Bengals Offense Wins, Defense Loses – And Oh, Those !&@%$# Penalties!

5 Submitted by on Sun, 29 August 2010, 15:46
The Bengals played their fourth exhibition game last night.  Yipee!  Thanks to the booby prize for being selected to play in the Hall of Fame game 3 weeks ago, the Bengals still have one more meaningless preseason game to go. Although trying to extract meaning from an exhibition game is like trying to get the truth out of the brain trust in Continue Reading...

Fraud or Fiction? Andre Smith is a Ravenous, Lactating Platypus Man

Over the weekend, I was conducting field research on my latest preoccupation, the mating habits of hot celebrit…err, monotremes, when I had an epiphany about Andre Smith. What, you don’t know monotremes? Well, you haven’t been spending enough time at Oddbounces then, have you? Long-time ‘bouncers come here all the time for just these sort of zoological ice breakers at Continue Reading...

Let us bow our heads and give thanks. We’re three games into this meat grinder called NFL Preseason, and so far just one player lost for the year. Just one. So far. But as Nuff tells us – close your eyes and hold your breath. In the Friday Night Lights against the dangerous Philadelphia Eagles at PB Stadium, the Boys In Stripes gave us just Continue Reading...

The Cincinnati Bengals played the Philly Eagles last night at PBS – we won. Pinch me, I must be dreaming. You probably know how we feel about exhibition NFL football here at Oddbounces. The motto engraved on our World Headquarters reads, “Can we instead click our heels three times and be kicking off against the Pats on September 12?” So, in case you Continue Reading...

Straight up, I hate NFL preseason games. Deplore them. Wish the worst on ’em. Aside from being a money grab for the NFL and team owners, preseasons are nothing more than Injury Row – places where valuable football player’s seasons get snuffed out in the blink of a poked eye. Basically, the three remaining preseason games are 90 percent about making money, Continue Reading...

’10 Still A Leap Year For Bengals. Oddbounces Star Chamber Says Let’s Make Most Of It.

Appears the Cincinnati football Bengals have dodged the dreaded preseason injury bullet with word that running back Brian Leonard’s foot injury isn’t season- or career-threatening. A mild foot sprain means he lives to play another day in a pretty talented backfield.   A Bengals’ backfield featuring Cedric Benson, The Basher …  Bernard Scott, The Slasher … and Leonard, The Dasher....

Let’s Face It. Bengals Can’t Win With Palmer.

You’re not going to like what I have to say. Palmer is not an elite NFL quarterback. Never has been, never will be. And after Sunday night’s pathetic preseason performance against Dallas, that fact should be as clear as the reason why I need extra large pleats sown into my pants. Sadly, the Palmer investment has failed to bring the Continue Reading...
