After years of off-field distractions and on-field inconsistency, the Cincinnati Bengals are looking to make their third straight playoff appearance in 2013. With two playoff seasons and two early exits in their rearview, the Bengals are hoping that their offseason tweaking will be enough to give the team a deep playoff run or even their first Super Bowl trip since 1989.
With a solid young quarterback, a 1000 yard rusher, and one of the best wide receivers in the NFL returning, the Bengals were able to spend their first two draft picks on fine tuning their already strong offense.
Their first pick, Tyler Eifert, is a tall tight-end who led Notre Dame’s National Championship runner-up team in receiving. Eifert will allow the Cincinnati Bengals to run a two tight-end set along with veteran Jermaine Gresham. Weak-armed quarterback Andy Dalton should love having Eifert as a new short-yardage option.
The Bengals used their second pick on Giovani Bernard, a speedy and explosive running back out of UNC. Bernard will complement BenJarvus Green-Ellis’ smash-mouth style. While Green-Ellis will be the primary back, Bernard offers a more elusive option giving the Bengal’s offense another dimension.
Geno Atkins will return as the leader to a nearly unchanged Cincinnati Bengals’ defense. The biggest addition comes at outside linebacker with veteran James Harrison defecting from the division rival Pittsburgh Steelers. While Harrison is 35 and reaching the end of his career, he is an upgrade to one of the Bengal’s weakest 2012 positions. Many fans were hoping for a change at middle linebacker, but with few upgrade options the team chose to stick with Rey Maualuga. Hopefully for the Bengals, Harrison will serve as a mentor for the once promising Maualuga.
The 2013 season looks promising for a fine-tuned Cincinnati Bengals squad. While this might not be the season that brings the Bengals back to the Super Bowl, it is clear that they are on the right path.
