Re: Game thread: Bengals and Steelers - part deux
The Steelers are NOT the same team they were this time last year, by any stretch, but that's beside the point. You play the team on the field, not the one from last year or the week before. Winning on the road in the NFL is tough and the Bengals have done a good job of it this year. They are not an elite team yet and I really didn't expect them to win the division this year (did anyone?), but they can play with anyone and have thus far given the NFL best Colts their toughest game. I am pretty well convinced that this team is for real.
What will it take to get into the elite realm? The 'gals are a big Tackle and a couple of quality safeties away from being a Superbowl team.
