So the season is over for the Bengals. We blew it against the Colts. It had to happen. We've got the worst record once we get into the playoffs. But there is still lots of football to play and plenty of quotes to be gathered.
To keep us occupied until next season, here are the honorable Mentions from last week:
He's ready to go and get dirty!
"open against his ear."
Hmm. The ear is a usable hole, now?
"working that whole field."
Since he's punched in, I'd say work that field.
"he finds his tight end."
Field working has worked.
They kept things clean. Always a plus.
Now on to those football funnies of the week.
"Loves to escape the pocket."
It's one form of prevention that sometimes works. Kudos for at least trying.
"He has the physical tools."
And those tools are appreciated.
"is the size the reason they weren't to connect?"
If he was too small for the hole, slippage can happen.
To make up for the small problem with connecting.
"Smothering the center."
He can't take much more!
"All kinds of great pressure."
Because he's being smothered. Let go a bit and let him breathe.
And now for that Doozy of the Week. I love these. These are so much fun.
"That offensive line does a great job of blowing."
It's a talent. They're very proud.
Since you're reading this, I'll bring this up. There's a Bengals player whose daughter was diagnosed with cancer. A portion of his jersey sales are being donated to the Cincinnati Children's Hospital to help with cancer research. It's a great cause. I've ordered mine. Want to know more?
Andy Dalton, #14, Quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals
