Still ticking: "Big Ben" to set franchise mark vs. Texans

PITTSBURGH (AP) Randy Fichtner watched the big kid with the strong arm and the sense of invincibility that is the province of the very young and immediately grew worried.

So Fichter, then the Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterbacks coach, suggested to Ben Roethlisberger that he might want to think about getting rid of the ball a little sooner. Push the tempo a little faster. Don't take so many risks. Absorb fewer hits.

In other words, play it safe.
