#Bengals star WR AJ Green was slated to visit foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay during the bye, sources say, as his toe swelled up. Clarity is coming soon, with everything — day-to-day, week-to-week, surgery — on the table for Green. Big appointment.
This is the definition of “not ideal”. The Bengals have fought the injury bug all season on both sides of the ball, but this seems to be the injury that will send the Bengals into a downward spiral. Tyler Boyd has been a huge success but it’s largely a product of A.J. Green drawing a lot of attention from defenses. Speedster John Ross hasn’t been able to stay on the field and they’re currently on their 428th tight end. Giovanni Bernard should be returning soon, but hopefully Joe Mixon is ready to carry the ball 60 times a game.
I was excited for the bye week because I could sit around and enjoy the games without being stressed out by the Bengals. Once again, the team that will put me in the grave before I’m 40 has decided to ruin another Sunday for me. And they’re not even playing. Figure that one out.
I’m not gonna lie, it wasn’t looking good for our captain Nick Foligno early on in the fight. Phaneuf is a pretty big guy and he appears to have studied up on Foligno’s fighting abilities because it was clear he wanted no part of standing toe-to-toe with the Blue Jackets’ fearless captain. But man, once Foligno got free..
On this weeks episode of the Nati Boys podcast, we dive into the Browns decision to oust Hue Jackson and Todd Haley, talk a little bit about the Bengals bye week, and give you our picks against the spread for the football games this weekend. For the fantasy draft this week, we pick things that were more successful than Hue Jackson’s run in Cleveland. Enjoy the show!
I’m sure by now you’re either looking forward to the 2019 fantasy football season or praying Patrick Mahomes doesn’t get hurt during your playoff run. Either way, I think we can all agree that every fantasy league has an… uhhh, let’s say “interesting” member. The hit show The League on FX and FXX was no different. If it wasn’t Taco making us laugh because he was too stoned to care about starting a full roster, it was Rafi making us laugh and want to puke at the same time. Regardless of where you’re at on the fantasy football spectrum for the remainder of the season, I think we should all take some time to appreciate Rafi. Have yourself a Wednesday, folks.
Talk about a classic “crap your pants while you’re driving home from the zoo” moment when I came across this headline at a red light (no texting/tweeting while driving in my reasonably priced luxury sedan). Mr. Feeny dying would be the saddest non-family member bad news I think I could receive. I’m not even willing to put any of my friends ahead of Mr. Feeny, because unlike my friends, Mr. Feeny was always there for me from 2-3pm on ABC Family. I don’t wanna point any fingers or call anyone out but sometimes Whitty won’t respond to my texts for up to 2 minutes after I send them. Again, not to call anyone out but did Mr. Feeny ever show up 2 minutes late during the weekdays? That’s what I thought. Continue reading →
Well, it happened, The Cleveland Browns finally decided they were done with their 9th coach in 18 years. I think it may have had something to do with his 36 losses, but who am I to speculate. The three wins seemed to be enough for Jimmy Haslam (Owner), there were some reports he wanted changes but not at the head coaching position. In the end, John Dorsey (GM) helped him come to a decision that the best direction for this team was to move on from their head coach. Hue I still love you and let’s just get this out of the way, welcome back to Who Dey Nation.
As of early this morning, the #Browns could have gone one of two ways: Make a change at OC or make a change at head coach. Owner Jimmy Haslam sounded like he wanted to keep Hue Jackson. GM John Dorsey wanted to move on. In the end, they moved on from Hue Jackson.
Moving on, In a bold attempt to reinvent themselves the Browns have named Defensive Coordinator, Gregg Williams as the interim head coach. You may remember this psycho from HBO’s Hard Knocks, where he became a show favorite because of his angry outburst during pretty much every episode. (below is one of my personal favorites). Gregg Williams and Hue Jackson are like oil water when it comes to coaching, which may be the inspiration to his promotion. Hue has always been thought of as a players coach which works for some teams, but the Browns have lacked discipline and direction since they returned to Cleveland in 1999. Williams with a more aggressive approach will attempt to change the misfortunes of one of sports longest running jokes. GOOD LUCK! (LIAM NEESON VOICE)
This week we kick off the show with a recap of last weekend’s Lakers/Rockets brawl as we discuss whether or not Rondo intentionally spit on Chris Paul and CP3’s reputation as a dirty player. We switch gears and recap the Bengals recent struggles coming off of an embarrassing Sunday Night Football performance, but we’re all confident that they can bounce back this week. We give our thoughts on the Reds’ signing of David Bell as their new manager and we provide an update on our weekly football picks. In honor of Halloween, we wrap up the show with a fantasy draft of our favorite Halloween costume ideas.
