We'll see when the time comes. Nothing is assured these days.

Nice job, Ben. But you're not fooling anybody.

It's all about the $ and nothing more.

I think the Rooney's know what they have in Ben. In the end, I'm sure a fair deal will be worked out and both parties will be happy.

Umm, no, they didn't. The Bus took a paycut late in his career when every team in the league including the Steelers knew he was past his prime and he had no choice but to take a paycut if he wanted to continue playing.

In today's NFL, it is all about the cashola. I appreciate Ben's loyalty to the team, the franchise and the fans, but when all is said and done, he's going to go for the gusto. He's earned the big money that some of his peers are getting and I'm sure the Rooneys will work out a deal with him where both sides are satisfied.

That's one of the reasons why Bus is my all-time favorite Steeler.

The vast majority of NFL players get once chance for the big payday. With how short their careers are, you can't blame them. GS should go for all he can get.
