Very little has been said about this Cincinnati team.You turn on to see them talking about everyone else and showing said teams camps non stop. Now this is ok and understood, the Bengals were very, well , um bad!! By all means you would not have thought they would be so bad judging the roster going into last season. Now that being said I can understand some of the non mention of our Bengals or what they have done in free agency not to mention Aj Green, everyone was high on this kid , and now that the Bengals have him not a word. I feel this season can be a surprise season in ways , there is a defense returning after the loss of J Joe that really hurts, but we have a movement of young linemen that are poised to cause havoc, we have Rey moving to his natural position,playing his previous he is aware of what and where the other backers are supposed to be. Looking at the front seven on paper looks exciting for sure!
The way I see it with the return to smashmouth running game and all these young wideouts and tightends to hit, I would imagine that Andy Dalton will only need to manage the offense, low scoring games will probably be the norm for a while but if the defense can do its part and hold teams to three and outs instead of sustained drives and scores, this team will surprise. You can't stop everyone all the time but make stops run clock make yours count things could shape up for the better. When the rest of the country comes calling for interviews and what not they should be made aware of the poking and negative talk , and why now ? That would be the nature of the beast and it's a cycle that we see once in a blue moon, here's to this season having the blue moon, we can only hope but things are in line for positives , we constantly live in the negative maybe this could be a new start of what we all have needed. So I lift up my half full cup and say here's mud in your eye cheers,and are you ready for some football!!!
