    It is a place for him to improve but that stat means that he's dropping a pass every other game...whereas in yesterday's game, he contributed 2 TDs. His positives far outweigh the negatives

    So we're talking about upgrading at WR #4? This team has far, far greater needs than a 4th WR

    Re: Cincinnati Bengals - Part Four

    Running Mixon up the gut for 1-2 yards a pop to "establish the run" is stupid.

    The Bengals don't have the talent on their offensive line to do this. Quick outs and screens accomplish the same thing in cases like these. Pass to setup the run for this group, not the other way around.

    This offense has the tools to be more of a "Greatest Show On Turf" back-in-the-day Rams offense. But Taylor calls plays more like the Bettis-Steelers days. It's stupid. The playcalling doesn't match the talent.

    I'm surprised Taylor isn't running the triple option. That's how aware he seems to be.

    This.

    Actually Zac is all over the board on this. He's still feeling his way through this. Last yr he had Burrow throwing 50-60x/game. That's not good either

    Well, he totaled the Ferrari last season.

    This season, he's afraid to take it on the highway.

    My favorite part yesterday was in OT, when he ran it up the gut on 1st and 2nd down for little gain to setup 3rd and long. And this was right after the lightbulb went on for Taylor finally, that the 49ers secondary was trash, they were compensating for it, and how you exploit it.

    Nah let's just run it...

    Re: Cincinnati Bengals - Part Four

    While a year ahead of schedule, the North is unexpectedly giftwrapped for the taking this season and Zac Taylor as offensive coordinator is clearly holding back the team.

    They are 4-6 overall and 2-4 at home against teams not named Baltimore and Pittsburgh. 2-4 since the 5-2 start. Double digit early deficits and slow offensive starts at home vs. Jax, GB, Cleveland, Chargers and now the 49ers.

    The offense is clearly being outschemed by better defensive coordinators and game planning in the majority of 1st halves.

    Checkdowns, screens, anything to slow down the pass rush - seems to be missing in this offense. Along with way too predictable play calling leading to obvious and too many needless 3rd down and long passing situations. It has to be fun to be a DL or Edge rusher against this predictable offensive scheme.

    Chase is 21 and 3rd in TDs, 5th in yards. Tough crowd.

    I said this earlier in the year and it sucks I have to say it again: Joe Burrow is the guy. Let him be the guy. It's simpler than Taylor is making it out to be.

    I would rather Burrow throw an INT and lose in OT than what actually happened. Let the guy make plays.

    It absolutely crushed the momentum, the Bengals had them on their heels and Zac let them of the hook
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    I think its fair to say that he has had some key drops this season.

    There was one key play in the Red Zone where Burrow went to the underneath guy when Chase was wide open to the corner. I say that not nit picking at Burrow, just that he is still learning. There are still growing pains with him and he still makes mistakes.

    I didn't love going Mixon back to back in the Redzone in OT. But at the same time, I don't know enough to know if those were good calls or not. Dropping Burrow back every snap is a recipe for disaster with this OLine. I do think the Bengals are at their best when Mixon is running the ball well because it takes some pressure off Burrow.

    IMO the game was lost on two muffed punts. This team isn't at the point where they can overcome those types plays. In essence the Bengals gave the 49ers around 50 free yards, twice yesterday.
