3 Cincinnati Bengals under the microscope this year

The yearly hopes and dreams for a Bengals trip to the Super Bowl are heating up. This year, lots of players will need to step up to achieve that goal.

There’s a dirty little secret floating along the shores of the Ohio River. It’s one that could literally cause a major happening in the city of Cincinnati. At some point in the 2017 season, the Bengals will have to take a stance on what they want to do. Are they going to remain the standard for mediocrity in the AFC North or take things to the next level? So, what’s the bombshell? A few members of the Bengals franchise have to step things up.  

There’s nothing wrong with stepping your game up. Whether you’re an athlete with an agenda or working a 9-to-5 gig, making a change can be refreshing personally. Taking on the responsibility of making the move from average to superb is always filled with hesitation and grief from those around you. But, the end result is well worth the effort put forth.

If the Bengals are going to make some noise in the playoffs, there has to be a serious dedication by those individuals who will be under the microscope. There are more than a few candidates for the critique. But, for the sake of time and familiarity, the major players in the production are on deck.
