The Bengals have just four wins on the season and are coming off a bye week.
They have been outscored by a combined 12 points on the road.
But the Bengals have the lowest winning percentage in the NFL at 30.7%.
There’s no sign of things improving.
Injuries and the lack of confidence that the Bengals are in are the biggest culprits, said Bengals GM Ryan Grigson.
“We’re really down at the bottom right now, and we know that,” Griggen said.
So, you know, we need to address those guys, because we can’t be where we are without those guys.””
We have some guys who aren’t performing as well as they could and we’re working with them every day.”
So, you know, we need to address those guys, because we can’t be where we are without those guys.
“With the bye week and the rest of the regular season in the books, Grigging has to make some tough decisions, but he’s not going to go out on a limb and start looking for help.
Instead, he’s going to sit down with the players, discuss their situation and then figure out how best to fix it.
Bengals QB Andy Dalton said he didn’t know if the team would be able to continue playing without the injured receivers.”
Yeah, I don’t know what’s going on right now,” Dalton said.”
I just don’t really know what the situation is.
I just know that we have a lot of guys who have played, and I know that I have a great group of guys that have played together.
We have a good group of receivers that can do a lot.
“I think we’re going to have to address some things in our offensive line and our running backs.”
It’s not an easy task.
The Bengals have won seven of their past eight games, including the playoffs, but Grigin says he still has a lot to work on.
And that includes his quarterback.BENCH: Bengals QB Andy the hero, RB Le’Veon Bell, WR Antonio Brown, RB Duke Johnson, QB Andy Reid talk | NFL Power Rankings: Packers, Eagles lose to Cowboys | Bengals win at Vikings, OTK, more read moreThe Bengals are also struggling at running back.
They’re allowing 5.6 yards per carry and a 2.6 average rushing average, with the running backs averaging just 4.1 yards per run.
“It’s tough,” Dalton added.
“If you look at the last couple of years, I think we’ve just got to get it going.
But that’s what Griggin has to do.”
And I think there’s a lot that needs to be worked on.”
But that’s what Griggin has to do.
He can’t afford to have the players feel bad about their situation.
He needs to address them and fix them.
That means giving the guys the respect they deserve.
“Obviously, we have some things that need to be addressed in our offense, we’re not 100 per cent there,” Grigs told reporters.
“But we have guys that are good enough that they’re capable of doing a lot.”
Bengins RB Duke Moore, who missed the past two games with an ankle injury, is not playing.
The offensive line is a mess, too.
They are allowing a league-low 5.3 yards per rush.
And their offensive line grades have been poor.
The defensive line is having issues as well.
They allow a league average of 4.3 sacks per game.
“There’s a whole lot of things going on,” Griggs said.
“[The offensive] line, we’ve got to fix, and the defensive line has got to be better.
So, I need to do my job, I can’t just sit here and tell you what’s wrong with our team, but I need our guys to get better and be better.”BENGALS ON THE ROAD: What to know ahead of Monday night’s game at Minnesota | What to watch for in Monday night game at St. Louis | How does Bengals QB Dalton compare to his past five starts?
