Twitter reactions to Bengals vs. Seahawks

The Bengals may have lost, but there seems to be some optimism brewing in Cincinnati.

The Bengals fell to the Seahawks in a 20-21 loss in Seattle.

A loss isn’t how you want to start your head coaching career, but it wasn’t a complete loss for rookie head coach Zac Taylor. The Bengals offense was able to move the ball almost at will, the defense really limited the Seahawks opportunities to score, the game ended on a questionable call and one player who laid dormant for two years finally broke out.

Lets take a look at the social media reactions to Cincinnati’s loss to the Seahawks:

The thing on everyone’s mind is the way the game ended. Cincinnati got the ball with very little time left in the fourth quarter, and Andy Dalton was chased down getting his arm hit as he threw. The refs called it a fumble, but you be the judge.

Of course the Bengals and their fans can’t put too much blame on that missed call. They had all the opportunities to have a stranglehold on this game, but they just couldn’t finish.

Still, the overwhelming feeling walking away from this game should be optimism. After all, the Bengals were huge underdogs going into the game.

Of course this brings us to the most exciting part of Sunday’s game, John Ross having a HUGE homecoming game that had everyone talking.

It is just great to see so many players start out with career days in Taylor’s first game in charge. We may not be able to celebrate a win, but it looks like the Bengals found the right coach.
