3. Why rush BB back at 20% (or 50%)??? Did you not see what happened last season? Allow me to re-cap:
--BB gets hurt
--BB rushes back
--BB never heals completely
--BB is hobbled in the play-offs
--the Steelers lose.

I propose:
--BB gets hurt
--rest BB/weather the storm
--sneak into the play-offs as a wild-card
--make a run with a healthy BB
--win #7.
Spot on! After the Giant game I would have given us a chance to run the table or maybe lose one road game down the stretch. People get a myopic vision looking at the weaknesses on their own team. This is a good team. Healthy...they could make a serious run at the title. Who is unbeatable? Really? Which team scares you in this league? Get healthy boys, hang on...make a run...shock the world....send the Steeler Nation into an apoplectic frenzy and make all the haters hate more!
