Nov 10, 2013; Baltimore, MD, USA; Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green (18) is congratulated by wide receiver Mohamed Sanu (12) after catching a 51 yard touchdown pass as time expired against the Baltimore Ravens at M

Mohamed Sanu

Speaking of inconsistent, Sanu has had some really solid games and then he turns in a back to back games filled with drops and critical penalties.

Pass Protection

While not all 5 sacks were the fault of the line, Dalton was under way too much pressure on Sunday and in critical situations – 4th and 1 on 1st drive and 3rd and 2 in OT – the line let the team down.

The Lack of a Fullback

The Bengals have struggled on 3rd and 4th and shorts and I have to think some of that is a result of not having a FB. Orson Charles is not a FB…even the Bengals coaches realize that. Have you ever noticed that in the few situations where the Bengals use a FB, the only guy they NEVER put at FB is their “FB?” When they need a FB, they put in Peko, or Smith, or Eifert, or anyone with a Bengals jersey not named Charles.
