The Bengals have won a game, and then quickly got back to their losing ways against the Browns this past weekend. The Patriots have been caught filming the Bengals sideline for their upcoming matchup, and we’re not surprised. Dan and Ben both went to Reds Fest this year, and we talk about our experience there, as well as the recent Reds signings.
The Ryan Finley Experiment appears to be over in Cincinnati as the Bengals have officially announced that Andy Dalton will be back as the starting quarterback this weekend. We give our thoughts on what this means for Finley going forward and how the change may potentially impact the Bengals draft position. Also, with Thanksgiving just a day away, we take time to reflect on the things we’re all thankful for in the sports world.
Breaking news! Andy Dalton has been benched, and we’re coming at you with an emergency podcast to discuss today’s events. We have mixed feelings about the Dalton situation, and wish him nothing but the best in the future. Thank you Andy!
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 →
The Bengals are 0-7 and we’ve officially checked out. We can’t decide if we want the Bengals to try and win some games, or just lose out and grab a better draft position. Mike Brown, please sell the team. We also talk a little bit about college football, but that doesn’t last long as we wonder how the Bengals will mess up the upcoming draft picks.
With an 0-5 start the Bengals appear to be in full tank-mode, which leaves us pondering what the future holds for some of the veteran players on both sides of the ball. We’re already looking forward to how the team will manage to ruin their high draft picks in the coming years, and while he hasn’t had much to work with, nobody has been overly impressed with the start of Zac Taylor’s tenure. It’s not all doom and gloom on the gridiron though, as UC and Ohio State both had big wins this past weekend, and each team appears to be the favorite to finish on top of their respective divisions.
Now that you’re done having an anxiety attack from thinking about giving yourself an oil change, we can move on.
Don’t get too excited though, this won’t be a regular recurring blog. I don’t drive that often so it takes me a while to hit the standard 5,000-7,500 miles most vehicle manuals suggest for an ol’ swapperoo of the black sludge and overpriced filter. Some auto parts stores give you a free filter when you buy 5-quarts of oil, but these oil change places aren’t so generous. I feel bad saying that because they gave me free coffee and a bottle of water while I wait. Now I feel bad for not considering the free WiFi access they gave me (which isn’t showing up on my list of available networks, but I’m not one to complain about such things). The coffee is a little burnt, which I suspect is a result of it being brewed this morning when they opened at 8am. I don’t want to disappoint anyone that thought this might be a blog about oil changes and the different places people take their cars to get their oil changed (e.g. their parents house, dealerships, a buddy’s place or your favorite local mechanic), but I think I’ll jump into some sports while I wait on my car.
