Re: Week 2- Bengals vs. Ravens
The real question is this: does Bratkowski make all the plays on his own or does Marvin have any say? I'd really like to know. What do they talk about after the game when they watch the tape together? Does Marvin question him or does he just accept the poor job Brat's doing?
Once again, I don't like Brat, but I don't put all the blame on him by a long-shot. I just don't understand how someone with the creativity of an infant sleeping in a car seat is in control of calling plays for an NFL team. It's something I just cannot comprehend. Nor ever will.
Where was the no-huddle this week? Why not throw a shuttle-pass to Bernard Scott once in a while? He is a weapon, why not use him? How about TO in Redzone? 3 and 6 on the 7-yard line and you throw a 2-yard pass? And not only that, it appeared to be planned to protect the big field goal. I could go on and on.
In my opinion, all of those instances, plus how undisciplined this team is, is what irritates me about the coaching staff. They just don't seem to have a clue. I'm liking the talent a lot this year, just not the captains leading the ship. Thank god Zimmer, the next Bengals head coach, is still around.
