Ben has done well for us and has a few more years, but there will be life after Ben.
This^. My contention with Ben for years has been that he used to act like he was the team, and that when he retired there would be no more Steelers. Sorry, but he is just now good enough to be Bradshaw's towel boy, and the Steelers rolled on without Bradshaw. They will continue without BR.
