Mike Tomlin: Yeah, I’ve been enjoying it. You have to a little bit. And it’s nice to be in something other than sub-arctic temperatures, but we came down here to achieve a goal and our mind is strictly on that. Next?
Reporter: So far this postseason, Ben Roethlisberger hasn’t turned the ball over a single time. What have you been doing with him to minimize mistakes?
Tomlin: You know, we haven’t really been doing much out of our ordinary with the offense. That’s really on Ben. I’ve talked with him some about being smart with the ball and visualizing what he wants to do if plays break down.
Reporters: Ben! Ben!
Ben Roethlisberger: HI ASSEMBLED MEDIA
HOLD ON. THE BEN FILMING THIS FOR THE FUTURE BEN.
OKAY. ASK PROFESSIONAL QUESTIONS.
Reporter: Coach Tomlin just said he encouraged you to visualize what you had to do to succeed this postseason. What sort of things have you visualized?
Ben: HARF HARF HARF
WHY WOULD I NEED VISUAL EYES? EYES ARE ALWAYS VISUAL. THAT’S REDONDO.
BUT COACH ASKED ME TO USE THE BRAINSPOT’S EYE TO FOCUS ON WHAT THE BEN WANTS. AND THAT BEEN WORKING GOOD.
I GOTS VISUAL EYES ON VISUAL PRIZE.
COACH TOLD THE BEN TO BE CAREFUL WITH THE BALL. IMAGINE IT TO BE SOMETHING OF GREAT VALUE. COACH SAID NOT TO TRUST IT IN THE HANDS OF PEOPLE WHO GONNA MISTREAT IT.
Reporter: Based on your time working with him, what advice can you give to your defense about reading Roethlisberger and maybe confusing his looks at the alignment?
Ken Whisenhunt: People are making a lot of my time with Ben. And I know him okay. But that was the beginning of his career and he’s grown a lot as a player since then. So I don’t know if I have all the answers when it comes to his every mannerism and technique.
We’ll make some cosmetic changes to our defensive schemes, but I don’t see us doing all that much differently.
We done? Cool. Thanks.
I want more like this!
