    Can you imagine if they didn't have the dropsy's early on? I think that there were at least three passes that Ben threw on the money that weren't caught.

    Big Ben shreds Buffalo Bills on 98-yard scoring drive

    By Marc Sessler
    Published: Aug. 25, 2012


    With 15 days to go until his team plays a meaningful game, Ben Roethlisberger already was in regular-season mode.

    The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback sunk a knife into the Buffalo Bills on Saturday night with a two-minute drill for the (preseason) ages.

    Starting on Pittsburgh's 2-yard line with just 1:46 remaining in the first half, Big Ben marched the Steelers on an 11-play, 98-yard drive in 1:33, capped by a 6-yard touchdown strike to Antonio Brown. Roethlisberger was 7-for-8 passing for 92 yards on a frantic run in which Bills coach Chan Gailey seemed to age seven years.

    Roethlisberger's touchdown toss gave Pittsburgh a seven-point lead at halftime, and they eventually won 38-7.

    "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."

    We've been beaten to near-death with cautionary words about offensive coordinator Todd Haley's run-heavy attack. When it mattered Saturday night, the Steelers' offense became Big Ben's playground. And that's really when this team shines.

    I think it's in Haley's best interest to unleash Ben. Just go no huddle all game.

    Too bad possibly one of the greatest drives in Steeler history had to be used in a pre-season game.

    If they were both on the field at the same time would that not solve the problem --if there is one? Last year the fans talked "Pony" backfield. In the past there has been talk of "Jumbo" backfields. But they never happen. Wonder why?
