    Reedy tweets that Hall is on crutches in the locker room.

    Regardless of what happened, I was impressed with Dalton's poise and intelligence today. You can't blame him for those two interceptions.

    Edit: Leon Hall out for the rest of the season

    No moral victories for a team in our position, mainly because of how well we've played. But...we belonged. A few plays here or there and it's a different ballgame. We were without Leon Hall and AJ Green for most of the game and hung in there.

    Dalton played well given the circumstances. His receivers didn't do him many favors.

    We're gonna hang around. Call me crazy but I think today's game makes us better. Horrible news about Hall though, we need Adam Jones back ASAP.

    Re: 2011 Bengals Discussion

    Today was the first time I'm actually starting to believe in this team. I'm so incredibly skeptical that it will take a lot for me to a convert to this team, but I thought they showed a lot out there today. Like someone else said, going down 14-0 in the first quarter would have led to a total collapse in the past. Today, it didn't seem to phase them at all. I actually thought the Bengals were the better team on the field today.

    And I'm even starting to jump fully on the Dalton bandwagon. I've only watched him a few times this year, but today I kept watching him thinking there's no way this is a rookie QB. It's not the team's record or his stats, it's the things he's doing cereberally that rookie QBs rarely do. He reads blitzes and makes quick passes for 5-7 yard gains. He throws the ball away rather than hold onto it. He makes a lot of really smart plays. Maybe he really is a reason to be optimistic about the future.

    Maybe there is something to them getting rid of the problem children and it being addition by subtraction. This is clearly a different team from an attitudinal standpoint. But I still believe the biggest difference is the absence of Bratkowski. I think it's hard to underestimate how awful he was as a coordinator.

    This city is cursed. As good as we felt about our teams going into this weekend, they both lose, one loses its starting quarterback for the year and the other loses its best defensive back for the year and maybe its best receiver...

    She didn't say they were horrible opponents. You read it wrong.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    All I can say is that I was going back and forth between the Browns-Rams and Bengals-Steelers games, and the Browns game, as usual, put me to sleep. Only the Browns could find a way to screw up a chip shot FG to win the game at the end. LOL

    IMO, the Bengals are for real. The one play that really pee'd me off was when two Bengal defenders (Nelson and ?), obviously not realizing they were both on the same team, fought over a sure INT that didn't happen. I was cursing on that one.

    But your team is fun to watch. Hall is probably gone for the season, and that's sad.

    You got Baltimore this coming week who just got beat by the now 3-6 Seahawks (who lost to Cleveland 6-3). The Ravens are a Jekyll-Hyde team this years.

    1) This is a Bengals thread, not a WVU thread.
    2) Before starting an argument with someone, you may want to make sure what you're arguing about. Heather was not saying Pittsburgh or WVU are horrible teams. They're rivals and she, rightfully so, doesn't like them. For the Bengals and the Bearcats, it's horrible to lose to the Steelers and Mountaineers.

    Re: 2011 Bengals Discussion

    I'm pretty optimistic about the Bengals even after yesterday's loss. I thought they got beaten down pretty bad in the 1st half and were lucky to only be down 7, but they came out and played another solid 2nd half. I'm not used to halftime adjustments.

    There were a few key plays that went the Steelers way that dictated the outcome. That stuff happens. I could see the Bengals winning their next game against them.

    A couple of concerns are obviously Hall and Green. I think and hope Green will be ok soon. But, losing Hall, even though he stunk something fierce yesterday, will be a big blow. Hopefully, Adam "Don't call me Pacman" Jones can fill in without getting injured again.

    Next week, I look forward to the Bengals bouncing back and beating the Ravens. That'd be great.

    It was really a horrible weekend for Ohio teams in general when you think about it. The problem with football is that we have to wait a week before going at it again and try to erase this from our minds
