Nice snatch out of the air on the pick!

He was down so long that I think he snuck a nap in there.

Even the cameraman gave up on that play and assumed the ball was knocked down.

i.e. HE was scamming THEM.

You mean people were taking things out of context and getting butt-hurt over nothing? I don't believe it!

That'll take care of that game...Andre Johnson is kinda good, you'd think the Bengals would assign someone to cover him

I think next year NBC should hire a new commentating team.

"And on 4th down the Bengals will go for it." -Hammond...with the Bengals clearly lining up to punt.

Dalton has definitely looked like more of a rookie than Yates.

I know I'm late to the party, but these announcers are terrible. Bring back Charles Barkley for commentary for some reason!

What 37 different records could a QB have?

Shocking I know!

Kevin Harlan is a KC native and on the radio here every week - he was completely incredulous that ANYONE could have misconstrued what he said. It was pretty funny listening to him talk about Charles off air too.

I agree Hammond should stick to horse racing. His play calling has been awful today.

Good for the Texans. I really had anticipated the Bengals to play better than they did. They looked almost amateurish out there.

If I were a Bengals fan, I'd be slightly disappointed but I'd be really excited about the future. A good looking rookie QB who is only likely to get better, a stud WR in the making and those draft picks from Oakland. The future looks bright.

The Texans are a team that I could see finding a way to make it to the Super Bowl if they hadn't had so many injuries.

I am. And taking the pulse of the folks I sit around at Paul Brown Stadium, the folks I tailgate with, and the folks on the various Bengal fan boards - we all pretty much feel this way.

I'm delighted we made the playoffs, and am obviously disappointed that we lost, but I am stoked about the future. 2011 was "bonus football" as far as I'm concerned - we're not supposed to be competitive until 2012-14. Now we've got demonstrated talent on offense, a vastly improved defense, a team with playoff experience, and stockpiled draft picks (6 in the top 2 rounds over the next two years) - yes, the future does look bright.
