What Can Each Bengals LB Improve Upon in 2018?

The Bengals have some hard-hitting linebackers, but many of them have their flaws. Here’s what each one can do to improve this upcoming season. When you put the words “linebacker” and “Bengals” together, everyone automatically points to the hard hitting Vontaze Burfict. Yes, Burfict to me embodies the tough grit of Cincinnatians, but he isn’t […] What Can Each Bengals LB Improve Upon in 2018? - Stripe Hype - Stripe Hype - A Cincinnati Bengals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Will the Bengals Keep Any UDFAs at Linebacker?

The Bengals have four undrafted free agents all vying to be the next Vontaze Burfict – a UDFA who becomes an established starter. The Bengals linebacking core has some established veterans, but there is potential for an unheralded prospect to make the final...

George Iloka’s release doesn’t make sense

George Iloka’s release doesn’t make sense

The Cincinnati Bengals announced that they were releasing George Iloka. We’re still trying to figure out why. According to reports, the Cincinnati Bengals are releasing starting free safety George Iloka. Wow. A source told ESPN the move was related to his performance in 2017. A Bengals source said the team wasn’t happy with how George Iloka played last year, which was pretty clear when they tried to pursue Kurt Coleman at the NFL combine. The Bengals went after him hard but he signed with the Saints. A source told me the Bengals indicated the move was for financial reasons, but as for...

Jeff Driskel still looks like Bengals’ best option at backup QB

Jeff Driskel still looks like Bengals’ best option at backup QB

Driskel improved the more he played in his first game as the second-string quarterback. After the hints that third-year quarterback Jeff Driskel would be getting a chance to play behind the first-team offensive line, Driskel did in fact replace Andy Dalton against the Cowboys with the starting line still out there late in the third quarter. But things didn’t go right immediately like they did last week. Driskel’s first pass was a completion to Tyler Boyd, but resulted in Boyd fumbling and the Cowboys recovering. After that, the Bengals protection issues continued and the offense had...

Bengals Fans Annoyed By First Team’s Slow Start

After getting blanked by the Cowboys in the first half, Bengals fans rightly complained about the starters’ terrible showing in Dallas. I put a couple tweets and Facebook post sending out updates about the game, and there was definitely some frustration in the comments. After scoring no points in the first half and just a […] Bengals Fans Annoyed By First Team’s Slow Start - Stripe Hype - Stripe Hype - A Cincinnati Bengals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

5 winners and 6 losers from Bengals vs. Cowboys

Some of the teams’ biggest names faltered in big ways on Saturday night. However, depth shined as the team won its second consecutive preseason game. After such a promising start to the 2018 season in the form of the Bengals’ preseason-opening win over the Bears, Cincinnati had a crash landing back to reality in Dallas. The first-team offense was a mess and mistakes plagued the rest of the units throughout the game. Thankfully, the backups helped carry Cincinnati to a 21-13 win that featured a 21-3 run to finish the game after the starters went down 10-0. Though it’s hard to take...

Bengals starters meaninglessly falter while backups pick up the slack vs. Cowboys

It was a struggle early, but the Bengals showed their depth as the backups and third-stringers helped stabilize a poor performance by the starters. Well, that wasn’t good. Nah, more like “ew.” Gross. Find an outhouse (or a porta potty, as the millennials call it), one that’s especially ripe. Remove your hat with the perfectly bent brim, and then dunk your head in the hole. Yes, that hole. It would still be less disgusting than what we witnessed on Saturday. For all the credit Cincinnati earned last week against the Bears, the team lost it Saturday against the Cowboys. There’s...

Bengals up and down (but mostly down) in 21-13 win vs. Cowboys

Jeff Driskel led a come from behind victory for the Bengals for the second week in a row. After hosting the Bears at home, the Bengals hit the road to face the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, Texas on Saturday night. The Bengals probably left wishing they could have played the Bears again. Cincinnati came out and punted on its first three drives; they didn’t even reach a first down until the second quarter. Once the backups entered the game, however, the pendulum swung the other way. Jeff Driskel and Matt Barkley led the offense to all 21 of the Bengals’ points on the evening, while the...

Bengals lose Davontae Harris to knee injury vs. Cowboys

Harris was quickly ruled out after going down with a knee injury. The Bengals have lost Davontae Harris to a knee injury. It happened in the second quarter of Cincinnati’s preseason game vs. the Cowboys, as Harris was injured on special teams late in the quarter. He was able to walk off the field and be examined by trainers, and the team quickly announced he was out for the rest of the game with a knee injury. That’s usually a bad sign, and it’s the last thing Harris needs is a serious injury. He’s already in a tight roster battle with Josh Shaw, Keivarae Russell and Darius...
