Congratulations Lou Anarumo, You’re The Lucky Winner of a Bunch of Slow Linebackers!

The long national nightmare is over. The Bengals have finally found their defensive coordinator. It took six years and seventeen weeks (if you ask the national media) for Zac Taylor and the Bengals to find their guy, but it’s finally happened. Welcome to Cincinnati, Lou Anarumo. Continue reading

Jeremy Hill Takes Unnecessary Shot at Bengals Fans Then Proceeds to Cry Like a Baby When People Remind Him He Fumbled Away a Playoff Win in 2016

If you’ve been on Twitter today, you know that Jeremy Hill was feeling himself as he celebrated a season in which he had 25 yards on 4 carries on the path to the Patriots sixth Super Bowl ring. The celebration and parade wasn’t enough. The always classy Jeremy Hill decided to post this to his Instagram story. Continue reading

The Bengals Are Heading to London in 2019

Is it just me or does it seem like every year more and more of the NFL games are getting played in different venues or different countries? Don’t fact check that, because there’s a good chance I’m just grumpy and hate gimmicky stuff and this is how it’s been for years. Continue reading

Cincinnati Bengals Expected to Name Zac Taylor the 10th Head Coach in Franchise History

It’s been since 2003 that the Cincinnati Bengals conducted a head coaching search. I didn’t know what to expect this time around. Truth be told, I was terrified. Mike Brown is almost two decades older than he was the last time he made a decision like this so a lot of people were hoping the heirs to the Bengals’ control room, his daughter Katie and her husband Troy Blackburn, would be more influential in this round of hiring. I saw the situation playing out in two different ways: 1. Mike Brown sticks to his guns and tries to win “his way”, which means another decade and a half of sucking or 2. Troy and Katie Blackburn finally strong arm Mike Brown into making a smart decision and hire the best fit for the job, not just who Mike is familiar with. At the beginning of the process, if I had to bet my life on it, I would’ve said Hue Jackson or Vance Joseph would win the head coaching sweepstakes. That would’ve caused me to break just about every bone in my hand on every wall in my house. An organizational overall is needed, and based on reports coming out tonight, it looks like that’s what we’re finally getting.  Continue reading

If the Bengals Hire Hue Jackson or Vance Joseph, Parting Ways With Marvin Lewis Was Pointless

At this point it feels like we’re just beating a dead horse with all of the Hue Jackson rumors. Personally, I think there’s about a 10-15% chance Hue Jackson is named the 10th head coach in Bengals history. If the season ticket holders weren’t dropping faster than bottles of hair bleach in Guy Fieri’s bathroom, I would’ve set it at a 50/50 scenario. Mike Brown likes familiarity, so Hue Jackson and Vance Joseph (former Bengals DB coach) would be “logical” choices for the next head coach, but Mike Brown is smart enough to see how much the coaching decision could hit his wallet if it doesn’t win back the fan base.

Despite What You’re Reading Today, Marvin Lewis Did Not Endorse Hue Jackson as the Bengals New Head Coach

If you’ve been on Twitter today or paid any attention to the news coming out of Cincinnati, you were probably led to believe part of Marvin Lewis’ final day as the Cincinnati Bengals head coach was spent endorsing his buddy Hue Jackson for the position he vacated when he and Mike Brown “came to an agreement” that it was time to part ways.
