  1. Week 3: Bengals @ Steelers

    Trae Waynes is a faerie being we have created with our minds to make sense of and protect ourselves from the bad defense we perceive in the Bengals environment.

    Truth be told I don't care what Taylor tells the media. Coachspeak is ordinary enough. But he earns the ire he gets if he doesn't win. Shut up and win.

    Imagine for one moment... A universe... Where Trae Waynes plays football for the Bengals.

    There's one for Jessie's agent to scribble down for later.
  5. Week 3: Bengals @ Steelers

    Plan better. Coach better. Be better.

    Bengals defense through two weeks (yeah yeah sample size): Total yards per game: 304.5 (6th) Rushing yards per game: 95.0 (11th) Rushing yards per attempt: 3.4 (7th) Passing yards per game: 209.5 (9th) Passing yards per attempt: 5.7 (5th) Yards per play: 4.5 (4th) Points per game: 22.0 (T10th) Takeaways: 2 (T17th)

    Find a way in Pittsburgh and I will no longer give a single shit about the Bears game.

    Some of the empty-set throws were pre-snap reads, suggesting Burrow had decided where to throw the ball before he'd even taken the snap. In a situation like that, Boyd or anyone could theoretically streak wide open and it's irrelevant, because Burrow has already elected to throw to Mixon (i.e. into the back of the defender blanketing Mixon). The same thing happened at least twice with a blanketed Higgins. Is that Burrow's fault? Probably to some extent. I can't imagine that's happening though without it being a deliberate element of the game plan and the play call.

    Looks like the entire division is 1-1.

    Those flailing drunk punches are reminiscent of Eli Apple tackling.

    The offensive gameplan was dog shit. I'm not normally the one rendering those scathing assessments. The offensive gameplan was dog shit.

    Defense has had a good enough game to win, but they haven't made the critical tackles when they have had to. Anyway this late push is a fluke and I hope the team understands this is no 20-17 football game.

    Make a single stop and this can be a win. Somehow.
