The Official Bengals vs Panthers Game Thread...

Recommended Posts

Looking forward to the chat. Will be important for Gio to get a few decent runs with his early touches. Might well set the tone for the rest of the game.

Jebus, would you look at the commentators faces?!  It's a dickhead team having a slow start, not the latest school shooting.  Make fun of their ineptitude like you do everyone else, you 2-faced bums.

You know, sometimes I really feel sorry for North Carolina. Hailing from Dayton (as all Amish do - don't let those Lancaster PA types convince you otherwise), I look at the accomplishments of Ohioans and compare them to North Carolinians and find that there's really no comparison.

Ohio is the home to eight US Presidents (Harrison, Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Harrison, McKinley, Taft and Harding)
North Carolina has none, while neighboring Virginia has as many as Ohio.

Ohio is home to the first American to orbit the earth (Glenn) and the first human to walk on the moon (Armstrong)
North Carolina boasts that Vince McMahon was married in New Bern.

Ohio is home to more inventors per square mile than any other spot on earth. Why from Dayton alone you've got Dunn (refrigerator - for keeping beer cold), Kettering (automobile self-starter - for getting the truck full of cold beer to your local store), Gounard (smart fan - so the beer cooler can cycle power as needed), Frei (ice cube tray and ejector - so those with portable coolers can also have cold beer), Mellowes (self-contained refrigerator - so cold beer can exist in your home), Balsey (stepladder - so you can reach the beer on the top shelf), Wrights (airplane - so beer from far away can come to you), Ritty (cash register - so you can actually buy that cold refrigerated beer from far-off lands), and Fraze (pull tab - so you can open and enjoy that cold beer). Dayton inventors also brought you the Wide Strip Steel Manufacturing Process (for making beer cans), Parking Meters (so you can buy beer downtown), Price Tag Affixing Machine (so you know what the beer costs), Multiple-Array Continuous Ink Jet Printer (for beer ads, so you know from where the beer can be bought), Motorized Wheelchair and Walker Attachment for Wheelchairs (so even the handicapped can enjoy a cold beer), Isolated home/farm electric lighting system (so folks in the boonies can see and find the beer they bought), the Black Light (for cool mood-lighting while enjoying a beer surrounded by Velvet Matadors), Controller Pitch Propeller, 100 Octane Aviation Fuel, Airplane Supercharger, Directional Compass with Dual Radio Beam Triangulation, and the Learmatic Electrostatic Gyroscope (so beer-by-air can be swiftly and accurately delivered). Oh, and Space Food, Microfiche, Cellophane Tape, Movie Projectors, Movie Cameras, Movie Film and Movie Theatres, Lighted Scoreboards, Steel Furnaces, Parachutes, Gas Masks, and Ethyl Gasoline. Plus airplane ejection seats, artificial heart and kidney, automobile airbags, bionic organs, blind solo flight, carbonless paper, chrome plating, computerized aircraft loading system, computing scale for butchers and grocers, filter cigarettes, frost proof freezer, fuzz buster, glass photographic negatives, ice-cream cone, instant blood-glucose level testing, lighting system, mood rings, night serial photography, nuclear powered pacemaker, quick process malleable iron, room air conditioner, solenoid, double glass windows, laser weapons, liberty engine and fixed focus headlights.

And that's just ONE OHIO CITY! (Source: http://www.daytoncvb.com/helpful-resources/dayton-fast-facts-and-inventors/)

North Carolina has a rich history... hell, they were one of the original 13 colonies for chrissakes.  Yet on their state quarter, and on their license plates, they celebrate the accomplishments of two guys from Ohio.

 

Untitled.jpg

 

This proud state, who has given America so much -- tobacco, NASCAR, slavery -- instead has to turn to two brothers from Dayton to find something to hang their hat on.  But the funny thing is that the reason Kitty Hawk even happened was because Orville and Wilbur needed a place with strong winds, winds that blew consistently in the same direction, and that was roomy and remote enough to allow them to do their experiments without interruption.  The Huffman Prairie (near what is now Wright-Patterson AFB) offered them the space they needed but the winds were unpredictable.  The Wright B Flyer was still experimental, and their wing-warping technology had yet to be tested under powered flight conditions, so they needed to be able to test their heavier-than-air hypothesis knowing that the aircraft would not need to turn to face into the wind.

 

Constant winds.  Constant direction.  That's what Kitty Hawk NC offered.

 

And it was desolate.  Nobody in their right minds would hang out in that sand-dune strewn shit hole in 1903.  That's why it was perfect for the Wright Bros - that part of North Carolina not only blew... it also sucked.

 

North Carolina's quarter and license plates could have any of the Founding Fathers, or Dale Earnhart, or Andy Griffith, or Aunt Jemima, or Philip Morris, or the raping Duke Lacrosse Team on them.  But unfortunately, they've turned their back on their heritage and instead use the image of two guys from my home town in Southwest Ohio.

 

Don't get me wrong.  I *like* Charlotte.  I just wish city and the state were a little more proud of their own accomplishments rather than co-opting the work of folks not even from there.

Apparently he injured himself getting a high five from Tyler Eifert shortly after signing his contract.

Speaking of, I'd really like to see him score today.  Not saying anything more about it before the bye week, though.

Totally agree unless there are things behind the curtain The Wizard won't show us.  Not no where, not no how.

Makes zero sense to sign a running back when you are down to two, one of whom is a bit ouchy in the knee, and them

stash him on the practice squad.  Teach him two or three plays and put him out there if for no other reason than to

give the other two a break every now and then.

 

This might be a good fame for Auden Tate, too.  Big receiver and one of their corners has been dinged up all week.

 

Otherwise, I hope Luke Kulchy (have to learn to spell that some day) down not have a Hall of Fame performance against

the middle of our line.

 

No more missed tackles and stop McCafferty and Newton cold.

 

Worried about this one...

Lightweight, yeah.  Injuries at what should be our best match-up sucks.  Thanks again TNF.   Plenty of weapons offensively, though.    If the D can keep them in good field position we should be fine.

They are missing their tight end, Mary Kate Olson.  Or is it Ashley?

That is a plus for us the way we cover a tight end.

If we aren't allowed to wrap up & tackle Cam he will go off on us, I'm calling bullshit on applying special QB rules to a guy with RB skills.

Really good opening drive. Worrying fall for AJ. Hopefully he didn't tweak his neck too badly.

 

Turf monster bit him hard there, that was a weird fall

We're missing Burfict & Brown, LBs are getting abused.  Vigil can't tackle
