Every year we build our free agent “Wish List” that will turn a weakness into a strength in one fell swoop. Every year the front office at PBS marks those names off of their list, replacing them with guys who elicit groans, tirades, or questions (“Hey Mike, who the **** is…?”) Free agency is built […]
The offensive line is not slated for an overhaul like the running backs or linebackers, and it isn’t in need of a significant addition like safety or receiver. But there is still a significant move to be made: re-signing Andre Smith. If the front office cannot get that deal done, then there will be another […]
How often do you hear it said? “Quarterbacks get too much of the credit for wins and too much of the blame for losses.” No matter how often guy like Cris Collinsworth remind us, we are still eager to heap the praise and the criticism on one guy.
Well, who saw that coming? The Bengals took one on the chin, and then they took it on the chin once more in Baltimore as the Ravens put the smackdown on us 44-13.
Here are the inactive lists for today’s game: Texans – WR Andre Johnson, QB Jeff Garcia, CB Brandon Harris, OG Thomas Austin, OT Andrew Gardner, TE Garrett Graham, and DE Tim Bulman Bengals – LB Dontay Moch, S Robert Sands, RB Brian Leonard, OL Clint Boling, RT Andre Smith, WR Ryan Whalen, and DE Carlos […]
Earlier in the year the Bengals organization said that would not pick Andre Smith’s contract option; after not allowing a sack against one of the leagues best pass rushers (Mathis), do you think we should pick up his contract option? No question Andre Smith is a better player this season than any other time. After […]
After the shebacle in Detroit, it’s pretty apparent that the Bengals offensive line – and especially their pass protection – need some significant improvement. The good news is, there’s a solution available. The bad news is, the team is unlikely to use it. Andre Smith, who’s currently listed as the starting right tackle, would make […]
The 2011 Bengals may not have much in the eyes of experts. They’re undergoing transition at several key positions. The former franchise quarterback would rather retire than take another snap. The team’s most prolific receiver in recent memory has been traded for next to nothing. And one of their most talented defenders left for Houston […]
Can you believe the Bengals offensive line might be the fifth-best in the entire league? According to the folks at ProFootballFocus, they are. Even though the Bengals as a team tanked in 2010, PFF believes the line graded out rather well. Maybe they’re better than I believe, but there are still plenty of areas for […]
Word is starting to make its way around the interwebs that the Bengals’ more recent first round pick named A. Smith is working to shed some pounds and perhaps shed the title of “bust”. Check out this quote from Andrew Whitworth,
