The Orange and Black Insider Bengals podcast: Bye-bye October

On this week’s episode, we look at a number of topics, including the piling up of injuries, Hue Jackson and our doling out of midseason awards.

Even though the Cincinnati Bengals are on a break this week, that doesn’t mean that the OBI crew is resting! We had a busy episode this week, as the team prepares to enter a treacherous last half of the season.

Here are some of the topics John Sheeran and I discussed this week, as the Bengals rest up on their bye:

  • What are the takeaways from the roller coaster win over the Buccaneers?
  • Was the furious comeback by Tampa Bay strictly because of the Bengals’ internal issues, or that they were surprised by a quarterback change in the middle of the game?
  • What is the impact of Carl Lawson’s season-ending injury going forward?
  • Should the Bengals have made a move before the trade deadline?
  • Using hindsight, keeping Brandon LaFell may have actually helped the team right now.
  • Who are the midseason award winners?
  • How do we think the Bengals will fare the rest of the season?

Plus, we take a bunch of great listener questions. Our thanks to the listeners and to those who submitted questions! Join is live every episode here at Cincy Jungle or on YouTube and give us your questions to be answered on the air!
