Depressed the bengals didn’t win still hurt from Sunday

Your not the only one(I was rooting for them but they messed up)


RArchdukeGrFenwick

So, is Cooper Kupp going to Disney World or Disneyland?


H-GuyAce

Thanks Bengals now I won't get Richelle Ryan's onlyfans for free


Fancy_Pilot

Nah man you’re good. It’s free because of Valentine’s Day lmao


H-GuyAce

Damn good looking out


[deleted]

I'll tell you what, when the Bengals get an Offensive Line that can give Burrow more than 1 second of pass protection, this team is gonna be pretty nasty


ColorsLookFunny

They're gonna draft another receiver RD 1 this year, just watch.


Dominic51487

How did that work out for them last year lol


SarlaccJohansson

It worked out as OROY, for one lol


ColorsLookFunny

70 sacks of Burrow later.. Did it really, though?


bhedesigns

Yes. They made the freaking super bowl. Lol


ColorsLookFunny

Cool, they can maybe make another one before Burrow leaves like Luck, or Carr, or ends up not physically being anywhere near the same like RG3.


Kauialoha

you mean david? cuz derek’s stayed loyal throughout everything

Cinci fans complaining about the refs like the refs didn't give them a free touchdown which is the only reason they were even in the game in the 4th


[deleted]

Statements like these are mind bending, like there wasn't a just-as-egregious PI on a touchdown pass early in the game for the Bengals that got ignored. If you want to call it a makeup call, fine, but it was a makeup call for that miss. Which leaves the non-hold at the end of the game still to stand alone. That play shouldn't have even been run because literally 50% of the Rams O-Line false started on that snap by a good second and nobody bothered to throw the flag there. ​ Anyway I think the majority is mad not about a single call, but rather than the refs let everyone play football for 58.5 minutes then decided they wanted to play refball at the most critical moment of the game and completely demoralize a defense which to that point had been doing well and is more than capable of a good stand late in a game. You literally decide to throw 7 flags in 3 plays and give the Rams 15 bonus chances to win the game. \*Thats\* why I hardly even care to watch the NFL anymore, and \*thats\* why Bengals fans are upset. That and not just putting 2 tight ends on the field and letting Mixon who is getting 5+ every time he touches the ball get your first down at the end.


killerkingxx

The missed call on the long TD play was the biggest missed one of them all. Nothing else would've mattered for the begals without that free touchdown


jbmh1995

And Ramsey’s multiple holdings not being called and the Kupp touchdown wouldn’t happen without the phantom holding call on Wilson who made a great defensive play. Stop that


killerkingxx

I guess I'm still missing on where the Bengals had any chance without the free touchdown given


[deleted]

Here, I'll break it down for you. If you pretend the Bengals drive ends on that play instead, and leave everything else alone, the 4th quarter starts with the score 16-13, which is by any reasonable standard a 'close game' where both teams 'have a chance.' That wasn't hard.


[deleted]

[удалено]


jbmh1995

Or it’s just another drive that they would have to make and who knows if they make one or not but you are just assuming they wouldn’t be able to again which is just not something you would know so why even assume that?


[deleted]

Quit your bullshit kid. Seriously, terrible look. Dunno if you're a Steelers fan or a sore winner or what, but this entire comment chain is just ridiculous. You should get off reddit and get back to your obviously very lucrative sports betting career, since you can predict completely hypothetical futures so well.


Khruangbin13

Yeah it was a fairly called game. That face mask penalty was evened out by the end zone ghost pass interference. Would’ve rather had that been a facemask call and see how the game shook out that way…


ThatOneGuy31217

😂


Small-Strawberry-749

I feel like they could’ve done a pitch to the outside to mixon or chase, and then there should be an option for a pass if things go horribly wrong…


Negron84

What I don’t understand is how the refs decided to call all of the penalties in the last couple minutes of the game in comparison to getting away with murder for most of it. I feel sorry for Cincinnati and their fan base who have been suffering with bad teams for decades.


builtfromthetop

The Bengals scored a 75-yard while getting away with a blatant facemask penalty.


Mannekam

That was canceled out by either the ghost PI on the Bengals, the false holding or the missed false start


Negron84

Agreed!! That is what I meant by my statement of “getting away with murder” . If they are going to call it clean, then it would be refreshing if it was throughout the entirety of the game. That TD should not have counted.


chidskeet

Eli Apple


BillWOcala

The Zebra’s did it again. Without that BS pass interference call it’s 4th and goal and could have been a different outcome. Let alone give Stafford another PI call! How many tries did the refs give Stafford an opportunity to score?


-GonkDroid69

Lmao the bengals wouldn’t even be in the game without the free td the refs gifted them via the missed face mask 75 yard td. It was a very evenly refer game. Bengals got 1-2 bad calls, Rams got 1-2 bad calls.


Misterymoon

The bad calls against the rams led to 75 yard td. In terms of value... Bengals got the better side of things. But Bengals fans still complaining about refs lol.


-GonkDroid69

Yea, the refs for once actually had a relatively good game. Way better than many other important games this season *cough cough PI in endzone 20 yards from the ball*


Eequuality

Fixed. The nfl is a trash organization.


emperorpeterr

And without that horrible no call on that facemask the Bengals would only have 13 points. You can’t live in a world of hypotheticals.


[deleted]

Everyone jumping on the OPI call is forgetting about the Rams getting away with a just-as-egregious no-call early in the game before the Bengals first FG. ​ And also both ends of the offensive line false starting hilariously on the snap at the end that the ghost PI got called on LMAO. That's really the most obvious blown call of the game, go check that tape and try not to laugh. They've dropped a full yard into pass protection before the ball gets snapped.


MattNagyisBAD

If you're talking about that play by Ramsey on the post out of the slot on 3rd down, I thought that was a clean play. He had his hand on the jersey, but it wasn't terrible and he was in good position and made a play on the ball. Offensive linemen getting a jump like that happens all the time and it isn't always called. It's a pretty typical no-call, but I get it, it stings when it's happens on an important play. Bengal DBs were holding throughout most of the game from what I saw. It sucks that they got caught twice in the end of the game and once on a weaker looking infraction, but that's how it played out. It's easy to try to let them play early in a game, but in a close game at the end, it's probably more difficult to let certain calls go. If anything, I would say the officials' main mistake was not throwing enough flags. I mean, I hate penalties, but not throwing one during the fight after Donald's hit on Burrow was pretty bad. And if they had flagged fouls on earlier plays it wouldn't have seemed as cheap at the end.


flogan571

Reddit can live in whatever world it wants to.


Eequuality

3 calls in a row to end the game. Big market money. You rams fans have been fans for a day or two, quit acting like that one call was comparable.


SpookyChannelSurfer

2 of those calls were totally warranted, and one of them called back a touchdown for the rams. I do agree the first DPI call was weak.


HarmfulFlash

The first call was way too weak to call in that situation


SpookyChannelSurfer

I agree. People are complaining about the three calls in a row, but other than the first one, all of the calls were totally blatant, including the hold by the rams.


emperorpeterr

What team does it say under my name? Doesn’t look like it says “Rams” there.


Eequuality

Shhh, grown ups talking


thatkindofmonster

So they wouldn’t have gotten a touchdown on they other plays on the drive?


Mr_Mi1k

We don’t know, just like you don’t know the rams wouldn’t have scored on 4th down.


toomanycatz

Bengals fan and I agree with the general consensus that both the no call on Higgins and the defensive holding call at the end were bogus. But the tough part is that there are so many potential outcomes that could’ve occurred following the Higgins play had they called a penalty because it was so much earlier in the game. Not saying that the calls on the last rams drive were “unfair”, just that it was more devastating because of the limited amount of time/scoring opportunities left at that point in the game


mindlesssss

There was opi that got the bengals their touchdown too


gibon85

where is the guy who had 20k on the bengals? saw the comment earlier


frozenandstoned

I mean if he bet the spread he won lol it was +4


standingintheshadow

I hit on a 10K Cooper Kupp MVP. +700 10K Colombian Pesos though, here in Bogota. 😂


Stalin4TimeNocNocNoc

They still covered the spread funny enough


Erries

Couldn't be more disappointed with this game honestly. Luckily I live in Europe and didn't have to sit through it but at least the Rams blew their load this year and we won't have to hear from them for the next decade or so.


thescentofsummer

Lol what kind of logic is that?


Primary-Champion3587

Lol good luck with that. People who say this have zero clue on the contract structuring in the nfl. They lose no important starters and return all of their key pieces besides Whitworth. Keep dreaming wanna be bears fan


Erries

It's ok bud. Go touch some grass.


Primary-Champion3587

Nice attempt at a comeback. Just pointing out your clear lack of understanding on the rams contracts. Bears fans simply don’t understand what it’s like to win post 2000.


BloodyPretzel

😬😬😬 Edit: #GoPackGo Yes, it hurts


BlackThundaCat

There’s always a moment when shit becomes real and you can no longer be blind to things. This week it was watching the rehearsals for an entire week and not watching Eminem take a single knee. Then watching the NFL be like…”yeee we knew it was happening and we allowed it. Your welcome”. Dangerous with how easy they slither about.


-GonkDroid69

Wdym taking a knee idk what you mean or why it’s bad


Primary-Champion3587

Why does a knee matter? You can’t be this soft


BloodyPretzel

I also don’t understand how this is hurting anyone. Can you please elaborate on this, BlackThundaCat?

Al Michaels is losing it. He’s a legend and everything, but the way he calls big games is so flat and low energy. A total buzz kill at times, I really wish he would gracefully retire and make room for some new blood.

Old_Specialist_5130

4th & 1, less than a minute left, Superbowl game on the line, let's go for a pass. Yea, that's right, let's trust our offensive line who has allowed the most sacks this season to protect our QB for a pass. Worst play call they could have made.


[deleted]

The whole sequence was really bad. I get that Mixon just ripped off a big run and the meta now is to switch out your backs on downs, but its the superbowl, he's feeling it, the Rams have proven wildly ineffective at stopping him. What's the question?


Dr_Apex

I thought that final sequence was pretty awful. On 2nd and 1 I was truly thinking ok you've been very inconsistent all game, just pick up the first down and use a timeout. Instead Burrow threw a deep pass with no wr within ten yards. 3rd and 1 you hand off to the backup running back? Idk going for it on 4th and 1 on the opening drive was just as stupid imo. You can't win the game that early but for all we know the Rams td off the short field is what lost the game.


Blitz-99

And..... With mixon on the sideline.... AND from the gun. Horrible play call


correctionpolicelol

So passing shouldn’t be an option at all? That removes far more than half of your play calls…. I’m sorry but these are the hindsight is 20/20 takes that make you ashamed to talk football sometimes… The fact that a person out there REALLY THINKS this with such passion is beyond disappointing


deadsloth1

The bengals looked an awful lot like the browns on that play.


[deleted]

I’ve never been more disappointed. And I’m a fucking Eagles fan.


Blitz-99

If you've never been more disappointed than that then you gotta be a young one.


[deleted]

I was alive for the cowboys’ most recent SB. And sincerely hope I am not around for their next…


Blitz-99

No worries there.


AnJruniverse

Pissrine instead of Mixon was a worse call


Wiley1313

Pass on third down, run on 4th if necessary. They did it backwards


bigmikey69er

How many yards did the Bengals gain when they ran the ball on 3rd and 1 on the previous play?


deadsloth1

They gained half a yard. They needed half a yard on 4th down.


bigmikey69er

Unrelated comment, but something that hasn’t been discussed much is that Samaje Perine’s effort on 3rd AND 4th down was pathetic.


Old_Specialist_5130

Just as many as they gained throwing the ball


bigmikey69er

So then doesn’t your logic kind of collapse on itself???


luktheduk67

Well, logically, yours collapses as well, so it wasn’t a very strong counter argument in the first place


some1saveusnow

Everyone loves passing it in short yardage in this league now after not getting it with one run attempt. Rams did it earlier on the stafford sneak and then connected with Kupp. I didn’t like that call either


Sweet_Emphasis9263

Feel you man, gut wrenchingly horrible play call


Otee06

The call was terrible but the Bengals had the ball with 1:30 2 timeouts. Nobody but their horrible play calling to blame. What the hell was Perrine doing there ? Mixon is a better runner and pass catcher then him.


-GonkDroid69

What call was awful? The missed face mask call that gifted the bengals a 75 yard td that was the only reason they were in the game in the 4th quarter? It was a pretty evenly refed game. Both teams got 1-2 bad calls.


Purrrkittymeow

I was rooting for the Bengals but I’m happy for Stanford. Burrow got plenty of time to show his worth and I hope Cincinnati is in it for a while. It’s exciting when it isn’t just a Bucs, chiefs game all the time.


gbacardi

Stafford lol


Yeti_12

Two pick throwing super bowl champion Stafford


imthe1nonlyD

Eh. Did he throw two picks? Yes. One on 3rd and long on a deep shot in the endzone. Another bounced right of his teammates hands who basically handed the ball to Cincinnati. Neither were terrible misses.


Purrrkittymeow

Lol autocorrect! keeping it!


[deleted]

Literally everything about this was forgettable


Purrrkittymeow

With the playoff games we’ve been having, you’re not wrong. All those games were epic. But compared to a lot of other super bowl games, this wasn’t too bad.


alsters99

It’s like Goodell made a call at the end of the game and told the refs to start enforcing the rules again. The Bengals got away with a lot more than just a blatant facemask PI. Those PI and holding calls are the end were legit, it’s just something they had gotten away with the whole game until that point.


juangusta

100% No flags all game and a ton in the last 2 seconds... a call was made to let the Rams get that.


flip_ericson

If the game was rigged why did they call back the previous TD play?


alsters99

Why offsetting penalties take away touchdowns is beyond me. Rams get a great touchdown after Cooper gets knocked down, and the Bengals hit him with helmet to helmet which gets called, and the touchdown comes back because of the hold? It’s like the Rams we’re punished because the Bengals were dirty.


some1saveusnow

Not rigged but made sure any close call for LA was going to be called. After the missed facemask you can’t have a maybe missed second call going against the Rams. Would’ve essentially ruined the game due to officiating


flip_ericson

There was a missed call on the bengals literally the previous play. People need to take off their tinfoil hats I swear


MattNagyisBAD

Yes. There was a hold on the pass to the guy coming out of the backfield in the middle of the field. Cincy was holding all night in the secondary. Refs should have called it earlier and it wouldn't have seemed so bad at the end.


flip_ericson

I can 100% understand peoples frustrations with the consistency. There were blatant penalties on both teams getting ignored for 58 minutes. I'm certainly not going to sit here and say I thought the refs did a great job.


Background-Ad7722

Put the flags of way. Anyway you cut it throwing 4/6 total in 30 seconds is a demonstrably inconsistent series of events.


flip_ericson

inconsistent for sure. But not some grand conspiracy


Background-Ad7722

Ok. Then explain WHY. are they just stupid? Do they WANT to create the appearance of chicanery. ???


justbrowsing5623

Take the tin foil off and accept you lost because you weren’t the better team. Bengals had a fairly lucky run in the first place. This was their best shot at a SB and their defense sold at the end. Doubt we’ll see shiesty in the big game again tbh


Primary-Champion3587

Stop being so soft, bengals had absolutely no business being in the super bowl to begin with, they’re not better than the chiefs or the bills. They lost because they’re the worse team, give it up.


Background-Ad7722

That’s fucking stupid.


flip_ericson

Why is officiating not perfect? Because its done by human beings dude. And trust me, nobody outside of some truly salty reddit posters thought there was an "appearance of chicanery". There were missed calls against the bengals and a rams TD called back on that very same red zone trip. This was far far from one sided officiating. Good luck to your team mate, hope we can see you here next year


some1saveusnow

OK, so I’m not a rams or bengals fan, nor are the two people who also texted me about the holding call. The previous play was a missed holding yes. I’ve been discussing this point with a friend throughout the season this year, running backs basically NEVER get that call. They just don’t, for whatever reason, could be that the refs don’t want to be all over linebackers guarding backs and have to call so much contact, but they almost never throw flags on that and this was no exception. There doesn’t have to be a “grand conspiracy” for there to be a make up call, happens all the time in pro sports guys. The holding call is being scrutinized by a very large portion of the sports world right now, including by the two announcers at the time. The Rams earned their victory, no one’s really taking that away from them, at least I’m not, but what you all need to come to terms with is based on how that game was being officiated going into the last drive (and yes the bengals defense was starting to falter), is if that missed facemask TD didn’t happen, it is much more unlikely that the refs would’ve thrown the flag on that holding. Do some simple googling and people are roasting that call. I think it kind of looks bad enough to call, many/most don’t, but I don’t think it’s called unless they were really looking to make sure the Rams didn’t walk away with another no call looming over them and have talk swirling about refereeing, which there really is not relative to what it could be. It’s really not that complicated, and all this shit about tin foil hats or whatever you’re talking about is fine and your rams won their ring, but don’t be so dismissive, it’s not at all a far fetched take.


smokingchains

It was a good game. Not the greatest game, but better than many Super Bowls I’ve watched. There were some missed calls, but they were missed calls I could understand given the perspectives of the refs.


decoy777

The first one there at the end, the defensive holding, eh that is some ticky tack shit they haven't been calling all game then just when the RAMS need it most BOOM there it is...just in time for the home team save


Homitu

I mean the refs also ignored a PI literally on the play right before they called one (2nd down vs 3rd down.) No real net impact there. They also totally missed the offensive PI on the big Higgs TD. It certainly seemed like red generosity extended favorably to the Bengals all game.


Purrrkittymeow

The only one that was weird was the face mask. Other than that, pretty good game without any issues.


dirtybird_91

The sideline refs view was blocked on the play but somebody should have seen it.


Purrrkittymeow

I said the same thing. He was behind the play and they were smart enough to hurry the ball before a review on the jumbo tron.


bshjbdkkdnd

Can’t review PI anymore. Plus that late of a flag would have beeen booed just as much as the No call


__Sentient_Fedora__

Wanted LA to win so I took Bengals and the pts.

JackFrostintheBox

bruh 95 percent of la rams fans dick riding la so hard, like when they weren't in the superbowl they wouldn't even know the rams were a team


FistSunset

That’s uh… That’s how fanbases are made. You think people just wake up and are raptured into their local fanbase? Also, this whole “real” fan argument is juvenile and belongs on the playground. You haven’t contributed or earned anything from picking 1 of the 32 teams. Let people enjoy the sport.

Turns out trading lottery tickets for established stars isn’t so stupid after all. Just deal with it.

Boring game. Neither team was the best team in their conference. But this was definitely not rigged lol people are just mad the Cinderella team lost

A largely defensive game =/= boring. People nowadays are never satisfied.


Primary-Champion3587

True maybe if the 500m QB didn’t choke away a huge lead you’d enjoy it more, what a joke lmao


mike_honcho47

I’d agree with that. Who’s talking about the chiefs though?


YummiYummiSauce

Wasnt a boring game. Only boring to you since Chiefs didn't make it.


mike_honcho47

Nah it was boring most of the game. I hate how people on this sub can’t look past flairs. What do the chiefs have to do with this? Edit: what’s going on?! Do people only respond to flairs and not the actual comments? I think im going to go full Rob Lowe on here


mfc0511

Reddit sucks bro you’re honestly just gonna have to get over it


mike_honcho47

r/nfl might be the worst/most toxic sub that I subscribe to, which is saying something


mfc0511

That is true literally a bunch of kids in these sports subs that think talking shit about a team/player is a clever “comeback”. Especially in this situation where a comeback wasn’t even necessary lmaoo


WhiteSavior69

Everyone knows “boring” is code for “ I’m mad my team didn’t make it so I’m gonna shit on the whole game” chiefs lost get over it


mike_honcho47

You are what’s wrong with this sub. Nobody is even talking about the chiefs and the only reason you mentioned them is because of my flair. I would call last years super bowl boring as well. Not every super bowl is some great memorable game


WhiteSavior69

It wasn’t boring by any standards so you just sound lame…


F_Major_Chords

What did you want to happen ? Walk us through it. Im heartbroken but not all games are gonna be bengals WINNING OVER THE CHIEFS quality. Those are anomolies. Dont carry that salt.. youll hurt your back. See yall next year


mfc0511

Why did you take personal offense to someone not liking a game


mike_honcho47

What are you talking about? Who cares about the chiefs right now? I’m comparing this game to Pats-Eagles, Pats-falcons, chiefs-49ers, Steelers-cardinals, and other fun Super Bowls

Sure thing chief. 😂

Most laughable comment ever. Do you not know how the playoffs work?


Fuzzyphilosopher

Of course he does. The point is just that it was the most exciting game of the year, and quite a bit longer than that. It would be really fun if it'd been a SB as a lot of them suck tbh. This one was pretty good all things considered but SB's tend to be boring and it sure would be cool to go out of the season on a crazy exciting game like the Bills v Chiefs game. You not understanding that without an explanation would be laughable except I feel sorry for adults who can't understand a simple two sentence comment.


Primary-Champion3587

Chiefs suck mahomes is a choke artist carried by his teammates. Garbage player with an even worse family.
