    Is it time to accept some difficult facts?

    Has the time come for Steeler fans to face some ugly realities?

    Has the great Steelers resurgence hit a wall?

    Is Dick Le Beau the latest in the long line of "great guys we owe a few extra years to"?

    Is Todd Haley Ben's biggest fear?

    Is this the year we throw away because of age on defense?

    Is this going to be a colossal shame of "what the offense could have been"?

    Is this going to be a colossal shame of "what we could have done with this offense if we had a defense"?

    I DON'T THINK SO!

    Think about what we've witnessed so far. Yes Haley is an idiot but Ben is mentally tough enough to handle him, and yes we lost to the Raiders for God sake but we always lose to the Raiders, and yes we are 1-2 while Cinci and Baltimore are 1 1/2 games ahead of us and look pretty good..... but it's early.

    We should be getting key players back who, despite age and diminished skills, are integral to the operation of the defense.

    Despite the fact that I am not a huge fan of Mendenhall he will provide another weapon which will allow the offense to operate at another level.

    And I think it's fair to say that we all know the defense is better than they have looked so it's just a matter of getting some things to gel and I think this can be a 11-5 team and still win the division.

    This week we entertain a team who is schizophrenic and has a mental midget, turnover machine, bad decision making, over-rated, fragile, inaccurate passer running the offense. This could be exactly what the doctor ordered to get this season off and running!

    THAT'S MY STORY AND I'M STICKING TO IT!

    Our "tough years" are going to be the first four or five after Ben retires.

    Right now we still have time to turn this season around. I'd rather get off to a rough start and then get on track, than start off tough and fall apart in the post season. Getting Troy, Harrison, and Mendy back this week will give us a good indication of how this team could look the rest of the year (health permitting).

    It's a big week coming up, even if guys coming back aren't 100% healthy their impact should be significant if for no other reason than emotion.


    It's like they always say you're never as good as you think you are or as bad as they say you are.

    I'm not sure I get the Haley is an idiot thing either.

    Hopefully we get a new QB in to groom before Ben is done.. Batch and Leftwich will be like 60 by the time Ben is done.

    Well have to give up on those vets then right. by 60 right?

    No worries. If they cn sit upright on the bench and fog a mirror, they can ride along.

    I think the Steelers offense has been amazing so far this season, through the passing game that is.

    Seriously? The guy simply can't play well with others and it's only a matter of time before he blows up at Ben when Ben continues to ignore him. He has a track record that can't be ignored. The question is, can the Steelers organization keep him in check?
