Re: Game thread: Bengals and Steelers - part deux
I don't know how effective the no huddle will be if the Bengals can't stop the run.
Let's say the Steelers win the toss, execute a twelve play drive culminating in a touchdown that last six or seven minutes.
Now let's say the Bengals go no huddle, and three and out.
Not a good scenario, but one that's very real.
They really need to clamp down on the run, not only for the sake of the defense, but it will absolutely kill their offensive strategy if they don't.
It's all about man e mano. Snot bubbles, blood, spit, sweat, and mud. If they run, the Bengals will need to run. When they throw, they'll need the deep ball to Chad. Other than that, grind them into the grass.
