Yeah this was my thought as well. I still can't get used to seeing the D play the cover 2....and I am not a big fan of it. I know we haven't seen much of it, but it seems to be a bit of a waste of Troy's talent. Hopefully he just needs some time to find his role in this style of defense.
Oh well....we got an important win today. Always good to 'beat dem bengals'
