Are the Bungles Finished?


Nati is 1-3 and fortunate to have the one win they do have. They're two games back in the division. Their defense couldn't stop a CFL team. The Browns dropped 51 on them. Last night, they never had a chance against New England. Save a nice pick by Leon Hall, the Bengals' D was fortunate if they could limit the Patriots to field goals. They gave up more than 400 total yards and didn't sack Brady once.

Marvin Lewis: defensive mastermind.

Now, in what may be a big to save his job, he's trying to get his team's shit together with, uh, a meeting!
Marvin Lewis’ anger and harsh words pierced the steel locker room doors at Paul Brown Stadium.

“If you don’t want to be on the team, don’t show up at 4 o’clock,” Lewis yelled in a profanity-laced tirade directed at his players following the Bengals' 34-13 loss Monday night to England.

Yes, tirades are always best when profanity-laden. Those pleasantry-laced tirades just don't achieve the desired effect. That many felons gathering in one place might be of interest to the authorities, I'd imagine. That's like the Legion of Doom, almost.

Of course, it's all for naught. Cincy is going into their bye week, which gives them two whole weeks to go out and do stupid shit to jeopardize their faltering season. I can't wait.

Since losing to New England on Oct. 1, 2006, the Bengals are 6-11.

They're done.

For what it's worth, too, the Bungals failed to convert a third down THE ENTIRE GAME, and they committed eight (!)penalties in the second half. Plus, they're sniping at each other ... coaches at plaers, players vs. players, players vs. coaches, etc.

Yeah, they're done.

The only reason they had their good season a few years ago is because they led the league in turnover ratio. Their defense depends completely on forcing turnovers.

Yeah, I forgot all about that (their favorable turnovers ratio in 2005), but that's true.

Now instead of gathering turnovers, they've acquired a bunch of turdovers.
