Very inconsistent team, but they're in and we're out, nuff said.
And now they're out too.

Making the postseason and not winning a playoff game is just as useless as not getting there at all.

Yeah the goal is to win the superbowl and anything less is failure.

Dalton cost his team the game. He underthrew / overthrew AJ Green mutliple times. The Bengals made a mistake by going for a down-the-field game plan with a quarterback who was underthrowing deep routes.

The Bengals OC does a bad job of getting the ball into his star players hands. AJ Green didnt have a touch until the 3rd and Gresham finished with 2 catches. PA to Gresham to get him in the game early or something.

Yet another reason why the running game is important- you can always get your star player the ball if it is your running back. Arians had 40 touches.

Marvin Lewis has proven he will never win anything as a HC. Having him in Cincy was like Norv in SD. Thats 2 less teams to worry about.

Based on how the season went down the Steelers deserved to miss the playoffs.

Besides, Houston is a bad matchup for the Steelers. Even at full strength the Steelers would need to play a near-perfect game to beat them on the road.

We should be glad that it was Cincy blowing that game and not our beloved team.

I disagree, I would have rather had the chance to beat the Texans than to not have had the opportunity at all.

I agree with you.

I'm watching the Bengals-Texans game with my brother-in-law, and he says, "I'm glad the season is over. I was tired of losing. I didn't even want the Steelers to make the play-offs."

And, that's when it hit me: FUCK THAT!!!

I'd rather have a slim shot than NO shot.

You should have informed your brother-in-law that you have to lose games to miss the playoffs.

Ha, ha, ha... true.

Really though, what I told him was not nearly that nice.

We suck. We lost to the freaking Bengals, who are obviously not a playoff team.

The Bengals and Vikings were some of the worst looking 6 seeds I've ever watched. I actually had it in my mind that 1 of those 2 was going to pull it out. Abysmal.

Both winners used a variety of weapons yesterday, running it, passing it, winning TOP. Arian Foster had a huge day and Rogers had 4 receivers with 50 plus yards and 9 different targets altogether. Their FB got 1 rushing and 1 receiving TD. Damn this small-ball!

I can't imagine why Haley and Artsy-fartsy would want to try and aim for efficiency over the long-ball?
