Hello Steeler Nation,
Diehard Bengal fan here, don't crucify me please.
First, lemme start by apologizing for the ignorant front runners that talk shhh with nothing to back it up, be it on your blogs or live at the game. We all jaw to some degree, that's just the fun of the NFL. With the Steelers winning 62% of their contests against Cincy, i'm not sure why our bandwagoners feel entitled to pop off. I'm sure yall have some haters too, just not quite the volume we have.
I study up on the AFC North quite a bit, and have always been intrigued by the confusing defensive fronts of BAL and PIT. With your offense having the offseason and practices against that dynamic D, can a prototypical 4-man front be able to create any problems for your OLine?
Also, forgive me if i'm wrong, but it seems the PIT pass rush isn't showing up on the stat sheets cuz QB's are bitching out and settling for intentional grounding or throwing the ball at their RB's feet. What will it take for Palmer to overcome these 1-5-5 and 2-4-5 fire zones???
Lemme just say, i'm really looking forward to a hardhitting smashmouth football game, hopefully CIN will show up to play.
Best of Luck (not that yall need it) We'll see yall Sunday.
