AFC Notes: Bengals, Browns, Chargers



Instead of installing their new offense by position, the Bengals are installing HC Zac Taylor‘s system as a complete offensive unit. 

“A lot of times the quarterbacks get all that information, you know why you’re calling it, you know what you want it in,” Bengals QB Andy Dalton said via Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer. “But now everyone’s getting that information. It makes it easier for guys to be on the same page, because they know why [a play] is called. That’s why it’s been really good.”

While there will be a lot of similarities to the Rams offense Taylor worked in, such as less shotgun and more play action under center, the Bengals won’t look like a carbon copy of the Rams. 

“Obviously, I’m not Jared and their receivers aren’t our guys,” Dalton said. “We do feel like we’ve got a really talented back like Todd Gurley, with Joe, and a guy that can spill ’em like Gio. It’s going to be tailored to fit us. The system’s not just the system. The system is built around our players, around our guys. It’s all set up for us to play fast and go score.”
