Aug 24, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Josh Johnson (8) rolls out to throw a pass in the third quarter of the game against the Dallas Cowboys at AT

1. Josh Johnson runs for 300+ yards this season.

Jay Gruden, I’m sure was not happy with Johnson’s critical turnovers and questionable decision-making at times during the preseason, highlighted by his fumble in the red zone with a chance to sit on the ball and ice the game vs the Titans.

But he has to be thinking of the possibilities of Johnson as a runner. Johnson would be another way to ease last year’s struggles on third down with an added dimension to the offense. It also would be nice to see the Bengals burning teams with the dual-threat QB.

 

2.  Giovani Bernard has more receiving yards than Tyler Eifert.

Gio had an excellent training camp and preseason showing exactly why the Bengals made him the first running back taken. Tyler Eifert’s preseason was cut short by a wrist injury but still there just won’t be enough footballs to go around and I believe that Eifert will be the one on the short end.

 

3. Mohamad Sanu scores more TD’s then AJ Green.

Mo Sanu was built for 3rddown and the red zone he continued to show toughness after the catch and the ability to take a quick slant to the end zone through defenders. With opposing defenses focused more on stopping A.J. Green, look for Sanu and others to exploit the underneath. My prediction of course: AJ 10 touchdowns, Sanu 11.

    The way that Zim uses his defensive players, I doubt Hunt sits the entire season. I think they’ll work him in slowly and likely in games where they have a significant lead. Furthermore, the Bengals have a vested interest, if Michael Johnson walks next season, in ensuring that Hunt is ready. For that, he needs reps, particularly in games.
