In response to NoMorePensionLooting's comment:
I think the PATS let Tony G have a career game....kept Jones in check.
Notice how the PATS doubled Tony G at the end and Jones started making catches...but it was to late...
Cincy is a game we can win.
Of course we can win. I dont see any unbeatable teams out there. I was just pointing out that TEs usually have a field day on us due to us playing cover 2. When we play almost all game like last week, the TE will go off for 12 for 149 and 2 TDs/ So Yes its be design for TE to beat you, because the outside guys can score from anywhere but Its never by design to NOT be able to stop someone. When you dedicate 2 players to jam him and cover him with a safety over the top, That sais "F This, He is NOT gonna catch the next one" so obviously it was a design but they still wanted to stop Tony G or else why even cover him.
This week we have another young, tall, fast deep threat who was a top WR last year. Why wouldnt Talib get help again? and with the Bengals having a legit run game, gregory will be in the box and a linebacker will have to try and cover Gresham/Eifert. I like to point out HOW we can lose, but I rarely go into games thinking we ARE gonna lose.
We are on the same page.
If the PATS din't clamp down on Jones early he would have killed us, he's that good. Tony G benifited from that.
I know the TE over the middle has been a problem for us.
I believe the Bengals are weak at QB and HC and I believe that combination is usually fatal.
