Default I know it's preseason.....but still

You have most of your starter in the game for the entire first half and the Bengals look helpless against the Aints! It's not the fact you are losing games, it's the fact your first team looks so freakin' bad. No improvement being shown week to week at all.

Marvin can't be happy. The line is absolutely horrid. If you have a good GM they would have known to resign Steinbeck and let either Jones or Anderson go. (or traded them) What an absolute mess!

Going into the season my big two predictions involving the Bengals look to be on track.....

1. The Bengals will go 5-11

2. Utecht is the real deal and would have an outstanding impact on this offense. I'll probably go one step further and say they he will probably be #2 in team jersey sales behind Palmer when it's all done.


Remember.....you heard it hear first......(and then all you Bengal fans except for Joe from Florence laughed at me.....)

I dunno what to make of anything yet. They looked horrible tonight but they didn't have Chad or TJ in so I don't know yet September 7th will show us something.

I was joking before halftime that the Bengals star player of the game would be their punter, Kyle Larson. The joke turned into reality when Larson was named the star player of the game by virtue of his 10 punts for a 41.9 average.

The thing that is crazy is how bad you're O-Line is actually doing. It's honestly kind of shocking.

Call me old fashioned....but I subscribe to the theory of protecting the franchise at all costs. Really, what was he doing playing that long anyway? Regardless the somehow the Bengals have to do a better job of picking up blitzes.

I agree. You would think the offensive line would be solid...a bright spot. But that is simply not the case.

Don't yall think that's a bit mean spirited? Can we show more class than our organization? Thank you.

I couldn't agree more. It looked like our O-line was playing patty-cake.

On a brighter note. After spending the majority of the game on the field...our D only gave up 13 points.

There isn't a team in the Division that looks very good at this point.

Maybe if we try real hard...we can just not be the worst team in the worst division. That would certainly be huge.

Yep...It's odd really.

The Bengals struggling with the Offense.
The Steelers struggling with their Defense.
Has the axis tilted on the Earth or something?

Did you actually see the Steelers tonight? Because the defense actually looked very good against one of the best O-lines in the game.

Comp-Att 14-18
Pass yds 144
TD-Int 1-0
Passer rating 118.5*
* -- Career-high: 99.5 in 1995

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh: wub:

Paul Alexander can't be sleeping well after what he saw tonight......


Any chance Palmer goes to a visor on his facemask for the Indy game? Maybe even a complete helmet or facemask change?

At this point...I wouldn't be surprised to see him sporting full body armour, and a can of pepper spray.

The last I heard..they said it was just bloodied, and bruised. It's pretty sad when your starting QB looks like he's been playing nose tackle.

lol, he stayed in though, shows toughness, but he was gettin knocked around a little to much considering how much money the bengals have wrapped up in that o-line.
