I'll give you the defense for sure, but offense? C'mon, man.
Carson Palmer > Ben Roethlisberger
Jeremi Johnson > Carey Davis
Rudi Johnson < Willie Parker
Levi Jones > Marvel Smith
Stacey Andrews < Alan Faneca
Eric Ghiaciuc > Sean Mahan
Bobbie Williams < Kendall Simmons
Willie Anderson > Willie Colon
Reggie Kelly < Heath Miller
Chad Johnson > Hines Ward
TJ Houshmandzadeh > Santonio Holmes
That's 7 Bengals and 4 Steelers.
QB - When they are at their best, your opinion on starting quarterback is laughable. Palmer = Stats. Ben = wins. Ben wins.
HB - Parker hands down
FB - Hmm... Johnson has the blocking edge over Davis, but Kreider is a top 5 pure blocking fullback EASY. Kreider beats out both of them as a blocker.
WR - Stats = Johnson. Blocking, tough catches, YAC = Hines. If you like stats and only big plays Johnson is your guy... me? I’ll take the better all around player any day. Winner = Hines.
Holmes has more upside than Douschmanzada has letters in his name. Winner = Holmes.
Tackle could go either way, Smith is a better run blocker - Don't even try and argue that point, unless you study film like I do (usually, haven't done so much this season due to bad competition) you wouldn't catch the difference. Jones is a better pass blocker by a bit, who you want depends on your offensive philosophy.
Faneca could coach the Bengals guards.
Simmons wins easy.
Mahan isn't far off, but just from an experience standpoint - Ghiaciuc wins.
Reggie Kelly doesn't even deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Heath Miller. Miller wins... Probably Spaeth and Tuman as well.
So let’s see... It all comes down to this...
Stats = Bengals, Rings = Steelers.
