According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and new offensive coordinator Todd Haley still haven’t met and likely won’t until next week.
“I haven’t talked to him,” said Roethlisberger on Thursday morning.
Roethlisberger is looking forward to finding out how Haley wants to direct the Steelers offense.
“I’ve gotten a lot of calls and texts and emails from people around the league, both good and bad about him,” Roethlisberger said in an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “Everybody has an opinion, as we all know, and they’re letting me know what their interaction with him was — good, bad and indifferent. I’ve heard a lot of things and I’m looking forward to meeting him and forming my own opinion.”
Haley wasn’t clear in his press conference on whether or not he’ll introduce an entirely new offense.
“It would probably be easy for him to do,” Roethlisberger said. “I don’t know if it would be easy for us to learn it. We’re so young on offense and the most-talented room in this whole building is probably wide receiver, no disrespect to anyone else. And they’re also really young.
“They’re still the tip of the iceberg in this offense and they did as well as they did last year. And they’re just getting to the point that ‘OK, this makes sense to me.'”
