Bengals again miss the cut for Forbes’ 50 most valuable sports franchises

Bengals again miss the cut for Forbes’ 50 most valuable sports franchises

The Bengals’ continued struggles keep hurting their overall value. The Bengals gained approximately $255 million in revenue from the $8+ billion the NFL made over the past season, which primarily came from the league’s TV contracts and the increase (yes, increase) in viewership for primetime games. Every organization got a big slice of the pie, and every one of them increased their overall value, which explains why the Bengals did not make Forbes’ top 50 most valuable sports franchises for the second year in a row. The list is composed of 29 NFL teams and 21 organizations from the...

USA Today projects the worst record imaginable for the Bengals

USA Today projects the worst record imaginable for the Bengals

A repeat of 2017 is the last thing this franchise needs. With the 2018 NFL season approaching, several outlets are starting to unveil their win-loss predictions for all 32 NFL teams. The latest is USA Today Sports, which projects the Bengals to endure yet another 7-9 campaign. Cincinnati Bengals (7-9): Their situation mirrors Baltimore’s with a quarterback and coach fighting to prove themselves amid a minefield schedule. At least the offensive line was upgraded. I would argue this is the worst possible record the Bengals could have in 2018 for a variety of reasons. The most obvious is...

Ickey Woods praises Joe Mixon, who has slimmed down this offseason

Ickey Woods praises Joe Mixon, who has slimmed down this offseason

“He has the ability to do what James Brooks did.” The Bengals have big things planned for Joe Mixon. Entering his second NFL season, Mixon is primed to be the bell-cow back after a promising rookie season that saw him record 336 total yards over his final four games. He did so while splitting time with Giovani Bernard, though the expectation is Mixon will be the featured back in Year 2. Mixon has responded to this by slimming down this offseason in hopes of being a more complete three-down back. In an interview with Bengals.com, Mixon detailed his offseason workouts that have helped...

Top 10 Bengals in the Marvin Lewis era: No. 6, Carson Palmer

Top 10 Bengals in the Marvin Lewis era: No. 6, Carson Palmer

Though his career with the team ended on a sour note, the former No. 1 overall pick is still one of the best players the team has had in the modern era. When Marvin Lewis arrived in Cincinnati back in 2003, the Bengals had been clamoring for a franchise quarterback since Boomer Esiason was run out of town back in 1992. David Klingler, Neil O’Donnell, Akili Smith and Jon Kitna couldn’t fit the bill, so Lewis looked for a clean slate at the position 15 years ago. As it turns out, the then-new coach used a No. 1 overall pick at the position in Heisman Trophy winner, Carson Palmer....

It’s now or never for Tyler Boyd in Cincinnati

It’s now or never for Tyler Boyd in Cincinnati

Tyler Boyd is entering his third season, and he needs to build off a strong finish to the 2017 season to stick around long-term, or else, other young receivers will pass him by. Tyler Boyd finished the 2017 with one of the most memorable playing in Bills history. On 4th down, he took a pass 49 yards for the game-winning touchdown. This play knocked the Ravens out of the playoffs, and ended the NFL’s longest playoff drought for Buffalo. However, what exactly did he do for the Bengals last season? He only caught 22 passes for 225 yards with two touchdowns. 130 of those yards came in the...
