'We’d have scored quicker' if Rex Ryan brought those garbage blitzes against our 1st team: Bengals O line coach Paul Alexander

Bengals offensive line coach Paul Alexander wasn't happy with Rex Ryan's 'garbage' blitz tactics in this past weekend's preseason game.

“Notice he didn’t bring that stuff when our starters were out there,” Alexander said, via Cincinnati.com. “We’d have scored quicker. If he wants to put his starting defense out there and blitz all that garbage against our third-stringers, if he feels good about it, then all the power to him.”

“They don’t want to create that one-on-one matchup (with Green),” backup QB Jason Campbell said. “The one blitz they did bring (against the first-stringers) Andy caught A.J. in the slot and got 21 yards, and you didn’t see it again.”

“Some of it was a little extreme,” said Campbell. “I remember back in the day, preseason games you didn’t see any blitzes. Everyone was so vanilla all the way to the regular season. Now it’s a different day and age and teams really just throw it all out there.”

The Jets amassed six personal foul penalties in the game to boot. And look like they're going to be awful. How awful? You'll probably hear more commercials hawking tickets than you'll see more Ice Bucket Challenges over the next 3 weeks.
