    Bengals v. Vikings

    What a great start.

    Seems like Bengals can't stand prosperity...

    When you've got a chance to put your foot on their neck and crush them, you gotta do it.

    On the flip side, I'll take 27-0 at halftime

    Point taken, but 27 to zip at the half ain't too shabby. Sure, 38-0 would be nice, but as a long suffering Bengal fan I'm not going to complain about the Bengals not winning by enough.

    Edit: What Hoosier said.

    No, they kept piling on. Its just that they could have done it a lot sooner.

    I'm not complaining at the final halftime result.

    HOWEVER: If the Vikings weren't so inept, the Bengals could have really hurt themselves with some of those dumb errors.

    Re: Bengals v. Vikings

    Did you see that drive where they had a false start EVERY SINGLE SERIES??

    You can't have those sort of brain freezes and expect to beat quality opponents.

    I'm confident Marvin will get it squared away.

    The penalties are perplexing to say the least. Perhaps louder than they expected at home?
    Still they have to cut that out, but I'm not sure if its all negatives on Minnesota. You have to credit the defense as well.

    Bengals Defense has been very solid today.


    WAYYY too many penalties. 11 to this point; 12:15 left in 3rd Quarter

    I agree and that's evidence that they're not there yet but isn't nice that they're now so talented that they don't have to play a perfect game to win?

    Remember the saying "We're not good enough to win if we're making mistakes because our margin for error is so small"?

    Well they're past that point now

    Yep. Important thing is to get that stuff squared away ASAP.

    Bengals ended the day having committed 17 penalties, a new franchise record.

    How amazing, with so many inept performances in Bengal history, such a resounding victory is the one where they set their all-time penalty record!

    The good thing about that is that it will ensure that these guys won't get complacent b/f Chicago next week. Marvin has got PLENTY to work on with these guys, and you can bet he'll be harping at them all to clean it up.

    But yeah, to be able to basically shrug off such a huge amount of penalties and kick the Vikings butt so soundly is a credit to what Marvin has done with this team.

    LOL: Pollack offsides again. Bengals cause a fumble and recover; Pollack negates it with offsides.

    Second time today!!! STAY ONSIDES POLLACK; SHOW A LITTLE INTELLIGENCE

    Moss would have tanked it by halftime.

    If they were done like they were then you very well may be right.

    HOWEVER: If Randy Moss was still with the Vikings, I think you're looking at a close ballgame.

    When Randy Moss is on the field, you are playing with some serious fire if you try and pull up a safety for some extra run protection. You fail to double-team Randy Moss on every possession at your own peril.

    Which opens up the running game... Which forces them to overload for the run... Which opens up the passing game... LOL, you get the idea.

    Which makes things much simpler and easier for Daunte Culpepper. It's like he's had his security blankey rudely snatched away and he simply does not know how to react or play the game w/o Randy Moss.

    Perhaps. But I remember a playoff game a few years ago when the Giants jumped out to a huge lead and Moss went into the tank for the rest of the game. And that could happen again whether Moss is playing or not. With turnovers amd such any team can fall behind very quickly. I don't deny Moss is a weapon and changes the way defenses scheme his team. All I'm saying is that Moss has a tendency to stop playing when his team is hopelessly behind. People will remember that and for that reason will always bring that up when comparing him to guys like Jerry Rice.
