When is the last time you can remember the Bengals having a formidable secondary? Not just good corners (Joseph/Hall), but an entire secondary? It’s been a while. You might cite the ’05 team that generated turnovers at a prolific rate, but I could also argue that their steep decline in ’06 indicated that they were […]
Sometimes in sports, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. I would say that was the case with the Bengals’ corners this year. Largely a group of cast-offs from other teams, the team ended up ranked 7th in passing defense for the season. Who would have guessed that to start the season?
Well it wasn’t pretty, but a win is a win and that’s all that matters at this time of year. The Bengals historically have not played well on the West Coast but to win in SD despite not having your best day on offense is a huge step for this team. Have to give it […]
The Bengals got a huge boost this weekend with a huge or shall we say, GIANT, win over the G-Men 31-13 Sunday at PBS. The tone was set early as Andy “Red” Dalton ended the game with an early strike to AJ Green to go up 7-0. Guess he had a pretty good idea about […]
Marvin Lewis hinted before the bye week that Dre Kirkpatrick could see the field after the bye week. I have no doubt he is physically able to play. A source who has talked with the DB confirmed that Dre is in fact healthy and questions himself why he has not been on the field. Knowing […]
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 […]
In a troubling, if not unexpected, development, the Bengals will dress just three true cornerbacks for today’s game in Jacksonville. Down are starters Leon Hall and Nate Clements, along with back-up Jason Allen and first round pick Dre Kirkpatrick. Kirkpatrick hasn’t seen the field yet this year, and Allen has played only a handful of […]
This week we’ve got a special guest joining us from the United Kingdom, he’s London’s #1 Bengals fan, Mike Smith!
The long offseason is finally over, Training Camp is here! The Bengals report to camp tomorrow with their first practice Friday.
The natural tendency for most people — analysts, fans and rivals alike — is to assume that any question mark about a team is by definition a weakness. If a player or position group is not considered a strength, then he/they must be a weakness, right? Not necessarily. It is understandable to want to see […]
