    I agree we have never really used a TE the way we could. But that really has nothing to do with why other teams pwn us with their TEs. That has more to do with having a poor pair of safeties (for how long) and average LBs (Maualuga has been a real disappointment).
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    What's our excuse for not using a RB (in the passing game) either?

    Chris Perry got hurt.

    The Bengals actually have used Brian Leonard pretty well but its in small samples. The feature backs like Benson and Rudi and even Dillon never seemed to be good reliable pass catchers. But the Bengals really have never used the screen pass to much effect. It seems like some teams fall in love with it and others just don't use it.

    Past history is irrelevant. We have a new O coordinator with a new system. I've never heard of a west coast offense that doesn't throw to the RBs. Bernard Scott should be the featured target of screen passes yet he's AWOL.

    It's impossible to talk play calling completely though, since I watched it in on tv. You can't tell on tv if receivers are covered consistently, which is why I said that in the last post about not being sure if they were covered all day or what.
    What did we have like 6 plays down there? Kind of a small sample.

    The second first and goal series was a run up the middle, a QB bootleg with few options, and a fade route that barely ever seemed to work with Carson Palmer, let alone a rookie QB. That was an ugly sequence, small sample or not.

    I'm glad Brat is gone, but Gruden's been uneven so far. Some of it is personnel and execution, obviously, but some of it's the playcalling. Marvin said as much in his press conference this week.

    Dalton so far: 4 for 18 for 107 yards and 2 INTs (1 returned for a TD)

    Well, it sounds like Marvin's got 'em rolling today, especially on offense. Dalton with a 12.3 QB rating near the end of the half. That's spectacularly bad

    17-3 after Daltons 2nd pick leads to a TD before halftime.

    If it was still 10-3 I would say bring in Gradkowski. Now, might as well leave Dalton in there and learn. No chance to win this one.

    Pretty dumb how much our fans are booing.

    I can understand it some days, but not so much today. Or especially on that drive.

    The play calling is terrible. Brat is gone but Marvin still runs this team....and he has yet to understand the modern game on any level. His goal is to play no to lose.... that is all.

    The highs and lows of a team with a bunch of rookies...

    Awesome start to this half though.

    3rd and goal on the 3 is not a clear running down in the NFL. It was a good playcall and a good throw, AJ just missed the catch. Kicking the field goal was the obvious right call, coming away empty handed would have been a killer.

    Booing that is dumb.
