Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Anthony Costanza was cincy jungle dot com in the orange and black insider bengals podcast. I hope you are doing well. I know it's a little late for some review on this Friday evening but we're doing a little impromptu queue in a me being on the west coast. It's not so late for me but I wanted to we're we're. We're going to do a bengals mailbag feature on the on the website. We're going to we like to do the listener questions on the podcast feed so I thought I would come at you answer some questions you have leave me. Some questions in the comments section would love to hear from you as the bank bills. T- up week three going a two buffalo buffalo to know the bengals our own too so you know kind of a daunting matchup. If you will come in coming down the pike year now again you can leave your your questions comments anything you want me to kind of touch on here at. I think I'm simultaneously streaming on facebook and on a on cincy jungles facebook and on the orange black insiders youtube channel so I you know if you want want some questions answered. Leave them on either one of those you can also tweet me at C. J. Anthony or at bengals. Obi wanted to to start off with this one. I did get this tweet. A little earlier. Today was from The username is owed at at D. E. I know this may appear to be you dumb question but in context to the full season not game to game. which is it better to have on? Sunday a win or a very good performance but I don't mean finishing with a moral victory victory or heroic failure. I I understand it sound. It's weird award way but I do understand the question. I think it has to do with ten of the tanking aspect it has to do with the you know. How are we going to feel about the team. You know is a wind going to essentially hurt them at the end of the year if they WANNA get one of those high picks essay said this on this week's episode of the the the podcast if you're if you're tuned into that you know the bengals can still remain competitive. They can salvage this season and if they want to get a quarterback one of those high quarterbacks next year they can still make that happen. They can go and move up. They have to sacrifice draft capital. The thing is they have to do things that they are not traditionally. They have not been traditionally comfortable with sacrificing draft picks that is spending money that is using capital a lot of teams do this okay. Houston moved up in the draft to Shawn Watson and they were a competitive team Kansas City the same thing with Patrick the home a couple of years ago they were I think in the twenties moved all the way up to two ten or eleven whatever it was to get Patrick home so these teams can do that. Cincinnati can do that now. In terms of the question that the listener gave us about this weekend I think you WanNa have you gotta get that win. it's on the road owed. If you're GONNA do anything this season even come close to sniffing the playoffs. You GotTa get this win. You probably have to have a win next week against Pittsburgh on Monday night the Bengals don't I've said this a ton of times. The bengals don't have a home game left in September. They only had one home game and that was against the forty niners and that was an absolute disaster so oh I think for a lot of different reasons feeling good about things moving forward showing progress in and the coach is being able to get this team to improve week-to-week to not make the same mistakes. I think it's a big deal if the bengals get a win this weekend as opposed to just kind of playing well L. because usually if you lose you can point out a couple of big mistakes when you're knowing three team it kind of points to you're just not a very a good team and this new coaching staff is overseeing a team that is making error so I think for a lot of different reasons you want to see the bengals win instead of just kind of getting eating those moral victories dull Narsey. What's going on Dalton Godiva good to see man. Are we looking at getting a new kicker no I don't have to my knowledge. I don't uh I don't know that that's going to be the case. you know Randy. Bullock has been there guy and you know. There hasn't been much news on the on the kicker front in terms of you know they're bringing in competition a randy bullock being on the hot seat that sort of thing so you know. I I think if these big kicks continue to be missed by bullock then yes the bengals have brought in other The bengals brought in players to try out throughout in the early part of the season. They signed a linebacker after week one so I mean I think they're going to look at a potentially actually going to potentially get you know they're. GonNa look getting guys in here for a workout if continues to miss them kicks but for now it appears. It's randy bullock's job. He makes the kicks. He's supposed to make he misses the ones is that you're still supposed to make their tougher but in this league especially in a team that is just desperate for good things. They're a team in transition. They've got new coaches they need to they need to cling to every point opportunity possible and randy bullock his as left you know six six points on the board for the bangles over the past two weeks and that's not good that wouldn't have you look at the score last week when fuel will probably wouldn't have made a huge difference when you look at it that way but at at the time it was a critical miss. The bengals were kind of trying to climb back in the thing. There was a a two possession game at the time he misses the ball missed field goal in ball ball hooks laughed and you know that's not that's not good and then obviously a one point difference in week one one missing that kick looms large Stephen Spivey. What are the keys to the game against Buffalo Great Question to me. I think the you know there's there's basically two things you can you look at right. It's better play from the linebackers and or the defense itself especially the back the back back into the defense right the linebackers safeties have really regressed this year after Sean Williams and Jessie Bates after having really good seasons last year they they've been victimized is a pretty pretty often. I think it's because they're playing a bit further up in the box than they are used to because they need to mass those linebacker deficiencies so I mean basically you look at that area or the run game to me. It's the running game you have to get the running game going because that not not only shows that the running backs to bring productive doc but it shows a boost offensive line play and when you have a boost offensive line play obviously the running game. The passing game works all of that I think the passing yards will continue to be there. The passing place will continue to be there have been there the first two weeks you know one of the leading passers in the League in terms of yardage so I think those will be there. It's finding balance being able to use play action and you know Buffalo score some points but I'm not this isn't a Kansas City chiefs offense here so I think if the bengals were to get some yards put some points up. I think they can you know potentially win a shootout if they're able to run the ball effectively use those running backs effectively you know. I I think that like I said the passing yards will be there. It's just a matter of how that works. I'm obviously do you. WanNa see the uptick in a defensive play from week to but I think for now I think you've really gotta find that balance on Offense Fence Act Taylor preach that all off season. That's been kind of a little bit of a surprise really throughout the entire preseason and regular season at the bengals haven't been able to run the football. I mean we knew do this. Offensive Line had issues. We knew there is you know injuries and you know not the not the biggest household names on that line but late last last year with kind of a patchwork line they were able to run the ball very well you kind of figured they would be able to do at least a little bit of the same they share with very similar cast members numbers maybe even you know perceived improvements along certain areas and they haven't been able to do anything so to me. I think the biggest key is in running a football this week in finding balance. Obviously defensive plays another key but for me running game is paramount this week I see in the in the believe it's the live youtube chat. you know there's there's talking you know talking about trades and whatnot Trent Williams that that can do that's almost a weekly topic right I don't. I don't see Trent Williams I don't know if Trent Williams is a guy that the bengals will target because he is a guy that that will that is You know commanding ending a lot a high profile high yield. He will need a high yield of draft capital in you know obviously veasley money the bengals would probably want to extend his current contract that sort of thing so I just I don't foresee that happening in the last as we get closer to the trade deadline. The redskins are willing to part with them with for a little less just to get him off their books and get them out of their locker room. All that kind of stuff stuff you know unless they're really looking to part with him for a lesser amount in terms of draft capital that sort of thing. I don't see it happening. The according land thing kind of throws a wrench into the whole works this would this really wouldn't even be a topic of conversation. If cordy Glenn had been healthy he still dealing with that concussion issue. I'm we're we're going. We're going on a month plus year. That cordy Glenn has been dealing with this then you lose Jona Williams to me you know I think it would be great in theory very few have Trent Williams for a handful more years if he can play effective football than you've got Joan Williams kind of is your book ends over the next couple of couple of years but you know I I this is that's not the type of trade usually this. This team makes granted. They traded for Cordy Glenn last year but that was kind of a shell game in terms of moving moving around the draft that they moved back a little bit in the draft and they got him on a contract. That was pretty team friendly that sort of thing so I just I don't really see I don't really we see that happen. again. I'm Anthony Costanza with CINCY JUNGLE DOT COM and the orange and black insider bengals podcast appreciate you joining us on this Friday a evening. Were getting you set for week. Three the bengals go to buffalo to take on the.
