dirty deeds... and the dunderchief


my life has been extraordinary

ok. i'm thrilled that we have a 4-0 football team. really. i knew this day would come.

here's the thing. we still haven't been really challenged. we got a W today, but it was an ugly W. we had zero pass defense for most of the game... the thurmanator tore it up and the run defense was as solid as it's ever been... but come on, 14 penalties for 117 yards? we could go up and down the field five times with all of the penalties from the last four games. we pull this stuff against pittsburgh and the indy defense and they will absolutely eat us alive. we may end up in the playoffs but it won't end well.

i'm hopeful, though. the coaching staff can make powerful changes and i think they'll keep it up.

how bout those CBS announcers? they trashed the bengals the whole game. they must have shown that carr-fumbles clip a hundred times... and talk about how when shayne graham misses the last field goal, here's where the texans get possession...

4-0. that's really sweet. right about now is when i get disappointed beyond belief, right? and we end up 4-12?

i'm glad we weren't the only ones who thought those announcers needed to be hit in the face with a baseball bat.

that was one of the most unprofessional displays of obvious bias i've ever seen in sports broadcasting. graham missed one field goal, and they acted like he was a horrible kicker. i believe one of them mentioned the bengals needing a "miracle" to kick that last field goal.

and don't even get me started on them just ignoring the fact that to overturn a call on the field with a challenge, there has to be INDISPUTABLE evidence to do so.

not that the referees were the greatest, because apparently they have no idea what intentional grounding is.

Did ya's get your wedding pictures finally?

Blogger Simon Says:

Jeri, what do wedding pictures have to do with Football!!!

My favorite announcer comment was right after the Texans scored, they showed the replay and said "Hopefully that won't be the last one we see from them today" What the F!

Davie, sorry you don't know what intentional grounding is, but let me explain something to you...Here's the play, 1st and goal from the 19. Palmer drops back to throw...he keeps dropping back...and there he goes even farther back TO THE 41 YARD LINE!!! Then he spins around (instead of throwing it out of bounds) and BACK INTO THE POCKET!!! then he throws the ball to the 30 yard line!!!

Ok now to explain intentional grounding to you...1st of all you MUST get the ball back to the line of scrimmange! He was 11 yard off! You have to be outside the pocket/tackles. Or the ball has to be thrown in the vacenity of a reciever (this is tough to say it's pretty much up the the ref to call this one) Palmer was close but not within 5 yards. Soory but that was a fine call. Palmer needs to learn how to throw the ball out of bounds!!!

Blogger Davie Says:

back inside the pocket? he was still well outside the pocket when he threw the ball, which was right by rudi johnson when it hit the ground.

Blogger Simon Says:

watch the replay buddy...he ran back into the pocket, then the ball wasn't even within 5 yards of anyone on the field.

Blogger Davie Says:

whatever you say chief.

Blogger Rob Says:

i was at the game and the intentional grounding call was pure bullshit. and believe me, they showed the replay at least 40 times to piss off the crowd even more. it wasn't intentional grounding, it was an incomplete pass to rudi, regardless of how far back he was. the ball was near rudi.

Blogger B-Call Says:

regardless of whether, or not, he was back in the pocket (which he was NOT), his pass still needs to be at least somewhere NEAR the line of scrimmage and near a reciever. It wasn't even close to the line and 8 yards away from the ball (where Rudi was) doesn't count as being an intended reciever.
Onto the announcers. GET OVER IT!!! Understand this, ALL ANOUNCERS HATE THE BENGALS AND CINCINNATI IN GENERAL. Get used to it. They don't want to see us win, just like Bud Selig doesn't want to see the Reds in the playoffs (see the last series in Milwaukee in 1999). When you have a franchise that does NOTHING BUT LOSE FOR 15 YEARS, nobody is going to give you any respect. Obviously the Bengals have to earn that respect from the media, and even from announcers. It also doesn't help that the Bengals always get the C-grade announcers for every game. They've all been to Cincy too much and they hate it here. Get used to it. They all hate Cincy. And they all will until the Bengals earn the respect that they deserve.

Intentional Grounding of Forward Pass

1. Intentional grounding of a forward pass is a foul: loss of down and 10 yards from previous spot if passer is in the field of play or loss of down at the spot of the foul if it occurs more than 10 yards behind the line or safety if passer is in his own end zone when ball is released.

2. Intentional grounding will be called when a passer, facing an imminent loss of yardage due to pressure from the defense, throws a forward pass without a realistic chance of completion.

3. Intentional grounding will not be called when a passer, while out of the pocket and facing an imminent loss of yardage, throws a pass that lands at or beyond the line of scrimmage, even if no offensive player(s) have a realistic chance to catch the ball (including if the ball lands out of bounds over the sideline or end line)

Taken Directly from the rulebook...note the part about the pass landing at or beyond the line of scrimmage.

exactly, which it DIDN'T.
