Cincinnati secured it’s most lopsided playoff victory in franchise history, defeating the Houston Oilers 41-14 in the Wild Card round of the 1990 NFL Playoffs. The Bengals have gone 0-7 since that day, including 0-6 under Marvin Lewis (I’ll get back to him in a second). And quite frankly they haven’t looked very impressive in any of those outings either, especially in recent years.… Read More The Cincinnati Bengals Are Stuck In Football Purgatory

Akili Smith was a one year wonder at Oregon. In 1998 he exploded on to the national scene leading Oregon to five straight wins, including a win opening weekend against the #23 ranked Michigan State Spartans, and helping them reach the 11th spot in the AP by week 6. Oregon spent 5 weeks ranked in the… Read More Throwback Thursday: Oregon Football
