Think Different

change-ahead

By now you have read (or at least read about) the outstanding grades that the Bengals are receiving for their work in this year’s draft. They were able to find value picks that matched nicely with needs again and again. It was a wonderful thing to watch unfold. You may have noticed, however, that a [...]

This Roster Is Stacked: Defensive Line

Devon Still

Geoff Hobson recently began an article summarizing the draft with a poignant little story. Even before the Bengals started picking in the second round on Friday night, retiring Bengals director of football operations Jim Lippincott looked at the board and said to no one in particular, “Good luck cutting this team.” As much as it [...]

Welcome to the jungle Kevin Zeitler

With their second pick in the first round the Bengals tried to improve their line on the offensive side of the ball. Guard is a need for the Bengals and in picking Kevin Zeitler, the Bengals probably improves the position on day 1 this season. Being a Buckeye fan, I got to see Zeitler play [...]

WOW! What A Draft!

hit-brady

If you thought that the Bengals absolutely had to take a highly touted running back in the draft, you might not share my opinion about how well the war room did this year. But I love drafting linemen. So getting three good ones in the first three rounds is a home run in my book. [...]

Welcome to the jungle Dre Kirkpatrick

The Bengals have a need at corner, they may have solved it by adding another first rounder to their stable in the defense.  Dre Kirkpatrick looks to be an incredible athlete that can cover in man or zone and is  not afraid to hit.  What more do you want from a cornerback?  Check out some [...]

Draft recap and undrafted free agent signings

draft

Well, it may have played out differently than most could have guessed, but man, the Bengals sure did seem to have a solid draft. After Bengals fans climbed off the ledge on Thursday (looking your direction Mr. Seuberling) and realized what the Bengals accomplished, the total pull by the Bengals looks to improve this team [...]

Follow Me!

twitter_bird_follow_me

  I’m working on an oustide project for the NFL Draft so I won’t be able to post much here at WhoDeyFans, but I love what the Bengals have done so far and I’ll be offering up some occasional insight on Twitter. I look for the Bengals to address linebacker and perhaps running back, defensive [...]

Bengals Make Bold Statement On Day 2

devon-still

Positive or negative, there is sure to be plenty of reaction about the statement made by the Bengals’ war room on Day 2 of the 2012 draft. It is a statement we might expect to hear from a head coach that came up as a Defensive Coordinator: “You are not going to run on us!” In [...]

Draft Day 1: AFC North Edition

AFC-North

The Bengals did a solid, even if not glitzy, job with the first round of the draft. I also believe that, so far, they have done the best job within the AFC North. Do you agree?

Double Dip Of Draft Lovin’

CB023289

The Bengals were one of 5 teams to make two selections in the first round, which I think automatically puts them in the top 5 of the draft so far. (Even if the sports media largely ignores them.) I am inclined to give the first round a “B+” grade. Like most of you, there were [...]
