The Steelers have long been a ground-and-pound team, a group that wins by running the football first and foremost.

That may change a good bit this year. Speaking to reporters, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said that the offense will run the no-huddle a lot this year.

“I think it's something that we realized where we can be and what we did last year, and where we were successful, so I think we'll use it more,” quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

The offense is replacing Emmanuel Sanders, who left for Denver in free agency. They are welcoming Lance Moore to the offense, however, to fill that spot in the slot position. Darrius Heyward-Bey is also an addition that the Steelers will hope can help their passing attack.

The Steelers need to pick the pace up and try something new as the offense was stagnant at times a year ago. With a proven quarterback like Roethlisberger, it may be smart to put the ball in his hands more.
