    End of next season wouldn't be shocking. Midseason would be. That won't happen.

    Why would anyone give Deion any cred? What is he basing it on, or anyone that seems to even possibly think Ben would retire before the season is over?

    Geez, How many QBs that have HOF written in their future is going to quit? None!

    And just bc of one bad game that showed other offensive, defensive players and coaches who simply had a crappy game plan and adjustments?

    Ben's too much of a competitor.

    That non tackling POS said today that he was right about Ben, didn’t care what the Steelers thought, and then insinuated that the Steelers would use these losses to fire Tomlin but made it sound like he didn’t deserve that. I’m guessing he was trying to make it a racial thing.

    Wasn’t Ben going to retire after that terrible regular season loss vs Jacksonville in 2017? The “Ben is done” talk was all the rage back then too.

    Everybody scoffed at me when I begged the
    Steelers to not handcuff themselves with big contract
    to an aging player that could go south in a heartbeat.
    Well we maybe watching this play out for the next two years.
    ala Eli Manning. We have paid Ben well over 200 miliion
    for his career Pre extension. Do you guys like the ROI?

    Why would he give back millions of dollars to retire? He's 37 Not 73. :cool:

    Guess we will see how the MRI results pan out. His 2 game body of work this season is not trending high. It's a concern. All the while other QB's are lighting it up. He is stiff as a board. Father time has not been good to him. He looks beaten. I don't believe he will retire this season unless it's a Bradshaw type injury.
