What a draft by the Cincinnati Bengals! By most accounts from some of the bigger “draft experts” around the league, the Bengals had one of, IF NOT, the best drafts in all of football. Timm couldn’t make it this week so filling in for us is Sean O’Donnell from StripeHype.com and helping us break down the draft is Shane P. Hallam from DraftCountdown.com.
In this week’s show...
Terrell Owens has been one of the NFL’s most dramatic players off-the-field. He’s shared both willingly and unwillingly his issues with his family, his finances, his friends and business associates.
In doing so, he’s revealed a certain sadness that should not be characteristic of a man that seemingly has had it all.

According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, there’s a good chance that Cincinnati Bengals rookie cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick could end up starting at left corner right away.
Everything will depend on whether or not the Bengals are willing to pay Clements $5.5 million in 2012. If they feel like Kirkpatrick can start as a rookie, Clements could be cut before June 1st.
17. CB Dre Kirkpatrick BI liked Kirkpatrick a little better at 21 for the Bengals (26th on my board) and I’m not sure any team from 18-20 would have taken him and if they had, that’s not too bad because this was a very, very deep cornerback class. This isn’t a terrible pick, however, because it at least fills a need.27. G Kevin Zeitler C-I really don’t like this pick. There’s...
You know the Bengals have some questions at Wide Receiver. You also knew they were going to address that at some point in the draft. The Bengals went out and got a great possession receiver in Mohamed Sanu. What this guy also brings to the table is the ability to decleate guys when making blocks for the offense. Watch the video below, for every catch there is a shot of Sanu laying...
After looking at the offensive and defensive lines, it is time to look at the most important position on the field: Quarterback. Even though there is no question who the starter will be, there will be important decisions to make regarding this position.
The biggest decision will be how many QBs to carry on the roster. The Bengals typically carry three, but last year they opted to...
Despite going 9-7 last year and making the playoffs, the Bengals still finished third in the AFC North. But that will happen when you play in the toughest division in the AFC.
At the risk of minor heresy, I was OK with a 3rd place finish for the Bengals this year. We have seen the Bengals leap from 4th to 1st in the division a couple of times, and the increase in difficulty of the...
Hot News for C Marvin Lewis
When the NFL released the 2012 season schedule for each team a couple of weeks ago, nearly every Bengals fan had their eyes on one particular game. Call it the "Carson Bowl", the "PBS Battle", or whatever you like; but on November 25th (Week 12), quarterback Carson Palmer will be making his return to Cincinnati. This date marks the first time that Palmer will...
Soon after the completion of the 2012 NFL draft, teams jump on the phone to sign the undrafted free agents that they liked during the predraft process. Sometimes this process can be maddening because many of the sources are somewhat obscure and we're always bound to miss one. Still we charted it the best we could, charting a total of 14 players.
The Cincinnati Bengals officially...
Experts, fans, players, coaches, and most anyone else associated with the NFL has raved about the Cincinnati Bengals draft class of 2012. The team filled the voids at cornerback and guard, greatly improved the defensive line, and drafted talented player after talented player. Also of vital importance, however, was the drafting of wide receivers Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones to address...
It is that time of the year again--the time to hand out grades for the NFL Draft. Football Outsiders has compiled a list of grades from nine NFL writers and draft analysts to see how the grades would average out. Guess who has the top Grade Point Average (GPA) out of all 32 teams? You are correct if you guessed the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Bengals highest grade was of course an...
Former Bengals defensive end Jonathan Fanene bolted Cincinnati soon after receiving a phone call from New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, quickly signing a $12 million deal over three seasons. Fanene left Cincinnati as one of the team's better pass rushers and versatile players, playing as much defensive end as he did defensive tackle during obvious passing downs...
