    Yeah I wanted to bring up that incident too.
    We all know what would've happened if that had been a Pats player.

    I just re watched the 2nd half of the game.

    I don't see how Marvin Lewis keeps his job. His team/coaches/players acted like a bunch of childish punks throughout the game which ultimately lost them the game.

    Marvin has no control over his team. It was disgusting and sad. It would have been a nice "McCarron helps Cinci get their first playoff win" story but now it's Cinci imploded in the last minute of the game.

    I get it plenty. I watched Ben finish the game last night. He'll play in Denver. I have no idea on Brown.

    When we lost in Miami, we were likely Denver bound, but neither New England nor Denver have earned the right to play in the AFCCG yet, have they?

    If the Pats are thinking like you, they'll look a lot like Denver did last year against the Colts.

    I was perplexed by the wrong direction run into the endzone at that point in the game, and I am surprised that I have seen no media criticism of it. It seemed like a bunch of other Bengals joined in too. I think there were about 90 seconds left in the game at that point: why couldn't they have waited a few minutes before celebrating?

    One thing I really appreciated about the Bengals' play was that it made me appreciate Belichick and the Patriots all the more.

    Wasn't Hill running with just one hand on the ball? I'd have thought at least he'd have had both arms around the ball in that situation.

    Do you have any evidence that Porter was "taunting" (other than Jones' instagram comments)?

    And can you cite the rule you believe Porter violated by being on the field? (Again, other than Jones' instagram claim that this was rules violation).

    ok..so the question is, who is allowed onto the field? There was an injury to a star player sand we have seen head coaches go on the field in these situations. But Porter? If he is not allowed on the field, how could the refs all miss it and at the minimum, how can you call just one penalty on pac man and not porter as well standing in the middle of the field yapping.

    Whether he was allowed or not Cinci needed to get away from the situation. Pittsburgh still had a 47 field goal to kick in tough weather conditions. Instead they gifted them 15 yards.

    I still can't believe the morning after what happened last night, could it be one of the worst meltdowns in NFL, nay, sports history?

    If this is true, this proves the refs f--ked up by not calling offsetting penalties, and by f--king up another important NFL game in the process. This league is lucky people are addicted to fantasy football and gambling, because the product on the field (and the sucky refs) make it hard to watch a lot of times.

    the refs were instructed to take the opportunity if it presented itself

    anything to make the pats prospects more difficult......they wanted the chiefs here, not the bengals

    they are dying to get Manning to the superbowl even though the broncos will get completely destroyed there

    Says a lot about the first game of Blandino's expanded role during the playoffs.

    Not at that position on the field he wouldn't. The only way that Cincy could lose that game was by running a play and allowing their RB to be held up while they stripped him of the ball. BB (and everyone outside of Deusville) knows that and would have gone kneel, kneel, kneel, kick.

    absolutely false..1:30 left, pitt had all 3 time outs left, 3 kneels and a FG would have given pitt time to win it with a TD. No coach would kneel there..You run it 3 times, force pitt to use their time outs and if you are able to gain 10 yards, the game is over. Hill ran for 7 on the play before the fumble.

    I would've ran the ball up the middle too. Hill simply had to cover the ball as if it were his newborn child
    as soon as he felt the contact; Football 101. Take a few seconds off the clock, make his Kicker's job a little easier given the conditions, run 2 more times if necessary, and either gain the 1st down - in which case the
    game is truly over, or give your Kicker an easy chip shot. And even if he were to miss the attempt, PitsDirt
    would've had that much farther to go to try its own FG.
    Hill simply fecked-up the entire process. He can't play for the Bungles again.

    Nahhhhh Burfect a piece of crap. He had bad intentions.

    Even when Brown finally got up and walked off (with the help of trainers) Burfect said something to him, you see the trainers give him the death stare.

    Me too and Dan Lebatard posted a video on his twitter showing not just him but 3 other players and it shows they went all the way to the locker room on that stupid tunnel run. Pretty pathetic for them to act like that, I so wish it would have been a safety, and still can't believe no penalty called. (Sorry was not able to get video to post for some reason)
