To support our guys. Trent was without a doubt the best player on the field. If you saw the game you know how he ran the ball. He did a great job in pass protection, and stoned a few cincy linebackers on blitzes. Weeden has to check down to him more because he was wide open in the flats a lot. Also, he is being a leader out there, talking up him teammates, pumping up his o line. That will be his team, and you could tell he has their respect already. There was a buzz about his strength with the people around me. He was impressive. Also there were a lot of Cleveland fans wearing 33 jerseys. They are pumped about him.
Big Andre looked really good for the bengals. He's back to being a dominating run blocker and has really improved in the passing game. There were times i thought he was going to get beat on the edge, but he moved his feet well and held protection. He looked like the talent we knew he was.He is moving well and had a really nice game. He's poised to be an anchor on that line. He was also a captain for the game.
That's all I got. Just thought I'd share.
Sounds great for our guys - thanks for the report.
Nice work with the update+1. Do you live in the area, or make the trip?
I live in Cincinnati, have for the past 6 years. I was excited to go see Trent play. My dad came up from Bama and we went and sported our Bama gear.

Did you hear any, "Roll Tide" ?
Dre K playing yet?
I did get some roll tides! I also had a bengals fan bump me in the arm and say "f@ck Alabama, yeah f@ck them and f@ck you!". Now 5 years ago, I would have gave him a good old southern butt whooping right there, but I guys having a little boy now I have mellowed out ( and if he would have said that to my dad I would have gone all Bama on him). I just looked at him and smiled real big. Then he said "go blue!" At that point it all made sense, and I just started laughing and said "oh your are a Michigan fan, no wonder you are so bitter". He just walked off.
I did not see him get in the game today. I think he is still hurt.
Thanks for the post, OP!
If Weeden learns to fully utilize him, he could be the next Marshall Faulk - and without a Kurt Warner.
THanks for the report. You're right that TRich was wide open in multiple screen situations. The more they capitalize on that, the more DB's will come closer to the line and the more opp's for the WR down the field. If they can get some stud WR's and stud D players, that'll be a good team. Jury's out on Weeden, but he had a good game today.
