Spor_tees Posted October 9, 2011 Report Share Posted October 9, 2011 Each game we watch and comment online about the good plays, the bad plays, the good players, and the bad players. For some reasons, the same names keep coming up, but yet the coaches don't do anything about it.Tate is a VERY inconsistent kick returner. One play he will let a punt hit the ground and it will bounce another 20 yards, then the next he'll make a 15 yard return. One play he will catch a kickoff in the endzone and return it to the 15, the next he returns a kick to the 40. His habit of catching punts inside the 10 yard line is very discouraging too. I don't know I would like to see Hawkins back there giving a try to see if there are different results.Nate Livings...well only one thing to say about the guy, he sucks balls. The guy gets pushed into the backfield on run plays, pass plays, and I bet the defense pushes him past the Gatorade cooler on the bench. The guy is aweful, I mean he got pancaked onto the quarterback for a sack! How humiliating! Andre Smith is officially a bust. I think the Bengals are admitting to that when they didn't pick up his club option year. He is bad in pass blocking and he can't run block unless he is engaging the man in front of him. Every play I see that he is pulling outside to block a safety or outside linebacker, he misses the block or doesn't move them out of the hole. His position needs to be filled early in the draft.Cedric Benson was definitely not at his best today. On several occasions he moved laterally too much which allowed backside coverage to make plays. One thing that also struck me today was Benson not following his blocks. Pressly would hit right off the tackle and there would be a hole there, but instead Benson would bump outside behind Gresham's block and end up getting tackled. There were also several times Dalton would put the TE in motion, then Benson would run to the opposite side. I'm not sure if this was designed or not, but it didn't work. I know part of Benson's problems today came from poor run blocking, but he also needs to take some blame for making poor choices.I am really glad they won today, because even though the Jags are a poor team, it still means something to win on the road in the NFL.
