    To be fair to Chad, the way the ball was thrown he didn't have any chance at doing anything other than basically falling out of bounds.

    I can understand a pattern in the middle of the field that doesn't get to the sticks, but to throw it to the sideline without trying to get the first doesn't make sense.

    Well, on the comical side, I get to listen to Jim Scott's scripted questions at 7:25 a.m. It's funny listening to him try to ask these probing questions when its obvious he doesnt know the name of our quarterback.

    Its interesting how little an effect Chris Henry's return has had on this team.

    Maybe its time to acknowledge that the team needs to get much better up front on BOTH sides of the football in order to start being anything other than maddeningly inconsistent.

    I certainly wouldn't be against them upgrading a few positions on the OL as well as the DL. I just hope they stop blowing high draft picks on RBs and DBs for a while. Let's get some real help in the trenches, because that's where games are won and lost.

    Re: Cincy at Pitt

    Why is Rudi still getting the ball?

    Why is Dexter Jackson still playing?

    Why are the Bengals coordinators and coaches morons?

    Why is the Bengals scheme so predictable while other teams disguise things and cause the other team trouble?

    The answer to all 4 questions: nobody knows why and it probably won't change.

    You sincerely could have stopped after the word adjust.

    This team has talent on the offensive side, but when a team makes adjustments, the Bengals don't make follow up adjustments. Its sad to watch.

    All night, post the first drive, Madden is saying 'The Bengals can't go long, the Steelers are giving them out routes and hooks, but they can't get the deep ball.' Yet over and over you see them not taking what the defense is giving them. This offense is good enough, they just aren't smart enough. You exploit the weakness and the soft spots in a defense, its really simple. A six yard hook, a five yard out...first down. Its not complex. Then when they adjust to try to take that away, you can try to hit on a long pass again.

    If its so evident to the fans watching, the broadcasters in the booth, and the guy selling beer in 140, why isn't it evident to the Bengals? I don't understand it.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    It was dreadful watching all those long pass plays that got them nowhere. Seems the Bengal problems aren't just on D. The offense didn't do anything after that first drive.

    I will actually be rooting for Pittsburgh with that one. First time I have ever wanted to see the Steelers win in my entire life I think.

    I thought the defense has played very "2005-like" the past few weeks, not great but not terrible. They have finally had some consistency after all the injuries and while they sometimes make you want to bang your head against the wall, they have been getting turnovers and bending but not breaking. Unfortunately, the offense has played very "2002-like" the whole year (minus the Cleveland and Tenn. games).
    "In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"
