Are we there yet?

Have we reached the point yet in the season as Bengals fans where we are done griping about the same old things that we know won’t be fixed? The stupid penalties. The time-out mismanagement. Kicking the 20-yard field goal on 4th and 2 or the 33-yard field goal down 24-3 (Really?!?). Are we done here? I think the Bengals have Continue Reading...

Deep Thoughts…

The Best and the Worst.  The Bengals have reached their bye week and while every national reporter is taking a shot at Carson Palmer; in looking at the websites that those reporters work for that rank all the teams in the NFL the consensus is that the Bengals two wins have been over the 31st or 32nd ranked team (Carolina), and Continue Reading...

“Hello– my name is Nuff and it has been 4 years, 3 weeks and 5 days since I listened to a Marvin Lewis press conference.” “Hi Nuff. Welcome to Marvin Ignorers Anonymous.

At the risk of causing untold emotional damage, I’m going to state the painful truth : The 2010 Cincinnati Bengals under Marvin Lewis are playing like a Dave Shula coached team from the Lost Decade of the Nineties.  As hard it is to believe, it’s even harder to dispute.  Let’s take a trip down memory lane and compare  the hallmarks of a Dave Shula Continue Reading...

Be honest. Everytime the “little yellow flag” indicator lights up on your TV’s mini scoreboard you know it’s against the Bengals, right? No, make that, you KNOW it’s against the Bengals, right? We all know it’s against the Bengals. To some teams first and fifteen happens occasionally, but the Cincinnati Football Bengals live by it.

Football is a team sport. Often you hear coaches say it takes an entire team to win. In Cincinnati the converse is true; it takes an entire team to lose. After leading by a touchdown and having the ball with 2 and ½ minutes to go and somehow losing the game in regulation to Tampa Bay 24-21, the Bengals go Continue Reading...

From O.T. to T.O., the forward pass has gone from scratching in the dirt to complex plays rivaling Space Shuttle blueprints. And watching Bengals QB Carson Palmer and WR Terrell Owens on Sunday do their ‘Throw & Catch’ show had me pondering that balmy day in 1876 when Yale’s Walter Camp tossed that first-ever forward pass to Oliver “O.T.” Thompson. After which Continue Reading...
