Default I have a funny feeling about this game

This is being set up by the experts as a national burial for the old, slow Steelers at the hands of the up and coming Bengals. Maybe they're right. I won't be surprised if the Bengals win, even win fairly big.

But I have a strange feeling that we may surprise people. Can't put my finger on it, but I just don't trust the Bengals as favorites. Not since Marvin Lewis took over, certainly not with that O'Donnell clone they have at QB. The Esaison-led Bengals would have mercilessly dismantled a Steeler team in flux, such as this one is. Don't feel it with these Bengals.

We lost our guys on both sides of the ball that call the assignments, which is not good, but on the other hand, it forces the coaches to simplify things. JJ is starting at OLB, another reason to simplify. Less thinking, more attacking on D, perhaps? We got close to some turnovers last week, very close. I think we break through this week and get a couple.

On offense, who knows. The Bengals D is supposed to be the next great thing, but they didn't exactly shut down a very average Bears' offense and had 0 sacks against a famously bad OL.

We get a couple drives that yield 10 pts, the defense sets up a couple more scores with turnovers, and we shock the viewing public.

Steelers 24 Bengals 17

I hope you are right, unlike some others I have never had a problem with winning ugly. Style points don't mean shinola in football.

I don't have a problem with winning ugly either.... just not every game. I'd like a straight ass-whuppin' once in awhile.

Default Re: I have a funny feeling about this game

after last week, a win for us at all would be surprising a lot of people. Personally, I expect this game to be close either way. I don't think the Bengals are in a position to give anybody a thumpin'. I also believe we're closer to being a competitive team than many people think. Like it's been said, we need the running game to get going.

I definitely hope you're right Maddog78! We could use a big time early season victory at this point to jumpstart some morale on this team.
