all im concerned about is our running game, but i have faith that tommarow parker will get back on track since the bungles DL is not even close 2 what jaxs DL is, expect a big game from parker and big ben..

The Bengals are going to be alot stronger offensively than the Jags were so that will make it tougher for the D to handle them.

However, it is far more likely that Willie parker will be able to move the ball on the ground tomorrow which should help the Steelers in their attempt to dominate the T.O.P battle.

The Pittsburgh running game is very, very key to what the Steelers need to do tomorrow - if they can run often and for decent yardage it will allow their high intensity D to tee off on Carson and Rudi by keeping them fresh.

If they can't then they will probably be toast in any type of shootout scenario or one where Rudi puts over 130 yards on them.

On a side note, I think the Steelers need to come out passing - the Bengals D will be stacked at the LOS attempting to recreate the Jags domination of the Steeler running game.

im looking at this as a must win game. only until a miracle of a bengals win will i start to look at the ramifications of the remainder of the season.

im sure the coaches and the players have the same approach.

All during the season we might lose a few battles, (and this one might be one of 'em) but that doesn't mean we won't win the war--last year sure proves that!

I think tomorrow's game is kind of critical for our guys' confidence level though. If we can beat the Bengals (who are supposed to be doin' SOOO much better than us right now) it'll go a long way towards settin' the pace for the rest of the season. Then hopefully, there won't be any more nail bitin' wild card chances ;) I'm not sure my heart can take that again this year lol

i am always concerned about the team. this is a huge game tomorrow, if our players are consistent and if we can put up at least 17 then i think we can win. we just cant let their offense take control of the game.this might only be the 3rd game of the season but if we lose i dont think we will make it to the playoffs. i say that cause the bengals and ravens are about equal in talent and if we lose tomorrow that could put up at least 4 losses this season, and i dont know if we will make it to the playoffs if we go 11-5 again.

I'm' concerned about this game and our season. If we can't beat a banged up Cincy team, we are definately in trouble. But if we do beat a banged up Cincy team, what does that really say about our team...

I'm not worried about a loss. These guys can't (and won't) play not to lose. They need to take calculated risks. As long as they are improving and moving forward. That was why Ben was playing last week. He had very little playing time in the preseason (as you know). These are essentially games where they are working out timing.

Hey guys, I know that you can't lean on what happen two years ago, but if you remember we won on opening weekend and then got are asses handed to us by Baltimore! The next day it was all doom and gloom, Tommy was out for at least 3 or 4 games and we had a rookie that was going to step in and play the most important position on the field. Hell, even other players on the team were stressed (Faneca called Ben a little kid). That season turned on a dime from that point on. With that being said, yes this game can go along way in telling us what kind of season we will have. Two years ago we finished 15-1 and to the AFC Championship! Lets keep focused and keep the eye on the prize!

To be honest, I don't remember the last time that I wasn't concerned before a Steeler game.

The Steelers must control the clock and have alot of success in the running game. Yes, its time that all these signed players have an impact, like Davenport and can someone show Tyrone Carter the door out of Pittsburgh, he is such a joke...
