The Lackluster Beat Goes On for the Bengals Offense


So the beat goes on.

And that’s not a good thing. For the second straight week, the Bengals managed a whopping three points, and again seem to be going even further into the abyss of a lost season. The team has scored just 16 points in the last three weeks (that would be just over 5 points per game), and they seem to have no clue what is going on offensively.

They have not scored a TD in 11 straight quarters, and seem to be getting further and further away from reaching the end zone. Vs the Colts yesterday, they reached Indy territory twice on their first two drives, yet suffered a fumble by Ryan Fitzpatrick and a crappy punt by Kyle Larson. Not good.

“You witnessed what happens when you have opportunities and let them go by the wayside,” head coach Marvin Lewis said. Letting opportunities go seem to be the theme for this awful 2008 season. They put together stretches where it seems like they are going to finally get some points, then shoot themselves in the foot.

Now with three weeks left, it’s time to see more of Jordan Palmer. Heck, at least there will be a QB with the name of Palmer under center. Fitzpatrick has had more than enough chances, and frankly he’s not a good NFL QB. Nice guy, bad QB. Enough said.

Want some good news, the REAL Palmer – Carson, said he is throwing with little pain. He’s throwing about 20 to 25 yards but he has yet to cut it loose. “There is no catastrophic news,” he said.
