By all rights the score should have been 35-10 instead of 15-10. Especially with all the opportunities in the red zone.
The Bengals did everything right in the offseason. Replaced Shayne Graham with a kicker who looks to be better so far and added Carson some firepower. Add TO, Shipley, and Gresham and the Bengals should have a pretty impressive offense. Palmer should have no excuses.
Palmer still has not taken the step forward to being an elite QB. I don't know if its the playcalling by Brat or just lack of execution, but something is definitely wrong.
I'm equally worried about the running game. We ran Cedric Benson into the ground last season and he is being outplayed by Bernard Scott. I wouldn't be surprised if Scott ends up starting by the end of the season, whether it be outperforming Benson or injury.
