    Thumbs down Could the Browns and Bengals be any LESS helpful?



    Both have turned in miserable efforts, namely the Bengals, in defeating the Steelers. Poor Marvin Lewis doesn't still have a job in any other city, and these Browns seem to lack any soul.

    While I agree, the Steelers gave them every opportunity to win and they didn't take advantage.

    But doesn't it remind you of some of the Ravens games against the Steelers.

    I wouldn't expect much from the 9ers either. They have their divison locked up. Why get starters hurt!

    San Fran will be playing for a bye week still; the Saints are right behind them.

    In that case they should win.

    Sf will beat the Steelers and maybe the Browns might pull it off in Cleveland because they know they gave them this game.

    Ben's ankle is also going to jacked up until the off season so his moving around is going to be limited. Pouncey is hurt as well.

    The Ravens simply need to focus on winning one week at a time and they'll be fine.

    Still though, its a damn shame that they pissed away that Jags game because the pressure is on the Ravens to stay ahead of these lucky cats (Pitt).

    Hey, I heard the Big East is looking for teams, maybe the Ohio teams should give them a ring.

    Coming off 10 days rest Pitt will man handle SF just like the Ravens did. Hope I"m wrong but that's what I expect.

    Jim is not going to rush just four guys against Ben. He'll send the house because contrary to ESPN's belief that Ben has superpowers, he'll still be hobbled and immobile. Ben can stand in all he wants but to get beaten into submission by that defense is a real possibility.

    In addition, Pouncey, Troy and Ziggy Hood are hobbled as well.

    SF at home will be physical and gritty enough to beat the Steelers.

    The 9ers have too much to play for to lose and if you don't think John is not going to give Jim every key to beating them then they can't be brothers.

    Less than you'd think. The 49ers hold all the tiebreaks over New Orleans & would have to lose at least 2 more games to give up the bye. Their final 3 games are all in-division, though away, & only the Seachickens in week 16 have any realistic hope of knocking them off unless half the team lands on IR.
    --and if you don't think John is not going to give Jim every key to beating them then they can't be brothers.
    --& if you think Jim is going to do anything for John that puts his team in any jeopardy at all--e.g., playing players whose health is borderline--then you don't understand sibling rivalry. SF will play hard but won't take any unwarranted risks in the name of brotherly love.

    Disagree on both counts.

    The loss to the Cards puts SF in must win territory and if Jim has a chance to beat the Steelers but decides to rest say Patrick Willis and they lose it could have ramifications on the 9ers and the Ravens (can John deal with the pressure of losing yet another division title to the Steelers and having to play on the road in the playoffs only to lose).

    In fairness to you I see you responded before Sunday's game but even if SF beat the Cards, I am confident that Jim would go balls out for his team to beat a club that he could potentially play in the SB and until the top seed is no longer a possibility every game is a must win.

    Why would SF rest players at this point? They are at the least fighting for the #2 seed with the Saints, and with that a first round bye in the playoffs.
