Re: 2010, Week 1- Bengals @ Patriots, "Opening Day of NFL 2010"
At the end of the day, show up ready for a fight and that's a ballgame for 60 minutes. You can't play 29:40 of football and beat New England. The fact that they got it to 31-17 and were a stop away from getting back in the game has to be a positive on some small level.
That offense will light up the scoreboard if they go no huddle more often. Too many weapons for a tiring defense to stop. As soon as they upped the tempo New England couldn't stop them. Other than the INT they were carving up the Pats defense. Gresham and Shipley showed what they can and will be today. Really open things up, Carson has never had 4 legit weapons. And when Leonard gets healthy that's a 5th weapon to use on third down plays.
The NFL is about week 2. Beat the Ravens and the Bengals are just fine. If they can overcome the Stokley loss last year, this loss shouldn't have any lasting effect.
