What a season so far.  Won the division when we were mostly picked to finish fourth.  The effect of a great player and a great leader at quarterback can’t be overstated.

It’s going to feel great not caring at all about getting help from whoever.

My son and I were getting ready to go through the gate at an Air Force gate and pulled into the parking lot to watch the last drive online. We were both going crazy when McPherson hit that kick. So much so it must have drawn the attention of the security guys. When we went through the gate and showed my ID they asked and we told them the Bengals just won the AFC North by beating the Chiefs.

Great moment for sure !!

Franchise turning point is here.  Do they trend up and win a playoff game, or fall apart?

I'm guessing they beat the Raiders.  They could actually go far after that.  There is no true dominant team in the AFC.  Raiders game will depend a lot on the officiating crew we get.  The Raiders are notorious for drawing pass interference calls.  If we get a crew that has a back judge and side judge who just like to call everything, we could have some problems.

Carr is good at the following:  Identify that your R1 is definitely not open.  Underthrow that R1, as if an intentional back shoulder throw.  R1 is totally covered, but reaches around the defensive back as though trying to catch the crappy underthrown pass.  Some officials will call pass interference on those types of plays and it is infuriating.  What is the defensive back supposed to do?  Intentionally get out of the way so the R can make the catch?  He has a right to be in that spot on the field, he's covering and covering well.

Well, I keep predicting doom and they keep winning so I’ll keep predicting doom. Raiders handle the Bengals in embarrassingly easy fashion (think Dalton era playoff games). At least one key player suffers a major injury. A player punches Taylor in the face in a Q4 sideline meltdown. Following the game Mike Brown announces he is taking back control of the team and bringing back Marvin Lewis.

Hoosier, your post caused my PTSD to flare up which led to me seeking professional help. I proceeded to get into a physical altercation with my therapist, got tazed, then arrested for attempting to set the building on fire. The tazing incident caused me to lose bodily control and I shit myself. I was bailed out, came home and the dog was barking at me. I snatched him up and wiped my ass with him before punting him through the window. I liked that dog.

Way to go…

Exactly how I feel.  All of the stupid anxiety that I have felt the last four weeks is gone.  I can now just enjoy the games.
