Alot of bounces are going the Steelers way this year.   I smell destiny.

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'm with you on the 0-fers man. They have to win sometime, right?

But without Palmer, I seriously don't see how they can move the ball. Fitzpatrick scrambling? We know they can't run on us.

Unless Ben throws like 5 picks that are all returned for TDs, I can't see us not winning. Might be an uninspired 21-3 snoozefest though.

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.

Opened at 11.  Amazingly, it's down to 9.5.  Guess Vegas feels that Fitzpatrick is a better option.

Remember a game a few years ago against the Titans who were held to 47 yards of TOTAL OFFENSE and they won something like 24-21?  It was either a Krodell or Tommy special, forget which.  Probably Krodell.

I think that was the Texans and it was Maddox.  Did they score 3 TDs of turnovers that day?

Yeah the Texans game with Touchdown Tommie. Check out the box though. Wow did we hand them that game on a silver platter.

Not saying an upset is impossible, but I think we'd have to giftwrap it.

Yeah, it was Texans, Titans, Oilers ...  that friggin Houston team!

Wow, look at that box!  And it was 24-6, much worse than I remembered.  31-58-326-0-2 for Tommy.   That has to be record attempts.  All 3 TDs were the result of returns.  What massive suckitude.

Did they really get off 89 plays to Houston's 47?  Doesn't seem possible.

It's an anomaly.

Looks like cheap Bengals Tickets are available to the game.

How times change. I went to the Steelers game in Cincy, the year they won the belt. It was all about NOT selling tix to Steelers fans or anyone from PA back then.

Looks like it gonna be a Cincy home game like it always used to be.

58 attemps by a Steelers QB blows my mind.   The record might be that Atlanta tie in 02', I'll have to look.

*Only 41 attemps in that Atlanta game, but 473 yards passing.  What a load of suck in general during 02' and 03' for our D.  I think those were the Tim Lewis years.
