    *BENGALS @ PITTSBURGH Prediction Thread

    The playoffs start Sunday for our Steelers and I have to believe they are up to the task. This might be the best Bengal team we faced in some time, however we get the job done and have a happy Holiday!

    STEELERS........20
    BENGALS.........13

    It's not what you do, it's how you do it.

    Still trying to figure out who is going to cover AJ Green? Unless we figure out that getting to the QB is the only way to win and we actually do it versus 3 and 4 man rushes Green will have a big day.
    1.25 DT Vernon Butler, La Tech, 6’4” 323
    2.58 CB Artie Burns, Miami, 5’11” 189
    3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 6’6” 240-Jarvis Jones’ replacement
    4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 6’4 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
    6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 6’7” 322-raw talent with ton of upside
    7.229 CB Brian Poole, Florida, 5’10” 210
    7.246 WR/KR Ed Eagan, Northwestern State, 5’ 10” 185-need WR depth and returner

    I predict we pull it off. Whether it's by 1 or 40 it doesn't matter to me, as long as we get the dubya.

    AJ Green is a handful for anyone to cover, but Keenan Lewis matches up pretty well with him and I'm sure he'll have safety help over the top.

    Yeah, if we were relying on the likes of Brown/Victorian/Golden/King, I'd be extremely worried. If Ike was available, not so much. With Lewis & Allen both listed as probable, I think we have a shot here.

    Sunday will be the Seahawks and Bengals super bowl. I am a little concerned of the changing of the guard here.

    If we can't force turnovers, Dalton will have a field day on the score board. Bengals will be going for stripping the ball, gotta hold on to it. This strategy can hurt them though if they don't wrap up and Dwyer et al can get some big gains.

    Steelers have to play perfect games anymore to get the W's including special teams. I am not sure they are capable of doing that right now.

    I think we'll be fine with Keenan and Cortez too. I'd put Allen on Green and give him help over the top and leave Keenan 1 on 1 opposite. Allen's every bit the athlete that Ike is. Allen blanketed Gronk last year and I think that's a tougher matchup for any corner.

    The thing to remember here is Cincy has 1 weapon - Green. Lebeau can take 1 guy away from a team no problem. With or without Ike. At the same time, we need to contain their running game and their TE. Cincy is just so 1 dimensional, I see them struggling offensively against us.
