Default The Eternal Optimism Thread

I tend to be a glass half full gal and with the latest news on Benny, I thought it might be the right time for all of us eternal optimists to come together. I dont think he will miss 3 games hell I dont rhink he will miss 2. And for 2 reasons.
1. Benny is tough. If he can survive a New Yorker then im sure appendicitis is nothing plua Benny has amazing healing powers (although I do wonder where his guardian angel was on this one?)!
2. The Steelers have 11 days off between week 1 and 2.

So everyone just chill. Our boys wll be fine without Benny. Last time I checked we still have a kick ass defense and Charlie Batch has looked good. It will all work out in the end. The steelers will still go 13-3 and win the super bowl. Just remeber that every thing happens for a reason and that which does not kill tou only makes you stronger!!!!!

WHO RIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

I think he was taking advice from not only aikman and elway on how to handle pressure after a superbowl ... but he also spent a weekend at the x-men mutant mansion and got a good talk in with wolverine about how to REALLY heal fast

We showed last season that you don't neccessarily have to win 14 or 15 games to go all the way. This will just add to the legend and lore that everyone will talk about after SB XLI.

I`ll be honest, I don`t know why we need a pep talk already? There is no reason to alarm anyway. Ben is a big piece to a championship puzzle, I agree. But there are alot of other key pieces that will lead us to victories. Batck kicked some major butt against the brownies last year before halftime when they realized he had a broken bone. We have puzzle pieces like Parker, and Porter, Polumula and Ike, We have Miller and Wilson, Farrior and Foote. If that doesnt work we have Reed.

Me thinks too many people have been reading so many rival forums they are starting to doubt we really WON the Super Bowl!!!!!!!!! Look in the mirror, smack yoursselves upside the head once or twice and repeat................... We are the Pittsburgh Steelers........WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!!!!!!!!
