It's a short week for both teams, both having played on Sunday, once again Bengals have the advantage of being at home and not having to travel. We were at the game Sunday and the weather was perfect. They may get some rain this evening, but that doesn't seem to bother Cincinnati. I give them the edge.
We can blame the injuries for giving up a lot of points against Detroit, but the coaches have to shoulder the blame for the loss when Luck and Co. did what they did.
You can't look at the gameplan to slow their strength as anything but deficient when we gave up 200+ yards receiving to their backs...
It was a defensive coaching performance that goes in their employment file permanently.
"Not have to see the military and other super patriotic stuff"
You've truly out done yourself with this nonsense sentence.
I agree, the players have every right to protest the flag and anthem, No matter how misguided they happen to be. The issue at hand has nothing to do with either the flag or the anthem. But good luck to those who want to get future endorsement deals while kneeling during the anthem
I will say, I agree with Most of your post. I agree with you that it has nothing to do with the National Anthem protests, and more to do with alot of the other things you mentioned.
Where I disagree, and this is neither here nor there in what matters, because everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but I am of the group that happens to like the National Anthem at the start of the games. That's just who I am, and what I believe is the right thing to do.
I also like Roger, (go ahead shoot me now) but I just don't agree that he's to blame for the decline.
Hi, Nils here....
I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!
I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.
I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!
I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.
It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
