wow he did bad. On top of that RG3 had a great first game. And Peyton Manning did awesome last night. I wonder if the Colts think they should have let go Peyton now?

Comedy Central had a football game on Monday night featuring my Cincinnati Bengals and the joke was........the Cincinnati Bengals! :lol:

My young Bengals got painfully "spanked" on Monday night football. :cry:

Oh well, their young and will learn from their "many" mistakes. We got Cleveland at home this coming Sunday! ;)

...even I wasn't expecting that, I think it was a bit of a fluke. I think the Ravens were just more "up" for the game(being home, prime time, Art Modell's tribute) and carried more "energy" through the whole game, second half in particular. I'd expect that final game of the regular season to be closer. ;) :)

Peyton also threw 3 interceptions in his 1st game with the Colts against Miami. That didn't turn out too bad o ye of little faith... :mrgreen:

One man does not a team make! If NASCAR doesn't teach us that, I have no idea what else could!

I'm not judging Luck's NFL career after his first game, just taking glee in his rookie 1st game struggle. Not to mention that the rest of his team is kind of crap.

Lets hope so! You come to expects disappointment being a Bengals fan since the early 70's. That's not a positive comment from me but it's realistic! :D

Cincinnati as I said is very young with a sophomore QB and 4 first string players out due to injuries. We can only hope they will get better as they did last year. We had two rookies play in the Pro Bowl last year(Dalton,Green)and ended up with the 7TH ranked defense in the NFL!

What really stinks is the TV "black out" rule. Cincinnati builds a new stadium with more seating and very seldom do they sell out home games..........so you can't watch televised home games within a 50 miles radius! Sometimes they re-broadcast the home games late Sunday nights! :D

Similar situation with the Bucs in Tampa. They can't sell even 85% of the tickets and the home games have been blacked out for the majority of the past 2 seasons, including this past weekend's home opener.

Doesn't that stink HH! I mean I understand it all. They have a business to run. Cincinnati is a medium market city. It's not all that big. They don't have the money Dallas has for instance. I have missed more games through all the years than you can count due to that "black out" garbage. Most games I'm glad in a way! :lol:

I think most people would rather watch football with their friends and family at home. Going to a game costs bucks! Then you have to fight all the drunks running into you or falling on you vomiting! :lol: Most are "hammered" before the opening kick off from tailgating! :lol:..........Oh wait, sounds like a Nascar race doesn't it........... :lol:

It's also hurting the local small business economy. There was a news piece on recently about the drop in Sunday business at local sports bars because the games are not televised. They also aren't getting the carry-out business because people are not hosting football parties at home.

But, that is only ~8 (home game) Sunday's out of a whole year. Still, they are losing some amount of business.

eventually luck will hit his groove, he is going to be solid, on the other hand, as talented as RG3 is, he has the curse of the dan snyder's redskins on his side, ever since snyder took over, any top play they drafted, traded for or got through FA, has become a bust......
