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 [...]

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 [...]

The Bengals did what they were supposed to do. They went on the road and took out a Chiefs team that’s mired in misery. Don’t we know that pain Bengals fans? It’s just nice to know that fans of other teams outside of the Queen City have to experience this pain. Don’t look now but [...]

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 [...]

Wow, it is just like the GridIron Challenge all over again. For those of you that didn’t know, the challenge was where I got to play flag football with the Bengals.
