Cowboys: One Player Dead; Another Arrested As They Head to Cincy


The Cowboys organization took a big blow this morning as they prepared to make the trip to Cincinnati for Sunday’s 1:00 PM EST tilt with the Bengals.  As the team was boarding their flight, they were informed that starting NT Josh Brent had been arrested for “intoxication manslaughter” after a drunken vehicular accident early that [...]

Cook Activated; Binns Released

Today the Bengals moved to assure depth along the offensive line in the wake of their short rental of place kicker Josh Brown.  In case you missed it, Brown was signed earlier in the week to kick for Mike Nugent for one or two games after Nugent tweaked his calf muscle on his kicking leg in [...]

Bengals Add Kicker Brown; Release Faine

The Bengals will rely on newly-signed Josh Brown for kicking duties this Sunday.

With reports surfacing this week that placekicker Mike “Don’t call me Ted” Nugent tweaked a calf muscle in practice this week, the Bengals reacted quickly with the signing of former Ram and Seahawk Josh Brown.  According to the reports, including from one today from the mothership, the Bengals looked at Brown, former Raven and Redskin [...]

Update: Sanu Requires Surgery


Bengals fans have been heartened by many things over the last 3 weeks, but one of the most pleasant changes (aside from winning games) has been the ongoing development of WR Mohamed Sanu.  After scoring 4 touchdowns over the last 3 weeks, Sanu has emerged as the primary #2 receiver, and a huge target in [...]

Week Six Hit List

Another disappointing Sunday has the Bengals down-right reeling.  After losing at home to the 1-3 Dolphins, (and a week of talk about how “angry” they were about it), the Bengals proceeded to go to Cleveland and lose to an 0-5 team (on an 11-game losing streak) by 10 points. And it was ugly. Not San [...]

Week Five Hit List

The Bengals lost a game they couldn’t afford to lose.  I know that we as fans can sometimes overreact to a loss.  The Bengals made the playoffs last year at 9-7 after all, and the eventual Super Bowl Champion Giants also finished the regular season with some head-scratching losses and a 9-7 mark.  The bottom [...]

Dolphins-Bengals Inactives


As the Bengals prepare to face the Dolphins at PBS in about 30 minutes, here’s a quick glance at the inactives. The Bengals are sitting some of the usual suspects, particularly DB’s Dre Kirkpatrick and Jason Allen, both of whom are still recovering from injuries.  They’ve been down pretty much all year, so its no [...]

Week Four Hit List

hit list

  Believe it or not, 25% of the NFL regular season is already in the books, and at the quarter pole, your Bengals are an impressive 3-1.  After the utter carnage of the opener, the last three weeks have been welcomed.  Sunday’s 27-10 dismantling of the Jacksonville Jaguars looked a lot like maturation for these [...]

Five Keys: Week Four Postmortem

AJ Beats JAX

Sunday’s win in Jacksonville was the most convincing yet for the Bengals, and to me it showed a great deal of growth for the club.  Despite being down four cornerbacks and facing perhaps the best running back in football, the Bengals completely shut down the Jaguars in Jacksonville.  3-1 sure feels good. Let’s see how the [...]
