We’re ONE WEEK into Training Camp already and we’re inching closer and closer to the first preseason game! Have you been to Training Camp so far? Do you enjoy Training Camp at Paul Brown Stadium? How do you feel it compares to previous camps at Georgetown College or better yet, Wilmington College for you old peeps! The first Training Camp I ever attended was there and I vividly remember looking at Jim Breech and being amazed at how small he was compared to everyone else.

In this week’s show:

We start off the show by touching upon the touchy subject that is Ray Rice. The Bengals won’t have to face him in Week 1 as he’ll be sitting out his very light punishment. I think we can all agree that Mr. Rice’s punishment was NOT severe enough. This is the story that WON’T be going away anytime soon.

In the last episode of the podcast we each picked one player we’re following closely this camp. Our Training Camp correspondent Andrew Miller gives us the lowdown on the guys we highlighted previously. Give Andrew a follow today @andrewfoxmiller.

Guess what? Dre Kirkpatrick is injured….again! We discuss the latest round of injuries for the Bengals.

Marvin Lewis offered up some big praise for Margus Hunt this week. Are you excited by this? Or are you in wait and see mode to see how Hunt fares in the preseason against other opposition?

Finally, Fatal Content called into the Skype line to ask us his “Question of the Night”. His question this week? Which position group do you feel is the deepest for the Bengals? I think you may be surprised by our responses. What say you? Send us your feedback at insidethejungle@spnt.tv.

If you’re listening to this, chances are it’s Thursday which means the Bengals have officially kicked off their 2014 Training Camp! The day has finally come! What are you most excited about for 2014′s campaign? Which Bengals are you most looking forward to seeing on the field again in the Queen City? What are your expectations for this season? We want your feedback! Let us know!

In this week’s show:

We start off the show by choosing the one player we’re keeping a close eye on this Training Camp. If you had to pick one player, roster battle, or undrafted free agent, which player are you keeping your eye on this Training Camp? We each revealed our answers during the show.

Who is this owner and what did you do with him? Mike Brown had some pretty candid remarks this week, particularly regarding his role in the day-to-day with the club. Are you surprised? Is this confirmation of what you have suspected over the past few years? What is Mike Brown’s legacy?

Camp hasn’t even started yet and guys are already injured. Jermaine Gresham and Mike Pollak are on the Active PUP list at the moment. How worried are you about injuries?

Mike Brown also was candid this week regarding the contract negotiations with Andy Dalton, pretty much letting the public know that the ball was in Dalton’s court. It is rumored that the contract being offered to Dalton is similar in range to Colin Kaepernick’s deal in San Francisco. Should Dalton sign this deal? Should he bet on himself and wait?
