“In a lot of games, the offensive coordinator to Quarterback headset, it will go out, doesn’t matter if it’s at home, on the road, it just never fails, there’s almost always some kind of communication [issues]. But what I was told and what Bruce [Gradkowski] told me when he listened was that when we had the ball on offense, our coach-to-coach communication were not only hearing themselves, but they were hearing the radio broadcast of the game. And from what I was told from Coach Haley, it was only when we had the ball. When the Patriots had the ball, there was no radio broadcast.”
Roethlisberger admits that communication issues happen all across the league, but this one was unique.
“It happens at a lot of stadiums. It happens at Heinz Field…That’s the first time that I had ever heard of anything happening when you hear a radio broadcast during a game, that’s new to me in hearing that. But like I said, it didn’t affect me at all, but it obviously affected the coaches, so whether that’s a coincidence it happened up there or what, I’m not really sure.”
“I always felt that they knew some of our offensive plays,” Roethlisberger said. “For whatever reason., maybe it was better scouting or whatever, but I had always felt that.”
IDK Ben, maybe when the Pats see something the other team does on tape when they are scouting them, they aren't actually shocked when they actually see them doing it in the game.
BTW, I think the Steelers are going to go something like 6-10. If four days later, they are still obsessed with this crap, they are a soft team. Even if the Pats did cheated, you need to move on. I think the Steelers are still biatching about this in the locker room.
