    I think the Steelers would like to run the no-huddle more, but for various reason never are able.
    Ummm, they DID run MORE no huddle last year. Open your eyes and you won't get "fooled" so much.

    The Steelers ran 239 no-huddle plays last year, or 23 percent of their plays. Roethlisberger was extremely successful in the offense completing 102 of 163 passes for 1,221 yards and 10 of his 28 touchdowns.
    Apparently, they used it quite a bit, especially in the second half of the season...

    The success in the second part of last year was largely because of increased use of the no huddle which kept defenses off balance. I do expect we will see more of it.

    With only Antonio Brown and Heath Miller as targets who are well versed in this offense, if they want to run more no huddle, the deciding factor for who gets the most playing time with them out there may be more between the ears than physical, since you have to know what you are doing in order to run the no huddle effectively. You can't be thinking out there...you have to know for sure what you are doing in order to be effective.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    I think this is part of the reason they are running it in OTA's so far. In addition to AB and Heath; Wheaton and Spaeth should not be a stranger to the play book and Moore should be able to catch on quickly.

    Wheaton played in the no huddle, mostly in the Detroit game...while it may not be a lot, he does have actual game experience in that package....

    Haley's coming around. I'd love to see him and Ben take a big step forward from the second half of last season. If we finally get him putting Ben consistently in position to be successful, this offense can be really good. I'm really hopeful with Munchak solidifying the guys up front and improving from the performance we got out of that unit.

    It just feels like we should be able to do things offensively that no one else can really do with #7 back there. Does it all finally start to click? I hope so.
