    With Pendry taking over and having two weeks to prepare, do you think your O will have a lot of new looks that the Bengals D hasn't seen on films? This makes me a little nervous as a Bengals fan. Though I don't know how substantially he could improve the O-line in two weeks. I'm new to the board. Thanks for having me. Here's to a great, safe game on Sunday.

    If you're having trouble with protecting the QB, get the ball out of his hands faster - slants, crossing routes, runs, and passes to RB are the calls to stock up on.

    Welcome aboard! Nobody really knows what to expect. I'd think you could plan for a heavy serving of Davis and Morency sprinkled with a few tosses to Johnson. Palmer was oil to Capers water. Pendry is jelly to Capers peanut butter. They would be thrilled if Carr only throws 10-15 times. With the Bengals D only seeming to have one soft spot, the plan should fit right into what Pendry/Capers would look to do anyways. Run, run and run again.

    Thanks. I hope the Bengals D-line tightens up soon. At least they aren't getting killed outside on the dump passes to backs and TEs like the last couple years.

    I think most of your problems was in your linebacker group and not your line. Odell Thurman has made a big impact so far....great pick.

    I think the Bengals D will see more dump offs to the RB and TE's.
    Pendry goal is for Carr to git rid of the ball quicker and have a slow game controlling offense.

    I feel like the changes should be good ones. I am not sure exactly what to expect from Pendry, but it HAS to be better than Palmer. I have been saying since the second season that we needed to get rid of him. I am hoping that Carr perks up and that we can get him some massive coverage. Lets get this thing back on track!

    The formula to shut down our offense is really simple...blitz, blitz, and then blitz.

    Getting rid of Palmer was certainly the right move, but I think Pendry is a band-aid and not the solution. Its amusing that some here think the former O-line coach is now going to have better blocking because he is the O-cord. This thinking just defies logic. I expect to see some mix up in play calling, but without a good O-line the results may be similar to the last 2 games and your guys should be in good shape.

    I would love to be wrong... :texflag:

    I agree. I was including the LBs in the D-line (Being lazy). Odell has made a humungous difference. And one of the reasons they drafted Pollack was his quickness to get outside and stop the outlets.

    Sorry, new here guys. Yes, I do agree with the Defensive problem as well. Yes, we should have found another O-coord in the off season. Why they waited SO LONG I will never ever claim to understand. We have to just get our act together. I feel like we have gone back three years. Don't get me wrong. I will always be a HUGE fan and I will ALWAYS argue with my husband over the whole Texans/Cowboys thing. But we REALLY have to come back and be a TEAM.

    That's pretty good observing there, no doubt!!! In the last 2 years Cincy tried to sign at least 2 big name defensive tackles, Warren Sapp, & Corey Simon!!! Sapp?, well he's Sapp, not much to say there- (that you don't allready know) But look at the job the Colts are doing on defense!!! Makes me REALLY wish they could have gotten him into the system!!! The BENGALS could have been a lot tougher on thier run defense, & letting the D-linemen pin thier ears back & come at people a lot more!!! But we can't complain---We feel like Coach Lewis is going to show them the way to the promised land!!! With a strong crop of interior D-linemen available in the up-comming draft, I think everybody knows where they are probably going to go with the 1st pick!!! (I really wish they could get thier hands on A.J. Hawk, O.S.U.) but he'll probably be long gone by then, we're hopeful for a good season---sorry---NOT a jab---But I've had fun this week picking at y'all (y'all was K.Y.-not Texas-lol)---& we'll see ya Sunday!!! Bring your dancin' shoes, I'm sure Chad will!!! WHO DEY!!! :homer:

    Ever since Takeo Spikes left, the LB's have needed help, when you lose a high 1st round pick & perenial all-pro lb.---It can't help but slow the building process!!!---I'm so anxious for David Pollack to begin to really shine!!!---He gets great push on the pass rush, & though it has'nt shone up on the stat sheet, He's caused a lot of linemen to fold & buckle into the qb, thus causing at least 3 of those picks. Check out #99 this Sunday. He didn't have much time in training camp (contract) but he's starting to show up!!!---I think you'll like him, He's a real bull (no pun intended)---Sorry, I keep forgeting stuff. This years other MAJOR steal was Chris Henry, He's like a gazelle with great hands! Did you see that catch against the Bears??? The guy looked like he was trying to twist his head off!!!---No call, but would have refused it anyway. That was a great catch!!! I believe he's why Peter Warrick was let go!!!(Warrick was 1st rounder) :bomb:

    Welcome to the board, man. It's always a pleasure to talk football with fellow NFL fans. :)

    I think you'll see a fired up team this week. If nothing else, the changes have definitely woke 'em up!

    On offense, it'll probably be a pretty simple gameplan, as Pendry is committed to dictating his offense (as opposed to Palmer's philosophy of letting defenses dictate what kind of game we are going to call). You'll probably see some dudes get their butts chewed off on the sideline, too, as he's not shy about calling out players that make mistakes. The plays themselves...well, we're not sure what to expect, either, so it'll definitely be an interesting one to watch from that perspective.

    On defense, I really expect to see some fire and aggression, and I'm hoping we see a lot more successful blitzes. There hasn't been any turnovers by our D, and they seem very soft on their coverage the first two games. I really hope this changes, as I know Chad Johnson will eat us alive if we give him anything soft.

    Who Dey started back in 81-82 for Super Bowl XVI---I know it's seems a bit strange, but some college kids from U.C. Bearcats allways went to the games in force. I believe they get the credit for it. Man that stadium would ROCK when they started into it!!! In th A.F.C. Championship game,It drove Dan Fouts, & the San Diego Chargers crazy!!! They had to keep asking the refs for quiet!! & the refs responded by telling Forrest Gregg they would pentalize us for it. So players, Coaches, & staff was waving thier arms for quiet!!!---GREAT TIMES!!!---I was there!!! :ok:Oh allmost forgot---65* below 0*-wind chill

    There was a line from the movie "Stir Crazy"---With Richard Pryor & Gene Wilder.----About a prison rodeo(held in Texas)---A fellow prisoner gave his opinion of a bull to Richard. He said---"A bull is like a train, except for one thing---a train won't back-up to finish the job!!!----LOL---Thought you Texans Fans would like that!!!---------(This was directed to LUCKY for the earlier post about bulls) :ok: :texflag:
