    Dalton was great today. Even the one pick was partly due to a good play by Tillman. This loss is not at all on Dalton.

    A $900 million organization can't figure that out.

    Marvin can't put anybody away. He gets up two scores in the third and it's over for him. They haven't invented the pass yet for him.

    What a waste of a Sunday.

    Ray needs to be cut.

    We're not going to cut our starting MLB because he made a stupid play that cost our offense the chance to go 80+ yards in 15 seconds.

    And I'm not exactly sure what you mean about Marvin putting teams away. What about today's game would make anyone think that? We had dumb penalties and turnovers against a team that's known for taking the ball away. I know one game isn't going to make me lose faith in Zimmer's ability to get his side of the ball ready.

    BJGE had 1.8 YPC, Gio had 5.5. Yet they insisted on pounding him the entire game, and actually for some reason allowed him to run outside, despite the fact that Gio should be the only player on the team running the ball out there.

    Did you watch the game? That's a serious question. I've been a pretty harsh critic of Andy in the past, but he played really well today. Good enough to not only win this game, but playoff games. It's not his fault the clock management stunk (again), the coaching stunk, the players dropped 2 balls (one for an INT and then the fumble), and all of the moronic decisions by the team.

    Re: 2013 Bengals Discussion

    Gio needs to be playing period use the Lawfirm sparingly. The talent difference between the two is huge. Loved the play of Eifert as well as Gresham. Played a little too fast at times which led to silly mistakes. Beat Pitts next week and all is right with the world.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    I disagree. Throwing the ball for an incomplete pass was much worse. If they run twice the half is over and Dre doesn't even have the opportunity for the penalty. Terrible play call there. Indefensible.

    I'm not excusing Dre for the penalty, but he was drilled in the back after it appeared he was out of bounds. If anything, I thought the Bears player should've been called for a penalty. Also, even without the penalty, the Bears still had a great opportunity, one they never should've had, to get into FG range. You can't give away points in any game and Marvin and staff did it today.

    It's a cut rate play by a player in a cut rate organization.

    You're right he shouldn't be cut he fits right in.

    In the second half they just kept giving it to him. It's mind numbingly stupid.

    It was like a 2 yard pitch and catch and for whatever reason we didn't connect. Not a big deal which was worse, but both are unacceptable.

    If you're already there after one bad game, why be a fan of this team to begin with?

    Seems like we've been waiting and waiting and waiting for him to show some kind of actual performance.

    He's officially a bust IMO.

    Re: 2013 Bengals Discussion

    I'm still very upset with this loss. It was pathetic. I can't remember a time where I thought the Bengals were clearly the better team and lost. Especially like they did today.

    They're very talented this year so that's a positive. It's nice to see some explosive plays on offense. After watching today, I'm very optimistic this team can go pretty far, but I'm not forgiving the egg that was laid today in the last 31 minutes of the game. Hopefully, they'll learn from this, eat a little humble pie, and come out much stronger.

    Which turned out to be 6 too many.

    14 carries 25 yards....he's awesome.

    Maybe it seemed like more because he appears to be running in apple sauce.
