You don’t always see that. (21st Jan 20 at 2:09am UTC)
By watching the trade deadline come and go Deshaun Davis Jersey Womens , the Bengals have established that they are content with the team they have. That means they need to find ways to either get more from the players they have had on the field, or start playing players who can do a better job. These are just some of the players who need to step up to keep their jobs as well as the Bengals relevant:Alex Redmond, right guard To say Redmond shouldn’t be a starting guard is a little too bold; he has shown flashes of being a competent player. However, if the good is a few well blocked running plays, and the bad is being one of the worst pass blocking guards in all of the NFL, then it may be time to start considering a change.It’s hard to see Redmond performing significantly better for the remainder of the season after a single week of rest, but the Bengals offense is going to let him try. With an expiring contract in the back of his mind, Redmond closing the season on high note is crucial in more ways than one.John Ross, wide receiver Ross’ struggles in the early part of the season have been mostly injury related. His groin injury that he suffered against the Falcons in Week 4 has been the primary culprit. He aggravated it a few weeks later against the Chiefs after missing the two games against the Dolphins and Steelers leading up to it. He may not be able to go against the Saints in Week 10 Deshaun Davis Cincinnati Bengals Jersey , but when he does come back healthy, the team needs him to produce.Ross only has seven catches on the season with two touchdowns, but he is a valuable distraction for opposing defenses. He helps pull coverage off of guys like Tyler Boyd and A.J. Green, but Ross still needs to be more productive. He is too fast and dynamic of a player to just be reduced to a decoy role in a receiving corp that is desperate for a play maker outside of Boyd and Green.Preston Brown, linebacker The Bengals are pretty thin at linebacker without Nick Vigil and Vontaze Burfict. They really need someone to step up at the position, and it is the perfect chance for Brown to prove his worth for when he goes to negotiate a contract after the season. Brown is known for his ability to play the run, but the Bengals really need him (or any linebacker) to do something in pass coverage. Cincinnati has been getting roasted over the middle of the field, and that really can’t continue if postseason success is on this team’s mind. Andy Dalton, quarterbackDalton is having one of his better seasons in his eight-year career. He is tied for third in the NFL with 17 touchdown passes Deshaun Davis Jersey 2019 , but when the offense can’t sustain drives late in the game, it falls on his shoulders. Since Week 5, the Bengals offense has been inconsistent at best. With a lackluster defense, opponents will always have a chance to keep up with the Bengals offense no matter what kind of day they are having. In terms of orchestrating late-game drives and general efficiency in the red zone, Dalton has been exceptional, and you could easily argue that the issues on offense lie with the play-calling being far too conservative when the Bengals are leading. But Dalton is the quarterback, and the responsibility falls on him to elevate the team. Cincinnati is no stranger to Auburn alumni becoming great football players,"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections #BITESIZEFilm RoomRoster Transactions and ContractsOrange & Black InsiderSalary Cap And CBADeshaun Davis already has Bengals greats in his cornerNew,9commentsCincinnati is no stranger to Auburn alumni becoming great football players Deshaun Davis Jersey Mens ,EDTShareTweetShareShareDeshaun Davis already has Bengals greats in his cornerDale Zanine-USA TODAY SportsWith their 10 selections in the NFL Draft, the Bengals doubled down on two positions of need. One pick before they took a second running back in Rodney Anderson, Deshaun Davis joined third-round pick Germaine Pratt as Cincinnati’s newest linebackers.Pratt became the first NC State prospect drafted by the franchise since Scott Kooistra, but Davis now enters an impressive list of Auburn alumni drafted by the Bengals. His former teammate Carl Lawson and C.J. Uzomah represent the present, and Pat Sims and Rudi Johnson are examples of mid-round steals of the past.Then there’s first-round picks Takeo Spikes and Willie Anderson, who rightfully headline the group, and both have nothing but praise for Davis.“What you expect out of Deshaun Davis is not only will he be accountable for himself, but he will hold everybody else accountable. And consistency,” Spikes told Geoff Hobson of “The beautiful thing about him is he’s advanced from the mental side of it. Mentally he’s there... I’m happy the Bengals gave him an opportunity to fill a spot and I do believe he can fill a spot.“He’s a big picture guy. A really big-picture guy Youth Deshaun Davis Jersey ,” Spikes says. “Most guys are into the fame and all that goes with playing. But he wanted to know if he did certain things to get this, how he could leverage it to be in a better position when the game is over. That really attracted me to him.”Spoken like a true big brother.The connection between Davis and Anderson is strong as well, both were once phenoms at Vigor High School’s football program and went on to become drafted by the Bengals after first playing for the Tigers. A year after Anderson was drafted, the Bengals hired Mark Duffner as their linebackers coach. In his second year, the Bengals drafted Spikes with their first-round pick and five tremendous seasons for the linebacker followed. Duffner was there for all of them, and now returns to the staff as a senior defensive assistant to coach Davis.“One of the best teachers I ever had,” Spikes says. “Put it this way. I don’t think I would have been able to grasp everything I got from other guys if it wasn’t for Mark Duffner laying down the foundation for me.”Tem Lukabu is the new linebackers coach, and having coached against Davis in the SEC, what he saw on tape is what he got on the field last week.“That guy is fun to be around White Deshaun Davis Jersey ,” Lukabu said after rookie minicamp. “The No. 1 thing is that he commands the huddle. That guy’s a MIKE (middle linebacker). He wants to call the plays. He wants to be the signal caller. You don’t always see that. Great instincts. Very good recall. He asks all the right questions.”Talk is nice, but Pratt is the linebacker that has a roster spot essentially locked up. Someone has to fill Vontaze Burfict’s shadow at WILL linebacker. Davis’ future resides in the middle and his intangibles and play strength should help him secure a spot on the final roster.If not, head coach Zac Taylor may be having a word with a couple of Auburn legends.
