Believe it or not, Cincinnati Bengals training camp is underway and is making plenty of noise without the additional help of HBO's Hard Knocks.
Don't worry, the extra cameras are still there, and the show is set to proceed as scheduled. What we're saying is the Bengals are one of the most exciting young teams in the NFL and have the attention of NFL fans everywhere.
