In years past, the Steelers generally had to worry about Cincinnati's passing game first: Ken Anderson, Isaac Curtis, Boomer, Ocho Cinco, now AJ Green. Not that the Dalton Gang isn't a must stop for the Steelers D, but there's another, bigger worry on Monday night. We'll get the scouting report on the Bengals from Dave Lapham, a former offensive guard and now color analyst on their radio network at 1pm.
At 1:30, Matt Williamson will offer his analysis and prediction on the game, and also discuss whether the Steelers giving up big plays is just a bump in the road, or a giant pothole.
Ian Cole is expected to be back in the lineup tonight after being a healthy scratch. I'm beginning to wonder if the Penguins were sending a message to not only him, but the entire team to WAKE UP! I'll ask Phil Bourque that question, and others, at 12:30.
And I'm wondering what kind of crowd will show up at PPG Paints Arena for the Pitt-Duquesne game tonight. I remember a time when it was THE biggest winter sporting event around here!
