That’s all I could think of while reading post-game comments from Cincinnati Bengals running back Jeremy Hill. His team got dry-humped up and down the field on Thursday night by the Cleveland Browns. So bad was his quarterback, Andy Dalton, that he threw more passes to Browns cornerback Buster Skrine than he did to some of his own receivers.
However, Hill overlooked that fact and went on to say the Browns were “worse than he thought.”
“They’re probably worse than I thought, to be honest with you. They didn’t do anything special to me. I mean, respect to them, they won the game. But that’s all I’ll give them,” Hill said, via ESPN.com. “Those guys, they’re not that good. It was on us [Thursday]. We gave them the game, in my opinion. They didn’t do anything special. We just gave them the game. They just sat back with coverage the whole day.”
When the opposing quarterback has a rating of 2.0 — good for fifth worse since 1960 — OF COURSE YOU SIT BACK IN COVERAGE. If fact, had Dalton just thrown every pass at the ground, he would have fared much better.
Had Andy Dalton thrown every pass directly into the ground last night, his passer rating would have been 39.6. His passer rating was 2.0

Clearly Hill was upset about his lack of productivity last night and he let it get the best of him while being interview.
“We’ll play them again, and we’ll see what happens.”
Indeed they will. December 14 in Cleveland.
