    Pretty sure the coaching staff or the players (can't recall) said that Burns wasn't going to follow a guy all over the field and him and Haden would just stick to their respective sides of the field (Burns as RCB). Even though Haden was out, I'm sure they stuck with it.

    And Cincy lined up Green on the offenses right side to try and maximize that Green vs Sutton matchup. Which didn't work to their favor.

    Weird.

    They used to have Ike shadow the best WR all the time.

    Later in his career. Burns is a long way from ready for that.

    Perhaps, but it seems like it was an adjustment they could have made given how badly Green was destroying Sensabaugh.

    I remember it like it was yesterday. Titans game. I remember many Steelers fans on the old boards were freaking out because Kordell was gonna start again.

    Phantom call? His jersey was stretched at least a foot to keep him off of dalton, thats beyond ticky tack and gruden and his fellow bengal fan wanted the bungholes to win so what they thought about it didnt matter to me......

    That holding call is a tale of two views..... the first view they showed looked like a bad call.... but the second view looked like a bad hold. We need to remember these calls are made on the field from field perspectives. While you can argue good or bad call, I think the right call was made on the hold. There were a lot of questionable calls in the game though..... how about the holding on Bryant's kickoff return.... the angle they replayed looked clean but I'm not sure which ref threw the flag so it might have been different down in person.

    I was actually wondering today why they don't give Gay a look at free safety with Mitchell all dinged up this season. It's worth a try imo because Golden is not the answer.

    It was the umpire (if he lines up behind the kicking team) who called it from like 30 yards away. It was after Bryant was in the clear. In my opinion he saw the Bengal throw his arms up and called it based on that. He wasn't anywhere near in position to call it, but threw the flag anyway.

    It was 100% the right call. Bernard stopped Watt's forward momentum completely. Here's how he did it:

    Some early reports had his injury as a spinal concussion and that's what I was going by, if it is a contusion that's more serious and could have more serious complications and a lot longer time in treatment, as usual first reports are not always accurate.....

    Green has not been good at all this year. I should know he's on my fantasy team.
