With an 0-5 start the Bengals appear to be in full tank-mode, which leaves us pondering what the future holds for some of the veteran players on both sides of the ball. We’re already looking forward to how the team will manage to ruin their high draft picks in the coming years, and while he hasn’t had much to work with, nobody has been overly impressed with the start of Zac Taylor’s tenure. It’s not all doom and gloom on the gridiron though, as UC and Ohio State both had big wins this past weekend, and each team appears to be the favorite to finish on top of their respective divisions.
After starting the season with a close loss in Seattle in Week 1, the Bengals absolutely had the doors blown off by the 49ers in Week 2. They looked terrible on both sides of the ball and any confidence we had in the team is now completely gone. With the Reds approaching the end of an equally disappointing season, there aren’t many bright spots in Cincinnati sports these days, although Eugenio Suarez being tied for lead in the MLB home run race at least gives us something to hang our hats on.
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.
