In the truncated timetable that has been the last three days leading up to tomorrow’s contest, the Steelers’ media buzz has focused on 1)the gambling debacle as a result of the blown call finale on Sunday, 2) the apparent threats levied by the Bengals on Hines Ward as result of his jaw-breaking hit on Keith Rivers, 3) Big Ben’s BBQ sauce and body guard, and 4) that things have gotten so bad in Bengal-land that the fans are literally organizing a smear campaign against their own team’s management. (Take note, Pirates fans).
That being said, the Fightin’ Fitzpatricks did manage to eek a draw out of last week’s contest against the Eagles. And Just as my retarded cousin Ned could ruin next Thursday’s festivities by putting his dick in the stuffing, so too can the Bengals find a way to disrupt our playoff run.
The Steeler Defense should give us a decent cushion for offensive miscues/shitty play-calling. Hopefully we’ve learned from Sunday’s squeaker and a decent mix of shorter passes and FWP is in order until we can open it up with “Tone” (as Ben apparently enjoys referring to #10). Better kick coverage and a reduction in penalties (especially false starts) are also sorely needed.
HOPEFULLY, we’re looking at 8-3 with a 9 day rest before heading up to Foxboro without any sort of bad taste in our mouth from the retards…
