Default Big Ben reacts to Cowher's prediction

Big Ben reacts to Cowher's prediction
http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_652933.html

John Harris is a sports columnist for the Tribune-Review. He can be reached via e-mail or at 412-481-5432.

Asked about former Steelers coach Bill Cowher's preseason prediction that Cincinnati would win the AFC North, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said with a straight face, "He's a mastermind. Obviously, he knew something we didn't know.''

Defensive end Travis Kirschke missed another day of practice, clouding his status for Sunday's home game against Cincinnati. Kirschke sat out against Denver with the injury and was replaced by Nick Eason, who helped the Steelers limit the Broncos to 27 rushing yards. Fullback Carey Davis also missed Thursday's practice with a hamstring injury. Safety Tyrone Carter, the AFC Defensive Player of the Week with two interceptions against Denver, missed practice because of illness. Wide receiver Hines Ward, linebacker James Farrior, cornerback Deshea Townsend and guard Trai Essex all returned to practice.

For Cincinnati, linebacker Keith Rivers (calf) and guard Evan Mathis (ankle) missed their second consecutive day of practice. Safety Roy Williams (forearm) sat out after practicing on Wednesday. Defensive end Robert Gathers (hip), running back Jeremi Johnson (chest) and defensive end Frostee Rucker (neck) were limited in practice.

Quotable

"Having been with Chad, nothing he would do would surprise me. He's a great player, and a good guy.'' -- Steelers defensive coordinator and former Cincinnati coach Dick LeBeau on Bengals coach Marvin Lewis preventing receiver Chad Ochocinco from sending mustard to Steelers cornerbacks this week to help them "ketch-up'' with him.

Digits

1 -- Number of NFL teams ranked in the top 5 in both offense and defense this week (Steelers).

10 -- Number of defensive takeaways during Steelers' current five-game winning streak.

The Bungles haven't won anything and they have to get past us to even have a shot to win the division. Simply put - that aint gonna happen.

Monday night the Steelers exposed Denver as the overrated team they are. Sunday the steelers will show that the Bundles are a total fraud.

Super mouth better wear his titanium teeth. He's gona need them.

It's not the first time Cowher (or other previous Steelers alum) have picked against us. We have to remember that they are the media pundits now and their job is to provide ratings for the network.

Our job is to cheer on the Steelers and laugh at the media pudits Sunday night when they do their best attempt at back pedaling.

But why not use it as a little extra motivation to prove them wrong!

I'm sure if the Bengals had a siren to crank, Bill would be cranking away with his new set of chicklets.
Cowher is paid to run his mouth and stir up talk.....I just wish he was more cognizant of the way he's perceived in Pittsburgh....he should know better.

Bill always backs us. The Steelers no longer pay him though, CBS does. They need those guys to stir things up since they are competing with 4 other networks. If push came to shove, Bill would be in our court.

I agree with this.

Not to mention, he knows it is going to motivate some of his old players, especially Big Ben who he has always butted heads with.

Yeah I actually think he's supporting us by saying that. If he woulda said the Steelers are gonna win the AFC North the players woulda just gone, hmm ok, nice of him to support us. But he said the Bengals would win, knowing that it would fire some guys up and make them want to prove him wrong.
