I honestly hope that Clark, Troy, someone delivers a hit that leaves Chad on the turf doing that Joe Cocker arm deal when dudes get KTFO.

I think Cap'n Cedric Benson is about to find out what a real run D looks like.

We need to beat these fuckers like rented mules.

They need to leave Heinz feeling the same way BV does after a long ride.

All i'm hearing, and not even from Bengal fans, is how great the Bengals are. Unbelievable.

Interesting game so far. Troy is out, and not coming back, so the D needs to hang in there. Effing coverage team lets another go the distance. WTF?

Benson might not come back though.

Come on offense. We need some TD's.

Ben has been sacked 4 times already. Got to fix that. Maybe the no huddle? That would make too much sense to BA though.

Defense hasn't allowed any points yet. They have to keep getting after Palmer, and stuffing the run.

And 'fer fucks sake please cover the KO's.... and punts for that matter.

9-6 at half. 30 min to get to the top of the division, or fall into the thick of the WC race. Time to come out and win the fucking game. No way the Bengals sweep. Let's Go!

So last week in Denver, when they were doing to our offense what the Bengals did today, we made the switch to a no huddle and blew them out in the second half.

Today, we try the same old shit, time after time, and get nowhere.

The Bengals are a damn good team, and I don't feel as bad about this loss as the first one, but what is infuriating is that we have an option that just worked 6 days ago, and we never even gave it a shot.

The offense hasn't looked that inept since the Philly game last year.  After the progress this O-line has made throughout this season, it's pretty disappointing to see them shit the bed in the biggest game of the season.  Some of those early sacks were on Ben (and Arians for calling 7 step drops every f'ing pass play) but in the 2nd half, they were getting bitchslapped. 

Defense with Troy = You fuckers ain't going anywhere
Defense without Troy = The phrase "bend but don't break" isn't quite strong enough.

The D didn't look horrible by any means, it was just those long drives and allowing so many 3rd down conversions that killed them.  One of the worst angles I've ever seen taken by a defender by Woodley in that 3rd quarter.  The play was dead in the water and he had a major brain fart. 

I'm hoping Troy just tweaked his knee and they were taking precautions, didn't seem like he could have done any serious damage to it.

I said it after the Vikings game and I'll say it again today, it's time to try Robopunter on kickoffs.  I know kickers aren't paid to tackle anybody, but Jeff Reed is just embarrassing.  Good to see Tomlin try Wallace back there on kickoffs, I called for that last week as well.  After watching Logan, I'm starting to wonder if they have a touchback rule in the CFL.

Just a terrible game.  We'll see how the Bungles do with them being a front-runner now.  They don't have the "no respect" card to motivate them anymore.  Oh, and 2 catches for 20-something yards?  What was all that talk about a paper bag and a phone booth?  Has that tool EVER had a good game against the Steelers?

Some observations...

Matt Spaeth is a horrible blocker.  Maybe Tomlin still holds on to game tape from Spaeth's first few games as a rookie, cause he doesn't seem  to add much as a receiver any more.

Our D front 7 were overwhelmed and badly beaten by Cinc's front five.  They were pushed back 3 yards on most plays.

Our OL took a step back.  They were beaten by a no-name DL all day long.

Ben didn't help.  He overthrew receivers often.

Bruce Arians' game plan was horrible.  And it stayed the same horrible for 60 minutes.

Logan doesn't add much to the return game.  He takes it out of the EZ when he shouldn't (and is tackled before the 20 yard line) and calls for a fair catch at the 50 yard-line on a punt from the EZ. 

STs still sucks.  Cut Ratliff or place Keenan Lewis on the IR and sign Anthony Madison.  Despite all of the crap on O and D, STs was the difference in this game.

Reed is clutch at Heinz but the guy puts the team in a potential for disaster with just about every kickoff.

Stupid penalty by James Harrison.

William Gay has dropped more INTs in the last two games than Ike has all season.

AFCN is out of reach.  Playing for the wildcard.  Cinci coasts with its remaining schedule.  Tomlin should rest Troy next week against KC.

That was bad.  Guess we gotta give the Bungholes some credit, but I just don't quite feel like it yet.  Ben had some awful throws and the offense was out of synch all day.  The defense was darn good IMO.  You gotta give 'em something to play with though.  

18-12 huh.  Wow.

It's not easy to be optimistic after a performance like that and one wonders what the two Balty games hold in store, still, after the 1-2 start I'm thinking that 6-3 looks pretty good right now.  The division is nearly unattainable but the WC is wide open.

Agreed.  Something has to be done about the STs before it's too late.

Simply asinine.

Agreed.  Unless the Bungles stumble along the way.  It's certainly no longer the Steelers' decision.

You know, this is the type of game that will give Tomlin something to bitch about and the players will feel even more compelled to listen.  It can serve as a rallying point for the final 7-game stretch run.

It's an opportunity to refocus and perhaps address some contingencies with the roster.

Um ....

After watching Logan, I'm starting to wonder if they have a touchback rule in the CFL.

You can take a knee in the EZ in the CFL, but it gives the kicking team a single point.

What's with the Kordell underthrown long balls by BR? If you're sending #17 make it an overthrow or a completion.

All those long passes were just wastes. Between the sacks and batted passes, we couldn't afford to just serve up a deep tater and hope for the best.

Nice effort by Jeffy on the KO return. Just fall down and at least make the guy hurdle your fat, drunken ass.

You've got Reed and Logan trying to defend the return. That's 11 on 9 every time.

Yeah, the Logan experiment appears to be a bust.  He'd have to break off a couple for TDs to make mne even think it's been a worthwhile move.  And arrows are pointing to Reed getting run out of town on a rail.  WTF?  At least be a speed bump, mofo.  Even Keith Olberman was making fun of him in the highlights.

Reed has had a good run but his KOs and performances away from Heinz tip the scale to liability.

Today was just a disappointment of monumental proportions.  The team looked completely flat, especially on offense.  Hard to believe we couldn't bring more to the table against the division leaders (and now, most likely, the division champions). 

Props to the defense for doing more than enough to win the game and playing hard even when the offense couldn't get a first down.  And playing adequately without Troy.

I showed up to work today in my underwear, with dried vomit on my tee shirt, unshaven, and smelling vaguely of ass.  Burped up a few NyQuiltinis in the boss's face.  Sat around scratching my nits all morning.

Figured if it was good enough for the Steelers yesterday, it was good enough for me today.

Did anyone catch The Simpsons last night?  Marge bought a pair of sexy dice.  One die had an action and the other die had a body part.  Homer rolled them a few times.

1a. Lick
1b. Eyes
2a. Spank
2b. Hair
3a. Whisper into
3b. Ass

Doh!  Stupid dice.

That reminds me, I hope the Steelers get matched up with the Bengals in the playoffs.  It would be sweet to win the one that matters and watch Rosie and the Flaming Palmers mope off the field.  And I didn't see Clark put a good lick on #85.

Why does BA continue to call runs up the middle for no gain?  WTF?  Roethlisberger was shaking his head in disagreement on every single one of those plays.  How about a running play, not up the middle mid you, when inside the 10 yard line?  If I ever see BA I am personally going to kick the sh!t outta him.

If Gay and Clark could catch 20% of the pics they drop, they would have scored at least 3 more FG's yesterday.

Ben played like garbage, and so did the O-line.  Some of that is a credit to the Bengals.  They definiteyl wanted it more than the Steelers.

I wonder if Ben got some bad news about his pending court case on Friday or Saturday.  Call me crazy.
