Bengals avoid finishing with worst record in team history behind Mixon, Dalton

CINCINNATI (WKRC) - The 2019 Bengals avoided finishing the season with the worst record in team history and if it turned out to be quarterback Andy Dalton's final start with the team as expected he at least got to go out a winner.

Not only did Bengals need to make coaching change, but time for organizational change, too

CINCINNATI (WKRC) - The decision for the Bengals to part ways with head coach Marvin Lewis is only one step toward regaining the trust of the eroding fan base, and while the next step is hiring the right coach to replace Lewis perhaps the organization should take the quantum leap of finally re-tooling everything it does. That would truly energize everyone into believing perhaps things will be… → Read More

Bengals fans deserve a change in the head coaching position

PITTSBURGH (WKRC) - Marvin Lewis' 16th season as Bengals head coach ended with yet another loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers and the only thing that should be left is for the team to announce on Monday that his services won't be retained moving forward.

Urban Meyer may not want to coach in the NFL, but the Bengals at least need to find out

CINCINNATI (WKRC) - The Bengals have to make the call, right? They have to kick the tires, correct? They have to run the idea up the flag pole, no?

Yet now that Urban Meyer is on the open market they have to at least ask… → Read More

Bengals Broncos

CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Sunday's Bengals game was a microcosm of the 2018 season: another in a recent line of poor performances and the loss of another key player to injury. Wide receiver A. J.

Several Bengals, dozens of NFL players using their cleats for a cause on Sunday

CINCINNATI (WKRC/AP) - After Nike had shipped Bengals wide receiver A. J. Green some gold cleats earlier this season he didn't want to risk the hefty fine if he wore them in a game, but Bengals assistant coach Brayden Coombs gave him a reason he could, and it's for a good cause.
