We agree, it is time to step up.
Bengals fans have been saying it, the media has been saying it. Now Marvin Lewis said it:
“We’re looking for our quarterback and our middle linebacker to take hold of our football team and that’s important for us.”
Amen Marvin. Maualuga has been a disappointment this season. He seems to be slow and often out of position. In a contract year that is not what you expect from a guy and he is being outplayed by an undrafted rookie next to him.
As for Dalton…
“We’re looking for Andy to take the next step of being the leader of this football team.”
“Grab this football team by the back of its neck and let’s go, let’s move forward.”
100%. At times Dalton has shown no fire and no heart. Other times terrible decisions have put this team in a hole they couldn’t climb out of. The pick 6 has been in far too many games and Dalton can not allow that to happen. If receivers are in the wrong spot then he needs to get on them. don’t lock onto the first read and just play heads up football.
“We’ve wallowed around here in mediocrity.”
Below mediocrity right now in fact. Lets hope this fire gets the Bengals on the right track.
