Bengals are done.  We get them after the bye, but I hope we don't sleep on them.  They took the G-men to overtime and came close to being the second team to upset the Cowgirls in 2 weeks.  We should handle them, but with injuries, a divisional matchup, them being generally pissy...  Let's come out and belt 'em in the face right off.

As Oat mentioned the other day, I'm not too crazy about Pittsburgh facing a winless Cincy team.  Hopefully they can pull one out of their ass @ NYJ this week.

We can't afford to blow this game.  We really need to go 6-0 in the division and hope to sneak one by the NFCE in order to make playoffs. 

I like where we are right now, 4-1 with the bye week to get people healthy.  But if we lose to the Been-gals, that Giants/Skins/Colts/Chargers stretch is going to look a lot nastier.

Cincy has been better at clogging the middle last two games.   I'm a fan of spreading them out the first two drives or so and attacking the perimeter.  Then start getting the running game going to bleed the clock.

I'm a little concerned about our secondary in this game.  Need Woodley and Harrison to attack that O-line with pressure.  Glad to have Snacks and Keisel back hopefully, even though I though Hoke and Eason/Kirshcke have played pretty good.

I'm suddenly very nervous about this game ---  A trap game.  I hope the Steelers are cautios and prepared.

I'm hoping for Fitzpatrick; but you know Carson wouldn't miss this one.

Did I mention I hate player 0-fer teams?

Didn't dare touch that Rams/Skins game this week in Last Man Standing. I'm just too chicken shit when I see a winless team on the schedule.

We should pound them, but there was that game against the Texans...and the Raiders.

I've been able to (been forced to) watch the Bengals alot the last few weeks, with them playing the Giants and Jets.  Their running backs are soft, and everyone else on offense seems to be just mailing it in, with the exception of Douchemanzadeh and either a gimpy Palmer or an overmatched Fitzpatrick.  Defensively, they seem to be trying to return to that poaching style that served them well the one year they were actually good.  Then again, it's not like Eli or Favre have histories of taking care of the ball.

Yes, we need to not look past this one.  But talent, execution, and coaching-wise, we ought to be 8 point favorites here, and justifiably so.

I hope it's only 8 pt favorites.  No double digit favorite has covered so far this season and I hate picking against the Steelers.

The 'close' nature of the last few Steeler wins, plus Cincy's seemingly improved play, plus the obligatory 3 points for the home team, will mean this is single digits IMO.

At Heinz Field, OTOH, we might have been 11 or 12 point faves coming off the bye.
