Develop an Offensive Identity

Cincinnati will face a number of questions based around roster construction, but the main question is obvious: How should this team try to win football games? Running back Joe Mixon and wide receiver Tyler Boyd showed that they can be valuable weapons for the Bengals in 2019. Combine that with the return of A.J. Green and Andy Dalton from injury gets you a talented roster, but one that lacks a clear cut plan for winning. I believe the Bengals should attempt a west coast passing, heavy running style that replaces Green as the centerpiece with Mixon. This allows Mixon to be fully utilized, as well as increases the life of A.J.’s career. Whatever the Bengals decide on, it’s important that this roster makes up for what it lacks in superstar talent, with a great game plan.
