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

Is Odell Beckham Jr. the First Wide Receiver to Catch a Ball With One Hand?

This may come as a surprise to you, but I’m not really the biggest Odell Beckham Jr. fan. Is it because he is a diva that has drama anywhere he goes? Is it because he wore a watch on the field just so people would talk about him and not the failure to meet Super Bowl expectations in Week 1? Is it because the media and everyone gushes over him anytime he catches a ball that wasn’t put right between the numbers?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these, you were correct. Continue reading

Eugenio Suarez Ties Galarraga’s Venezuelan Home Run Record, Joins MLB Leaders With 47 Dingers

The City of Cincinnati might be in shambles after the Bengals got bent over a barrel and shown all 50 states by the San Francisco 49ers this afternoon, but that doesn’t mean Eugenio Suarez and the Reds weren’t around to help cheer us up. While we were taking a beating on the NFL front, Suarez was busy hitting home run 46 and 47. 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

Wake Up With the Bengals First Round Pick Jonah Williams’ Highlight Video

I know drafting an offensive lineman in the first round isn’t always the sexiest pick, but the Bengals o-line has been a disaster ever since Mike Brown fucked up the Andrew Whitworth situation a few years ago. Jonah Williams appears to have everything you want in a franchise left tackle. He’s played at the highest level (Alabama, maybe you’ve heard of them) against the best talent in college and there are endless stories about his work ethic and desire to be the very best in the game.

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
