Dulac's Picks

Steelers at Bengals



When: 1 p.m. Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium, Cincinnati, Ohio.


Records: Steelers (3-2); Bengals (5-1).


The skinny: Cincinnati has been in first place in the AFC North for four weeks, the longest stretch the Bengals have been a division leader since 1990. And, win or lose, they will remain there, though their psyche will take an additional beating from failing to beat the Steelers at home again. The Steelers have won nine games in a row on the road, tying a club record, and always seem to thrive in situations such as this. It's a situation very similar to what they faced two weeks ago in San Diego. Plus they have Ben Roethlisberger and Hines Ward back.


Prediction: Steelers, 23-19

Im looking forward to this weeks big game myself.

Ill be rooting for the Bengals on this one for two reasons.

1. They have had the same sort of loser 'rep' the Pats had for many years and I nearly always back the underdog.

2. I alway bak the teams with the better D in the 2nd half of the season - and the more games the Steelers lose between now and the playoffs - the better the Patriots will (hopefully) be seeded.

Both of them are pretty much selfish reasons - but im really looking forward to a great game.

This game is definitely more important to the Bengals than the Steelers - to be taken as genuine SB contenders they have to beat top caliber teams like Pittsburgh at home.

Cheers

This game reminds me so much of the bolts game. They put so much stock into that monday nite game... biggest game in years, first MNF in 9 years, playing a playoff caliber team, :blah: and we still won.. so here's to same result, and to the bengals realizing they still have a ways to go.. :cheers:

9 road game wins in a row, and #10 on its way...

I.C. Lights

Hey Rotorhead, I'm there too. Looks like our D is playing really well (6 pts mostly courtesy of refs) but the offense is a little slow.

Rotorhead
10-23-2005, 01:26 PM
How are we tending to cover CJohnson? Looks like we are stopping the running game and maybe the time of possession?

Livinginthe past
10-23-2005, 01:28 PM
Your D is doing ok-ish plenty of yards in the air and on the ground for Cincy - but your D is stepping it up nice in the red zone.

The Bus is rumbling along nicely - I think there are some yards to be hard on the weak interior of the Bengals.

Miller is having a nice game also.

BurghThing
10-23-2005, 01:28 PM
And I love how Cincy have only had one flag, um yeah, the refs are calling this one straight :rolleyes:

Well we are heading into half with a lead so that is good.

Livinginthe past
10-23-2005, 01:30 PM
Ike taylor is doing a nice job so far - I believe he is getting a little help - the Steelers are playing very soft coverage.

The D-Line is starting to get a little pressure on carson - he is playing well so far - but he looks like he might be tempted to make something happen and throw one up from grabs...maybe in the 2nd half.....

Rotorhead

Stupid AFN is not showing this game, showing the SD/Philly game instead ggrrrr

I.C. Lights
10-23-2005, 01:32 PM
Well there's nothing we can do about the refs being after us except be more careful about things that would ordinarily be marginal calls. Those penalties killed our last drive and allowed Cincy to get past midfield unscathed. We get the ball first in the 2d half...so time to start off with a score

Rotorhead

Do we get possesion after the half? Doh, 60sec rule :bouncy: waiting, waiting, wait for it, wait for it . . . now

SteelrsRck
10-23-2005, 01:33 PM
a lead at anytime is good :blurp:

Millers looks real good wish we can get ward into it more though as long as he can keep his cool hes got what 2 catches so far

i hate how the announcers keep saying we should have 8 men in the box instead of 7 to stop the run.They have a good front line and its going to be tough to stop or even pressure palmer.he already has 21 attempts in the first half

Atlanta Dan
10-23-2005, 01:40 PM
Coach K at Duke once described a player's intensity as a fire that could heat the house or burn it down; that is where Cowher is at with this team's attitude if it does not get under control.

My guess is there is a lot of trash talking going on and the refs are going to throw flags when anything chippy takes place. Too bad Taylor got baited by Johnson; as for Hines Ward, he was begging for a flag on the taunting call.

I laughed at the Ravens being out of control in the Lions game several weeks ago; the Steelers look no more in control so far and, with the calls on Troy the last several weeks, this team better watch out if the refs decide they need to get smacked.

Big possession to start the 2nd half.

You can bet Cowher will say, or spittle and froth, something about staying under control during the half, that should hopefully take care of that.

Its hard to define what makes an elite team....thats why the patriots have struggled to get recognition for the first few years of their current run.

The Steelers are the same...no massive names...but when a play needs to be made...one of the guys in black and gold will find a way to make it - a tipped pass...a nice catch..a key block...whatever..they just get it done.

This is why I thought the Steelers would win this game.......

Big Ben wont get the respect he deserves until he pulls Pittsburgh out of a deep hole by throwing the ball against decent opposition.

He must be one of the hardest QB's to sack - he is so slippery its untrue - nice power in the arm - one minus point - he resorts to the scramble a little early sometimes...but that will come with experience...its only his 2nd year after all.

By the way, on the Hines TD drop, there was an illegal contact penalty on the Bungles that gave us a first down.

Big Ben wont get the respect he deserves until he pulls Pittsburgh out of a deep hole by throwing the ball against decent opposition.

He must be one of the hardest QB's to sack - he is so slippery its untrue - nice power in the arm - one minus point - he resorts to the scramble a little early sometimes...but that will come with experience...its only his 2nd year after all.


Yeah, he led a pretty solid rally last year, but it was against a crappy team...so you're probably right. I guess that's a fair standard for judging the great qbs because they can all do that.

they should put the Bus in and just let him pound it..
the defense has to be tired.

We are already ahead no sence in risking injury just let haynes run it out he seems to be doing good against a depleted bengals defense

The Steelers have this one in the bag - the Bengal house is built on shaky foundations...and the Steelers big bad wolf just came and blew it down.

I expect the Bengals might go into a freefall after this....who they got next week?

In Other news...the Chargers are winning against the eagles 14-10...this is despite Tomlinson running for -6yds on 10 carries.

Brees is doing enough in the air....this Charger D may be on of the better units in the league....

It will be interesting to see if they self destruct now. A couple of us posted on the "how important" thread that this game matters because, if we win now, the Bengals will take care of themselves and the division will be ours.

Thats exactly right Fast Wille - all the talking heads will tell you how teams like the Bengals 'aren't to blame' for their weak schedule....but who is blaming anyone?


All we are saying is that they aren't as good as the hype or their record.

Here are some more crazy -west coast stats for y'all.

In the Chargers game there have been only 24 points scored in 3 quarters yet the the total pass to run count is 22 runs to 78 passes...that my friends is pass wacky!

The Eagles have badly handicapped themselves with this style of play - they need a running back capabale of grinding out the hard yards - otherwise they are just another NFC fraud who is going to get beat up by the AFC champion this year again..if they get that far....

Its no big deal - as far as the game goes the final score is 27-6 any further scores are garbage time scores.

Nice job by the Steelers - it will be an interesting race to see how the seedings set up towards the end of the season.
