    Hard to put it all into thought. My son and I were there, it was his first playoff game. A big smile on his face hearing just how fucking loud that crowd was and we were at 4 games this season. Standing and screaming the ENTIRE game. Game ends and he jumps in my arms screaming for joy !! Everyone around hugging everyone else. No one leaves and just dancing, cheering, high fives all around. The walk back to fountain square parking and the streets are packed. Horns beeping, hanging out of sun roofs, WHODEY chants, insanity. Then we end up at Smoke Justis in Covington, we walk in and stir the crowd and it’s nothing but deafening WHODEY !!! Much like Stripes, voice sounds like I’ve been gargling on glass chips after drinking gasoline all day. FUCKING WHODEY MY BROTHERS !! WHODEY !! BRING ON THE TITANS !!

    I followed COB’s suggestion, got hammered outside a Cleveland convenience store adjacent to a discount laundromat, slept outside on a steam vent, and waited for Jimmy Haslam to leave (he has to make his morning runs to clean the lipstick off of his trousers before sweet Dee finds them in the hamper). I clawed at his leg, wide-eyed and full-teethed, and rasped “Keep Baker Mayfield forever, James, keep Baker Mayfield forever.” Then I bit deeply into his ankle and ejected my venom to ensure he must obey.

    The average NFL fan is… not very smart. It really shows on massive high-traffic forums like that one, and I’ve seen it on the biggest Bengals boards. That’s why I never post links to Bengalszone anywhere else. People might actually click them and register. We have a good thing going here.

    Guys I fking cried real tears as that fG went in. Too may of us fans give up on this team me included at times within 2 quarters, some after the first defensive series. This is different team and yeah we have all heard this time after time but this is the real deal. I can see a long reign for this team in this league. They just need to do one thing(this is for TJ) GIMME A LINEMAN WHODEY GONNA BEAT THOSE BENGALS NOOOOOOOOOOBODY

    I'm about to get pretty cheesy with y'all, but you understand why. Those of us attending the game all have a unique responsibility Saturday at PBS. Given that we regularly post on Internet forum(s) dedicated to Bengals football, it's safe to assume that we're as dedicated to our fanhood as anyone. Not everyone has quite the same passion, obsession, or desire that we have. To the best of our ability, we need to command our sections and keep the more casual fans engaged. That might sound snooty, but these are the playoffs. We have to do what we have to do. Break through those barriers of social awkwardness, and be a leader of people in your immediate seating vicinity. Get them standing and making noise on defense, especially third downs. Congratulate them for their contribution when the Raiders false start. Make sure it's clear that every snap is critical, and that our continued engagement even and especially during periods of adversity makes a real difference that can help the team win and this playoff win drought end. Maybe this is less necessary in the lower sections where the most engaged fans tend to congregate. But it applies as much to the canopy level and everywhere else. That overpowering drone of noise needs to deafen the Raiders and make them know without question that they will find no quarter in Cincinnati.

    Chase vs. the Chiefs. Down 14-0 Ja'Marr cuts off his route and sits in a hole, Burrow reads his mind and puts the ball on him the second he breaks off his route. Ja'Marr puts on a move that makes the Chief defender give up football and join a Monestary and then out races the entire Chiefs defense. Turning a nice 12 yard completion into a 72 yard TD. Mind blowing. Nuts.

    Preliminary disclaimer: none of this has any bearing on Saturday's game against the Raiders. I am aware. Nonetheless, it's a bit of a bugaboo that sticks in my brain and something I would love to exorcise beyond just "no playoff win since Jan 1991". 2009 Bengals AFC North champs at 10-6 7th against the run at 98.3 yards per game T7th in yards per carry allowed (3.9) Wild card game vs. Jets: Shonn Greene and Thomas Jones combined for 36 carries for 169 yards (4.7 ypc) 2011 Bengals AFC wild card at 9-7 10th against the run at 104.7 yards per game T8th in yards per carry allowed (3.9) Wild card at Texans: Arian Foster and Ben Tate combined for 33 carries for 190 yards (5.8 ypc) 2012 Bengals AFC wild card at 10-6 12th against the run at 107.2 yards per game T12 in yards per carry allowed (4.1) Wild card at Texans: Arian Foster had 32 carries for 140 yards (4.4 ypc) 2013 Bengals AFC North champs at 11-5 5th against the run at 96.5 yards per game T16th in yards per carry allowed (4.0) Wild card vs. Chargers: Ronnie Brown, Danny Woodhead, and Ryan Matthews combine for 36 carries for 183 yards (5.1 ypc) 2014 Bengals AFC wild card at 10-5-1 20th against the run at 116.3 yards per game T18th in yards per carry allowed (4.2) Wild card at Colts: Daniel Herron and Zurlon Tipton combined for 23 carries for 96 yards (4.2 ypc) 2015 Bengals AFC North champs at 12-4 7th against the run at 92.3 yards per game T23rd in yards per carry allowed (4.3) Wild card vs. Steelers: Jordan Todman and Fitzgerald Toussaint combined for 28 carries for 123 yards (4.4 ypc) For each wild card game, I only featured yards rushing from actual running backs. I didn't include quarterbacks or wide receivers on reverses etc, because I don't think that's a standard notion of "run defense". However, if they're included, the Colts and Steelers games get worse. For the Bengals of Marvin Lewis and Mike Zimmer/Paul Guenther, this problem was epidemic. It was, as far as I am concerned, the most confusing and disappointing trend of the 2010s playoff period. Even when the Bengals were a good run-stopping team, they completely shat the bed in the playoff game over and over against the run. This absolutely cannot be allowed to happen in Saturday's game, especially with the temperature and weather situated to facilitate a run-heavy game. The Raiders are probably going to lean heavily on Josh Jacobs, and we cannot afford a performance resembling anything above in this post. 2021 Bengals AFC North champs at 10-7 5th against the run at 102.5 yards per game T15th in yards per carry allowed (4.3)

    Beginning of this season: The AFC North has 3 very good quarterbacks and a 4th, Burrow, who is developing into one. End of season: Ben’s a straight up bum, Lamar is inconsistent and injury prone, Mayfield has completely lost it and is the reason a good roster can’t win, and finally, Joe Burrow got his teeth fixed and has turned into fucking Godzilla.

    I’m in the glass half full camp as well. They’re a year ahead of where we thought they’d be. It’s hard to believe the pre season prognosticators had us last in the North. And the amount of “The North will continue to go through Pittsburgh” takes were nauseating, and completely without evidence or reason. The Browns? They’re a mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in an anonymous sex act in a strip mall Olive Garden parking lot.

    It’s kind of my point I made during the season that I want players that want to win. Want to match Burrow’s desire and passion. Someone who gets pissed off when things don’t go right and wants to get back out there to get after it. CJ is one of those guys…

    Something I noticed pertaining to the OROY race… Mac Jones in 2021: 16 games, 332/491, 67.6%, 3,540 yards, 7.2 yards per attempt, 21 TDs, 12 INTs Andy Dalton in 2011: 300/516, 58.1%, 3,398 yards, 6.6 yards per attempt, 20 TDs, 13 INTs Can anyone look at a Bengals fan with a straight face and say “slightly better rookie Andy Dalton deserves OROY more than the greatest rookie wide receiver season of all time”?

    what an amazing game took a nearly perfect game - and the greatest rookie wr performance ever - from the offense to pull it off against a legit super bowl contender when our D couldnt get a single stop for most of the game, I was sure we'd lose. even with Jamaar going off. then they started getting some stops......when KC had that second punt, it was only then that I thought we had a real chance of winning (yeah I am absolutely that jaded from so many years of Bengal fandom) even more amazing was how it ended. I wanted the FG at 58 seconds, honestly, and I think we still would have won Cannot be understated how clutch that last FG was/is. A chipshot by distance, but.....one kick for the win and the division? One kick to rule them all? McMoney almost certainly has never been under so much pressure. If they can play like this in the playoffs, I can see them beating anyone One last thing.....when you saw Burrow limping off the field, did you hear the not so quiet whisper in the wind? GIMME A LINEMAN The man needs protection. Spend the cash in the offseason, and the draft capital a month or so later as well. But for now, I will sit back and bask in the glory of the 3 seed question: is the three seed locked in, or can we rise to 2 or fall to 4? question 2: does mem even love me? Me? really? seriously? this is a Festivus miracle, for sure

    It's not a big deal and will probably make no difference, but I will describe a bit why it irritates me: 1) I don't think it's behavior becoming of a winner. Being perceived as "the team to beat" isn't actually worth anything and shouldn't be the goal. 2) The rest of the NFL doesn't give a single crap about being sent a "message" or about being "shown". The Bengals themselves certainly shouldn't care about whatever messages other teams think they're sending with their "statement wins". 3) It's a soundbite squeezed from a media goof that can, at least feasibly, turn into new motivation for the opponent. Again, I don't think this is a *serious problem*. It's just something I could do without.

    No we didn’t. How many QBs suffered season ending injuries in the fourth quarter last week? The week before? And before that? Etc, etc. Lucky mean there was a high chance that something would go wrong. In fact there was no reason to expect anything bad to happen.

    Every time I hear analysts comment about how this team or that team have the best WR corps, I can’t help but think they just intentionally overlook the Bengals. Higgins, Chase and Boyd ?? Just sick.
