Browns-Bengals post game thoughts

The Good:

1. Defense played very well especially when they held the Bengals on 4th down and goal

 2. Offense played 1 of the better games they've had this year

3. Peyton Hillis' 2nd effort on several drives to get 1st downs

4. Gregg Little's TD catch...finally he managed to get into the endzone but we'll get back to him in a little bit

5. Jabal Sheard caused problems for Andy Dalton most of the game

The Bad:

1. Dropped Passes: Gregg Little was responsible for most of them which managed to kill several drives that could have changed the outcome of the game

2. Coverage on AJ Green near the end of the game: That 57 yard reception ended up costing us the god damn game

3. The Holding call on the INT:  What the hell were you thinking?  Its almost as if you're trying to give the Bengals another opportunity to score

4. The INT:  Somebody please tell me where in the hell Colt McCoy was throwing the ball

5.  Huge Plays: They eventually caused the Browns the game (AJ Green reception, Benson 33 yard gain)

The Ugly:

1. Tony Pashos: Will he ever learn that it isn't a good idea to allow giant holes that defenders can get through if they're driving a semi truck

2. The Emptiness of the Stadium: Come on Bengals fans, you're 7-4 now and you still can't sell out your stadium while we who are watching the Factory of Sadness still find ways of filling our stadium week in and week out

3. Passive Patsy: Pat Shurmur again looked like he was emotionless and clueless

4. Ryan Pontbriand: 2 out of 3 weeks he's had a bad snap costing Phil Dawson to be thrown off time and miss the FG

But otherwise there was a note of improvement and maybe we can pull one off against the Ravens or the Steelers...maybe.
