kingwilly Posted October 15, 2004 Report Share Posted October 15, 2004 I find this excerpt from Hobson's bengals.com posting very telling of what the situation is:"The word has gone forth, and most likely it has been sent by head coach Marvin Lewis. As if to underscore the importance of it, the Bengals defense left the practice field about five minutes after the offense Thursday to put in some extra work against formations. "Please explain to me exactly what you can accomplish in five EXTRA minutes? Maybe adjust your helmet? Maybe have a water break and have Frazier explain that arm-tackling just won't work this week? If you were Barbarian it might be the amount of time it takes to whack one off.The point is, I doubt that the EXTRA five minutes they spent on formations or whatever is a complete joke. Seriously, if Hobson had written "Fifty extra minutes" I might think, "hmmm. They must be really trying to get this run D in order". But no, he actually makes a point to highlight the FIVE EXTRA MINUTES like that is what is going to make any kind of difference. What a revealing thing about what they are doing.I am pretty fed up. If the run D gets handled by a crap Browns line and Suggs, I will be first to sign a petition to rid Bengaldom of Frazier. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
