    Uh, if he can't play for six weeks, then let's not treat the playoffs like a foregone conclusion, OK?

    Exactly.

    On the bright side, there's a good chance we move up into the top half of the draft...

    Honestly, at this point, I'm prepared for the Steelers not to play in January. Two of their top three draft picks are on IR, and nine different starters have missed at least one game this season. The 2012 Steelers are basically the 2011 Bears: a playoff-caliber team wrecked by serious injuries to key players.

    Part of me would actually prefer that they not make the playoffs simply because it'd improve their draft position during an off-season in which there's bound to be more turnover on defense. There's plenty of great talent even in the mid-teens. (Remember that the Steelers drafted Troy Polamalu at #16.)

    Higher draft position would enable a more thorough reloading of the defense, and a healthy David DeCastro and Sean Spence should make the Steelers better on both sides of the ball in 2013.

    I always want them in the play offs because any team can catch "lightning in the bottle" for 5 weeks (see the Giants recent Super Bowl runs). However, I do agree with the general tenor of your comments that this is major hill to climb in front of us. I really don't expect to see Ben back until the play off if at all. I'm not sure Leftwich can win 4 of the next 7 games but we will find out if there is any hope this Sunday night.

    As far as Spence, I'm far less optimistic than you are. Multiple ligaments is a real severe injury. If he can ever come back with the abilities he had before the injury I think it won't be until 2014.

    In the past, I would have agreed with you. He's now family-man-Ben and won't be as reckless with his life.

    His past injuries were football threatening not life threatening. They won't rush him back until he is 100% healed.

    You all are nuts, the Steelers are 6-3 and have been playing with injuries to key components of this team for the past 2 years. This isn't new to them and while you may think that Mike Tomlin's creed of "next man up" is hyperbole this team has been winning games with this mentality. I will be completely shocked to see this team fail to make the playoffs with or without Ben. Other teams have to win a lot of games to knock the Steelers out of the playoffs at this point. The Steelers are two games up in the loss column to the #7 ranked team in the AFC.

    Geesh, man, didn't any of you play any sport and have to get through a little adversity to win games? Moving up in the draft, screw the draft it will be there in April, it's now the middle of November and the Steelers are in the thick of the hunt. Good God folks, man up a little (sorry to all the ladies that participate on the board) and cheer for the team, they will be in the playoffs.

    LOL-

    I couldn't agree more. No, many of them on here just play that Wii or Playstation Football Game and think they know it all.

    Isn't the #7 seed like 4-5? Anyway, Ben will be back sooner rather than later.. We all gonna take bets on this now? I say 2-3 weeks. Although, I would rather him not play in the Away Ravens game on that surface. So, maybe he waits until the week after the 2nd Ravens game??
