Default The game that has been long over due

This is the game we should have seem vs the Fins, Browns and Steelers.
On offense the ball distribution was well balanced. Sanu should have been targeted this much weeks ago.
The o-line was stout in the pass blocking today. Shut out the best front 4 pass rush wise in the NFL.
Rey Maualuga finally played like we expected of him. Downhill and aggressive.
Pat Sims was a huge factor today.
Carlos Dunlap gets my game ball.
and Atkins,was his typical disruptive self.

I love how big Sanu was today. The kid is going to catch anything thrown in his area. He is going to open it up for AJ down the stretch. I wish they used him more last week like they said they were going to. Either way I'm excited to see what the rest of the season has to offer. Before we know it the team is going to be 6-5 and in the chase for a wildcard.

Amen. Been soooo long since we dominated a game. We played Jacksonville pretty well this season but didn't feel like a blowout or completely dominating. We play Kansas City next week so no reason we shouldn't dominate that game also. Especially since (like the Giants) we don't play them often. Wish Marvin Jones could play because Sanu and him could be the future of our receiving core with AJ and Hawkins.

Man if we can just get Jones on the field and get Tate off of it. Could be HUGE.

Just what i was thinking.

Less Tate the better.

The guy is so inconsistent. He can break some returns but he holds the ball like a loaf of bread out there.

I would have benched him after the fumble today.

I want to see more Marvin Jones as the season goes on and more Sanu and Peerman.

Best game since Chicago in 2009, that's for sure.

I am eating crow. I was talking junk because I didn't want to get disappointed again. Happy that we played as well as we did.

Maualuga looked not good, but GREAT today. Yes, I said it. Rey played a great game.

I wonder if Zim ripped his arse big time this week.

I actually saw some passion, desire and a MIKE that was trying to hit people.

nice win....still only had 275 total yards and 2.7 ypc....as long as we only need 15 yard drives for the rest of the season, we shouldn't lose again. 4 td's to 4 different receivers is nice to see. hopefully a glimpse of improvement to come.

Yeah, if he keeps this up, I can see us re-signing him.

Also, Lamur looked very good again today.

I'm a Rey hater and I will admit as well, he played a great game today.

After that first series the coverage shifted to AJ as usual. It was great to see the other WR take advantage of that and make the defense pay. Sanu about time they got him in there.

I still like Burfict for the future but you could be right.

I like Lamur, guy is fast and can tackle.

Still no Moch though, whats up? Could put this pass rush over the top.

I think Burfict might be good at SAM. He played pretty damn well himself today.

Moch might never make it back. I hope they figure out his issues and get him back to normal though.

Burfict looks like he can play all the spots this is true and if Lamur keeps it up he could be a decent WILL.

Lawson i saw made one nice play today but i have not been impressed with him lately.

Hope you are wrong on Moch, can't teach speed and he is the fastest backer ever to come out of college according to his forty times.

Yeah, that was a nice grab by Hawk too.

Fun game all the way around.

My game ball goes to Adam Jones though. Guy was great out there today as was the entire Defense.

Long overdue to see a dominate performance like this one. I can't remember the last time the Bengals looked so solid and on point as they were today. It just seemed like a different team. They reeked of confidence and it showed. I'm hoping they ride this train for a while. Now what concerns me is a terrible Kansas City team. Are they going to play down to the level of talent, or will they dominate and win big like they should? We will see. Until then, man it was nice to see a dominating effort on both sides of the ball. So many players stood out for solid play. Keep it going guys.

Agree with everything. Add Adam Jones to your list. His best game as a Bengal. Hats off to Newman too. Amazing what tough coverage and a wicked pass rush at the same time can do.

To Zim and Jay, love the aggressive play calling. Keep it coming.
