Mixed feelings about this one. Weddle was game savvy and a good leader on defense. But his skills were definitely down. All-in-all, sorry to see him go but it had to be done.

 

Now the question is 'Who takes his place?'

Roman knows, in order to stay ahead of the curve, he’ll have to reinvent his attack – at least to some degree. It’s always a cat and mouse game in the NFL. One team debuts something new and innovative (Jackson’s speed), opponents adjust, and then teams adjust to the adjustments.

I would go with the rookie last yr.  HE played well in his start.  Also the other rookie who was on IR can be looked at and the draft.

Jefferson should leave too.  He was worse than Weddle.

Whoever it is needs to be able to pass a litmus test: show them a picture of the Bengals wr corps and tell them to locate #18

They could lose 1/3rd to 1/2 of last years defense.

Mosley, Weddle, Zadarius Smith, Suggs...maybe Jimmy Smith...Urben.

That's a lot of leadership and experience there.

The D won't be as good as last years. Decosta is walking a fine line here if the 2019 D starts giving up big plays and points.

“My philosophy is winning comes first,” Roman said. “I’m not chasing stats. Job justification stats, water cooler talk – I’m not really into that. I’m into whatever helps the team to win. Along with that, though, a physical style. Meaning we’re in control. It starts up front, but it extends everywhere. It’s a mindset. [I’m] very big on approaching the game from that perspective.”

Maybe 2019 is not the goal.  They are looking at the long term and doing a soft rebuild.
