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.
