Tomlin is an OK coach, but the team lacks 2 D's right now (no, not defense): Discipline and Desire. The Bengals are a formidable team this year and on a "hot streak". The Steelers are imploding as much as The Ravens. If we had simply won the last 2 games, we would be the leaders of our division. Judging by the way we lost those games, I cannot expect us to win the next 2 (heated divisional games). Even if we win out, there are sure to be even more injuries. We may be calling up the rest of our practice roster if we somehow manage to squeak into the playoffs.

If you consider that a weak Bengals team couldn't beat a better Steelers team in the past, you should consider that at this moment, the weak team is the Steelers, with the associated consequences.
I'm not optimistic, because I can't find good and logical reasons to be.

I certainly hope we win but I won't bet the farm on it.

I think the odds know what they're doing. I am picking us by 7.

Willing to bet against anyone who thinks otherwise.

I picked the steelers by 14 and then with a 7 point lead that all ended.
I believe this will be another tight one despite the secondary, 21-20.

Anyone think this defense can rise up for a couple performances like that?
Nnnnnnnnnnnope! When's the draft?

Well, if we can get Ike and Lewis back after the Browns (hopefully securing a playoff spot) we shoud be ok, our current Oline will have had 3 weeks to start gelling and our LBs wont have to help our DBs in coverage so much. Getting healthy will be the key (as well as winning) these next 2 weeks. If we can sneak in AND get healthy we could pull some upsets.
