First Half vs Bengals OPEN THREAD

Hey All, welcome to our week 14 Open Thread here at Steelers Gab!

Here are today’s Inactives:

Cincinnati: RB Cedric Peerman, QB Dan LeFevour, WR Jerome Simpson, CB Johnathan Joseph, OT Kirk Chambers, OG Reggie Stephens, DL Victor Adeyanju, LB Vincent Rey.

Pittsburgh: DL Aaron Smith, QB Charlie Batch, TE Heath Miller, OT Jonathan Scott, RB Jonathan Dwyer, CB Keenan Lewis, DL Steve McLendon, OT Tony Hills.

Nowhere to go for Ced Benson after the Bengals gain 8 on first down

Offsides on Woodley gives the Bengals what would have been a shot to get off the field…dumb penalty to start it

Bengals moving well here on this drive, and your about to get a penalty on Ike

Trickery by the Bengals, take a 7-0 lead

Ok return by Brown gives the Steelers a start at the 30, offense needs to come right back and help out a bad defensive series

Escape by Ben and gets a great pass off to Rashard, who spins for 9 yards

Bengals getting too much room on pass plays, and Palmer seems in a zone early

Steelers on 2nd drive, would like to see more Mendy here on this drive

Bad thrown on 3rd and 3

Scott seems to have more cutback speed than Benson

Long way to go for the offense, but would be nice to see a long drive here

Steelers doing a nice job with keeping the penalties down today as well

    Twice that the Bengals have dropped the ball once it hits the ground, too bad the Steelers didint get it

    Falling into bad habits, giving up 3rd and 10’s…cant do that against anyone

    Its a good thing they have Troy because, its becoming more obvious as the season wears on that the Steelers offense, just isn’t that good , at all.

    Big play for Troy, more worried about him being hurt

    Troy is a life saver week in and week out

    Big play here on 3rd, they need to keep this drive going, offense has been a little sloppy today

    Wow, looks like Roethlisberger is NEVER going to get a call again! Way to go Walt Coleman

    WTF!!!!!WTF!!!!!! Can someone tell me what in the hell has to happen to get a roughing the passer call in favor of our QB??? How about the knee to the jaw as the Bunghole player was getting up!! Why is this stuff never seen by the zebras! Living up here in North Central Mass I can tell you that this sh*t would never happen to Brady. I gotta think the Rooneys are ready to snap!
