  1. Past hour
  2. As you say, this is a major balancing act. Also: just what “system” can you fit Player A and Player B into—when each either came from a college with totally different offenses, or FA’s coming from even a little different offense? The Taylor/Callihan offense is slant here/slide there along the line. Very little straight up stuff. I’ve been thinking that if they drafted each lineman from Texas Tech or Oregon State, they would have the perfect matches.
  3. Franklin..........Luke Kiinnard Middletown....Jerry Lucas/Kyle Scwarber..
  4. Aside from my family living in Franklin/Middletown, I prefer Dayton to CVG BECAUSE it's so much less of a pain to get in and out of. My flight on Saturday landed at 2, I was in my rental car by 2:30. When I left to come back home I parked my rental at 9:15 and was sitting at my gate by 9:40. The last time I flew out of CVG I missed my flight because getting through security was such a pain in the ass.
  5. I was on board with Jones as well. I think teams thought at 375lbs It's a risk ...
  6. Was thinking the same thing. And not a lot farther from Batavia where Adam lives.
  7. Cincinnati beat the Rams 19-16 on Monday night. Russ Heltman Sep 27, 2023 7:54 AM EDT In this story: Cincinnati Bengals CINCINNATI — Cincinnati offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr. went through some tough battles in the trenches on Monday night and he has one less day to recover from the blows ahead of the Tennessee matchup. Brown discussed how he reloads with All Bengals' Elise Jesse. "I do a really good job with my body week in and week out," Brown said about his recovery plan. "Just massages, manual therapy, PT, making sure I'm getting all those things corrected. So that's my focus." Brown's played in 16-plus games every season he's been in the NFL, so that strategy is working well for him thus far. He ranks third among Bengals offensive linemen with a 57.2 PFF grade this season. https://www.si.com/nfl/bengals/allbengals-insiders-plus/orlando-brown-jr-details-recovery-plan-during-short-week-i-do-a-really-good-job-with-my-body
  8. The 22-year-old leads the team with 26 tackles and four tackles for loss in three games. Blake Jewell Sep 27, 2023 10:00 AM EDT In this story: Cincinnati Bengals The Bengals defense shined on Monday night, helping the team get their first win of the 2023 season. Second-year safety Dax Hill was one of the standouts on defense. He led the team in tackles (8) and chipped in with some huge plays that gave Cincinnati the crucial win. A big-time sack in the second quarter and a couple tackles for loss helped pave the way for the Bengals defense. Although Hill was a first round pick, he flew under the radar as a rookie, playing behind star safety Jessie Bates. Let's take a look at Hill’s rookie season and break down how he projects to help the Bengals defense moving forward. After the Bengals historic 2021 season, they approached the draft with holes at offensive line and defensive line. With star safeties Bates and Vonn Bell on the roster, not many fans were thinking safety would be a priority in the 2022 offseason. However, anticipating the departure of Bates the following season, the Bengals took Hill with the 31st pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. He was the top player remaining on their board. His versatility and athleticism were two key traits that the Bengals loved. After racking up 149 tackles and four interceptions at Michigan, he ran a 4.38 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine to solidify himself as one of the top safeties in the draft. With Bates and Bell on the roster, Hill would have to wait a season to get a starting role. Hill did earn some time on the field his rookie season, playing 130 regular season snaps on defense and contributing 167 snaps on special teams. Defensively, Hill was given an overall grade of 58.1 from Pro Football Focus as a rookie. He did earn a solid run defense grade of 71.5. A big reason Hill had a questionable rookie season could be due to all the different roles the Bengals put him in. The free safety is typically the deep zone coverage guy and the strong safety plays in the box and is tasked with more man coverage on tight ends or in the slot. In the Bengals defense, the safety position is fluid. They move their safeties around and even though they have the free and strong safety positions, they rarely keep the same safety in a singular role. In 2022, Hill played 71 snaps in the slot, which accounted for 54.6% of his snaps, while only playing 13% of his snaps at free safety. He also took snaps at outside cornerback—both in practice and in games. In comparison, he has played 55.4% of his snaps at free safety through three games in 2023 and only 18% of his snaps have been in the slot. In 2022, Bates played 70% of his snaps at free safety. Hill has been able to play safety this season. Although versatile, I consider free safety to be the position he is best at. Even playing over half his snaps there, he’s still moving around in the box and into the slot, which is ideal for how the Bengals defense operates. I think as the 2023 season goes on, his snap percentage at free safety will rise a bit but he will continue to move around the secondary. Hill has been a quality defensive back so far this season. He started off by giving up only one reception on three targets for six yards against the Browns in Week 1. He had some issues in coverage in Week 3 against the Rams, but made some big plays including the sack and a huge tackle for loss. Hill's growth is important and it seems like he's growing every time he steps on the field. Even with an off game in coverage, he’s been able to be a playmaker for this Bengals defense. He’s recorded four pressures on quarterbacks, made four tackles for loss, and intercepted Deshaun Watson in Week 1. Hill will still move around the secondary as this season goes on, but look for him to step up more and more as a playmaker for this defense. https://www.si.com/nfl/bengals/allbengals-insiders-plus/dax-hill-shining-bright-for-bengals-after-offseason-full-of-safety-questions
  9. Muggy? It has not been over 70 all day and it is raining right now.
  10. Cincinnati takes on the Titans this coming weekend. Russ Heltman 1 hour ago In this story: Cincinnati Bengals Tennessee Titans CINCINNATI — Joe Burrow went deep on his love of football during his Wednesday media session. The relationships are what makes the sport special for the Bengals' quarterback, who loves interacting with fellow players that all have "respect" for one another. "It takes a certain kind of person to get to this point and have success," Burrow explained. "I think that's what we all have in common. So when you get together you can talk like you kind of know each other even though you really don't. "Everyone has respect for everybody that gets to this point and the reason that I play the game is for the relationships in the locker room. I love going up after the game giving respect to people who make great plays. Telling people they did a great job when I feel like they played well. That's one of my favorite parts of the game." Burrow's quickly become one of the most respected players in the league. His peers just ranked him as a top-10 player this offseason as he pursues Cincinnati's first Super Bowl title. https://www.si.com/nfl/bengals/allbengals-insiders-plus/joe-burrow-goes-deep-on-why-he-loves-football
  11. Today
  12. Robbins will get at least 6 more weeks to prove he can hack it in the NFL. Chrisman is a decent fallback option. He'll understand better the consequences of taking an unnecessary risk.
  13. Er, they could have drafted Dawand Jones as I suggested back in the spring. He played 37 pass snaps last game with 0 pressures allowed. Browns got him in the 4th round but I would have taken him earlier as it was obvious he posed problems for pass rushers in college.
  14. sizzle take a helmet to the hand or something?
  15. That's the NFL.. Sizzle to fizzle each week.
  16. that happens when you stop the unbearable 5 or less win seasons for a decade or so.
  17. Just trave to Dayton, it's easier to get in and out of than CVG anyway.
  18. No more than Odell Beckham and Kardashian. Injured too supposedly..
  19. Thinking the same thing... she is cock teasing this arrogant clown for all it's worth. She is supposed to go to the Chiefs v Jets game. Taylor's mother is going and wearing a Zach Wilson jersey.
