    I know Marvin will stay, but this really all the team will be under him.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    NFL QBs have to be able to hit wide open verticals. Dalton can make all of the throws except that one. If he can't figure it out then the offense will never take the next step.

    No flow to the offense at all in the game, Zimmer pitched a good one keeping us in the game. Secretly hoping Gruden gets the call in Philly so Hue can take over the offense. Would like to see some speed in the backfield for next season.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    I said win or lose that I would be happy with this season and I am. 3-5 to 10-6 is an accomplishment no matter who you're playing.

    Next year just making it in won't cut it. If there's any good news it's that we're a regular playoff contending team and there's still soooo much room for improvement.

    I kinda agree. I'm not sold on Gruden.

    If they would have had 1 offensive touchdown, they would have won. 3 games in a row Dalton doesn't have a touchdown. Not just him...but when he's been in the game

    10-7 last year to 10-7 this year is not progress. Just because they underachieved early this year and then came back does not mean they did well. If they had played better early, they could have had a bye or a home game

    Yeah I haven't been able to watch him much but the games I have seen he has really happy feet in the pocket. Almost like he's not willing to stand in the pocket very long anymore. I give him another season, but he has a lot to prove going forward.

    Problem is you only have one play maker on offense, they need a Robin to Green's Batman. Until they get that I think the best you are going to get is 10 wins and a playoff loss.

    He seems to give up too soon, and he doesn't have the speed to do that.

    Depends how you look at it. Sure we dealt with some injuries and underachieved early, but there's no doubt that we were a better team this year. We beat the SB champions, the Steelers with everything on the line, and played the last 8 weeks in virtual must win games and still made it in. Obviously just speaking for myself, but I'm pleased with what we accomplished this year. I was never under the impression that we were a serious SB contender. This is a big offseason though, because we aren't that far away.

    I dunno what happened to our offense. Maybe it was Sanu getting hurt, maybe it was Cook returning, or maybe it's that guys like Wade Phillips and Dick Lebeau can just outcoach Jay Gruden...but about 5 weeks ago that team would have won today.

    I keep asking myself, if this were any other NFL team, would Marvin Lewis have a job?

    Yes, Marvin is the most successful coach the Bengals have had in decades. He's brought the talent level up from what it has been in previous seasons. But when it comes to the playoffs, he has shown he can't get it done. He makes questionable decisions and has challenged some of the worst plays I can ever remember.

    It kinda reminds me of Tony Dungy. I loved Dungy as a person and he was one of the best defensive coaches, but he never could get over the hump in Tampa. The Bucs fired him and went with Jon Gruden who won a Super Bowl the following year. Dungy got his own ring with the Colts, but that was more of the situation and having a HOF QB and an offensive system he kept in place.

    I kinda hope that if Mike Zimmer and Jay Gruden get head coaching jobs that Mikey will decide to just pull the plug on Marvin and bring in a new staff. The odds of that happening though are slim to none.

    Looking to the offseason, I want to see at least one pick on offense. We need someone who can create in open space and one of the players I would love to see is Tavon Austin from West Virginia. He could be an impact on special teams, be used out of the backfield, or opposite AJ Green. Upgrades at linebacker would be nice as well, especially given Maualuga's abysmal performance tonight.
