Roethlisberger talks about Arians and passing

Posted by Andy BenoitB. Roethlisberger

When Ken Whisenhunt was the offensive coordinator in Pittsburgh, he and Ben Roethlisberger did not always see eye to eye. That’s not an issue with the quarterback and current coordinator, Bruce Arians.

In an interview last week with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Roethlisberger talked about his relationship with Arians, and about their shared predilection for assaulting defenses through the air.

"If he were, I don't want to say 'allowed,' but his preference would be to throw the ball more, use the weapons we have and throw it," Roethlisberger said of Arians. "Mine's the same way.

"But we both think the same in the no-huddle, that we call a lot more runs because we know that's what we're supposed to do. And I don't know if that's 'supposed to' from the fans, the media, the owner, who knows? But it's just a feeling that you have that we better run the ball some. So we do think alike in a lot of those ways."

The Steelers became a pass-happy team in 2008 (their Super Bowl winning year) but have since leveled out to their more familiar black-and-blue run approach.

Hot Routes 4.10.11: Um, I'll pass on Cam Newton

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

  • Seems like everything is OK with Alabama WR Julio Jones’ foot after a re-check in Indianapolis. He still put on one of the most impressive performances at the NFL combine, considering he was performing on a fractured foot.
  • Apparently, Cam Newton is the type of player that teams hope other teams draft. Some squads don’t want Newton falling into their lap. Also within this report, Da’Quan Bowers had a productive meeting with the Bills, and Buffalo’s doctors cleared him.
  • Sounds like, just like many other teams, the Cowboys players are going to hold unsupervised offseason workouts assuming the lockout continues. However, there’s some sort of pact between the players that they’re not going to publicize the workouts. Oooh, mysterious!
  • A judge in Ohio has set former Ohio State QB Art Schlichter’s bond at $1 million.

Heath Miller suffers a setback

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

On Wednesday, Steelers TE Heath Miller practiced for the first time since suffering a horrific concussion against the Ravens. By Thursday, though, some post-concussion symptoms had returned, and now, his status for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets is in question. Miller

"He experienced a little headache," offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "Very cautious. We're not going to take any chances with him."

Since the headache was deemed minor, the team hopes Miller can practice Friday and be ready to go Sunday.
