    One down. Two to go.

    Wow. This team should be at least 10-4.

    Boy, did this game turn around. Eagles self-destruct.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    A win is a win, and this one somehow turned into a blowout.

    Good deal.

    The return of Kyle Cook?

    Why is the OL getting burned so bad by this 4 man rush? Wacky.
    Guys not quite getting open is part of the problem. The Eagles have some stud linemen.

    What a laughable game. This team has the talent to be 10-4, but the coaching to be 7-7.

    I dunno if we're that talented. I think we're getting a lot out of guys who weren't supposed to be this good.

    No one seemed to believe they had the talent to be 10-4 early in the season. In fact, pretty much all I saw here was doomsday prophecies about this team.

    They very easily could be 10-4, but to be where they're at with a lot of holes on the roster seems fair.

    Re: 2012-2013 Bengals Discussion

    Unbelievable they went from 3-5 to 8-6. That is just so un-Bengal like.

    I kept reminded myself during the game that you can't make any conclusions from a four day turnaround game on the road. I think it makes for a sloppy football game, and the Eagles emphasized that pretty well.

    Things that do concern me though:

    - I do not like rotating centers every two series. I'm guessing they'll keep doing it, but I don't think it is helping things.

    - Losing Chris Pressley sucks so much. I hope they pick up a fullback and don't just use Brian Leonard or a tight end.

    - Something is up with Clint Boling. Illness or injury or something. You don't go from being invisible all year because you're doing your job fine to this noticeable overnight without something going wrong I don't think.

    - The Bengals have no receivers getting open other than Green right now, which isn't helping Andy Dalton. Sanu was the answer to that and they badly need someone else to step up now.

    The Bengals won a sloppy game in convincing fashion. The defense gave up 13 points, 6 of them when the Eagles were handed the ball in FG range. What I find annoying is a lot of national pundits, Mike Mayock and Stink are blasting the Bengals for playing a poor game. My question to them is, how often are Thursday night games good games? Your body just starts to feel better. Players who would be held out of practice that day are forced to play. Its was a stupid idea by the NFL to market their network and make more money. When college teams play a Thursday night game they have at least one more day of rest and often the team has a bye the week before.

    The Good:
    The defense, AJ Green, BJGE
    The Bad:
    Andy Dalton, the OLine
    The Ugly:
    Ben Tate, the other WR's.

    Well the Colts sure didn't look like a playoff team when they got demolished by the Patriots, and when Pittsburgh was fumbling the ball all over the place against the Browns they weren't a playoff team either. If we are gonna take heat for a 21 point win during a short week on the road I'll gladly take it

    Our biggest problem was protection. Dalton didn't play well, but we didn't do him any favors either. Our O-Line has been playing so well that I don't think it's a trend, just a bad game. Apparently Whit was sick? Andre Smith wasn't Andre Smith...heck even Zeitler was noticeably bad. I don't think it's a problem going forward, well I hope not.

    One other observation. Does Gresham getting a holding penalty every game? It feels like it. I'd be curious to know how many he's had so far this year.

    Messenger Centers? Who's Wicky Wacky idea was this? I mean I did not like messenger Guards when Paul Brown did it but he was Paul Brown. I mean how can you mess with the chemistry at the heart of the line basically, with Robinson was playing well to fit in someone who is not ready.

    I thought they would beat Miami and Cleveland (twice) but lose in SD and in Philly. Did not expect those 2 teams to have such bad years.

    Oh my goodness, Mayock was unbearable. His defense of his draft guru miss on Burfict--"no one drafted him, therefore my 'he's undraftable' was correct." Or, all the teams AND you were incorrect. He would have been a good draft pick and the team that picked him would have looked like geniuses if they had done so.

    He made me miss Dan Dierdorf---well almost.

    With that said, the last two games have shown that a smart betting man wouldn't bet on the NFL. The Bengals play decent against the Cowboys, lose on two 4th qtr drives. They stink up the joint for half the game last night, win by 21.

    The O-line performance, I'm guessing that the Eagles line either had a trick up their sleeve or it was just a bad matchup. It was too bad to be that the Oline suddenly stinks.
