    Do the Steelers have anything left in the tank for the Bengals?

    Do the Steelers have anything left for the Bengals?

    2 huge, emotional, games at home where they split the outcome. 2 of the best teams in the AFC, and 2 of the arguably the better teams in the league battled it out against our Steelers so you can't help but wonder how much emotion they have left in the tank.

    Typically you would think that this would be a trap game. Steelers vs Bengals, sure there have been some good games over the years but you usually expect Pittsburgh to win. This year though the Bengals are 6-2 right now and have a top rated defense. Logic would say that this could be a low scoring game and probably a pretty close one, if you base it solely on the standings of both teams right now.

    Not even breaking down the X's and O's just yet, how much emotion does this team have right now? Are they going to be so pissed off that they come into Cincy and just completely dominate them or are they going to have trouble getting off the ground in this one...

    They had damn well better have some emotion. The Bengals are ahead of them and than they have a bye to relax and catch a breather.

    I'm actually looking forward to seeing the Bengals. I haven't watch a play of theirs and their defense is ranked high and their record is very good.

    They don't have a choice, they have to get over it and get ready for Cincy.

    My feeling on the Cincy game are the Steelers will start out slow and then completely dominate the Bengals.

    Has anyone watched a Bengals game this year? Are they really that good?

    I believe they have more than enough in the tank. As a matter of fact, I believe they are more likely to win this game now than they would have been had they beaten the Ravens. This team seems to like to follow up big wins with poor performances and poor performances with big wins. Rather than sleepwalking through next week's game, perhaps they will be more fired up.

    Give the Red Rocket a beat down.

    I watched the game yesterday. The Bengals aren't bad at all, but I wouldn't classify them as a top tier team based on the teams they have played thus far. They don't make dumb mistakes, the defense seems to be holding up and it looks like Dalton is good at getting the ball out to the right guy. The kind of team that can be beat if you play a solid game, but can also beat you if you let them hang around.

    They haven't played anyone yet. I saw some of the Titans game. Traditionally we feast on rookie qbs. Dalton and wr AJ Green are both rookies.
    Cleveland Browns suck!

    I think either 2 things will happen. The team comes out pissed and dominates or they start out slow with a hangover from last weeks loss and then have to battle back to win the game.
