Whisenhunt to Detroit so Zimmer is safe from there.
Our defense just got punched in the mouth. I still think this was the worst matchup we could have gotten out of the teams fighting for the 6 seed the final week.
Is it "next season" yet?
He's missed a couple of throws but that TD pass was a nice play by Dalton.
Beautiful ball there by Dalton and a great catch by Jones.
Doesn't the spike take the review out of play?
He had that longer than Bernard, this better stand.
Is it "next season" yet?
I have no idea what is going on.
Bernard's was close but no way to reverse it.
Whew. If they would have ruled that an incompletion and Bernard's a fumble, I think they would need a rule change. Bernard didn't have enough time to pull the ball in when he was hit. Gresham had pulled it into his chest and secured it, but only stuck the ball out to get out of bounds. I didn't know that rule that the clock runs if they go out of bounds backwards.
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
It was a great call for what otherwise is an awful rule. The fact is the clock continued to run because forward progress was stopped, so I think it's intellectually consistent to say it's a catch if progress was stopped and that is what took him to the ground.
The rule itself has to change. I'm fine with having possession to the ground, but if you have two feet in bounds then step out, that right there should end the play. What you do out of bounds should have no bearing on the play.
Also like what I see out of the Bengals despite the sluggish start. Dalton is playing really well and the defense played better the last few drives after being blown off the ball early.
