Bengals Early Bird Special

Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. Hopefully it was filled with relaxation, beer, friends and family, more beer, and even more beer in order to forget the Bengals ugly loss to the Detroit Lions.

Alright so I hope no one is prepared to raise the white flag on this season. If you are, then that shows how loyal you are as a Bengals fan. Preseason is a tune-up for the regular season. The results that happen during the preseason is a big "who cares" type ordeal. What matters the most is the development of the team and players. Any team can lose every game during the preseason and manage to find some success during the regular season.

Now I'm not saying that the Bengals are going to go winless during the preseason, nor am I saying that the Bengals are going to be good during the regular season. All I'm saying is that it's the preseason, let's not get too worked up over one game. In my opinion as long as we witness progress in the evolution of some of the rookies on the squad such as Andy Dalton, A.J. Green, and Clint Boling then that's a positive note.

Another element that is vital for the Bengals is the development of the players being able to work together as a team. With the new West Coast offense the Bengals need to be able to run plays together and have success running those plays. If they can't run plays successfully then this season will be a long one.

Let's hope the preseason opener was only a hiccup for the Bengals and that they have success in the near future!

Here is a look at what you may have missed or overlooked from the weekend.
