Bengals’ only primetime game in 2018 is Thursday Night Football in Week 2
Rodney Dangerfield would be proud.
When it comes to getting no respect, the Cincinnati Bengals are right up there with Rodney. According to at least one Las Vegas bookie, only one team has worse odds than the Bengals to win the Super Bowl this year, and that is the New York Jets.
Things have been even worse since Dalton arrived. Cincinnati has a record of 2-5 in Monday night games since 2011, and is 0-6 in Sunday night games during that time. Primetime has not been good to the Bengals.
On Tuesday, he downplayed the report of his frustrations and said there’s still interest in a deal.
Obviously we’d like to lock something in at some point, Rodgers said. The team has made that public knowledge, they’d love to do that. I’ve said many times I’d love to finish my career here. There’s more than mutual interest on both sides.
I know my role and that’s to play quarterback the best that I can, and the team is going to try to put the right guys in place, the right coaches in place, the right players in place, and you just have to trust the process.
But Rodgers sounded a little peeved earlier in the offseason when he was asked about those decisions in interviews.
In February, he appeared on ESPN’s Golic & Wingo and was asked about the loss of Van Pelt.
Well, my quarterback coach didn’t get retained, Rodgers said when asked for specifics. I thought that was an interesting change, really without consulting me. There’s a close connection between quarterback and quarterback coach, and that was an interesting decision.
I saw moments, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. That’s what defines Dwyane Wade.
The 76ers could soon get their defining Process moment from Embiid.
The Sixers sorely needed Embiid, their All-Star center out with a broken orbital bone, to settle them as they fell in a quick a 16-point hole.
The Sixers lost for the first time since March 13 to Indiana. They won 16 straight to end the regular season and the first game of the playoffs and played their 10th straight game without Embiid.
