Bengals at Ravens Game Thread 10/11/09

Recommended Posts

Once more into the breach for all of us, and this one a harder to figure jaunt than usual, given the wild card of the team's emotions surrounding Coach Zim.

I bet they keep it close.

I sure hope they do.

But blowing Baltimore out would be even better.

Pre-game and game chatter here.

I wouldn't mind a blowout along with that victory 31-13...

It's just so impossible to figure this one given the Zim thing, from where I sit. You know there will be an extra layer of emotion, and that can be as potentially a bad thing as a good thing. It's just a wild card factor.

Benglas win 27-20. We edge them with a TD in the 4th and hold them on their final drive as time expires. Flacco makes some mistakes.

14-14 at the half, Ravens get snowballing win 38-21. Yes, I'm a homer, get over it.

Thinking your team will win? You've got some nerve buddy!

ESPN spent about eight minutes on the game at 11:51 in their pre-game. On field report from Rachel Nichols, and the focus on Zim.

Jackson and others wondering also about how the emotional overlay will affect the game.

Tank's inactive today... Gaither's out, and Oher will be making his first pro start. I'd like to see Zim attack him.

I worry about the emotions also, but Rey said the defense with play there hearts out, and leave everything that they have on the field for there coach. Go win one for Coach Zim and his wife. Im very nervous about this game, and i hope everybody rallies around the emotions for this game and they do leave everything out there and at the end of the day they get the win. They derseve this win. God bless Coach Zim today

I am afraid they are badly going to miss Tank again.

Reedy also tweets that Mathis starts at LG with Livings at back-up and wonders why the Bengals don't just change that on the depth chart...

Per the Bengals twitter, Andre Smith did work out before the game.

think we're gonna need a big game from henry/ caldwell and the te's.

Obviously the D needs to play its arse off, and a mistake free palmer would be handy!!

WHO DEY!!

For Baltimore, Gaither at LT indeed out with the neck issue from last week. Rookie Oher slides from right to left to make his first NFL start there. Locally, they think that will be just fine and the Ravens will be just as strong on the line in this configuration. We shall see. Odom vs. Oher is a key matchup at this point.

I like our chances. I hope the defense plays its butt off for Zim without going overboard and giving up big plays.

There MUST be pressure on Flacco or it'll get ugly real fast.

On ESPN, TJ picks us on the emotion of the game, the rest of the crew picks Baltimore. Let's go get 'em fellas.

Yep Zim must call the blitz early and often and pressure Flacco all day. I would love to see some turnovers today for the defense. I worried about the Tank not playing today, but i guess they are trying to rest him, its still a long season.

O-line needs to come up big today they need to keep Baltimore off Palmer. Now lets go win one for Coach

Ah Billy, well done. I hope it's a good stream for ya. I shall enjoy watching this baby in HD on my TV though. First and last time the Bengals will be picked over here for a while probably.

One other things guys, I hate to kill it but... It's a lot to put on the defense to do the whole "let's go win one for Zim" thing. There's still a great team across from us. If we do lose today, you're putting a big burden of responsibility on the team for not winning it for Zimmer, and nobody needs that. Just Saying.

No matter what happens today, Zimmer will incur no wrath from me.
