Marvin Lewis has yet to lead the Bengals to consecutive winning seasons.

The 2011 NFL season was a banner year for the Cincinnati Bengals. They drafted two future stars in Andy Dalton and A.J. Green and also made the playoffs for the first time since 2009.

Bengals GM Mike Brown was consistently praised throughout the season—most notably after Carson Palmer was traded to the Oakland Raiders.

The success of this fresh, young Bengals team has many fans believing it is a turning point in the franchise's less than stellar history, and head coach Marvin Lewis will enter the 2012 season looking to lead Cincinnati to their first back-to-back winning seasons since 1975-76.

Fans saw a lot of things to be optimistic about going into to 2012. Yes, the Bengals made mistakes week-to-week and probably lost games they should not have lost, but that is where the offseason comes in. 

Here are five improvements the Bengals must make in 2012. Be sure to share your ideas with a comment!
