    Bengals vs. Steelers - Week 17

    Well so far we have seen some not so smart plays...

    (1) Steelers try a strange looking "reverse" on the kickoff. Looked more like mass confusion drawn up by a coordinator that should not be in the NFL. Santonio Holmes gets tackled quickly at the 8 yard line.

    (2) After the play above... Caleb Miller delivers a forearm blow to Holmes who fumbled after being blown down. Ref rightly calls a 15-yarder for the blow.

    (3) Bengals use a D timeout on 3rd-and-5 b/c they have too many men on the field. D'oh!

    Go Bengals!

    Bengals stop them on their 1st drive. A decent drive, 9 plays and 5:00 of clock, but no points. Pittsburgh punts and the Bengals let them down it around the 15-yard-line.

    Not much of a pass rush for the Bengals. Spmething we have seen a lot this year. Good coverage bailed them out on the last third down which was incomplete due to a knockdown by Jonathan Joseph.

    Could the Bengals be any dumber?

    If I didn't know better I'd think they were doing it on purpose.

    Holy... Palmer throws 2 bombs on their 1st two plays. Both incomplete as the Steelers have good coverage. Now he completes 3rd-and-10 play to TJ for a 1st down and 23 yards.

    Palmer just got shoved down. Steelers are going to blitz all day.

    Yep, Carson needs to look for TEs and RBs on those blitzes (ala Peyton!). Steelers stop the Bengals on 3rd-and-11 as Palmer completes a short pass to Chris Henry.

    That first play of the game, is a microcosm of the Bengals season on and off the field. No self-discipline. To drag a guy backward using his jersey, then putting a forearm under his face mask, they are lucky they did not get ejected.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Kyle Larson boots the punt into the endzone for a touchback. I get frustrated with the non-existent coffin corner attempt sometimes. Not easy, but anything beyond the 20-yard-line is okay. If you get paid to punt a football, I'd think you should be able to practice it and get decent at it. Downing it and getting a good bounce to do it is a tough thing to do as well.

    Give me a pass rush this time!

    I THOUGHT Caleb Miller was a smart guy... made his own submission for Top 10 Dumbest Bengal-related happening of the year on that play.

    And the Jets have just scored a TD.

    Geez... thanks for throwing Steelers (and I was worried about a pass rush). 15 yards on the 1st three plays rushing. Then Ben tries to go deep into double coverage and Tory James gets an easy pickoff. Returns it to around the 50-yard-line. 1st-and-10 Bengals!

    Bengals go 3 and out... despite great field position. Then Larson shows off his great leg (again) by booting it 8 yards deep into the endzone. GRRR!

    Luckily the Steelers commit an illegal block penalty while the kick was in the air and the Steelers will start at their own 10-yard-line.

    Willie Parker running over the Bengals D. 9 rushes for 45 yards thus far. Steelers are moving the ball on this drive. Ben throws to a wide open Cedric Wilson for another 1st down.

    Another reverse to Justin Smith's side (4 of them last week vs. Denver). Good for 9 yards by Hines Ward. 2-and-1 on about the 28-yard-line as the 1st quarter ends. Not a good quarter for the Bengals... but still a scoreless game.
