    Yeah..it is time to win now. We need to settle that RB position once and for all. Balance out the offense and take pressure off of Ben.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Ben is 31. How old is Brady and Manning? How about Breees? They seem to be a lot older than Ben and are still playing well.

    True, but they are upright a lot more than Ben. He could definitely be effective for more than 4 years but only if they get that protection figured out. If he continues to run for his life, even four more years is a pipe dream.

    I agree, but Ben has taken a far worse punishment than the ones that you mentioned. His body won't withstand another 6-8 seasons. Brady had the knee issue, Manning the neck and Brees seems to be upright a lot and hardly ever injured. You can blame Ben for his gameplay, but he has not really had a good line in a number of years.

    If he'd learn to throw the ball away he could play until 70! lol

    I tend to be a little more optimistic regarding Ben's time left. Factoring in improvement in the O-line, and SOME type of running game, I say Ben plays anywhere from 6-8 more seasons.
