varaven45 Posted September 24, 2015 Share Posted September 24, 2015 I don't know which team is showing up Sundays vs. Bengals; the one that's underachieved the first two games of the season or one that comes out with a purpose and sense of urgency.If the latter shows up Sunday; these three must happen in order to win: 1. The offense has to immediately pound the rock and consistently throughout the game. The OL has to make a statement and own the LOS; Forsett, Taliefero, and Allen have to run with authority and collectively gain at least 150 yards. This will set the tone for the game, take some pressure off Joe and our evolving WR corps, and preserve our D. 2. The defense need to make a huge statement right out of the gates. The pass rush must overwhelm and suffocate Andy Dalton the entire game and work in tandem with the secondary. The D must have multiple Dalton sacks and create at least 2-3 turnovers. The DL must control the LOS and neutralize the running game, and the secondary cant give up the long play to Green, Sanu or Eifert. 3. Harbaugh has to have these guys ready, jacked up to play relentless, focused and fast ball for 60 minutes. This team will either set the tone, control the dictate m If all three happen, we have a shot of winning and going 1-2. If not, we are 0-3 and 2016 draft talk will begin in earnest.
