The Bengals are finally back! And they weren’t as bad as we had all assumed they were going to be. They kept it close against the Seahawks, and have given us some hope for the rest of the season. John Ross had a surprisingly great game, and Andy Dalton was competent in his role with the new offense. Overall, we’re just happy that football is back, and we let Jeff gloat about the Browns loss. Enjoy the show!
We’re just days away from the start of the NFL season, and the feeling in the room is less than optimistic at this point. We talk about the current state of the Bengals’ 53-man roster before switching gears to Reds and college football talk. We close it out with more NFL talk as we predict the Bengals’ record this year and give our thoughts on who’s going to be in Super Bowl LIV. (Spoiler Alert: It’s not the Bengals)
On this week’s episode of Riverfront Radio, we have a special guest on to talk about the upcoming college football season – T-Bone. We delve into the Bengals preseason happenings, as well as some commentary on Andrew Luck’s sudden retirement. We also give our predictions for the College Football Playoffs and some dark horse picks. Enjoy the show!
Outside of the regularly scheduled Aristides Aquino home run and the throwback uniforms, we don’t really have a whole lot left to say about the Reds, who find themselves 7.5 games back with just 39 left to play. The Bengals, on the other hand, are just getting started, although they don’t inspire much confidence in the team either at the moment. We have been impressed by some of the younger guys on the roster though, including Ryan Finley, who has all but locked up the backup quarterback spot just two weeks into the preseason.
On today’s episode of Riverfront Radio, we have immediate reactions to Aquino hitting monster home-runs at Great American Ballpark, and the first Bengals preseason game. The Reds are looking good after a 10-1 win over the Cubs with a of bunch guys that were playing in Louisville earlier this month. Do we have a quarterback controversy in Cincinnati? NO. We love Andy. Enjoy the show!
There was a lot of Reds news to catch up on from the past week between the Pirates fight and all of the deadline trades. Amir Garrett may have cemented himself as a fan favorite with his decision to take on the entire Pittsburgh bench by himself. We give our thoughts on the departure of Puig, Scooter and Co., the arrival of Trevor Bauer and what the future holds for the Reds for the rest of 2019 and beyond. We also look forward to the Bengals first preseason game and even dabble in some FC Cincinnati talk.
Who didn’t see this coming? AJ Green is injured (not hurt) and it’s got us all a little depressed about the start of Bengals training camp. We also ponder the future of some of our current Redlegs with the trade deadline coming up and the Reds pretty much eliminated from the divisional race. We also give Jeff a bunch of shit about his poor life choices. Enjoy the show!
The Reds are off to an absolutely abysmal start after the All Star break, which other than preventing Mac from having to get some awkward tattoos, has been of little benefit to us as fans. We discuss the potential trade deadline moves the team could make now that they’ve solidified themselves as sellers, and also give David Bell props for breaking the franchise record for single-season manager ejections. With the NFL preseason just a couple weeks away we start looking forward to football season and we take a few minutes to belittle each other for our personal preferences of ice cream flavors.
Clint Boling is calling it quits for the Bengals, and we wish we could retire early too. The Reds are off to a crappy start to the 2nd half of the season, and we wonder if they’ll be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. We also talk more in depth about the Reds 150th anniversary jerseys they’ve been wearing. Enjoy the show!
The Reds earned another series victory over the Cubs this past weekend, which included some fireworks between Yasiel Puig and Pedro Strop. We discuss that, David Bell’s record-setting ejection numbers and the fact that Castillo is the lone Reds All-Star. We touch on the ridiculous NBA free agency numbers and Mac and Whitty get their hopes up thanks to some late-breaking NHL free agency rumors. We also take a moment to wish are friends north of the border a Happy Canada day, as well as a Happy Fourth of July to all of our listeners here in the states.
