Morning stripes: Zimmer on Bengals D

By Coley Harvey

We're finally at the end of another work week. Yes, it's time to take a couple of days off. You deserve it.

All week, we have been discussing the factors that could lead Cincinnati back over the hump and even its tally at 1-1 after last week's season-opening loss at Chicago. Some of the position groups we haven't spent much time discussing this week, though, are on defense. It's been mostly an offense-minded week so far. Some of you might say that's a good thing considering the way the well-paid defensive line couldn't get enough pressure on Bears quarterback Jay Cutler last week to bring him down for even one sack.

Well, like it or not, today is Defense Day and we'll be taking a look at that unit throughout the day.

Let's start off the festivities with our first morning stripes link:
Enjoy the start to your weekend, folks. We'll be here throughout it, and will help you close it out Monday night, too.
