Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians hears Ben Roethlisberger's campaign speech so often, he probably can recite it.
It goes something like this: Roethlisberger believes this would be a very good week to run the no-huddle offense.
Arians says his quarterback is lobbying to use it again Monday night against Denver, which is coming off a 30-7 loss to Baltimore in which the Ravens ran 31 plays out of a no-huddle look.
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 makes sure everyone is lined up before taking the snap, often in a shotgun formation. The goal is to prevent the defense from shuffling players on and off the field.
