[QUOTE=papillon;582989]A win for the fans and the FO and a loss for Ben financially if he takes a pay cut. I don't see why he would do that, business is business and he's worth every penny, IMO.
I get it Pap but disagree with you. With the way Ben play's the game his BEST days are behind him I think. He can still have very good days but is also one major hit from the end. Ben has been a gamble from day 1. It has worked out for both parties very well up till now. Him and his kids SHOULD be set for life if he has 1/8 of a brain! Hedging your bet as the FO and getting Ben for 4 more years or more maybe at a home town discount is a major win for the Steelers I think. No one player is bigger then the team remember. But I will take a declining Ben and gamble on getting to another super bowl before he hangs it up or walks/carted off the field. The way the Steelers handle Ben will be interesting. Some old players are sent walking. Some stick around maybe for to long.
Pappy, that's probably what James Harrison thought...
