Joe Mixon doesn’t seem to care if no one else believes in the Bengals as the 2019 season gets closer by the day – he feels this year’s team has potential.
The Bengals lead back said via the Dayton Daily News that the Bengals are going to be better than people think, and that the teams offense is going to be dangerous.
“Schematically, you know Coach Taylor has come in, the way he’s got it set up, it’s crazy,” Mixon said.
“It’s night and day from what everyone has seen these past years from the old Bengals. Coach Taylor, he’s got it where it’s going to be a nightmare for the defense. I look forward to it. Everybody has to take it upon themselves to be the best of themselves in this offense. You can count on the people and leaders out there to deliver.”
Mixon seems to feel that the Bengals offense is going to be very much like that of the NFC Champion Rams of last season, and that Taylor is going to be the driving force behind it.
“The film speaks for itself,” Mixon said.
“You see the Rams running wild all day. We’ve got that same offense. I would think we have better players than them with these offensive weapons. I would think we can do the same stuff, if not more, than they can.”
The Bengals already have injury issues with A.J. Green missing time into the season with an ankle injury, but with the hopeful continued emergence from wide out Tyler Boyd and Mixon leading the run game, the Bengals are hoping that Mixon’s words ring true about being dangerous once the season begins.
