New Bengals OC Hue Jackson confirmed he plans to implement a more run-based offense in 2014.
Old OC Jay Gruden's 2013 offense finished 12th in the NFL in pass attempts. "We know we need to run the football," Jackson said. "And that's where it starts. ... I mean we're not going to shy away from throwing it when we need to but, I think in order to win and be a very good offensive football team, you have to be able to run the ball. And that's gonna be the starting point for us." Jan 10 - 1:27 PM

Bengals hired RBs coach Hue Jackson as offensive coordinator.

It's the right move for the Bengals, who had perhaps the league's most eligible play-caller buried on their own staff behind former OC Jay Gruden. Jackson worked wonders with the Raiders' offense in 2010-11, turning a moribund unit into a top-10 outfit. Jackson calls an aggressive game, and isn't afraid to run the ball. He puts his players in position to succeed. Jackson's brash personality is the only reason he's been stuck as a position coach since getting canned from Oakland. His hiring is good news for all the Bengals' skill players, but especially Giovani Bernard. Darren McFadden had the best two years of his career under Jackson's tutelage.

The Bengals are expected to promote running backs coach Hue Jackson to offensive coordinator.

Bengals fans should be thrilled. Jackson has churned out productive offenses in just about every stop he's been, including in 2011 when he turned the Raiders into a top-9 offense as their head coach. He projects to highlight the running game more than predecessor Jay Gruden, giving Gio Bernard a major up arrow heading into 2014. In two years under Jackson, Darren McFadden rushed 336 times for 1,774 yards (5.27 YPC) and scored 15 touchdowns. In two seasons since then, McFadden has averaged 3.29 YPC and scored eight times.
