08:04 AM ET 12.08 | So much for obfuscation. Ben Roethlisberger and coordinator Bruce Arians publicly announced their intentions of running plenty of no-huddle offense tonight against Cleveland at Heinz Field, and they seemed not a bit concerned to let the Browns in on it. "They should know it; we've done it three out of four weeks," Arians said. "As I get stale as a play-caller, I like to turn it over to No. 7. We have a wager on who gets to the end zone first." Opponents might have wagers on who gets to Roethlisberger first, huddle or no-huddle. The Browns are not a good pass-rushing team. ... But Roethlisberger has a way of making even the worst sacking defenses productive.

Why the no-huddle? Just run on the pathetic Browns all day.

Quote, "The Browns are not a good pass-rushing team"......well that is just one of the areas that they aren't good in.

Offensive intentions. Favre finally decided to share Jenn Sterger's number, huh?

"The Browns are not a good pass-rushing team. ..." The Browns are not a good team. No need for trying to pinpoint it.

If you don't live in either market and are scheduled to get this game...find something else to do. Blowout!!!

As a Cowboy fan it pains me to say this but I have to give credit where it's due, for my money Big Ben is the best qb in football. The only stat that matters is winning, and in the clutch with the chips down I'd take him over Brady, Manning, Breese, Rogers and of course Romo. The coolest under pressure qb since Montana.

Game changing news, how do you prepare for the no huddle anyway??

Most likely, but it is a divisional game. Strange things happen in those. Records don't always mean much.

Rodgers beat him last year in the Super Bowl
Brady has beaten him in the postseason a couple times

But nice logic :)

Brady won in the post season? Yeah I guess he did win one a long time ago. Course Ben has won two rings since then and Brady has watched it on TV, but nevermind

When I read the title I thought it would be about Ben and his fun at college bars.

Those off-duty cops didn't protect Ben in the bathroom any better than his O-line does on the field.

But once again, Ben scrambled for his life and proved very difficult to bring down.

Ben is more clutch than Brady. Watch Brady with the pass rush take a sack and BIG BEN shed the defender due to his size and mobility. I will have to give Rogers more time before I can call him the best.

December 8, 2011  10:14 AM ET

All this will be is a glorified practice for the Steelers to practice the no-huddle for future games, no big deal.

But Ben did beat Rodgers once a couple years ago and has one more ring, and your point is?

And Brady has done exactly what in the last 5 years?
