FAR from definitive.

The optimism and realism are hand in hand. The Steelers win with (a healthy) Ben and don't without him. There are mountains of evidence as proof.

Big Ben has taken a beating and his time is 'winding down', but writing him (and the Steelers) off entirely seems foolish; as foolish as saying Flacco would 'never win one'.

If in five years Flacco has as many or more rings than Big Ben and the Steelers struggle to make/win in the playoffs, then we can start making bold statements.

Until then, it's too soon to put carts before horses.
