-GoBengals- Posted August 7, 2022 Report Share Posted August 7, 2022 I argue with my kid all the time about Carman, he is pretty unforgiving of Carmans arrival and performance being a bit pathetic. It was. but i dont think that has hardly anything to do with 2022 season. I feel lots of fans are the same way. Most everyone is acting like he sucks and don't want him in there. Carman came in fat, thats his fault, seemingly didn't get much work in with the weird covid offseason, his fault. Then he got put on the right side, and the mishaps of the first year of his career piled on from there. He was at a new position. He was at a new side of the football. He was overweight and out of shape. He didnt seem to understand that being a physical freak wasnt going to be enough at the NFL level. He was injured slightly, perhaps due to lack of conditioning? im not sure. He had a musical chairs of people around him. We can all agree he played like shit last year, I feel like the list of reasons why(above) is a fair assessment of why that happened. I get they are mostly his fault, but it still happened. He seems to have learned from that very quickly, and Pollack praise which he isnt often giving out, says quite a bit for his offseason commitment. So his talent level in college, his raw ability, and his new focus and health, all seem to be reasons for optimism. I kind of expect him, sandwiched between two solid veterans, to play very well, and I expect to run behind him quite a bit i think. Is there any logical reason to assume he isnt going to perform well going into this year? am i missing something? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
