Looking Glass Game: Andy Dalton

With the news coming from PBS slowing down until the start of training camp, I thought it might be fun to playing an expectation game involving the young marquee players on the roster. The game is simple. Get out your looking glass and tell us how you think the current player will stack up against the best in the team’s history once his career is done. Will he be the best we have...

Looking Glass Game: Leon Hall

Today I want to consider the career trajectory of a more established player, Leon Hall. I was going to limit this series to younger players, and Hall is going into his 6th year in the league. But I kept coming back to Leon because of the diversity of opinion about him. Some consider him a terrific corner, while others think that he is nothing special. So let’s have some fun and...

Cincinnati Bengals: An Extension For Marvin Lewis is Key to Season

The Cincinnati Bengals have not been known as the best-run organization in sports, but this is just downright odd: Cincinnati has not offered their head coach Marvin Lewis a new contract who has one-year remaining.

Shipley + Pick = Harvin?

The Bengals’ need for a #2 WR is well known. While there are a number of candidates for the job, some of whom may turn out to be legitimate options, a proven threat would comfort and excite fans even more for the upcoming season.
