Trade for MJD? I Doubt It.

MJD

When Jones-Drew’s agent announced that the outstanding running back is open to being traded, you could almost hear the collective eyebrows of the Bengals fans everywhere raise a bit, eyes fixed on empty space as we considered the immensity of such a possibility. He would immediately make the Bengals the favorites to win the AFC [...]

Questions From Pre-Season Game #2

BENGALS-FALCONS

The Bengals faced probably their toughest test of the preseason against an Atlanta Falcons team that is going to be pretty good this year. Really good, actually. Fortunately, this game brought fewer injuries, with both Gresham and Burfict being sat more for precautionary reasons than anything else. Click to the jump to choose one or [...]

Having just a little bit of time today for a post, I decided to highlight some news from around the division that may (or may not) have escaped your notice.

A Late Analysis

NFL: Preseason-New York Jets at Cincinnati Bengals

The family’s summer vacation (and the obligatory craziness in prepping for it) has taken me away from you all for a few weeks, and has caused me to be late in bringing my thoughts about the preseason game versus the Jets last week. But fear not! I am back to deliver my unique perspective on [...]

Guessing the schedule during the offseason is a dicey proposition, so I am not trying to call wins and losses here. Instead, I am pointing out interesting factors to the game based on how teams did last year, how they approached free agency and the draft, and how they might square off against each other.

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 [...]

I can’t believe that a podcast we started nearly 3 years ago has grown to become the awesome Bengals community that it is today! I couldn’t be more thankful for all of our fans and I certainly appreciate you downloading the show each and every week. Here’s to a great 2012 season for the Bengals [...]

dalton-throw

Recently I was the target of all the venom that Cleveland Browns fans could muster because I said that taking Brandon Weeden at #22 was a terrible pick. Some of that venom was toxic enough to set the Cuyahoga River on fire… again. A few of them made interesting comments, while others proved that Cleveland [...]
