Andy Dalton Benched. Ryan Finley Era in Cincinnati Begins

I say the “Ryan Finley Era” hoping its just the remainder of the 2019 season, meaning Joe Burrow is under center for the Bengals in 2020. Sure, if the offensive line is still a train wreck and we don’t want Burrow to end up with a van he has to drive with his teeth, let the Ryan Finley Era carry into 2020 as well. Continue reading

CBS Not Knowing Who Bengals Owner Mike Brown Is Might be the Most Perfect Thing Ever

Has there ever been a more perfect example of how terrible things are for the Bengals right now than this? I mean, I’m not saying every NFL fan should know what every NFL owner looks like, but I’m willing to bet I could go 90% in the NFL Owner Match Game for teams with a single, forward facing owner.

This just lets me know that nobody in that production truck was from Cincinnati, because well all know what that mother fucker looks like around here. He haunts our dreams and has crushed our souls since childhood.

The side by side comparison makes it even better. Continue reading

The Cincinnati Bengals Traded Up (Yes, You Read That Correctly) to Draft QB Ryan Finley

I fully expected the Bengals to address the backup QB situation in this year’s draft, and possibly even draft someone who could replace Dalton when his time is up in Cincinnati. I thought Haskins in the first round or any of the remaining guys in the second round would’ve been too much considering all of the other needs they had, but it sounds like they got their guy today by trading up to pick-104 to draft Ryan Finley out of NC State.

It sounds like Ryan Finley was their guy all along and he was the only QB they were interested in this whole time despite mock drafts tying them to Haskins in the first round.

And in the eyes of Zac Taylor, they traded up for a good reason. Continue reading

Tyler Eifert Decides He Wants to Win a Super Bowl in Cincinnati

This is very good news, people. Earlier in the week the Bengals announced they signed C.J. Uzomah to a three-year deal and a lot of folks on the ‘ol Twitter machine thought this might mean Eifert was going to part with Cincinnati. Well, WRONG.

Before the former Fighting Irish star got started on his St. Paddy’s day celebrations, the Pro Bowler’s one-year deal to return to Cincinnati was announced. Continue reading

For Some Inexplicable Reason, the Bengals Signed Bobby Hart to a $21M Deal

If you were expecting the Bengals to make a big free agency splash today, well you got what you wanted. It just probably wasn’t the splash you were hoping for.

In the words of the great Bob Uecker: “Obviously Taylor’s thinking… I don’t know what the hell he’s thinking…..”  Continue reading
