Week Three Hit List

hit list

I hope you will forgive me as I know I’m a little late with this week’s hit list (by 3 days).  My “regular” job sometimes requires me to travel to far-off exotic lands where people speak in strange tongues and practice odd customs.  This week it was New Jersey.  Anyway, the Bengals won a very strange [...]

Five Keys: Week Three Postmortem

RGIII had a tougher time than expected with the Bengal front seven

  No matter how it may be achieved, victory in the NFL is hard to come by, and each one is sweet.  Such was the case last Sunday as our Queen City Cats, 3.5 point underdogs, went into FedEx field with its 80,000 screaming RGIII fanatics.  The 38-31 triumph was a heck of a game [...]

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

post

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 81 – You Call That Defense?

post

Uh, what the hell is going on out there defense? 430 yards to the Ravens, OK. But 439 to the Browns? Are you for real? Where is the defensive line? Where are the LB’s? You call that a secondary? How you guys managed to win this game is beyond me, oh yeah our pal Adam [...]

Well, despite the ongoing defensive deficiencies (and boy are there), the Bengals did manage to win the game on Sunday, and that feels a heck of a lot better than last week. Still, there are glaring problems on the defense.  Ironically, the defense was supposed to carry the offense, but Sunday it was the offense [...]

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.

Five Keys: Week One Postmortem

flacco

Yesterday I provided my five keys to an upset Bengals win in Baltimore.  Here’s how they did on each:  1.  Score First:  Didn’t Happen I opined that the best way to keep the crowd subdued was to get an early lead—even if only 3 points, and that going down by 2 scores or more would [...]

Five Keys to an Opening Win

Ravens Bengals

The waiting is finally over!  Tonight the Bengals begin their 2012 journey on Monday Night Football from the very unfriendly confines of M&T Stadium in Baltimore. The Bengals couldn’t have (and probably wouldn’t have) asked for a more challenging way to open the season.  Baltimore hasn’t lost a regular season home game since 2009, and [...]

WDW Episode 79 – Regular Season Predictions

post

It’s finally here! The Regular Season is upon us! Can you believe it we’re just 5 days from the Bengals kicking off their 2012 season in Baltimore.

WDW Episode 78 – Gotta Love the Internet

post

The Bengals lost more than just a game last week vs the Packers as it looks like starting center Kyle Cook is going to miss some extended time. Another big blow to an offensive line already without one starter. The Bengals wrap up their preseason this Thursday night in Indianapolis against Andrew Luck and the [...]
