Towards season’s end, all feelings hit the field and the benches at the same time. Cincinnati Bengals lead offensive tackles are finally out of new parts and must be grounded for the remainder of the Bengals 2017 season. Frankly, the Cincinnati Bengals 2017 season was not a big winner, and the Bengals play the Detroit Lions in front of the Cincinnati home crowd, during the final weeks of the regular NFL season.
Bengals Solution: Remove the Hurting Offense
Two offensive linebackers – Ogbuehi and Smith – were both injured, during the action. The weather was cold, and the temperatures were to blame. Both men were placed on the injured list for the remainder of the Bengals regular season.Next year will be the fourth and final year of Ogbuehi‘s rookie contract, and Smith is set to retire the injury bench until the end of this specific season, according to the ‘Enquirer.com.’ Chiefly, Ogbuehi has been injured multiple times, during the 2017 NFL regular season. Including his shoulder injury, Cedric Ogbuehi is not at the proper capacity to protect Cincinnati Bengals “Pro Bowl level” quarterback Andy Dalton.
Andy Dalton Retires Early this Year, Too
Cincinnati Bengals QB-Andy Dalton is a great football player. His skills continue to bring this team to new heights and ventures throughout his career with Cincinnati. Unfortunately, between him getting injured or blamed for not targeting wide receivers, Dalton should begin looking for a better team, right?
WR-A.J. Green and TE-Tyler Eifert are primary targets when the field appears rough and crowded to QB-Dalton. However, NFL enthusiasts are marking that the coaching staff is not satisfied with QB-Dalton’s efforts of managing how to get the football to those particular receivers. “The Andy Dalton era is probably nearing its end…,” according to ‘CBSSports.’
Moreover, consider the running game and throw the football away into the reach of competitive defensive players is more important than hitting those receivers. In relation, the Cincinnati Bengals running-game is at stake. The RB-Joe Mixon [Sidelined with a concussion]: RB-Giovani Bernard exchange is the last hope in this year’s Bengals offense. But, the offensive tackles are coming up missing. Now, the CinCin is down to a skeleton crew of only six “healthy” players on the offensive line.
