Being 0-2 is one thing. Being 0-2 without scoring a single touchdown in those two games? That's bad.
"I am shocked. Yes, I am," coach Marvin Lewis said of his offense's performance through the first two weeks of the season so far, via the team's official website. "We should be better."
"It's bad because we have so much talent. We shouldn't be playing this bad," receiver A.J. Green added.
"What's frustrating to me is we're not punching it in," cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said. "Everybody has weapons. They have high paid receivers, cornerbacks. Everybody has players. They just outplayed us tonight."
"Not scoring a touchdown in two games is not good. I don't have the answers, but we have to figure it out," tight end Tyler Eifert said.
Most of the Bengals didn't offer up solutions. Take it one day at a time, focus in -- all the common clichés were spouted around.
Green, however, did have one suggestion.
"As one of the leaders of the offense, I feel like when we're not having a spark, I need the ball in my hands somehow, somewhere, we gotta find a way to get me the ball," Green told reporters. "We're not doing that right now."
And they know that.
