    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.

    The anatomy of creating a narrative: Decide what you want to see happen. Cherry pick evidence that supports that. Ignore evidence that contradicts chosen narrative. The media has talked about Larry O a total of zero times this year until now. And now it’s all they talk about. You’d think if he was such a game deciding difference maker then he would’ve gotten incredible press all year.

    So apparently the Bengals D line is decimated. “The Bengals lost 3-4 starters for this game.” That’s what all the media is talking about. Larry O is out and he’s our BEST run stopper. But not only that our 4 time All Pro DT Mike Daniels is out. Also, Josh Tupou was killed in a freak accident 2 weeks ago while Trey Hendrickson is out with a recent brain surgery. I don’t think we can win, guys.

    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…

    The good news is that it forces the Bengals hand. The best defense is a good offense. Time to take the regulator off again and let it fly. Win this one and see who can come back healthy on the D line for the AFC Championship game.

    It’s my son’s first playoff game as well and is he fucking amped beyond belief. That’s going to be cool to share with him. Along with that, my buddy who is retired Navy is coming in for the game as well. He’s 46 and he’s a Raiders fan. However, he’s never seen a football game EVER, so this is going to be good. I’m crazy excited about the whole damn thing !! Oh yeah, we ARE going to fucking win.

    ---I see now very clearly that ZT had a plan to manage Burrow's entry into the season - and it was a very appropriate plan. ---That said, this team's ceiling will be reached when they are able to fully turn him loose every game like they have the last few. ---Drafting Chase was the ABSOLUTE RIGHT CALL ---THAT said, seriously upgrading the line to where Burrow is only getting sacked a league average of times (say - 25-30) as opposed to 50+ is the final piece toward Super Bowl(s) ---The two games that Burrow just put together would have been ridiculous at any time in a season/career, BUT - to do it in two must win games against good teams...well. Damn. ---Chase's game against the Chiefs was the most consistently dominant performance I have seen from a Bengals player since Dillon set the NFL rushing record (at the time) against the Broncos. The difference...a crucial win game against a top opponent as opposed to Dillon doing that in the midst of yet another sad season against a team that overlooked them. ---We all know Burrow is just...different. It's the little things, and the big things. But him turning to the sidelines as Chase ran into the end zone with the 69-yard catch to pull us to within 28-24 on Sunday with a screamed "LET'S GO" was the kind of thing that felt like a football general firing up all the troops. That the defense rose to the occasion after that is...not surprising in hindsight. ---People have said that Burrow's ability to process and problem solve will only grow exponentially as he sees more formations and adds them to his mental rolodex, and, 26 games in, I believe that. ---Add in, he is going to grow in this offense with Chase AND Higgins - aged 21 and 22 - the mental connection he already has with Chase and is building with Higgins is gonna be beyond anything we've ever seen with this franchise I suspect. ---I was still cautiously hopeful on ZT, especially when he finally FINALLY cut ties with Turner at o-line coach, but it is really heartening to see the buy-in he was selling to players pay off. I think he can be a really good coach going forward in terms of results. ---I was much less hopeful on LouA, but good on ZT for sticking with him as it turns out. And good on LouA for staying with his vision. I can see the path to the D being "good enough" in support of this offense in the coming years for championships. ---The recruitment of players in FA about to be HELLA easy. And, we are about to win all sorts of FA battles that we never used to because players are gonna take a bit less at times if all else about the offers is mostly equal to play with Joe Burrow. We were already seeing that, but that's about to become even more so. Anyone else got random stuff they want to chat about? React? This is the happiest I have been in a LONG time as a fan. Pre-knee Carson probably the last time I was this hopeful. Fingers crossed.

    Here are my random thoughts for the season so far: "Fuck me, another losing season. Guess I'll drink a fifth every game and pretend to die of alcohol poisoning on the couch until my wife pokes me with the broom and tells me to sweep up all the snack dust in the kitchen." "Hey, look at that. Preseason shit. Who Dey and such. We totally won the preseason super bowl against the Bucs." "Yay, 1-0. Glad to be able to say we didn't have a losing record the whole season. Guess I'll drink extra to celebrate." "Da Bears. Guess my celebrating was premature. Here's to beating the Steelers next week or punishing my liver like I want to punish Zac Taylor's face." "24 to 10, heh. Suck it, chumps. I know the wife is asking at work if she's going to come home to a pissed off husband who's going to pout all evening. Lucky her the Steelers suck!" "Welp, lost to Cracksonville, worst team in the league. Time to go back to watching Football anime. What's that, there's a second half in a football game?" "Welp, lost to A-Aron and the Pack. I'm so shocked I could fall over and die. Wonder if the wife will bring me another beer or tell me if I want another one, to get up off my ass and go get it myself. Least my daughter will cheer me up." "Hey, another win. One more of these and we'll be incrementally better than last season! Who Dey think gonna something, something, beer and pretzels." "Jesus, that was actually impressive. Maybe Zacchy boy can get us to like, 8-9 this season. Time to kiss the wife!" "Fuckkin fuck fuck FUUUUCK!" "Good damned mother fucking Browns. Okay, well, my football calculous says that we can and will win and lose against absolutely anyone. What a talented bunch of losers. We've seen this show before and I hate the ending." "I hate the fuckkin Radiers and all that 'bad boy' shit they used to represent. Oh wait, that was like, 30 years ago. Wait, how old am I now? Good thing my wife looks like she's 20 years younger than me! I should reward myself with alcohol." "HAHAHAHAHAHA! Eat it Steeler fucks! Swept! Rot in hell Worthlesberger you perennial dickhead! I'm gonna call my brother in law and rub it in his face! C'mon, answer the phone so I can make fun of you. Amber! Put your husband on the phone so I can make fun of him! He's too pissed to take the call? Then tell him he's a bitch and give him my love." "Alright, no one we can't beat... except all the guys we lost to. Including these guys. Godamnit!" "Great, 7-6. Maybe we land on 8-9 and miss the playoffs again? Maybe I shoot myself instead? Let's flip a coin and find out!" "Hey! I'll take that shitty ass win. Maybe we land on 9-8 and barely make the playoffs this year? Maybe I drink this 8oz glass of vodka straight up instead? Let's flip a coin and find out!" "Hahahhaha eat it you Baltimore bastards! So much for the AFCN lead, eh fuckers? We're number 1! This beer is number 12!" "Hooooooooly shit! Now THAT was some fucking football! Zac Taylor if you were my wife I'd kiss you! I don't know if you have balls of steel or brains of a lizard but that dumb ass shit worked! I want to talk to another Bengals fan! But where to find one in Ohio? Wasn't there some on that message board I used to post on? The fuck was my password again? Oh hey, remembered first try! I'm sure they'll remember me, I mean I last posted in.... 2014? Wait what? How old am I again? What year is it?" "Bengals vs. Browns, both teams are playing whoever they could find in the ticket lines or cleaning the floors. This should be an epic contest to remember." And my latest thoughts on the season were, "Huh, a thread about our random thoughts. I should post something insightful, full of pertinent statistics breaking down my intricate considerations for each game so far and where the team is headed next... or, OOOORRRRR, I could drink more whiskey and shitpost instead. Fuck yeah!" Feel free to ban me.

    YES, play the hell out of Trae Waynes. Every f*cking snap. Let him line up on offense as well. Seriously with the decision to sit Burrow, I think dominoes should fall around the decision. Sitting Burrow ?? Mixon, Chase, Higgins, Boyd, CJ and whatever o-lineman needs a break should as well. On defense, go ahead and make the call. Burrow sitting would make that call easier for me.

    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

    Martindale is a douchebag making a comment like that. Candy ass shot at Burrow and Chase when last time around they pretty much took it to your defense. Hey Martindale, when you get done taking both those cocks out of your mouth, do us all a favor and go fuck yourself !!
