How about that Doug Martin kid? Stings, doesn't it?
Choo got it, dude.
They were the last team to get a website. They had no hall of fame until last year, have only 1 retired number, up until a few months had only 1 full time scout, are the only cold weather team without an indoor practice facility, and have no playoff wins in 22 years. I don't think it's a conspiracy, I just think he really doesn't care that much about any of this. He's really not a very good guy.

I thought the Bengals played an ok game. I had an issue with the end around on the 6 yard line when they were pounding the ball successfully. After a TO it went from 1st and goal from the 6 to 2nd and goal from the 10 because they tried to trick the defense.
I hate the waste of TO's in the 2nd half. It doesn't even seem to bother Marvin.
But yea I agree about the calls, they're good enough to not need the borderline calls to go their way. That drive where Dalton converted the 3rd and long but we had a ton of penalties called against us was the back breaker. That and giving up a special teams TD.
The PI in the endzone looked like a borderline call. The holding on the Bengals looked like a borderline call especially when you consider on the same play the WR took a shot helmet to helmet on the catch. I remember thinking during the game yesterday, man it must be nice to be a fan of Peyton because of all the calls he gets.
The game on Sunday will be blacked out locally. I despise NFL blackout rules. I live next to the stadium and I can assure you that I'm not going to suddenly buy a ticket if I don't already have one.
On a different note, I wonder what percentage of Bengal fans would go to this weekends game if they received free tickets? 10-20%? I know I wouldn't consider it.

It's sort of like watching a movie where there are some decent parts, but the end is super depressing and always bums you out...
... but you watch it anyway.
The Bengals are the "Weekend at Bernie's" of NFL teams with Mike Brown as the role of Bernie.

Couldn't ask for a better start. You know Eli will bring them back though.
