The Pittsburgh Steelers are no longer the intimidating, game changing defense they once were.
Any chance the Steelers have of being successful and making a deep playoff run will come off the backs of the Pittsburgh offense.
Only problem is that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger doesn’t feel the offense is explosive enough right now to do such a thing according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Roethlisberger was asked about Todd Haley’s offense, and held back no punches in critiquing the small plays the offense is producing.
“It’s kind of a dink-and-dunk offense.”
“There’s room for more big strikes.”
“There’s a guy calling the plays. That’s on him.”
“Sometimes, we’ll call something long, and it’s just not there,” he said. “For us, the big thing is that when we get into the red zone, we don’t get complicated. We need to finish drives.”
Not sure you can call that a shot fired, but Roethlisberger has the ring protection and credibility to make such a claim.
Your move Mr. Haley.
