Join me this afternoon, starting at 3:05, on ESPN1530. You can listen to ESPN1530 24/7 by going here.

We are the pre-pregame show today, for Bengals/Bucs tonight.  So today, we will talk Bengals. And the NFL.

What to watch for, what to hope for, and what Carson Palmer, Vontaze Burfict, and Giovani Bernard make me think about Joe Mixon and Karl Lawson.

The state of the preseason. Roger Goodell says for the 837th time that the preseason schedule may shrink.  I'll tell you what's interesting about that scenario.

We'll talk about the Exekiel Elliott suspension as well.

Oh, and there's a Scooter Gennett song. We'll play it.

Tony Pike is with us at 3:45, 4:45 and 5:45.

Alan Cutler is with us from PBS at 5:05.

The fun starts at 3:05 on ESPN1530.
