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.

Miss St 45 UK 31 #BBN


Strong showing against #1 Miss St, brings the Cats some respect. What is notable from this defeat is the attention Patrick Towles will recieve after out dueling a Hesiman hopeful.

Henry Clay 70 Bryan Station 63


No shortage of offense in this one! Bryan Station put up the points, but it was a late surge by Henry Clay making the difference giving us a classic at Dr. Robert J. Bell Heber Stadium.
