My thoughts on the jets loss

The bengals played the game last night like teams play in the final minute of the game.  It was basically the prevent defense as a metaphor for the entire gameplan.  They went out to see what NY would throw at them and to see what they could do.  It was obvious we can run up the gut on them, especially if you look at LJ's production.  They were quick to the edge, which leads me to believe we'll see less BScott this week.  But we did really well returning kicks and our receivers can get open, the drops obviously weren't planned, but I have a reasoning for those as well.  The receivers didn't want to get hit.  Plain and simple.  Yeah it's a little wimpy and not NFL football, but those catches will be made this week.  But when you're going across the middle against a team that has everything to lose, you know you're getting hit and it looked like no one wanted to take those shots last night.  Also, there was no unbalanced line usage until JTO was in the game and he couldn't get people lined up in an airport.  Horrible game manager.  

 

On d, they showed absolutely nothing as well and it was pretty apparent they didn't want to tackle anyone because of a fear of getting hurt.  Again, not the way to play the game, but I think they were looking ahead to this week.  You know who you're going to play, so why not get all you can out of them.  I see them bouncing back, especially with geathers, peko, and crocker back.  Nelson got owned, we all agree with that.

 

Last but not least, the bengals play well against 3-4 defenses and palmer has consistently owned rex ryan defenses for years.  There's a lot to be hopeful about.  I think this team can take it to the next level.  I just think they're horrible at tanking games.
