Coach Mike Tomlin – 11-14

Posted by Teresa Varley on November 14, 2012 – 8:34 pm

Coach Mike Tomlin addressed the media following Wednesday’s practice regarding Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich.

Re: Making the decision to start Byron Leftwich:
We always lean on the expert advice of our medical staff. They didn’t think it was safe for him to play. Obviously, we are going with Leftwich.

Re: Ben Roethlisberger having an additional rib injury:
To my knowledge the injuries are one in the same. I don’t get into explicit details with you guys. I think they are connected. I don’t have a skeleton in front of me.

Do you have any sort of timeline for Roethlisberger’s return?
I live in the present. He is out this week.

Does the offense change with Leftwich?
Just to lean on his strengths and minimize his weaknesses. It’s not anything complex.

Re: His strengths:
He is a veteran guy. This isn’t his first rodeo. He has good, charismatic leadership. He can make all the throws on the field. We expect winning football from him.

Are you confident Roethlisberger will play again this year?
[Laughs] Next question.

Will you run the ball more this week?
We are going to do what is required for us to win the football game.

Are the mistakes you made last week in the run game correctable?
Yes.

Any update on Ryan Clark?
I am just talking about Ben.

Re: Comfort in knowing you have succeeded in the past without Roethlisberger:
I am not looking for comfort. I am looking for results. We are going to prepare and play the football game.
