    If he is out for a good portion of what is left of this smoldering pile-of-**** season from hell... ...And the ultimate goal is always a Superbowl... ...Are you rooting for a high draft pick? I mean, can you imagine this team with another franchise cornerstone?

    I will withhold what my opinion is until I hear yours.

    I want the playoffs of course. Get in and anything can happen. But, if we do miss the playoffs, I hope we lose every game and get a high pick. But I don't want us to lose just to get a high pick, I'd rather win and make the playoffs

    Never hate losing but I say tank. No Ben no chance. Of course if Ben will be back soon we still have a shot

    For some reason, I don't think the injury is that bad... I hope he's back next week

    No, I'm rooting for a wildcard berth and for Landry Jones to prove he's a capable backup and possible successor to Ben.

    You always go for wins. Tanking just sets a bad precedent. Just one of those 'nothing is going right' seasons that we have once in a while.

    I can't root for them to lose, and besides at this point they are probably already out of the running for the elite draft picks at the very top.

    That last pass shows how it can be done with Landry. Just get it to the playmakers and let them do the rest.

    Always root for the win. If you root to tank the season, you're no better than a Charger fan.

    With our weapons, we could win with a "game manager'.

    Besides, go back and check out all of those teams the last couple of decades that typically pick near the top of the draft. Most of them have a legacy of losing.

    Win every game. This is the NFL, you play to win the game. Every game. No matter what.

    Tanking would be a disgrace to the fans, the players, and the entire organization as a whole. I HATE the "pout because things haven't gone out way" mentality. It's weak. It would do more damage to mental make up of this team than any top 10 pick could ever make up for.

    I always root for the win, draft picks are no sure thing. Look who is left Clowns twice, Bunholes and Gayvens. I don't want to lose to them anytime, I don't give a crap about a draft pick!!!!!!

    I don't care what the situation at QB is, I can not, and will NEVER root for the Steelers to lose a game no matter what kind of draft pick it means. We aren't the Colts. We're the PITTSBURGH STEELERS! We can't pull a suck for Luck IMO.

    Vick will never be cut while Ben is out, and while his homie Tomlin is here.

    Losing does nothing for this team. Even if you get a high pick, he can turn out to be a bust. At least you get to see how good your depth is. Let them play to win and win as much as you can.
