What I Like About You: The Bengals went to the playoffs last season with a rookie quarterback, rookie wide receiver and ultra-young defensive line ... without an offseason or a real training camp. The skys the limit in 2012.
What I Dont Like About You: Ev...

On April 26, 2003, the Cincinnati Bengals took Carson Palmer with the top overall pick in the NFL Draft. The team hoped that the 6-foot-5, 235-pound Southern Cal quarterback would lead the team to its first playoff victory in more than a decade. At the time, Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson had just broken the franchise receiving yards record in just his second NFL season. For...
Going into the 2012 NFL Draft, many draftniks linked the Cincinnati Bengals with Rutgers wide receiver, Mohamed Sanu. What many didn't predict was that Sanu would fall to the team towards the latter portion of the third round, instead of the first two rounds as many experts projected. With the 2012 Training Camp upon us and the second wide receiver job up for grabs, the idea...
The idea that the Cincinnati Bengals have a starting safety right now is a bit subjective. They don't. The favorite being promoted by those around the team, though not necessarily the team, is that Taylor Mays is the favorite. He took most of the first-team snaps with the first team during offseason workouts, but head coach Marvin Lewis told fans during a recent Cincinnati Enquirer...
Last year, wide receiver Brandon Tate was picked up on waivers from the New England Patriots on the final day of roster cuts. He wasn't asked to contribute on offense at all, with only a handful of snaps at wide receiver and zero targets, but rather to become the team's primary kick and punt returner. Now, Tate has moved on to become a leading candidate to take the second...

It’s amazing that just a few years ago this team didn’t win a single game. They were completely devoid of talent and in just a few short years, Jim Schwartz and Martin Mayhew have reversed years of terrible decisions by the Matt Millen regime. In 2008 they didn’t win a game and in 2009 they won just 2. However, in 2010, they won 6, including their last 4 and last year...

Detroit Lions defensive lineman Corey Williams appeared in court in Monticello, Ark., this week facing a charge of driving while intoxicated in an incident that occurred last year, according to the Monticello Daily News. Late on the evening of June 18, 2011, Williams was stopped by an Arkansas State Trooper for crossing the center line, according to the report. He failed the...

With the Detroit Lions now leading the league in arrests this off-season, one player who is well known for his on the field troubles, is speaking out about the team.
Detroit defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh told Michael Silver of...
According to Anwar Richardson of MLive.com, the representatives of Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best won’t indicate whether he’s been cleared for contact during training camp yet.
Richardson says we may not know until the Lions report to camp next week.
The good news is that Best’s back up Mikel LeShoure is ready to go after missing his entire rookie season...
