This is me eating crow.
#1
I like my crow well done over an open fire.  Feel free to join me---

I was wrong as hell about Randy Bullock.  He turned in a good season.  Other than possibly the Titans game, he was never a reason we lost.

I thought John Ross would be a weapon as soon as he hit the field.

I thought losing Peko would be no big deal.

With guys like Peko its the intangibles. You could find a faster, stronger, younger player, but he will most likely lack that leadership thing that Peko has. That dude is calm, cool and collected. I miss him, even if his play was lacking off due to age. His time is about up tho. He's getting old for the NFL.

Ross still could be, he hasn’t seen the field yet lol I had high hopes for his rookie season too

I thought this team would make the playoffs, even after the slow start. I thought the young guys would grow and the team would mesh and go on a late season run to the playoffs peaking at the right time to finally get us that elusive playoff W.... what a fool I am

I also thought Zampese would improve in his second season running the O  Mellow

I defended Bullock from word go, and I feel pretty good about it. He turned in a great season. People were waiting for him to miss a few or miss a big kick, and it just never happened. I don't think some will ever accept the guy though, which is unfortunate. Good on you to admit he's a good kicker.

Bullock? That dude sucks. Should have stuck with the rookie, he had a great season with his new team. Ninja

In the first 8/9 games, yes.

By the end of the year, we were stopping the run up the middle, Billings was doing well, Glasgow, all of them.

No eating crow here except I thought they'd go 10-6

The only crow I will eat was that I thought Zampese would be better in year 2....but that was probably just me trying to be optimistic. Assbag.

Oh, and my prediction of Bengals vs. Saints in the Super Bowl might still come half (the wrong half) true.

Will have a plate of crow too on Bullock, still say we wasted a draft pick though if he was going to be our kicker.

Was pissed we even drafted Ross per greater needs. But did think he would be a good and possibly great WR for Bengals immediately.

Not eating anything on Peko though and have always had his back. Knew he would be missed. Always got a bad rap from fans that are in love with stats.

So give me 2/3rds of a plate.

Peko's time was up here, and he wouldn't have turned in the same season here that he did for Denver.

He finally got to go and play in a 3-4 defense and be a NT, like he probably should have been.

Same here. And even if he tanked this season, the FO still made the right decision by giving the spot to the person who decisively won the preseason battle.

Bengals fans shouldn't have to eat crow regardless. Generally staying a fan of this team is punishment enough you're excused from having to perform this action.

Peko is the real one eating crow.

I always liked Peko. I didn't really care on the kicker, but we wasted a draft pick; plus Elliot may be better long term. I convinced myself Ross was an awesome pick because we picked him, but that remains to be seen. That, and apparently Marvin doesn't like him for some reason. You coached Chad and TO, dammit you can coach Ross, it's what you get paid for,dude. Ending record was slightly better than I thought, but STILL; I would just as soon lost those last two and be picking around #5 in every round...that's a huge difference folks! Let's hope nobody eats crow on our new coaches, and this all works out. Mellow

I admit, a part of me would still rather have Elliot if only because of his big leg, but I recognize that's like wanting Mallet over Dalton because of his strong arm.

But, I am okay with Bullock for the time being. If he continues to kick like he did this past season, I'll be content. I reserve the right to turn on him any time he misses a kick, however, since I wanted Elliot from the beginning.  Smirk

I'm not really sure why you need to eat crow because of Peko. Our defense wouldn't have been any better with him here. The problem was our LBs, not the line.

If it makes you feel better about peko its not like the Denver Defense got better this year with him
