PITTSBURGH — Ben Roethlisberger doesn’t think he and Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley need to be best friends to co-exist. The quarterback, however, also knows he can’t start calling Haley out when things don’t go as planned, no matter how bothered the Steelers captain may get by the playcalling It’s why Roethlisberger apologized to Haley, coach Mike Tomlin and owner Art Rooney II after making pointed remarks about the direction of the offense following a 27-24 overtime loss to Dallas on Sunday. “I let my frustrations jump out after a game, I don’t usually do that,” Roethlisberger said. “Usually, I keep it under control. I was just frustrated with myself and I’ll be better at that.” Roethlisberger completed 24 of 40 passes for 339 yards and two touchdowns against Dallas but also threw a critical interception on the second play of overtime that set up the game-winning field goal. Afterward he expressed disappointment in Haley’s decision to stay away from the “no-huddle” offense. And he wondered why Haley didn’t feature tight end Heath Miller, who had six receptions for 85 yards in the first half and just one catch for seven yards in the second.
