Usually after a game on Sundays, we'll hang around Twitter and just tweet random musings, statistics and dig into some idle conversion with some of our followers. If you're not following us yet, make sure you do. Here are some random tweets from Sunday following the game.
Following Cincinnati's loss on Sunday to the Pittsburgh Steelers:
All things considered, a loss is a loss. But this team still shows their guts. Down by 14 early, eventually tie the game in the third.
No Dunlap or Jones. Leon Hall and A.J. Green leave the game with injuries -- and the Bengals still only lost by seven.
@MoEgger1530: According to Twitter, no good team ever lost a game.Teams with winning records have been undefeated since 1932. RT
On the Bengals Cornerback Situation:
Doubt anyone is much better than Kelly Jennings in free agency. If they were, they're probably not sitting at home to begin with.
Candidates to replace cornerback Leon Hall:
Some asked about Korey Lindsay:
Korey Lindsay is on the Cardinals practice squad, IIRC. So he can be signed, but has to be onto the Bengals 53-man roster.
More on Lindsay. Cards released him in early Oct, but he cleared waivers signed back onto their practice squad.
And some asked about Leigh Bodden:
Leigh Bodden had surgery to repair problematic herniated L4-5 disc in his back. Not an option.
And cornerback Trevard Lindley, who has been out of work since September:
@RonTberry Any interest in Trevard Lindley or did he sign somewhereNothing reported. Unless he comes in for a workout Tuesday, long-shot RT
Manny Lawson on Sunday: 10 tackles, 0.5 sacks and two QB hits. Robert Geathers posted a team-high three QB hits.
Cedric Benson is averaging 3.3 yards per rush over the previous four games. 57 yards against Pitt is four yards over his season-low.
Liked the distribution between C.Benson (15 carries) and B.Scott (7). Would have liked higher Benson avg. but not expecting higher anymore
Under the good things file: Thought Maualuga and Gresham had very good performances during their first game back.
Though not all his fault, Andy Dalton has thrown two picks or more in four of nine games. Thrown two or more TDs in five of nine.
Dalton has also thrown eight touchdowns in previous four games.
