Week 2: 49ers at Seahawks (9/13)

The 49ers and the Seahawks, along with the Broncos, comprised the top three spots in most people's power rankings this offseason, and nothing much changed after all three teams won their week one games.  Make no mistake, the 49ers are one of the toughest teams the Seahawks will face all season, and the matchup is made even tougher by the fact that they play the Seahawks twice...

Question Marks vs Weaknesses

The natural tendency for most people — analysts, fans and rivals alike — is to assume that any question mark about a team is by definition a weakness. If a player or position group is not considered a strength, then he/they must be a weakness, right? Not necessarily. It is understandable to want to see guys “prove it” on the field before buying in, but having question marks...

Relax! Part Two: CB

Yesterday I addressed  the incessant hand-wringing in Who Dey-ville regarding the second starting WR position.  Today, I’ll look at another area that seems to get a lot of publicity from fans and “experts” alike:  The cornerbacks. It seems this area of the team is concerning to the overpaid and blowhard “pundits,” and with all due respect, I don’t get why the fans...

Corner will be an option for Bengals in free agency

Brought to you by Cincy Jungle The recent release of highly paid Oakland Raider cornerback Stanford Routt has helped accelerate interest in the free agent market for all cornerbacks. Corner is likely to be one of the positions with the most depth once free agency hits this March. This is a good thing for our Bengals, who will be needing some help at the position.

Making Sense Of Brandon Browner

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner is a bit of a polarizing figure. At his best is very good. At his worst he’s so frustrating that’s its sickening. As with everything, his true value is somewhere in between those two extremes. I get why most fans like him. Just the fact that he’s the opposite of Kelly Jennings (the frustrating player he replaced) instantly made him...

Zimmer wants interceptions … now!

To say that Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer is upset about his unit’s lack of interceptions would be an understatement. In typical Zimmer fashion, he did not mince words about what he expects from his pass defense going into Sunday’s game against Houston. “I am going to start changing guys out if they don’t start doing it better,” Zimmer said. “I am going to...

Dunlap doubtful, Clements among four questionable
