if you had to choose one thing for the steelers to emphasize on tomorrow what would it be?(run D,pass D, establish run,pass are examples of what i mean, just dont say D say which one.)

i think the bengals want us to expect the run to get a quick lead on us so i think the pass D will be most important tomorrow.

The key to tomorrow's game will be special teams. We have sucked it up the last two games in this area.

i think to solve special teams we need to remove ricardo and add willie reid. sean morey did a good job last week but i do agree that our ST needs some repair just wait until a guy like dante hall comes around.

We need to control the field. Posession football. We cannot get in a run-and-gun contest with Cincy. Give Palmer different looks and cover the pass play well.

With D. Jackson out for the game, we need to attack Cincy's DB'S. I think it is more important to get Ben on a roll and get the passing game working early. If we can establish this part of the game then the running game will come along.

umm our secondary as always... big problem !! they better tackle tomorrow and not allow the receivers to continously get 5 yards after catch and they better be in the mood to hit.

I'd like to see everything fixed in tomorrow's game that went wrong against the Jags.

I think we need better play calling on both sides of the ball.

We need to not let Parker get pounded to a pulp--put someone else in there to help with some of the shorter runs--I think it's time we see what Najeh can do on a few plays.

Better stuff from ST. Consistently starting from the 20 yr line (and even farther back) isn't acceptable against the better teams.

DEFintely better offense--all the way around. Ben has GOT to be in top form. And he's got to have his WRs on the same page--and our O line needs to make sure Ben doesn't get sacked.

I think our defensive team needs the least amount of work but even they could stand some improvement, and if Troy's up to speed, that'll go a long way toward helping with that--no one reads 'em better! :thumbsup:

Well darn--you said ONE thing (so MANY things needs fixin' I got carried away) LOL

Hmmm. I'd have to say our total offense needs a total makover ;)

I was really hoping that I would be wrong with this assement. But as usual Coke came up with the huge bone-headed play of the game. Why he tries to catch the punts with his hands is beyond me. You would think with Cohwer being a special teams guy that he could remedy this poor execution on punt catching and overall peformance. Also Haynes didn't help matters coughing it up in a very critical point in the game.......I am going to go get trashed now!?!?!!
