Re: 2013 Bengals Discussion (Part 2)
I love the Monday overreactions. Just 4 weeks ago after one football game Jaworski declared that Chip Kelly's offense was going to revolutionize the NFL.
Couple of things to take into consideration. It is hard to win NFL games on the road, period. Secondly, the Browns have a legit defense with a CB who has gone toe to toe with AJ Green back to college.
That was probably Andy's worst game since his rookie year. He was missing his target high and never seemed to get into a groove. BJGE should be on the field only to spell Bernard. Guy looks to be a step slower this season and running against a stout DLine is a recipe for disaster. The Bengals really screwed the game up in the 1st half when they settled for a chip shot FG and then was stuffed on 4th and short. They should have walked way with at least 10 points instead of 3.
Bryan Hoyer made enough plays against a banged up secondary to win a football game. The Bengals DLine made things too easy on Hoyer until the second half. The final TD the Browns scored was a killer but the offense did little to help. When AJ is shut down guys like Sanu, Gresham, and Jones MUST step up. They didn't yesterday.
Its not a bad loss, its not going to define their season. Its a game they should have won but didn't. Now the task gets tougher facing a Patriots team that is finding ways to get things done. Hopefully Nelson and Hall are healed up and ready to play.
