give it to the guy who has a chance of doing a cutback run or bounce to the outside (mendenhall). plug the middle and dwyer/redman are stuffed, play over. mendenhall can make you pay, and actually did make them pay on a few runs.

teams will continue to show the running game no respect unless we have a running back that commands it. say what you will about mendy, but the cincy defense definitely feared him more than dwyer or redman

Yep. Teams don't need to beat us, we already do it for them.

The defense gives you opportunity after opportunity. Evenually, you need to throw the John Wayne shit out the door and use your fucking head.

Maybe they shouldn't be so predicable with their play calling when they run. Ben ain't gonna bail you out every third down.Gotta try to win the game early. Bad o-line doesn't help.

The Steelers played close to the vest all season, the best they can do now is 8-8. Very justified IMO.

Tomlin is to blame in my book. This team has been playing like crap for weeks now. No discipline.

"But look at the way he escapes tackles."

My answer: And?

I just wish we could run normal routes and make easy throws, I dont understand why our offense has always looked so difficult to run a curl route or an out route.

Look at the last play from the bengals that got them into FG range, aj green was wide open, throw was on the money easy quick throw that gained a good amount of yards, can we please do this?

It was a tough game
Our defense played hard

People downplaying the bengals effort by saying we best ourselves are wrong
Their defense played super hard too

It was an old school game for sure,

One note;

A lot of coaching boners out there today
First Lewis gift wraps an opportunity for us by trying a very long FG, then we return the favor... Not the prettiest game, but it was a great one anyway

Just wish we could have come out on top
