None of this will matter though if we don't play a hell of a lot better than we have been.
I am not sure what team people have been watching. Rob ryan can barely slow a bad offense with our starters.
what we had out there on thanksgiving and sunday was the 3rd qtr preseason defense.
josh brent, marcus spears, dan conner, ernie sims, alex Albright, danny mcray, vince agnew, eric Frampton.
we have no chance on defense against the next four offenses we play. We will need to score in the 40s every game to win most likely.
it sucks but that's where we are at.
the win sunday was fun and I enjoyed it knowing its probably the last, it felt a lot like the Monday night win over the seahawks in 2004. It kept us mathematically in the race but in reality we just have no ability to play defense.
In 04 we pulled out that miracle win in seattle on Monday night football to put us at 5-7. We proceeded to lose 3 of 4. We lost the saints game the next week and that was it.
I imagine we have no ability to block the cincy front four and no ability to slow there offense this week.
I find it interesting in 08 also that it was marvin lewis who said we were a poorly coached team that was very sloppy. I wonder what he thinks now?
