Bengals QB Carson Palmer completed only 39 percent of his passes (17 for 44).

"It's a loss that doesn't sit well with us," coach Marvin Lewis said. "We just didn't get things done. We had some chances. We didn't make some third downs. ... We missed some throws, and that ended up being the difference."
49ERS 20 - BENGALS 13
The Bengals could not get on track offensively, and that ultimately cost them in a 20-13 loss at San Francisco on Saturday night. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Say what you want about the beleaguered Bengals defense, but it was the struggling offense that hurt the Bengals at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday. We're just not doing what we need to do on third down," said quarterback Carson Palmer, "It's a key point in the game. I know I need to do better on third down. It's the quarterback's responsibility." -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
That's why they're 5-2 and we're 2-5," Bengals receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh said. "Good teams put it in the end zone. Teams like us kick field goals." "You have to remember what's been going on and what is going on in the man's head. We haven't been converting on third down," Jones said. "Us as an offense on third down, we have to give that man confidence to know and to understand that we're going to go in there and do it. We haven't been doing that. That's not that man's fault for making that call." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cincinnati's offense sputtered down the stretch, managing 22 yards and one first down on its first three possessions of the fourth quarter. "We're just not a very good football team," quarterback Carson Palmer said. "I don't have words for the way we feel in this locker room about this game, about this season. And it's frustrating."

Yea I understand how you feel Carson. :D

didn;t someone mention the other day that ESPN talking heads were talking about Derek Anderson and Carson Palmer, but not Ben? They can have them, I'll take Ben every day and three times on Sunday.

Ben is the third best QB in the NFL...still he gets no love.

That's mostly because ESPN is only worried about stats. Ben is mostly concerned with winning balgames. You know that if Carson palmer throws for 400+, 3 TD and 4 INT in a 45-42 loss to Seattle, and Ben throws for 200 (all of which are in the first half, because he won't have to throw in the second) of a 28-3 win over Cleveland, you know who's getting the love. Like I said, lettem have CP.
