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 [...]

Around The Division

Having just a little bit of time today for a post, I decided to highlight some news from around the division that may (or may not) have escaped your notice.

Could Mike Wallace Be This Year’s DeSean Jackson?

Money makes the world go ’round, right? But sometimes money makes the football stop going ’round. There could be trouble afoot in the Steel City. Money, in the form of a restricted free agent tender offer, has pitted the cash-strapped Steelers franchise against its very productive young receiver, Mike Wallace, who clearly does not want [...]

As we wrap up this all-too-early assessment of the 2012 schedule, we have seen that there are plenty of reasons to allow a sense of optimism and pride to ease the years of frustration and angst that have defined most of the Mike Brown era. As this team flexes its new muscles, we will find [...]

An Early Schedule Breakdown: Part 2

Guessing the schedule during the offseason is a dicey proposition, so I am not trying to call wins and losses here. Instead, I am pointing out interesting factors to the game based on how teams did last year, how they approached free agency and the draft, and how they might square off against each other.

A Closer Look At The Steelers

My look at the Browns last week raised a cacophony of howling and hissing from Browns fans. Today I am really going to poke the beehive by taking a look at the Steelers, because they aren’t going to like what I have to say at all. But if they are honest with themselves, they know [...]

Who Has The Advantage In The AFC North?

bengals-ravens2

Despite going 9-7 last year and making the playoffs, the Bengals still finished third in the AFC North. But that will happen when you play in the toughest division in the AFC. At the risk of minor heresy, I was OK with a 3rd place finish for the Bengals this year. We have seen the [...]

Pilfering The AFC North

DQwell-Jackson

Nate made a comment the other day that got me thinking on a slightly different angle about free agency. There are a number of quality free agents available from AFC North teams, especially the Ravens. Which of these guys would you like hear that the Bengals are talking to, not only because it fills a [...]
