  1. In regards to the helmet to helmet bad call against the Bengals; we got away with a helmet to helmet earlier in the game. Should have called that one. I don't have a rewind of the game but I believe it was near one hour and fifteen minutes into the game. In other words, I know the refs have made a questionable call on the basis of an earlier missed call. IMHO. I'm less concerned about a bad call than making a green QB a hero. Don't get me started on allowing the Jets to score that many points. Pathetic. End of my soapbox tirade.
  2. Good: ... Bad: Penalties and porous defense. Ugly:. Allowing a green QB to beat us. Have we no shame ?
  3. Good:. One Hundred Twenty Eight One Hundred Twenty Eight is the number which guarantees we will continue to receive a fighting chance. One Hundred Twenty Eight is a tribute to the defense and allowing the opponents only 128 points against us ... "And Joe Burrow raised the football up on high, saying, 'O Lord, bless this thy football, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy.'
  4. i heard the announcer say something about that but I've never heard that until today. Thanks
  5. Good:. Won Bad:. Didn't finish the game in the 1st quarter. Ugly:. Detroit Fan's message boards right now. I was in chat with a bunch of them. It reminds me of the Dave Shula era. Funny:. Detroit fan throwing the football back onto the field. Not sure what was supposed to happen. Bags on their heads are coming out.
  6. If the reason for picking Chase over an OT was that Chase would give Burrow a chance to get the ball out sooner to defeat a rush then I would say it ain't working. Case in point was the Packers game. If by the halfway point of the season this issue has not resolved then I suggest the Bengals got this one wrong. It's early in the season and the line still needs to gel. I have hope but not blind faith. I liked both possible targets in the draft and acknowledge the reason behind taking both was sound logic. Lastly, no rookie OT would be an answer in their rookie year but maybe their 2nd or 3rd year. WR position seems to be able to contribute right away especially one that was on the same wavelength as the QB. The fat lady has not begun to sing so both camps need to relax.
  7. Stay classy Pittsburgh... So many things wrong with this video.
  8. Ugly:. https://www.si.com/nfl/bengals/news/injury-expert-concerned-about-joe-mixons-ankle-injury-he-may-and-likely-will-miss-some-time
  9. Thank you for the update. Hopefully minor is the right word. Especially considering there wasn't a thorough exam with scans, x-ray, etc .. yet.
  10. McPherson shanked one that could have put us up by three instead of tied depending on a field goal to prevent overtime. But yes, McPherson won it.
  11. I think we got away with our fair share of calls too. Several holds not called on defense. IMHO
  12. Not yet, Can't hear the aftergame radio anymore from where I live now. Someone here will chime in.
  13. spicoli was real close to being right in regards to this game being a tie.
