It’s a fact.  I know it to be true because I had it printed on this shirt.  See?

But we’ll get to that in a minute.  We won a prime time game.  It’s about time.  People are calling it mean words like ‘sloppy’ but I only care about one letter…’W’.  34-13 is a walloping the our defense were the ones that delivered it.  I don’t think we have to sugar coat anything.  Our offense was not up to the challenge but our defense made it all possible.  4 fumbles and and INT is the way to go.  On the other side of things, Dalton was only 13/27 for 127 yards.  He’s going to have to do better than that against Pittsburgh.  However, BenJarvus Green-Ellis had another 100 yard game and we definitely need to keep that going.  A.J. was okay but I think we can put some of that on Andy.  I think we can all agree that we still need some improvement but we’re grateful for win.  Scroll down for this weeks game.

Well…I did have all this stuff I was going to say about the game but my buddy Eric already did.  The main point to think about here is ‘we win, we’re in’.  I believe that these two teams have grown in opposite directions since their last battle.  The Bengals have gotten better while the Steelers have gotten stinkier.  Now, even though I do hate those dirty, rotten cheaters, I do have to admit that they know how to play…a bit.  I think we all feel that the Steelers have become our nemesis and there isn’t a bone in my body that doesn’t want them destroyed.  I think Andy has to come out and realize that he can be the elite quarterback that no one expects him to become.  I’ll I’ve heard lately is Andy’s good…but that’s it.  No one thinks he can take this team to the next level…but I think us die-hard, WHO DEY fans think he can.

Without getting into a deep analysis about this I’m just gonna say it’s gonna be a close one.  We need to establish the run early.  We’ve been doing a pretty good job of this lately but it’s going to be a little bit harder to do that this week.  We should come out fast, maybe a no huddle, and get points on the board.  The less those puke-yellow towels are waving around the better.  Defense needs to just keep doing what their doing with an emphasis on keeping Ben in the pocket.  When he starts scrambling we enter the ‘Danger Zone’ and that is more dangerous then the one from ‘Top Gun’.  The final say is going to be who wants it more, and lately I’m not sure which team that would be. I know I want it more then those ugly Steeler fans so I’m gonna go with my boys.  Close game. 20-17  WHO DEY!!!
