AFC North… Up For Grabs?

AJ-lurking

Come to the NFL’s version of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory and see what the Candy Man might be conjuring. Few of us called that Charlie Batch would beat the Ravens on Sunday… in one of the toughest stadiums around to get a road win. But he did. And the Steelers just may have moved the [...]

WDW Episode 85 – It’s Steelers Week!

post

Call me crazy, but I’m not sure ANY Bengals fans envisioned two straight losses to the Miami Dolphins and the Cleveland freakin Browns. It wasn’t that they lost that bothers most, it’s how they were lost. No mental toughness, no swagger, no desire. It was evident on Sunday in the 3rd quarter who wanted to [...]

WDW Episode 80 – Thud, Ouch, Doh

post

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.

Observations From Week 1 -or- Not As Bleak As It Seems

NFL: JAN 01 Ravens at Bengals

Well that sucked. [BTW, sorry to be away from you all for so long. Sometimes life gets in the way of the fun things. Thankfully I see the light at the end of that tunnel approaching for me.] It’s easy to get down about a 31-point loss. There is no denying that some things went [...]

As we wrap up this all-too-early assessment of the 2012 schedule, we have seen that there are plenty of reasons to allow a sense of optimism and pride to ease the years of frustration and angst that have defined most of the Mike Brown era. As this team flexes its new muscles, we will find [...]

An Early Schedule Breakdown: Part 1

The 2012 season is shaping up to be an exciting one for us fans. Over the next three months, we will be reminded innumerable times that the Bengals have been to the postseason in back-to-back season only once… 30 years ago. I, for one, am ready to plant the flag and assert that this mystic [...]

Who Has The Advantage In The AFC North?

bengals-ravens2

Despite going 9-7 last year and making the playoffs, the Bengals still finished third in the AFC North. But that will happen when you play in the toughest division in the AFC. At the risk of minor heresy, I was OK with a 3rd place finish for the Bengals this year. We have seen the [...]

Pilfering The AFC North

DQwell-Jackson

Nate made a comment the other day that got me thinking on a slightly different angle about free agency. There are a number of quality free agents available from AFC North teams, especially the Ravens. Which of these guys would you like hear that the Bengals are talking to, not only because it fills a [...]
