Mike Tomlin responds to Ben Roethlisberger QB sneak talk

Mike Tomlin responds to Ben Roethlisberger QB sneak talk

Following the Steelers 45-42 upset loss the the Jaguars, Bell was asked if he wanted to return to Pittsburgh.

While New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is now considered the all-time king of quarterback sneaks, Roethlisberger has quite the success rate when it comes to his own number being called. "And I don't have the freedom to check to a quarterback sneak, because we don't have that call if we're not in the huddle".

Roethlisberger said on his weekly radio show Tuesday morning that he won't commit to football past 2018 but stressed continuity for players and coaches in the offense is key. Since then, there's been a lot of discussion about why quarterback Ben Roethlisberger didn't attempt a sneak. Florio notes that the partners, who became involved with the team back in 2009 when the National Football League ordered the Steelers to restructure their ownership to come into compliance because of their dealings with horse and dog racing, do not have any say in management decisions.

Allow me to look one more year ahead: Ben has a contract for two more seasons that will pay him $20 million per season.

The most interesting thing Ron Cook and Andrew Filliponi asked him about, though, was whether or not he can audible into a quarterback sneak in a situation where it's 4th-and-1, like the two plays the Steelers faced against the Jaguars. I would love the quarterback sneak. "He wants to be the reason why and I work to not stifle that", Tomlin said.

"I don't have any control over the coaching staff...obviously that's very apparent in a few years ago when B.A. [Bruce Arians] was gone".

Pressed about whether Haley's work was satisfactory, Tomlin said he wouldn't have definitive answers as a way to avoid any misinformation.

Regardless, his comments serve as a shot across the bow.

The Steelers have never finished worse than 8-8 during Tomlin's tenure, and his record is better at this point than Bill Cowher's was (110-66, with one Super Bowl win). "Hopefully we'll get into more of it".

The Steelers coach made no apologies for his perceived overconfidence or Sunday's game strategy, saying: "I'm not anxious about those types of things".
