Ryan Finley made his NFL debut this weekend, and looked very much like a quarterback making his first NFL start. He made a few good throws but had his fair share of mistakes and it’s safe to say the Bengals still need to focus on a QB in the first round of the draft. We briefly discuss the past weekend’s LSU vs. Alabama matchup and speculate on how the Bengals are going to screw up the draft by not taking either teams’ QB.
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!
The Bengals have now showcased their ineptitude on two continents this season, and the front office/ownership have shown little-to-no desire to try and improve the team. At this point there’s not much left to say about the Bengals, so we quickly move on to more important topics: food court staples and milk shake flavors.
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.
After starting the season with a close loss in Seattle in Week 1, the Bengals absolutely had the doors blown off by the 49ers in Week 2. They looked terrible on both sides of the ball and any confidence we had in the team is now completely gone. With the Reds approaching the end of an equally disappointing season, there aren’t many bright spots in Cincinnati sports these days, although Eugenio Suarez being tied for lead in the MLB home run race at least gives us something to hang our hats on.
