette columnist Gene Collier contributed to this report.

You may not appreciate agreeing with him, but in a past PC I think BA basically stated the same thing, that you cannot run the no-huddle all game long because it somehow looses it's effectiveness. I am not sure what this defensive package would look like if they game-planned for it, because you still need players against the pass and run, it's not the same as a two-minute offense that is typically pass-heavy.
