Ben Roethlisberger Won’t Change His Style of Play in 2012

There’s been a ton of talk from inside the Steelers and out about QB Ben Roethlisberger changing his style of play in 2012 so he won’t take as many hits as he has in the past.

The QB went down 40 times last season, most in the AFC, and while sometimes extending plays works, many feel that Big Ben needs to make decisions quicker to avoid injury.

Ben seems to think differently, as he said on Wednesday that he’s not going to change the way he plays for anyone, including new OC Todd Haley.

“I’m not going to change my game,” Roethlisberger said. “Coach can do what he wants to add protection and do things like that. I’m going to play the game the way I know how. It’s worked OK for me so far.”

Roethlisberger has gone down 261 times since 2006, and last season the Steelers season basically was lost after he got hurt against Cleveland on a Thursday night in early December.

The team drafted linemen to keep him upright this season, and now it’s up to Ben to do his part. Just don’t expect a whole lot different from him.

“I don’t think there is this big revelation like I need to do this and do that,” Roethlisberger said. “It’s ‘don’t take hits,’ but I don’t know how to do that.”

Haley has already said he won’t be trying to stop Ben from throwing on the run, and he will not do a lot to change what Roethlisberger already does well.

“It’s one of the best things he does, and it’s what separates him from all the other guys in the league for the most part,” Haley said. “So you don’t want to take that great ability away from him.”

Ben Roethlisberger’s Agent Discusses Art Rooney II Notion That Ben May Need To “Tweak” His Style Of Play

*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***

Ben Roethlisberger’s agent Ryan Tollner joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on Sportsradio 93.7 The FAN to discuss Ben’s offseason and the comments made by Steelers Owner Art Rooney II that Ben may need to “tweak” his game because he’s always looking to evolve his game, and would like to avoid the hits the team doesn’t want to see him take.

Tollner also pointed out that Ben is very confident in his ability, and can change his playing style against different defenses because he’s capable of doing so many different things.

Ben is planning on playing in the Pro Bowl this year despite his high ankle sprain, and Tollner updated us on Ben’s health and why they don’t think he’s risking anything playing in the game due to the lack of hitting.

Tollner also discussed with us the front row seat he has had in watching the off field progression of Ben Roethlisberger and how he has been able to turn his reputation around.

We also discussed whether or not Ben was upset not being voted MVP by his teammates, and Ryan said absolutely not because Ben doesn’t care about individual accolades, he just wants to win championships and couldn’t be more happy for Antonio Brown.

We wrapped things up with Tollner getting his insight on the relationship between Ben and Hines Ward, as well as whether or not Ben would be willing to restructure his contract given that the team is so far over the salary cap heading into the offseason.
