Morning take: Black-and-Gold day in Pittsburgh

Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories in the AFC North:

Morning take: This is further proof that few pro sports teams are woven into the city's fabric quite like the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Morning take: We've liked Alex Hall since minicamp. Now "Kamerion Wimbley-lite" gets a chance to show what he can do.

Morning take: Guess which team just received additional insight on Cincinnati's offense for Sunday's game?

Morning take: Win and produce, and Mr. 8-5 can do whatever he wants. Lose and play poorly, and there will be some finger-pointing his way after drawing so much attention.
