Q & A with Keydrick Vincent

<b>GVB:</b> You have to be so pleased with the way things are falling into place for this team. Not a lot of love was given to the Steelers when the season started, and you guys are right there.

Vincent: We're doing all right, but we still have a lot of games to play. We just have to keep winning games and stay on the roll.

GVB: In your wildest dreams, would you ever think that a rookie quarterback could step into the situation Roehtlisberger has stepped in to and perform like he's done?

Vincent: That's a special guy right there. You never know in this business. They don't give people nine million dollars for nothing.

GVB: What about the way the offensive line has played? I guess being healthy, the repetition together is a big key. I guess that's the big key, that you guys have stayed healthy this year.

Vincent: We've stayed healthy and we know what we have to do going into the offseason. Everybody was criticizing the offensive line and I guess we took that personal. We're just trying to get it done this year.

GVB: What about you and Oliver on that side? You guys have really stepped in and played well. How much has Coach Grimm meant to do you guys, and how is it you guys have come along so well?

Vincent: Me and Oliver have been playing next to each other for a long time. We finally just get to do it on Sundays. Coach Grimm helps us out a lot, but we know what we have to do. A lot of people don't think me and Oliver can get the job done, so every week we try to show people we can.

GVB: Some of the other reporters felt that you took a little step back on the offensive line because of that situation on the goal line last week, but you guys have really been playing well.

Vincent: When you have the ball on the one yard line, that's unacceptable. All offensive linemen feel that way. We'll have to get that corrected. It's something we'll have to work on.

GVB: Second goaround now with the Bengals, always tough.

Vincent: Always tough. It's hard to beat a team twice, and the Bengals are playing well. They've won three of their past four games. It's going to be a challenge. It's going to be fun and exciting.

GVB: Keydrick, thanks a lot.

Vincent: Thank you.
