Where do things stand with the Bengals football team this season? If you are a true fan, then the season is full of surprises the team is hoping that things look better than they did at the end of 2009; the reason is because the team suffered a season that was not as hopeful as it could have been.
The draft was a high point for the rebuilding that the team will need to go through this season. there are a lot of good prospects that the team picked up in the draft, one of these looks to be the answer to a passing offense that needs a little support.
There is not anything wrong with the passing game per say, there is just a lot of players that are not where they need to be in order to have a fully functional passing game. the team’s hope resting on a quarterback that is more than a little banged up is not an encouraging sight.
Running is one area that also needs a lot of work. # 85 Ocho Cinco will need to master running the ball as well as he does his mouth. while the antics that he displays on the field are great to watch on Sportscenter, I am sure that his teammates are wanting to win.
Any player that feels like comparing his speed to that of a race horse needs help. besides if his running was that good, then he should have ran past the competition without any trouble. either the other team is that good or Ocho is highly over rated.
Besides the man that wants to be a race horse, the Bengals are without a running back to pick up the load. If Ocho decides to lose his mind then the team is screwed. there will need to be a running back that can step up to be the go to guy in case a need should arise.
The defense of the Bengals is a section of the team that will need little to no tweaking when it comes time for mini camps. the defense of the team will be the strongest member of the team that is has. this will be an important aspect to remember when you are considering the advantages that the team will have. this will need to serve as the building blocks for the rest of the team this season.
There is a lot of head scratching when it comes to making sure that the schedule will be one that the team will be able to beat this season. there are a lot of advantages that will be had this season when the team takes to the field. the strength of the schedule will be an important aspect that will need to be taken into account.
No matter if you are a loyal fan or just one that is true as long as the team is winning, there will be a lot of advantages that will be had this season when the team is looking to make the most out of 2010. Depending on what they are looking for, those will either be a wonderful season or a very long one to endure.
The Cincinnati Bengals is based in Cincinnati, Ohio and a former member of the now defunct professional football league, American Football League (AFL). The AFL merged with the National Football League (NFL) in 1966. The Bengals first season was in 1968, playing as an AFL franchise and expansion team; they only became part of the NFL in 1970. The team is now a part of the American Football Conference (AFC) North Division in the National Football League (NFL). their uniform colors are black, white, and orange.
Their first seasons in the NFL
During their membership in the AFL, rusher Paul Robinson led the team and got the honor of rookie of the year. in their first NFL season in 1970, the Bengals won the AFC Central Division but during the playoff, they lost in the first round. Paul Brown, the Bengals esteemed coach from the 1950s guided the team to postseason games in 1973 and 1975. during that time, Bengals quarterback Ken Anderson emerged as one of the premier quarterbacks in the NFL. in both the 1973 and 1975, the Bengals got as far as the playoffs but lost again in the first round.
1980s – a good decade for the Bengals
The next few seasons saw a number of changes, particularly the several replacements of head coach. The result was mixed over the next NFL seasons. in 1981, the Bengals won the division crown once again under the guidance of head coach and hall of famer Forrest Gregg, formerly an offensive tackle. It was a fairly successful season for the Bengals with a couple of their players earning awards. Ken Anderson won his fourth passing title. Wide receiver and rookie Cris Collinsworth and running back Pete Johnson both gained more than a thousand yards. during the playoffs, their luck also turned around, defeating the San Diego Chargers and Buffalo Bills and playing in the Super Bowl. They finally lost to the San Francisco 49ers, the eventual Super Bowl Champions with a record of 26-21. Throughout the mid-80s, the Bengals was a team to contend with and played competitively. in 1985, Boomer Esiason replaced Ken Anderson as quarterback. Like Anderson, Esiason also became one of the best quarterbacks in NFL. in 1987, Cincinnati had a win-loss record of 4-11. The next season, 1988, they finished with a 12-4 record. Esiason won his first National Football Conference passing title and won player of the year together with quarterback Randall Cunningham of the Philadelphia Eagles. among the American Football Conference’s top-rated offense were Cincinnati running back James Brooks, tackle Anthony Munoz, and receiver Eddie Brown. The Bengals once again advanced to their second Super Bowl in a decade, playing against the San Francisco 49ers. But, history, repeating itself, the Bengals lost to the 49ers who scored a touchdown at the last minute.
1990s – a struggle for the Bengals
In 1990, the Bengals once again won in the Divisions, gaining their fifth division title. Boomer Esiason got a 3,000-yard season for six consecutive times. The 1990s was a struggle for the Bengals compared to the 1980s. between 1992 and 1994, the Bengals won only eleven games.
