Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has voiced his happiness over the direction of the team's new offense this offseason. "There've been some changes this offseason in some of the offensive philosophies, playbook and some things that I think are good," Roethlisberger said. "It's some compromise from all the different position coaches, the running back coaches, the line and quarterback coaches. I think we've taken a little bit of everything and made it a lot better."
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear what changes were made to the offense by Todd Haley and the rest of the coaching staff, but things definitely needed to be altered after the offense had no consistency last year. Emmanuel Sanders must pick up some slack now that Mike Wallace is out of the picture, and the running attack must be more productive, as well. The new scheme may favor more deep passes after Big Ben complained of too many dink-and-dunk routes last season.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Landry Jones said his main goal is to simply gain an understanding of the team's offense and not one day replace QB Ben Roethlisberger as the team's starting quarterback. "I have no idea," Jones said. "You might want to talk to the coaches or Mr. Rooney on that one, what they want to do. I'm just here to learn football. They give me an opportunity to come play." General manager Kevin Colbert and head coach Mike Tomlin insist the team did not draft Jones as the quarterback of the future but to provide a youth movement at the position.
