Default Re: How many more years does Ben have left?

How many years in a Steelers uniform does he have left?

In any event, with advances in modern medicine and science he's probably good to be a starting QB in Burgh for another 5 years (accounting for injuries, roughly 4 full; of which at least 3 will be 'elite').
and as far as I'm concerned - Ben owes himself, his teammates, the org and then the fans a few really fantastic seasons - I love his skill set, but, its time to see more in terms of becoming a true master at his craft. I think he can do it but he has to want it - otherwise, I feel like we'll have 1-2 years where we truly have a shot out of the last 4 or 5.
MacReady: Beaver pics - don't think we're in much shape to do anything about this thread
Childs: Well, what do we do?
MacReady: Why don't we just . . .wait here and post for a little while longer . . . see what happens?
