The no-huddle offense will be commonplace in Pittsburgh this year.
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said at Organized Team Activities that going no-huddle will be the norm this year, and the Steelers wont just be running it when the game situations dictate it.
“I don’t want to call it our base offense, but I think you’ll see more of it, so it was more important for us to get it in early and often,” Roethlisberger said, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
New Steelers receiver Lance Moore, in his first year in Pittsburgh after eight in New Orleans, was surprised at how quickly the no-huddle has been installed.
“If you would’ve told me a month ago that we would be doing no-huddle on the fourth and fifth OTA, I would’ve said you are crazy,” Moore said.
But it’s not crazy. It’s just a part of the Steelers’ new offensive identity.
