Re: Do you agree?????
Bettis wore those same elbow protectors and never had a problem so I'm not sure what the problem was last night. The Bengals definetely go after the ball with FWP without a doubt and you can expect the Pats to do the same.
IMO it was just a matter of Willie trying to do to much in bad conditions. Too much twisting and turning for extra yardage after the initial hit, not good conditions for that. I expect Willie to bounce back from that, but I think Russell should have come in earlier and much more often after the first two that were reversed.
It seemed both QBs were having a problem with the balls being slick as well. It was hard to watch especially after not putting not one on the ground in that slop against Miami.
