Bengals 2016 season awards: Most Improved Player of the Year

Bengals 2016 season awards: Most Improved Player of the Year

Though the Bengals haven’t had the amount of production they have hoped for in recent draft classes, some young players really stepped up this year. As the 2016 season wore on and injuries piled up for the Cincinnati Bengals, young players on the roster saw increased time on the field. Free agency attrition also played a role in some players who were previously buried on the depth chart getting more snaps than they had before. The "Most Improved Player" season award is similar to the "Comeback Player of the Year" in that it gauges year-to-year performance. However, the former is more...

Bengals wide receiver corps was an unlikely bright spot in 2016

Bengals wide receiver corps was an unlikely bright spot in 2016

Despite a rough 2016 offseason, the Bengals’ wide receiver corps still looks great a season later. One of the biggest stories of the Bengals’ 2016 offseason was the team’s inability to re-sign either of their two top free agent receivers, Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu. Jones cashed out with a $40 million dollar deal over five years with the Detroit Lions while Sanu received $32.5 million over five years from the Falcons. In addition, the Bengals cut Mario Alford and Brandon Tate in the weeks leading up to the season, freeing up a total of four open spots at the wide receiver...

AP 2016 NFL All-Pro team includes no Bengals players

6-9-1 does not translate to having All-Pro recognition on your NFL roster. The Associated Press has announced their 2016 NFL All-Pro team, selected by a national panel of 50 media members. The teams include three rookies, three first-time first teamers, and zero Bengals players on the first or second team. Only 14 of the 32 NFL teams are represented in the AP’s All-Pro team. The three rookies include Ezekiel Elliott, Tyreek Hill and Jack Conklin. The other first timers include Matt Ryan, Von Miller, David Johnson, Travis Kelce, Vic Beasley, Sean Lee, Matthew Slater, Damon Harris, Marcus...

Marvin Lewis wraps up 2016 season by talking players through frustration

Marvin Lewis wraps up 2016 season by talking players through frustration

Part of a coach’s job is to help players work through frustration when things don’t work out. In 2016, very little worked out for the Bengals. There is no need to explain how bad the 2016 season was for the Bengals. We were all there, we all saw the Bengals’ collapse from a franchise-best record with plenty of promise in 2015 to an embarrassing 6-9-1 record in 2016. As Bengals fans, we have experienced this before and we know how to handle it. It’s frustrating, but we know all about the process of figuring out what went wrong and how to fix it. But, for many Bengals players, this...

Who Bengals fans should root for in the 2017 NFL playoffs

Who Bengals fans should root for in the 2017 NFL playoffs

With the Bengals not in the playoffs this year, who is the most likeable team for Cincinnati fans to support? Even though the Bengals aren’t in the playoffs this year, I’ll still be watching as 12 teams battle it out for the chance to hoist the Lombardi Trophy. Why? Because I love football and the offseason is really long. You forget during the NFL season how much you miss football during the offseason. Seriously, the offseason is REALLY long. So, if I’m going to watch, I’ll need a rooting interest, right? Here are the 12 playoff teams in order of their seeding: AFC: New England...

Was Rex Burkhead’s game against the Ravens the best by a Bengals RB in 2016 season?

Was Rex Burkhead’s game against the Ravens the best by a Bengals RB in 2016 season?

Rex Burkhead rushed for 119 yards against the Ravens with a pair of touchdowns. Rex Burkhead, like Giovani Bernard, was drafted by the Bengals in the 2013 NFL Draft. But the two Bengals running backs experienced very different paths during their first three seasons clad in the orange and black stripes of a Bengals’ uniform. In his first three seasons, Bernard had touched the ball 640 times, and had averaged more than 1,000 yards from scrimmage in each of his first three seasons. Meanwhile, Burkhead had a mere 30 touches to his credit, averaging less than 60 total yards from scrimmage per...

Film Room: Bengals offense finishes season in impressive fashion

Film Room: Bengals offense finishes season in impressive fashion

Rex Burkhead led a Bengals attack that Baltimore just couldn’t handle 2016 wasn’t anything close to what Bengals fans were hoping for, especially after coming off of a year that posted a franchise-high mark in regular season wins. However, Rex Burkhead, in his first start as an NFL running back, made sure to send the crowd home happy to start off 2017. The offense just looked efficient, even without premier receiving options like A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert. But in addition to making fans happy, Burkhead also likely earned himself a big pay day in the coming months as he enters...

The BRB Staff predicts Week 16’s Houston Texans and Cincinnati Bengals matchup on Christmas Eve at NRG Stadium. After all of 2016’s ups and downs, the Texans control their own destiny heading into their final two games of the season (and really have controlled their own destiny for a while now)... but of course, it didn’t have to be this hard. What if Tom Savage hadn’t had an infection? What if... well, let’s not do that here.

Texans-Bengals Preview: Four Things To Watch

Texans-Bengals Preview: Four Things To Watch

A.J. Green is a top receiver and an athletic freak, so just who do the Texans cover him with? In a week where there has been a big upheaval on offense, we take on the Cincinnati Bengals with a chance to possibly secure our playoff position (if the Jaguars beat the Titans). We've had some good games against the Bengals recently, notably another T.J. Yates led victory on Monday Night Football last season. The Bengal Killer himself is not Houston’s starting quarterback this time round, so here are four other things to watch instead: 1. Offensive Sync If you hadn't heard, Tom Savage is...

Several members of the Steelers take shots at Bengals on social media after their 24-20 win

The Pittsburgh Steelers won their 5th straight game after beating the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 15. After the game players had a lot to say, about a lot of things, including the Bengals. The Pittsburgh Steelers don’t like the Cincinnati Bengals. Some might say the word hate, but whatever you want to call it, it is a strong disdain for one another. Even in Week 15, the Steelers 24-20 win was chippy from start to finish, and Vontaze Burfict always seemed to be involved. Either way, the Steelers got the last laugh as they eliminated the Bengals from playoff contention, and will play for the...
