Should the Cincinnati Bengals consider a WR in the 2015 NFL draft?

There are two places teams can find playmakers to help them in the passing game. Via free agency is one, but that can be a pricey proposition (see the contracts Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas are about to sign). In the draft is the second, but that can be a little bit of a gamble, since college stats are so skewed now by the video-game offenses run at that level. But no matter where...

Cincinnati Bengals Position Review: Wide Receivers

The Cincinnati Bengals have a very underrated wide receiver crew. When we ask other football fans if they can name some of the Bengal's wide receivers, many have a hard time just naming the starters. A.J. Green is obvious, but players like Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones tend to go unnoticed. So who stands out in this crew of wide receivers? A.J Green is obviously the most known in...

How A.J. Green being ruled out effects the Indianapolis Colts

The Cincinnati Bengals top wide receiver A.J. Green has been ruled out of tomorrow’s playoff game against the Colts. Green missed three games earlier in the season, including the blowout loss to the Colts. The Colts will now benefit by being able to load up in the box and slow down Jeremy Hill, because that only leaves Mohamed Sanu as the Bengals top choice in the passing game...

Cincinnati Bengals @ Indianapolis Colts - Wild Card Weekend

The day Andrew Luck has a running game, is the day I'll be a believer in the Colts. I was on the verge of becoming a believer when Ahmad Bradshaw was turning into a fantasy stud once again, however with his season ending injury, the Colts run game is non existent and the team is one dimensional. However the Colts are running into a Bengals team who has made the playoffs the last...

A.J. Green listed as doubtful for playoff game against Colts

The Bengals chances of winning on the road in the Wild Card game against the Colts are shrinking. Wide receiver A.J. Green is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game, a result of a concussion suffered in the Bengals regular season loss to the Steelers last weekend. If Green does not play the Bengals will have to turn to Mohamed Sanu as their lead receiver. Earlier this year the Colts...

Cincinnati Bengals’ Limited Receiving Options

Andy Dalton has seen his numbers drop between the 2013 and 2014 season. He has almost 1,000 fewer passing yards and he has 14 fewer touchdowns this season. Dalton’s passing attempts have dropped from 586 in 2013 to 482 in 2014. These drops in numbers are related to several reasons. One of the reasons is the dominance of Cincinnati’s running backs. The Bengals do not have to pass...

NFL Stock Watch Fallers: Week 11

Mohamed Sanu – When AJ Green went down with a toe injury the Bengals needed someone to step up in his absence, and during that time it was Mohamed Sanu and he played very well. He was averaging 10.6 targets per game, up from 6.7 when Green is in. He also had 18 receptions for 299 yards during those three weeks as well. Since Green has worked his way back, Sanu has been slowly taking...

CINCINNATI -- The script was all too familiar for the Bengals. Prime time game, this one at home against a team looking to make a name for itself in a division filled with teams that for years have pulled the big brother act on it. A win by the Bengals would put the Browns back in their place and solidify a hold on first place in the AFC North. So, naturally, the Bengals fell flat...

Sanu comes up with big plays in Bengals win over Ravens

CINCINNATI -- When he caught four touchdowns in a three-game span midway through the 2012 season, many thought Mohamed Sanu was going to develop into a red zone threat that would take the pressure off of A.J. Green. Then came a toe injury that shelved him for the remainder of his rookie year and a challenging 2013 season where he finished fourth in the team in receptions but had...
