Calling all Bengals Fans

Postby black_hawk8888 » Fri Oct 21, 2005 1:35 pm

C'mon Guys! Anybody excited about the game this weekend???

Carson will pillage and destroy that weak Pitt secondary and if our shaky run D can hold down the Bus, Natti is well on its way to a AFC North title.

Can I hear a Who Dey!!! }:-) ;-D

6-1, here we come! ;-D

I usually get the Pitt/Cincy games in Philly, but since Philly plays an AFC team, that game is on CBS instead of Cincy. :-t :-t
I have only gotten to see the Jax game live so far.

I guess I'll have my eyes on Gamecenter again. Who DEY! ;-D

Im still waiting for the Bungils to destroy the Steelers. You are living in a dream world buddy. Bengils are young yet. They have a good start to build a good team, but they are far away from that yet. Better luck next time. Get em next year.

Signed,

Mr Pittsburgh Steeler

Tough day guys. The unfortunate thing is that Roethlisberger will be touted as much better than Palmer. Steelers are so much better in every aspect of the game that Palmer has to be perfect. Burger rides his D and the running game. I knew it was over after we choked on the first drive. Young team is emotionally fragile - oh well, the future is bright - we limited them on offense and played well on special teams. Palmer had one bad throw and one crappy bounce.

We are gonna be good...really good eventually. Forget about this one and focus on GB next week. If you told me that we would have a shot at 6-3 or hopefully 7-2 at the bye, I think we all would have gladly taken it. ;-D

i think special teams was kind of a letdown, frankly. graham missing that kick...and one of the other kicks was poorly snapped! seemed like every punt and kickoff was reeeally short.

again, however, the primary detractory theme is poor tackling. no opponent should ever bother to pass. just run the ball. and now our defense is even more banged up...madieu out for the season! i think the road's about to get a lot tougher. i'm bracing myself for some hard times in the near future.

I was actually impressed with the tackling compared to the Jacksonville game. Much improved IMO. I thought the defense did pretty well considering the turnovers and short field it had to work with (Pittsburgh had an average starting spot of their own 45 I think). The offense choked and I put it on the coaching and offensive line. Poor playcalling - never did we see Palmer take one shot deep down the field to stretch the D part of that was due to the fact that he didn't have enough time in the 2nd half to do so. In order to make the playoffs and win, we have to develop a smashmouth attitude on defense and open the playbook a bit more on O.....

When CJ's TD was called back, Henry dropped 6, and Graham missed the FG I knew it was over :,-(

Tough loss. I got frustrated at the game and proceeded to imbibe too many $6.00 beers. So, not only was I feeling rough over the loss to the Steelers Monday morning, but I also had a pounding headache at work. We should've run the ball more, and some better execution could've made it a different game. Still, the Steelers won and have the bragging rights currently. I can't wait to play them again this year. We are a better team than we showed on Sunday. We are going to have to learn to stop the run though, or there will continue to be limitations to our potential. Still though, I'm optomistic about this team.

losing madieu hurts worse than most people are acknowledging. i maintain that poor tackling is at the center of our poor run defense. we have tons of guys making early contact, only to slip harmlessly into the runner's wake.

if you can touch 'em, tackle 'em.

obviously, it's harder for the bengals to run the ball when playing from behind early in games. the clock becomes too much of an issue.
