Default Could this be a trap Game?

Everyone is saying well be fine without Willie its the Bengals their Winless. Palmer isnt playing this should be an easy win. I dont buy that, this is the NFL every week is tough Just ask the Giants & the Redskins that lost to the winless Rams and were heavily favored and not even a divisonal opponent. On paper yes we should dominate but lets not forget the game isnt played a paper.

Go Steelers

I don't think divisional games can be trap games. Even if we had the 07' Patriots the following week, these teams hate each other.

this game has to be a 17-7 blowout: a lot of runs, a few punts and no possible way in hell for cin to score 10 points to tie the game.


if this isn't a boring ho-hum win, then that is not a good sign for us.

We need to go in and dominate the game and not take them lightly and win 42 to nothing.

It could be a trap game. Desperate times call for desperate measures and if you don't think that going 0-7 doesn't call for desperation, the you're crazier than a loon.

The Steelers need to play, "Balls Out" football - damn Goodell and his fines!!!

Slippy, I really hope it isn't a boring ho-hum game for US! I hope you we completely crush them from start to finish. I would like to see Ben and the receivers put up 21 in the first three possesions, then let our defense and running backs take over.

Can't wait to watch it, hate the bye weeks!

All the players players and even Tomlin talked about the records this week when interviewed and stated the records mean nothing and that they are going into the game as if the Bengals are undefeated. I hope the attitude stays with them and we blow them up. They all mention the Jets and Broncos games last year. They haven't forgotten.

One of the reasons we didn't jump on tickets this time ( and we could get them pretty cheap) is we don't really want to go down there and watch the second and third stringers play out the last half. But watching the Bengals fans file out onto I 71 at half time would be fun......... imagine PB stadium with only black and gold in it for half the game..........

Seriously......we all thought we'd clobber the Jets last year and we were sadly mistaken. You just never know.

EVERY game could be a trap game, including this one. I think that is one of the challenges of a coaching staff, and something that differentiates the Dungys and Cowhers from the Crennells and the Manginis; the better coaches don't let their guys get trapped as often.

Tomlin is still learning this, as witnessed by last year.

Mosca is right. Every game is a trap game. The NFL is a league of parody and you have to bring your A game each week.

Warren Sapp once laughed at how fans say "you SHOULD beat this team". Sapp said that every team in the NFL has a chance to win each week. "Its not like you can schedule Austin Peay for homecoming week in the NFL", Sapp commented.

We do have a tendency to loss games away against a bad team so i say yes it is.
I feel the only way we can lose the game is by shooting ourselves in the foot and causing bad turnovers.

The defense will have a good game containing Perry, and sacking Fitzpatrick, but we need to watch out for desperates plays and trick plays.
Play well and we will win.
