Bengals Staff In Flux

Today word came out that former Bengals offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski was hired as the new QB coach in Atlanta.  Bratkowski replaces Bill Musgrave, who is the new OC in Minnesota, and will coach Matt Ryan under Falcons OC Mike Mularkey.  Mularkey and Bratkowski worked together in Pittsburgh under Bill Cowher.  Bengal fans might remember […]

T.O. Blasts Bratkowski

All I can do is go with the plays that are called and […]

Bengals Win Despite Themselves, Down Toothless Panthers 20-7

Despite their best efforts to try and give the game away, the Bengals were able to squeak out a 20-7 decision today over the young and disheveled Carolina Panthers.  At times it seemed that the Bengals wanted to give Panthers rookie QB Jimmy Clausen every possible opportunity to win his first NFL start.
