After 50 episodes the Nati Boys are still going strong. We’re talking Bengals free agency on today’s episode and so far we’ve been pleasantly surprised. They’ve managed to resign a few key players in Eifert and Huber and filled some other holes through trades and external signings. Andre Smith and Russell Bodine have both signed elsewhere, which should ultimately lead to an improved offensive line, and there’s a new backup quarterback in town for all of the Dalton haters to start clamoring for. Finally, in honor of our 50th episode, we have a fantasy draft of things that lasted way longer than they should have.
We’re keeping things local this week as the Nati Boys kick off the show by talking about the regular season successes of the UC and Xavier men’s basketball teams. Both schools won regular season conference championships and took home a plethora of team and individual accolades. In the NFL, the Bengals decided not to use their franchise tag this year and we discuss whether or not the team’s first free agent signing will have a big impact on the upcoming season. In baseball, the Reds are struggling to find their bats as spring training gets into full swing but there have been a few bright spots with some of the teams young, up-and-coming stars. To wrap up the show we have a fantasy draft of athletes who went on to noteworthy second careers outside of sports.
The Nati Boys start off 2018 with a loaded NFL show for you! We talk Marvin’s contract extension, Carson calling it quits, #BillsMafia showing love to some Cincinnati charities, and we give you our NFL picks for Wildcard weekend. We also talk about the NCAA football playoffs, and our fantasy draft this week is people we want to replace Jon Gruden on the Monday Night Football broadcast. Enjoy the show!
The Nati Boys give you the final show of 2017 to end your year right with topics including: the Bengal’s messing up their draft position, the possible last game in the Andy Dalton and Marvin Lewis era, James Harrison heading to the Patriots, and the controversial ending to the Eagles/Raiders game. We also give you our NFL picks for the weekend, and chat a little bit about Christmas gifts given out by John Wall and other rich people. We end the show with a fantasy draft of our New Year’s resolutions. Happy 2018, enjoy the podcast!
On today’s episode of the Nati Boys podcast, we talk about Marvin Lewis’ wavering interest in coaching the team next year, and some other NFL topics including Aaron Rodgers going back on the IR, the Pittsburgh catch that wasn’t a catch and the possible return of the XFL. We also talk some NBA with Kobe’s numbers being retired, and Lavar Balls new junior basketball league. We wrap the show by getting into the holiday spirit and giving out some gifts in our fantasy draft. Enjoy the show!
Good morningGood evening Hello and welcome to another edition of Wake Up With Whitty. We’re midway through December and the unthinkable has happened. The Bengals have been officially eliminated from playoff contention. I know, I’m as shocked as you are. I could’ve sworn they’d clinched a playoff spot like three weeks ago since they’ve played so well this year. The good news is that Bengals fans can watch the last two weeks of the season without worrying about the games’ outcomes. At this point the best case for the Bengals would be to lose out in order to get the best possible draft pick, but I just can’t get on #TeamTank. It feels wrong. So I’ll continue to pull for the Bengals to win, knowing that if they don’t then they’re still going to better their draft position. It’s win-win. Or lose-lose, I’m not quite sure. Anyways, here’s Wake Up With Whitty.
The Nati Boys are keeping it short and sweet this week with NFL topics including Marvin Lewis not thinking it’s his job to motivate the team, the NFL Network sexual misconduct allegations, the Carson Wentz ACL injury and Aaron Rodgers coming back. We end the show with our NFL picks for the week and what we’re looking forward to this weekend. Enjoy!
