On the flip side, we may actually see Carson throw the ball a bit in the 2nd half. I'll tell you what, I absolutely despise Bratkowski. He's a complete predictable moron. And, nice calling at the end of the half there, jackass.

The Bengals are a good football team, but they're clearly not yet in the class of the elite. The Vikes are just better at just about every aspect of the game.

Bratkowski is not a terrible O-coordinator, but I hope they go another direction next year. He's not the guy to get them to the next level.

When does Marvin start to take some of the blame for this?

Year after year, game after game, this is an undisciplined team that shoots themselves in the foot with penalties and fails to show up in important games.

I know a lot of people are grateful that Marvin has gotten the team back to respectability, but I truly think any coach can go 8-8, 11-5, 8-8, 7-9, etc. with a QB like Carson Palmer. I'm really not that impressed.

The Bengals are terrible offensively right now. The O-line is weak in pass protections and the play calling is down right horrendous at times. You just have to shake your head sometimes when you see run after run stopped in the backfield or line of schrimage and no downfield pass attempts.

The play calling at the end of the first half had me so angry I turned off the TV. Why call a time out to get the ball back then try two short yardage plays with no chance of getting down field? Just terrible.

At what point do the penalties start to reflect badly on the coaches instead of the players? It is clear that this team is not a disciplined as it should be IMO. That starts with Marvin as far as I'm concerned.

They have one or two good drives per game which isn't going to get it doen vs. the elite teams. It's almost like Brat sees something that works and decides not to use it again. As far as I am concered there is no excuse for 8, 9, 10 penalties a game. It is a sign of a very undisciplined team. I would be all for Zimmer taking over at the end of the year.

As a vikes fan, I thought this game would be a tough test. Based on what I read on this board, the Bengals have an elite QB, ran the ball well, stopped the run and defended the passing game. I saw little evidence of 3 of those 4 things. This was an easy win.
Palmer's not an elite QB.
The Bengals running game has good numbers, but they can't run the ball when they need to.
The Vikes O-line was a lot better. Sorry, but this is the weakest run defense I have seen against the vikes since the Lions
You have some good corners and did a good job defending the pass - Brett was stymied a lot. I was impressed although it would have been a lot harder if our best receiver, Harvin, had played.

Oh, and the Ocho's trash talking seems to have influenced a lot of players on your squad. That's a bad influence. The Bengals have a lot of "dirty play" penalties. From what I saw, it only fires up the Vikes more.

Injuries are killing them, and the Vikings were an awful matchup for a team that likes to run the ball and has trouble throwing.

They'll do better against San Diego I think, might not win because it's tough to travel out west and win but they match up better with the Chargers.

Peko being out is a game changer, and the secondary is awfully thin, not really sure what they are going to do about that. And the penalties aren't going anywhere anytime soon, that's what happens when you have an offensive line that isn't very good. They are trying to get every advantage they can, and that gets flagged sometimes.

Things kind of snowballed this week, it happens, but I am guessing that'll be the worst game they play in the regular season. To say this is the worst 9-3 team ever is ignorant, but most people don't put enough value in a solid defense and good running game.

Okay Carson getting hit way late was laughable. It was stupid by Minnesota's defender and it should have been a penalty, but the Italian soccer team looked at that one and came away impressed.

He was shoved, took two steps and then apparantly a sniper took him out.

I know this has been mentioned over and over but I just wish Brat would be more creative. I don't mean run or pass because I'm pretty sure it's been close to 50/50 with respect to that. Look at the play Chad scored on, they fake a reverse and Winfield bites-leaving a wide open left side of the field for Chad. Now why can't they throw things like that in there more often?:confused:

Being smarmy about the Bengals faults (Gee whiz...they have faults? I did not known that!) makes you no friends here.

Palmer...like Fouts in 1986-87...is not good at ball control passing. But this is what they have to deal with now. However.... if they are that great at running then why could they barely average 3 yards per carry against DET while BAL goes off with 300 yards rushing on 48 or so attempts?

Heck even Flacco threw for 230 yards. On 13 completions. You think they did not go over the top a few times to help that running game?

I only got to listen on the radio traveling home from Southern Ohio, but it sounded like the Vikes were on their game and the Bengals did very little right all day. The offense is missing Chris Henry more than I thought they would.

This team does have talent. If they could cut down on the mistakes, improve the play calling, and if everyone was healthy, they could be very good. That's alot of ifs though and not alot of time to fix the problems for the playoffs.

If the Bengals are the worst 9-4 team in the league, then Indianapolis is the worst undefeated team in the NFL. Especially when you consider Manning threw three picks and the Colts allowed Brandon Marshall to catch 21 passes to set an NFL record.

I think this game will help us get ready for the Chargers. We need that game more than we needed this one, IMO. We still can land a first round bye.

In regards to your comment about the Bengals run defense... they held Adrian Peterson to 3.7 yards per carry. Not too bad huh?

The defense wasn't at fault today. The offense was atrocious. And while Palmer was bad, he's throwing behind a line that can't block and receivers who can't get open, so he can only shoulder so much of the blame.

With all due respect, your opinion of the Bengals would be more valid if you'd watched them play all thirteen games instead of basing your opinion on their worst game of the year. You made some pretty broad, sweeping judgments based on seeing 1/13th of their season.

As someone mentioned earlier, similar judgments could have been made about the Vikings following the Cardinals game last weekend. Those judgments would have been just as inaccurate.

The Bengals haven't led the NFL in fewest points allowed by accident or by doing it with smoke and mirrors. The Vikings were playing at home, were coming off their worst showing of the season, and were on top of their game. The Bengals failed in every facet of their game, and ran into a buzz saw. It happens, sometimes even to teams that end up winning the Super Bowl a few weeks later (not that I'm predicting that for the Bengals). But it doesn't negate their accomplishments in their previous nine wins.


I was impressed although it would have been a lot harder if our best receiver, Harvin, had played.

Yes, and it would have been a lot harder for the Vikings if our best deep threat, Chris Henry, or the NFL leader in sacks (at the time), Antwan Odom, or DT Domata Peko had played. Injuries are all around, it seems.

I think it is the perfect storm of craptitude. Bad pass blocking OL, no true deep receiving threat, difficulty finding a passing rhythm with the emphasis on rushing and Bob Bratkowski. (Not neccessarily in that order.)

Amazing stat of yesterday.

1 sack allowed by the Bengals.

This team as finally reached the point that the injuries have caught up. When Chris Crocker went down, the defense seemed to soften. A quick look at what was missing.

Roy Williams
Chris Crocker
Domata Peko
Antwaan Odom

Both safeties, and the two best defensive linemen. Not too many teams can withstand blows like that and still play adequate defense. I think it is safe to say that unless Crocker and Peko come back this team is in a world of hurt.

I think it is time to bring in Joey Galloway. I thought it was a stupid idea three weeks ago, but now am sure that it would be a good idea. Opposing defenses do not have to defend a deep threat, not named Ochocinco, and his game isn't going vertical. Safeties are crowding the box, and playing the run and the short passing game much better. Without Chris Henry opponents are now teeing off on the Bengals offense.

Bring in Joey Galloway.

Galloway won't help if A) Palmer only has 0.8 seconds to throw the ball and B) Bratkowski refuses to call downfield passing plays.

I wish I could see actual game film, it's impossible to tell from watching on television if guys are getting open or not. And of course the announcers aren't going to bother telling you something pertinent like that when they could be talking about how much fun Brett Favre's having instead.

It would have been nice if this was a better game, but as far as the playoffs go, it meant very little.

The Bengals still control their own destiny. Win out (@SD, KC, @NYJ) and they get a 2-seed and a bye. Lose to SD and it doesn't matter. They will host a WC game.

The way I look at it is - as of now, the Bengals could be just 5 straight wins from the Superbowl.

One week at a time. This next game is THE biggie.
