Bengals Coaches Like What They See With Clint Boling At Left Guard

We've discussed way too much about Nate Livings this week, mostly in response to offensive line coach Paul Alexander defending Livings saying he's "having a good camp." Cincy Jungle's own Joe Goodberry, applying his own formula, concluded that Livings had a good game against the Lions, even though he allowed a quarterback sack that lost six yards and put the young Bengals offense into second-and-16.

According to Geoff Hobson of the Bengals coaching staff is liking what they see out of rookie Clint Boling at left guard; a position that in our opinion should at least be up for competition. The Bengals are also experimenting Boling at center as well, but didn't get a chance during the preseason game last Friday after airmailing a snap during warmups admitting afterward, "I'll try not to snap it over somebody's head in warmups."

The team may try putting Boling at right guard as well, giving the team a single backup player at all three interior positions on the offensive line; that is if he can't beat Livings out to start at left guard.
