I’m at WKRP in Cincinnati!!

Not sure what it takes to get yourself fired in the NFL as these positions seem to be fairly carved in stone, but what is the deal with the special teams coach? I’m sure Richard Hightower is a good guy and is trying his best, but in the past 2 games, the special teams have been responsible for giving up 20 points. Missed field goals are one thing, but giving up a 73 yard fake punt with no one getting a hand on the guy is awful. The week before we gave up a 102 yard KO return for a TD.

Trent Cannon fumbled away a punt twice on the same play. Aiyuk makes fair catches inside the 10 yard line all the time. Him running backwards after catching the ball on the 9 was brilliant, but at least he didn’t fumble.

Hey, let’s try Travis Benjamin as a KO retuner! OK. Fumble on his 1st try. Kickoff coverage was terrible in the Seattle game and we all know what happened in the Minnesota game. Wishnowski has been punting pretty badly these days. Kickoff and punt coverage in general has been spotty.

Not that this is the only problem with the team, but this has been the most obvious. Jimmy G throwing picks is no new thing, and he is the model of inconsistency. Defensively, the same. They forced 3 3-and-outs in a row vs Seattle, but then gave up the ghost. Mainly because Emmanuel Moseley went down with a high ankle sprain. One that will keep him out for the rest of the year. Uh oh.

So, good news folks! We are going against the high-flying Bengals with our shitty backup cornerbacks Josh (call me Magnum PI) Norman, and Dontae (call me sourdough, I’m toast) Johnson. Shouldn’t be a problem.

Mainly because the NFL referees seem to have been given a mandate not to call holding penalties on whoever is facing off against Nick Bosa. Bosa is having a stellar season despite being held on about 80% of his rushes. Meanwhile Laken Tomlinson gets a holding call while doing nothing but standing near a DE. Got to love those Seattle refs.

This may be an ugly one unless we can control the clock by running. Oh yeah, Mitchell is in the concussion protocol. Wilson? Hasty? Hofer?

    The Bengals are a pretty good team and i don’t expect to win this one. Lance has been running the practice teams all year so he must be getting pretty familiar with everything and i would like to see him a little this week. Even with Lance in there we still are probably gonna lose this one. I don’t know Warner’s or Greenlaw’s situation but it would be nice to get them back.

    Cincy has a good run defense so this’ll be a test of how much we can push it. Thing is though, they have lost to the Jets, the Browns, and the Bears to go along with losses to the Packers and Chargers, so they have some choke in them.

    But leaving the game in Jimmy’s hands doesn’t bode well. Nor does our shitty CBs working against their passing attack. Burrow does have 14 interceptions though.

    No clue. This team is the model of inconsistency.

      Let’s turn to Les Nessman for the turkey drop?

        I remember seeing this when it aired, and I was hooked!!! Fucked up thing is, they lost the music rights when they went off the video format. When Ted Nugent’s Queen of the Forest kicked in as the first song off the rock and roll format, I was hooked. Great show!! Unfortunately they had to take out most off the music played on the DVDs.

    I kinda wish they would sprinkle in some Lance just to give different looks to defend against. Not as a runner though.

    Derek St Holmes kills it in this song.

    Good article recapping (recrapping?) the Seattle game. Most of what we have addressed, but a nice pointing out of the shitty game Jimmy had.

    Outside the Lines, when ESPN was more about actual stories than hype and bullshit.

      yeah, that was a truly fucked up situation. Lennon never did nothing to deserve that. Just another asshole with a gun.

    Yeah, his whole reason for bing in New York was he felt pretty much anonymous. No one really bothered him. Most other places he was mobbed wherever he went.
