If we win a SB or at least an AFC Championship in the next 2 years then I think he will play a few seasons after that. If we miss the playoffs the next couple of years or continue to have a low ranked offense that doesn't allow us to advance past the WC round, then I think he will just quit and spend a few extra years with his family.
this - the window wasn't as big as it was a 2-3 seasons ago, that is for sure

I remember seeing him standing on the podium after they won XLIII and thinking "This son of a bitch is gonna pass Bradshaw and get 5 rings"

Now, I'm just hoping for 1 more. I really don't see more than 4-5 seasons at this rate and unfortunately, I think we'll see 1-2 more 8-8, 9-7, or one and dones mixed in there. I'm hoping the FO realizes their chances of winning another 1 are getting smaller by the half season.

Yup. We fucking blew it with SB 45, and I think we only can get 1 more. I do think we will get it though.

If we turn it around and have a strong season next year, with some team leaders stepping up, we could win 2 more rings with Ben. But we need some players to take control of the locker room and make some people accountable.

I said on the day that BB was drafted that he'd take the Steelers to six SuperBowls, winning five of them. And, I'm sticking to it.

If we continue to see him injured every season the way we have the past couple, I expect he'll have 2 more decent seasons, then drop into the shitter due to being too banged up to recover. If we keep him healthy, he could have 5 or 6 more good to great seasons.

Here we go with this bullshit again. The guy was 241 at his draft years combine. Reportedly he reached 260 at the end of last season, and was down 21 pounds for this year, according to an interview after training camp. That would actually put him lighter than his rookie year, which is pretty damned good for a guy his age who was suffering ankle injuries. Ben's weight is fine.

As much as I hate to say it, Ben is pretty much washed up. A few years back Ben was on the cusp of being a elite QB in this league even in the top five. Now he is lingering around 20. As far blaming injuries for his performance, it doesn't really matter, it is what it is. Besides, most of his injureies are brought on by his own stupidity and Stubbornness. We got two SB's with him behind center and I am gratefull for that. Take off the rose colored glasses and face reality. the SB window with this team has closed!

Right. That's why he was in the thick of the NFL MVP discussion at midseason.
