I have to say I was disappointed in the UC loss but I have to agree with Paul Daughtery's article in today's Cincinnati Enquirer. The Bearcats have come, and are going, far. If there is a moral victory, then I think UC can find much to be pleased about.
The Bengals, however, do not have much to be pleased about. It was a game of highs, including a blocked punt by DeDe Dorsey for a touchdown. Shortly followed by a pass by Carson Palmer intercepted for a touchdown by Antrel Rolle. Rolle in fact had TWO interceptions for touchdowns on the day. During post game interviews, Palmer took blame for the loss. He needed to with a career-high four interceptions. The Bengals can just not put together a total team effort. Good special teams' plays for instance were negated by a sloppy passing game. The Bengals are now 3-7 and continue to lose to teams they should beat.
I know I am just a guy in my seat high up in the 300 Level, but man it is hard to watch and root for them sometimes. Next year, I may just give up that seat.
