Who do we like this weekend in the big game?

Super Bowl: Sunday Feb 3 6:30pm The SuperBowl this year (also known as the Harbaugh Bowl) is this Sunday. I believe there are reasons that as a Bengal fan you could root for or against either team. Usually, because the Bengals are not in the big game, I root for a good game. However, I [...]

Focus On: Running Backs

BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Bart Scott

This is a position that must be addressed high in the draft. Excessive pressure is being put on Andy Dalton because the running game is often stagnant. The Bengals looked their best in the 3-games stretch where BJGE had consecutive 100-yard games. That needs to be the rule, not the noteworthy occurrence.

Focus On: Cornerbacks

Sometimes in sports, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. I would say that was the case with the Bengals’ corners this year. Largely a group of cast-offs from other teams, the team ended up ranked 7th in passing defense for the season. Who would have guessed that to start the season?

Focus On: Tight Ends

The trend toward receiving tight ends not only makes game sense, it also makes business sense. TEs cost half (or less) of what WRs cost. When a team can get a guy who is a physical mismatch at half the price of play-making WR, what’s not to like about the guy?

Focus On: Quarterbacks

There will be plenty of angst from certain quadrants of Bengals Nation in regards to Andy Dalton over the next 6 months. The pessimists among us are plentiful and proud. But are they right?

Who do we like this weekend in the playoffs

Ok, so the Bengals are out. However, NFL football is still going on and like us, most of you will be watching. Who do you root for? Personally I am torn. Part of me wants to root for the Ravens. My reasoning is that they are a division opponent and whats good for the division [...]

WDW Episode 96 – 2012 Season Wrap Up

post

2012 was a great year to be a Bengals fan! They made the playoffs in back to back years for the first time in 30 years. That’s amazing. The Bengals are an up and coming team STILL and they play in a division where the rest of the players are turning into grumpy old men. [...]

Focus On: Wide Receivers

It’s one year later, and the question remains the same: who is the #2 receiver? That fact that we could list at least three names is evidence that there still isn’t one. This isn’t the only question facing the offense this off-season, but failing to find a good answer will continue the inconsistency in the [...]

Focus On: Linebackers

This is the first in a series of articles looking through each of the position groups with an eye toward free agency. And why not begin with one of the lightning rods for this team?

Bengals Unrestricted Free Agents Review

Michael Johnson should be Cincinnati's number 1 free agent target

Well, we all would have liked the season to have extended a bit further than it did, but the positives to take away from the 2012 campaign are many.  First, the team broke down several long-standing barriers on the way to back-to-back playoff appearances.  Secondly, the young up-and-coming stars got another season of experience under [...]
