It seems as if the Bengals' attitude has been that their opponents can't stop them even if they know what is coming. Throughout the game against the Panthers, Palmer forced the ball to Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens. Based on what we have seen so far, they are trying to get those two involved early.
When they get away from that, the offense moves much better. The screens to Jermaine Gresham worked. Jordan Shipley has hands of glue and gets open. On the last drive that led to the Cedric Benson touchdown pass, they tried two misdirection passes to Gresham and Benson. Those worked beautifully but one wonders why they aren't creative like that more often.
When the quarterback is struggling, the offensive coordinator should try go make life easier for him. Those plays run on the final drive are the kinds of plays they should be running more often. We'll see if that happens against the Browns.
