Anybody watching the game?

Impressions?

It was hilarious watching that 310+ lb. DT chug into the endzone after gathering in the batted ball. :laugh:

Matt Muncy is on the preseason roster for the Bengals. He went to Miamisburg High School near Dayton, and OU. He was a hoss and a half back in HS.

Appears the make 'em or break 'em for the Bengals this season will again be the pass rush and secondary.

Channel 22 interviewed him on their pregame show.

I'm not sure who the guy is they sent to training camp, but he did one segment where he read a voice over for a taped portion. It was 2 minutes of the most brutal television I've ever seen. He seriously paused two seconds between each word.

What they showed of Muncy looked pretty good.

He looked as good as always. No mistakes, led the offense on two long drives in his only two possessions. No TDs however.

I liked Skylar Green tonight, he was useful on offense and had a few nice returns.

The young guys in the secondary were weak. Hall got burnt by Calvin Johnson several times. The others were a step late

Kenny Irons had an ankle injury, I hope nothing serious.

Doug Johnson has to be among the worst backups in the league. Pray that Carson stays incredibly health.

Looks like that Rowe kid could grow into an excellent back-up.

I really couldn't care less about a win tonight, but I am getting real tired of watching Shayne Graham choke at the end of a game.

Except the regulars didn't play beyond the 1st quarter. They dominated when they were in.

The Bengals went 4-0 last preseason. We all know how that turned out. Preseason records mean less than squat.

I'm not going to panic because the Lions' 3rd stringers beat the Bengals' 3rd stringers.

It has just become such a conditioned response as a Bengals fan to see games end in such a manner... :lol:

Oh I know. I lived through the 90's as well.

No matter how talented this team gets, the memories of finding new ways to throw away games never goes away. :lol:

He did several things I liked, but it is so hard to make any judgments about third stringers during the closing minutes of the first game.

Lance's Blog, has a quote from Marvin saying that Kenny Irons' knee injury appears to be significant.

Yes he has. In 2005 at Cleveland, the game was tied up at 20-20. As time expired, Shayne kicked a game winning FG to move us closer to the AFCN division title.

That's not good. This team already has way too many guys injured. They can't afford many more, especially on the defensive side.

I hope Irons isn't out for the year, hopefully it is a hyperextention and not a tear.

The 1st team offense looked good.

Defense was just a cover two with basic schemes so there wasn't much to tell.

Ndukwe looks like a good hitter but is poor in coverage. He blew the coverage on the over the top pass.

I like what I see out of the new DB's.

If the bengals can get past the first 8 games of the season they are going to get a huge boost when henry comes back.

Kenny Irons is done for the season after tearing his ACL in his left knee.


Irons shelved for season
By GEOFF HOBSON
August 10, 2007

12:35 p.m.

The Bengals' worst fears were realized Friday when an MRI revealed that rookie running back Kenny Irons is lost for the season with a tear of his anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, extending a horrifying streak of bad luck when it comes to their running backs that began with a similar injury to Ickey Woods in 1989.

The club said in a news release that a full recovery is expected and that Irons should be ready to participate in next spring's workouts.

Irons, a second-rounder out of Auburn, had been one of the stars of the preseason in jetting to 64 yards on 10 carries in last week's intrasquad scrimmage. And flashing perimeter speed they thought would be just the right complement to Rudi Johnson's inside game, Irons had just ripped off an 11-yard gain in Thursday's preseason opener in Detroit before getting hurt on his fourth carry of the game. At the end of that seven-yard run, Irons limped off the field.

The irony of Irons' situation is chilling. In a 1995 preseason game in Detroit against the Lions, running back Ki-Jana Carter, the NFL's overall No. 1 draft pick, tore his ACL on the third carry of his career.

The Bengals drafted Irons to give them what 2004 first-rounder Chris Perry hasn't been able to give them because of his own injury problems. Perry hasn't been on campus at Georgetown College as he rehabs from ankle surgery and plans to start his second straight season on the physically unable to perform list. The PUP takes him out of practice for the first five games and six weeks of the regular-season. In 2005, his one healthy season, he averaged 4.6 yards per carry and nearly broke the club record for catches by a running back with 51. But he has played in only 22 games of a possible 49.

Just horrible news about Irons. He looked really good in the preseason and would have really helped this team. They lose Irons on his 4th carry on the first preseason game. Reminds me of when they lost Ki-Jana Carter on his 3rd carry in his first preseason game which also happened in Detroit. Bengals are without Irons for the year and they already know Chris Perry won't be back until at least week 6. This team has the worst luck with the health of running backs they draft.

He does? Oops, I got confused. I thought he was our new linebacker. :rolleyes:

I'm just stating the fact that this team can't afford to have any more key injuries, especially on defense where they're very thin.

If the Bengals stay healthy, they'll win 10+ games. But, if they have a couple more 'major' injuries they might be lucky to go 8-8 again.

I guess that could be said for every team, but the Bengals do seem to have more guys injured this year compared to previous years.

Irons' injury really frustrates me. I was really looking forward to watching him play.

It was in Cincinnati. And it was cold. Reallllllllllllly Cold.

And it wasn't clutch. Shayne's Mom could have made the chip shot from the middle of the field.

I thought that was the day Charlie Frye had a shot to be a decent quarterback in the league.

On the way home from the Cleveland game, we were drunkingly yelling "WHO DEY!" and acting crazy when my friend reached out her window and gave a man on the street a high-five at 30 MPH. I bet both of them were in a lot of pain--I know my friend was.

Has Shayne Graham made a clutch kick in his life?



And in 2004 he made the game winner at the gun at Baltimore. Shayne is a great kicker, I hope these last two misses don't get in his head. And to the guy who brought up the Denver game last year, a bad snap costed us that one.

I hope it doesn't get into his head either. This kick was a 48 yarder, it's not like its a gimme or anything.

It's like the people who make jokes about Scott Norwood "choking" because he couldn't hit a 47 yard field goal off a wet turf.

I remember that one because I had just gotten back in the car to hear the kick, and Johansenn says "It's triple zeroes on the scoreboard and the Bengals have won."

I turned to my friend and said, "You know youre team has a bad history when the announcer has to explicitly say there is no time left to screw this game up."
