    He's a great offensive coordinator, isn't he?

    Why they did not run the ball 4 times defies logic
    Not enough time. An incomplete pass stops the clock.

    There was plenty of time.

    They needed 5 yards, they had roughly 1:30-2:00 on the clock, and they could only assume (at that point) they were going to get 4 more snaps.

    If anything, they needed to be concerned about the Bengals getting the ball back AFTER a score with too much time.

    That they didn't score in that situation, as poor as the interior of the Bengals defense is in the red zone, baffles me.

    Well, they did run once. They maybe could have run one more running play, but you never know how long it's going to take to unpile 15 people if they fall short, and with no timeouts, Billick probably would rather have the guaranteed 3 chances through the air than risk being stopped short of the goal and leave a down on the field.

    After the running play, they were down to 1:25, which I agree, they could have ran at least once more and probably should have.

    I just got home from the game. What a great game. The crowd was just fantastic tonight. Up at all times and loud. Amazing that was an opening game because the atmosphere of the game felt like a playoff game tonight.

    Gotta love how the first two weeks play out. Get that tough game against the Ravens out of the way, then play the Browns. 2-0 would look nice heading up to the northwest to play the Seahawks.

    The Cincinnati Bengals opened the 1988 season at home against the Phoenix Cardinals. With time running out in the 4th quarter, the Cardinals had four plays from inside the 5 yard line to tie the game at 21. The Bengals defense held at the goal line and the Bengals went on to win 21-14.

    The Cincinnati Bengals opened the 2007 season at home against the Baltimore Ravens. With time running out in the 4th quarter, the Ravens had six plays from inside the 10 yard line to tie the game at 27. The Bengals defense held at the goal line and the Bengals went on to win 27-20.

    Anyone remember what that 1988 Bengals team did?

    Haha, just some food for thought...

    I saw it and I agree that it was terrific! That little girl was soooo cute and the fact that she belted out the tune (no tiny, timid voice there) with her dad was just great!

    Anyone know if there's a copy on the internet somewhere? Youtube maybe?

    Early season. He struggled early last year, but then was on it after a few weeks.

    The PI call, Heep very slightly pushed off to get the separation and make the catch, I've seen Chad Johnson called for more phantom "push offs" than that over the years. The subsequent defensive holding makeup call was more blatantly phantom, IMO.

    Heep was unusually the goat last night, with the ball hitting off his pads for the final INT.

    Yeah, I'd also really like a video of that. Looked on youtube, but didn't see it. My wife had to work and missed it, and she would get a big kick out of that.

    It was a nice sales job by Dexter too, from the refs vantage point, all he could see was Heap extending his arm and Dexter going down like he'd been shot.

    If anything, I would blame that last INT on Boller. He rifled it in there, and Heap really didn't have much time to react. The PI call on Heap should not have been called, but as they say, good teams don't put themselves in those situations. The Ravens had so many chances to tie that game, give credit to the Bengals D.
