Just got the text alert from KDKA and Willie is out this week. Looks like Mewelde and Gary are gonna run right through that defense.

I actually don't mind this very much. At least maybe it will give the coaching staff another week to realize that once we start playing good teams again, there are better gameplans than handing the ball off to Parker EVERY TIME even when he's getting stuffed for no gain.

The Bungals actually have a decent pass D (well under 200 yards per game AVG) but since the run D is very questionable they still have allowed over a TD per game on average. I can easily see Moore reaching 100 yards, heck Bam Morris from penal role call 9856378 could run for 100 yards on this D.

I don't think this is bad at all. Moore will have a good game, and it will give Willie more time to heal up completely. With their defense the way it is, why risk it.

Their pass D is ranked 4th because their rush D is ranked almost last (28th), giving up 156.8 yds per game. There's no need to throw the ball. :chuckle:

Willie should sit out until he is 100%........The backups are doing fine right now so that should tell Willie to get well for the playoffs.

Marvel Smith is out too according to the P-G. The 6.9million dollar man gets to start.

Be careful what you wish for.

Won't be a problem. Probably the best outcome to let him heal up because the tough part of our schedule is still to come.

parker out is not really a big loss. moore and russell will do just as good.

the steelers better not underestimate the bengals. the steelers are known for playing-down against poor teams. they could also be looking to next week against the giants.

please use russell. like, a lot

I want to see what this kid's got

and who knows? maybe if he has a great game the bungles may consider trading for him in the future....that would totally ruin his career though

i would rather trade mendenhall. i am certain there are teams dumb enough to give a 1st or 2nd rounder for him.

hopefully moore gets over 100 yrds on the ground a td... or more than 1 td would be nice

I'm not buying all this "let's just run the ball down their throats" talk. The Bengals, based on DVOA, are actually better against the run than against the pass (15th vs. 21st), while on offense we're better passing than running (20th vs. 26).

It's interesting that, statistically, the Bengals defense has actually played better than our offense, and yet many are expecting us to light up the scoreboard and blow them out.

I think we can blow them out if we attack them aggressively through the air and the defense makes some big plays, but it's definitely not gonna' happen if we just try to man-up and run it down their throats.

I'm buying it! Especially with Mewelde Moore on my FFL team. :chuckle:

Doesn't count because we were only ahead by 3 at halftime. We absolutely suck. :coffee:
