Thoughts from Bengals pre season against the Jets

Starters- 1st quarter
  • Wasn't expecting Vick to start over Geno.
  • Ryan Hewitt starting at FB for Hue in the power I. it's a different look especially with a rookie. They had Jon Conner in camp this time last season and let him go. Never liked that decision.
  • Mental miscues all around…. It's certainly the pre season. Need to fix these now.
  • Sanu gets a false start. Corrects it with a 41 yrd TD catch. Love it!
  • Slipped my mind, Geno is #7, not Vick. He's #1 with the Jets. At least with the jersey.
  • Quick scare on Burfict with right shoulder. Just a stinger. And Exhale.
  • This offense is very impressive going deep. Green and Sanu are handfuls. Throw a healthy Marvin Jones into the mix. LOOK OUT! OVER THE TOP!
  • The extended distance on the extra point is tad bit weird.
  • End of 1st quarter. Two TD's, only 3 points given up and an interception. Things are looking good!

2nd Quarter
  • Surprised to see Andy and AJ come back out to start 2nd quarter.
  • Not a fan of the read option in the NFL.
  • Nugent from 42, I ask, be consistent!
  • Scored on first 3 offensive possessions, this is what you call "good"
  • A little antsy, I want to see Vick. But we are seeing Chris Johnson now.
  • 1st team offense for the Jets, scores on the 2nd team defense of the Bengals.
  • Referee Ed Hochuli having a tough time tonight. Many miscues and mistakes for the notorious referee.
  • Jeremy Hill sighting at the end of the 2nd quarter with a 5 yard gainer.

Halftime 17-16 Bengals

3rd Quarter
  • Scott still out at QB against 2nd team defense.
  • Vick has been struggling as 2nd team QB.
  • Looking at the Jets depth chart you see virtually the same QB with different ages and different numbers, but all three very similar. Geno Smith, Mike Vick, and Tahj Boyd.
  • Nothing to report on the Bengals in the 3rd quarter, this can be a good thing as they maintain the lead.

4th Quarter
  • Last season Jason Dimanche looked impressive in camp but was injured at the end of preseason. He's playing now and shows impressive closing speed in pursuit.
  • One point to mention but the 2nd and 3rd team guys, they're tackling is very sub par. Leading to a Jets score.
  • Special team can be easy to forget, but it plays a crucial role.
  • Wilson, the new signing at QB a tad bit more impressive than Scott.

#ListenerFridays Player Safety gone too far #MLB







During last night's game between the Reds and Marlins there was a bit of controversy on a play at the plate and the ruling. Judge for yourself here.

Rule 7:13- Unless the catcher is in possession of the ball, the catcher cannot block the pathway of the runner as he is attempting to score. If, in the judgment of the Umpire, the catcher, without possession of the ball, blocks the pathway of the runner, the Umpire shall call or signal the runner safe.
Rule 7.13 states: "Unless the catcher is in possession of the ball, the catcher cannot block the pathway of the runner as he is attempting to score. If, in the judgment of the Umpire, the catcher, without possession of the ball, blocks the pathway of the runner, the Umpire shall call or signal the runner safe."

This rule cost the Marlins a win all because of player safety. Is this right? I don't think so.

And that's just what happened. Cozart didn't even touch the plate and was initially ruled out, but after review lasting 6 minutes and 10 seconds — the longest of the season — the umpires overturned the call. The Marlins had been up 1-0, but three Cincinnati runs after the call led to a 3-1 defeat. Miami manager Mike Redmond — a former catcher himself — was clearly furious over the call, and expressed his frustration after the game. Even Red manager Bryan Price admitted to problems with the rule. But if there's any takeaway from this situation, it did cause the MLB to look further into the Rule 7.13.
