Big Ben lobbying for more no-huddle - [Full Article]

Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians hears Ben Roethlisberger's campaign speech so often, he probably can recite it.

It goes something like this: "You know, I think this would be a good week for the no-huddle."

Of course, Roethlisberger believes every week is a good week to run the offense he likes best.

"He's lobbied every week for it," Arians said Thursday.

No doubt Roethlisberger is especially eager to go to the no-huddle Monday night in Denver, given how much success the Baltimore Ravens had while running 31 plays out of no-huddle sets during their 30-7 victory over the Broncos last weekend.

In the no-huddle, the quarterback gathers the team at the line of scrimmage immediately after a play ends, makes the next play call there and sets everyone up properly before taking the snap, often in a shotgun formation. Usually, there's not enough time for the defense to make substitutions.
