Bengals fans, STAND UP! Not only have we scored 8 offensive TD’s the past two weeks, we have finished games strong and have won the past two games fair and square. Our depth at corner is really coming into effect and our pass rush is starting to become a big game factor. AJ Green is a top NFL receiver and he’s showing us why every single week! Also, he’s beginning to get some help from Jermaine Gresham and his awesome ability to get yards after contact, and rookie Mohammed Sanu. Here’s why I’m really excited, with Byron Leftwich starting for the Steelers, 2nd place in the AFC North is all but in our lap; If they lose every game with Leftwich, who could play up to 3 or 4 games, they will be below .500 with us winning like this, ending with a 10-6 record could be all we need to get a wild-card berth. Other reasons for excitement:
1. Our coaches are coaching their butts off! Marvin is taking good risks, and Jay Gruden is making pretty good calls, meanwhile, Zimmer is being Zimmer, not allowing huge plays while letting his Defense make big plays.
2. Marvin Jones should be back this week! Jones’ natural talent and speed compliments AJ Green’s unbelievable play. And is Marvin can beat single coverage, then he should make his breakout right when we need him to, at the end of the season.
3. Our interior offensive line is playing phenomenal, they shut down the elite rush of the Giants last week, and played extremely solid against some first round picks on the Chiefs D-line. I’m not going to jinx us in any way, but all I’m saying is that we’re getting hot at the right time, the middle and hopefully the end of the season. Lets hope we keep it up against the Raiders and Carson Palmer! Who Dey!
