Draft Strategy: Linebackers

Newman-Burfict

The linebacker group is another position that could be in for a complete overhaul this offseason. All of the veteran players are currently free agents. How many are worth bringing back? Could the Bengals turn them all loose and start over?

Focus On: Linebackers

This is the first in a series of articles looking through each of the position groups with an eye toward free agency. And why not begin with one of the lightning rods for this team?

On The Precipice: Three Keys To Victory

Steelers_Bengals

Having been a fan and observer of the Cincinnati Bengals for over 30 years, I can say with honesty that I have witnessed most of the team’s seminal moments. Both Super Bowls, almost every playoff game, six head coaches, two home stadiums, and the reigns of both King Paul and King Mike. It is a [...]

Marvin says it is time to step up

marvinlewis

We agree, it is time to step up. Bengals fans have been saying it, the media has been saying it. Now Marvin Lewis said it: “We’re looking for our quarterback and our middle linebacker to take hold of our football team and that’s important for us.” Amen Marvin. Maualuga has been a disappointment this season. [...]

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 84 – What Was That???

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 who saw that coming? We sure didn’t. 13 points against the Dolphins is all the Bengals could muster up? Andy Dalton looked flat, the receivers looked flat, the running game looked, well, non-existent. Hopefully the Bengals get their act together and there’s no better medicine than playing the Cleveland Browns. Don’t forget to nominate [...]

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 81 – You Call That Defense?

post

Uh, what the hell is going on out there defense? 430 yards to the Ravens, OK. But 439 to the Browns? Are you for real? Where is the defensive line? Where are the LB’s? You call that a secondary? How you guys managed to win this game is beyond me, oh yeah our pal Adam [...]

Looking At Linebacker

maualuga-bills

With seven legitimate options to make up the linebacker corps and only six spots available, the Bengals will be forced to make a tough decision at some point. That decision may get delayed until October with a possible suspension looming over Dontay Moch, but it will have to come at some point.

A Burfict Storm?

burfict1

Prior to the hot stove of the 2012 NFL draft was lit, many draftniks saw Arizona State linebacker Vontaze Burfict as a first-round talent.  Coming out of a state championship-winning team at Centennial High School in Corona, CA, Burfict was listed as a 5-star recruit by both Rivals.com and Scout.com and was the top high school [...]
