Biggest Improvement Next Year


We have been spending countless threads and posts debating the draft and free agency. Putting forth our thoughts on who the Bengals need to target to be better next year. To take that next step and win some playoff games. As I read all these different posts and started looking at the Bengals roster I don't think one player or a group of players is going to account for the Bengals biggest improvement next year.

The Bengals went 9-7 and made the playoffs with a rookie QB, a rookie WR, a rookie OC, no Shipley, a new MLB, a new starting CB and 2 new starting outside LBs. All of these new pieces coupled with no off season or training camp and the Bengals made the playoffs. The biggest improvement next year won't be the addition of a player, it will be the addition of training camp and off season programs/workouts. Gruden can put in his entire playbook. Andy can work on his timing with AJ, Gresham and the other WRs. Rey can get healthy and more comfortable in Zimmer's system as the MLB.

The Bengals are young and will grown as a unit this off season just as we saw them grow during the season. This team will be better to start the season simply by spending the year together. Adding players through the draft and FA will be nice but the biggest impact for the coming season will be their time together.
