    Minter is solid, that defense as a whole will be among the league leaders by the time it's all said and done, IMO........provided of course that the league lets Vontaze actually play football once he comes back.

    they're talented as hell, they just pretty much got hung out to dry.

    Tackle? Tackle? The problem is that they don't, can't, and haven't tackled for years!

    Very true, he sets the tone. And I believe Marvin is handcuffing Guenther. He makes him play conservative instead of letting him do his own thing.

They always play so far off the line that offensive lineman easily get off of their blocks and move to the second level. So many third and shorts and the Ravens just ran it with linebackers getting engulfed by offensive lineman. Or that's how has seemed for over 8 years now. Our linebackers are asked to do too much because we're in the bend but don't break deal.

    Burn the tape and prepare for the Texans. Typical Marvin. Team not prepared, poor clock management, playing conservative when the team should be in desperation mode, etc. Bad Andy showed up in full force. I think he'll bounce back on Thursday. The poor offensive line play does not bode well for the rest of the season. All that MMA training Ogbuehi did apparently didn't do jack to improve his ability to defend against the bull rush.

    I'm not ready to completely abandon ship yet, but obviously the Bengals need to play much better on Thursday night. The only bright spot is the defense only gave up 20 points despite the 5 turnovers, one of which was inside the 5 yard line. Other than the touchdown to Maclin, the Ravens didn't do anything in the air.

    None and THAT was my point months ago. I said the OL would be the worst or near worst in the league and the offense would suffer for it. At best, the OL may become average by year end. It was unrealistic to expect anything from them. Another Bengal team with explosive offensive players but no commitment to the OL. Once again, Mikey and Marvin play checkers while the elite of the league play chess.

    Now, when I talk like that, I get chastised by the apologists. lol

    We're still buffoons in the red-zone and worse than last year. At least last year we would come away with field attempts instead of turnovers.

    When it was 17-0 and Vigil intercepted the ball, I said "Let's just put Bullock out there to kick a field goal and get a quick 3 to make it 17-3". Tobin selected Ogbuehi and Fisher, have had two years to figure out they aren't even average starters and stuck with these idiots. Bodine got thrashed too as usual.
