    Thank you! I enjoy it but your acknowledgment is appreciated! Don't drag how you feel about me from the political forum to this forum. Thanks.

    Thanks for this thread. So tired of the constant doom and sadness. Frankly, I am super interested in what a fresh approach and new coaches and new coaching might do to breathe life back into what is still, at its core, a group of very talented players.

    This is where I’m at. The big thing is seeing if a fresh, younger coaching staff can manage to gameplan and scheme based on the talent in the building. That is, acknowledging round pegs and creating round holes for them to play within. It’s tough to tell how shitty or lackluster some of our guys truly were the past couple seasons and how much of it was just shitty, uninspired and unbending coaching. I am a believer that good coaching and teaching actually can make a difference, even at the NFL level. Time and time again New England, for instance, has been able to weather tough mid season injuries and still win championships.

    If he's too shitty to make the roster otherwise who cares if some other team plucks him off the PS? The NFL doesn't give the draft pick back if we play the shitty guy we wasted it on. I think Brown would once again rather double down on a bad bet than admit to a mistake. Being a Redeemer really takes a toll on the self-awareness.

    It it probably won’t matter. Did you read the quote in my post? My post was in reply to SF2’s assertion that the Bengals haven’t added “a single new player (one that will play this year) to a bad offensive line.” Unless Miller and the guard from OSU are (or will be) hurt and out for the season, SF2’s assertion is simply not true, correct? I would hope that Trump-like tactics of just making statements that included false information would not permeate into the general population, because when a person does that, it’s hard to believe anything he/she says.

    I told my son yesterday that he'll have 6 weeks of heartache and headaches if he worries about who's going to get injured in pre-season. Just wait and see what we have for the season and root for what we've got. The problem with that philosophy is that unlike the consistently successful teams, we haven't had the coaching staff that has the strategy to win with backups and other adversity. We need everything to be perfectly in place, the stars have to align and have serious devine intervention. Maybe the new coaching staff will eventually instill more faith. Maybe they will actually change their game plan based on who is available in the line-up. And actually game plan differently for each opponent.

    I agree with the old man about the 18 game schedule. Part of what makes the NFL so great is it's novelty. You have 16 games, each one is so meaningful in the grand scheme of a season. It isn't like baseball or basketball where you lose two, three in a row at the beginning of the season and it feels like nothing. In football, it means a hell of a lot. Thu Night football is already ruining the novelty aspect of it enough, lets not water it down even more. Another thing that I tend to think of is just the historical nature of the game. I understand that there have been changes throughout history (like, goal posts in the front of the end zone). I just feel like some aspects of football should be kept same so that its...you know...still recognizable football. All the talk about removing Kick offs, PATs, increasing the number of games...idk man just leave that stuff alone.

    I said a little better because I'm a hopeless optimistic homer who wants to believe somehow. I actually do think the coaches see something in Hart and feel they can coach him up some. Westerman finally gets a real shot. We brought it a couple guys who needed a change of scenery. Other guys are arguably given a chance to snag a spot that otherwise would have been filled without the injury/retirement issues, so maybe they make the best of it. I also feel like even if the talent is the same, there will be improvement just based on all enthusiasm of changed coaching and attitudes. I know LeTigre will have a field day with that statement. I know, wishing in one hand...

    No question, roster management here loves the sunk cost fallacy. Not saying they should cut him after one bad OTA session but if it comes down to risking him on the PS for the sake of a more capable back-up QB I hope they look at AD's injury history & make the smart decision instead of the strictly frugal one. No I mean it could happen tho

    What exactly did you expect him to write? That a team that went 6-10 and had the worst defense in the league was going to win the division? Keep in mind, the club added one possible new starter to the defensive unit. A team who hasn’t added a single new player (one that will play this year) to a bad offensive line will somehow play far better? That Andy Dalton, who was 5-6 last year behind this awesome line will somehow dramatically raise his game? That would be hard considering he played well last year. That the new HC,OC and DC who have almost zero time in any of those roles will turn the club around with a subpar roster? The offense might be a little better at first but it will take only one injury to a key player to stop that. We don’t even have a backup QB or any passable backups on the o-line.

    I'd agree if I thought that money would be reinvested in the roster next year, like pursuing a top 5 free agent OL or LB. Given the choice between overpaying AJ or reading more Hobspin about why they need to sit on that money to cover injury settlements in 2049 and actually when you do the math there isn't any money it's all in your imagination in fact you owe the Brown family ohhhh 'bout tree fiddy? Going with AJ.
