    Bite your tongue haters. We won. Don't complain. Enjoy it. If you want to complain, unplug your keyboard and angrily punch those keys as many times as you want, but don't litter on this forum with your garbage.

    -Tannehill played well

    -Team showed up in 4th quarter

    -We sealed up a game to win

    -We kept fighting

    Ryan Tannehill is legit. Outside of that one great TD run by Reggie, we had no running game at all today, and Tannehill kept us in the game.

    Defense played lights out.

    That's all.

    Take it how we can get it. Tannehill made some serious throws today. His cast sure as hell isn't the greatest but I'm glad he got the W today. Good win.

    Our running game is rapidly declining. Reggie is dancing WAY too much.

    Tannehill looks better, and better, and better. We have our franchise QB guys.

    Cut Charles Clay. I know, FH was obsessed with him and his 9 catches last year or whatever. He sucks. He can't really block, he has ZERO hands, and his lack of awareness should have lost us that game. ****ing running out of bounds there? REALLY!?

    Tannehill played great, and how about that secondary? hurting with injuries and still played very well. Smith limited Green and Carroll played very well on the boundary. Wilson made some nice plays and Jones is turning into the player many of us expected him to be when drafted out of Georgia

    defense was ****ing awesome. 13 pts total to an offense that had been ripping it up, not to mention in there house and 6 of those pts were off turnovers, and the other 7 were bc of a missed fg.

    offense looked good today, the lane fumble killed us that drive but does not matter now bc we won, but please do not run lane in those situations, hes a short yard guy.

    tanne no turnovers which was nice to see, made some very nice throws, some on the run, and overall we looked solid on offense.

    as far as carpenter, look a 53 yd is not a gimmee by any means, but when u are in the nfl, u got to hit those, especially considering u have been so god awful of late. any kicker can hit the 30 and under ones, but as an nfl kicker, u need to be able to hit consistently from 45 plus, with the occasional miss being acceptable. its not like we were playing in a snowstorm,

    ill leave it off with randy starks what a ****ing mother ****er beast, guy is so ****ing legit.

    sean smith nice job on aj green , wake another 1 and a half sacks, all is good right now.

    lets beat the **** out of the rams and go into the bye week 3-3.

    the refs tried to give cincy the game, but the bastard walt colman still could not do so. **** U COLMAN U BASTARD.

    Actually, I lied, that's not all. Our secondary really stepped up and played pretty well today. Props to Nolan Carroll.

    Reshad Jones is finally starting to look like the guy I thought we drafted.

    Bengals were 3-1. They were a playoff team last year. This is a very good win. Let's celebrate it rather than looking directly for the negatives.

    I'm definitely happy we won and improve our record. Butt we should be 4-1 if it wasnt for our kicker. Oh well

    What Miami did was apparently good enough for Cincy. But playing like they did against teams like New England and Houston will get them killed. Clay with drops and no time management awareness. Iffy call to send Carpenter out there for that long FG. The hesitant running by Reggie Bush. The poor special teams communication that led to the first turnover. Miami has a lot to clean up.

    IMO our running game declining is expected, especially with factors such as Reggie playing injured and the other team stacking the box with 7 or 8 players every time.

    Iffy my balls. He's a professional kicker. Matt Bryant had a 53 yd game tying FG against Washington that made it 17-17. It rained here in the morning and was drizzling all game.

    Bush isn't 100% so I don't think he can be blamed for being hesitant based on how he ran prior to being hurt against the Jets.

    The "fumble" on the punt? It hit Jones's back while he was in mid-block. What would telling him to get away from the ball have done when he was interlocked with the Bengal player?

    On the road against a very good defense no less. It's a solid win, I don't care what anyone says. A win is a win.

    Exactly.

    ---------- Post added at 04:40 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:38 PM ----------

    As am I, but in the end, if we can win these winnable games coming up, I still think 6-3 is a real possibility going into Buffalo and coming out 7-3...

    First, grown men shouldn't use the term "haters." Leave it to the 13 year old boys listening to Drake.

    Now back to football, Tannehill is playing great. He's been making plays out of nothing. I love the improvement I'm seeing from one game to the next. I was concerned about his accuracy, but he appears to be overcoming that quite well. Also, about damn time the defense steps up where it matters. Yes, it sucks that our kicker is a turd and we keep ending up in situations where we need to rely on them, but for once, it's nice to see them stepping up in the 4th. Also nice to see them finally forcing turnovers. The first Green fumble should have been ours.

    Also, people need to stop nit-picking the playcalling. You should be able to rely on your kicker to hit a 53 yarder in today's NFL. That or you need a new kicker.

    Great win! The best part (outside of the win) is seeing Tannehill's development going much faster than anybody thought it would.

    I think I agree. I liked the decision to go for it on 4th down, and I think when your kicker has a strong leg, kicking a 53 yard field goal while up 11 points is a fine decision. Carp is just in a horrible slump.

    At this point I can't consider it a slump and kickers don't get the leeway other positions do. Time to bring in some competition. He simply can't be relied on.

    Nope, just DT and his usual couple of yards into the back of the OL, but at least one of them ended up in the endzone.

    It's a bit sweeter because virtually every talking head I saw this week picked the Bengals to win. I wonder if we will start to get any respect, nah, I doubt it.

    I keep saying that the secondary is Coyle's skill set. He is going to improve every secondary player on this team. As long as the secondary players can continue to climb the training curve, we are going to have a very good defense for the second half of the season.

    We lost two games we should have won. Today we played good enough to win and did. We have to learn to put teams away and stop giving them a chance to win at the end. Today was progress though. Carpenter has to go.

    Honestly though.. I blame our offensive line on Carpenter's miss today. The right side got blown apart, had he hooked it a tad bit to the right it would have been blocked, so he tried to line drive it.

    I'm with the "Carroll should start over Marshall" camp. Pleasant surprise there. I think one thing with him is that he has good athleticism and has always been around the ball. But he seems to be getting better at keeping his balance and closing. Today it looked like he gained confidence. He's more explosive than Marshall.

    And I think Sean Smith and Reshad Jones have Pro Bowl potential.

    I think we're physically better than most teams. It does suck that 52 players have made enough plays for us to be 4-1 but one hasn't and here we sit. I think our run game will improve. Reggie still showed enough burst on that TD run and Daniel Thomas didn't fumble and showed some good power.
    But can you imagine Tannebeast if and when some other people start getting open? If Gaffney can start making some plays. I enjoyed his hi-light reels on YouTube. He's pretty polished. It remains to be seen if the athleticism is still there.
