Morning take: Palmer's elbow is fine

Here are the most interesting stories in the AFC North: Morning take: The Bengals are choosing not to go deep, which has worked most of this season. But if Cincinnati wants to reach its lofty goals, it will need to take shots deep at some point.
Morning take: I agree with this article that panic doesn't help win games. The Steelers need better execution and effort.
Morning take: It's hard to envision Cribbs getting 25 carries a game and play all the special teams. The Wildcat fits Cribbs fine for now.
Morning take: The ankles are ailing starter Todd Heap and backup L.J. Smith. The potential absence of both could impact Baltimore's scheme to change somewhat against the Chicago Bears.
