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.

If you mean the player that the rest of the football world talks about, I think this is going to be Ben's breakout year, the year where he gets mentioned in the same breath as Brady, P Manning, Brees, Palmer.

The other guy who is going to break out is Heath Miller. The Steelers are a running team, but what they really are is a "take what they give us" team. Once the run is established, look for the passing game to put up big points in the second quarter and right after halftime, and to keep those drives alive in the third and fourth quarters. We'll see more grind-the-clock drives ending in points rather than punts this year, and I think that Miller is going to be a big part of that; he's a guy who can't be covered by a linebacker. 3rd and long won't be a 5 yard run and a punt, it will be a 7 yard pass over the middle and chains moving.

(edited to change Bledsoe to Brees.)

The same breath as Bledsoe?! Hope he has a better season than that :)

I also expect big things from Heath Miller - the 4 games Ben missed last season slowed down the interplay of Ben and Miller. The passes to Miller early in the Colts game were a big key to that victory - looking for more of the same this season.
