I can tell you from first hand experience that Bengals fans aren't any fun to play with this year! They won't wear their jerseys to work and they take their toys and go home mad!

Here are my reasons.

1st. Divisional Game. Obviously. But more than that, it is also a Conference game which is very meaningful for tiebreaker situations.

2nd. Its a Road game that we "should" win. Last year, we lost THREE of these games. Lost at the Jets, lost at the Cardinals, lost at the Broncos. Great teams win the games they should on the road.

3rd. Its the running game stupid. This week should provide a good bounce to our running attack, going against the Bengals who average allowing 156.8 yards a game on the ground ranked 28th. If ever we were going to pound the ball and give our guys up front the chance to dominate, this is the game.

4th. TJ Housh wiped his shoes with a terrible towel. Does anyone else remember? I do, always will. It is our obligation as a STEELERS NATION to want to destroy the Bengals at every single chance we get. This is another opportunity to wipe the field with their sorry butts.

5th. They are desperate. A team backed into a corner the way the Bengals are backed up can be dangerous. They will attempt to use this game, against their "rival" to turn around their season. We Must Not Allow That To Happen. Bottom line. We need to punish them from the first play to the last to ensure they don't have any hopes of winning and they are hanging their heads by halftime regretting the moment they were ever signed as Bengals.

6th. No Let Downs.


"Ditto" To all of the above. Trap game.

Yeah, without Palmer and a sketchy running game, I dont expect much from the Bengals O. Their run D doesnt seem to have improved much either.

I am hoping that its a blowout and we get to see some guys like Leftwich, Sweed, Russell.....maybe even Bruce Davis, get some playing time and experience.

Bengal fans are jumping ship and giving away their tickets. Steeler Nation is snatching them up.

This sounds too good to be true, and that's why this game scares me a little.

If I recall correctly last year on defence we kind of sat back in Nickel and Dime packages and let Carson try to beat us vs minimal pass rush which was effective if a little boring. This year the base pass rush should be better.

If we ask Fitzy to beat us in the air, maybe a good chance to get some INT's

I think we should be able to pound it in this game even with Russell and Dookie if Willie's not 100%. If we're up a few TD in the game why not let those "tough yardage" backs in there.

They're starting Starks over Essex for Marvel maybe if he's to spasmy to start. Perhaps another indication of a run-heavy day. Starks and Kemo on the left side together should be a good road grading team. Maybe we'll see some good action out of McHugh at FB as well.

We need to just establish the line of scrimmage first and foremost. These fools played the Giants tough and the Cowboys tough. We need to be sure that we don't take them for granted. If we can get out to a 14 point lead by halftime, I like our chances of slowing things down in the 2nd half and eating clock to get home with a win. I don't want this to be one of those, Bengals up 10 at halftime games that we have to then manage to come back from. I hate those games. Give me a nice big lead, and a dominating performance by our defense. That way, we gobble up any hope they may have of getting their first win this week.
