Time to resort to the old reliable jinx.

I will take CIN straight up which hopefully will work its magic.

Other than that, I got nothing

All I've got is my fingers crossed, but this is a very winnable game for us if we cut out the dumb mistakes.

The thing, well he'll, the things that worry me are:

AFC North is a very physical division, we have to really want it, especially with our injuries.

Our injuries; R. Mathews, Big V, probably J. Matthews, are guys with a physical playing style for their positions.

Our road performance has been poor. (1-5).

We may be the 2-6 team and the worst rated QB that our performance in the last 8 games say we are. It may be the first 3 games that were the mirage and not the last eight.

The fact the line is only 1.5 makes me think that maybe there is something out there that does give us a shot.

we have a shot cuz the bungals suck...but it is interesting that Vegas opened the week with the Birds as a 1.5pt fave then moved them to a 1.5pt dog

Jordan Mattews (sadly) our best WR is questionable with his ankle injury and it looks like NA will play again. If that doesn't inspire you to bet against them then nothing will. wink.gif

That was my view at the time, which was why I didn't join in the ranting when we did start losing.

Precisely.

The result of this game is meaningless, how Pederson coaches it means everything. I don't care if the OL is challenged because of injuries and suspensions, RUN THE DAMN BALL! Give the kid a chance. I don't care if he has a photographic memory, is a genius who can dissect coverages in a blink, has a cannon arm and runs like a deer. He doesn't have enough talent around him and needs help from his coach. Don't get him killed or imprint his brain with failure, give him that help! Don't pass the ball 40 times, especially with receivers who can't get open and can't catch.

so do we. the difference is that they have a receiver who catches the ball.

He heard you but figured he'd get crazy and throw it 60 times. Then again, when you spot the other team 29 points...

That was ugly.
