Playing like crap on the OFFENSIVE side of the ball. That was dreadful today.

This team doesn't deserve a fan base righ now. Thy should play the Browns next week in an empty Heinz Field, maybe then, they would get pissed off enough in the offseason to play for their paychecks! The offense should donate al their checks to charity because tey definately didn't show up for work today.

It was an old school game for sure,

One note;

A lot of coaching boners out there today
First Lewis gift wraps an opportunity for us by trying a very long FG, then we return the favor... Not the prettiest game, but it was a great one anyway

Just wish we could have come out on top
missing a chipshot fg, failing to score off 3 turnovers, including one deep in bengals territory, throwing a bone headed pick 6, throwing another INT in the 4th quarter by taking an unncessary risk when we could have went to OT = giving them the game

We didn't score off those turnovers because Cincinnati destroyed us on defense

The pic 6 and late int were Bengal plays too

Those mistakes didn't just happen in a vacuum, claiming we beat ourselves is an old sports cliche designed to imply the competition just got lucky or didn't really deserve to win

It was a good game and the bengals just made more plays than us, they did in fact, beat us

Grimey,
The pick 6 and late interception were more bad plays by Ben than big plays by the Bengals.

i agree that it was a tough game, but the offense had more opportunities than they've had in the entire season in a single game that I remember. All they had to make was 1 or 2 of them, and they didn't.

for an offense as hyped up as ours, and for the talent available, with a franchise qb, you need to make those plays

I disagree
The pic 6 was an amazing play by Hall, he timed his break on the route perfectly and made a couple of good moves and a nice cutback on the way to the endzone

The last int was a bad throw by Ben, but Nelson still had to make the play
How many times do you see a cb or safety miss an int? An awful lot

Yea it's a brutal irony that our defense, unable to force turnovers all year, got a bunch of them today and we did nothing with it. I think a lot of the hype for our offense comes from our own fan base, we do have a great QB and good receiving corp, but they've done nothing to justify being hyped like the pats or packers O

The Bengals just saved us an embarrassing loss at Foxboro in 2 weeks, instead they will be the ones going there and losing38-7.
