Well, as fate would have it, the Chargers are supposed to win the Super Bowl this year anyway.

/for the same reason the Saints, Packers, Giants, and Ravens did these last four years
//they were in Philly for the home opener.

It probably doesn't do a lot for your confidence when your boss says he didn't even want your ginger ass in the first place.  Then going out and crapping the bed like a monkey with the ebola virus in the first round of the playoffs probably didn't do a lot for his job security.  I'm guessing the Bungles draft a QB high or in a perfect world pick up Mike Vick.

Or you could not pull your usual "make up bullshiat" nonsense, seeing as how AJ Green was drafted in 2011 and Carson Palmer was too busy finding a way out of Cincinnati in 2011 to play a single down with him.

Stafford is the better comparison to Dalton.  They're both mediocrities who ride the coattails of All-Pro wide receivers.

What makes Romo different is that he's a genuinely good quarterback (until December).

Watching the video, I'm confused by the turnover on the Dalton run. I thought the rules say that the ground can not cause a fumble, which is exactly what happened there.

That's Mike Brown. Even if the Bengals won several Superb Owls with Kaepernick or Dalton behind the center, Mike Brown would eventually Mike Brown it up, and after either quarterback's first contract expires, and when he wants to be paid what he's worth, Mike Brown will say something along the lines of, "Enjoy St. Louis/Miami/Jacksonville," before tanking a couple of seasons to get a high-profile draft pick and instill false hope in the Bengals' fan base.

That team will never excel until that bloodline has no possession over it.

That's an insult to Tony Romo.

Romo throws game ending picks in close games after being very good to excellent the first 58 minutes.

Dalton played an ok half then committed what, 4 individual turnovers, including an unforced fumble?

Dalton sir, is no Tony Romo.

Romo is irrelevant because a)he's hurt, b)he's not in the playoffs and c)he's a good QB bailing out a terrible defense.

Plus even the Cowboys have won playoff games post 1990. Bengals not so much.

No, I'm pretty sure Dalton fits far more.  The litmus test is this: How long would he last if he were in Cleveland?  The answer for Dalton is "not much longer than Brandon Weeden did".  The answer for Stafford is "At least until the next regime change". They may look like similar time frames, but they are different, I swear?

/Romo's answer? "Until the next QB savior of the Browns is drafted."

It was to see if anyone would bite, people have defended Andy for a long time for no reason, he looks lost most games and their defense keeps them in games. He throws up a pass to get a miraculous reception of a horrible pass on the other end.

Truth be known it was more of a troll against people who were saying Andy Dalton was as good as Matt Ryan than pumping AJ up. Although he is the best receiver to come out of UGA in 40-50 years, I'm sure Pittsburgh fans would disagree with Hines being there so long though.

And Georgia is still relevant, otherwise they wouldn't put them in the top 10-15 every year, even though I agree they didn't deserve it last preseason.

Tony Romo is so much better than Andy Dalton

If Andy Dalton generates 30 Points, the Bengals win (13-0). Basically if Dalton plays well
If Tony Romo generates 30 Points, the Cowboys are 9-7. Basically if Romo plays well, the Cowboys sometimes win.

That might be related to the salary cap penalty they were inflicted with. Them and the Redskins went over the cap in the year there was no cap and were punished for a couple years. This year might have been the last year of it, don't recall.

Cincy is never gonna win anything with the ownership they have, they just don't care if the team wins or not.

I believe they are the only team without an indoor practice facility, as of 2011, they were using the Bearcat's facility. That may have changed since then, haven't found any articles backing that up. Also, Marvin Lewis, 2nd longest tenured coach in the league, zero playoff wins. Any other team would have canned him years ago.

People wonder why Carson Palmer wanted out of town so bad.

And it's not just wrong, it's laughably, provably, demonstrably false. There is absolutely no way it could be based in reality, because it's patently untrue.

And yet, he will continue to deliver his hot sports takes in the fervent belief that someday, somehow, Georgia will be relevant.

Norv inherited a playoff team, but he also inherited AJ Smith and his complete lack of paying money for offensive lineman, among other things.  It completely derailed the last two years and that's part of why Rivers hasn't looked good at all during the same span.  Behind(or in front of?) every good quarterback is a good offensive line(except maybe Warner's time in Arizona).  They also had bad injuries to key players(LDT, Ryan Matthews, Antonio Gates[2-3 years of plantar fasciitis], nearly every o-lineman, the entire defensive end and linebacker crew, etc) and no depth(AJ Smith's job).

Norv should remain a coordinator, but there were worse things wrong with that team than Norv.

As far as this year, the Chargers seem to have grown into their new system as the season progressed.  I don't think anyone ever doubted they were talented, but people seem to have written off Rivers as worse than Jay Cutler or something.  These people never watched a San Diego game or paid attention to the team reports.

RINO: Watching the video, I'm confused by the turnover on the Dalton run. I thought the rules say that the ground can not cause a fumble, which is exactly what happened there.


If he slid feet first, no fumble.  If he goes head first it's a fumble.  If no one touched him right away he could get back up and keep running.

Trolling Cowboys fans in a Bengals thread?  I think we've passed the point where it's no longer funny and have reached the point where it's funny again because of the sheer ridiculousness of it.  This is friggin' absurd.

Anyway, Dalton.  It's possible that he'll eventually mature into a competent QB, but I'm pretty sure it's not gonna happen in Cincinnati.  Maybe we could trick Jerry into a straight Romo-for-Dalton trade....

I don't get all the hate for Tony Romo.  Sure he isn't a surgeon or anything, and he makes more than maybe his fair share of mistakes.  Consider that the dude came back into a game with a punctured lung to put the cowboys on his back and carry them to a win.

He may not be 'clutch' to some people (that's such a stupid and nebulously defined term) but to me, going above and beyond like that is pretty farking clutch.

Captain Dan: Stafford is the better comparison to Dalton.  They're both mediocrities who ride the coattails of All-Pro wide receivers.

What makes Romo different is that he's a genuinely good quarterback (until December).


Stafford threw for over 5,000 yards in a season.  The only other QBs to do that are Marino, Brees, Brady, and Manning.  Not saying that makes Stafford a great QB or anything, but he ain't Dalton.

Your wording wasn't ambiguous, ShadowKamui simply isn't that bright.

And while Dalton made a series of horrendous mistakes yesterday, the Chargers D forced almost all of them. Ingram and/or Liguet were breathing down his neck by the time Dalton got to his 3rd step in his drop all day. When you are constantly having to decide whether to force a quick throw, hang in and get slaughtered, or run for your life, it tends to affect your decision making abilities. Even on the unforced fumble, he was running for his life.

The reason for the penalty is that they didn't just spend big that year. They restructured long term contracts to take massive cap penalties that year to clear space going forward INTO the capped years.

I don't give a fark. They were told the year would be uncapped due to how the CBA operating at that time worked, and planned for it, reasonably smartly. They then got penalized for VIOLATING A CAP THAT DIDN'T EXIST by a committee that was headed by the owner of a division rival.That's kind of an obvious conflict of interest. Also, it kind of goes against the definition of uncapped if you can be fined for violating an 'uncap..'

It really was mostly on AJ.

The thing is, Norv's offensive scheme has always been predicated on having a strong OL that can protect the QB on slow developing plays. AJ completely abandoned the OL for years through the draft/FA, and the band-aid Gaither signing was the biggest bust since He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named.

Yes, a lot of it falls on Norv, and he should have been fired, because he wouldn't/couldn't change, but I've always thought that AJ set him up for failure, and that Norv got way more shiat than he deserved. AJ left his ass hung out to dry, all the time alienating key players because supposedly he knew better than everyone else.

I honestly can't believe how quickly the Chargers changed from a completely dysfunctional organization who was a minimum 3 years away from sniffing the postseason into the scary underdog playoff team with nothing to lose...McCoy, Whiz, and Pagano have them playing with house money now. Win or lose on Sunday, this season is more than any rational Chargers fan could hope for.

Less salary, plus rookie scale means drafting better doesn't help with depth. And I freely acknowledge that teh Redskins would have been downright terrible even without the cap penalties. It might have meant 4-12 instead of 3-13 with a bit of luck though.

The ground can't cause a fumble if there's contact. No one touched him, he just coughed it up.


I believe the ground can also cause a fumble if somehow only the ball hits the ground and the player loses control before any body part also hits the ground. If you get upended and break your fall with only the ball (imagine an outstretched hand) then you can fumble it.

LucklessWonder: Rwa2play: degenerate-afro: LucklessWonder: //More cap room might have given the skins a top 25 special teams instead of the utter clownshoes.

Shanahan still would have been the coach.

Also:  Maybe if they'd drafted better (considering they had cap room problems) they could've had decent ST.

Less salary, plus rookie scale means drafting better doesn't help with depth. And I freely acknowledge that teh Redskins would have been downright terrible even without the cap penalties. It might have meant 4-12 instead of 3-13 with a bit of luck though.


Rookie scale means rookies are paid LESS so it absolutely helps.

The Redskins had no draft picks because of the RG3 trade and no money to sign players. Both are the fault of the front office. They also barely had an RG3, which is also mostly on the front office.

The Redskins and Cowboys tried to game the system and got burned. There's a reason 30 other teams didn't do the same shiat. It wasn't a complicated master-stroke. It was a really simple attempt to cheat the salary cap in the NEW CBA. The punishment is basically just an enforcement of the cap room they WOULD have lost if they didn't try to be too cute with their numbers.

ShadowKamui: You still lost to the Raiders, Redskins and Texans. No amount of white washing is getting that stink off you


Actually, I couldn't be happier with this team. Given the fact that the Chargers dynamited the front office and most of the coaching staff, were forced to start a ton of rookies, UDFAs and fat guys they pulled out of the stands through a good portion of the season, and are still alive at this point, I'll farking take it.

Fun Fact: The Chiefs, Broncos, and Bengals were a combined 20-0 at home this year until the Chargers came to town.

Think of it like this - the ground can ALWAYS cause a fumble. However, being 'down by contact' takes effect first. So if you are being tackled or were touched while falling you are considered down by contact BEFORE the actual fumble.

If you dive, are touched in the air, and the ball and a hand is the first thing to hit the ground and it pops out before anything els on you touches the ground - it's a fumble. (Note a hand on the ground isn't considered 'down')

Same situation but your elbow hits first? You're down the instant the elbow touches - before the ball can be knocked out by the ground.

For Dalton, he wasn't touched, so he can't be 'down by contact'. Therefore when the ball popped out, it's out.

If you slide or otherwise give yourself up the rule states you're automatically down when you do so. So a slide nets you no extra yards from where you start, but you're safe from fumbles or hits.

Except they probably don't f*ck around if the league wasn't basically admitting to collusion. But then they decided "well, f*ck it, let's admit we were all doing something illegal just so we can punish those teams."

FFS guys, they're Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder; even with all the help they could get they STILL couldn't be successful.

You lost to the 3 worst teams in the NFL; your sub-par defense is getting a year older; due to the Lolphins/Ratbirds choking you backdoor-ed your way into the playoffs and then managing to get the Bungles resulting in an even worse draft picks; and to top it off you're losing the offense coordinator who turned the team around.  Enjoy the back slide next year fanboy

Wouldn't it be worth the Lulz for Rivers to beat Manning, then Brady on their home court just to hear Cris Collinsworth wax rhapsodic about how Phillip Rivers is the greatest pure passer to ever grace the professional football since the days of Dan Fouts.

3 straight years in the playoffs and an 0-3 record?  Contrast that with the Giants, who have has 3 playoff appearances since the 2007 season, and have two Super Bowls.

Dalton's not getting the Bengals a title.  Neither is Mike Brown.  Time to move on.
