The Preseason is half over. The Cincinnati Bengals have showed that their first team is close to picking right back up where they left off last season, but it ends there. Here are my votes for this weeks, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. The Good:This week goes to Andy Dalton going 8 for 8 on passes and passing over 100 yards in a short time of play. It included a beautiful drop in pass to Mohammed Sanu for a 43 yard touchdown. He has shown over the past 2 games that his decision making and accuracy have improved. The Bad: This award goes to all the injuries that seem to be piling up so far this preseason for the Bengals. Vontaze Burfict and Jeremy Hill down with a shoulder injury. Rex Burkhead’s knee that was an MCL injury at last report. Darqueze Dennard aggravated a hip injury, and Marvin Jones foot keeps them down. The Ugly: After the first team left the field, the Jets scored 22 unanswered points. The Defense took terrible tackling routes to ball carriers. Matt Scott took a huge step back going less than 50% completion for the rest of his time on the field. The offensive line looked incredibly shaky and really no depth was shown on any aspect of this team past the 1st team talent. I was incredibly encouraged by the talent this team has starting but if they keep getting injury plagued then this may be a long season for this Cincinnati Bengals organization.
