Do You Believe In Marvin?

BENGALS

This is a simple but an important question. Marvin Lewis is going into his 10th season as head coach of the Bengals. Only two other coaches — Bill Belichick and Andy Reid — held their current job when he became the HC in 2003. In fact, only 7 current head coaches have more experience than [...]

Relax! Part Two: CB

Yesterday I addressed  the incessant hand-wringing in Who Dey-ville regarding the second starting WR position.  Today, I’ll look at another area that seems to get a lot of publicity from fans and “experts” alike:  The cornerbacks. It seems this area of the team is concerning to the overpaid and blowhard “pundits,” and with all due [...]

Looking Glass Game: Andrew Whitworth

I have been asking you to take a peak through your personal looking glass and tell me where you think some of the current anchors of the Bengals will ultimately rank among the pantheon of Bengals past once they hang up their cleats. It has been fun to consider the many candidates who would make [...]

Wow did this week’s show get out of control. Most of you are probably thinking, “well it’s about time!”. I hope you enjoy this week’s show because it was a lot of fun to record!

In Defense of Brandon Tate

Brandon Tate is creating a stir as the Bengals current No. 2 receiver

It seems that Brandon Tate is something of a hot button in Who Dey Nation. Some people seem to hate him and think he may not even make the roster this year. Others seem to recognize his contributions to special teams, where he was a pretty productive returner, although prone to some poor decisions. I [...]

Relax-Part One: WR2

As we head to training camp (roughly a month away at this point-thank God!), there are two positions that seem to be the cause of a lot of fretting and nail-biting that I just don’t understand. WR2 and CB. Now, I whole-heartedly agree that these two positions are of huge importance to the team’s chances [...]

Back from the Dead: Random Thoughts

It's time to re-emerge just in time for training camp.

My apologies for an extended absence prompted by the obligations of adult life and the slower cycle of Bengals news. But it’s time to break back into the black and orange – and I plan to do so in rapid-fire fashion. Here are a few things I’ve been thinking about our beloved Bengals: -When’s the [...]

James Urban’s Shoes

James Urban, the Bengals’ wide receivers coach, has either the most fun or the most frustrating job of all the position coaches. The potential warehoused in the 12 players entrusted to his care is pretty amazing. Unfortunately, most of that potential has been minimally tested or completely untested at the pro level, leaving him and [...]

Looking Glass Game: Leon Hall

Today I want to consider the career trajectory of a more established player, Leon Hall. I was going to limit this series to younger players, and Hall is going into his 6th year in the league. But I kept coming back to Leon because of the diversity of opinion about him. Some consider him a [...]

WDW Episode 69 – Can I Interject?

post

Are you concerned that Brandon Tate is still being strongly considered to be the #2 wideout for the Bengals this fall? From all reports it sounds like Tate is quickly becoming a threat on offense. Special thanks to Stephen Reid of BengalsNorth.com and the Host of The Batereid Show Podcast for guest hosting this week. [...]
