Ben Roethlisberger admits he and Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley "had one little incident" in Denver.

For the most part Roethlisberger and Haley have gotten along, but it turns out a small incident did occur during the Steelers 31-19 loss to the Broncos on Sept. 9.

"We had one little incident, I walked away. I'll leave it at that. I walked away," Roethlisberger said via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette..

The next week it was obvious Haley and Roethlisberger were over the incident as the Steelers beat the New York Jets, 27-10. Roethlisberger completed 24 of 31 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns.

"It felt good," Roethlisberger said. "Not everything was clean, but it's early. I had to scramble around some and you'd like to avoid that. But the good thing about it is, when it happened, the guys were on the same page. They never quit on plays. They know I'll never quit on plays."

The two-time Super Bowl champion quarterback says he's been criticized for not throwing the deep ball more.

"Somebody said to me the other day that it looks like I'm doing more dinking and dunking and sliding in the pocket," Roethlisberger said. "I don't feel like I'm doing anything differently. If guys are open on the check downs, I get it to them. I've always done that. I'm playing the way I always play."

The Steelers should be just fine for the season if Haley and Roethlisberger only have one incident. Roethlisberger always has Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown for the deep ball.
