A Failure To Communicate

Frustration with the lack of activity from the Bengals is reaching a level I haven't seen since Mike Brown's press conference following the 2010 season announcing Marvin Lewis' new contract. Fans see the mountain of cash that the Bengals are sitting on (the tallest in the league) then look at the short list of transactions made by the team while … [Read More...]

Free Agency Around The AFCN [UPDATE 2]

For the fans of teams like the Seahawks and the Broncos, the start of free agency has been a double-scoop of football goodness.

Right On Target: Little Free Agent News

In the first few days of free agency, the Bengals are generally about as active as a university library on a Friday night. This year is shaping up no differently.

High Priced FAs Are A Mixed Bag

Every year we build our free agent "Wish List" that will turn a weakness into a strength in one fell swoop. Every year the front office at PBS marks those names off of their list, replacing them with guys who elicit groans, tirades, or questions ("Hey Mike, who the **** is...?") Free agency is built for the big splash, the daring move, the lauded … [Read More...]

Options At Backup Quarterback

Despite the complaints of a small (but vocal) minority of fans, Andy Dalton will undoubtedly be the starting quarterback in 2013.
