Bengals OLB Thomas Howard made a significant impact in his first season in Cincinnati, playing all 16 games (15 starts) and recording 99 tackles for the NFL's seventh-best defense from a yards-allowed perspective. In an interview with PFW at the Super Bowl, Howard praised the play of the defensive line in front of him ("so many great, young, talented guys") and the work of the Bengals' coaching staff. "They understand defense. I knew coming here I would become a better player," Howard told PFW's Eric Edholm. Howard also said that he, like his team, is capable of bigger and better things in 2012. "I definitely want to improve and be better for my team next year, because we're just scratching the surface right now of our potential. We have young Pro Bowl talent on offense — (QB) Andy (Dalton), (TE) Jermaine (Gresham), (WR) A.J. (Green). They're going to be good for a long time, and I'm excited (about) it."
