duus Posted January 2, 2006 Report Share Posted January 2, 2006 Well guys, here we go again. This one will sit in the losers throat for over 8 months. As you have seen by now, the nation of fans is down on us. We are 2 1/2 point underdogs at home. With the typical 3 points given for home teams, that means most folks are expecting the Steelers to win by almost a touchdown. Smells a bit like it did just prior to the 12/4 game. As I recall, the Steelers were favored by about the same back then as well. Keep in mind, the underdog has won both of the previous games. I haven't yet had the time for detailed quotes regarding the upcoming came, but you can trust that I have heard (while driving) 100% confidence from the local fan base (callers) and numerous local sports writers/reporters (i.e. Ilkin, Wolfley, and Madden). All have clearly predicted a Steelers victory. All are stating the obvious that the Steelers have the 'mojo' going, while the Bengals have been "sitting back with their feet up" for the last few weeks. As Wolfley commented, "It's very hard to turn the switch back on, and the Steelers have been tried and tested the last four weeks."Obviously, much, much more to come.
