Why do hate on Ryan. He seems like a genuine typ of guy that calls it how he sees it. I'm also glad he didn't take all the blame for the defense playing poorly the last couple of weeks.
When Rob Ryan is lacking confidence, look out. It could get ugly this weekend.
Yeah he's definitely not his bragging self right now.
He probably knows they could easily hang 30 on us this weekend, and knows the personnel he has out there right now can't do much to stop it.
I was thinking more like 60.
or maybe he's tired of his predictions going south..
I am getting tired of all of his barking on the sidelines and NO BITE from his defensive schemes/players.
This defense hasn't had any bite for years. Years before Rob was here. The whole team hasn't...
I think the last time this defense had any nasty or intensity, Roy #31 was on the team.
They have been playing horrible, no doubt.
what is it with this guy...week after week after week of saying he had bad game plans, it was his fault, the defense is not playing well....He seems to be slow to realize that eventually people are going to add this up and conclude he might be the problem. If he was not a Ryan, I think his welcome would have been worn out long ago. He gets a big benefit of people associating him with the good to great defenses his dad and brother had.
Wasn't referring to the past.
Was referring to RR in Dallas.
What if we got an interception this week. Boy! That'd be exciting.
I would gush... Only if we scored though
or maybe not. when he is confident, we often crater; maybe the opposite will happen on Sunday...
Ya think there Robbie? :laugh2:
I think it's a bit unfair at this point to fault Ryan for what this defense is doing. The entire center of his defense has been a turnstile with Lee, Carter and Church out for the season and Ratliff being back and forth. He has a rookie starting at Corner and the other Corner is in his first year. And let's not kid ourselves, this DL as a whole is a bit of a joke when it comes to pass rush. So, honestly, I'm not sure what you guy's were expecting, but, in my mind, what we've gotten is really better than what I expected.
AJ Green, Dalton, Green-Ellis, Gresham, a solid O-line, and some other speedy guys.
The offense needs to be rolling or you could be right.
Make no mistake, the Bengals will score and will likely score in bunches. The question is can they stop Dallas from doing the same. Sack leader or not, I have a feeling the Bengals defense will struggle as well this weekend.
