Mike Nugent reacts to missed field goal, says, "You are only as good as your next kick"

Like his rough start in 2014, the once very-accurate Mike Nugent is having another less-than-stellar performance to open the 2015 season. In 2014, Nugent started the year going 5/6 in Week 1, 1/4 in Week 2, 1/2 in Week 4 and in Week 5, just about every Bengals fan was hopping on the fire Nugent bandwagon when he missed a 36-yard field goal that caused the Bengals to tie the Panthers in a high scoring 37-37 affair. It was ugly, so ugly that it was the highest scoring tie game in NFL history. As the Bengals walked into the locker room, cornerback Adam Jones was heard shouting, "we work too...

He was able to overcome his poor start and converted 16 of his next 17 attempts that season, including a 57-yarder against the Colts in the playoff game. This year, Nugent has already missed a 36-yarder against the Chargers in what...

Breaking News: Miami Dolphins fire head coach Joe Philbin

The first head coach firing of the 2015 season is here. The Miami Dolphins have fired head coach Joe Philbin. The decision to part ways with the embattled coach comes after a 27-14 loss to the New York Jets in London. However, this most recent loss was the final straw of a very long start to the season for Miami. The team had its worst loss in a home opener in franchise history, as the Bills defeated them 41-14. The Dolphins had perhaps the highest expectations for improvement in 2015, following a massive offseason highlighted by the free agency signing of Ndamukong Suh. However, the...

Was Jeremy Maclin's catch a catch: When is a catch not a catch?

The Bengals have had two questionable plays hit them in successive weeks, promoting the call... what is really a catch in the NFL? What the hell? Generically speaking, that is the customary reaction for questionable calls; whether it's something to do with the officials, coaches or a player. In younger households without children or in establishments that serve adult beverages, and depending on the severity of the complaint, you allow "what the fuck" to slip. These words slipped when Tyler Eifert's touchdown reception against the Baltimore Ravens was reversed. With two minutes remaining in...
