A decent career backup forced into a role he's unqualified for. Then again, he is slow and incapable of making big plays, just the kind of back Marvin loves (see Benson, Cedric).
It's just amazing that with so many picks in last year's draft they totally ignored the RB position. At some point, you need some speed and elusiveness back there

AJ Green is really, really, really, really good.
I love the adjustment to the triple option. If they're gonna run that offense send someone to hit RG3 every time. We may give up some yards but they won't risk it for too long.
Dalton is locked in right now
Dalton has shut me up. I was very concerned about a slump for him this year, but so far he's looked even better than last year.
The D, however, is worse than I could have imagined. The D-line still makes plays, but the linebackers and secondary are horrid.
Wow what a pass to Hawkins! This offense has looked great so far. Can't remember the last time the Bengals had this much quality depth at the WR position.
Dalton is locked in. Hawkins just took one to the house...up 14 now.
The defense is questionable at best right now. There are plenty of problems, but one thing that just drives me nuts is the lack of tackling. It seems to be a consistent problem for this defense.
Embarrassing end for the replacement refs. They had no idea what was going on.
Nice road win.
Great win by the Bengals, never easy to go into Washington and pick up a win. Looks like the Bengals will have to morph into the San Diego Chargers of the late 70's early 80's to get some wins.
If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.
I miss Bob Bratkowski . Just try and imagine where this team would be if he was still calling the plays. Watching this current offense with Gruden is fun and unpredictable.
On the flip side, this defense is abysmal. Unless they get lucky and force a lot of turnovers, they won't beat any 'good' teams this year.
If I was Marvin, I'd let go of Terrence Newman for those two plays. How does an NFL player make two plays that bad? He has to go.
Malaluga might be the worst linebacker I've ever seen. He's slow, he can't tackle, and he seems to have a knack for being in the wrong spot all the time. Maybe if he did the opposite of what he thought was right he'd be pretty good? I don't know, but he is really hurting the defense.
