The Pittsburgh Steelers personnel may change, but does their scheme and personality change?
Is the ment Men’s Nike Houston Texans 4 Deshaun Watson Elite Alternate Red Jersey Sale al challenge just as big as the Deshaun Watson Clemson Jersey physical challenge when playing Pittsburgh?
They are two back-of-the-roster signings that brought former Men’s Nike Houston Texans 4 Deshaun Watson Elite Alternate Red Jersey Sale players back into the fold and much appreciated by Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis even if they may not impact Sunday’s game (1 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 12; click here for tickets) at Paul Brown Stadium against the Steelers.
Tight end Matt Lengel, who spent a year-and-a-half on the Bengals practice squad after they signed him undrafted out of Eastern Kentucky, and safety Demetrious Deshaun Watson Clemson Jersey Cox, a star of the Bengals’ 2017 training camp as an undrafted rookie out of Michigan State, re-surfaced in the locker room before Wednesday’s practice. Lengel took running back Thomas Rawls’ spot on the roster and Cox grabbed cornerback C.J. Goodwin’s spot on the practice squad when he bolted for Dallas.
Lewis observed Lengel, plucked by the Patriots from the practice squad during the 2016 season, is a big (6-7, 265 pounds) ) and physical blocker on the offensive line that they need with Tyler Eifert on injured reserve and Tyler Kroft’s foot in a boot. Cox, claimed by the Panthers before the Bengals could put him on the squad last year after they released him on Cut Down Day, led all Cincy rookies with ten tackles during the preseason. He spent Deshaun Watson Women’s Jersey last season in Carolina and played four games before he moved to the Arizona practice squad this season and got released last week.
“We had plans for him,” said Lewis of their thoughts before the Panthers nixed them.
With the Bengals special teams struggling, Lewis pointed to how important the kicking game is in their roster decisions and weekly active lists. He said it’s a big reason Lengel and Cox are back in the building.

Geoff I am thrilled with the start of the season. There is a lot of positives to get excited about. Andy's having a great year , the receivers look good , Mixon and Gio are doing great and the defense looks like its starting to put it together.
We can't ignore the elephant in the room which is t Customized Chiefs Jersey For Sale he O line. Since we only have the players we got would it make sense to put the best players on the field even if it isn't there best position. Moving Boling to right tackle and putting Westerman at left guard and putting Price when healthy at guard or center depending on if you like Hopkins or Redmond on the field more. This may not be a great solution but the running game is inconsistent and Andy's going to get killed in pass protection. One last thing since your close to the team is there something personnel between Westerman and the coaches as to why he doesn't get a opportunity. It certainly looks that way.

RICHARD: No question about it. A team with new offensive and defensive playbooks couldn’t have drawn it up any better to get off to a 4-1 start. How about those last three second-r Cheap Custom Kansas City Chiefs Jersey ound picks? Wide receiver Tyler Boyd, on pace for nearly 1,300 receiving yards, running back Joe Mixon, averaging 91 yards per game rushing that would give him nearly 1,300 yards the rest of the way, and rookie safety Jessie Bates, rated as one of the NFL’s top five safeties depending which profootballfocus.com category you choose.
Any time you start toying with moving guards to tackle Custom Chiefs Jerseys and moving rookie centers anywhere, time to stop yourself. I hear you. Quarterback Andy Dalton has been under enough duress the past two weeks to warrant concern. The Steelers can’t knock him around like the Falcons and Dolphins did without a heavy price. But moving people wouldn’t seem to be the answer for a fairly young unit looking to get some rhythm. I can see changing out a tackle for a tackle and guard for a guard, but that’s about it.
OK. We’ve heard from the Cincinnati Kids about Bengals-Steelers that takes place for the 98th time on Sunday (1 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 12; click here for Custom Chiefs Jerseys tickets) at Paul Brown Stadium. And just imagine if Game 100 is a Wild Card Game.
Yes, rookie defensive lineman Sam Hubbard went to a Bengals-Steelers game even before he attended Moeller High School when he went to the infamous Carson Palmer knee game. Sure, defensive tackle Adolphus Washington, in his second week with the Bengals, wasn’t there but he remembers watching “Troy Polamalu,” crash into Palmer’s knee. It wasn’t Polamalu, of course. It was Kimo von Oelhoffen. But you get the idea. The kids know and, absolutely, Northwest High School’s Preston Brown, who never went to a Bengals-Steelers game, knows he’s in one now.
“The one that everybody remembers — I'm not going to talk about it,” said Brown, who could have been talking about the Palmer Knee Game or The Fumble Game, since both were wild Wild Card Games with Pittsburgh. “I'm not going to say nothing about it, we all know the play-off game and what happened. But hopefully we can go out and get this win on Sunday.”
But how about a Bengal that actually pronounces Steelers like the natives? Men’s Nike Custom Made Kansas City Chiefs Elite Red Team Color NFL Jersey Cheap Custom Kansas City Chiefs Jersey “Stillers.” How about a Bengals wide receiver that grew up idolizing arch-villain Hines Custom Chiefs Jersey Ward instead of Chad Johnson or had the chance to pick Antonio Brown’s brain before he got to the cortex of A.J. Green?
Have you ever seen or heard of two defensive linemen scoring touchdowns in the same quarter?
“Not that I know of. Obviously those were two timely plays that helped Cheap Custom Kansas City Chiefs Jersey us tie the game, and then put the game away. As I said yesterday after the game and now after watching the tape, we have a lot of corrections to make. We didn’t execute well on offense for most of the game and we weren’t as good on third-d Custom Chiefs Jerseys own. We were a little bit better on third-down defensively, but there were some where we could’ve defended better by making tackles on third-and-long plays. That’s key. Although we had some nice runs, we’re still a tick off in the run game. We also had execution issues on special teams that we have to shore up.”
How much did the rotation on the defensive line help yesterday? It’s kind of helped in fourth quarte Custom Chiefs Jersey rs this year with the way you’ve rotated …
A quick re-check from Elias for the most sacks by an interior lineman in a season:
It looks like the record belongs to the Vikings’ Keith Millard when he had 18 during the 1989 season he started every game at defensive tackle and the Bengals’ Geno Atkins is on pace for 19 after his two on Sunday gave him six for the season.
That’s fitting. It’s the second time Monday Elias uncovered Millard. When Michael Johnson and Sam Hubbard scored touchdowns in the fourth quarter to propel the Bengals to Sunday’s 27-17 victory over Miami, Elias said it was the first time two different defensive linemen on the same team each scored a touchdown in the same quarter since Millard and Tim Newton did it during the third quarter of the Vikings’ 43-17 home victory over th Customized Chiefs Jersey For Sale e Falcons on Dec. 10, 1989.
That was after Bengals defensive coordinator Teryl Austin played safety for th Cheap Custom Kansas City Chiefs Jersey e Pitt Panthers and before he played for the Montreal Machine in the World League so, yes, that’s the first time he saw anything like that.
“I don’t remember seeing it anywhere. I don’t recall that ever happening,” Austin said Monday. “But I’m glad it happened for us.”

Defensive lineman Sam Hubbard, a Cincinnati guy and one of those cool kids Carlos Dunlap calls, “rookie veterans,” has already been to a Bengals-Steelers game at Paul Brown Stadium. But, like much of the Bengals’ current roster, it’s not exactly at the forefront of memory. After all, he was only 11 the night Cheap Custom Kansas City Chiefs Jersey Steelers defensive end Kimo von Oelhoffen fell into the knee of Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer on just the second snap of the game.
“I just remember how silent the crowd was afte Custom Chiefs Jersey r it happened. That’s the only memory I have,” Hubbard said Monday of that infamous 2005 Wild Card Customized Chiefs Jersey For Sale Game.
But with the help of young players like Hubbard, it’s the memory of that Wild Card Game 10 years later that suddenly also seems to be fleeting in the Not For Long league as the Bengals prepare for Sunday’s game (1 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 12; click here for tickets) at Paul Brown Stadium.
A total of 35 players from last Sunday’s 53-man roster weren’t here for the Brawl in the Paul when running back Jeremy Hill fu Custom Chiefs Jerseys mbled the ball on Jan. 9, 2016 with a one-point lead and 1:23 from a postseason victory. But not only that, they are a 4-1 team that has carved out three crazy-qui Men’s Nike Custom Made Kansas City Chiefs Elite Red Team Color NFL Jersey lted fourth-quarter comebacks this season with 30 players that began their NFL career after that 2015 season.
“It’s different,” said Dunlap, the veteran left end a day after his sack-strip sealed the 27-17 win over the Dolphins to set up Hubbard’s fumble-return touchdown.
