EVERY game is a must-win game! If you are a smart, discliplined and well-coached team you never look past ANY opponent, no matter how dismal their record is (see NY Giants).

As this is a division rival, it's that much more significant. And I agree, any time you can beat them in their own house, that much better. And I'm with Dino....Douchemanzada's TT incident STILL gets my blood boiling.

Yup.... It could make for a long week.

Its still a must win, its a division game and if we win the grip on the division title is that much tighter.

I think our defense should be fine. They have no running game to speak of, and we should be able to pressure Fitz. My only concern is his mobility, and the possibility of him making some big plays while scrambling outside the pocket.

I am a bit concerned about our offense. I know everyone wants to go into this game with a smash-mouth ram-it-down-their-throat mentality, but our offense has been at its best in an up-tempo no-huddle setting. I'd rather see us come out in shot-gun and hurry-up, attack their secondary and get a quick lead.

Last year against inferior opponents on the road we started out too conservatively, thinking we could just run the ball at will. That may be the "steeler way" but it's not the strength of this particular team. The second half of the ravens game and most of the jax game is pretty good evidence for that.
I do agree with most of your post.

However, the Bengals run defense is nowhere near the caliber of these two teams, so even if it is not our strength, we should try to pound the ball and control possession anyway. This will make play action much more effective and give Ben more time to throw (if they key on the run).

IMHO

It is a must-win in that if we lose, it would really be a major blow to the teams confidence.

They need to be on an up-swing going into the Giants-Redkins-Colts-Chargers run

Not to mention EVER GAME IN THE AFC IS MUST WIN.

The first tiebreaker after head-to-head is conference record. If we go undefeated in our conference, then we win that tiebreaker for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd seed in the AFC Playoffs.

Very much a trap game for the Steelers, but the only way i see us losing is if we shoot ourselves in the foot will stupid turnovers, ect..

We need to stick to our game plan, establish a run game(hopefully FWP is back), work the TE's and play action, and most importantly Play smash mouth football on defense.

There desperate with a back-up QB which could mean anything, trick plays, flea flickers, onside kicks we all have to be ready for these plays.

Must-win because we risk the "Last year" factor where we just phoned in road games against really shitty teams. That HAS to stop, and this Sunday is hopefully when the worm turns.

I'd go even farther and say not only must we win, we must look good doing it. We haven't really beaten anybody up since Houston, and they barely count...we need a good all-around performance to spring-board us into the meat of the schedule.

I hate the Bengals players. I don't hate the franchise itself, because the Steelers get so many wins from them
But the players piss me off

No Palmer=Beatdown!!!!!!!!!! We can't look past this game because it's a division game...but we should be able to get adequate pressure on the back-up quaterback and end those fans crying. I wish I was going to the game because I live in Cincy....but I will be cheering them on in Hamilton!
