Maybe the D looked good because they were playing the Bears with Cutler. Cincy actually seems to be a decent team this year. Would be going for 2-0 if not for a fluky play last week.

It's still the O-line. 60 yards of rushing in the first three quarters isn't very good, and not being able to move the ball on the ground makes doing it in the air that much more difficult.

Yea, it seems like Rodgers can't stand in the pocket cause there is always a Bengal in his face. He isn't getting away from them very well either.

I'm so glad I'm not a Packer fan, they are ruining the image of our state

All my enthusiasm from last week just went down the toilet. This offensive line is horrid. They need to sign someone or make a trade. Ted Thompson wont do that so we are stuck with what we have and I dont see them improving that much over the course of the season. I was concerned when they didnt go after anyone to improve the offensive line and those concerns seem to be valid now.

Ted Thompson needs to go. His inability to sign any free agents worth a damn are hurting our chances of being a Super Bowl contender.

They just allowed one player to sack Rodgers 5 ****ing times.

Your right. I mean to win the game and the O-line couldn't give him time to throw the ball. We have a good young QB who can't do anything because no on blocks. TT has all these project O-linemen who with time will turn into solid starters. Well no they didn't, they suck. Looks like an early draft pick next year..

I wouldnt go as far as an early draft pick. This team is good enough to win the division. But this team will be more like 9-7 or 10-6 rather than 12-4 or 13-3.

That was a bull**** ending. The ball was snapped and there were Bengal players still in the neutral zone. The Packers should of had one more play.

Bah, let's move on. It's just Week 2. Better to have beaten the Bears and lose to the Bengals than the other way around. In-division games are crucial.

I partially agree. However, when looking at the schedule I saw this is an automatic win. So, either the Packers are not as good as expected or the Bengals are much better than expected. It is probably a mixture of both though.

It's almost habit to think of the Bengals as the Bungles and think automatic win but they're no pushover, and could even be a wildcard sleeper in the AFC.

Then again, my expectation for the Pack wasn't that great going in. Without an O-line you've got nothing much. I'm thinking something like 9-7, only because of a weak division.
