I don't know anything about the Bengals, but I'll say it sounds like you've done a little Texans' homework & your preview looks & sounds better.
However, you know in the ZBS, especially ours, Chris Meyers will not be blocking Atkins unless something went horribly wrong. He'll have to "contain him" in so much as he'll probably be the one who has to cross Geno's face & hold him so the secondary blocker can take over, but Chris Meyer's thing is getting out in space & pancaking unsuspecting LBs.
I also like your prediction, about our ability to run on the Bengals. I hope it works out that way.
Overall...... good job.
Thanks Fiddler.. If the Bengals are smart they'll shade Atkins over Myers a good part of the game. If they allow Myers to be able to get the outside shoulder of the 3-tech, it could be a problem for Cincy. Focus on the games they'll run inside, its going to be more exciting than everything else imho
