    Ben Predictions

    Perhaps someone who can set up a poll with the following:

    1. Ben retires
    2. Ben takes a partial restructure but not enough (about $10M)
    3. Ben does the team right and takes a big enough cut (greater than $20M)
    4. The team decides to move on without Ben and cuts him
    Taking pride in the fact that I'm right so often and he is wrong so often, that Steel Maniac has to have me on "Ignore"

    Ben will take whatever cut is required to return. It will be up to management on whether he returns or not.

    I hope they word it just the way you said it Chuck; Time for management to grow a pair and dictate to him what the terms are.
    From the 2010-2020 season, (A 10 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks.

    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the playoffs in the 70ís...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches

    Can't resist making everything a negative.

    I think Ben gets a nice haircut to his paycheck and comes back for one more year.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    He is going to reduce his cap to fthe min, but no way he leaves money off...he would be stupid, and the Steelers and NFL owners just show greed!

    So you advocate letting multiple good players leave, becoming a weaker team with poorer performance?

    Its no more greed for the "Steelers and NFL owners" to control expenses than it is for any business to do layoffs, close unprofitable operations, etc. The greedy Steelers and NFL have given Ben and his family multi-generational wealth. So who is greedy?

    I’m confused here.
    So the owners are greedy because they will force Ben to take less or is Ben greedy for not giving money back from the contract that the organization offered?
    Update:
    In the last decade, 25% of the league has won a super bowl(the Steelers aren't one of them) and now 50% have as many or more playoff wins as the Steelers.
