Any update on Ross
#61
Just thinking out loud, but do you think the Bengals were trying to pimp up Lafell to be traded to a decimated team like the Giants? Doesn't make a lot of sense, as their season is all but over.

I just feel with Ross being on the field on the occasional 3rd and 8 is better than what we have now regardless of blocking. His speed in and of it self will cause corners to back off opening up a screen for Mixon or Gio.

Kind of makes me think that--even though i'm not Marv fan by any stretch--when he said halftime adjustments are a media creation, that he means (sarcastically) waiting till halftime then making some groundbreaking adjustment is the made up part, since Lazor talked about how they adjust throughout the game. 

Just food for thought. 

Makes sense and I think you're right about Marv's meaning behind that comment.

That said, I've seen way too many games where there was drastic change after halftime to believe that teams don't make big changes at half.

Maybe that's not a weekly thing, but sometimes they see something, make adjustments and come out looking like a completely different team.

I get that, but just as a counter; as much as you see it and it's credited (halftime adjustment to win a game) it would seem to me that practicing all week only to completely change course would be more of a detriment than a help. 

I don't doubt that a minor change would help, but i would think, better execution would be a better place to lay the credit. 

After all, when you hear about an adjustment that was made, how many times do you hear it from a bad/losing team? It's usually more from a good team that is able to change things up a bit and execute better.

Ross is probably still hurt like half his time in college.  the little ive seen from him im definitely not impressed.   i know he ran a 4.2 but he doesnt look it like Hill displays it.

These players need to get enough snaps so that when/if they are really needed later in the season, they will have some awareness and not be deer-in-the-headlights..

This makes a lot of sense. Lazor and Marvin, read Bengalfan4life's post and do something!

I think you're making the mistake that the Bengals are like the Patriots, who change up their game plan for teams, lol. The Bengals are one type of team and they aren't able to morph, and that's why it looks like they don't make half time adjustments, because they can't.

Well as a counter to your counter  Cool ; If what you're doing clearly isn't working, I'd say staying the course would be more of a detriment than switching things up. 

If you game plan for something and the opponent isn't showing what you thought they would, shouldn't you react?

Rather than stick with something that's not working just because you practiced on it?

A sudden 180 in "execution" seems less likely a reason for these drastic halftime turnarounds than "the coaches saw something and made a change or threw in a wrinkle". Just to make it clear, are you saying you think teams adjusting or making changes is a myth? That's how it read to me.

I'm not making the mistake. I'm just spitballing on adjustments in general and Marv's take on the subject specifically.

1. Yup yup.

2. Mos' def

3. I don't think i expressed it properly. I don't think it's a myth at all--whether in-game or halftime--i think there's a combination of doing something different and executing better. I just lean towards better execution when you put them on the scale. Going back to my previous point, when you hear about a halftime adjustment that made the difference, it's usually done by a team that's good more often than not. Of course, you could say a team is that way because they adjust better than their opponents. Ninja

Did you mean strained? 

And the support you give this guy after just 5 weeks is amazing.  I hope you and every other individual crapping on this guy eats a ton of crow when he starts doing what he is capable of and what he was brought here to do.

You got me. I'm not trying to crap all over him I just have a feeling he won't be back for a while since we know how injuries and bengals players mix so well together. I've been rooting him on since draft day but I'm hoping he doesn't have some lingering injury that keeps him out for 6 months
