but the Steelers were simply outplayed today. Gotta give props to Cincy and them sticking with their game plan. They were forcing Ben to throw underneath and he simply would not do it. He was just a bit off with throws and reads today. 3rd and short conversions killed any offensive momentum. Red zone play calling and decision making was atrocious.

Cincy played it smart and conservative on offense. A lot of max protect. Clark dropped a sure INT that may have resulted in a huge momentum swing.

The boys need to regroup and bang out KC and then deliver the stake through the playoff hearts of Bmore.

No doubt about it, the sooner B'more has nothing to play for, the better.

I despise the idea of admitting this, but the Bengal defense actually impressed me a lot today.  Now, when you know the formations and exactly where the play is going, it's not too hard.  However, they have some really solid cover guys and their dline/LBs played much better than I have ever seen a Bengals team play.

It's all a part of being "The New Bengals." You know, the ones who run routes Phil Simms has never seen in the NFL before, even if Chad Johnson drops the pass. Fuck the Bungals. They will come back to Earth soon. They played well on defense yesterday, and the O-Line looked terrible, and props to them for that. Still a long way to go, and only 2 games out. Let's get Troy back healthy, run some no huddle, and get on a roll again.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm not drinking the grape koolaid mix or anything.  I just thought they'd start falling apart earlier than they have.  As in, yesterday.

The fact that they are winning and OchoStinko is still whining and looking like someone pissed in his corn flakes tells me that they're not long for the territory.

Chicken: The Bengals D played a stout game.   They're winning, as Ditka notes, playing Steeler football (D, run game).

Egg: Our offense didn't bother to show up.  Ben and Wallace were out of synch.  Another fine fuckup of a script from BA, who couldn't possibly consider establishing a running game, or running RM anywhere but into the DTs.  It seemed like we kept looking for kill shots rather than moving the chains. 

And, after all that, we still would have won if we had special teams that weren't fucking whores.

I think it was Otis who pointed out that the KO coverage teams are 9 on 11 with Logan and Reed.  I never noticed that Logan was on the coverage teams.  WTF is up with that!?  What is Logan's potential there, speed bump?  You mean to tell me that there's not one other backup on the roster who can't displace Logan on the coverage teams?  Really?

Actually, it's more like roadkill.  Every time I see him, he's getting flattened to the turf.  Doesn't help much to get there in a hurry if you end up face-down in the turf.

And I'm much more comfortable with Wallace and Moore back there in the return game.

Well, kickers are always useless, so it's 10 on 11 for every team.  Logan does get down the field fast.  Not sure he's ever done anything, but you see him down there as one of the first guys. 

I see it as more a scheme issue.  We've changed out various players.  Ligashesky sucked in St. Lou and he sucks here.  We have good athletes on this squad, I doubt very much that they just forget to show up every single week on teams.

ST are a glaring weakness and even with the return of Sepulveda and addition of Logan, they still suck. IMO, it would be nice if the ST coach's head would roll. This may also send a message to Bruce Arians that Tomlin won't accept shittiness and further, will fire non-contributors and espionage (sp?) artists mid-season.

BTW, I think I've seen Logan make quite a few tackles on coverage teams this season.

Not exactly the same record, but WVU's 7-3 looks as shitty or shittier.

On another note, I know he's a board favorite, but is it now OK with y2joyce that we lost to Cincinnati...and Chicago earlier in the year, or are we just a bunch of "whiny bitches" who don't know what we're talking about? I hope he's right and we "see him in the playoffs."

I'll say this much: once it was clear to me that the ball wasn't going to roll out of bounds I thought that could Reed's best kickoff of the year. Sure enough it was just another trip to the house. What looked so promisingly unique broke down to just another average damn-near-every-Sunday stroll through the Steelers cover team.

Didn't Tampa Bay go like 30 years without one of those? Three on us in four weeks? It's almost a miracle we had a shitty first-half offensive effort up in Denver because with another kickoff or two Eddie Royal was bound to royally violate our lane intergrity and put up some points.

I am counting 12 KO return TDs leaguewide in 2009. Three against the Steez. Holy high hell upon high. Good heavens. Isn't that like a quarter of the TDs in the league? If our kick coverage team took one of those social networking quizzes to see which Spaceballs character they "were" it most undoubtedly without a doubt would be that of Barf. What the hell are you tal...I mean Why? you ask? Because we tackle like John Candy.

I think Vince Lombardi said it best: "What the hells goin' on out they-aaaarh?" It sucks.

If Bob Ligashesky took a which movie character quiz was himself he would be Forrest Gump. Without all that there football acumen. Read: a fuckin retard muttering about how 'shit happens'. The guy has stunk wherever he has been. Look it up. If there is gonna be professional accountability in the Steelers organization then this schmo has got to go.

Why of course it's an ok loss. Cincy is top 5 in all the country and the mountaineers battled hard.

Er, you meant the real team 'round these parts?

Not sure what you're going for, like Sunday wasn't miserable for me, but I fail to see what last Sunday's loss has to do with any comments I'd made when the Steelers were 1-2 and "not going anywhere this year.......cuz i says so!" threads.

If you whiny bitches wanna whine what can I do about it? Nothing but take it in stride and hope for the playoffs. If you're asking permission for the Steelers fans to vent why and by, as board favorite, yes I grant you that inalienable right. What the hell do I care? I was just pointing out how retarded it sounded to deem the Steelers as failures after losing in week 3. The Steelers arent done. Not then. Not now.

The Bengals have played their asses off. Due all that credit. Etc. Etc. There's still a ton of football left to be played. Theyre 7-2 and the Steelers are at 6-3. I would call it foolish to cancel the rest of the season.

Steelers in the playoffs. Again. And I'd so much relish the opportunity to gain revenge at Cincy in the playoffs that I'd ship a batch of.....gofuckyourself to that WR they have that never does shit when we play. The one with the mohawk? Who has never won anything? The one who had his fronts removed by Anthony Smith and tried to beat up his coach last time we were ending his playoff season?

Most depressing walk out of the stadium I've endured at the new place. Lots of whiny bitches in attendance, as per usual. But honestly walking out there from the would-be cheap seats amongst the depressed, drunken masses it's the first time I can remember feeling cheated. Like the Steelers didn't get it done and not because they were saving something. Just a terrible effort. Players. Coaches. Fans....Ligashesky... ..ah hell before I get too whiny.

All I'm saying is that you acted like a complete asshole when some people didn't like what transpired in weeks 2 and 3. And I don't recall anyone saying the Steelers were complete failures. I think the concern was more along the lines of whether the Steelers were playing well enough to win the division or at least get a WC spot.

I really take exception to you saying that Y2 acted like a complete asshole.
He spoke his mind, which is what a bunch of people do on here, including that dick Otis.

And yes, you, and many of the rest of us, are still whiny bitches.  As guilty as I am, I'm willing to say Y2 was right then and he's right now.

I'm pretty much a whiny bitch every time the Steelers lose, and I'm willing to live with that.

Sorry, but some of the talk after week three was getting a little dramatic.

Now, it's week 10.  We might have a little more reason to whine.  But, it doesn't change the fact that we still have as good a shot as anyone to get a wildcard.  And it's not inconceivable--although it is unlikely--that we could still pull out the division.

How's that for a balanced perspective?

Next time I go to a game, I'm going to meet up with Y2J and chase him and my brother in law around the parking lot.

Yeah, I probably shouldn't have mentioned y2j specifically. For that - I apologize. I'm sure, as he indicated, he doesn't like the seeing the Steelers lose or play poorly any more than the rest of us do.

That said, I do stand by the fact that the early season doubts were justified then and they're certainly justified now. And again, I don't recall anyone saying the season was over or that they were no longer Steelers fans. Rather it was frustration that the Steelers needed to win the games that, going into the season, we - and especially they - would have penciled in as "we got this." Being up in the fourth quarter and losing to two teams that have historically been much worse than the Steelers is no way make the playoffs, let alone win the division.

Now we have virtually no shot at winning the division (unless LJ derails Cincinnati) and a tremendously uphill battle just to get a WC spot. We very well could be like last year's 11-win Pats team sitting at home at the end of the regular season.

Anyway, y2j, I hope you'll accept my apology for bringin up a months-old situation.

We're currently 1st in the WC battle and with wins against Denver and SD, I think we are sitting in a pretty good spot to get a playoff birth. We have to beat Baltimore, but the rest of the games are easily winnable.

There was an article on MSN today about football helmets, and the suggestion if they went without helmets, there would less long term brain damage, etc etc.  At the end of the article, there were several posts, people responding to the article.  One of the posters was ftbalexprt1, or something pretty close to that.  The post was coherrent, non threatning, and would be classified as normal so it probably wasn't our favorite posting friend from yesteryear, but one must wonder.
