Looking to improve their offense from a year ago, the Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to use more no huddle looks in 2014.

“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.

Gone are receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery which has made things difficult early on.

“It was a little sub-par, but it’s going to happen like that sometimes,” Roethlisberger said following a practice this week where they used an entire period on the no-huddle. “How can we come back, bounce back, because we’re not going to score on every series and be going no-huddle.”

Calling 15 or more no-huddle plays throughout the final nine games of the 2013 season the Steelers went 6-3.
