Not saying he has no blame, but putting it all on him overshadows many more problems with this team.
give it to the guy who has a chance of doing a cutback run or bounce to the outside (mendenhall). plug the middle and dwyer/redman are stuffed, play over. mendenhall can make you pay, and actually did make them pay on a few runs.
teams will continue to show the running game no respect unless we have a running back that commands it. say what you will about mendy, but the cincy defense definitely feared him more than dwyer or redman
