    He won a race yesterday at Giants stadium even though the other runner had a head start.

    Wow, f'ing terrible. Basically 'track star over football player' personified in one clip.

      Hey, at least give him credit for running down field to make a tackle even though the play had technically been blown dead.

        I would if I thought there were even a slight chance that he knew that.

          Would have been funnier if he sprinted to the endzone looking back at #41 holding his arms like this

            FTFY. I found the "to make a tackle" part questionable.

              let's be honest, the real reason for the Bengals turnaround is this man/god:

                For those of you who didn't watch the game and saw that vid clip:

                Just to clarify, the only reason why they sniffed the 10 yard line was bc Sinorice Moss fumbled a punt which they recovered at the 10.

                In conclusion, Sinorice Moss sucks.

                You know you suck when you suck against the Raiders. It takes a special kind of suck to suck that bad.

                  I think Houston is a weaker opponent than the Ravens and the Steelers by a lot. Chicago is playing well, and maybe they're equal to the Ravens and Steelers as far as talent goes, but they're not better. And then we replay Ravens at home.

                  These 3 games, in theory, should be easier than our last 3. Next up from there is a tough divisional game against the Steelers, followed by 3 easy ones in Oakland, Cleveland & Detroit.

                  Even if we lose to the Ravens and Steelers, despite beating them in our first meeting, and Chicago takes us down. We could still be 8-4 by week 13. And that's assuming we don't win any of our hard match ups.


                  P.S. this was post 1,000 zomg
                  I was looking at the 4 game stretch as a whole. IMO it's going to take going at least 1-1 against Pittsburgh and Baltimore for the Bengals to stay atop the division, and if that happens, they'd have to win the other 2 matchups against an up and coming team with a lot of promise on offense in Houston (Matt Schaub is quietly one of the Top 10 QBs in the NFL at the moment) and then a team that I would consider a playoff contender at this point in Chicago (Jay Cutler has also been performing great aside from his Week 1 debacle). Then they have their 2 biggest divisional threats right in a row. The good news for them is the next 3 are at home, but then they have to travel to Heinz Field. I like their chances if they emerge from that stretch 3-1, or maybe 2-2 if they don't lose both divisional games. That said, the way they've been winning games and seemingly playing to competition level (see: barely beating the Browns in OT), they're not exactly inspiring the utmost of confidence at this point to say the least.

                  While I agree that for most of Brady's career he wasn't putting up significantly better number than he's on pace for right now, but never in his career was he as inaccurate as he has been this year. In this past what kept his numbers down was a lack of weapons and dink and dunk passing scheme, not his accuracy. This year he has the weapons and dangerous passing scheme but not the accuracy. I think he'll get that accuracy back as he gets more comfortable, since he seems to get rattled by pressure like he never used to, and when that happens we'll see 2007 Brady again, not the same production but that same leet player.
                  IMO the reason he's not looking all that great is because he's not getting great protection and he seems to have lost that ridiculous pocket presence that made him a great player prior to 2007. The first time I saw it was in Super Bowl XLII, the Brady of old would never have been sacked that many times and that easily, I watched him dodge many a sack like several of the ones he took in XLII just the year prior in the AFC Championship game, Booger McFarland would have had about 5 sacks in that game if Brady played the way he did in XLII that day. Of course the injury didn't help matters for him, but I think that element of his game has eroded for a variety of reasons and that's what's causing his "less than stellar" performance (which is really right on par with his pre-2007 numbers).

                    Mmm. I'd be incredibly happy if we were to get Kampman as our LE instead of having Jamaal Anderson out there.

                        I think you have to give Brady more time. He's clearly off with his pocket presence and accuracy. He still has happy feet.

                          He's still subconsciously afraid IMO. He hurt his knee, and now his brain won't let him keep his feet planted when there's pressure up the middle. He'll get over it eventually, the only question is when.

                            I'd agree with you if I hadn't seen the clear decline in his pocket awareness before the injury. I can't blame the guy, I mean he was getting copious amounts of time to throw for pretty much an entire season, but I think that really served to erode his pocket awareness and the injury was just the icing on the cake. Really the same problem showed in the 2007 AFC Championship, as well as the games in the regular season that the Patriots struggled to win (the Colts, Eagles, and Ravens all got a ton of pressure on him for the majority of the game, and he was taking sacks that he wouldn't have taken in years prior), but the Super Bowl was where it reared its head the most.

                              I remember the 2007 AFC Championship game, because Brady didn't look all that invincible and he certainly got beat up. Glancing from that to the Giants pass rush, I remember thinking that 19-0 wasn't in the bag by a long shot.
