    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.

    "Not too many people have personalities like that and survive in life. I don't know how he does it."

    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.

    it's a coping mechanism:

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

    hey Shawn, hope this helps. I wish you a speedy recovery back to mental health...


    "I'm Naked!"

    So you are going about your normal routine - going to work, waiting for the bus, or just shopping at Old Navy - when you suddenly realize that you are stark naked. Dreaming that you are completely or partially naked is very common. Nudity symbolizes a variety of things depending on your real life situation.

    Becoming mortified at the realization that you are naked in public, reflects your vulnerability or feelings of shamefulness. You may be hiding something and are afraid that others can see right through you. Metaphorically, clothes are a means of concealment. Depending on the type of clothes you wear, you can hide your identity or be someone else. But without them, everything is hanging out for all to see. You are exposed and left without any defenses. Thus your naked dream may be telling you that you are trying to be something that you really are not. Or you are fearful of being ridiculed and disgraced. Such anxieties are elevated especially in situations where you are trying to impress others. Perhaps you are in a new work environment or in a new relationship. You may be expressing fears or apprehension in revealing your true feelings in such situations.

    Nudity also symbolizes being caught off guard. Finding yourself naked at work or in a classroom, suggests that you are unprepared for a project at work or school. You may be unprepared in making a well informed decision. With all eyes on you, you fear that some flaw will be brought to public attention. You fear that people will see through your true self and you will be exposed as a fraud or a phony.

    Often times, when you realize that you are naked in your dream, no one else seems to notice. Everyone else in the dream is going about their business without giving a second look at your nakedness. If this happens in your dream, then it implies that your fears are unfounded; no one will notice except you. You may be magnifying the situation and making an issue of nothing.

    If you dream that you are proud of your nakedness and show no embarrassment or shame, then it symbolizes your unrestricted freedom. You have nothing to hide and are proud of who you are. The dream is about a new sense of honesty, openness, and a carefree nature. Perhaps you are trying to get to the bare facts. Alternatively, the dream may be telling you that you are drawing the wrong kind of attention to yourself. You want to get noticed, but are going about it the wrong way.

    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.

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

    Despite all the gnashing of teeth about 'PM' shredding us, Flippy is on the record for 19-0.

    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.

    Just cause Peyton looks like he's back, doesn't mean we can't score more points, right?
