After Thoughts: Indianapolis Colts vs Cincinnati Bengals 10/16/2011

Who Dey!

I really mean it. Who Dey!
The Bengals beat the Colts 27-17.
A three game winning streak is good for my health and for many others in the Tri-State. Just wish the boys in stripes didn't let the game get so close late in the 4th.

I know I wasn't the only one worried when the Colts started to run the no-huddle in the 4th. They seemed to move the ball easily on the defense.

The turning point of the game easily have to be Carlos Dunlaps fumble return for a TD to give the Bengals some breathing room. Something that should not be overlooked is how well both Whitworth and Smith played against Robert Mathis and Dwight Freeney. The one person the defense had to key in on was Garcon, and they did just that. Garcon was limited to 8 catches for 52 yards.

To me one things is becoming clear and that is Bernard Scott is not a future back. He sure can be a spark plug but nothing more. And that man Brian Leonard is reliable as the Sun, always there to pick up those first down in critical situations.

Mr. A.J. Green continues his seller rookie campaign with another TD. And Red Riffle also continues his outstanding rookie campaign. Dalton had a 111.5 QB rating with 1 TD and 264 yards.
With the bye week coming up, it will the perfect time to work on some of their issues such as ill timed penalties, and inconsistency in the run game.

PS. Lets not forget, with this win Marvin Lewis ties Sam Wyche for the most wins in franchise history.

Double PS. Jerome Simpson needs to stop spraying Pam on his gloves. I know he had a big day but him dropping balls has been a problem all season long.
