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. [...]

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 [...]

Week Three Hit List

hit list

I hope you will forgive me as I know I’m a little late with this week’s hit list (by 3 days).  My “regular” job sometimes requires me to travel to far-off exotic lands where people speak in strange tongues and practice odd customs.  This week it was New Jersey.  Anyway, the Bengals won a very strange [...]

WDW Episode 82 – Did the Bengals Borrow Another Team’s Playbook?

post

The Bengals lined up on the first play of the game, in the Wildcat? Maybe we should call that the Bengal formation instead? Did the Bengals playbook get left back at PBS on Sunday? Wildcat? A fake field goal? Who are these Bengals? Either way, it was a welcomed sight for some of us! Many [...]

Disconnected defense

Michael Johnson sacks Robert Griffin III in Bengals win

Michael Johnson, Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap base an outstanding defensive front. There are going to be big numbers from these guys as they wreck pockets and hurry quarterbacks. Sure, there were some containment issues during the Redskins game where the defensive ends were crashing when they should have been maintaining the edge. All in [...]

post

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 [...]

Bengals D: What a Rush!

Dunlap, Atkins, Johnson, and Lawson? Ohhhh...What a rush!

The Bengals may have flaws in several places, but there’s one thing fans should be excited about – the pass rush. Carlos Dunlap flourished in the second half of last season, finishing his rookie year with 9.5 sacks overall. Defensive tackle Geno Atkins also had a solid rookie year, recording three sacks and a number [...]

In the weeks since the completion of the NFL draft, I have been looking at the various position groups in an effort to shed light on where the team currently stands with their personnel and to foreshadow needed moves once free agency begins. Today, I focus on the linebackers. Rey Maualuga will have a lot [...]
