"Metals Line on the first Star Logistics Bengals radio Network in 700, WLW Lions McAllister, Dave Lap a man We were having fun sorting through victory yesterday. 27 24 The final We heard from Logan Wilson in the last segment. Let's kind of pick things up where we left off with Logan, Wilson and Day by, Um He's one of those guys and I know it's cliche that that old football cliche and nose for the football but man, there is so much to like about him, and it's cleared the organization and the coaches like him enough. They moved on from Josh Bynes and just more opportunities for him, and, um he's rewarding the faith they've shown in him. He's taken on all challenges and answering him. He's got the green dot on the helmet. That means he's wearing the community. Location device. He's he's talking to the coaches on the sideline. He's making the calls, and he's very intelligent. He's a really, really good football player. He's got, uh, real good football like you when he was in high school. He was basically Jim Thorpe heated everything. I mean, he played defensive back. He played quarterback He played running back. He was the punter is the place kicker. I think he sold popcorn and peanuts. I mean, he did everything. And then, as he got more mature, goes to Wyoming and gets more Children and he starts to grow and training table and working out with strength and conditioning, Coaches linebacker but His experiences on the back end initially. Told him a lot about leverages and coverages and route concepts and all that. So as a linebacker. This guy is really good in the passing game because he has that big picture from on the back end, and now he's upper level and he's big enough and strong enough to come downhill and make plays. In and I really think he's got a really bright future. I think he's a hell of football player. I think he's a playmaker, and I think he's going to make a lot of this season. He had seven tackles on the day. Um Bates led the team with nine tackles. Pratt had eight debates, and Pratt had six unassisted tackles. Pratt, though statutes stuff or tackle philosophy, quarterback hit forced fumble fumble recovery, one of the biggest players in the game. Wilson had seven tackles. Bell had seven tackles and then four others had six. Apple Ogunjobi Rougier Hilton. Allen had five. You have that many four different people with sticks, tackles in a bunch of guys from 6 to 9 tackles. You're talking eight players. That's that's not lying on one guy. That's everybody doing their job and making plays when the opportunity presented itself in their area of the football field, you know, I'm pretty. You read off all he did to stuff the stat sheet that was on 37 defensive snaps. He also had 17 on special teams. But the thing with print we've talked about this before. It's good to hear all those numbers he stuffed into the statute because there have been times in the past that Germaine Pratt just seemed like he was out there. It was just playing a snap, and there was nothing to it. Beyond that. Those stats say there was a lot more to it yesterday. I think he's I think that's a great point. Lance, I think he's playing with so much more confidence. And he's got swag Now he didn't have swag. I mean, look, I guess a good word to describe him was tentative, You know, And you don't want to be that way on a football field, And when you look at him, his size speed ratio is off the charts. I mean, the dudes are freak. He's one of those athletic freak so I think that when you look at Wilson and Pratt the size of those guys the way they can run in the nickel package, those two guys that's as good a duo Nickel linebacker as you can really ask for, and they're two and three year players. I mean, they're in the infancy of their NFL careers. But there were some workhorses yesterday and the day it was hot. I'm looking at the game book 83 defensive snaps easier in on all 83 bell in on all 83 Apple took 82 snaps. Bates took 82 snaps. That's got to be a grind on a day that goes over time, the heat all opener of the season. That's asking a lot of those guys deliver. They delivered big time. And when you look at it, uh, cousins what did he end up throwing on the on the day? I mean his final stats. On the day that the 49 times 36 or 49 almost threw it 50 times. That's a lot of routes you running after. I mean, that's like, you know, it's not like a team that, uh, it's not like the Baltimore Ravens running it, you know 45 times and only thrown at 20. It's the other way around. I mean, you know they're throwing it thrown at a heck of a lot more than they're running the football and that's that's a lot of work. That's a lot of, uh, you know, deep routes, at least at least one person in most places running a deep routes. So one of those guys who took all those snaps That's he's picking them up and putting them down Boy that tongue could have been dragging on that hot turf. It was. It was clearly a challenging day for Eli Apple had a really tough one stretch of possession of a sequence of plays. Um, look into your crystal ball on trade wanes and what his return looks like, potentially. And I've always been. I think we both loved areas. Phillips. There is an element of a 50 50 with Gerry Phillips. You know, either be exciting or make you pull your hair out. But it when Apple struggles does that open in any way. Darius Phillips opportunities between now and when Trey Wayne's comes back. Yeah. You wonder the thing about Darius Phillips is the inconsistency. You know he can he can, you know? Yeah. Yeah, Like, what the hell you doing, You know, and it's It's that way. And that's just Liu and Ramos starts pulling his hair out by the roots. So He? He's that kind of player. But you know you would hope Trae Waynes. They decided not to put on an injury reserve injure reserve. Now the new protocols is only three weeks. Your you can be recalled after three games, so the fact that they decided to carry him and deactivate him to me. Was okay. Well, we might get him back for the second game. Uh, you know cheese. Well, if we don't get should get him back for the third, because if we didn't put him on IR and give them back to the fourth, so you're hoping but one thing that I've learned over the years the one thing that you cannot predict his hamstrings. I mean, a lot of times like, I don't think it's significant, you know, it's uh, it's kind of, you know in the belly, but it's not. It's not a pie. It's not toward the buttocks. This one shouldn't be bad. It's down by the kneecap. It's really low and they just turned out to be different. It's almost like every knee injury is different. Every surgery different rehabs different every every hamstring pulls different, too, because Nobody has made up the exact same way. There's no question about it Hang tight. We're heading down the stretch. One more segment to go. We've saved that for a look at those Chicago Bears lap. Um I'm Lance McAllister. It's Bengals line in the first Star Logistics Bengals radio network in 700 WLW. You focus on your day to day life and try health will be focused on your day to day health..

"Zac's answer was and you can understand him taking this approach wanted. Unlike making predictions, he said. We certainly have to get a lot better in a lot of areas in Windsor number one. I'm really excited about this off season in the work we're going to put in to make sure our team improves and put all these pieces together. To have a great year. That's our expectation. We had those expectations this year and we had opportunities, so it's on us to make sure we make the most of those opportunities this year. What has to happen in 2021 to view the season as its success? Well, in no particular order? Well, I'll start with the most important job. Burroughs got to be healthy. And then Joe Burrows. Gotta be kept healthy. He's gonna be kept standing up, clean protected, protect the investment. They're gonna have to figure out a way to pressure the quarterback get pressure on the quarterback in some way, shape or form they're going to have to if I can backtrack one. If they're going to do that, with Joe, That's obviously going to be what everybody is viewing the most important factor in the offseason addressing the offensive line in the draft in free agency, perhaps both they're gonna have to take some swings and they can't be swings and misses and free agency. They have to be swings and they have to be extra base hits in free agency. I'm not so sure it doesn't have to. The first one doesn't have to be a home run in free agency, and they're gonna have to take some swings and deliver extra base hits in the draft again. His team won two games two years ago. Four games this year in answering the question what has to happen in 2021? For exact view? The season is a success. If all of those air done all of those must be done, and then success will be a winning season as the first step beyond that, If it's nine or 10 wins, the rest is out of your control in terms of Whether you're gonna make the playoffs or not, But there's a lot of interesting questions inside of all of that, and I hit on someone with J, including William Jackson, third or Carl Lawson. Everybody wants the Bangles to go big and go bold and free agency and they did a year ago for $150 million in free agency, and the results were mixed bag, but they've got to. They've got to figure out how they're going to approach. William Jackson, the third and Carl Lawson. It is a passing league. If it's a passing league to defend that you're gonna have to get pressure on the quarterback and be able to cover and the less pressure on the quarterback. The longer you have to cover. Good luck. If they can't figure out a way. Keep Carl Lawson, you are down to Sam Hubbard. Yikes on a team that already had trouble getting to the quarterback. If you can't keep William Jackson the third you've got Trae Waynes, who? A year ago, They invested three years $42 million in. Unfortunately, he never took a snap because he toward the pectoral pectoral muscle. But you've also got a Darius Phillips and a couple other lesser options. But if it's what are the other and I don't know, Maybe it's Maybe it's one gets signed an extension one gets tagged. I don't know how likely that is because the tag is such a big number with what they're gonna have to get done this offseason, But if you make it one of the other Want Carl Lawson over William Jackson, the third I'll take the guy who can be disruptive. Now. You could argue that Carl Lawson, the switch has to stay flipped and on more often, there will be burst and flashes. And there will be moments where you think he looks so good. You think they'll never be able to afford him in free agency. The guy's a monster. And then there's stretches. Where you say, Where did Carl Lawson go? And yet he's still young. What 25 years old Andre Asses? Muchas it is a cover league. William Jackson the third to me. In his first year you were like, Oh, yeah, Man, The graph the church for this guy. This guy's got a trend up and up it up and just get better. And there were moments in the past couple of years where William Jackson just if he wasn't hurt. He was just kind of He was just there. And you can't just be there you get you gotta make plays. I mean, he's a reputation in Houston was he got his hands on the ball. He batted out a lot of passes. He picked off a lot of passes. He was a playmaker, and he just he hasn't made Don't think he's made the place that you would have thought a first round corner would have made to this point. So if it's one of the other, it's Carl Lawson. You know what else has to take place in order for this season to be successful? Their best players have to play their best. But I go back to what just happened this past season And if you look simply from a Monetary standpoint, a cap standpoint of what they spent. The chunk of the cap it took up. And what they got in return. The classic return on investment mean AJ Green $18 million What did they get out of a J. Green? I think there were four weeks he did not have a catch during the season. Gino Atkins. Next at 14.2 Million. What do they get out of Gino Atkins? Zip zilch. Nata, limited snaps and one pressure. I think one tackle the entire season. DJ reader got hurt the big offseason investment. He'll be back had the thigh injury, but that was 10 Million. They spent Trae Waynes 10 million counted this year. Bobby Hart, Don't even get me started. Carlos Dunlap. Don't even get me started there. And I mean, that's 1234. Those air six guys those of the six biggest cap hits and what what production did they get combined out of Green Atkins Reader, Wayne's Heart and Dunlap and you can't win in the NFL. If your best players don't perform their best. Release your highest paid players in theory, your best players because you're devoting that kind of money to him. But you had. You know, Sean Williams didn't play much. His cap. It was around five. You know, John Ross around five million. See Jay Oussama got hurt. He was closer to six million. Joe mixing got hurt, and we didn't hear from him. For what? The final how many games of the season and that was about four million on the cap. Jonah Williams got hurt. I don't want to say again, but but he got hurt, So that's a big stack of talent..
