Draft Strategy: Secondary


When is the last time you can remember the Bengals having a formidable secondary? Not just good corners (Joseph/Hall), but an entire secondary? It’s been a while. You might cite the ’05 team that generated turnovers at a prolific rate, but I could also argue that their steep decline in ’06 indicated that they were [...]

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?

WDW Episode 92 – It Wasn’t Pretty But It’s a Win


Well it wasn’t pretty, but a win is a win and that’s all that matters at this time of year. The Bengals historically have not played well on the West Coast but to win in SD despite not having your best day on offense is a huge step for this team. Have to give it [...]

WDW Episode 89 – A Giant Win for the Bengals Hopes

The Who-Dey Weekly Podcast is a finalist for the 2nd consecutive year. They will go up against 4 ESPN produced podcasts and 1 CBS produced podcast.

The Bengals got a huge boost this weekend with a huge or shall we say, GIANT, win over the G-Men 31-13 Sunday at PBS. The tone was set early as Andy “Red” Dalton ended the game with an early strike to AJ Green to go up 7-0. Guess he had a pretty good idea about [...]

Bengals Dress Just Three Corners for Jags


In a troubling, if not unexpected, development, the Bengals will dress just three true cornerbacks for today’s game in Jacksonville.  Down are starters Leon Hall and Nate Clements, along with back-up Jason Allen and first round pick Dre Kirkpatrick.  Kirkpatrick hasn’t seen the field yet this year, and Allen has played only a handful of [...]

WDW Episode 82 – Did the Bengals Borrow Another Team’s Playbook?


The Bengals lined up on the first play of the game, in the Wildcat? Maybe we should call that the Bengal formation instead? Did the Bengals playbook get left back at PBS on Sunday? Wildcat? A fake field goal? Who are these Bengals? Either way, it was a welcomed sight for some of us! Many [...]

WDW Episode 76 – Injuries Mar Bengals Win


We welcome Mr. Timm Bates back to the program this week. Timm was fortunate enough to get some good seats at last Friday night’s preseason opener vs the Jets and tells us a bit about his experience.

WDW Episode 74 – We’ve Gone International


This week we’ve got a special guest joining us from the United Kingdom, he’s London’s #1 Bengals fan, Mike Smith!

Question Marks vs Weaknesses


The natural tendency for most people — analysts, fans and rivals alike — is to assume that any question mark about a team is by definition a weakness. If a player or position group is not considered a strength, then he/they must be a weakness, right? Not necessarily. It is understandable to want to see [...]

Relax! Part Two: CB

relaxing tiger

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 [...]
