Game Thread W17 - Cincinnati V Kansas City (1 Viewer)

This game is going great for the Bengals so far.Granted, they are trailing 6-3 right now, but at least MIA is leading NE 10-7 so we are still on track for the #3 seed. The key thing is that Kitna is looking like crap - maybe this will lower his value a touch in the offseason, making it more likely that he might just re-sign with the Bengals!

 
Why did Palmer come out? Did the groin bother him?
The Bengals didn't want to injure the franchise. In a game that means very little, they didn't want to take the risk. Palmer is fine and looked great in limited action. Welcome to week 17 in the NFL :thumbup:
 
Great 49yd TD run by LJ there. He went in completely untouched - impressive. He's got to be the #1 overall pick next year, right? I mean Tomlinson has slowed down a bit since his injury and LJ is going to finish 3rd in the league in rushing yardage, despite only starting half the year. #1 = LJ, #2 = SA, #3 = LT

 
What's the story with LJ's hand thing when he scores? The only place of seen it before was in college, and it wasn't used in a very daytime-tv-friendly manner.

Depends on coach in KC and their system, plus Roaf's status. Have heard Roaf will be back but didn't sound definite

Wasn't looking all that close - let's wait another 2 plays until he scores again and I'll see what you're saying.
 
Holy crap that was a great TD run by LJETA: He started off going to the left side and got stuffed and almost brought down - slipped out of the arm tackle and went all the way back to the right side of the field and with a nice block from Trent Green got into the end zone

Larry Johnson is officially one of the best backs ever to play the game. He blows LT out of the water in his abilities. If LJ had played this whole season, he would have destroyed every rushing record.

 
Johnson now owns the KC single season rushing record...1700 yards on the season so far...
:eek: He just looks so unstoppable - a lot of fun to watch, even if it's going against my Bengals. I'm kinda rooting for him to keep going nutty and get the rushing title over SA.

Sammy Hagar?

I'm afraid I don't know what you mean. In my experience, it was used when a guy was acting like a certain female body part.
 
ANOTHER TD for LJ. Wow170 yards rushing, 3 TDs21 yards receivingHe's over 1700 yards on the season now.

LJ will get 200 yds today if the Chiefs leave him in.___edit___he's at 170 now w/ 12.5 minutes to go in the 3rd. He could get 300 if he wants to.

Is it possible that Cincy will host a playoff game next week and be an underdog? They have looked pretty bad the last 2 weeks and there are all sorts of questions about their D right now.

 
What's funny is that if KC wins, Cinci looses (obviously), NE looses and Pitt looses... then KC plays Cincy again in a week. :lmao:

Didn't that happen a couple years back with Denver/Indy? Denver smoked Indy in the one that didn't count, then Indy smoked Denver in the 1st round playoff game, the one that did count.I bet the same thing would happen here, with KC smoking Cincy in the one that doesn't count, then the other way around with Chad Johnson getting 200 yards and 3 TDs in the one that matters.

Alas, it's Jerome Bettis 18, Detroit Lions 12 over in Pittsburgh so we'll have to wait another year.

Fair enough, but it looks like PIT has it in the bag against DET now. Up 28-14 - no way does DET have enough offense to come back and win this game. But I hope LJ keeps going at it - it's making for a very entertaining game.

27-3 is entertaining?

He is having a helluva year but it is way too early to call him one of the best ever. One season, no matter how good, does not make him one of the best ever. Let him do this for 5-6 more years and then we can talk. Not to take anything away from his season but saying he is one of the best ever...no way.

When LJ can break a long TD run with any touch, yes. Better than the DET/PIT cluster#### that I've got on the other channel.

I think KC beats Cincy 2 weeks in a row if that were the case. The Steelers will do them no favors though. :football:

Let's not get out of control here - it's not like Cincy is really trying to win this game. If they were, Palmer would still be out there. The instant he was yanked, their offense went in the tank. They had nearly as many yards with Palmer in the game than they have had in much more time since he was pulled. Cincy's weaknesses have been reinforced during this game, but it's nothing new and we're not seeing the best that Cincy's offense has to offer. It's been obvious all season long that Cincy's D plays better with a lead and I believe that they would be in that position if Palmer had stayed in the game.

What's out of control? KC could run the ball vs Cincy even if they put 13 defenders on the field. KC is set up perfectly to beat Cincy. Starters or not.

The game would be in Cincy, which would have a huge impact on the game - Cincy has had to use 3 time outs so far in the game because the crowd hurt their ability to call audibles at the line.Plus the Bengals will have some great game tape on the Chiefs now - they'll know what they need to improve on.

And I can't say it enough - this game would be remarkably different if Palmer had stayed in the game. It's not like they would pull him in a playoff game.

 
Dont know about CJ, Am watching the game but KC has had the ball virtually the entire 3rd quarter. Annother KC TD right now would be bad for CJ and I need him.

 
What does LJ need to claim the rushing title? Is it possible that he could get it?
He needs ~150 yards, so it's not really going to happen.edit: 152 yards to be precise
