While we rest, a tie or a Bengals win will be amazing !!!!!!!!!!
It would be.I hope Cinci can pull it out.I don't think so though.If they did win,I would be going bananas for sure! GO STEELERS!!
I'm just hoping for some key injuries ,, I say let them kill each other
Will be a tough game for Cin, coming off their first loss in a while (may not know how to respond) and playing in Baltimore. Not going to be easy. I really hope they can pull it off though; anything's possible.
if the ravens play like they did this week....Cincy won't have any problem
With the Raven and Bungle loss, aren't we now in first?
I/2 in? or Out?
1/2 Game up. in first
Such is the plight of the Steelers! Always have to make things harder on themselves! A win last week= a 2 game cushion... now it's time to do things the hard way... THE STEELERS way all over again! This team has to have the highest cardiac arrest rate amongst its fan base! hahaha
Well, It's a great step in the right direction. And from what I saw today, the Steelers are the class of the AFC North.
Even should the Bengals win and we are tied with them at 7 -3, do we have the tie breaker since we beat them or would they since they have a better division record at 2 -1 while we would still be 1 -2? I am just wondering.... Regardless for teh first time in my life, I will be rooting for the Bengals.
Funny thing, this week in Maryland I met my first Bengals fan in person. I had never seen one before in person....
Tie breakers are
1 head to head
2 div record
3 common games
Thanks for clarifying this. I was hoping that was the case!
While we all hat the ravens so much, they are like us in many ways. Today is another reason. They play down to competition as much as we do. How they can thump us twice this season and lose to the non division teams like they do is beyond me. They get up to play us as much as any team.
If we end up seeing them in the payoffs and we have our full compliment of players I think we win but, it'll be another nail biter.
Cin can beat the Ravens if Green and Grisham are 100%.......They play the exact style to go into the Ravens house and win.....They will need the deep threat of Green to make it work IMO......
Things we need to do is get the playbook out and insert more RB screens and running plays.... Some People still say you can't win going run heavy well the Texans and San Fran are winning......Heck the Broncos have even started winning........
If we ran the ball at least 50 % and passed from those same sets I believe we could run away from the rest of the AFC.......IMO when we got up 14-0 today it should have been 2 RB set time and ground and pound with PA......IMO if we would have done that we could have won big........Not saying go conservative just show the run and go deep off of PA on early downs......And I will always believe that 3rd. and 2 with the lead is a running or a PA down it should never be a empty set pass IMO......
I was really looking at San Francisco as our hope to win the division over Baltimore - but looking at this week, Cincinnati could do it. Maybe they learned just enough about the AFC North brand of football that they can take it to the Ratbirds on Sunday. GO BENGIRLS!!!
God I was cursing as soon as I saw that empty set on 3rd and 2.....bam down goes Ben in a half a second.
Yes this would be great but we not only beat cincy but two of their stars were injured..green and hall
a 'tie' would be terrible for both of them.
BA should get a swift kick to the nut-sack every time he goes empty backfield on 3rd and 2 or 1. Run the friggin ball BA. And I'm not talking about your BS delayed handoff to mini-Memo up the gut.
a W by CIN would put us in control of the AFC-N (tie-breaker over CIN right now, BAL with one more loss) and is in my opinion more realistic than a tie
Just don't use that polish on them Cal
I'm hoping for a Cinci win, but not holding my breath too much. Bottom line for me.......Steelers run the table and hope that the Texans and Ravens lose at least more and they secure the one seed!
