Since 2003, I've been writing about the Cincinnati Bengals, starting at BengalsZone before being recruited to kickoff a Bengals blog for SB Nation. I became the primary blogger, senior editor if you will because that sounds really cool, when we launched Cincy Jungle.

I've been a contributor to The League, a Washington Post panel of sports writers and players that opine the latest headlines. I've also contributed to and SB Nation's NFL Page. Also a PFWA member.
