Walker: Why Carson Should be Traded

ESPN.com’s James Walker offers up seven reasons why the Bengals should make the move. From a distance, it seems like a no-brainer. Draft picks are better than nothing and Palmer (supposedly) insists he’s not playing if he doesn’t get traded. But I’ll always return to what gives the Bengals the best chance to win now. [...]

I Might Be Insane: Terrelle Pryor Edition

Terrelle Pryor is not a Cincinnati Bengal. Hopefully, he never will be. But believe this, if the NFL has a supplemental draft, and Pryor enters it, someone will take a chance on him. And I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s at quarterback. But here’s what might really make me nuts – I think Pryor could [...]

Live Action Role Playing: You’re Carson Palmer

It’s a simple exercise and a simple question. You are Carson Palmer. Why do you want out? Now, allow me to don my chain mail helmet and take up my Styrofoam sword and give you my best answer. (The following is a hack blogger’s best (which is still really bad) attempt at duplicating someone else’s [...]

AFC North QB Rankings

  James Walker ranks the big-name AFC North quarterbacks, placing Carson Palmer at No. 3 and Andy Dalton at No. 5. I’m not sure Joe Flacco (No. 2) is better than Palmer to be honest, partially because I don’t think Palmer was ever in a great position to suceed. Could anyone ever really shine in [...]

Big Whit = Big Leader

In the extended (and perhaps permanent) absence of Carson Palmer, Bengals left tackle Andrew Whitworth is filling the leadership void. The latest proof arrived yesterday, with word that Whitworth and defensive tackle Domata Peko are planning a team workout for next week in Cincinnati. According to Joe Reedy, Whitworth and Peko, essentially the team’s biggest [...]

Big Ben Roethlisberger is tying the knot

  This one was to unbelievable to not share with you all.  It is no secret my feelings for the douchebag QB of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Ben Roethlisberger. Now it appears like the good Christian kid he is, he is going to settle down and get married. Good for Ben, he found a girl that [...]

State of the Bengals in the offseason

There really is no news about the Bengals.  As many of the sports fans in Cincinnati have shifted their focus to the Red hot Reds it is important to follow the things that will affect the Bengals the most.   1. Who is going to play Qb? 2. When will the lockout end?   The [...]

The arrogance of the NFL

Ok fans, the NFL and (former) NFLPA has spoken and they said loud and clear: YOU DON’T MATTER.     I am not going to dig too deep into the issues, we all know what is going on. The base line of the whole thing is that these two groups feel that they are so [...]

NFLPA files for decertification in Minnesota

Per twitter, it seems the players have filed for decertification.  What does this mean in lay terms? Really, it is posturing so that the players union as a group can not be locked out by the owners.   I have said many times, the fans are the only real losers in this battle.  So now, [...]
