Hopefully with familiarity with the system. we get some improvement in the offense. It's lost it's most productive receiver and best running back off of a 20 something based ranking
Plus our only skill position player drafted in the top 2 rounds in the draft come opening day is
our rookie RB bell with Heath not likely to start the season
of sure why some think this can be a dynamic offense. Hopefully I'm wrong
My point is simply this:
Ben could have conducted himself last year in the manner that he is choosing to conduct himself this year.
I give him mad props for being mature and professional and coming in and communicating with Haley and the other coaches...
I just wish he would have done that last season...
What the FO has to do with this? I don't know...
Ben continued to learn the Haley system like a good soldier..No other HOF QB would have been treated like that
And WRs did struggle last season...AB84 and MW went from Pro-Bowlers to mediocre....now i don't blame everything on Haley but he had a role to play...Even running game was mediocre..
Rd 1: Cordarrelle Patterson - WR
Rd 2: Sio Moore - ILB/OLB
Rd 3: Christine Michael - RB
Rd 4: Shamarko Thomas - SS
Rd 5: Lerentee McCray - OLB
Rd 6(a): Ryan Griffin - QB
Rd 6(b): Micah Hyde - CB
Rd 7: Vince Williams - ILB
This is communication:
And it could have happened last year...that's all I'm saying...“There's been some changes this offseason in some of the offensive philosophies, playbook and some things that I think are good,” Roethlisberger said as he began his 10th season with the team. “It's some compromise from all the different position coaches, the running back coaches, the line, and quarterback coaches. I think we've taken a little bit of everything and made it a lot better.”
On Tuesday, it was Roethlisberger who disclosed the offensive changes. “(Running backs coach) Kirby (Wilson) and Randy (Fichtner, the quarterbacks coach) and guys really wanted to contribute and get some points and some things across that they felt could help this team. We all did,” he said. “It was nothing about, ‘Let's change this offense.' It was about, ‘How can we get better?' We're making strides to be better.”
I think it's hilarious that "now" Ben gets it June of his second year in a new offense. I'm pretty sure the rest of our offense is just now getting it as well.
Did people really expect perfection in our first year with Haley? What happens if the offense looks the same or worse?
The media is playing fans like a fiddle with these non stories. I could see if it was his 4th year with Haley and he was pouting or acting out but it's pretty hard to have input into an offense when it's brand spanking new and you haven't given it a shot to see what works and what doesn't.
