More to come shortly. Just wanted to get this up and going so we can use a new thread to vent in instead of letting unnecessary emotions by trolls get the best of some of us.

Oh, before I forget, let's not forget -



Make 'em pay for it boys! Twisted Evil



LETS GO STEELERS!

On the surface this looks like it could b a struggle, but the Bengals only really have one win over a quality opponent (vs Buffalo). Other than that they have beaten Browns, Colts, Seahawks, Jaguars and Titans. I know a wins a win but its not like the Bengals are exactly ringing up wins over the Packers.
I think if the Steelers are focused they should be fine. Plus with the buy looming they will want to head into the week on a role winning 5 of 6 and sitting 7-3 in the division.

You can't apologize for your schedule. You play who you play and are expected to win.

Bengals have looked decent.

I expect us to win.

24-13 (bengals get a garbage time td)

Didn't you just describe the Steelers season so far in a nutshell? We have one win over a quality opponent(vs. New England). Other than that we have beaten Seahawks, Colts, Jaquars, Titans and Cardinals.

Not like we are racking up wins over the Packers either.

If this team is as good as it CAN be...we should run the table the rest of the season. NO EXCUSES!!

If we put Ike on Green, use disguises and use a lot of blitzes, then I think we can stop them on offense. After all, this is a rookie QB we're talking about. They do not have have an excellent secondary player except for Leon Hall. The Ravens did well against our WR's because they have Ed Reed, but the Bengals don't have that. I think we can play a similar style as the Patriots game and even throw some deep balls against them, as Hall isn't one of the fastest CB's, nor is Clements.

Cincy is in the top 10 defensively in every yardage category. They are giving up just over 300(4th) total yards and 216(10th) passing and 85(2nd) rushing per game. This is going to be a tougher game than some think IMO.

I saw that. Also saw Woodley might play this week.

Good news for sure but it's tempting to sit him this game, even if he is feeling a little better, with the bye the following week just to make sure he doesn't aggravate it or possibly make it worse.

Woodley and Farrior are both tentative.

Cinci's OL has been solid so far this season, Daltons sack % is 4.5, It'll be interesting to see how the Pit pass rush does against them considering the injuries had. If Harrison plays like he did this past Sunday Ill be very happy.

I think if we make the plays on the ball like we haven't really done this year the game is very winnable. Dalton may not be losing games for Cincy right now but just because his % is so low doesn't mean he won't give us the chances.

If anything, he should replace Kemo.

If they put him back in to replace Foster I will be sick, but it wont shock me considering some of the other half witted decisions made in regards to our OLine.

I like the chemistry our oline has. Doesn't make sense to change it now. You're right though, if we do make a change, then that should definitely be the one to make.

i think its a close game, PITs WRs scare me with all their speed, and our secondary is so inconsistent at times that it could be a huge mismatch. I expect both teams to struggle running the ball.

In the end i think Pit wins with a late score

CIN- 13
PIT- 17
