Coaching perhaps. Does it surprise you that Dick LeBeau coached pitiful Bengal teams with the same strategy? Or that Cowher was just an assistant with the joke 'n' choke Browns? Pittsburgh needs a new staff if they want to ever consider winning one for the thumb.

taylor did a good job shutting down johnson......if we do not keep him it will be a big mistake and a big hole in our defense.......he is young and turning inot a grat corner.
He shut down one of the best wide receivers in the leage twice this year.......henry and TJ got so many catches because chad was covered all game......

"5 receptions for 54 yards, the longest being 19. Case Closed."

Houshmandzadeh - 5 catches for 88 yards, the longest being 43, 2 TDs. Case closed.

Don't take too much heart in having stopped the gold-toothed wonder, since the resources devoted to ensuring he wouldn't defile the beloved black-and-gold end zone seemed to have freed up some space for other Bengals receivers.

Wow, I missed the memo when shutting down Chad Johnson, Mr. "who can cover 85 in '05" became shutting down the whole WR core. Maybe by covering CJ we opened it up for Rudi Johnson! NO WAIT! Maybe since we covered Chad Johnson, that contributed to you punting the ball to us on occasion, which led to Ben throwing the ball, and then you guys intercepted it! Thanks to Chad Johnson, you guys got 3+ interceptions! Chad Johnson is the reason your Defense is so good! wow...

minus 1 play in which the defender was plastered to housh, he was contained pretty well. he just had one hell of a game and didnt drop anything. i was kinda suprised the bengals let hines get open for 3 td even though he only caught 2 and dropped one.

Chad had 11 passes thrown to him... He was covered well.. He only ended up with 5 catches, but 2 of the 6 incompletions included the long pass that chad caught but lost when he hit the ground, and another where he bobbled it. But the days of Doubling chad are coming to an end... Dont consider stopping Chad a victory... In fact... Dont think you stopped him at all..

5 catches for 54 yards still... That is far from shutdown... And on the 4 incompletions broken up by your D, 3 of them he was doubled...

We have 3 recieving threats you need to shut down to beat us now.

He was shut down... again.

He has clearly met his match... Ike has been able to bottle him up twice now, while most of the NFL can't keep him out of the end-zone or below 100 yards... Ike has done both two games in a row.

I don't think this is what Chad had in mind when he said he had some stuff to iron out.

Chad was used as a decoy at points in this game. I saw at least 2 occasions where deep coverage peeled off to help double Johnson leaving the underneath guy open...one advantage to being at the game and seeing the whole field in realtime.

A little more pass rush would have made all the difference. Also, Colclough dropped Carson Palmer's pass to him, which somehow ended up being a TJ TD.

Outside of laying the ball down 4 times and the 3 INT's, this was still a very winnable game. There were a few key plays that made all the difference.

The "non-call" fumble early in the 1st on the punt (Called down by contact and can't be challenged). We'd have had the ball on like the Bengals 10.

Ward's dropped TD pass.

The aforementioned long TD pass which is still amazing me this morning how Colclough let's TJ just take the ball away like that.

The Steelers needed to make plays, came up short, failed to execute, and committed too many TO's to win, but, still could have won this game.

Very disappointing loss.

That was such a stupid play... he has almost no chance to catch that ball. He touched it for a second but TJ pretty much had position and took it easily. Colclough has to knock that ball down...
