For a fourth straight season, Razzball will be interviewing local NFL beat writers for some actual in-depth football knowledge to shed some additional light on our fantasy football knowledge. Keep your eye out for an interview for every NFL team through the summer. This installment comes courteous of Josh Kirkendall from leading Cincinnati Bengals blog Cincy Jungle (date of interview – August 2nd):

It makes me feel like a vet T…Jordan Campbell, rookie linebacker for the Cincinnati Bengals, was recently spotted on HBO’s Hardknocks sporting the UNC Henley Hoodie by UNCL.

In the most recent episode of HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” Cincinnati Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis received some special treatment from team owner Mike Brown. Brown wheeled the Lawfirm into practice on his golf cart, leading Green-Ellis to place his hand upon the owner’s knee as a gesture of endearment. Head coach Marvin Lewis instantly began […]
Apparently, a player riding a cart into practice with his owner is the NFL equivalent of a student hanging out with a teacher after school. Rolling with the head honcho is grounds for humiliation if you play football in Cincinnati. It’s simply inadmissible.So when BenJarvus Green-Ellis showed up for work in the passenger seat next to owner Mike Brown, his teammates and coaches...
There's a chance Aaron Maybin's pro football career is over, but at least his departing appearance on HBO's Hard Knocks could set him up for a whole new profession.
Maybin was released by the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, but before that happened he had a chance to introduce HBO's audience to his hobby. During Tuesday's episode, we saw the former first-round...
Leon Hall had a particularly bad game on a particularly bad day for the Bengals defense in the second week of the 2007 season. Hall was a rookie cornerback who was in coverage on three of the five touchdown passes Derek Anderson threw as Cleveland won a 51-45 onslaught of offense on the shores of Lake Erie.
When the Bengals returned to Cleveland in 2008, a late season game this...
Now three years since getting his wish, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer still refuses to say why he wanted out of Cincinnati.
Palmer went into semi-retirement after the Bengals refused to trade him as he requested in 2011.
After two unsuccessful seasons in Oakland, Carson Palmer is settling in for a final stint in Arizona.
But nobody knows what pushed Palmer over...
Ohio’s version of Rocky Balboa, Cincinnati Bengals’ safety,
George Iloka, is preparing himself to be ready for Week 1 after suffering a
wrist injury, reports Joe
Reedy of Cincinnati.com.
When Coach Lewis told his players last week to “take the
field,” Iloka must have heard him say, “Get in the ring.” During practice, Iloka decided to throw a
right cross to the helmet...
Since returning to practice on Aug. 14 A.J. Green has looked like he barely missed a step after missing two weeks due to a bruised knee.
In his first preseason action on Saturday Green got some game action in and finished with 3 receptions for 42 yards.
“I felt good out there. It was good to get back and get my wind back” Green said. “I was a little tired out there at the...
