Hey guys, didn't get to see the game yesterday unfortunately:(
Only reading about stuff now! What the hell happened to the Bengals? Did anyone see it? How bad were they?
I see we struggled on offence yesterday but still won so thats what counts, can I ask, where were the problems? Was it the Oline, Running game, Mcnair or something else?
any feedback be great! thanks:thumbup:
Hey Irish,I started posting what was goiing on in this thread.
What it boiled down to was Maroney and Dillon running all over the Bengals front 7.Lewis being out coached by Belichick.
Thanks a million for that:thumbup:
Can't believe the start we are having...
Pats always come back strong when they lose a game. They havn't lost back to back games since 2002:eek:
In my opinion 2 things
1 ~ Maroney and Dillon ran wild all over the bengals. This has always been the Bengals weakness and they were exposed again. Maroney looks absolutely great...will he be the starter sooner rather than later?
2 ~ lack of protection for palmer ~ he was constantly under pressure either being hit or someone sneaking through the line and the turnovers from fumbles really killed the bengals

There was a very bad miscommunication between McNair and Mason yesterday. Mason broke of a patern thinking McN was in trouble, McN didn't see, so he still thew the long ball (1st INT). Mason also dropped a perfect pass that would have been a TD. Also we had driven down to the Chargers 2 yard line and Wilcox fumbled a McN shovel pass. So I guess Mason had a bad day.
Also the running game never really got rolling. I don't know weather to balme the O-line, Jamal, or the coaches for that one?
