    Big Challenge In Big Easy For Dalton

    What do Hall of Fame quarterbacks Johnny Unitas, Otto Graham, Terry Bradshaw, Joe Namath, Dan Fouts, Warren Moon, Len Dawson, and Bob Griese have in common? They all had single-game passer ratings lower than the 2.0 posted by Andy Dalton in last week’s loss to Cleveland. I’m not trying to suggest that Dalton is as […]

    Hill Earns Rave Reviews…Except From Himself

    After rushing for 154 yards on 24 carries in his first NFL start, rookie Jeremy Hill must have been excited to race home and watch the tape of his performance. Especially the 60-yard touchdown run that helped put the Jaguars away in the fourth quarter. Then again, maybe not. “Honestly I’m not,” Hill told me. […]

    Bengals Fall From First Place In Shutout Loss To Colts

    To paraphrase the old commercial for a medical alarm, the Bengals have fallen and they can’t get up. At least not yet. After a lopsided loss at New England and a bitterly disappointing tie vs. Carolina, the Bengals played their worst all-around game since the 2011 Dalton-Green reboot in a 27-0 defeat at Indianapolis. “We […]

    • Bengals Avoid Receivers in NFL Draft
      The Cincinnati Bengals went into the 2015 NFL Draft with specific needs. Strengthen the offensive and defensive lines, add some depth at linebacker, get a productive tight end and pick up a wide receiver to add to the already solid core group.Through the first six rounds, and eight Cincinnati picks, the Bengals have accomplished all of those goals except one: receiver. With some big names still on the board at the wideout position, Cincy chose to go with Cedric Ogbuehi out of Texas A&M. The offensive tackle tore his ACL in the Aggies’ Spring Game, but will have a chance to recover completel…

    • Cincinnati Bengals hope CB Josh Shaw’s history won’t be a problem
      Josh Shaw who is a cornerback out of USC faced quite the roller-coaster ride in college. He was caught in a famous lie in which he claimed to be a hero. In the end he was quite the opposite after monster backlash for having fooled the entire nation in a phony lie. Not saying that it isn’t something that should be frowned upon, but people do make mistakes and having it out of the way now is better than dealing with it later on and I am sure the Bengals would agree after they selected him in the fourth round. Shaw will give the Bengals a bit of versatility in their defensive backfield. He h…

    • Cincinnati Bengals use first round pick on Cedric Ogbuehi
      The Cincinnati Bengals left the first round of the NFL Draft Thursday night with offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi out of Texas A&M. This was a bit of a surprise as high as twenty-one overall especially with guys like Bud Dupree, Shane Ray, and Landon Collins still available. Ogbuehi, while an extremely talented offensive tackle, has dealt with major injuries including a torn ACL. Ogbuehi has the makings to become a legitimate left tackle in the NFL, but returning to full strength is a major concern.NEWS: #Bengals draft Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Texas A&Mwith the 21st pick in the 2015 #NFLDraft—…
