BEST OF MAXIM
Bengals fans have been heartened by many things over the last 3 weeks, but one of the most pleasant changes (aside from winning games) has been the ongoing development of WR Mohamed Sanu. After scoring 4 touchdowns over the last 3 weeks, Sanu has emerged as the primary #2 receiver, and a huge target in the red zone. He showed up as “limited” on Cincinnati’s injury report...
The problem with having a secret weapon comes when that secret ends.
The red-hot Cincinnati Bengals file the emergence of rookie wide receiver Mohamed Sanu under the category of good problems to have.
The Bengals have won three straight, all in dominant fashion, and Sanu has caught touchdown passes in all three. A healthy scratch in game six of the season who was still getting acclimated...
It only took one pass play for the tone to be set Sunday. Palmer’s first dropback, BOOM, Geno Atkins threw him to the ground. At that point we ALL knew what kind of day it was going to be for Mr. Quitter himself. Speaking of quitting, did you see that Palmer’s Raider teammate Rolando McClain wants out of Oakland? Haha! Thanks for the draft picks. I’d much rather have the young...

Mohamed Sanu suffered a stress fracture during practice Thursday, reports Joe

Hey, it's one of those times I'm thrilled to be wrong.I thought the Bengals were among the "walking dead" of NFL teams this year when they had a 3-5 record. But suddenly they've won three straight -- all in blowout fashion -- and are tied with the Steelers at 6-5 and for the final playoff spot in the AFC (the Steelers currently own the tiebreaker due to their...
Bengals offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth called some of the Oakland Raiders ''cowards'' for hitting him during an on-field skirmish.
Whitworth said on Wednesday that he hadn't yet received a fine from the NFL. He expects a significant one later in the week. Whitworth and Raiders linemen Lamarr Houston and Tommy Kelly were ejected in the fourth quarter of Cincinnati...
Let me just preface this article by stating that if the Bengals start to fall apart this week that it isn’t my fault. I seem to have the black hand when it comes to writing good things about NFL players and NFL teams. I praise them and BOOM they start to come apart at the seams.My first article for Footballnation.com was titled The Unfair Scrutiny of Tony Romo. I argued that Romo...
Angry fans often express their displeasure with a player who has left for another team by burning their jersey. That is nothing new. But some vile Cincinnati Bengals fan decided to take the process a step further by urinating on a Carson Palmer jersey before his group lit it on fire.
In the video above featuring some NSFW language, you can see the man urinate on the Palmer jersey...
Cincinnati Bengals (6-5) at San Diego Chargers (4-7)
Last week, I took the Chargers for a big play for several reasons. Philip Rivers was 31-19 ATS in week 11 or later. In the last 3 years, as mediocre as they’ve been, they were still 10-5 ATS in week 11 or later, including a cover the week before in Denver. As underdogs, as they were last week, Rivers was 12-4 ATS in week 11 or...
