Must be so frustrating being a Bengals fan - as soon as it gets tough, pressure is on, the Bengals shrink every single time. Dalton is the single most infuriating player to watch in the league - stand in there and make a goddamn throw for your team when the games on the line...nope I'll throw a 1 yard out 6 yards short of a first down - I dunno how you guys do it!!

Even at 21-7 at the half, I knew the Packers would come back.

When we went up 7-0 what do we do, our kicker kicks it OOB and then there's a DPI to put them on like the 27 of our field. We constantly kick ourselves and beat ourselves.

Examples:
Finaly play on the 70 yarder in OT, Jones gives up on the play because he sees the flag.

Dalton taking a 5 yard sack, pushing Bullock back who goes on and misses the FG.

But Dalton really is testing my patience now, first play of overtime calls a TO. Sure it's noisy, it's Lambeau Field for god sake! We know the line is horrific and he can't set for throws, so get it out quick on RB or WR screens or peel out (Like Rodgers did to get away from Lawson towards the end of the 4th on numerous occasions). Not once did I think Dalton was going to lead a game winning drive there at the end.

At times that was a painful watch, certainly in the first half. Couldn't cover, couldn't tackle, couldn't get open, couldn't protect the qb.

Overall, I actually think the D played ok and did what they had to do. Josh Jones is looking a real find. Allison made some big plays and Kendricks looks a lot better fit than Bennett. Never rule out Rodgers, but please can our o-line get healthy and quick.

A first OT win for Rodgers was worth staying up for and makes this Monday morning a little easier. Roll on Thursday!

Meh ... As expected another loss. The Marvin Loyalists and the less bitter Bengal fans will say how we took the packers down to the wire. In reality its a Loss that nobody will care or remember how close it was when the packers are playing playoff football.

Dalton made too many mistakes in the 2nd half and the play calling was useless in the 2nd half also. So the OC change gave us 1 good half of football.

Classic Bengals also in that WJ III played well and got a pick 6, yet he barely saw the field after that (because of the screwy special teams mistake no doubt) and while he was riding the pine, Dre was getting torched all game long.

In a sadistic way the loss is almost a good thing, keeps piling the pressure on Marvin.

Dennard had a very nice game too, made some really nice open field tackles and sniffed out a few plays before they broke big.

Dre on the other hand like you said had an absolute howler >.>He allowed an opposing QB rating of 152.1, 5th worst this week; allowing 6 of 8 targets to be caught, 92 yards, 2 TDs
