The Orange and Black Insider Bengals podcast: Suspending hope

There is a lot of craziness surrounding the Bengals as they get oh-so-close to Week 1 of the regular season. Will Vontaze Burfict win his appeal on his suspension? We also examine how the roster is shaping up with some recent moves.

Unfortunately, some big news on the suspension of a star player has brought a bit of a cloud over the Cincinnati Bengals. While there have been positives to many facets of the team’s preseason performances, a more-than-questionable banning of linebacker Vontaze Burfict for three games by the NFL has overshadowed things of late.

On this week’s Orange and Black Insider, Scott Schulze and I talk about the Burfict suspension and what it means for the team going forward. Will the Bengals be able to get through the tough first three games successfully without No. 55?

We also sifted through the ashes of another preseason loss to the Redskins. Still, even though Cincinnati ended up in the loss column, there was a lot to like from the team’s performance. The young pass-rushers impressed once again, while the first-team offense looked much better than the first two games.
