Giovani Bernard knows the reality of Hue Jackson's promotion, going from his position coach to the team's offensive coordinator. Bernard is expecting a little bit of crazy with a pinch of awesome.

"For me and Benny, I think we've done a good job thus far. I think we can continue to keep doing a good job," Bernard said via NFL. "We just got to go into it with an open mind, and he's (Jackson) going to create this craziest playbook ever, but it's going to be fun. I'm excited for it."

"He was our running back coach and one thing I learned from him is that he brings a different intensity to the position group that he coaches," Bernard said. "Now because he's going to take over the OC job he's going to bring that entire intensity that us running backs were under during practice, he's going to bring that to the entire offense. I think it will spread out to the team and help us."

Jackson spent the season as Bernard's running backs coach in 2013. We have to think if Jackson has his way, the Bengals won't ask Andy Dalton to threaten team records for most passes attempted during a regular season and give Bernard and BenJarvus Green-Ellis steady work.
