Does anybody deserve an MVP this week? Ok. Sure. AJ Green made me reconsider my favorite color, but the MVP in that game was on the other side of the field.
What about unsung hero of the week? Be honest with yourself. You don't feel like singing after a loss to the Browns. Do you? That would be like getting beat up by a girl on the playground and then going around talking about how tough your are. That's just embarrassing.
You want to bitch. And so do I. Go ahead. Get it out of your system. So let's talk about the Goat of the Week instead.Fortunately, there are plenty of candidates to choose from.
(A) Andy Dalton - 3 Int's, 1 Pick 6, 1 Fumble. He's almost too obvious of a choice. I'm not going to pretend to be a QB coach, but I will give my analysis: that's bad.
(B) The Defensive Line - 2 QB hits. What happened to the pass rush that was supposed to lay out opposing QBs in the horizontal position all year? Brandon Wheedon had more vertical than Vince Carter (Toronto version, not Dallas).
(C) The Receiver by Committee Plan (Binns and Tate) - 7 targets, 23 yards, 3 receptions. Ok, I bought the hype too. I love rooting for underdogs. The problem is that underdogs are underdogs because they don't usually win.
(D) The Secondary - It's not that they're playing bad, it's that they aren't playing good. Can somebody please get an interception? This problem dates back to last year.
(E) Other - I'm guessing somebody is going to blame the coaches even though it's usually next to impossible to prove that the coaches had a bad gameplan (since you can't really know what their gameplan was)... Ahh Screw it. It's Mike Brown's fault!
