    Instead of actually discussing this, here's a GIF of a woman tying a corset.

    Good: 1. Dalton is back on the form that we saw pre-injury in 2015. Him establishing a psychic connection with Boyd is gonna be huge for the team going forward. His last throw to win the game was into a pretty damn tight window, I didn't appreciate how tight until I saw a shot from behind the play. If his receivers would stop popping balls in the air leading to INTs, that would be nice. 2. Boyd looks as much like Housh as we have seen since Housh left. Devastating weapon to have, the ability to move the chains in big spots. REALLY hard to find a guy like that. 3. Gio, but still glad to be getting Mixon back. Gio being gassed/dinged on final drive and unavailable points to why he isn't an ideal #1 back. 4. Mixon's being a genuine teammate. Man, was he into that game on the sideline, all game, before the sprint to celebrate with Green at the end. 5. Uzomah. I think he can really help make Eifert's loss not as devastating. He looks much more comfortable downfield than he used to, and that was a huge catch on the final drive. Bad: 1. Officiating. I can't even. And that's across the league, but in Bengals games. the bad calls always seem to be at us. 2. The tackling. Given how the NFL wants offense, you have to at least do the fundamental things well, and their tackling has been too sloppy. Getting Burfict back should help. Ugly: 1. The Eifert injury, obviously. Bottom line, the first four game schedule the league handed the team was brutal and unfair, three of four on the road and all against top tier NFL qbs. The only home game not even on a Sunday and on short rest against a rival. That's crap. And they came out of it 3-1. That's amazing. Hopefully a return to health from Mixon, get Price back soon, and Burfict and being at home and they can build on this now. Hard not to be a little giddy. That was the exact kind of game yesterday they NEVER seem to win (shoot-out, and with adversity to boot).

    Jeez Louise with the hostility on here... Personally I felt they lost the game at other moments: Taking a 7-0 lead and allowing them to score 14 unanswered. Why? Why not put a foot on their throat. Having to punt due to A.J. Green and Cody Core. If Cody Core is running routes, that tells you that you should be running the ball. Our guys dropped the passes, there guy made an unbelievable play to score a TD. That’s why they win. Dropping interceptions. Despite having no pressure for the entire 60 minutes, Ben still manages to gift us 3 interceptions. We dropped all 3 (Burfict, Jackson, Dennard). On top of that, we forced a fumble and didn’t recover it. Being Marvinized every 3rd quarter. What’s the point of deferring when we may be the worst 3rd quarter team in football. WE HAD 4 YARDS IN THE 3rd QUARTER. Who deserves to win a game when you do that? snapping the ball with 17 seconds left on the play call on the final drive. Just why? Dalton has to be smarter than that. Time was NEVER going to be an issue. Let the clock run down to 1 second and get the game to underca minute. It comes down to Marvin Lewis’s teams never making the big plays when needed. The Stealers always make them against the Bengals.

    Another injury update: Joe Buck is still butthurt over the bengals winning. He's day to day.

    AB flops and Burfict should've been cut? And after he had a pick to put the game away. Only to have it fumbled away. Typical Catfish post.

    LMAO at "history of fan brutality against players"... Bruh.. Bitch Boy found some garbage on his lawn, just like I'm sure many of us have at some point for various mundane reasons; stray dogs, possums, RACCOONS, high winds, dickhead neighbor kids, etc.. And you cuss to yourself and go clean it up. Bitch Boy immediately assumes it just HAS to be about him, because god knows the sun rises and sets on his golden head.. But OK, let's assume it was some shithead fans, I guess it's possible. So Fucking What. Tell your gardener to take care of it and wipe your tears away with some crisp Benji's. "Fan Brutality"?! Seriously? It wasn't a fucking al-qaeda car bomb ffs, get a grip. Also while I'm not exactly on the Cincinnati Booster Committee your constant bashing of it comes off really forced. You haven't lived here in years so, 1, you really don't know wtf you're talking about and 2, it's the same old shit of person who has lived in one place their whole life shitting all over it when they leave. It makes me wonder who you are really trying to convince, ya dig? I've moved around quite a bit and never spent much time bashing the last place because I was happy with the new one. Just saying. Love ya buddy but it really sounds like all this anger and animosity is misplaced. I'll leave it at that.

    They need to play better. They need to coach better. WE need to post better. It's partly OUR fault. I personally plan on posting harder & better that way going forward and so forth.

    I know this was touched on briefly elsewhere - but - does anyone else think Cam Newton is one of the biggest douchebags in the NFL? He clearly calls his own number inside the 10 so he can have a chance to score and pose for all his adoring fans. Couple that with his whiney puss attitude after the superbowl loss and you have a special case of douche. I've been chewing on this one since Sunday.....had to regurgitate!

    I never was pissed that Palmer left. At the time I really thought he was mentally broken and/or another big injury away from calling it quits. Teams always keep QB's way longer than they should and I really did not look forward to Palmer hanging around several more years. I thought when Carson wanted to leave it was an easy way to cut the cord. I guess I am one of those people that always felt if you don't want to be a Bengal then fuck you..hit the road. Honestly, since Palmer left, I never gave the guy much thought and really did not pay attention to his career later on. I still don't know what the guy accomplished that made people think anyone would actually care to watch a tv show about him?

    My thoughts: 1. Every penny paid to Atkins and Dunlap was earned for past performance and justified for future performance. It is RARE to have two such talents on one team for as long as we have had those two. We have been spoiled. Atkins is a monster on the interior and Dunlap's ability to turn it up in big spots and late has been his trademark for a long time. We are lucky to be able to experience them on our favorite team. 2. Given not having Eiftert, Ross and Gio, I thought Dalton was really good in this game. The first pick was unfortunate, as AJ was held and knocked off his route and the safety made a nice play late, but take that away, and Dalton made a LOT of plays under duress. Earlier versions of Dalton would have thrown three or more picks in that game, and fumbled too. He did a great job not letting it get out of hand, and made huge throws late. The play to Mixon for the TD to get them back into the game was very much new Dalton. I still want to give a ton of credit for that to Alex Van Pelt's coaching. 3. Mixon is the first genuine closer at RB we have had in awhile. Having a guy who can close out games in the 4th quarter at RB is a huge luxury. 4. They still need to tackle better. 5. William Jackson looked more like himself this week. Should have had a pick 6 early, hopefully he is over his early funk. 6. Just nice seeing 55 back on the field. The defense is just more settled when he is out there making plays. 7. Would like to see Simmons get the special teams issues addressed ASAP. Need to stop giving points away there. 8. They definitely (and especially Boyd) missed having Ross on the outside to put extra stress on the coverage. That win was enormous. Miami is likely gonna limp into the wild card mix (their schedule is pretty soft), getting a head to head against them might be important down the road. Still no conference losses, that's also huge. Hopefully Ross' groin issue is better and he can go next week. They need him to balance the field and give Boyd more room underneath.

    I don't know who sanctioned this piece, or why someone out there has it in their head that Carson should be in the HoF (IMO, the purpose of creating it), but for anyone who doesn't want to watch it it is exactly what you would imagine: a fluff piece for Palmer and a complete character assassination against Brown and the Bengals. I mean, we as long-time fans know all about Brown and his issues, but none of us can say we weren't entertained and given real hope since 2011. Some proof of the "fluffiness": - They play the sad music about the Bengals being mostly mediocre-to-poor from '06-'10 because of Brown's complete unwillingness to try to win, but give all the credit for the '09 season to Carson. - Carson says Brown is "a very stubborn man - but I might be more stubborn". And look what that got you - a much worse experience in Oakland. But they let Carson accuse Brown of purposely trading him to Oakland because he... knew it would be worse there? Seriously? Carson's words: "He knew what he was doing trading me there, you go from one form of dysfunction to another". Ok, thanks Sherlock (fucking baby). Note that the only real positive thing they said about the Bengals in the entire piece is that the trade netted an "impressive haul" - yet IMO still made it sound sarcastic, like "the Bengals got what they wanted, but what about poor Carson?". - After spending the entire piece letting Brown and the Bengals get torn to shreds, no mention of the success they had after Carson left. None. If you're at least trying to be fair you say the trade turned out well for both parties, maybe? - The piece is edited to make it seem like Carson's return to PBS with the Cards where they won in the last minute was some proof that he was right, or they shouldn't have given up on him or he was the returning hero or... but they didn't show us blasting him and the Raiders before that, on the way to our first back-to-back playoff seasons in 30 years. Another thing to keep in mind about all this: the piece was created by NFL Films. Meaning, the NFL wrote, filmed, produced, edited and released a piece that completely shames one of its current owners and teams. I've always felt the other owners and the league itself are highly disapproving of Brown, and this to me only proves it. Now, would any of us care, generally speaking? Or maybe even approve of that attitude? Yeah, probably. But it's the outcome that I don't approve of. We're the fans. We pay for this shit. They only exist because we pay attention. So rather than allow one of your teams (and by extension, the fans) be shamed by your own employees and companies, how about being neutral and let the fucking FANS take care of shaming the team with the only thing that matters - our wallets and our attention. You'll know when Brown has hit rock bottom because the team has no fans left - until then, STFO.
