This week at Paul Brown Stadium actual football is being played, well, practiced is more like it. The 2014 Bengals gathered down at the PBS practice fields and weight facilities while one of their marquee players is missing in action. Pro-Bowl tight end Jermaine Gresham is the only player not attending the voluntary workouts. He is under no obligation to attend these workouts and activities. However, he is in a contract year and it does send a weird message to the rest of your teammates who are all working hard this week. Would you want to be the ONLY one not there? Who knows, maybe Gresh has a perfectly valid reason for not being there. After all, it is "voluntary".

On this week's show:

We're talking about practice! That's right OTA's kicked off this week and we opened up the discussion with the absence of Jermaine Gresham. We also admired 1st round draft pick Darqueze Dennard practicing despite not being under contract. #ballsy

Anthony boldly predicts the starting offensive line for September and firmly believes that newly drafted center Russell Bodine will be your starter. What say you?

We also discuss Benjarvus Green-Ellis taking third team reps at running back, Marshall Newhouse at LT and also the return game in Special Teams has been missing that game changing X-factor.

Doc Ox called in to get our take on Pro Football Focus calling AJ Green "overrated". Anthony, Mickey and I both believe that there is no way AJ Green should be 97th on this list.

After the show wrapped we again had a blast on the "After Party". We were joined via Google+ Hangout by Kurt Campbell in Asheville, NC and much to our surprise at the end of the night, the one and only JUNGLEJOHN called in to discuss his thoughts on the Bengals. It was great to finally put a voice to the screenname. Did you miss the live show? Do you want access to the "After Party"?
