The first snaps of actual football in 2021 are about to be played and we’re going to get our first looks at this year’s Bengals squad. To kick off the big preseason Week 1 festivities, we conducted a live Q and A and fielding your questions!

You can always get them to us a number of ways:

  • In one of four live comment threads: in the above-embedded YouTube video’s chat, the comment section below in this post, on Cincy Jungle’s Facebook page or via the Cincy Jungle and Orange and Black Insider Twitter accounts.
  • Call/Text (949) 542-6241.
  • Email

We fielded quite a few this week and, to no surprise, the offensive line was a focal point of the questions. On tap this week:

  • What are we making of how Jackson Carman and D’Ante Smith are looking at the respective guard spots in practice?
  • Who will be the starting five offensive linemen this weekend and what’s the mindset behind that configuration?
  • Which Bengals player would we be willing to trade to get offensive line help?
  • What does Thaddeus Moss have to do in the preseason to ensure he makes the final roster?
  • We take a look at the Jessie Bates contract situation and note some inconsistencies in the Bengals’ offseason messaging and approach.
  • What’s some of our go-to grub when we watch Bengals games?
  • And more!
