I'm no homer, this team has flaws but here are somethings that might get you through the day for you fans biting your nails like angsty acne-scarred teenage girls waiting to get asked to prom
Reasons you should step away from the ledge:
The OL learning new blocking assignments, give them more than 1 quarter of live play (THAT DOESN'T COUNT) to get it right.
Starting RT (As bad as he was last year) was not starting
Starting RG/C missed time in training camp, so they're playing catch up
Bengals defense should have known pretty much every single play that was coming, as the Sparano said explicitly, this would be vanilla. That means running out of runs sets, and passing out of pass sets.
The "chunk yardage plays" off of our 1st defense were on underneath plays, which in all likelihood were not schemed for specifically as, well, none of it was schemed.
It's the first ****ing game of the preseason, chill out.
Reasons you should stay on the ledge or jump:
You enjoy looking down great distances
