Thread: Week 2 Gameday thread: Bengals at Jets!!

  1. #31
    Just finished the game on delay. Screaming the whole game at what's been creeping in here more and more, particularly this week, that Mixon is the wrong back for this team. He's slow to get to the line, lumbers, but most incredibly his vision has been bad and he's going down on contact by arm tackles around his thigh or waist. Perine comes in and is quick to the line, has decisive vision and legs with drive. Irresepective of scheme, I think it's time to platoon the two backs more and phase out Mixon if Perine continues to show better performance.

    Point of stress: we ran for like 10 straight plays and the Jets knew we were going to run and KNEW we were going to try to stuff it down their throats...and they couldn't' stop us. For the previous 50 minutes of the game, they had no issue stopping Mixon when they had no such obvious situations.

    Bengals DL snaps for the first 2 quarters (prior to Reader injury):


    Hubbard - 34
    Hill - 32
    Hendrickson - 32
    Reader - 18
    Sample - 15
    Ossai - 14
    Tupou - 9
    Carter - 7


    This is more of what I expected.

    Was glad to see Ossai get some more snaps. He sniffed pressure a couple of times. Needs live fire with starters to grow.

    The Bengals get a lifeline. Cincinnati found itself in must-win territory in the Meadowlands Sunday, odd for the defending AFC champion in September. But the chance of making the playoffs after an 0-3 start are slim, so the 27-12 win over the Jets was welcome relief. Maybe more important than the score was Bengals’ sack total allowed: two.

    Hello, Next Gen

    In our partnership with Next Gen Stats, I looked into the punishment QB Joe Burrow has been taking. Even after the respite of sacks taken Sunday, it’s still not good. Per Next Gen, Burrow was pressured 15 times Sunday against the Jets. For the three-game season, he’s been pressured on 32.9 percent of his pass attempts. That’s very likely unsustainable. Remember after the narrow loss to the Rams in the Super Bowl, when the Bengals absolutely, positively said they would take better care of Burrow? In 2021, he was pressured on 28.5 percent of his pass drops, so the fixes haven’t worked.

    Now, two sacks is good. Fifteen pressures on 38 pass drops, not so good. Protection for Burrow, who the Bengals hope is their franchise quarterback for the next 15 years, is most definitely still a work in progress.

    Goodberry is doing a good breakdown on twitter. It seems a big part of it is Collins playing poorly, due to the back issue.

    Speaks volumes IMO that they'd rather send out an injured Collins than play any of the backup OT's.

    He’s also pointed out a few examples of mixon not really finding the holes or trusting his guys to get to the next level (which they have, especially karras and kappa).

    Nixon is running into blockers backs when there are obvious creases/holes he isn't hitting. I don't know if he's trying to hard to break big gains or if he's just not seeing the holes, but it's a major issue. He's nearly last in the league in every RB metric right now, including the ones that are designed to isolate RBs from OL play (like broken tackles).

    Isn’t that the same referee, at least, who called roughing the passer on Justin Smith in Tampa in 2006?
