Default Rey said what!!!

REY REFLECTS: Defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer looks to be in his corner even though middle linebacker Rey Maualuga is down on himself for his performance Saturday. Maualuga went as far to say Monday that he felt like the playoff game was an audition for the team to pursue him in free agency with his deal is up and now he's not sure if the team wants him back.
"I felt as if the playoff game was sort of like, if I perform well, they would want me. I don’t know if they want me, but I do know I didn’t perform well. If I did well, good results will happen," Maualuga said. "I felt as if those plays cost our defense due to my actions and where I was and how I didn’t execute it. So who knows? I really don’t know if they want me back."
But Zimmer said the Bengals aren’t going to base anything off one game, alluding to his own performance in some games, and said he'd like to get all his guys back in free agency.
Maualuga did clarify some post-game remarks that he felt came out the wrong way and were then misinterpreted about him not giving his all in the first half.
"I might have put it the wrong way. It’s not that I didn’t give it my all in the first half, I felt as if it wasn’t enough," Maualuga said. "Obviously I strap on my helmet and put my shoulder pads on knowing that I am ready, knowing that I am physically prepared to go out there and play a football game. It’s not like I stepped out there and didn’t want to be there.
"My mindset was in the right place. But the outcome of how I wanted to play wasn’t what came out. Those big plays that I gave up, they’re plays that we’ve been running through in practice and I knew that they were coming. But it didn’t play out how I wanted it to play out. That’s what I meant by saying I didn’t give everything I had."
The two plays sticking out in Maualuga's mind were a missed tackle on a draw by Texans running back Arian Foster for 13 yards right after the Bengals went ahead, 7-6, and an 18-yard pass to tight end Owen Daniels on the second series that pulled the Texans out of a hole on their 7 on second-and-eight and led to a field goal.
"I think on the second series with the tight end coming across my face. I think it was a third down or a second, but they were backed up," he said. "I just didn’t execute it. And yeah, that draw. Those plays I gave up, I don’t know if it would’ve changed the outcome, but we definitely would’ve been off the field and given our offense a better chance to make some plays."

He's gone. You can't play mike and not be confident in yourself. No heart or anything. A damn dancing teddy bear

I liked Rey coming out of SC, I liked Rey here until he started playing like crap.

He needs to do himself a favor and catch on with a 3-4 team. He will be a much better fit in that scheme.

Anybody remember that Arian Foster run where he planted his right foot and cut to the left, smoking Rey? 58 never even broke down into tackling position. Pure laziness at the MIKE position. Can't have it. Is 55 the answer at MIKE? Especially having such an incredible season on the outside?

Default Re: Rey said what!!!

This is going to sound ridiculous, but I'm just going to say it anyway because I think it holds merit anyway.

I play in an NFL Madden league and I play the Bengals.

I play a lot of man coverage because Leon Hall, Terrence Newman and Jason Allen are really good at it.

This also puts my linebackers in man coverage too though.

But Rey is always on the FB or maybe the HB. I've never EVER put him on a tight end. That's all on Manny Lawson and Thomas Howard. He just doesn't have the lateral quickness to cover a tight end.

In nickel situations, he'll cover the RB. If there's no running back, he comes out of the game.

This was a personnel issue that made Maualuga look bad. He should be covering the guys who aren't paid to beat man coverage. He is not a man cover linebacker.

Now, that said, I think we can do much better than him in the middle (Burfict preferably). But it wouldn't be the end of the world if we signed him as a back up who could maybe come back if he improves his quickness and coverage skills.

I would be surprised if anyone signs him, to be perfectly honest.

Oh I agree. I think it was horrible design to expect him to cover one of the better TE and RB in open field.

I've said it all along that I'm nervous to move Burfict from the outside when he's playing so good and said that he likes playing on the outside because he has more freedom to move. Was he just saying that so he wouldn't ruffle Rey's feathers? Maybe, and I'm sure that he'd be a beast at MIKE, but I don't know if I want to take his pass coverage skills and his playmaking skills from the outside. Maybe move him to SAM, but I like him on the outside. Then again, maybe he could be the bad-*** MIKE we need to give our defense some swagger.

As far as what he said, his heart's just not in the game anymore and he'll be the Achilles' heel to this team if he stays (unless maybe we move him back to SAM).

Agree with you, Brad. Burfict's ability to get off the blocks and explode towards the ball might be a major benefit to the MIKE position. That being said, his move would leave a huge hole on the outside. Would we all be comfortable with Lamur in that spot? I probably would not. He has shown flashes, but is he a starting backer in this league right now? I doubt it. Bringing back Howard and adding an explosive LB early in the draft seems like it could make for a scary group of guys behind Atkins and crew.

And the way they played Houston, I wouldn't mind seeing a couple more hit the road. No specifics, just still mad.

There's a reason why all the other USC linebackers went in the first round and Maualuga went in the second. He's just too freaking slow. It's as simple as that.

Reys real issue is making hundreds of thousands of dollars and getting the DUI in Pontiac Sun fire if I recall correctly.

From this little blurb, it seems to me like Rey knew if he played well he would be kept here and if he flopped he would be let go without a fight. Essentially, he threw the game. Judging by how poorly he looked on film, and how amazingly unprepared he was; Rey decided he wanted out before that game even began. It thinks thats the shi*tiest thing Ive ever heard of in my time as a Bengals fan. Generally, I hate jumping to conclusions, but you can't deny what you've read and what the game footage shows. I'm disappointed and hurt. I met him at Dave and Busters this past year, and even ate appetizers with him. I thought he was a lot better than this.

This thread skewed way too far off topic following a harshly worded and speculative allegation. There are plenty of legitimate criticisms of Rey Maualuga without devolving into what this thread had become. Please stick to them. Thank you.

Rey is an extremely insecure person with self-esteem and confidence issues.

Seems like a good dude at heart, but those traits are the opposite of what I want to see in our MLB.

unfortunate.

Although the point still stands.

Maualuga has no business covering TEs. and if our coaches knew that and just didn't put him on the TEs, they couldn't exploit it.
