I'm not missing Jackson at all, I still think the MVP should've been awarded to Dwight Smith rather then DJ

Jackson made his impact when the game was still in doubt.

I was under the impression that D Jax went to Cincy for the money, we signed him for 1 year after he had a back injury and gave him a chance to prove to other teams that he could still play.

If we were the number one defense in the league.  No one would be talking about Dexter's departure.  We'd all be calling him a hurt cast off.  But even when he wasn't in the game we played well.  Call it what you will, he was a VITAL cog in the wheel and we miss him.  There's no two ways about that.  I'd take his bad hammy and all right now over what we have...

Without Carl Nix it feels like our running game just took a death blow to the face!

Chev Dex was a non factor last year.  That is why I can not say he was as a vital cog last year.  Allen may have missed some playing time last year as well but he made his presence felt with some splash plays.

Considering how poorly ranked the Bengals defense is and Dex is injured again I would say he is not a vital cog for the Bengals either.  Dexter's last best year was in Zona before going down with his back injury.  He was the MVP for that Zona team.

If he was such a non-factor why are we sucking at the position today?  And let me ask you this, right now if you were BA and Ciny lost their freaking minds and said I'll give you Jax for Flip straight up, give where we are defensively and what you've seen on the field, would you pull the trigger?

"He's the only starter who doesn't return to a Tampa defense ranked 30th against the run, giving up 163 yards per game, 50 more than a Bengals unit ranked 27th. "

Wha??  The Bengals give up 144 yards a game on the ground.  The Bucs give up 162.

Fifty more yards?   ???

It sounds like DexJax thinks he is the reason why the Bucs held stout last year.  Considering his team is giving up 144 on the ground per game, it sounds like he is full of schhhh...you know Pewter Party (LOL!)
Twice the Buccs had championship seasons with a #1 ranked defense...2002 and 2005. Both times the Buccs let D-Jax get away, and followed up with horrible seasons. I actually have thought how eerie this is.

I seem to remember people ripping Dexter last year for his miscues.  Would I pull the trigger? No way.  Jackson has serious back issues and can not be relied upon.   I rather take a average/below average player that can stay healhy over a player that may be above average and has a hard time staying healthy.

The safety spot in this defense has never been a vital cog nor has SSLB.  I would rather have Damien Robinson/Dwight Smith back at this point but that does not mean that both were vital cogs on defense playing safety.

Once it might be eerie, twice is no fluke...especially when you know what this defense is all about and how the SS play is critical to the success...

If that is the case then why is the Bengals defense so poor?

You are skating the issue by adding other players in the mix.  Straight up you'd keep Flip and his 5 tackles missed per game vs D-Jax? ???

Who cares?  Their run defense is poor with him.  Implying the Bucs defense is poor without him I think is absurd.

Well we'll agree to disagree with that one.  I think their d is not better as he's been hurt...
