Concussions As A Game Plan

helmet-to-helmet

Players putting a bounty on an opposing player is nothing new in the NFL. It isn’t “supposed” to happen, but plenty of former players over the years have admitted that it is done. So it is very little surprise that a team would target a player with a history of concussions for a repeat injury. [...]

Ravens Illustrate Flaws In Bengals’ Game

o-line

As I watched the Ravens and the Bengals on Sunday, I saw two teams that looked more similar than different. In what was supposed to be the first of a couple of rebuilding years for the Bengals, that was very encouraging for their future. The Bengals are moving in the right direction and are laying [...]

Preview: Ravens @ Bengals

With the Bengals playing a win-and-you’re-in game against the Ravens, I am impressed with the front office’s BOGO promotion to try to sell out the stadium for the second time this year.

On The Clock: Picks 25 – 26

My mock draft is in the home stretch, as teams picking now did something this year that the Bengals haven’t done for over two decades; win a playoff game. If you needed a reason to be ready for a QB change, that is a pretty compelling argument in itself. On the clock are picks 25 [...]

Is Palmer Retirement That Bad for Bengals?

I realize this may not be the most popular position to take, however I’ve decided to move on with Carson Palmer and so should the Bengals. I’d certainly understand the fan base’s disappointment had Carson continually put up numbers like he did in 2005. Let’s face it, that ship sailed as soon as Kimo took [...]
