The Bengals are this year’s hard knocks team, so they will be under the microscope for the entire training camp season. Most teams respond to this scrutiny with a strong season, so we’ll have to see if the Bengals can keep that streak going.

 

Camp Observations:

 

It’s obvious that QB Andy Dalton is the emotional leader of this team.

 

Two rookies who are looking terrific are RB Giovani Bernard and TE Tyler Eifert.

 

DB Brandon Ghee is out-playing several players who were drafted higher than he was.

 

HB Orson Charles is receiving the most coaches’ praise so far.

 

LB James Harrison is one scary dude. He’s added a bit more toughness to the defensive squad.
