Shatter The Backboard:
BenJarvis Green-Ellis-Bengals- We liked this signing as soon as it was announced as the Bengals historically, are a running team first and foremost. With only Bernard Scott and Brian Leonard as back ups, BJGE should run and run often and have his share of goal line carries. For some reason, Steven Jackson is coming off the boards before Green-Ellis and frankly, we think it should be the other way around. In the last 3 seasons, S-Jax has seen his yards fall 1416, 1241, and last season 1145. He averaged 5 TD’s over the same period, while Green-Ellis has averaged 12 TD’s over the past 2 seasons with the Pats-and that was in a time-share! In fact we like BJGE better than Adrian Peterson and Frank Gore as well.

In the months leading up to the draft, no player saw his stock fall further than former Arizona State linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who had once been viewed in some circles as a potential first-round draft pick, but who ended up not getting drafted at all. The Bengals may end up benefiting from Burfict’s slide. After Cincinnati [...]
Last season all the “experts” had the opinion that the Cincinnati Bengals were probably going to be the worst team in the NFL. We all know how that turned out. Now, fast forward a season and many of the same experts expect very little from the Bengals. Most pick them out of the playoffs. Some fans look at the odds for more entertainment and more sports betting action, while...
According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham will suit for Monday night’s game against the Ravens. On the other hand, running back Bernard Scott will not play.

This time last year, I had declared the Cincinnati Bengals a complete dumpster fire. Their only proven QB was Carson Palmer who fit both despicable categories slumping performer and disgruntled trade-demander. This forced the hand of new Offensive Coordinator Jay Gruden to rely on a rookie, QB Andy Dalton, as a starter. With the departure of 2010’s top WRs Chad Ocho Cinco...

Anyone who followed me during the offseason knows I picked 5 underrated and overrated teams with the intention of trying to get ahead of the odds makers.

BALTIMORE (AP) -- The Cincinnati Bengals can't ignore their shortcoming of last season: an 0-7 record against teams that made the playoffs, followed by a humbling loss to Houston in the wild-card round.
For that reason, the Bengals have put a huge priority on defeating the AFC North champion Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.
