It doesn't matter that Cincinnati has all those weapons when their offensive line is terrible. They lost Kevin Zeitler, a top 5 offensive guard, and Andrew Whitworth, a top 5 left tackle in free agency and all of their replacements have been really bad. The one decent player on that O-line is Clint Boling.

I don't understand why the Bengals didn't draft any more help for them - they've spent 3 2nd round picks on HBs in the past 5 seasons! (Bernard, Hill, Mixon) Draft O-linemen in the early rounds and wait on HBs, there have been many teams that have waited on HB and found guys in the 4th-7th round and even undrafted who can be great. Just poor management of the roster by the Bengals.

They could do what Dallas did. Build you offensive line for four years, get your quarterback hurt, have a crappy year, and then draft a running back.

IIRC the Rams did that last season?

The record was for the first two games being home games.
