3 things we need to see out of the Bengals’ new offense

3 things we need to see out of the Bengals’ new offense

Although the offensive coordinator has changed in years past, the Bengals’ offense has not evolved. That needs to change under Zac Taylor and Brian Callahan. The Bengals made a big change at head coach this offseason; bringing in an offensive-minded head coach is a huge reform for a franchise who has not had that since Bruce Coslet. *shudder* Over the last eight years, Andy Dalton has spearheaded some effective offenses, but despite three changes at offensive coordinator over that timeframe, they have failed to properly evolve, creating a stagnation within the heart of the offense. The...

A.J. Green says Bengals will return to the playoffs in 2019

A.J. Green says Bengals will return to the playoffs in 2019

The Bengals wide receiver believes the hype is valid this year. A.J. Green was just one Bengals’ player among many to land on season-ending Injured Reserve. When everyone is healthy, the Bengals’ offense is potent. Last year, however, the Bengals’ offense floundered after losing Green, Tyler Eifert, Andy Dalton, Cordy Glenn, Tyler Kroft, Preston Brown, Nick Vigil, and others. If everyone can stay healthy, Green believes this offense can be as dangerous as any other in the league. “If everyone stays healthy, the sky’s the limit for this offense,” Green said via the team’s...

Jake Dolegala takes advantage of a rare opportunity

Jake Dolegala takes advantage of a rare opportunity

The Bengals’ undrafted rookie quarterback is turned heads in practice after getting some snaps on Andy Dalton’s day off. The Bengals signed Central Connecticut State quarterback Jake Dolegala after he went undrafted this year, and he has all the chips stacked against him. As a quarterback from a small school who was undrafted and going to a team with an established starter, Dolegala has an uphill battle ahead of him this offseason. This means he has to take advantage of every opportunity he can get his hands on. One such opportunity presented itself when Zac Taylor gave the starters the...

No More Excuses for Andy Dalton

Andy Dalton may be under the most pressure of any quarterback in 2019. He either wins playoff games this year or never in Cincinnati. A 68-50 record as a starting quarterback in the NFL and three trips to the Pro Bowl is nothing to sneeze at. That is exactly what Andy Dalton has. Still, his […] No More Excuses for Andy Dalton - Stripe Hype - Stripe Hype - A Cincinnati Bengals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

A.J. Green will participate in Bengals minicamp

A.J. Green will participate in Bengals minicamp

Green will do individual drills as he continues his recovery from his toe injury. The Bengals wrap up OTAs this week with mandatory minicamp. Most, if not all of the roster will be there, including injured players who will be rehabbing and/or watching from the sideline. That includes A.J. Green, who will end up doing more work than expected. According to Geoff Hobson, Green is planning to do individual drills with the wide receivers and quarterbacks. It’s always great for receivers to get in offseason work with their quarterbacks, as Green looks to work with Andy Dalton to learn Zac...

Andy Dalton watched every snap of the Rams’ offense to learn Zac Taylor’s system

Andy Dalton watched every snap of the Rams’ offense to learn Zac Taylor’s system

Dalton has been putting in the work... in the film room. Andy Dalton is set for a breakout year, and he’s doing everything he can to take his game to the next level. Unfairly scrutinized, Dalton hasn’t received much approval from the Cincinnati fanbase since 2016. Although he’s been injured here and there, his play hasn’t drop too drastically, certainly not to the level of Giants quarterback Eli Manning. In an ultra-competitive league like the NFL, you have to continue to build your own way. That said, this offseason, Dalton’s taking the next steps of career in his own hands by...

The Orange and Black Insider Bengals podcast: Forced Hands

The Bengals have a lot of questions regarding the backups for Andy Dalton. Anthony and John tackle that debate as well as discussing... Marvin Lewis and Carson Palmer? The Bengals have concluded their first set of OTAs under Zac Taylor’s watch and there have been a number of takeaways. Some good, some bad, but few can deny that the team has a different air about it this offseason. Even so, there have been headlines outside of the organization that have grabbed the attention of the Bengals’ fan base. Some former employees of the organization recently “threw some shade” at the club...

Is Andy Dalton a Super Bowl Away from the Hall of Fame?

Andy Dalton has had a solid career for the Bengals to this point, but is there a path to Canton for the “Red Rifle”? Even though it is far-fetched, the idea cannot be completely dismissed. Let’s start with the obvious. For it to happen, Dalton must lead the Bengals to playoff wins, and likely a […] Is Andy Dalton a Super Bowl Away from the Hall of Fame? - Stripe Hype - Stripe Hype - A Cincinnati Bengals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

This week, our listeners were curious about the long-term viability of Andy Dalton and A.J. Green, the likelihood of Gerald McCoy choosing the Bengals in a last-minute deal, as well as the outlook of Lou Anarumo’s defense and more! As Bengals OTAs continue, more and more positive news seems to be emerging from the sessions. It’s truly a “New Dey” in Cincinnati, based on reports of Zac Taylor’s coaching style and the structure of practices. However, the Bengals’ quarterback situation is still tenuous. Aside from trepidation surrounding Andy Dalton’s long-term viability in...

Cincinnati Bengals rookie QB Ryan Finley has ‘looked bad’ in camp

It doesn’t sound like Ryan Finley is going to be seizing the Cincinnati Bengals’ starting job anytime soon. The Bengals raised some eyebrows when they drafted Finley in April, but it doesn’t seem like he’s a serious threat to Andy Dalton at the moment. With teams ramping up activities and starting their mandatory minicamps, we’re […] The post Cincinnati Bengals rookie QB Ryan Finley has ‘looked bad’ in camp appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Andy Dalton is the latest to praise rookie tight Drew Sample

The Drew Sample hype train (or positive PR campaign) continues. The Bengals have heard your criticisms of Drew Sample, that much is obvious at this point. Fans and analysts alike were taken back Sample was selected by Cincinnati with the 52nd overall pick in the NFL Draft. The perceived consensus regarding when Sample would be off the board apparently didn’t match what the NFL had in mind, but still, the pick didn’t sit well with most. Since then, there seems to be no better football player in Cincinnati than Sample. From Zac Taylor to A.J. Green, it’s been nothing but good vibes for...

Don’t expect Andy Dalton or A.J. Green to leave Cincinnati anytime soon. The 2019 Bengals will almost certainly be a big change from what we’ve seen in year’s past. Between the hiring of Zac Taylor, releasing defensive stalwart Vontaze Burfict and revamping the offensive line, we’re finally getting the breath of fresh air that fans have been longing for. But there are still some big questions facing the franchise heading into the summer.
