“In these meetings I’ve had with coach Haley, he’s all about the no-huddle and using our wide-receiver weapons and throwing the ball and stuff like that.” — Ben

The Pittsburgh Steelers said they wanted to run the ball more often when they parted with former offensive coordinator Bruce Arians this offseason, but quarterback Ben Roethlisberger hasn’t noticed too much of a change with new OC Todd Haley, the Pro Bowler told NFL Network’s Rich Eisen.

“I get a little confused at times because so much has been made about us, quote-unquote, throwing the ball too much, or going back to Steeler football and running the ball more,” Big Ben said to Rich Eisen.

“People made such a big deal about us being so upset and hissy fits,” Roethlisberger said. “Nothing like that happened. You hate to see anybody that’s your family leave. So that was the tough part.”

Roethlisberger, who earned a degree from Miami University over the weekend, also spoke to Eisen about some of his recent coursework, including writing an essay for class on Tibet.
