Default Good match-up this weekend

Saw this on the ESN blog today...


By Jamison Hensley, ESPN

Here's a top matchup heading into Sunday's Bengals-Steelers game along with a take from Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc.

MATCHUP OF THE DAY

WHO: Bengals WR A.J. Green vs. Steelers CB Ike Taylor

BREAKDOWN: The fourth overall selection in this year's draft, Green has been an impact player, leading NFL rookies in receptions. (40), receiving yards (599) and touchdown catches (5). He can stretch the field, producing five catches of more than 40 yards -- which ranks third in the NFL. Green has a catch of at least 20 yards in four straight games and has scored a touchdown in three of the past four games. Taylor has had a strong season and is considered one of the top cornerbacks in the AFC. Quarterbacks are completing less than a third of their passes when throwing in the direction of Taylor, who is coming off a below-average game against the Ravens' Anquan Boldin. Taylor has broken up three passes and doesn't have an interception this season.

WILLIAMSON'S TAKE: "Should be a great matchup and Pittsburgh will almost always put Taylor on the opposing No. 1 wide receiver. Cincinnati's offense is all short quick passing. They will take three or so shots deep though per game -- almost always to Green and often off play action. But I think overall, Taylor matches up very well with Green. Green has superb leaping ability and ball skills, but Taylor has very good size and comparable speed. Taylor is also far more refined at his craft and Green is a slender guy that still is not real strong, especially at the line of scrimmage against press man, which is what Taylor will and should do a lot of in this matchup."

This is the matchup I fear the most this weekend. If Ike can contain Green, I think we will be in good shape to get a much needed win under our belts.

I seriously wouldn't be surprised to see the Bungles take a little page out of Flacco and the Ravens book and just go deep MULTIPLE times just to try to draw a flag. You just know it's coming now. Shots will be takin.

Thats what worries me the most, seem like alot of teams are taking advantage of that.
