NFL – Marvelous Marvin Lewis

A Marvin Lewis post-game press conference these days is about as excruciating as a root canal. Although the 58-year old Bengals head coach appears soft spoken, unassuming, and contemplative when speaking to the media, I don’t think I can believe much of what he says anymore. You see, Lewis is entering the final year of his contract without an extension. It’s like he’s piloting a plane with no landing gear or parachutes. His fate is solely dependent on the team’s immediate success, so he’s relegated to speaking mainly in the truisms and platitudes of someone on the chopping block.

NFL – Ravenous

Bengals fall at home to Ravens to open season – Photo by Brendon Miller

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore. While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, as of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.

The Baltimore Ravens’ 20-0 thrashing of the Cincinnati Bengals was as horrific as any Edgar Allen Poe narrative. It was literal, real, and exactly what the Bengals did not need. For a team predicted by many to be no better than .500 by year end, every win speaks volumes for a fanbase clapping, rapping, and tapping into the bottomless well of early season optimism.

What a difference a year makes. This time last year, “Boom” Williams was preparing for his junior season as the featured running back in Kentucky’s redesigned offense. Coming off two-a-day fall practices, the talented four-star recruit and his Wildcat teammates were eagerly awaiting their much-anticipated season opener against Southern Miss.

Bengals – Two and Done

The Cincinnati Bengals’ preseason schedule should be two games and done. I say that because few things in life are more mundane than NFL preseason contests. Watching your third-string quarterback handing off to your fourth-string running back is about exciting as watching paint dry, grass grow, or looking at endless pictures of your baby nephew. The four-game preseason is essentially two games too long. After beating the Buccaneers 23-12 and losing to the Chiefs 30-12, the Bengals are now 1-1. I’ve seen enough already, so why can’t the real games begin? Continue reading Bengals – Two and Done

Welcome to the Johngle

For people growing up in Kentucky, it’s always been difficult choosing an NFL team to root for. With no professional franchises residing within our state, fans have had to pick their football favorites based on a number of arbitrary factors. Back in their heyday, the Dallas Cowboys were “America’s Team” and had a legion of followers throughout the Bluegrass. Everyone remembers at least one friend whose love for the Cowboys bordered on the obnoxious. Likewise, the Pittsburgh Steelers and their “Steel Curtain” following often rivaled Dallas fans in their arrogance and boisterousness. To this day, I still can’t stand the mention of Hollywood Henderson or Mean Joe Greene. Continue reading Welcome to the Johngle
