It looked like Ben got rid of the ball much quicker in the Titans game than he has in a very very long time. The OL did a better job, but Ben also did a better job of releasing the pass quickly.
Was the reason for the quick release, the fact that Ben knew he could not scramble, so he took what was available? Or was it the play calling?
Let me preface this whith the fact I do not like BA. I think he is a bad play caller, has not done a good job of coaching up Ben and his scheme does not fit the Steelers OL or complement the defense. (more on that another day)
My guess is that Ben knew he could not run and escape, so he took what was available in order to live another day. The OL, especially Max played well. The ability to run the ball kept the defense on its toes. The play calling was better, but still, there were a few boneheaded calls. Empty sets when you know your QB can't move to save his life is down right dumb.
Hopefully, Ben has learned that a quick release is better than getting hit over and over again.
