It is pretty stupid when a guy scores 2 TD's in the first game and some talking head says "He's on pace for 32 TD's." But now that we have reached the midway point of the season, you have a large enough sample of games played to give you a reasonable barometer for where guys could wind up at the end of the year if they simply replicate their first half performance in the second half of the season (plus it is the easiest time to do this after 8 games since the only math you have to understand is how to multiply by two).
Anyway, here are the "on pace for" projections for various members of the team:
Ben Roethlisberger is on pace for 370-524 for 4590 yards, 28 TD's and 14 INT's.
Hines Ward is on pace for 98 catches for 1292 yards and 8 TD's.
Santonio Holmes is on pace for 72 catches for 1180 yards and 2 TD's.
Mike Wallace is on pace for 50 catches for 874 yards and 6 TD's.
Heath Miller is on pace for 86 catches for 742 yards and 8 TD's.
Rashard Mendenhall is on pace for 200 carries for 1146 yards and 8 TD's.
James Harrison is on pace for 96 tackles (82 solo) with 16 sacks and 8 forced fumbles.
The team is on pace for a 12-4 record (8-0 at home and 4-4 on the road) with 390 points for and 278 points against.
If Hines Ward gets 354 more receiving yards (44.25 per game), if Santonio Holmes gets 410 more receiving yards (51.25 per game), if Mike Wallace gets 563 more receiving yards (70.375 per game), if Heath Miller gets 629 more receiving yards (78.625 per game), and if Rashard Mendenhall gets 427 more rushing yards (53.375 per game), then you'd have a team with four 1000 yard receivers and a 1000 yard running back. It looks like Hines, Santonio, and Rashard should get there, and Wallace and Heath have outside shots.
