Ever since Sherman was injured in the NFC…

    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 […]

  • 2014 NFL Season Review: Cincinnati Bengals Touches, Targets and Team Summary
    Much of the conversation surrounding the Cincinnati Bengals both in season and now into the offseason has centered on the suitability of Philip J. Fry Andy Dalton to lead the team. While a QB who has seen more regular season success than most in the league deserves the benefit of the doubt in my opinion, from a fantasy perspective we’re asking the exact same question. After all, with just 3400 yards (3398) and 19 scores to 17 interceptions Dalton certainly wasn’t moving the needle in his own right. The 4th year pro has a lot of weapons at his disposal, but the team didn’t show offensive…

It is hard to tell whether he was worth his number one draft selection or not.In college, Kirkpatrick was a solid cornerback under Nick Saban. During his sophomore and junior seasons, Kirkpatrick had 53 and 29 total tackles, respectively. He racked up three forced fumbles and came down with three interceptions in his career at Alabama.

The team's leading tackler in 2013, Vontaze Burfict, may have got Jerry Maguire to, “show him the money” in the off-season with a four year-$19 million dollar contract, but he didn’t have as successful a year as he had in ’13.

He was drafted by a team that already had a clear-cut starter at the QB position, but after Andy Dalton's performance in 2014, nothing is set in stone in Cincinnati anymore.McCarron entered the draft facing a lot of criticism.
