It seems that the most interesting and entertaining debate in Bengal circles revolves around the opening for a number two receiver. The debate has been raging for weeks now, with fans making cases for vets like Brandon Tate and Armon Binns, or pushing the virtues of rookies Mohammed Sanu and Marvin Jones.
It’ll make for good fun and lots to write about over the summer. Maybe Binns is the next Ocho, or Sanu is the next T.J.
In the meantime, I prefer to look at things pragmatically and take a “worst case scenario” approach to the wide receiver battle. Obviously, A.J. Green is a stud, but he may have a sophomore slump. Injuries may plague guys like Jordan Shipley again. Worst yet, we may find that none of the guys on the roster can match the paltry production we got out of Jerome Simpson last year.
A scary thought.
If it turns out that the aerial attack does not make leaps and bounds in 2012, then the hopes for Cincinnati’s post-season successes rest ever more so on the running ...

To casual football fans, the Cincinnati Bengals are probably best known for missing the playoffs in 14 consecutive seasons, with nary a winning season in the mix.
It’s sometimes hard to recall that the Bengals actually played in two Super Bowls in the 1980s, and came close to winning both of them.
One of the biggest reasons the Bengals went through such a long postseason...
Future Hall of Fame Wide Receiver Terrell Owens now has little hope of a return to the NFL after his latest departure from an indoor football league team. The Allen Wranglers released Owens because of “lack of effort both on and off the field.”
The Wranglers have an important away game this weekend, and Owens refused to suit up for the road game. In Owens’ original contract...
Terrell Owens is being dogged out by a lot of people right now. Former team mates, baby-mamas, agents and even a fourth-tier arena league team.
Next up to get some is Mike Tyson. He did a radio interview today with Philadelphia’s 97.5: The Fanatic and he kept it real in regards to how Owens has handled himself, whether the public should feel sorry for him and his now notorious...
Terrell Owens has never been a model citizen. Yet, as with most people, there's always been a hope that he'd someday "get it." That day is never coming. After getting kicked to the curb by his Indoor Football League team, it's becoming increasingly clear that "not a model citizen" doesn't even begin to describe Owens. Instead, he's a guy who...
Wide receiver Terrell Owens has been released by the Allen Wranglers of the IFL, according to ESPN Dallas.
Owens refused to play in two upcoming road games, and also turned down an appearance at a childrens hospital, and his ownership stake in the Wranglers has been terminated. He chipped in 35 catches for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns over eight games, but the organization...

If anyone thought the sad saga of Terrell Owens as a halfwit player in a two-bit league was over when the Allen Wranglers unceremoniously cut the malcontent after he refused to play in two upcoming road games, and perhaps most egregious of all, didn’t show up for a scheduled appearance at a children’s hospital, well, [...]
When it was first announced Terrell Owens was headed to the Indoor Football league to play for the Allen Wranglers, you couldn’t help but think he’d reached rock bottom. Who would expect 3 months later T.O. would be released and the reasons behind why sounding oddly familiar. Wranglers owner, Jon Frankel cited Owens’ refusal to play [...]
After finishing a meager 20th in overall offense in 2011, the Bengals have made a number of changes to their personnel in order to better implement Jay Gruden’s version of the West Coast Offense. There will be at least four new starters from last year, as well as new regular role players. And at every change made, I see an upgrade.

Terrell Owens just keeps falling down the stairs to success. Terrell Owens was at one point a phenomenal athlete but now it seems that people can't get him away from them fast enough. Owens has been playing in the Indoor Football League hoping to bide his time until he could return to the NFL, but after being cut from his own team I doubt that anybody would even consider it...
The Cincinnati Bengals announced last week that rookie offensive guard Kevin Zeitler agreed to terms on a four-year deal. According to Aaron Wilson, Zeitler's four-year contract is worth $7.544 million with a $3.926 million signing bonus and a total guarantee of $6.124 million.
Terrell Owens wants to sue his former Indoor Football League team, crying foul over being unceremoniously dumped. The Allen Wranglers, which T.O. played for and was part-owner, dumped him after they had enough of the head case receiver.
Team president and co-owner Tommy Benizio said “the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back for Mr. Owens was his no-show to a scheduled...
