    2012 Steelers will have first losing season since 2003

    Maybe it is just my general morass about this season, but I am starting to get a strong feeling that this is going to be the first losing season for the Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger.

    I am predicting 7-9, what say you?

    As an aside, I believe this will mostly be the case because Roethlisberger will miss 1 to 3 games with an injury.

    I say that as long as Ben Rothlisberger is healthy, it will be next to impossible for this team to have a losing record. The talent on both sides of the ball is just too good.

    Crazy, pessimistic thinking in my opinion.



    "I hate him. Everybody says I'm supposed to be polite when I talk to you all, but I hate him..." "He talks too much, he doesn't make sense, he's fat, he's sloppy, he acts like he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.

    19-0 baby. It's the only record that makes sense to me.

    It is pessimistic thinking, but not crazy. This is the same team that went 9-7 in 2009 after winning the Superbowl. I also stated that I don't think Ben can stay healthy. If he is healthy I think 9-7 or 10-6 is possible.

    As long as Ben Roethlisberger is healthy, we'll be a .500 + team.

    it's a coping mechanism:

    if you always expect the worst, you have a higher chance of being pleasantly surprised more often.

    if you always expect the best, you have a higher chance of being disappointed frequently.

    Agreed, with a healthy Ben I just don't see a losing season. Anything is possible but I see no indicators to support BigRob's opinion.
