Film Study: Defense, Dalton, and Boling

Plaxico Burress beat the Bengals backups, not their starters.

  A few quick thoughts after a detailed review of the Bengals/Jets game: *I’m optimistic about the defense. The unit was continually put in bad situations and performed rather well. The defensive line showed some good penetration, although I’d like to see more speed off the edge (hopefully, Carlos Dunlap can provide that when he [...]

Carson Palmer to return to the Bengals?

Carson-Palmer

So the speculation now (thanks to an article on Profootballtalk.com) is that because Carson has not filed retirement papers, he may return to the Bengals. Speculation also states this could be a strategic move by Palmer to force the hand of Mike Brown to trade or release him. “The end game for both sides remains [...]

Taylor-ed Fit?

I think Mays is a good match with Mike Zimmer and the Bengals defense.

Call me crazy, but I like the fit of Taylor Mays in the Bengals defense. As I told a friend earlier tonight, he’s a younger, faster version of Roy Williams and Williams performed pretty well (when healthy) in Mike Zimmer’s defense. The scouting reports on Mays have been recycled and regurgitated many times by now. [...]

Bengals Getting Blitzkrieged

Things can only get better if you start the season with the bags on, right?

Following the Bengals poor performances in their first two preseason games, the national media has begun teeing off. Cincinnati is once again getting attacked from every angle. Colin Cowherd called them a mess today. NFL Radio’s Adam Schein called them the single worst franchise in the league right now. Many others are following suit, predicting [...]

Productive Players Not Playing: What Gives?

Why isn't this guy getting a chance to start over Livings & Smith?

As the Bengals reshape their roster (and take their lumps in the process) with a stockpile of young and hungry talent, their bitter refusal to re-sign and play productive role players continues to perplex me. I completely understand the need to give rookies like Andy Dalton and A.J. Green every opportunity to succeed.  I am [...]

Bengals trade 49ers for Taylor Mays

Taylor Mays may be the best pick we could make with our 2013 7th rounder .

It looks like Mike Brown decided to part with his first draft pick since 2008 (probably one picked up from New England in the trade for OchoCinco). What did he get for this undisclosed pick? A safety named Taylor Mays from the 49ers. The same Taylor Mays that clocked a 4.25 40 yd dash in [...]

Panic Button

If I know Bengals fans, then there is a small but vocal minority of fans beginning to red-line into thermo-emotional meltdown, ready to pounce on the Panic button and pulverize it. Odds are decent that you bumped into one of those guys since 7:20 Sunday evening who was howling like a siren. “This team is [...]

What I did and didn’t like Bengals VS Jets

Andre Caldwell, Jim Leonhard

Week two of the preseason is in the books and once again the Bengals took an ass kicking. Honestly, there was not much to like in this game. There really was just one outstanding play and that was from the kicking game. However, here is my rundown. What I Liked: – Huber can punt the [...]
