Going into the draft Jonah Williams Jersey 2019 , ESPN still doesn’t have much faith in Cincinnati. Will they be able to prove them wrong?"The Bengals’ 2019 schedule is out, and the NFL draft isn’t far away. That makes this the perfect time for many outlets to check back in on how they currently feel about these teams before they start using draft picks. Mike Clay of ESPN went back and re-examined the over/unders set for each team’s win total, and it shouldn’t be a surprise that it wasn’t favorable to the Bengals.The Bengals over/under is set at six wins, and Clay projects the team to have 5.5.When you consider that free agency is likely what influenced most of Clay’s decisions, it isn’t surprising that he didn’t view the Bengals favorably. Cincinnati made more moves earlier than we were use to, but it still was far from flashy. They added Miller who will start at right guard and be a huge improvement over Alex Redmond, but other than that they really added rotational players and kept their own free agents.Clay mentions that the Bengals’ roster is weak Color Rush Jonah Williams Jersey , which aside from some glaring holes at linebacker and offensive tackle I’d whole heartily disagree with. It is obvious that Cincinnati is banking on Zac Taylor being able to come in and do something with this set of players that Marvin Lewis’ staff was unable to. It honestly isn’t out of the realm of possibilities that Taylor’s new offensive system could be the jolt of life this team needs to start contending for the playoffs again. However, it doesn’t change the fact that to an outsider looking in that this is still basically the same roster that has failed to make the playoffs the past three seasons. This feeling could easily shift if the Bengals grab a couple of instant impact players on the first few days of the draft, but based on the roster now, how much has really changed?It is pretty easy though to see even just giving the Bengals a modern looking offense could do wonders for them. It still comes down to can Andy Dalton get back to his 2015 form? We will have to see how well he does in Taylor’s system, and how well the rest of the offense is utilized.It is frustrating seeing the Bengals viewed so poorly by the national media, but these kinds of rankings are usually based on how flashy a team was during free agency. That is something the Bengals will never win awards for. Still, if Cincinnati wants to make their way back to the playoffs Cheap Jonah Williams Jersey , they need to ht a few home runs in the upcoming draft. Ultimately though, winning is the only way to change the perception of this team. The reality is at this moment, this is roughly the same roster that has failed to make it to the playoffs or even achieve a winning record for three straight seasons. Now that the NFL Draft has wrapped up and teams are practicing, it’s time for a look at how the entire NFL projects for next season."Rookie minicamp is over for the Bengals, and the truly dead period of the NFL offseason has been thrusted into our lives. With that comes more power rankings that reflect the apparent consensus regarding the state of the Bengals. Peter King of Football Morning in America capped off his latest power rankings with three franchises he deems are in serious rebuilding stages. The first of those three teams are none other than the Bengals.Fittingly enough, the Arizona Cardinals and the Miami Dolphins are the two teams below the Bengals, taking the 31st and 32nd spots Jonah Williams Jersey Womens , respectively.In the month of May, we have little to no idea how good or bad teams will be in four months’ time. Weeks’ worth of untimely injuries, player development or regression and the cohesion of fresh talent meshing with established veterans has yet to occur. Projection is the name of the game right now, and projection is only based off the facts at hand.Essentially, any team identified as bad at this point of the calendar can very easily prove that to be false. Are the Bengals (and therefore the Cardinals and Dolphins) bad teams? We don’t know. What we do know is that they are unproven in similar periods of massive turnover. Compared to the rest of the NFL, that’s not very flattering at the moment.Those objective similarities fittingly group the Bengals right in with the supposed worst teams in the league. Not because Cincinnati got noticeably worse this spring, because they didn’t Jonah Williams Cincinnati Bengals Jersey , but a sense of stability has been lost with the Bengals. That stability kept them within striking distance of the consistently elite teams for the last several years, but also held them back simultaneously. Now, they’re back to square one. Everything we think we know about them is gone with Marvin Lewis. That’s terrifying and exciting at the same time. Before media such as King can crown them, they have to prove they’ve taken the proper steps past removing the problem. The Bengals hold real estate at the bottom of most power rankings right now, and that’s the price they pay for becoming unpredictable for the first time in a long time.
