Interesting day in the division yesterday.
No one is talking about Cinci and everyone assumes they are going to suck but for them to almost win in Seattle yesterday, without Green, was one of the more impressive performances of the day. They have some good pass rushers. Ross finally looked like a top 10 pick yesterday (although its just one game, so we need to see more), Mixon is really good and they will get Green back. Plus, Dalton is a capable guy. They gave up 5 sacks and that line isn't going to be good but maybe Cinci will be a better team than people have given them credit for.
Pitt looked terrible. All the talk about how good JuJu is, how much of that was because of Brown? How much of a drop off exists from Bell, Brown and JuJu to Conner, JuJu and Moncreif/Washington and will that drop off make them easier to defend? People believe their defense will be better. Its young and fast but the secondary still blows. Haden isn't close to what he was and he's their best guy back there.
Cleveland should rebound ok and they are talented but can a collection of talent mold together and become a good team? And is Kitchens the right guy for them? Tough to say but they have a difficult opening schedule and if things go downhill early, what will that do to that locker room?
