Zimmer Speaks His Mind On the Bengals Defense

Mike Zimmer and the Bengals didn’t have a good season last year on defense. The Bengals defensive coordinator is taking the stance that the team has made strides, and spoke about it in a piece on Cincinnati.com. “I’m not worried one iota about the offense, we’ve got our own closet to clean up,” Zimmer said […]

Cincinnati Chilly?

As Bengals fans beg for change, particularly on offense, head coach Marvin Lewis and owner Mike Brown have been largely mum on any potential moves.  While both promised changes in some form, neither would state how far they would go, even suggesting that the staff may undergo only subtle changes. So far, the only news […]

News & Ramblings

It’s been a busy post-season finale week in the Queen City, and there’s a lot to talk about:  After what Joe Reedy and others are calling one of the worst press conferences in sports history, Mike Brown relinquished virtually nothing of substance and Marvin Lewis towed the company line with regard to personnel decisions, scouting, […]

The Gods Hate Stripes

As Marvin Lewis approached the lectern to deliver his muted post-game comments, it was clear to me that he had the look of a defeated man.  Not just defeated on the field of play, but defeated in spirit.

Fins Spook Bengals, 22-14

 Another Sunday, another disappointment for the Bengals, as they let a 14-6 lead slip away and choked on more offensive ineptitude and defensive breakdowns in a 22-14 home loss to the Dolphins today.  The Bengals started the game well, with an impressive 15-play, 86-yard drive to start the game capped by Carson Palmer’s 8-yard TD […]

Monday Postmortem Reactions: Bengals-Falcons

Here are some random ramblings after digesting Cincinnati’s third loss in a row: What the Hell, D?  Mike Zimmer’s vaunted defense was supposed to be the savior this year.  They carried the Bengals’ inept offense all season last year, and stifled opposing playmakers with aggressiveness and discipline.  This year, however, the defense has read too […]

Bengals Kick Tires On Adalius Thomas

Joe Reedy reports that the Bengals had several free agents in for try-outs on Wednesday, including former Raven and Patriot OLB Adalius Thomas. The bye week is a naturally good time to evaluate street free agents that could help the club, and Thomas’ pass rushing abilities have to appeal to the Bengals as they rank […]
