Opinions are like Kiss albums...

...everyone has one or two and they all pretty much suck. That being said, since everyone else is chiming in on their post-season hopes and predictions, I will do the same. What are our offseason...

My Trip to Heinz

Although it wasn't the outcome I would have liked, I had a great time at Sunday's game. I was fortunate enough to have fantastic seats, 3rd row, 50 yard line right behind the Bengals bench. I was...

Steeler Fan: "You guys are gonna be scary good..."

Due to a Steeler's bye week, I actually got to watch a Bengals game--for the second week in a row. Unfortunately, living in Pittsburgh, that is rarity.  What is even more rare is to be surrounded...

Great Expectations (or Why Bengals Fans are Special)

It takes a special person to be a Bengals fan.  I’m not saying this because I’m a Bengals fan and I think I’m special, it is because I am convinced it takes a different mentality to become and, ...

Team Leaders

Even if Chad and Palmer come back for their Swan Song, it seems that both have abdicated their roles and team leaders (perhaps some will debate if they ever were, but that isn't the point).  So who...

New Coordinator, New "Identity," New Offense?

What does the hiring of Jay Gruden mean for the Bengals offense? What will our "identity" be? It seems relatively clear, given Lewis’s X and O dinner with Brad Childress, his expressed desire to...

Things I believe to be true about our offense...

Palmer is not nor will he ever be a great sprint out, hit the 10 yard out pattern and if it’s not there, check down, and if it’s not there scramble for a few yards type of QB, not his game. P...

One and one is not a bad place to be

There’s no such thing as an ugly win or a pretty loss.  The Bengals have played two of the teams which most experts have predicted to be division winners and possibly AFC Championship contenders. ...

Do we need really need a placekicker?

I have become increasingly concerned about our kicking situation.  Never in the world did I think that Dave Rayner was going to be the best option for us at kicker.  Unfortunately, Mike Nugent...

A few quick thoughts on the Eagles game.

I got to watch most of the game last night and I think Cincy folks did not, so I wanted to trot out some quick  observations on the game.  Jermaine Gersham--this kid is going to be good and a god...

Steelers-Lions Game

I had the good fortune to go to the Steelers-Lions preseason game last night. I don't know if it was televised or covered in Cincy, but I thought I'd give CincyJungle my quick assessment of the...

An Interview with Dhani Jones

+

"Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dhani Jones seems to get better with age. In 2009, he recorded the third-highest tackle total of his 9-year career (team-high 113), while far exceeding his previous high for sacks in a season (3.5). He started every regular-season game and was voted a defensive captain by his teammates."

Position battles and high hopes for next year

The most exciting thing about the position battles going on this year is what positions they are battling for.  It seems like just a few years back when position battles for the Bengals meant...

Mike Brown giving up some control?

Offensive Offense

If it wasn’t clear enough, it certainly is clear now. The Bengals have problems on offense.  The hand wringing and hair pulling have come to a new intensity since the Vikes game. So what is the...

I need this win...and some observations on how to get it

As most of you know, at least those who have read my posts, I live in Pittsburgh, and as far as I can tell I am the only Bengal fan in the city. At least the only one that is "out" as they say. ...
