    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.

    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.

    I say the last time we had a first round OL pick go down with an injury, we won the effing Super Bowl.........suck it.

    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.
