Default Time to make a statement

With last night nail biting win over the chiefs, we look like a team thats going to back into the playoffs and be one and done. I know a win is a win and that we have a history of playing down to our competition, but if there was ever a time to make a statement its this week against Cincy. We need a complete dominating win over them to send a message to the AFC that Pitt is a team to be reckoned with whether we get a wild card or win the division. Lets get troy and woodley back on defense an shut down the rookie dalton, and air it out on offense against the bengals secondary playing without leon hall. We need a performance like we had against tennessee earlier with ben throwing 5td's and totally tearing up a team.

As for myself I would like a win first and to see this team gather some momentum heading into the playoffs. Steelers rarely "blowout" their opponents. Their best games are usually around a 7-13 point margin, with most either holding on for dear life or come from behind late to win.

I understand what you're saying, but I would settle for wins that look terrible.

i know a win is a win, but letting teams hang around is going to bite us one of these days. But as long as we win im happy. just wish we could be efficient in the red zone. Especially if we end up having to play quarterbacks like rodgers or brady we need td's and not fg's

Come playoff time you probably aren't going to win too many games playing "ugly" You have to earn those victories. Don't expect the opponent's QB to hit our corners in the chest with many passes or botch the Center / QB exchange.

Look what we are able to do with just Woodley in v. Patriots and a half-good game plan on offense.

If we have a healthy Woodley, Troy, and Harrison and an efficient Red Zone offense we can beat anyone, anywhere, anytime

Public school gives one no reason to want to exist!

Lumping clods, nerds, princesses, frogs, jocks, enviros in one class results in nothing much!

I didn't have high hopes for the first game against you guys, because it was Dalton's first go 'round vs. LeBeau's D. This time around however, I actually non only expect the Bengals to play well, but to get a win. For whatever reason, we always seem to play you guys better on your turf. Having Green back and giving Dalton a second bite at the apple gives me reason for optimism. Who know's though? We'll see what happens Sunday. Here's to a great game and hoping there are no major injuries!!!

I'll drink to that

Minus the whole Bengals winning part of course

The Bengals are very capable of ending any outside hope for division title
