The Bengals have underwent some changes this year and two of the biggest ones are the change in offensive and defensive coordinators.  The defense shouldn’t look much different but the offense, it has taken on a different Hue, no pun intended.  Hue Jackson, the new offensive coordinator, is a no nonsense coach and he will put together the best combinations of player that will help this offense become more sucessful. Jackson has already made headlines during OTA’s with the demotion of BenJarvis Green-Ellis and the insertion of rookie second rounder Jeremy Hill with the second and first team.  The Bengals offense is also looking for ways to get both of it’s young backs on the field at the same time. Mohammad Sanu has thrown some passes and rookie center Russell Bodine was running with the first team.  Here is a look as some of the combinations of players that could make it onto the field and some formations the offense could be using.
