Draft Strategy: Offensive Line

Cleveland Browns v Cincinnati Bengals

The offensive line is not slated for an overhaul like the running backs or linebackers, and it isn’t in need of a significant addition like safety or receiver. But there is still a significant move to be made: re-signing Andre Smith. If the front office cannot get that deal done, then there will be another [...]

Singing The Offensive Blues

How often do you hear it said? “Quarterbacks get too much of the credit for wins and too much of the blame for losses.” No matter how often guy like Cris Collinsworth remind us, we are still eager to heap the praise and the criticism on one guy.

It only took one pass play for the tone to be set Sunday. Palmer’s first dropback, BOOM, Geno Atkins threw him to the ground. At that point we ALL knew what kind of day it was going to be for Mr. Quitter himself. Speaking of quitting, did you see that Palmer’s Raider teammate Rolando McClain [...]

There will be at least four new starters from last year, as well as new regular role players. And at every [...]

Run Game Improvements Trump Number Two Receiver Question

  It seems that the most interesting and entertaining debate in Bengal circles revolves around the opening for a number two receiver.  The debate has been raging for weeks now, with fans making cases for vets like Brandon Tate and Armon Binns, or pushing the virtues of rookies Mohammed Sanu and Marvin Jones. It’ll make [...]

WDW Episode 65 – Recapping the Bengals Draft

What a draft by the Cincinnati Bengals! By most accounts from some of the bigger “draft experts” around the league, the Bengals had one of, IF NOT, the best drafts in all of football. Timm couldn’t make it this week so filling in for us is Sean O’Donnell from StripeHype.com and helping us break down [...]

Welcome to the jungle Kevin Zeitler

With their second pick in the first round the Bengals tried to improve their line on the offensive side of the ball. Guard is a need for the Bengals and in picking Kevin Zeitler, the Bengals probably improves the position on day 1 this season. Being a Buckeye fan, I got to see Zeitler play [...]
