That simple. You want to fix one thing that should be it
Bengals 2nd down 6+ to go Benson averages 3.4 yds per carry 0 tds 2 fumbles and longest run of 9 yds.
With the amount of penalties and teams knowing that the run is coming 90% of the time on 2nd down is it really worth giving up a down every series for 3yds?
Next comes 3rd and 6 or 7 and then a false start and the obvious 3rd and long pass. Essentially 2 of every 3 downs Defenses know exactly what we are doing.
Still believe in every one on this team and that they can be dangerous and make the playoffs. Early 1970's Bengals started 1-6 and made the playoffs This team is too good but nobody can win when you are so predictable.
