Now, I will give you that most of the time the team that wins generally wins time of possession. But many of those teams are more concerned about scoring than just possessing. They'll take shots down field for a quick score. With the Steelers, they seem more concerned with just possessing. Otherwise, why did Haley hold the WRs to routes that only went 5-10 yards beyond the line of scrimmage most of the time? The Steelers took it to the extreme with time of possession, and thus took points away from themselves. It's a quick strike league. They need to stop fearing the quick strike teams and become one.
I was under the impression it was because they wanted to limit Ben's exposure to contact.
