Roethlisberger admits there was 'some frustration' with Haley's offense in 2013

New, comments

The Steelers quarterback admitted to a bit of an issue over play terminology, but downplayed the idea he and offensive coordinator Todd Haley were 'butting heads.'

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger admitted to reporters Saturday in wake of the Steelers' first practice of the 2013 training camp there was "some frustration" in regards to Todd Haley's offense in 2012, but only because a few plays were named one thing previously, but something else in Haley's regime.

It shows the undeniable vision the Tecmo Bowl series displayed when each team had a different play for "B-Down." Perhaps Roethlisberger only ever played with one team in the famous video game series, and got used to the idea of running the power sweep each time he hit A-Up.

The point being, Roethlisberger admitted there were those points of conflict, but also said the idea of them butting heads was blown well out of proportion.

He also admitted to the offense having gone back to the old plays names at the start of what resulted in a four-game winning streak from Weeks 7-10.

Roethlisberger was hurt in Week 10, missing the second half as well as the next three games.
