They’re reaching back into history again for a bit of nostalgia Antworten

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals celebrated their 50th season last year Chuma Edoga Jersey , finishing 7-9. honoring their 1988 Super Bowl team — the last one to do anything noteworthy in the postseason.Owner Mike Brown remembers those giddy days 30 years ago.“Do I think about that? All the time,” Brown said. “That’s what’s in my mind. I know the feeling you’re talking about, and I want us to somehow come back and grab onto that again. It’s the best of times, and some of that is what keeps me plugging along here.”The Bengals haven’t won a playoff game since the 1990 season, the sixth-longest streak of postseason futility in NFL history. They’ve had seven chances under coach Marvin Lewis and blown them all, including an epic last-minute meltdown against the Steelers in the 2015 season at Paul Brown Stadium.They open a new season trying to outrun a lot of bad recent history.The stadium will likely have a lot of empty seats when the Bengals bring members of the ’88 team onto the field during their season opener against Baltimore on Thursday, Sept. 13. They failed to fill the stadium for any game last season, and attendance dropped noticeably as a second straight losing season wound down.Lewis was noncommittal about sticking around, but was rewarded with a two-year extension and a 16th chance to try to get it right. Brown’s decision to stay with a coach who has the worst playoff record in NFL history sent a message of more-of-the-same in Cincinnati , where many fans have given up.“Of course I worry about attendance figures,” Brown said. “I’ve been able to add and subtract for a long time. I can look out there. I see what you see. Does it bother me? It bothers me to my core. I don’t like it, and I dearly want to get us back to where we have the enthusiasm and the support that I think we want.”Five things to watch with the Bengals this season:CH-CH-CHANGES: Even though Lewis stayed, Brown permitted significant changes in the coaching staff, including a new set of coordinators on offense and defense from a year ago and a new offensive line coach. While avoiding change at the top, Brown is hoping adjustments in the staff are enough to make a difference.OH-THAT-LINE: The offensive line was the biggest reason the Bengals finished last in the league in yards gained. They traded with Buffalo for left tackle Cordy Glenn, signed right tackle Bobby Hart and drafted center Billy Price in the first round. The overhauled line had some issues in the preseason and will be the focus throughout the season.DALTON 8.0: Quarterback Andy Dalton has proven he can be among the league’s most efficient passers when he’s got time. He’s not as adept at improvising, and last year he spent a lot of time on the run because of the line’s inability to protect him. The Bengals have put more emphasis on big plays under coordinator Bill Lazor, throwing deep often during preseason. The Bengals need breakout years from receiver John Ross and running back Joe Mixon — their top two picks last year — along with third-year receiver Tyler Boyd.GROUNDED DEFENSE: The Bengals gave multiyear extensions to defensive end Carlos Dunlap and tackle Geno Atkins before the final preseason game, making them the foundation of a unit looking for improvement. The defense slipped to 18th in yards allowed last season.TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE: The Bengals sold only 47 Clelin Ferrell Jersey ,732 tickets for their final home game last year in their 65,515-seat stadium, their smallest crowd since 2011. They didn’t come close to filling the stadium for any game, not even against the Steelers and their large contingent of fans. For their first preseason home game this season, the Bengals sold only 35,633 tickets. For many years, it was rare for great NFL wide receivers to change teams. A simple search of the game's top wideouts from the 50s to the 90s, and you'll notice that many of them played for only one or two teams.Only in the 21st century has it become more frequent for top wideouts to change teams. It's hard to believe that world class deep threat Brandin Cooks is already on his third team in as many years, while speedster DeSean Jackson is already on the third team of his excellent decade-long career.Now, major wideout talents like Antonio Brown , Odell Beckham Jr., Julio Jones and DeAndre Hopkins look destined to finish out their careers with their respective teams. But in 2019 and 2020 free agency, we could see some top wide receivers sign with new teams. But oh, why wait until the offseason?A handful of big-time playmaking receivers are bound to get traded in the near future. It may happen in the 2019 offseason, or we may have to wait until 2020. But either way, you can expect a handful of notable pass-catchers to find new homes between now and the start of the 2020 season.Although the likes of Larry Fitzgerald and Randall Cobb have only suited up for one NFL team in their respectable careers, we could very well see them changing clubs soon. On the flip side, some teams may be desperate to move out their wide receivers in order to save money.Here are 10 NFL wide receivers who could change teams in the near future, and where they should go.
