Give him some receivers to throw to. Could have been a completely different game if there were a healthy Winslow and Edwards out there. That's why we have been throwing more to our TE's. That's also why it's hard to stop the Bengals - they have a solid, balanced attack. I agreed wholeheartedly with Crennel's gameplan going into this one.... if you're gonna beat me, then you are gonna do it with your running game (which keeps the score low/close and eats up the clock. I'm not gonna allow Palmer and his receiving corp, who are a quick strike threat and can put a game out of reach very quickly, to do it. They basically shut down one aspect of the game and took their chances with the other.
It was really the only route that Crennel and the defensive coordinator could take that would give them any chance. And it shows our weakness in the LB position.
But we're 30 Mil under the salary cap and they have already stated that regardless of where they draft, they have pinpointed 6 positions they are gonna improve either via the draft or FA.
But I thought it was one heck of a good game overall.
