Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger talked earlier today about wanting to run the no-huddle offense more moving forward and the stats tweet by Mark Kaboly got me curious to the Steelers stats running the no-huddle this year. As Kaboly states, Roethlisberger is 6 of 13 for 86 yards this year in the no-huddle with 1 interception and no touchdowns. He has also been sacked once. The Steelers only ran once in the no-huddle this season and it was an Issac Redman 2-yard run on 3rd and 1 from the Titans 29 yard-line. That play was the only time they have gone no-huddle in the 1st quarter this season.
As Kaboly also pointed out, only once did they run a near exclusive series of no-huddle plays and that was late against the Ravens in week 1 when the game was well out of reach. Roethlisberger went 3 of 6 for 34 yards on that series and was sacked once. The 2nd & 10 play from the Ravens 28 though did have a huddle before it however.
The Steelers mostly ran the no-huddle with the 11 personnel package that includes 1 running back, 1 tight end and 3 wide receivers. The formation of choice mostly was having 1 in the backfield with the 4 others out wide. 5 times they did go empty set at the snap of the football.
Only 2 of the 13 passes attempted were of the deep variety. 6 were to the short left area, 2 to the short right and 3 to the short middle.
Roethlisberger was blitzed 4 times on these plays and was 1 of 3 passing with 1 sack. The interception of course was the play right before halftime against the Titans.
Since the Ravens game, Roethlisberger is 1 of 6 passing in the no-huddle for 18 yards and the 1 interception.
