  1. They would simply have no reviews and chalk it up to human error and call it a day if the fix was in. Makes more sense doesnt it? Andy Dalton reared back to throw and had the ball just flip out of his hand. Is he in on it too? Like someone said above its laughably absurd.
  2. Without reading his response as im just getting on this morning and catching up. I can guarantee its in someway to downplay Zac Taylor and how composed he seems to be on the sidelines and in his pressers, how he handles himself and the media to exact. As if its some sort of con job or "shame on you all" for believing this bullshit. You know, typical negative Nancy shit and i dont care what happens ill keep being this way until something proves me right bullshit. Exhausting.
  3. Because they lost that game due to their piss poor execution on several occasions. Were there some bad calls? Of course there were. There are bad calls for and against every team in the NFL that has fans rooting for that said team. The inability to convert 4 out of 6 times in Seattle territory (missed field goal, Andy's two fumbles, and failed 4th and 1, add in Boyd's slip and Andy's bad throw that should have been touchdown) is absolutely what led to that loss. They dominated that game and reading it on paper there is no way you would believe the Bengals lost. Failed execution at critical times is what you wouldnt see on that paper. Listen, the call at the end of the game was horrendous. However, conjuring up the fact that the refs made that call to "protect the shield" or ensure the Seahawks won the game is ludicrous to me and completely alleviating of any responsibility. Thats just my own opinion.
  4. The Cincinnati Bengals lost to the Seattle Seahawks by just one point on Sunday. Here's why statistics say the Bengals should have won. The Bengals lost a heart-breaker on the road against Seattle. According to NFL Pick Watch, no experts had the Bengals upsetting the Seahawks. In fact, the Bengals finished between 8.5 to 9.5 point underdogs - second only to the Washington Redskins (10 to 10.5). But even with gambling Sportsbooks odds predicting a blowout, stats indicate that Cincinnati actually should have won this game. The Bengals crushed the Seahawks in first downs (22 to 12) and total offensive plays (70 to 49). Their 6.1 yards per play was significantly higher than Seattle's 4.9 and Cincinnati was more efficient through the air. The total yards weren't even close in this contest, as the Bengals dominated the Seahawks 233 yards with 429 of their own. Andy Dalton also more than doubled Russell Wilson's numbers through the air. However, the deciding factor in this game was turnovers and missed opportunities. Though they didn't throw an interception, the Bengals lost 3 of their 4 fumbles to Seattle. It also didn't help that Randy Bullock missed a field goal that would have likely resulted in the win. There's no sense crying over spilled milk, and Zac Taylor will take this one back to the drawing board. However, it is at the very least encouraging to know that the Bengals dominated statistically this game. This is why they lost the game, not because of some corrupt bullshit theory. This is why anyone loses a game. Poor coaching, poor execution. Not corruption. So ridiculous.
  5. No moral victories, but I was more impressed by what I saw in this loss than I was by any win over the last three years.
  6. did he make mistakes? Definitely. Did he come back and make plays? Hell yeah he did. That's what you want. No?
  7. This my point. This is a team whose own fan base hasnt wanted to attend and watch games. What is so shocking about people not wanting to tune in nationwide? This
  8. Also, you will find that when they were making the playoffs, they were getting much more prime time game love. Only then it was, "it figures they would put us against so and so on national tv." Not saying you were the one saying that, but there was certainly that logic going around. Cant have it both ways. Either way, they wont return to relevance until they become more relevant by winning. Thats the nature of the beast.
  9. Fair points. However, this logic always smells like "poor me logic" to me. Also known as, "hey man, why does my shit sandwich taste worse than yours?" I see both sides, i just happen to follow on the opposite end.
  10. In 2018, from weeks 5 through 15, the Bengals played 7 of 10 games at home. Week 8's bye was sandwiched by two home games, meaning they didnt have to travel for a month.....they didnt do shit with it. In 2017, They opened the year at home against Baltimore and Houston and ended the year with 4 of 6 at home. In 2016, they opened with two on the road, followed by 4 of 6 at home. Some of you cats have selective memories and just like to bitch and alleviate responsibility from the team that your root for, a responsibility which is to do one thing...WIN!! Guess what, they have done very fucking little of it the past three seasons. To top that off, they have done even less when they have won in the regular season. I have said it a million times, you will not get credibility until you have earned it. No whiny ass fan base is going to change that. They need to win and win often. Period.
  11. just sign cole beasley and call it a day....if they truly want rid of john ross.
  12. Cincinnati Bengals: Uncertainty for Linebacker Unit 7 OF 32 Also known as........... Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze BurfictFrank Victores/Associated Press The Bengals allowed the most yards in 2018. Amid the defensive breakdowns, former head coach Marvin Lewis fired play-caller Teryl Austin in November. The unit didn't show much improvement, though. The team has two established commodities on the defensive line in Carlos Dunlap and Geno Atkins; both signed new multiyear deals last year. The secondary will have two starting-caliber cornerbacks, Dre Kirkpatrick and William Jackson. Safeties Shawn Williams and Jessie Bates combined for eight interceptions this season. The linebacker unit is the eyesore of the defense. The Bengals signed linebacker Preston Brown to a one-year deal last March, and it's unclear if he'll re-sign, coming off a seven-game season marred by a knee injury. Unfortunately, repeated concussions have put linebacker Vontaze Burfict's career in jeopardy, per ESPN's Katherine Terrell (h/t colleague Adam Schefter). Fortunately for the Bengals, the front office won't have to scramble for new faces. Jordan Evans, who started nine games in two seasons, and rookie third-rounder Malik Jefferson will likely have the first shots at filling potential voids. If they don't pan out, veteran talents may have to solidify those spots.
  13. Face it. The Bengals ranged between suck and mediocre for the last decade and a half. Before that, they had maybe two seasons since i have been alive that they were relevant. Thats why they are not taken seriously. If you suck in a world where the whole idea is to not suck, you are going to get shit on. Deal with it. Maybe Zac T turns that perception around. Its going to take more than some mediocre one and done season thats for damn sure. Nobody is out to get the fucking Bengals. They have gotten themselves.
  14. Its laughable. Burfict earned his reputation. He is responsible for the target he has. No one, absolutely no one, is out to get the fucking Bengals. Its amazing how many people talk themselves into horseshit to alleviate responsibility from themselves and others they align with. Take Devin White all day at 11.
  15. People still worried about what the media says and thinks blows me mind. First off, the Bengals have done zero to change the narrative. Secondly, it doesnt really matter.....at all. Let this young buck come in and win the division and a playoff game or two and see what happens. Praise needs to be earned. So, other than some new found ways to create more impressive mediocrity (with Marvin), they've done nothing.
  16. I know ross hasnt set the world on fire. However, the dude basically played out is rookie season this year. Boyd had a decent first year, but completely sputtered out in his second, before improving tremendously in his third year. Not to mention, before injuries of course, there were plenty of other mouths to feed other than ross, and conversely, when everyone got hurt, it was on him as i said, basically a rookie receiver, to make plays. I think he needs atleast another year, under a new regime, before an opinion can be be remotely formed on him, especially given the fact that by all accounts, a very offensive minded coach with plenty of new concepts (should be anyway) is coming in. Lets just wait and see.
