Former Bengals wide receiver and current NFL analyst Chris Collinsworth has accepted a position as an unpaid wide receivers coach in northern Kentucky at Highlands High school where his son Jac plays.

The 2011 Bengals: Guards

On this Memorial Day, I want to take a moment to say thank you to the men and women protecting our freedom all over the world, and most especially my nephew Mark Bates, a Bengals fan stationed in Iraq. We miss you Mark, stay safe… Today, I will continue my position by position review of […]

The 2011 Bengals: Tackles

This offseason is about as enjoyable as the Akili Smith era, but with an expanded offseason at least we can hold out hope for the future that much longer.

Zac Jackson from FoxSportsOhio provided his five most important Bengals. Jackson gave more in-depth explanations for each of his picks, but for simplicity sake, I’ll just give you the list: 5. A.J. Green 4. Carlos Dunlap 3. Rey Maualuga 2. Leon Hall 1. Carson Palmer   I’m okay with most of this list, but I […]
