Default Which Player Plays the Biggest Role Today?

For the Steelers and the Begals... Who is your Most important player for each teams success against the other?
Mine..
is a tie... Parker on Offense and Polomalu on Defense, is he really healthy enough to make an impact against the Bengals wr's?
for the Bengals.... Rudy and the Bengals run defense... if they succeed... its gonna be along day for us Steelers...

Ben R. is the key for me on Steelers offense - he needs to throw early and well and put the Bengals D back on their heels - the guy is a talisman if he plays well his team team will take a massive lift from it.

It is debatable whether Parker has the O-line or ability to break this one open if the passing game doesnt open up, and he is facing 8 in the box.

Polamalu is the heartbeat of the defense - I will be watching very closely to see how he holds his 'feels great' shoulder - a couple of big plays from this guy and it changes the momentum of a whole game.

Carson will be the key for the Bengals offense - Rudi is a very fine runner but the Steelers have one of the best run D units in the NFL.

Carson may look to exploit Polamalu's big strength - his playmaking, slightly undisciplined style of play that leaves him open at times to have the big play made against him.

Bengals run D must force Ben to throw and keep throwing well into the game by locking down Willie Parker - this wont be as easy as the Jags made it look with the level of talent on the current Bengals D.

We will need to pass to open up the run game...so the answer is Ben.....

On the other side...Carson Palmer...if we give him time and space...he will kill us...

Call me crazy, but I think Davenport might have a say in the outcome.

I think the weathers to lousy they should NO play today and move todays game to tomorrow in hope of better weather

Offense-Big Ben needs to have a big game
Defense-Ike Taylor must catch the ball if its in his hands
