And Gruden was channeling Brat down on the goal line.

    But then, as has turned into a trend, the Bengals adjusted in the second half and dominated to bring home the win. The Oline started keeping the Dline out of the backfield, the D held the Browns to a FG, started getting sacks and hits on McCoy, and the tide turned.
    Apparently you haven't watched many of the Bengals games this season. Gruden has been fantastic (yes I used that term) with his halftime adjustments. And the DLine gets better as the game goes along because Zimmer has been using an 8 man rotation when they are all healthy.

    If there is any complaint about this team is they take a while to get into the flow of the game. They find themselves behind in a lot of games with a hole to come out of. With both Pittsburgh and Baltimore they just ran out of time.

    I think you might have misread what I said. I said exactly what you said in the first paragraph about the second half. I said "as has been the trend," which has been struggle 1st half, adjust and dominate the 2nd half. The 1st half was simply butt ugly by the Bengals. Fail to score from 1st and 5, give up 17 first half points, let Hillis run through gaping holes, unblocked defenders in the backfield on half a dozen plays...

    OK, so WHY is Jimmy Graham's MNF catch ruled a TD but not Jermaine Gresham's from two weeks ago?

    Edit: Nvm. Apparently Graham was a few steps outside the end zone. Zzz...

    21-0 game already out of reach. Time to regroup and get healthy.

    Once that TD got called back for a false start on Green this team was done.

    Gut check time for Dalton here. What can he do with this team when they are getting pummeled in ready to throw in the towel.

    Bengals need a new kick returner.

    Punt return TD nice block in the back on the replay by the Steelers. 28-7, just not our day folks.

    I waited, waited, waited for the flag. Where's the flag? And the PI was cheesy too. So, thanks to two big calls, this looks like a blowout. Gotta love the old NFL. Oh, and guys on both sides, please quit posing and play football.
