Awesome! Five of the six "experts" (Harmon, Prisco, Urbano, Madden, & Richard) picked the Bungals over the Steelers! Only Judge screwed up a clean sweep!

It's against the -6.5 spread not for the Steelers win. All they are saying is that it will be a close game not necessarily that the Steelers lose,

If we win, say, 30-24, and 5 out of those 6 guys are right for picking the Bengals against the spread...that's fine by me!

it's easy to pick the bungles. if you're right you're a genius, if you're wrong you simply reply - hey, it's the bungles.

I am going to go out on a limb here. Considering the Steelers just laid an 18 point beat down on the #1 defense in the NFL, in primetime, on the road, missing three defensive starters, I am going to say that the "experts" do not think they can do something similar to the Bungals at Heinz Field. Fair enough?

Considering that the *experts* have recorded about a 50% success rate in their calls this season, it means nothing.

I've got a coin that can do that. It's an expert. Heads is for Steelers, Tails is for Bengals. Call it in the air...

Yes, but haven't you looked at the official prediction thread? The line should be Steelers (-20). :tt2 8) :wink: :mrgreen:

Tough game to call. Are we getting the Steelers from the second half of the Denver game (the O in the first half sucked) or are we getting the D that couldn't keep the Bengals out of the endzone at the end of last game? And the Bengals are playing better as well.

I don't think it's all that insulting to think this could be a close game.

Of course, it could be close, because the Bengals have shown to be a quality opponent this year. However, our team realizes this, and I expect them to step it up against a good team (like they did against the Broncos, Vikings, and Chargers), and they will treat the Bengals like the good team that they are. I actually expect the game to be closer the following week against K.C. (even though the Bengals are head-and-shoulders above the Chiefs and it is not even close), because we also seem to play down somewhat to inferior teams like the Lions and Browns earlier this season.

Well, given that we have a healthy Troy now, I think the scales are tipping towards the Steelers from the second half of the Denver game.

How many “media darling” teams are the Steelers required to beat before these dime store prognosticators shut their traps? The Broncos, the Vikings, and the Chargers have all fallen by the wayside; so now, bring on the Bengals with their ridiculously egocentric WR and their neurotic fan(s), e.g., BengalMAN85.

Don't forget that our line up is full and better since we met them last. Also they don't have Henry this week. I just don't see it.

We win going away.

How about we win, and they go away? :wink: :bungalssuck
