Fluse has to address this.  I don’t care what they’re ranked, or were ranked.  They eye test means more than stats.  

 

 That first half was abysmal...again!

I think Lenard is a huge part of what’s going on too

hip hip turay hip hip turay  

Personally, I think there a lot of talent that’s poorly schemed and coached.   I'm not saying they should fire Fluse, it’s not like there’s a young Monterey Kiffen waiting in the wings.  But

They aren’t elite.  They are good, at times.  They are poor at others.  What scared me the most was the d-line just getting owned by a subpar Bengals line.  That’s 3 of 4 last halves of football what is supposed to be the strength of the defense got owned by a lesser opponent.

1st half defense struggled but give a little credit to Bengals. They did a good job at the LOS and Tee Higgins (someone I wanted), Joe Mixon, Burrow, & AJ are all ballers. Flus made adjustments and they looked much better in the 2nd half. Remember against cover 2 defense when you play very accurate quarterbacks you can get exposed when you get little to no pressure (which is what we saw in the first half).

Do you know how long Leonard was ruled out for?  I guess it's not a bad time to have a bye lol.  

 

I'm also curious to know about Turay, Pittman and Campbell.

Maybe but I don’t think Leonard is going to instantly fix all the struggles especially on the line and secondary.  Honestly, at least last week, the linebackers were pretty good,  still you don’t lose a player like Leonard and not feel it.  I’ll concede that.

I think Parris Campbell's injury is more serious and he won't be back until late in the season.

 

I would assume Darius Leonard would be back after bye. He seemed to be close. Turay is able to come off of PUP now and Pittman was expected to be back after the bye.

Colts aren’t saying,  he was doubtful today so there was at least a chance at sometime this week they thought he might be able play.  I am hoping that means he’s back after the bye.  Last I heard Turay and Pittman were sounding like they might be back the bye. I get the impression IF Campbell is back it will be late in the season.

"Monterey" Kiffin? 

 

Is that Monte's stripper sister/sometimes defensive coordinator?

Atleast we made adjustments. They played better in the second. Leonard not playing is a huge difference in the defense. I don't think his importance is appreciated enough.

Correction- *the first quarter  

 

I wouldn’t be worried, doesn’t help when your offense turns the ball over the first minute of the game. And then takes it till mid in the second to get its groove going. 
 

Once again our D shut down the opponent in the second half; something great Defenses do

The scary thing is that this is how they looked versus the jags.  They were getting stood up and pushed around most of the game.

Xavier does look like a upgrade to Desir so that’s good also. Rock has to stop taking dumb penalties. That gave them 3 pts.

That was 1x.  I don't think he has a habit of body slamming people.

I don’t but I’d guess he’ll be back after the bye.

We’re still very good against the run. I have no issues with our run defense. 
 

Pass coverage is a literal crapshoot. We may pick off 3 passes and get 7 sacks, we may be giving huge games to guys no one has ever heard of before the game. There’s no rhyme or reason to what we get and when.

Which is why I am not buying Leonard coming back is going to fix everything.

Did you see the Bengals touchdowns at the goal-line today?  The QB sneak for a yard that turned into a three to four yard TD in particular was embarrassing.

You can’t win them all all the time. But after sitting through years of Dungy, Caldwell, and Pagano run defenses that were butter tough at best I’m happy to say we’re doing ok with run defense.

Well the bengals had almost 100 yards rushing today and three TDs running the ball.  I am not sure today is the day to puff the chest out about the run defense.  They were okay at best vs the run today.

The pass rush is the problem and the solution. These past two weeks, our pass rush has been equaled to what it looked like last year against the saints. If that's not fixed by the Ravens game, Lamar might break some NFL records.

Again, you can’t dominate every single day. Some days will be better, some will be worse. The average is still way better than we’ve endured.

I will give some props to Willis as well. Announcers said today he hasn’t missed a tackle all season. Pretty impressive stat 

I give the whole team props. This is one of those games that should have been a loss but they stayed tough and pulled it out. 

Yes they gave up 21 points in the first quarter plus a few seconds, but only 6 after that. 

Rivers threw a pick but he did put it in the air 44 times for 371 yds and 3 tds.  Complain all you want, that is not bad enough to make it an issue.

There was no panic and they made the plays to win the game.

But they only averaged 3.1yds a carry and that is with a 25yd reverse.

 

Take that away and they averaged 2.4ypc

This is the third time in six games the defense hasn’t been dominate.  That’s not a dominate defense.

 

they have been dominate against the Jets who everyone is dominate against, Bears who have a sub par offense with a new QB making his first start, and the Vikings who is the one that has been the most impressive.

    • Kliff Kingsbury's play calling has not impressed me whatsoever, just like Mike McCarthy in Dallas. Right now, they were relying too much on Kyler Murray's rushing till they are now forced to use their RBs more. Murray still does not use his TEs and slot WRs enough. Herbert as a rookie is a better passer than Kyler Murray, IMO, with the way he distributes it around. 
    • Yeah, its just one analysts opinion, but he seems to have nailed what we have seen with RYS already.  The other analysts opinion on DN also identify similar things (notably poor footwork, which explains getting beat and grabbing).  And he had only one year of CB experience at the FBS level.  A transfer from FCS-now-DII Presbyterian,    https://thedraftnetwork.com/player/rock-ya-sin   And not a real strong summary, but maybe accurate:   If he can avoid being a penalty machine and keep from getting matched up against the speedier receivers in the league, Ya-Sin has a shot to be a strong no. 2 outside cornerback in a press-man scheme at the next level. His effort and intensity will impress coaches, especially given how he defends the run, but his mediocre-at-best athletic testing is definitely pause-worthy, especially given the level of competition he faced in his one season at the FBS level.  
    • The Cards baffle me. They should be playing a lot better than what they are. Lots of inconsistency, to the point they remind me of the Luck era teams. 
    • To your first point, I am not saying that Rock should have improved over his first two years.  Being drafted high and having a high grade placed upon him that is something you absolutely expect.  I am saying that based on your two year model some players are different.  I am saying that in my eyes Rock is different because of his smaller football background compared to many others.     As far as his stats this year compared to last, penalties are something to get use to while he is being targeted much higher than the others (Rhodes and Moore for easy comparison).  Again, this is something I see as "fixable" still.  I have never blamed covid as you mentioned but having a drastically different off-season can effect some but I will not say that is a massive impact with this. Now mentioning Green or Werner, that is being over dramatic in my eyes.  Green was over drafted and Werner was an all-around terrible fit, plus I think Grigson was terrible at his job while here.   Mo Allie-Cox is an UDFA that has made an NFL team and shows good promise at TE.  He doesn't need to be top 15 to show my point of growing in the NFL with limited football experience.  He has grown at blocking and becoming a pass catcher.  He will remain a TE for us next year and hopefully continues to show growth.
