It was a cheap shot. The Bengals are punks, everybody knows it. That's going to be Marvin Lewis's legacy, dirty football and a record number of player arrests and he still couldn't win anything.

Kind of surprised Marvin Lewis would say this publicly.

What goes around comes around.

Re: Are We Tough Enough?!?

The news is out. Beat the Saints by literally "beating on the Saints".

I'm not complaining, just wish we'd be the aggressor more often.

Tired of physical teams like SF, STL, BAL, SEA, NYJ beating us every year.

Makes me wonder if SP's guys do more "thinking" than playing all game.

That last line is very telling...

I believe that is the problem on defense...

Instead of coming of with a check list of...

...if they're in this formation and my assignment does this then I...

(a) move to this position, then...

(b) check the secondary assignment for alternate read, then...

(c) allow my help to adjust, then...

(d) recollect tendencies of what that player does in this formation, then...

(e) review primary assignment for a change, then...

Snap, Whoosh, Wait, the guy just ran by me with the ball...Crap...I'm gonna here it on Black and Gold Monday Morning...

What happened to watching film, after film, after film, until you know what flavor of gum the guy would choose and it's instinctual reaction and anticipation of what the opposition will do?!?

Re: Are We Tough Enough?!?

How 'bout "physical enough"? Tough Enough was a cheesy Dennis Quaid film in the '80s ... you wouldn't think someone would know an uninteresting, unimportant tidbit/funfact like that, but when you unsubscribe from cable and go full "rabbit ears", you get to see all kinds of cinematic flops that you wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity to enjoy, .
