The defense has been hit particularly Antworten

CINCINNATI (AP) — Hue Jackson was talking to reporters outside Paul Brown Stadium when quarterback Andy Dalton yelled at him that practice was about to begin.Just like old times.The former Bengals offensive coordinator is back in town Parris Campbell Jersey , though this time dabbling in the other side of the playbook — well, mostly. How that part plays out is an interesting subplot as the Bengals (5-4) make one final push to save their at-risk season.An unusual coaching arrangement for desperate times.“It’s a unique situation for a lot of us,” linebacker Preston Brown said.A 51-14 loss to the Saints — the third straight game in which Cincinnati has given up 500 yards — set things in motion. Head coach Marvin Lewis fired defensive coordinator Teryl Austin on Monday and installed himself in the dual role of coach and coordinator.He also called his unemployed close friend to see if he was interested in returning for a third stint in Cincinnati as a special assistant on defense. Jackson was fired by the Browns two weeks earlier after winning three games in three seasons.Jackson was hoping the Bengals would reach out to him.“This is a tremendous opportunity for me, and I’m just thankful that they said, ‘You come on home,'” Jackson said.So, now what?Lewis built his coaching reputation as a defensive coordinator, directing the Ravens defense that won the Super Bowl in the 2000 season. He’s decided to go back to his roots as a coordinator while also functioning as head coach — a challenge that few would undertake.“There’s a lot,” Lewis said Wednesday.He spent Tuesday night at home scripting defensive plays. He then led the team meeting on Wednesday morning and presided over the defensive meeting, simplifying things and pulling out a few plays from his past.“He had a different PowerPoint,” Brown said. “He had a really small font, so it was kind of hard to take notes. But it was cool having him up there. You can tell he was having fun.“We did a lot of things — old plays he was calling in 2015, ’14 Bobby Okereke Jersey , stuff I haven’t seen yet. So he was bringing back some plays.”Lewis isn’t sure how it will play out Sunday in Baltimore (4-5), a game the Bengals need to win to stay in the AFC North race. Jackson is providing input for the defensive game plan and will be on the sideline helping Lewis manage the defense, though their game-day roles haven’t been defined.One thing is clear: Jackson won’t be dabbling in the offense. Not for now, anyway.Asked if Jackson would do anything with the offense, Lewis said emphatically, “No. Separate from the offense.”Jackson was the Bengals’ offensive coordinator when Dalton had his best season in 2015. He left to take Cleveland’s head coaching job after the season. His return could create an awkward dynamic on the coaching staff.Jackson said that offensive coordinator Bill Lazor came to his office at Paul Brown Stadium to greet him. Jackson said he’d be glad to offer an opinion if Lazor asks, but he’s going to be careful not to trespass on other coaches’ areas.He knows that adding a newcomer midseason can work both ways.“It can be impactful, but it can also hurt, too,” Jackson said. “And I get that. I just have to play my role, to the best of my ability. I don’t want to do anything to upset anything that they have going on here. But at the same time if I can help, I do want to help.”A DOZEN INJUREDSeven players were held out of practice because of injuries Wednesday and five more were limited. The defense has been hit particularly hard.LB Preston Brown (knee), CB Dre Kirkpatrick (concussion) Khari Willis Jersey , LB Nick Vigil (knee) and DT Adolphus Washington (knee) didn’t practice. LB Vontaze Burfict (hip), CB Darqueze Dennard (shoulder) and LB Vincent Rey (groin) were limited.WR A.J. Green is out indefinitely with an injured toe. WR John Ross was limited because of a groin injury.STADIUM UPDATEThe Bengals and Hamilton Country agreed in principle Wednesday on a plan to add parking and a music venue outside Paul Brown Stadium, and to repair and upgrade the 19-year-old stadium. The Bengals retain the right to build a cover over one of their adjacent practice fields, though they would have to pay for it. The team said there are no immediate plans to cover a field. The Bengals use the University of Cincinnati’s covered field on wintry days. ATLANTA (AP) — Don Crisman knows precisely when the streak began: Jan. 15, 1967. The ticket price for the Super Bowl at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum was $12.“Good seats,” Crisman, 82, said. “You could buy $6 tickets, and $10. There were three prices.”On Sunday, Crisman, Gregory Eaton and Tom Henschel will attend Super Bowl 53 . They’re the last surviving members of the Never Miss a Super Bowl Club, the only known fans with a perfect attendance record for the NFL’s biggest game.“I’ve missed weddings, I’ve missed funerals Josh Allen Jersey , but I’ve never missed a Super Bowl,” said Eaton, 79, from Lansing, Michigan. “Anyone in my family knows don’t plan anything because I’m gone that week.”Ticket prices have soared through the years. Eaton said he paid $2,000 for his ticket to Sunday’s Rams-Patriots game. The most he paid was $3,000 for Super Bowl 48 in East Rutherford, New Jersey, in 2014.Now, as the Rams prepare to face Tom Brady and the Patriots on Sunday, preserving the streak is more important than the cost. And it has not been a smooth ride the whole way.Henschel, 78, a Steelers fan who lives near Pittsburgh Jawaan Taylor Jersey , had his near-miss in New Orleans for Super Bowl 6 in 1972.“I partied a lot on Bourbon Street and woke up at 5 or 6 in the morning and couldn’t breathe,” Henschel said. “I was on all fours. I finally got outside on the street and a police officer took me to a hospital. The next thing I know I’m in the ER with an IV in me and oxygen.“They rolled me into a room and I’m feeling good and a nun came in and said ‘You’re going to be under observation the next 24 hours.’ I said ‘Sister, you don’t understand, I’ve got to go to this game.’ She said ‘No, you’ll be able to see the game on TV.’ Right after she walked out, I took my IV out and oxygen off and I left. They’ve never seen me since.”Crisman almost missed Super Bowl 2 in Miami when a storm forced his private plane to land at an abandoned Air Force base in South Carolina. He finally had a take a 24-hour train ride before arriving in Miami only a couple hours before the Packers-Raiders game.“My streak almost ended before it began,” he said.Crisman distributed Super Bowl 53 club shirts to Henschel and Eaton when they met at a luncheon in downtown Atlanta on Friday. It’s a unique club for the three who become mini-celebrities once a year.Crisman, a Patriots fan from Kennebunk, Maine, offered a toast to former members who have died, including Larry Jacobson six months ago.Crisman said Jacobson was a “one of a kind” fan who also had streaks of attending 54 consecutive Rose Bowls and 15 Summer Olympics.As a Patriots fan, Crisman has had much to cheer about in recent Super Bowls. He said New England’s comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons two years ago is his favorite Super Bowl memory.“I had that one in the loss column at halftime,” he said.Crisman is hoping his Patriots Josh Oliver Jersey , who lost to Philadelphia in last year’s Super Bowl , can win their sixth title. For now, Henschel’s Steelers have the record with six.The smack talk between Crisman and Henschel adds spice to the club’s dynamics.“I’m going for the Rams big-time,” Henschel said. “Big-time!”Henschel is armed with his Steelers’ Super Bowl record for anyone who would question why he’d wear a Pittsburgh jacket to a function before the Rams-Patriots game.“What, do we need to give you a history lesson?” Henschel said before adding with a smile, “That always gets them.”Meanwhile, Eaton’s Detroit Lions have never made it to a Super Bowl. Year after year, he keeps his streak intact.“I take one year at a time,” Eaton said. “If my health keeps going, I’d at least like four or five more.”
