Are the Cincinnati Bengals still ‘the brunt of jokes’?

For years, the Cincinnati Bengals deserved their derogatory nickname. Yes, the “Bungles” had no reason to ***** about being the butt of so many football jokes. After all, this is a team that between 1991 and 2004 had zero winning seasons. They went 71-153 during that span, which was the worst record in the NFL by a huge margin. The Bengals aren’t a mess these days. They’ve...

Raider fans take out newspaper ad to bring back Hue Jackson

Silly Raiders fans! — ゴジラ (@RaiderSparky) November 20, 2014 If this is not a joke, it is wrong on several levels. Whomever took out this ad does not speak for the majority of Raider fans.

Hue Jackson enjoys Bengals being ‘the hunted’

Don't look now, folks, but the Cincinnati Bengals appear to be for real. One of only two still-undefeated teams, they're the new "fashionable" favorite to snap a 14-year playoff-less streak and, if the stars align, win Super Bowl 49. As of now, offensive coordinator Hue Jackson says, the Bengals are atop the food chain. And he's taking pleasure in it. "Now we're the hunted," Jackson...

Bengals offense focusing on tempo, attitude under new OC

CINCINNATI -- Hue Jackson has been here before. Being the man in charge of an NFL offense isn't anything new for Jackson, although he is the new man in charge of the Bengals offense this season. He's got a good group to work with; a young quarterback who is trying to show he can lead his team to the next level, an All-Pro wide receiver and a dynamic running back who is a highlight...

Washington Redskins should Hire Hue Jackson as Head Coach

/logs into Redskins Hog Heaven... Whoa?
