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

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

Cam Atkinson Took a Puck to the Face in Warmups, Misses Action in Blue Jackets’ Fourth Straight Loss

I really have nothing good to say about the Blue Jackets right now. What seemed like a promising season with a chance to actually make a run in the playoffs has quickly been derailed by a pair of Russians. After blowing a late lead tonight in Winnipeg, the Jackets have lost four straight and have missed some prime opportunities to separate themselves from the Washington Capitals during a seven game losing streak of their own. Columbus’ two-time Vezina Trophy winner has his head so far up his own ass worrying about his new contract that he can’t be bothered to stop a puck and one of the NHL’s most lethal offensive weapons can’t decide where he wants to play the rest of his career and is letting his agent play bullshit games with the CBJ’s front office.

Now the Jackets have lost four in a row, Tortorella refuses to play Anthony Duclair even with a short bench and the Jackets find themselves stuck in Stanley Cup Purgatory where they can’t decide if it’s best to “go for it” or get what we can for Artemi Panarin and Sergei Bobrovsky to avoid losing them without any return at the end of 2019.

Just when you think the Jackets couldn’t have any more bad luck, shit like this happens. Continue reading
