Why I get tired of the same old Bengals bashing

If you follow me on Twitter @WhoDeyFans you may have seen my arguments last night with the WhoDeyRevolution and some of their loyal followers. You see last night I just got tired of hearing the same old Bengal bashing. That site, and more importantly, their followers have turned into something that does nothing but bash […]

Round 1: Not Flashy But Solid

Adding Dre Kirkpatrick and Kevin Zeitler to the Bengals’ family is not going to win a lot of headlines. They picked too low to grab one of the true elite players, and the media is never going to gush over a guard. But winning the news cycle and winning NFL games are not the same […]

First Round Prognostications

We’ve finally made it!  After 3 full months of constant buzz, the 2012 NFL Draft is here.  Thank God.  Tonight we have round one, where the theoretically best 32 players will get picked.  From this group will come some busts, posers and a few kids with freakish ability but not ready for the spotlight.  It’ll […]

Draft Day Prognostication

Draft Day is finally here! In a few hours we will finally meet the newest class of Bengals, beginning tonight with two guys we hope to see be significant contributors for years to come. But before then, let’s take one more stab at who those guys might be.

Wild prediction: something crazy will happen on Thursday in the first round of the draft. There is no consensus past the top 6 players, so draft day insanity will being a couple of guys sliding down to the awaiting Bengals at #17. With the Bengals in a good position to draft the best player available, […]

It’s Draft Week Baby!

My gift to you, to help get you in the spirit of draft week! WHODEY!!!

Sortin’ Through The Pieces: AFC North

Before we complete this series leading up to the draft, it is worth a peak at the picks that the other teams in the division and where their picks are scheduled. Know your enemy!

Sortin’ Through The Pieces: Picks

The NFL Draft is less than a week away, and the Bengals find themselves in a better position than normal. No top 10 picks. Few gaping holes in the roster. There is a lot of flexibility in this draft, which means multiple strategies could be in play, whether in terms of picks or trades.

Sortin’ Through The Pieces: Defense

The Bengals made a number of free agent additions to the defense over the past month, but gauging how much better they have made themselves in the process is difficult. They added four guys who were drafted in the first round but dide not make the impact that was expected of them. If two of […]
