The Orange and Black Insider Bengals podcast: Men of Steel

On this week’s episode of the Orange and Black Insider, Scott Schulze and Anthony Cosenza preview the Week 7 clash with the Steelers. The two of us ask the ultimate question: Is Mike Mitchell a dirtier player than Vontaze Burfict?

Week 7 presents a huge AFC North matchup, as the conference playoff picture is beginning to emerge. Both the Bengals and the Steelers have shown major ups and downs this season, but this Sunday will provide a huge litmus test for both squads.

So far this year, both teams have shown the ability to get to the quarterback with frequency and have gotten by with some subpar performances by their respective offenses. This battle may very well determine the fate of the division.

On this week’s episode, Schulze and I touched on a number of different topics as we head to “Steelers Week”. Some of them were brought up by the hosts, while others came from our live listeners.

  • Is this a game that truly will separate the contenders versus the pretenders?
  • Who is a dirtier player: Mike Mitchell or Vontaze Burfict?
  • Does the Bengals’ offense or defense need to step up on Sunday against Pittsburgh?
  • Should we expect the Bengals to make a trade as the deadline approaches?
