Bengals willing, able to keep it on the ground

The Steelers don’t have the capacity to grind away running the ball the way they used to.

The Bengals have no such problems.

The Bengals just took a 7-3 lead, with 49 yards of an 80-yard drive coming on the ground. Cedric Peerman got the final five for the touchdown, but BenJarvus Green-Ellis had the other 44 on eight carries to set the pace.

The Steelers can’t try to pretend to match it, because they don’t have the bodies because of a rash of injuries.

Playing without the starting right tackle, center and top two backs from the league’s 31st-ranked run offense entering the week, the Steelers are going to have to get it done through the air tonight.

    That there was the most ridiculous delusional steeler fan comment yet. Ben Vick. It’s over time to rebuild and they should start by trading Wallace for draft picks.

    It’s a nice thought…however no team will give up draft picks for Wallace…sure he can catch a screen pass and go deep and catch the ball in the bread basket….but he can’t catch a thing with his hands. Tonight is evidence of why the Steelers wouldn’t pay him and no other teams would make an offer.
