    Calling me out, huh? I see how it is… *grin*

    As Obama would say, “let me be clear”. I’m not predicting the Redskins to upset the Ravens. (It would be an upset, although I don’t think it would be as big of an upset as most.) If the Ravens win Sunday, they will win the division. But if by chance they don’t, the division could very well be in play because I don’t think they can beat the Broncos.

    I realize that it is easy to fall into the trap of believing that because Sanu had the sudden success that he did, that he is the answer for our perceived need for a true number two. I also know that the club has to list ‘someone’ as their #2 receiver on their depth chart. Sanu does bring something a little different to the game that other receiver options may not, but both Marvin Jones and Andrew Hawkins bring something that Sanu does not. Bengals just need to rely on what these two can bring, and game plan around that. An adjustment, yes, but I do not believe that there is a sense with the Bengals that they have lost a receiver that cannot be replaced. Sanu’s success was very sudden, and his ability to produce would likely have wained just a bit as teams began to find an answer for him anyway. Mixing it up with varying receiver options is really one of the biggest strengths this club has to offer given the style of offense they are trying to get to. As far as the running game goes, perhaps more throws to RB’s is what they need to run. Law Firm has very capable pass-receiving hands, and is even quite effective in catching passes in stride with a linebacker chasing after him. It will not be as easy to reduce the Bengals offense to one-dimensional as it appears – if they do not beat themselves by turning over the ball.
