Draft Countdown: Day 22

nfl-draft-goodell

In advance of this year’s draft and my upcoming book, here’s Day 22 of the countdown.   Did you know? Former Bengals tight end Reggie Kelly, who was drafted in the second round of the draft by the Atlanta Falcons, thought he might be selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and former head coach Tony [...]

Focus On: Tight Ends

gresham

The trend toward receiving tight ends not only makes game sense, it also makes business sense. TEs cost half (or less) of what WRs cost. When a team can get a guy who is a physical mismatch at half the price of play-making WR, what’s not to like about the guy?

WDW Episode 94 – Here We Go

post

This is it. This is the THE statement game of all statement games. Beat the Steelers in THEIR house to earn a spot in the postseason. You want to be considered one of the best teams in the AFC, scratch that, the AFC NORTH you must win this game. Otherwise its another year of the [...]

WDW Episode 92 – It Wasn’t Pretty But It’s a Win

post

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 [...]

Sanu’s Mysterious Injury

sanu-td-catch

With no accompanying details, Geoff Hobson and Joe Reedy both reported on Thursday that Mohamed Sanu suffered a “foot injury” during the day’s practice, limiting his participate. We have no idea at this point if the injury will prevent him from playing on Sunday or if it could even land him on IR. Hopefully neither [...]

WDW Episode 88 – One Mo Time

The Who-Dey Weekly Podcast is a finalist for the 2nd consecutive year. They will go up against 4 ESPN produced podcasts and 1 CBS produced podcast.

Well at least the Bengals were competitive in this one. For a while there it didn’t look great. After the 105 yard kickoff return to start the second half you start to wonder if this team will EVER get it together. Then they reel off 14 points to take the lead. Peyton Manning and the [...]

WDW Episode 86 – Sometimes You Just Need to Vent

post

It’s been a rough few weeks in the Queen City. I know that as Bengals fans we have endured years, and years, and years, and years of heartbreak. We’ve all grown tired of the losing. One might think that by now our fanbase should be used to the losing. But strangely, even more this year, [...]

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 83 – Three Wins in a Row for the Bengals

The Who-Dey Weekly Podcast is a finalist for the 2nd consecutive year. They will go up against 4 ESPN produced podcasts and 1 CBS produced podcast.

It wasn’t pretty during some points but the Bengals beat the Jaguars on their home field for the second time in two years 27-10 on Sunday. The offense and defense both came out flat to start the game. The sign of a good team is how you’re able to overcome poor starts and this Bengals [...]

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.
