I'm just absolutely freaking crushed. I have to say that I was pretty proud of the Cincy fans at the game for being just about as loud as you can get in an outdoor stadium. Not so proud of all the jawing in the men's room and on the plaza with the Steelers fans, but what are you going to do. I actually didn't see any fights or anything, and there weren't nearly as many Steelers fans there as I thought there would be. It's hard to know what to say about Palmer. Try going from jumping up and down, screaming your head off to just stone cold silence in about three seconds. Terrible, just terrible. And, of all people it had to be an ex-Bengal. It wasn't cheap, it's just part of the game, but it's absolutely devastating. The remainder of the first half was just wishful thinking. Once they had a chance to adjust defensively to Kitna it was all over. I guess now the Bengals have to re-sign Kitna which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it sure ain't Palmer. Hats off to the Steelers I suppose, for playing the type of game they play. Tough, efficient, and just god awful suffocating once they get the lead. I will now be passing out and hope to wake up next August.
