Open it up in week two and go with the no huddle for the rest of the season.
Zimmer needs to go back to the drawing board. I would hate to be a member of that D this week because he is going to be all over those guys for poor play and blown assignments.
The lack of a pass rush was way more important than blown assignments. It's impossible to defend for 10 seconds at this level.
The Bengals also need to find a way to get rid of Dhani Jones. He was the worst player on the field by a country mile.
This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.
