Hue Jackson is officially back with the Cincinnati Bengals, and Marvin Lewis is fooling us into believing that he has everything under control. We also chat about the Steelers and Le’Veon Bell being an unrestricted FA at the end of the season, and the Chiefs/Rams game being moved out of Mexico City. Our fantasy draft this week is of our favorite sports beefs, with the recent turmoil in the Warriors camp between KD and Draymond Green being the inspiration. Enjoy the show!
This week the Nati Boys discuss the Bengals’ return from the bye week, where they should be getting a few key players back from injury but also find themselves without A.J. Green for several weeks. We react to Dez Bryant signing with the Saints, who just happen to be the Bengals’ first opponent back from the bye. The Reds recently announced that they plan on wearing several throwback uniforms throughout the year, in honor of the team’s 150th anniversary. Finally, we wrap up the show with a fantasy draft of costumes and skins we’d most like to see added to Fortnite, inspired by the news that NFL uniforms will now be available within the game.
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)
The Nati Boys are back with a football heavy episode! It was cuts week on Hard Knocks, and the Bengals had a little activity of their own putting Michael Johnson on waivers. The NFL is officially back, and we give you our predictions for the divisional winners and Super Bowl Champs. Enjoy the show!
On today’s episode of the Nati Boys podcast, we talk about the excitement and staleness of a new Bengals season with the first preseason game happening this week. We also talk about the depressing Reds with all of their injuries, and we discuss the first episode of Hard Knocks with the Cleveland Browns. Our fantasy draft this week is of things we’d like to see covered in the Hard Knocks documentary style. Enjoy the show!
The Nati Boys (minus DB) are talking Bengals training camp this week as the NFL preseason is officially underway. We also discuss the MLB trade deadline, which passed earlier this week. While the Reds did make one move at the deadline, there were a few more that we expected to see, which inspired our fantasy draft of trades we’d most like to make.
Well, folks, we waited most of the summer for Adam Jones news and we finally have it. For those of you who haven’t seen the fight (view below), Adam Jones was in an altercation with an airport employee (Big Surprise). Before you comment, I understand according to authorities he was defending himself, but come on you’re Adam “PacMan” Jones, just walk away when someone gestures or yells towards you. I have a very hard time feeling bad for someone like Adam Jones who is so easily drawn into an altercation time after time year after year. His temper and inability to just walk away has not only brought him legal trouble/financial ramifications, but it has also cost the Bengals games. It should be obvious based on him still being a free agent, but I really hope the Bengals have finally moved from this clown.
