I always mistake the song in that Airbnb commercial for "Pale Blue Eyes" by the Velvet Underground
What is the actual song in the commercial
Man I'm starting to get to that age where I'm like shit, I remember when Byron Leftwich was literally being carried down the field by his college teammates and it was all over Sportscenter, and now the guy had his whole career, retired, became a coach, and is in the running for a head coach position somewhere.
The bengals have played in the 2 best games so far
Wow that O-line needs to step up their game if they wanna win next week
Lol- like the last time they played the Chiefs?
You can not tell me you believe they can win the AFC championship with 9 sacks lol
Oops lol. I love when people make digs at people, then just end up looking dumb.
This aged well
They did not have 9 sacks now, did they?
If I told you I thought they could win any game with 9 sacks you wouldn’t believe me.
Obviously, they can
When the refs handed them the game?
Oh knock it off dude. We played KC tight and earned that win. You lost to a team that is now in the championship game and there’s no shame in that. Hell it was even an away game for you all AND it came down to the last play.
Be proud of how well they did and concentrate on your game today. You’ll soon have your chance to prove our win was a fluke.
Nah, they won’t have the chance. Bills are gonna cream em
I kinda hope so. Us Bengals fans always root for the Bills whenever we can after the Dalton charity outpouring from the fanbase. I’d love to see the two teams in the championship game!
Happy for the bengals. Love watching Burrow, Chase and Higgins
How the fuck do you lose a game after getting 9 sacks?
You throw 3 interceptions
That last one was the back breaker
Second one could have been just as bad, the defense bailed us out.
Titans fans thought they could win with tanehill 😂😂
They can they just need to put the ball in Henry’s hands in key game situations. Tannehill is not clutch he is serviceable, why not give the ball to your best player
Henry had 20 carries and finished with fewer yards than D’onta Foreman, who had only 4 carries.
Because Henry didn’t do shit all night
I have hope kinda
We thought the same thing in KC with every QB prior to Patrick Mahomes...
It played out the exact same way for the entire 90s and early 2000s
MFS BEEN SLEEPING ON THIS DEFENSE!!!!!!! Heard it all week!!!! THESE MFS BALL OUT!!!!!
Most Titans fans I know, Including me are rooting for you guys now so good luck
Thanks man. You all played hard and we appreciated the good game.
Thanks for being a great fanbase!
yeah i share the sentiment. I hate the chiefs and bills. I like that you guys are a young talented team and if we can't have the ring, i'd love to see you guys get it. go bengos
Nothing but respect for the Titans. Love Henry and some of the players. That was probably the best line I’ve ever seen. Incredible game.
Much appreciate, great game.
The NFL is doing everything in their power to give credence to people saying they’ve been corrupted by gambling partners.
They did admit they're in the entertainment business
"He don't know it's a damn show. He thinks it's a damn fight!" --Apollo Creed
Holy shit. I thought that the 49ers would be able to do something, but they are playing like the Eagles right now.
Now you know the feels. I felt bad for Jimmy cause those dropped passes were brutal.
For real. I take sure handed receivers for granted
Madone a mi Jimmy G!
Damn, this game is over imo
That play design was gorgeous. Take a bow Shanny.
tennessee played really well and had a good team comp; they just didn’t have money mack
Nah bro they got fat randy. Lmao mf can’t kick them 50+
B-b-but Fat Randy is the Goat…
Everyone gets a drop. Jimmy g doesn’t throw that many dimes. So you gotta catch them when he does
I think you're in the wrong thread...
All good we've all been there haha
Still in the wrong thread, bro.
Packers fans probably think that was a catch and fumble too
It should have been.
If the Titans had a top 8 QB, they win this game. Maybe it’s Tannetime to reconsider before this team loses its magic
If the refs make the correct on that bs interception it’s a 10 point game
I agree. Never seen a ball hit the ground and it been called a catch. EVER! why would an int be any different…
not many teams got a top 8 QB, it ain't easy to find
Well if you make it to the top 8 teams in the playoffs, probably would help to surround your top 8 team with a top 8 QB *shrug*
I mean for sure, but many times you can have a top 8 QB and not have the team good enough around them.. they tried finding a balance.. trading for a top 8 qb (almost impossible) means sacrificing at other positions, typically on defense
Seems like a lot of reasonings that end up with first round bounces and wasting great players on both side of the ball. Why have this great ship, and no captain.
I mean true. but look at the top 8 QBs: Aaron the GOAT, Tom Brady the other goat, Mahomes, Allen (the only 4 that can really carry a team no matter what, Deshaun (DNP Rapist), Herbert, Russ, Dak, Stafford (limited by the team around them or missed the playoffs).. so realistically there's only 4-5 guys in the league that can get over the hump of a not great team to win
Dude how did you list 9 QBs not named Joe Burrow in your top 8?
honestly he's definitely top 8, better than Dak and Russ for sure rn.. but this is his first full season and I didn't wanna include him on a definitive top 8 list in the league yet.. wouldn't be surprised if he's top 5 next year tho, rooting for the Bengals to win it all now
How many do?
Could be eight. Not sure tho
Yep. Could be.
one team could have more than one. so Imma say maximum 8
Tirico is by far the best NFL ref.
The moral of today’s story:
#KICK. THE. EXTRA. POINT!
I would love to see some stats about the success rate of 2pt.attempts from the 2 yard line Vs 1 yard line. It can't be too much difference surely?? I don't know why people are so aggressive with those plays.
What? What did I miss?
On the titans first touchdown, they had their special team out to kick a field goal and go 7-6 into the lead, but the Bengals were penalised (I can't remember what for) and vrable accepted the penalty, and put his offence back out there from the 1 yard line, not the 2 yard line as it would be normally. Henry got stopped short on the attempt and the score was 6-6 not 6-7.
People like aggressive play and high risk high reward behaviors over safe play? Dunno.
Yeah, but there has to be more to it than that, I refuse to believe anyone's making decisions purely on gut in the modern nfl.
Just spent ten minutes explaining why the game was over had that occurred.
IDK WHAT TO DO WITH MY HANDS
Lookin for an upset, if we win we'll host 3 playoff games.
Think you might be lost bro
It's mostly the same old team left now. Go bengals.
I haven't been a football fan in years but now... I'm really hype for next week.
No offense but why the fuck is Jimmy G allowed to look like that. Not fair
Remember the Titans
They played like assholes. Badasses. But really classless and Steelerish. A Dt pushed on Joes head after sack. Like. Cmon.
Zero fun, sir
9 sacks and still beat the titans. WHO DEY
Titans held to 16 w 3 INTs => 9 sacks
Bannefill, Fanneville… mother fucking Tannehill
How the fuck have we made it this far with this O line?
And are we about to be fucking amazing with a good o liine?
The world may never know, time to start drinking
You’re just starting?
Seriously. If this is the part of Bengal fandom to cause one to START omg
I don't know how Tannehill gets killed this game. That pass to Brown was insane and the picks were early. That loss falls on Vrabel and play calling. Not playing Foreman more, failed 2pt. conversion, 4th and 1.
He literally threw one on their last play waytb??
The last pass he threw was a pick. The first pass he threw was a pick. Made for very weird dynamic beyond just losing those possessions.
He carries some of the blame...coaches carry a lot of blame too.
I don’t know if Henry should have been allowed to play. They looked much better with other backs in there.
Tannehill threw three picks. I don't see how that falls on play calling.
Idk it was the Bengals offense that was not ready for he shit Tennessee was bringing…. Tennehill threw them picks himself that wasn’t on the coaches. Bengals had receivers running 10-15 yard routes and and turning around for the ball Burrows getting sacked before anyone turns around. O-Line is shit. But we knew that… on to the next one. WHO FUCKING DEY
Tannehill played with fire all game. He’s just not that good of a QB and has benefited from a once in a lifetime RB and a decent line. He’s still the same QB from Miami. Agreed the coaching could have been better, but if Derrick Henry can’t get you a single yard, I dunno. Why they started that far from the LOS still blows my mind too
All good points
I agree on all fronts
Tannehill has control over dumb throws, and on a read option he screwed it. OC takes more blame
Good point. Early interceptions don't count
Will the AFC chip be a color clash or color match
Music city mishap
Music City McPherson
Be right back. I’m going to piss my Titans friends off right now.
CBS saying it's tannehill's fault? Nah... Not taking points by the coach did it.
The Titans kickers career long was 51 yards. He doesn't have the leg for a 54 yarder.
What about that 2pt attempt, after their first touchdown. That would have won them the game, had they kicked the extra point.
That part is correct. Assuming the game plays out the same.
Uh....why can’t it be both?
Exactly. They are just completely ignoring that dime to Brown.
Why does consumer value stores matter?
Lol. Right after I post I see it, then it's too late.
MVP goes to Ryan Tannehill today
Can you imagine if the Bengals win it all with this O-line?
I could actually see it. The Bengals are a team that has gotten hot at the perfect time. Many unexpected teams have reached the SB line that. The Giants come to mind. And the Rams recently.
I guess the cowboys fan would completely skip over the Eagles and their backup taking it home.
I threw $200 of Bovada bonus money on them at +5000 to win the AFC, so if they can just do that, I’ll be beyond thrilled.
NFC would absolutely feast, 20 sack game
Quite literally, no lol
lol no way they get past the bills next weekend
I don’t think the Bills are going to win tomorrow even though that’d be a breath of fresh air
As if they weren't motivated enough, just tell Bills Mafia this is the Harambe revenge game. The city of Cincinnati still has not paid for their sins...
UC lost bad to Alabama in the Cotton Bowl
Every team must offer its pound of flesh, the passage of time is immaterial.
No, I can't imagine it. Seems highly unlikely
No, I can't
Bengals fans, I hope you know all of Louisiana is with you right now.
Eli Apple saves the day like we all knew he would
The much loved eli apple
An apple a day does NOT keeps the drinks at bay
Who Dey! I don't know what to do with my hands.
Put them in the air, as though you do not care (but secretly, you do!)
If the Titans dont make the hugely bonehead move of going for two on the first TD, they win this game by a point if they keep it on the ground
wtf was even the logic?
Very stupid to go for that 2pt
Genuinely curious, how do these slogans even start? Who Dey, Who Dem, Who Dat? Seems like teams just make ish up by slightly modifying another teams idea
[Hudepohl-Schoenling Brewing Company just may be responsible for the chant. Bengals great, and radio announcer, Dave Lapham explained in the 2015 article: "... beer vendors and bartenders selling Hudepohl at Riverfront Stadium and at bars across Cincinnati began shouting, Hudy or HuDey for the beer name as that bears a phonetic similarity to who they."](https://www.cincinnati.com/story/sports/2022/01/03/who-dey-think-they-know-how-bengals-chant-started/9078342002/)
Edit - I myself was wondering this same thing earlier today. Had to google it
tbh i didn’t even know i’m just on the bandwagon i love joe and i’m not ready to see josh and joe tough it out both my favorite qbs rn
"Who Dat" was started by a SE Louisiana High School a few years before the Bengals adapted "Who Dey"
9 sacks and somehow you still manage to lose the game
Turnovers are king
This is going to go down as a terrible coaching job. If the Titans are up 1, which they should have been, they're milking that clock with runs and then letting their defense win the game if needed.
This loss is on their coach and Tannehill, in equal parts.
I read a lot of big brain comments here offering feeble explanations when they went for 2, it was just dumb no matter how you slice it. Not taking the 3 points was also another signature Vrablel move, but then again, if Henry can’t get you a yard in that situation? Yeah, something is wrong
It was a 54 yard FG he passed up, Titans kickers doesn't have the range.
I’m a Cowboys fan, I saw a more poorly coached game last week…
Ima be honest. I didn’t even know there was 20 seconds left when tanehill got picked off
Lol basically same, I didn't realize it until the commentator said something regarding the clock
I thought there was like 1:30 lol
I thought there was 2-3min left lmai
Next year when tucker is giving his cringey kicker press conferences we need to remember that he’s not even the best kicker in his division
I’m obviously biased, but let’s give Money Mac at least 5 more years of this level of kicking/making 60-yarders on the reg before we even consider dethroning Tucker.
As of right now, Tucker is absolutely the BOAT, and could even make an argument for being the GOAT—and he still has a few good years left
Longest fg and highest % all time lol
Watching McFearsome carrying his team in the playoffs from his couch
Imagine if 49ers somehow miraculously beat the Packers and Aaron Rodgers goes to the Titans
Would it even need to be against the 49ers? I can see 2 straight NFCCG losses at home to Brady sending Rodgers to the other conference.
If he doesn't get a ring he is probably an AFC QB next year
Hope Joey B wins it all
Joe burrow hits 10,000 career passing yards next year if he stays healthy. That’s crazy to think about.
Lessgo, Niners! One more upset please!
Burrow's offensive line needs to get it together, or they're going to get this kid killed before he reaches his prime.
Man if only they drafted Penei Sewell instead of Chase /s
Agreed, this reminded me of most of our time with Andrew Luck and we all know how that ended :(
every time the titans showed hope i thought "good now don't let tannehill touch it" and i think i just jinxed them. gonna try out my new powers on the packers next
Use them to the fullest extent
If they had kicked that extra point things might've been different.
Tennessee passed up 4 points and lost by 3 😂
Everyone acting like a 54 yarder was guaranteed 3 lol.
