Quarterback Josh Johnson

I do believe that the Bengals have found a back-up quarterback, and that man is Josh Johnson. He had aTD pass and showed a lot of speed, especially on that 43 yard scramble on his opening drive, and a 14 yard scramble later on. His passing is still a little inconsistent, but he made some nice plays, most notably the 21-yard TD pass to Brandon Tate. If Andy Dalton gets hurt, this would be a fun little replacement to watch and could serve as pretty good trade bait.

Wide Receiver Dane Sanzenbacher

The first thing I noticed about this guy was his speed and elusiveness, which was on display on that 71-yard punt return touchdown. He can also get open as he caught a 36-yard TD pass from former Cardinals starter John Skelton.

Right now, I see him as a #4 or #5 receiver, and he could move up in the depth chart. Returning wise, he could share some returns with Adam Jones, Brandon Tate and Andrew Hawkins when he returns.
