Draft Strategy: Secondary

leon-hall

When is the last time you can remember the Bengals having a formidable secondary? Not just good corners (Joseph/Hall), but an entire secondary? It’s been a while. You might cite the ’05 team that generated turnovers at a prolific rate, but I could also argue that their steep decline in ’06 indicated that they were [...]

Focus On: Safeties

This position has been more patchwork than plan for too long. It is time the Bengals take a quality safety high in the draft or snatch a guy the way the 49ers swooped in and stole Donte Whitner a couple of years ago.

Bengals Dress Just Three Corners for Jags

clements

In a troubling, if not unexpected, development, the Bengals will dress just three true cornerbacks for today’s game in Jacksonville.  Down are starters Leon Hall and Nate Clements, along with back-up Jason Allen and first round pick Dre Kirkpatrick.  Kirkpatrick hasn’t seen the field yet this year, and Allen has played only a handful of [...]

WDW Episode 78 – Gotta Love the Internet

post

The Bengals lost more than just a game last week vs the Packers as it looks like starting center Kyle Cook is going to miss some extended time. Another big blow to an offensive line already without one starter. The Bengals wrap up their preseason this Thursday night in Indianapolis against Andrew Luck and the [...]

WDW Episode 77 – Reggie Kelly Interview

post

We welcome Mr. Number 1 Fan back to the program this week after spending a week with his family at the beach. Mickey was excited because despite being 12 hours from Cincinnati, he was still able to watch BOTH Bengals preseason games AND still catch the Reds vs the Cubs on WGN. The Bengals did [...]

Could A Corner Be Our Second Best Safety?

Could Newman contribute as a Safety in Mike Zimmer's D?

Mike Zimmer has been nothing less than a Godsend to the Bengals.  In his relatively short time in the Queen City, he’s managed to turn the Bengals defense from an annual sore spot and laughing stock to the unit that often single-handedly wins games.  Perhaps most impressively, he’s done it with a hodgepodge of parts [...]

WDW Episode 59 – Houston, We Have a Problem

We look back on the game itself and we recap the season that was with Bengals.com’s Geoff Hobson. Don’t forget Who-Dey Weekly is now recorded LIVE each and every Wednesday night at 9 pm. Featuring [...]

We said Happy Birthday/Anniversary to the Who-Dey Weekly podcast! We posted our first show exactly one year ago Wednesday. Mickey, Timm and Seubs were also joined this week by Cincinnati’s ESPN 1530 Homer’s, Mo Egger.

Taylor-ed Fit?

I think Mays is a good match with Mike Zimmer and the Bengals defense.

Call me crazy, but I like the fit of Taylor Mays in the Bengals defense. As I told a friend earlier tonight, he’s a younger, faster version of Roy Williams and Williams performed pretty well (when healthy) in Mike Zimmer’s defense. The scouting reports on Mays have been recycled and regurgitated many times by now. [...]

Bengals trade 49ers for Taylor Mays

Taylor Mays may be the best pick we could make with our 2013 7th rounder .

It looks like Mike Brown decided to part with his first draft pick since 2008 (probably one picked up from New England in the trade for OchoCinco). What did he get for this undisclosed pick? A safety named Taylor Mays from the 49ers. The same Taylor Mays that clocked a 4.25 40 yd dash in [...]
