Pittsburgh Steelers has always been the pioneer of the training methods and tactics reform in the NFL. After the robots called mobile virtual player appeared in the daily training in Pittsburgh, the Steelers also showed a gutsy move and a new departure on the team tactics.
Since the NFL adopted a longer extra point system (33-yard) in 2014, it undoubtedly led to a lower success rate of the traditional one-point try. Therefore, the Steelers audaciously converted two-point conversions since the 2015 season. The reward was proved to be worth of the risk which no doubt emboldened the coaches and players. The Steelers hit at a rate of 72.7 percent in their 11 times for two-point during the last season. Ben Roethlisberger, the player of Pittsburgh Steelers, said that the Steelers should go for two points after each touchdown.
Speaking of Ben Roethlisberger, the excellent quarterback has completed a total of passes for 8,890 yards, 8.3 yards per attempt with a success rate as high as 67.5 percent during the last two seasons. He also completed 53 touchdowns against 25 interceptions. The figure in the white or black jersey with oversized squared-off 7 in the front has brought a decade of elite play to the fans who gave him a lovely nickname, Big Ben. No doubt the youth replica jersey of Big Ben has been sold out on the EBay and Amazon. The Amazon put the tag currently unavailable on the website and admitted that they don’t know when or if this replica jersey will be back in stock.
Now Pittsburgh Steelers is considered to have the most powerful strike-force in NFL. With Big Ben, one of the league’s very best offenses with enough talent, the coach of Pittsburgh Steelers Mike Tomlin would probably lead the team of bees to win the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
