It seemed like whenever he was called on to make the game winning drive, he'd fall apart or throw an interception. Meanwhile, Andy Dalton can be ineffective at times, but can usually be good enough to get enough points on the board to win more than lose. Today was the first time he's thrown an interception in the red zone. That's saying something.

    I'd say what I like about Dalton is that he's out there trying all the time, which to me has been a nice change from Palmer, who seemed to fold up his tent when things weren't going his way. So for now I appreciate him for what he is and don't harp on him for what he isn't.
    I wonder what the narrative on Carson Palmer would be if that Pittsburgh DT hadn't lunged at his knee in the playoffs in 2005 (same Stealers team that would go on to win the SB)?

    I was at that game and the Bengals were going to kick Pittsburgh's ass that night. First play a long bomb to Chris Henry (a throw that Andy Dalton couldn't make in his wildest dreams) and boom, Carson is done. Felt like someone let the air out of the entire stadium.

    Carson leads the Bengals to their first SB in franchise history and he's beloved in this city until the end of time.

    Palmer was never the same after that injury. Maybe they would have a couple championships by now.

    Hope the FG nightmare earlier doesn't come back to bite them.

    Bengals defense was horrid back then. Would have loved to have seen that offense with this defense.

    I sure hope this doesn't turn into a typical bengals 4th quarter.

    So bad at playing with a lead. I love Marvin Lewis, but this is his biggest weakness, IMO.

    The same thing virtually every head coach does. He went super conservative with a lead. It isn't a Marvin problem, it is a NFL culture problem.

    I'm not seeing it. We've been pretty aggressive in the 2nd half. Obviously you go conservative inside of your 5 yard line, but other than that it's been special teams mistakes.

    No question. Usually play to level of competition under Marvin. Although, a made chip shot FG and we'd all feel a lot safer.

    This is one of those put the game away drives. Let's see what they do with it.

    They had a Patriots/Packers/Colts defense. It wasnt good, but it did what they needed them to. I also remember them being pretty good about creating turnovers at least.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    Total yardage is 411-230 and turnovers are even. How is this even a game?
