Earl Weaver, who had his own managerial style that did not include the hit and run, sacrifice bunts and stolen bases, died at the age of 82 on Saturday.

Weaver died about 2 a.m. on January 19, 2013 of an apparent heart attack while on an Orioles’ fantasy cruise aboard the Celebrity Silhouette on the the Caribbean Sea. Weaver’s wife of 49 years, Marianna, was at his side when he died.

Weaver, who entered the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1996, managed 2,540 games with a record of 1,480 wins, 1,060 losses for a winning percentage of .583.

The fiery skipper managed the Orioles from 1968-1982 then in 1985 and 1986. He won the American League pennant in 1969, 1971 and 1979. He led the Orioles to the World Series in 1970.

His number 4 was retired in 1982 by the Orioles.

Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig issued the following statement regarding the passing of Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver at the age of 82:

“Earl Weaver was a brilliant baseball man, a true tactician in the dugout and one of the key figures in the rich history of the Baltimore Orioles, the Club he led to four American League pennants and the 1970 World Series Championship.  Having known Earl throughout my entire career in the game, I have many fond memories of the Orioles and the Brewers squaring off as American League East rivals.  Earl’s managerial style proved visionary, as many people in the game adopted his strategy and techniques years later.

“Earl was well known for being one of the game’s most colorful characters with a memorable wit, but he was also amongst its most loyal.  On behalf of Major League Baseball, I send my deepest condolences to his wife, Marianne, their family and all Orioles fans.”

Orioles Managing Partner Peter Angelos issued a statement about Earl Weaver.

“Earl Weaver stands alone as the greatest manager in the history of the Orioles organization and one of the greatest in the history of baseball. This is a sad day for everyone who knew him and for all Orioles fans. Earl made his passion for the Orioles known both on and off the field. On behalf of the Orioles, I extend my condolences to his wife, Marianna, and to his family.”

The Cincinnati Bengals did the unthinkable, going from a 3-5 start that included a 4-game losing streak to Cleveland, Miami, Pittsburgh and Denver to winning 6 of the next 7 to gain the playoffs with a 9-6 record.

The Bengals have one game left, at home next Sunday vs. Baltimore.

Sunday’s win at Heinz Field, which has not been kind to the Bengals over the years, was a welcome sight. The 13-10 victory ended the Bengals’ 10-game losing streak against Pittsburgh and Baltimore dating back to the 2009 season, when Cincinnati won dominated the AFC North Division with a 6-0 record.

NOTES:

***Bengals DT Geno Atkins earned 2.5 sacks on Sunday to increase his season total to 13.

***With four sacks against Ben Roethlisberger and Pittsburgh on Sunday, Cincinnati leads the NFL with 47.

***The Bengals tied a franchise record by winning six games on the road this season.

***There have been 121 NFL teams since 1990 to start a season in the first 8 games by going 3-5 and then make the playoffs; the Bengals are only the eighth team to do so.

***Cincinnati became the sixth NFL team since 2005 to make the postseason four times.

***The Bengals under Marvin Lewis have made progress, but are 0-3 in the playoffs.

Bengals running attack a bright spot in lopsided loss to Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens are always one of the NFL’s top defenses year-in-and-year-out; especially since Ray Lewis has been the middle linebacker.

When a team rushes for over 90 yards or even a 100, they know that it was earned.

One of the positives in the Cincinnati Bengals blowout loss to Baltimore on Monday night is their rushing totals of 28 carries for 129 yards and no loss yardage.

This is especially surprising since the Bengals offensive line features a new center and two young guards and a new featured back.

Replacing Cedric Benson is Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis who rushed 18 times for 91 yards.

The offensive line converted a couple of fourth-and-1 plays.
