Free Agency Around The AFCN [UPDATE 2]

ellerbe59

For the fans of teams like the Seahawks and the Broncos, the start of free agency has been a double-scoop of football goodness. For us Bengals fans, however, it has been about as appetizing as a rice cake with a side of celery. Healthy, disciplined, and boring. Let’s make ourselves feel better by looking around [...]

WDW Episode 96 – 2012 Season Wrap Up

post

2012 was a great year to be a Bengals fan! They made the playoffs in back to back years for the first time in 30 years. That’s amazing. The Bengals are an up and coming team STILL and they play in a division where the rest of the players are turning into grumpy old men. [...]

Starting Up Free Agency Talk

With no further games to discuss for the next seven months, and with John Clayton releasing the list of salary cap space yesterday, it is time to firing up the discussions about free agency.

Josh Cribbs Makes My Point

You may not like hearing this, but the Cleveland Browns are inching their way toward being good again. Well, toward being somewhat competitive again. Sorry, I got a little bit ahead of myself there for a second. Browns fans won’t like hearing this, either. I’ve been saying for a few years now, and I’ll keep [...]

Building Slow Is Building Best

DALTON-GREEN-2

The hiring of Marvin Lewis marked the end of the Lost Decade. In the wake of an extended period of football futility, most of Lewis’ tenure as head coach has been spent trying to steady a team that has lurched and backfired and stalled like a stick-shift AMC Pacer with a 16-year-old behind the wheel.

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 [...]

From across the pond, part 2

Oh dear it appears I spoke too soon For those of you who read last weeks post, I confidently predicted that the Bengals could beat up the Dolphins and the Bengals days of losing to teams with inferior records were over. How wrong was I? And with a game in Cleveland this Sunday there is a [...]

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 [...]

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.

Cleveland, You Make Me Laugh

Weeden-Tarped-By-Flag

I knew it would come. I just didn’t expect it to happen this fast. Four months ago I was upbraided by a throng of BoneHeads (Cleveland’s version of a cheese head) for questioning the Browns’ receivers and the wisdom of dumping yet another QB. I was colorfully informed that the sum total of all of [...]
