In many ways, the 2011 Cincinnati Bengals reminded a lot of Baltimore Ravens fans of the 2008 version of the Ravens. After a poor prior season, an offensive overhaul with a new rookie QB resulted in surprising a lot of people and making the post-season.
The Bengals continued to appear to be on an upward climb as they had a great draft and will have a full off-season that QB Andy Dalton and WR A.J. Green did not have the benefit of last year as rookies. Our SB Nation sister-site on the Bengals, Cincy Jungle, has some great content, a ton of traffic and excellent contributors.
