Trolling The Nation During Cowboys vs Bengals: "That Cowboys O-line Is Unreal!"

New, comments

Read what other fans had to say as they watched the Cowboys dominate the Bengals.

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images

As we've done repeatedly in the past, today we're going to look at what fans of other NFL teams had to say while they were watching the Cowboys beat the Bengals on Sunday. All quotes below are taken directly from the open game threads from the SB Nation team sites indicated in front of every comment. Some minor edits have been made to improve the overall legibility of the quotes and to satisfy the site guidelines of our board, but no other changes have been made, no commentary added.

We usually reserve these Trolling The Nation posts for big wins, preferably against a division opponent. But being as starved for wins as we are, we're indulging a bit in the TTN posts this year, even if it comes at a price: Bengal tears just don't taste as sweet as those of a divisional rival. Also, because many fans had their attention focused elsewhere during the Cowboys games, our TTN posts of late have been a bit light on quantity.

But so be it. Here we go:

Pre-game and First Quarter
Bengals Watching PIT game hoping they lose. They are wearing those terrible uniforms again. They deserve to lose just for wearing them.

Posted by CaliBengalsFan#97 on Oct 9, 2016 | 4:31 PM
Bengals I tell you what, Cowboys offensive line is nasty. That's why you draft a great center early in the draft.

Posted by Mindkrak on Oct 9, 2016 | 4:43 PM
Bengals Let's make Prescott make some plays here...
Posted by The Van Buren Boys on Oct 9, 2016 | 4:44 PM
Bengals Good job of getting out of the hole. Maybe the defense can keep them pinned deep this time.
Posted by smokin 86 on Oct 9, 2016 | 4:44 PM

Posted by mr.and.mrs.sparky on Oct 9, 2016 | 5:04 PM
Bengals Remember all the talk about how bad Dallas's DL was? They’re kinda crushing our OL right now. No freaking way this is league average.

Steelers Byron Jones would have been a good pickup
Posted by dinner on Oct 9, 2016 | 6:13 PM
Seahawks I want to know where they've gotten this serviceable defense from? It drives me crazy that they’ve almost used no draft resources on the defense and it went from trash to okay seemingly out of thin air. It also drives me crazy that the Elliott draft pick hasn’t blown up in their face. I thought for sure that was a stupid move in the first round.
