Ben Downplays Drama with OC Haley
It seems Ben Roethlisberger is backpedalling a little bit from his comments about new offensive coordinator Todd Haley. As you may recall, Roethlisberger was upset when former OC Bruce Arians was let go, and did not warm up to Haley immediately.
He then made some comments about the new playbook calling it confusing and a “Rosetta Stone”. Now Ben is saying he has no problem with Haley. When asked about their relationship and his opinion on the new playbook, Ben said:
“Yeah, we’re great. People blew it way out of proportion. Its just something new that we’re getting to know each other…There’s no trouble between us at all.”
“Its just something new. It’s change, it’s different. Doesn’t mean that it is good or bad. We’re just learning something new. You know when you get a comfort level of like eight years in the same thing and then you change it, its just something different. I’m not saying I don’t like the playbook or anything like that. Some of the stuff, the concepts are awesome, it’s just getting an understanding of something new.”
