Our Bengals Blog has a new home

Our Cincinnati Bengals blog has a new home. We are excited to officially merge with today. Click here for our new Bengals Blog Home Page.

The Bengals had the most cap space in the NFL this off-season, but failed to add any major impact players. This is not a bad thing for a young, improving team. The Bengals focused on re-signing key players such as; Rey Maualuga and Micheal Johnson, while they watched the Ravens and Steelers lose key players. Behind Andy Dalton, A.J. Green and Geno Atkins, the Bengals look poised to make a run at the AFC North Title.

The Bengals Will Be A Wild Card Team

The AFC North is going to be a tough division this season. The Bengals and Ravens are both expected to have great teams. The Steelers are kind of up in the air and the Browns have improved a little as well. Who will finish at the top of the division? Read on to find out.

2. Cincinnati Bengals: The Bengals bounced back last season and made it to the wild card round of the playoffs only to lose to the Jets. The Bengals added Terrell Owens to their roster this season to help them improve and go further into the playoffs. Carson Palmer has a great arm and he will be able to show it off this season with two receivers that can certainly stretch the field. Chad Ochocinco and Owens may be the best one-two punch at the wide receiver position this season. This is the Bengals year to make a run for the Super Bowl. The reason, Ochocinco and Owens aren’t getting any younger. As the years go by these guys are going to start to decline. Owens is 36-years-old, but he has the body of a 30-year-old, but who knows how long his legs will last? Ochocinco is 32 and should have his speed for the next two years at least. Cedric Benson will give the receiving corp. a break. Benson had a breakout season last year, rushing for over 1,200 yards and averaging 4.1 yards per carry. If Benson has the same sort of year as last season the Bengals offense will be scary.
The Bengals offense will have to be scary good because their defense is just middle of the line. The two biggest standouts on the defense is cornerbacks Jonathan Joseph and Leon Hall. Hall and Joseph each had six interceptions last season. Other than the corners, the rest of the defense is just so-so. Saying all of this, I think the Bengals are more talented than last season, but I think they will be one game worse because of their tough schedule. The Bengals should finish at 9-7.

Zimmer says he believes in Pacman

Cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones reportedly is close to a deal to play for the Cincinnati Bengals this season. The team’s defensive coordinator said he doesn’t believe Jones will be a distraction for the defending AFC North champions.

A league source told the NFL Network that one of Jones’ representatives, Ray Savage, had several conversations with the Bengals during the cornerback’s visit with Cincinnati on Tuesday, and the sides have the nucleus of a multiyear deal in place.

Savage and the Bengals expect to put the details to paper this week, according to the NFL Network, and Jones should join the team’s offseason program Monday.

A contract hasn’t been signed as of Thursday, however. The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that Jones and the Bengals are still negotiating performance incentives and conduct clauses in the contract.

Owens meeting with Bengals

Terrell Owens headed to Cincinnati on Tuesday to see if the Bengals are interested in adding him to their stalled-out passing game.

Receiver Chad Ochocinco has been lobbying for the Bengals to sign Owens since the end of last season, when the Bengals’ passing game lacked a deep threat.

The newspaper reported that Owens had dinner with the coaching staff Tuesday night and would visit the Bengals offices on Wednesday.

Owens told WKRC-TV in Cincinnati that he would welcome playing with Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer.

The 36-year-old had tweeted earlier in the day that he was on his way to Cincinnati from Los Angeles.

“En route [at] Natti land!!” Owens tweeted. “i’ll let u guys know how the mtg went! Cn’t go 2 bad considering the pursuit of tht Lombardi shiny thing!!”

Palmer-to-Ochocinco connection helps Bengals clinch North title

The head coach was dry as he ran off the field after clinching a title — no celebratory sideline dousing. Players’ eyes were dry, too — all the tears had been wrung out.

In their finest moment, the Cincinnati Bengals didn’t act like champions. Maybe it was the ugly way they won. Maybe those tearful practices and wrenching eulogies had something to do with it as well.

Either way, they were in the playoffs.

Carson Palmer’s touchdown pass to Chad Ochocinco completed a 98-yard drive in the closing minutes Sunday, sending Cincinnati to a 17-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs that clinched the AFC North title five days after the Bengals buried teammate Chris Henry.

They wore the receiver’s No. 15 on their helmets and their hearts.

“I’m not jumping for joy or glee, just thinking about 15 once that clock hits zero,” Ochocinco said. “That was everybody’s mindset, to go out and win this one for him.”

The Bengals (10-5) reached the playoffs for only the second time in the past 19 years after dealing with Henry’s death. His wooden locker stall still has his shoulder pads resting on the top shelf, an assortment of shoes on the bottom rack and his helmet hanging from the side — almost as though he would show up at any moment and suit up.

Bengals-Johnson union imminent?

Former Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson was en route to Cincinnati on Monday and, barring a last-minute breakdown, he expects to sign with the AFC North-leading Bengals, a source familiar with the negotiations told ESPN’s Michael Smith.

A deal, if consummated, is expected to be for the prorated league minimum. Coach Marvin Lewis said Monday that Johnson would be fourth on the team’s depth chart at running back.

The Bengals, along with several other teams, first expressed interest in Johnson last week as depth behind Cedric Benson, who suffered a hip injury in Sunday’s 18-12 victory at Pittsburgh.

Benson might be available to play Sunday in Oakland, Lewis said, adding that the team’s interest in Johnson isn’t related to Benson’s injury.

WR Henry has season-ending surgery

Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chris Henry will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his broken left forearm.

Coach Marvin Lewis said Monday that Henry will be placed on injured reserve this week, ending his season.

He broke the forearm on his only catch Sunday during a 17-7 win over Baltimore that kept the Bengals (6-2) in first place in the AFC North.

Henry is in the final year of his contract with the Bengals, who let him go after his fifth arrest following the 2007 season.

Notes: Smith status; Ocho package; Henry profile

Offensive line coach Paul Alexander came off the practice field Thursday choosing not to discuss the status of rookie right tackle Andre Smith but the impact of veteran Scott Kooistra, cut Tuesday to make room for fullback Fui Vakapuna.

“Tough. For seven years he played his guts out,” Alexander said. “You lose versatility. He played four spots (both tackles and guards), he’s very reliable and a hard-try guy.”

Alexander wouldn’t rule out Kooistra coming back when the numbers are kinder, but the only time he was active were the two games left guard Nate Livings was hurt. With none of the backups not near Kooistra’s versatility, the club has to think twice before activating Smith.

“We’ve got young guys and a young guy typically learns one spot,” Alexander said. “The only guy who (played more than one) as a rookie was (left tackle Andrew) Whitworth. There’s no solution.”

Unlike seasons past, Bengals earn attention

I grew up a Cincinnati Bengals fan, but lost interest over the years because I always felt owner Mike Brown treated the club as if it were his personal fantasy football team.

Why spend money on a general manager or a squadron of scouts when that would only take away some of the satisfaction of compiling a roster yourself and competing for the high stakes of the NFL?

Nevermind that they haven’t won since facemasks were fastened to helmets, the streamlined operation meant more fun for Brown as he engaged in his hobby at our expense.

But the Bengals’ 5-2 start has gotten my attention. Carson Palmer is still one of the best quarterbacks in the league and he has surprised me with his mobility. After tanking last season, Chad Ochocinco appears committed this year (maybe the Bengals were right in not caving to his trade demands).
