Continued decline of the BBP
The BBP took a big step back when Paul Dehner Jr left for the Athletic, but it was still ok. Tyler Dragon was frequently way off on his analysis BUT he was entertaining. Lindsay Patterson was def the star of the show IMO. Kareem Elghizaar offered great insight and personality but was dropped fairly soon after the reboot. Charlie Goldsmith was ok for an additional viewpoint. However now it’s just Goldsmith and newcomer Kelsey ?Crawford?. It’s just about unlistenable. They don’t have a lot of on mic charisma. Give it back to Lindsay and put in Kareem as a headliner. Thank God there’s the Athletic podcast!
Lindsay needs to drop Tyler
Lindsay is a great host. Tyler is long-winded, gives you nothing analytical or new, and is always overly negative about the Bengals
Not for me
I’ve been looking for more Bengals coverage since the season is upon us. The Bengals Beat Podcast isn’t for me. Not sure who at the Enquirer is signing off on this production but it has to be questioned. This podcast reminds me of what it would sound like if NPR made a football podcast. I looked up the host. Not sure what media credentials she has except she tweets A LOT or just retweets other people’s work. The actual journalist , Tyler, seems to be informed and has good points but it didn’t hold my interest. There was another kid on there but wasn’t sure of his role but he at least sounded eager and not like a scripted robot like the host did. I prefer host that aren’t afraid to say negative things. Host that challenge ownership or question coaching decisions etc. Overall, there are much better Bengals Podcast out there.
