Flux, I didn't go; one of the first home games I haven't attended in a while. Now it makes me wonder if I should be superstitious and not go to the next home game. I had a few opportunities, but decided to see the game on television. I figured it would represent its own experience watching the Bengals on television on Monday night football. The crowd seemed to represent well. At times, I regretted not being there, but I thoroughly enjoyed seeing it in the fashion that I watched it in. I loved the way we blitzed on defense. We blitzed like I had envisioned this defense to blitz since Marvin hired Leslie Frazier and announced his philosophy on defense. It left our DB's with the responsibility to do their job and prevent the big play. With that strategy, we forced Plummer to get rid of the ball earlier than he expected, and it resulted in a few int's. I think, with that strategy, we have DB's that can take advantage of such opportunities. We may get burned occasionally, but we should also render more turnovers and big plays on defense. Most of it depends on how effective our pass rush is. For some reason, Justin Smith has been getting in the backfield more often since his DUI. Even when he doesn't get the sack, he seems to be getting more constant pressure in the backfield. Ok, I've rambled enough...This week is a very winnable game. We need to build on the momentum that we created Monday night. Though Tony Williams is out (via cheap shot), I'm excited to see (in Marvin's words) our nugget: Mathais Askew. He will be subbing with Langston Moore, but if he plays up to his potential, he could be the big DT that we've been waiting for as Cincy fans.
