I still think he should be around for the next 5 seasons or more, but the team window on getting to another Super Bowl is closing. All the great supporting cast is getting old and the young guys arent that special so far.
It doesn't matter that he wasn't that great IN two of the Super Bowls. Without him and his play in the regular season and playoffs....the Steelers wouldn't have even sniffed those Super Bowls. Big Ben is the man. He is elite. He is the central piece to every Super Bowl trip in his era and his success will determine whether we get another one or not. FACT.
