Are you surprised? It’s really sad that I wasn’t surprised at all.
In fact I picked them to lose today, 31-17 and I wasn’t that far off.
I expected they’d come out ‘flat’ in this big game like in others past and I wasn’t off by much there either. That opening pick was awesome, then the Bengals gave it right back.
It’s sad that I wasn’t even worried with they were winning at half-time because I could feel it, I knew they’d blow it.
I really didn’t expect a bad snap to be the clincher.
Both Chad and Chris Henry dropped balls, catchable balls. Henry showed a little more effort, just a little but still not enough to win.
Rudi, was Rudi, he ran harder than I expected but also coughed up the ball.
I look forward to positive changes on this team for next year. Perhaps an offensive line, and a running back would be good. A solid third receiver would be nice as well but not until we get some D.
Unfortunately the Bengals will lose again on New Years Eve and finish 8-8. Go ahead write it down. The Steelers got spanked by Baltimore today and are out for sure. They are going to be fired up.
The Bengals? I don’t think they know what that means yet.
I can’t wait to hear Marvin’s feedback this week. (We didn’t play that well, and we gave the ball away. But we played hard and a bad snap cost us the game).
How many games have the Bengals had to climb back in only to lose on a bad call, bad play or bad snap? I’m sure that’s 4 of their wins this year. This team isn’t supposed to be in that position.
