That'd be the one.

Bengals led with like 11:00 left in the first quarter, only to lose as time expired; talk about the ultimate ****-tease.

It was at that moment I realized they're really not allowed to play defense anymore.

He was always one of my favorite players in the secondary.

I bet he has some real interesting things to say.

I was thinking the same thing while reading what George had to say.

George just wasn't the same player once Reggie left. Don't find this to be a coincidence.

Reggie was very smart in his own right.

This could not be a more true statement.

Reggie hit hard and almost every single time they were clean.

I think the league has stated a couple of times that his calls were errors.

Reggie was the epitome of hard nosed football trying to play within the rules.

The NFL pretty much defined what direction they were headed from the refs trying to neuter the ones who at least were putting in efforts to comply.

Yep.  It was violent, so they thought it just had to be illegal!

Reggie got those guys lined up.

They certainly, especially Iloka, did miss his instincts and knowledge.

Like everyone father time caught up to Nelson eventually.

I looked up the video of the call in question... It was hard to hear over the booing (there used to be fans at the games), but I think they called hit to a defenseless receiver on that one. It was a bad call any way you slice it though.
