The Orange and Black Insider Bengals podcast: Kings of the Jungle

Are the Bengals better or worse off with AJ McCarron still on the roster? Should we be encouraged or discouraged by the close win over the Colts? We talk about these and other topics on this week’s OBI episode!

Even though the Bengals are sitting at just 3-4 right now, there are a number of facets in which to breed optimism. They are coming off of a must-win conference game and the AFC postseason picture seems to be wide open at the moment.

On this week’s episode of the Orange and Black Insider, we welcomed guest co-host, Cody Tewmey. Many around these parts know him for his Cincy Jungle contributions over the years, as well as his work as a draft analyst.

Here are some of the topics we discussed on this week’s episode:

  • Should the Bengals have looked at veteran players in the trade who could have helped them out immediately?
  • Is Cincinnati actually better off with McCarron on the roster since they are in the playoff picture at the moment?
  • Should we be encouraged or discouraged by the Bengals’ close win over a struggling Colts team?
  • What does Cincinnati need to do to get past a stout Jaguars defense in Week 9?

We also discussed a number of listener questions were addressed on this week’s episode. Join us live every episode on YouTube and here at Cincy Jungle!
