After a 37-34 overtime win over the New Orleans Saints, head coach admitted that going after quarterback Drew Brees would not be easy given his quick foot speed and even quicker release but against the Bengals, pressure was a must. It just didn’t happen.
“We’ve got to put more pressure on the quarterback,” Head Coach Mike Smith said. “It’s not where we want to be after the first two games. And I think it has translated into us not playing the type of defense that we want. We haven’t been able to pressure the quarterback, nor have we been able to stop the run. And those are two issues that we definitely have to address and get better at.”
They didn’t “stop the run” to the tune of 90 yards and gave up nearly 500 in the 24-10 loss but they have the chance to right the ship as they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday. Plenty of great seats and cheap tickets still remain…Get yours today!
