This week, Anthony and John play a version of “Would you rather…?” in a Bengals’ coaching scenario, as well as examining the fallout of the Jonah Williams news. We’ve hit a bit of a lull in the NFL schedule, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t things to talk about. Training camp is around the corner and polarizing opinions on the 2019 outlook of the Cincinnati Bengals are plentiful. This week on The Orange and Black Insider, John and Anthony play an interesting game of “Would you rather…?” as it pertains to the Bengals’ coaching situation. Was the right move to wait until the 2019 offseason to move on from Marvin Lewis, or should the big hook have been brought out immediately after the 2015 Wild Card loss. Hindsight is a beautiful thing. That statement can also be applied to the Cincinnati Bengals and their first round picks. Jonah Williams is the latest in an unbelievable string of injuries to top picks for the team, as it looks to cope with his being out for the entire 2019 season. What does it mean for the club going forward? Can they recover from this loss? Join us live, or download the program through one of our many channels!

Well this kinda really sucks. The Cincinnati Bengals have likely lost their first-round pick for the season, again. On Tuesday, the team revealed that Jonah Williams underwent shoulder surgery and will likely miss his rookie season. Per Bengals.com: The club confirmed that rookie left tackle Jonah Williams underwent left shoulder surgery Tuesday to repair a torn labrum that is likely to sideline him for the entire season, but he is expected to make a full recovery. He sat out the June 11-13 mandatory minicamp after getting injured the week before in practice. And here is a statement from Zac Taylor: “We look forward to Jonah being a major contributor in the future, and know that he won’t let this injury deter him from still being an important part of this team. We’re confident in our offensive line personnel as we head into training camp, and we believe they can do their part in helping this team achieve its goals.” Bengals first-round picks are officially cursed. Williams will almost certainly join the likes of John Ross, Billy Price, William Jackson and Cedric Ogbuehi as top picks that end up missing part, if not all of their rookie seasons due to injury. Alas, the Bengals will now rely on Cordy Glenn at left tackle. Glenn briefly moved to left guard after Williams took over the left side during OTAs. Losing the 11th overall pick before he plays a down of football is never ideal, but we’re all used to it by now since the Bengals have the worst luck when it comes to their top picks missing significant time as rookies.

The Bengals rank near the bottom of the NFL in terms of playoff odds. It wasn’t that long ago when the Bengals were making five straight trips to the playoffs. But after how the last three years have gone, it feels like ages ago when Cincinnati was last competing in the postseason. Might that change in 2020 under first-year head coach Zac Taylor? The oddsmakers don’t seem to think so. The latest odds from Caesars Palace (via Bleacher Report) have the Bengals getting the third-worst odds to make the playoffs, ahead of only the Dolphins and Cardinals. NFL playoff odds are out pic.twitter.com/NSquyVUehz— B/R Betting (@br_betting) June 24, 2019 Despite having one of the NFL’s ‘easier’ schedules, no one outside of Cincinnati seems to think this is a team capable of making the playoffs next season. On one hand, Cincinnati still has several of the key players who carried this team to five straight playoff trips, including A.J. Green, Geno Atkins, Andy Dalton and Carlos Dunlap, not to mention promising young talents like Joe Mixon, Jessie Bates, William Jackson, Tyler Boyd and Sam Hubbard. However, there’s always going to be doubts when you’ve got a first-time head coach (Zac Taylor), a first-time offensive coordinator (Brian Callahan) and a first-time defensive coordinator (Lou Anarumo). The offensive line and linebackers are also major question marks that could turn into crippling weaknesses again. At the end of the day, taking the ‘prove it’ approach with this team is the best way to go. The Bengals have a lot of potential, but they need to prove they’re capable of harnessing it before we start talking about playoff contention. Do you think the Bengals will make the playoffs this coming season? […]
