Bengals Win And They’re In

Who would have ever thought the Cincinnati Bengals would be in this position entering the final week of the 2011 regular season? Entering the year, expectations were at an all-time low … and that’s saying quite a bit when you’re talking about the Bengals. Even the most-optimistic of fans could see the writing on the […]

Bengals Playoff Bound? Green Tops 1,000, Dalton Tops 3,000

All right, so I was off on my prediction that the Bengals would string off three-consecutive wins against the Texans, Rams and Cardinals. Thanks, T.J. Yates (with an assist from Pacman “I like-ed da scrip clubs” Jones). However, after their heartbreaking loss to the Texans, the Bengals were able to rebound with a sloppy, yet […]

Bengals About To Embark On 3-Game Win Streak?

For the Cincinnati Bengals to make the playoffs, they need to win their next three games. And that’s exactly what they are going to do in my opinion. Get ready for a three-game winning streak and a wildcard spot in the playoffs. (And then a first-round ass-kicking in the playoffs. But, hey, I’ll take it!) […]

Bengals Top Browns, Move to 7-4

The Cincinnati Bengals took a big step towards a possible spot in the AFC playoffs with a 23-20 come-from-behind win over the visiting Cleveland Browns on Sunday. In fact, Mike Nugent’s game-winning 26-yard field goal with 41 seconds left – which was set up by a great 51-yard reception from rookie A.J. Green – was […]

Botched Call Burns Bengals, But Plenty Of Good Signs

Just when you thought the “horse-collar” rule was the worst thing added to football recently, we’re reminded of the NFL’s absolutely absurd idea that receivers must “control the ball all the way to the ground” on touchdowns. Keep in mind, a runner can dive over the pile, put the ball barely over the goal line, […]

Bengals Lose Game To Steelers, Hall For Season

The Cincinnati Bengals had their most-disappointing Sunday of the season when they were defeated by the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers 24-17 and lost cornerback Leon Hall for the season with a torn Achilles. The irony here is when the Bengals decided to not out-spend the Houston Texans for free agent cornerback Johnathan Joseph earlier this year, […]

5 Straight W’s For Bengals

In their longest winning streak since the Super Bowl season of 1988, the Cincinnati Bengals have ran off five consecutive victories and stand atop the AFC North standings along with the Baltimore Ravens with a 6-2 record. Trailing 17-7 at halftime at the Tennessee Titans last Sunday, the Bengals dominated the second stanza to the […]

Q&A Exchange With Total Titans

I had the enjoyable opportunity to participate in a question-and-answer session with Andrew Strickert, publisher of Total Titans here on the Bloguin Network. If you’re looking for a interesting primer for Sunday’s Cincinnati Bengals at Tennessee Titans matchup, you certainly came to the right place. My questions to Andrew and his answers are posted first. […]

Bengals’ D-Line: Good

Do the Cincinnati Bengals have the best defensive line in the NFL? Well, that might be laying it on a bit thick, but there’s no question they have one of the best. And the deepest. For anyone that follows Ohio State, the 2011 Bengals are mimicking what the Buckeyes have done for years on their […]

Never Been So Happy To Be Wrong

I received a text message from a friend today (well, I used to consider him a friend) who reminded me of a certain pearl of wisdom that I passed on before the season: There’s a story I’d like to tell about the 2011 Cincinnati Bengals: They suck. The end. Mea culpa! I did think the […]

Must-Read Piece From Yahoo On Dalton, Palmer, Bengals

There are great stories … and then there are must-read pieces like this one from Yahoo on the new-look Bengals led by Andy Dalton and how Carson Palmer quit on the team during the season last year. Yes, you read that correctly: Palmer didn’t decide after the 2010 season that he was done in Cincinnati; […]

Palmer Took $5 Million Paycut To Join Raiders

Carson Palmer is under contract through 2014 and he will still be one of the NFL’s highest-paid quarterbacks if he remains on the Oakland Raiders’ roster from 2012-14. However, for the rest of this season, Palmer will make “just” 2.5 million, which is roughly $5 million less than the $7.44 million he was scheduled to […]

Here’s Lookin’ At You, 4-2

All right, let’s stop thinking about the Carson Palmer trade just for a moment – but only for a little bit since it was so fantastically awesome – and discuss some other matters on the Who Dey front. We all knew the Bengals’ schedule was extremely weak this season – especially early in the year […]

It’s Official: Bengals Trade Palmer To Raiders

There’s a party going on right here. A celebration, to last throughout the years. So bring your good times, and your laughter too. We’re gonna celebrate your party with you. Yes, Kool & The Gang’s Celebration bests describes how Cincinnati Bengals fans feel right now. Just when it looked like the team would never get […]

Palmer Traded To Raiders?

In a move that appears far too good to be true, multiple media outlets are reporting the Cincinnati Bengals have traded quarterback Carson Palmer to the Oakland Raiders for a first-round draft pick in 2012 and a second-rounder in 2013. The second-round pick will become a first-rounder in 2013 if the Raiders win a playoff […]
