I'll even allow for Washington to be more show than go (despite RG3), but even if that's true, we're still looking at 5-5 unless we get our shit together and start playing like we mean it.
I'm not sure we can handle Cincy at this point. Dalton, for the most part, has been looking very good.
Normally, i'd say K.C. is in the bank....but ....can't say that, either. Every time we play a not-so-good team, we seem to make them look like the Patriots.

And THAT has been the problem for at least a season or more.

There was a time when I'd check to see who we were playing and if I saw a team like Tennessee or KC, I'd think "blowout" and that would be it. But lately I find myself "hoping" we can get past teams that not too long ago were regarded as little more than speed-bumps to us and there is something SERIOUSLY WRONG with thinking like that about a Pittsburgh Steeler team.

There was a time when I'd be watching a game and we'd be up by three scores before halftime and I'd start flipping channels to see what else might be on instead of watching a blowout. But nowadays, even a FOUR score lead is something that I find myself "hoping" we can hang on to and that shit is just wrong!

Actually, the offense has taken a step back since Oakland. 16 and 23 points. It needs to do better.

If our defense doesn't change, and we run Hampton, Keisel, Ike, etc out there with the same soft coverage and "contain" DL play, Dalton will eat this team up. I don't even want to think what Eli and the Giants will do.

RGIII and the Skins is our best chance at a win in the next three games, but don't be surprised if we are 2-6 at the break.

Was this picture taken in the bathroom of a Sheetz?

They will be wearing "Uniformz!" Sorry, I could not resist. Those things are embarrassing.

Uniformz - I love it. If we're going this route - I'll take a pass on the Steelerz Defenze
