Heard that on the radio today!

I am doing my best to put the jinx on the Bengals as I got the boy tix for the game, and he is 0-8 at Bengal games including 0-1 in the playoffs.



I actually dont mind the bengals doing well. They should take care of business against Vegas easily.

I hate to quibble, but I see specifically remember texting a friend in 2015 saying that the have lost 5 playoff games in a row, what can’t they win just 1?

The football gods responded by keeping them out the last 6 years

Cody Carlson (Oilers) vs Dickhead Boomer (Bengals) were the QB's. Think Warren Moon got hurt before the playoffs.

No, Boomer's a dickhead. Almost every one of those former Bengals who are currently announcers (Boomer, Collinsworth, Dave Lapham) are assholes. Lapham might be the worst.

Lol maybe but I love listening to Lapham on play by play. He’s obviously a homer but he’s the Bengal’s homer so I embrace it.

Why are they assholes?

I know a lot of people don't like Collinsworth, but I do.

I know I was fucking hating Collinsworth Sunday night when he was all but cheering for a tie!

FWIW, Collinsworth is a nice enough guy who works harder than most color analysts.

Same.

I dont get it, maybe it is the overly sensitive Stiller fans who think he was 'rooting' for a tie.


I feel he and Al did a great job at keeping the viewers informed, and stirring the pot, whenever it got to a point where a tie could be conducive to a tie.  I do believe they were rooting for a possibility to keep and gain viewership as this truly was an unique situation.   Was watching it with a Bengals fan, and he was rooting for the Raiders....until OT when he wanted to see this unprecedented event happen.


When it got to 12 points, I was fine.   When LV kicked a FG and it went to 15 I was a bit worrisome.

Love listening to Lapham and Horde on wlw.,

I think your browns allegiances and biases are clouding your judgement.  They are hometown guys on their hometown channels..they are supposed to be homers.

I get your "homer" comment but every time Collisworth or Esiason can take a pot shot at the Browns, they don't pass on it. Lapham's just an asshole. The local radio station had him on after the Browns had beaten the Bengals (when Hue Jackson went back to Cincy as a "consultant") and Lapham lost his shit and hung up on the local station. The questions they were asking were normal/reasonable and the local guys Carman/Lima aren't looking for confrontations. Guy's just a kook.

Meanwhile, I don't see Cleveland sports guys taking pot shots at the Bengals. TBH, we don't care about the Bengals. Out disdain lies toward Pittsburgh & Baltiwhore.

Well, yeah, that sort of disdain trickles upward. For me, New England and to a lesser degree, Baltimore, are the teams I've disliked the most over the past couple decades; while you and Cincy are teams that might get the Steelers here and there, but have been stepping stones on the way to the postseason (and those teams who've earned my hate) more often than not. While a person could argue that Cincy's been a tad more successful over that time than you guys, they've lost every playoff game they've made during that time and don't even have pre-SB championships to hand their hats on -- essentially being Paul Brown's sloppy seconds/little brother to you. Hence the pot shots.
