Mike Brown Pens Letter To Fans, Explains Mixon Pick.
In the NFL draft last Friday, the Cincinnati Bengals selected a very talented football player who did a terrible thing his freshman year at college. The player — Joe Mixon — is a top level football player by everyone’s account. Joe’s regrettable deed was that he struck a young woman, another student, shortly after arriving on campus in Norman, Oklahoma, Continue Reading
Bengals Ink First Round Pick WR John Ross.
Bengals coach Marvin Lewis can now contractually prohibit John Ross from racing people away from the football field. The Bengals have announced that Ross, the ninth overall pick in the 2017 draft, has signed his rookie deal. The Bengals also have agreed to terms with linebacker Carl Lawson, a fourth-round pick. “It’s great for John that this part of it Continue Reading
The Rookies Who Will Raise Andy Dalton’s Game.
The Bengals’ brass would never say this publicly, but they know exactly what Andy Dalton is: a cerebral QB whose arm, at its best, is good but not great. Dalton, in other words, must be your offense’s facilitator, not its playmaker. He’s not Brady, Roethlisberger or Rodgers. He can’t be asked to carry the show. And so to win with Continue Reading
Cincinnati Bengals 2017 Draft Nails Immediate Needs, Excites Haters.
The Cincinnati Bengals after five straight playoff appearances went 6-9-1 last season.

Cincinnati TV Station Urges Boycott Of Bengals.
Well, maybe the decision to draft running back Joe Mixon won’t go over as smoothly for the Bengals as believed. Local TV station WCPO, an ABC affiliate, wants fans to skip the team’s home games in 2017. “We are urging every Bengals fan to take drastic action,” an online editorial explains. “Instead of buying a Bengals ticket this year, take the $50 Continue Reading
Speed Wins Out In Bengals’ First Round.
The Bengals had a chance to take a number of defenders still on the board, including pass-rushers Jonathan Allen and Derek Barnett, and linebacker Reuben Foster. Coach Marvin Lewis said no team wanted to trade up when Cincinnati was on the clock, so obviously John Ross was valued enough to take at No. 9. His selection might seem a little Continue Reading
Mixon. Some Say He’s The Best RB In The Draft.
It has been clear for several months how much the Bengals liked Mixon. And if any team was willing to absorb the public scrutiny that came with the pick, it was the Bengals, who stood by Adam Jones after his arrest and have a history of taking chances on troubled players. Mixon is perhaps the most polarizing figure in the Continue Reading

Players come and go but team laundry stays the same. I say fans root for team laundry – and its time for new Bengals laundry.

Mimicking the Browns back Continue Reading
