What’s The Plan, Mike?

I have to admit, I’m scratching my head. Not that being confused by Mike Brown’s tactics is anything new. About a month ago we got the all-too-predictable warning from Geoff Hobson that the Bengals would focus first on re-signing their own guys in free agency. This was certainly in part an effort by MB to [...]

WDF Favorite Bengal Bracket

Every (touchdown) day he was shufflin...

I had an idea today (which is always dangerous) and thought I’d put the wheels in motion.

Reggie Kelly on the Bengals, Free Agency, and Food

Kelly was an easy guy to root for during his time in Cincinnati.

I spoke with former Bengal Reggie Kelly, one of the nicest NFL players you could ever meet, for my upcoming book and asked him about a number of football-related topics, including our beloved Bengals.

And before you answer, consider this. Last season, which was the most Bush has played in his four years, he [...]

TAG!!

The free agent market will begin to take shape this weekend as teams make and announce their decisions on who to pull off of the market with their franchise tag. The Bengals have some candidates for the franchise tag. I know I’m going to be in the minority on this one, but I think the [...]

‘The Grin’ Is Gone!!

There are a number of professional sports players who irritate me like sand in the swim trunks. Tom Brady is chief among them. This usually happens with great players who play for teams I happen to dislike. But while plenty of guys irritate me, there are very few professional sports players that I genuinely hate. Hines [...]
