Bengals offensive line ranked surprisingly high in pass-blocking efficiency in 2017

Bengals offensive line ranked surprisingly high in pass-blocking efficiency in 2017

Pro Football Focus thinks quite a few offensive lines were worse at pass blocking than the Bengals’ in 2017. Bengals fans suffered through watching an offensive line that caused Andy Dalton to be abused and Joe Mixon to be lackluster in 2017. Although I’m sure most would prefer to pretend last season just didn’t happen at all. Pro Football Focus has a scorching take for Bengals’ fans though. They believe the Bengals really weren’t the worst offensive line when it came to pass blocking. PFF actually ranked the Bengals tied for 19th overall in pass-blocking efficiency in the NFL....

Ken Anderson believes Bengals’ offseason changes will be good for Andy Dalton

Ken Anderson underwent a huge offensive change after spending most of his career playing in one system. He thinks a change of pace will be as good for Andy Dalton as it was for him. Andy Dalton took on one of the biggest tasks of his career before he even walked onto an NFL field. When he chose to wear the No. 14, he instantly put on a very big pair of shoes, shoes that were once filled by Ken Anderson, the Bengals’ all-time leading passer. He was also the quarterback for the Bengals when they went to the Super Bowl in 1981. Something that fueled that run was a change in offensive...

A.J. Green wants to reach the century mark in TDs with the Bengals

A.J. Green wants to reach the century mark in TDs with the Bengals

A.J. Green has his eye on 100 career touchdowns, and he wants to do that with the Bengals. A.J. Green will probably go down as the best Bengals’ wide receiver ever by the time he calls it a career. He may even get close to reaching former Bengals offensive tackle Anthony Munoz as the greatest Bengal ever. He still has a long way to go though, but he has his eyes set on a mark that could easily put him in that conversation. According to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com, Green would like to reach the 100 touchdown mark during his career in Cincinnati. A.J. Green has never been a numbers guy but...

Andy Dalton and Darqueze Dennard use same phrase to describe William Jackson, “a special talent”

Jackson continues to draw praise from coaches and teammates alike during offseason practices. The Bengals hope he breaks out in 2018 after showing flashes of dominance last season. William Jackson quietly had one of the best seasons among cornerbacks in the NFL in 2017. He did not get the playing time he deserved due to the Bengals starting Adam Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick on the boundary whenever they were both healthy. When he did manage to make his way onto the field, he was the best cornerback in the game. According to Profootballfocus.com, (Jackson) allowed a passer rating of just 36.1...

Comparing Andy Dalton during the Jay Gruden and Hue Jackson eras, as well as what followed

How has Dalton’s play changed under different coaching, and what does he need to do to establish himself as a top quarterback in 2018?

Many claim that Dalton’s past success, such as his 2015 season, was the result of coaching. He has dropped off in each of the past two seasons since Hue Jackson left for the Browns.

Bengals QB coach Alex Van Pelt has been impressed with Andy Dalton this offseason

The Bengals’ new QB coach likes what he’s seen from his new protege. A big offseason is in store for Andy Dalton, and for good reason. With just three years left on his current contract, it’s getting close to being time for a new extension with the Bengals. These days, most NFL quarterbacks sign extensions with one or two years left on their deal, so Dalton could be cashing in on a big payday soon. However, two straight so-so seasons with the Bengals has caused his stock to dip quite a bit. After playing at an MVP-level in 2015, Dalton’s play has regressed in each of the past two...

Are Bengals getting snubbed in NFL Top 100While last season was a disappointment for the Cincinnati Bengals, there were plenty of players that still performed at a high level.

Bengals get poor grade from ESPN in offseason review

This seems a tad harsh for a team that’s done well at addressing their biggest needs this offseason. The offseason of no respect for the Bengals continues. The latest example is at ESPN, who just released offseason grades for all 32 teams. Despite having a productive offseason that saw several major needs addressed, ESPN felt it was necessary to give the Bengals a ‘C’ for their offseason. They also gathered opinions from anonymous team executives, who had mixed opinions about the Bengals’ roster, specifically Andy Dalton. There wasn’t much to get excited about in Cincy as the...
