Watched this morning. Great game. Great performance. To win like that without AJ Green as well is huge for us. The defence were brilliant, and the game was coached and called incredibly well on both sides of the ball.

Crazy game. Can't really fault anyone except you-know-who. Gameplan on both sides of the ball was solid, defense stepped up in a big way.

It's all on Dalton I'm afraid now, the rest of the team proved last night that they can show up and perform against a good team in the bright lights of primetime, but it'll be all for nothing if your $96m QB can't get it done as well.

Merry Christmas all Bengals fans.

4 consecutive years in the playoffs. Wow. I know we need that playoff win, but as someone who has followed us since the 80's -these are good times.

Dalton may not be to everyone's taste because he's not a Manning or a Brady, but he's no bum -I'm telling you. You don't get to the playoffs with a bad QB-particularly when you've lost the offensive weapons we have during the season.
You do have to game plan around him & that means a commitment to the run. Hill gives us that option with the dangerous Gio behind him.
He does have to put in a performance in our playoff game-whatever it is, he can't stink the house out again - I don't think he will.

In the meantime -lets beat the Steelers - I want another Division Championship t shirt !

I cannot begin to tell you how badly I want the Bengals to humble the Steelers IN Pittsburgh IN front of their fairy waving towels and walk away with the AFC North crown....

Just one win....I wanna start 2015 off in style.

Who are we kidding. We'll never do anything with Andy Dalton at QB...he's absolutely atrocious.

Ahh well. Disappointed again.

The thing that has me more worried than anything is the fact that with the Broncos fading and the NFC extremely poor it could be a straight up dog fight between the rising Steelers and the Patriots for who will win it all.

Anyone but the Steelers please....

I still can't buy the Steelers hype at all. They've got a weak roster, an incredibly average defense and an offense that relies solely on 3 players (one of which won't be fully healthy, if at all, next week) - they're still capable of beating Baltimore who have Flacco playing some downright awful football and a dinged up secondary but they'll be in match-up hell against the depth of New England and Denver, on the road too.

Big week for us with all the focus on Green. Without him there ain't a chance we'll even be competitive in Indy. We need to magic up a pass-rush from somewhere otherwise Luck will shred us with players like Hilton and extended plays. Offensively? Run game with the threat of Green deep, that's basically all we have and one doesn't work without the others.

If only we'd drafted Bridgewater...

There are 11 players on offense...

Heath Miller continues to move the chains, and Martavis Bryant our current No.3 receiver scored a TD.

so on reflection you're wrong,....our RB depth is an unknown, but so was yours until Hill made an impact once given an opportunity.
