      Only one reply in the last few days? Has everyone abandoned the Bengals bandwagon?

        Nope, we've only got like one or two Bungle fans on this board.

            Hey, I remember us shredding your defense last year... Lucky you we kneed the ball on your 5 as time expired. I'll bring the trash too.

            I'm still kickin'!

              I would have more discussion in here but it's hard to talk to myself

              I just hang out on the NFL board.

                  With Mike "second chance" Brown as our owner I wouldn't doubt it. The problem is he has so much faith in Marvin that those are the guys he wants chooses staying true to the BPA theory.

                  Marvin himself wants nothing to do with the trouble makers but it's not his final call...

                      You ever want some Bengals discussion I'm here. I'm a NYJ fan first but Cincy is a very close second.

                      This past weeks game was a heartbreaker. The fumble was a killer. The defense has a ton of trouble on third down too. Pass defense just gets shredded. LT had four touches, but just becuase they got in close and punched it in with him.

                      Tackling needs to improve, I think losing Landon hurt, a ton of linebackers were kept before the season but they've dropped like flies. Three guys that are good enough to start were lost to injury.
                      The pass rush needs some help, get some pressure off the secondary in those third down situations. But regardless, the coverage needs to be better, because they get torn up all game.

                      Also, the third down defense is terrible, it seems like every third and 8 or so gets converted. You'd figure they'd get a stop or two, but it seems like they never do. I wonder what opponents average against the Bengals D on first and second downs versus third, because I think the third down average would be much higher. That might be the downside to having corners that gamble like Tory James and Deltha O'Neal, you'll get your turnovers but the coverage isn't always good. The turnovers haven't come and it's been a killer for the defense, and that brings the whole team down.

                      On the upside, the line and offense overall looked much better today. Rudi was great as always but Brats went away from him too early AGAIN. I don't know why you pass most of the time with a 3 TD lead early in the third. I'll never understand it.

                      Palmer looked much better and more comfortable in the pocket all game. Chad FINALLY caught fire, more than a quarter of the way to 1000 yards in one game. He was unbelievable, got me out of my chair more than once.

                      Chris Henry seems like he could do so much more with his talent, and he has those off the field issues. He could have caught one of those passes in the endzone at the end of the game, a tough catch but it could have been made. Overall he really didn't step up and do much. Reggie Kelly didn't look too bad catching the ball either.

                      Overall a great game for the offense and the defense was crap (although you could figure that out from looking at the score). At least Palmer looked better, that's a good sign not only for this year but for future years, and Chad finally looked good. Defense should really be the focal point of this upcoming draft, and I hope they finally put a little emphasis on character.

                        Instead of making my usual multi paragraph post... I'll just say that I agree with everything you said Derza.

                        I understand Brat stayed with the pass because it was working so well but he has to realize it's not always about putting points on the board. Didn't Carson fumble the ball passing on first down?

                        Rudi was doing a great job and ONLY got 15 rushes in a game in which we lead by 21 points at half time. He should have had 25+ to milk the clock. It's hard to keep a team that's on your heels behind when you keep trading scores, you're bound to get burned.

                        Bleh, 11-5 ( :roll: ). There's still very limited hope. It's us, KC, Jacksonville for the wildcard. We own the tiebreaker over KC and hopefully we get it together and Jacksonville continues to struggle.

                        I'm still holding out hope. Hey, I guess come offseason I'll be glad to have a lower draft pick... Plus I remember last year saying that I had almost wished we didn't make the playoffs so we wouldn't have had the heartbreak of that game :roll: .

                        I'm sure I said I wouldn't ramble on, but I did.

                        11-5... BELIEVE!!!!!

                          Is Chris Henry a jerk in the locker room?

                            Not as far as I've heard. He's well liked on the field, one of Carsons favorite players. Carson and Chad are the reason he's still on the team.

                              I'm pretty sure he did fumble on first down. That play really was a killer. IMO if they run the ball that down and that turnover doesn't happen, they win the game. No excuse at all for Rudi to have 18 carries in a game where they had a 3 touchdown lead at halftime. I was watching it with my dad and it was killing us, he didn't get nearly enough carries. I'd almost be happy if Brat didn't come back next year if it meant Rudi got more carries. I did like more deep looks in the game though, it opened things up a bit and added momentum with big plays, they didn't throw enough deep balls in the Baltimore game IMO, that's the forte of Palmer, Chad, and Henry, so why not do it? Hopefully they get it together, and if not, the higher draft pick will be nice, get some defense in there.

                              Henry doesn't seem like the kind of guy that would be a jerk to his teammates, it's more his attitude towards everyone else that is the problem. Just my opinion though.
