  1. To your list: If these guys are comparable to Sewell how come none of them even grade out in the first half of the 1st round? I would dare to venture that Sewell is a consensus Top 5 pick for a reason, and those other guys are not for a reason. Of course the same could be said for Chase, but he's a wide receiver for a team with a historically, comically bad OL. Drafting him now would be like putting $10k spinning rims on a '91 Caprice with a garbage bag in place of a side window and one working headlight. DGAF if he and Burrow are Super Best Friends, someone needs to be the adu

  2. Let's also not get confused into accepting that Sewell is the only OL in this draft that can block, OK?

  5. Chase is the highest rated wide receiver in the draft, the best since Julio Jones but Pitts is the better receiver. Period. Nothing says he has to be nailed down to the tight end spot, How many times did we see our tight ends spit out wide? Best receiver and a match up nightmare. 84" wingspan. We're not going to take him. Not impossible Atlanta takes him if he is there. I will be OK with Chase or Sewell but still think Pitts may the best player available to us at 5 and we will be foolish and not take him. OL in 2 and 3. Maybe tal

  6. I've been reading all this stuff for the last few weeks. I see all the angles from all the arguments and have changed my mind from one day to the next. I have now landed firmly in the camp of drafting Sewell. Now......if a great trade offer comes along - I think they should take it and load up. Short of that, I think the best approach is to take the long term answer at Oline. I know we've whiffed at drafting tackles (twice in the same draft) before - here's the big BUT how many times were those guys hyped to this extent? Never that I recall. Hell, you can co

  7. You know what's interesting about that last statement? Not one thing has changed as far as film on these kids, well in particular, Sewell vs Chase. The film during the offseason had Sewell as the clear choice as the 2nd prospect off the board by virtually everyone...McShay, Kiper, Jeremiah... pick your prognosticator. None of the film study has changed. As an example, in one blowout game by OSU over Northwestern Ohio State won 52-3 and led 31-3 at the half. This game was over early in the 2nd quarter, for all intents and purposes, as the Buckeye's offense went on a tear and scored on every pos

  8. I have no issue with this and without question, BPA is an excellent way to go. Teams that can do this will typically draft successfully more often than not. But, if you have guys ranked 1A and 1B (or remotely close), you then need to look at positional need. I think both Ja'Marr Chase and Penei Sewell are both exceptional prospects with a chance to become perennial Pro Bowlers and high level starters throughout their career. My issue with Chase is a simple one, the need for Offensive Line help far exceeds the need for another WR. Far. I don't care if that help will/can/may be avail

  11. It's cool, drafting a WR in the Top 10 after a season in which they were on pace to have the most-sacked rookie QB in NFL history (before the inevitable injury) is the Bengals Way. We can always take an OT in the top 10 next year!

  12. Of the 3 choices I believe that Sewell is the only one that helps the Bengals offense no matter who is playing QB. That is one thing to keep in mind.

Sewell ia the very best OT or Olineman in the draft for that matter.. Like i stated awhile back.. There isnt any fuckin 1A.. Looking at next years draft he'd be all alone as top top OT or any Olineman for that matter.. There won't be a 1A. The task of sorting out who plays where would be a delightful dilemma for Pollack to have.. He could form a line of Sewell...Williams...Hopkins...B

  18. We have depth on the OL? Where? Our starting LT misses twice as many games as he plays, the RT is 32, average, and on a one-year deal. The center may not be ready to start the season, and it only gets worse from there. If you think WR is a bigger need you're fooling yourself. Its a luxury pick for a team that can't even cobble together the basics. It's fine if you're all gaga over Chase but the idea that we need him more than a blue chip OT is ridiculous. I swear all of you Chase or bust people need to go watch Burrow's injury in slow motion on

Never ever follow any of your friends nor suggest they follow you. 3. Never ever follow anyone or anything political. If you do immediately delete your account. 4. Don't post much of anything that isn't a joke or wiseass comment. Done. Enjoy Twitter. There are some funny ass accounts out there.

He had 67 receptions, 908 yards and 6 TDs playing 6.5 games catching passes from Brandon Allen and Ryan Finley. I think the Bengals are in a position to see what this kid can do as a #1 WR. This is how our franchise QB ended the season... **Edited for High School Harry The Bengals finished 27th in yards per carry. The Bengals finished last in sacks in the NFL. 17 sacks in 16 games.

Joe Burrow gets sacked 32 times in 9.5 games In game 10, Joe Burrow suffers a grievous knee injury, ending his season Bengals "best" offensive lineman suffers a torn ACL Bengals LT suffers a season ending injury (again) Bengals keep same offensive line and add a 32 year old RT Bengals draft a WR in the first round Most Bengals fans rejoice and buy lots of Ja'Marr Chase jerseys Mike Brown smiles The beat goe

It's nothing but a testament to the league's endless greed. It's a drunken Roger Goodell pissing in your kitchen sink while lecturing you about integrity.

  27. Again, this is assuming Joe Burrow isn't going to throw Tate open. Let's keep in mind as well, Tate is fuggin incredible at catching contested balls. Nope, I totally disagree, I'm fine with Tate if that means more resources to a better OL. But here's the thing - I don't think it will be Tate. And let's agree that, as I said in my previous post, they don't need the THIRD receiver to be the FIRST PICK. They can pick a guy in round three or even later that is a better route runner/separator than Tate. With that said, that isn't the metric they need to go by anyway. Another aspect of

  28. A point of view I haven't seen addressed so far in this thread is - why so many people assume Joe needs "help" in terms of weapons? I mean, that's what Kiper said in his latest but I actually completely disagree that he "needs more weapons". Many (most?) QBs, even in the NFL, need some weapons. They need skill players to make their own space, they need intricate offensive schemes as orchestrated by coaches/coordinators to "expect" space that they otherwise wouldn't have any clue is there. Then there are those special QBs, the unicorns, who *make the space themselves*. Some call

  29. There has been a huge - monumental - advancement in orthopedics in the last 15 years. Surgery then was like stone knives and sharp sticks compared to the techniques they use today. Advanced imagery alone minimizes the amount of surgical trauma greatly. Medical technology is advancing not on a linear scale but rather in an exponential one.

  31. I didn't think I could out do myself, but the one thing you don't want to do is under estimate me... This draft perfectly compliments what the Bengals did in free agency and adds quality depth at positions of need. -Sewell and Green make the Joe's better and fills the biggest need on this team. -Brown and Fehoko are the two most under-rated prospects at their position in the draft because of the coaching and play calling of their college programs - Weaver, Williams, Jones, and Jackson can put a pass rush jolt into the DE/DT positions. They integrate well into

  34. Obvious to you. I voice my opinion and try to justify it. You have an opinion as well which is just fine except you create a strawman argument and then voice your OPINION as fact. Both are in the quote above. The Bengals were almost dead last in the league in receivers gaining separation. This was a big factor as to why Burrow held onto the ball too long at times. Why even bother drafting Burrow if you're unwilling to grab such an obvious pick that he has a connection with? The Bengals need both OL and WR depth, and in my OPINION the draft (according to the experts) is much deeper

  35. I was beating the drum hard prior to free agency saying TE was a strong need and an addition of one would help Burrow more than a speed WR. People told me I was wrong and that it was a frill. I agree. Kyle Pitts would be a HUGE weapon for the Bengals and a higher area of need than WR, in my opinion

  36. LOL...OMG. So weak. If the Bengals take Chase, the Stealers DT will try to blow Leatherwood? If the Bengals take Sewell, Boyd will make more contested catches? If the Bengals take Chase, the Stealers will resign James Conner to play CB? If the Bengals take Sewell, the Stealers DT will also try to blow him? If the Bengals take Chase, the Stealers CB will be clumsy? If the Bengals take Chase, the Stealers will choose to single cover him with James Conner?

  39. I couldn't agree more, my friend. I watch it every morning. I think the whole crew is solid and enjoy their combination of football news and takes mixed in with some good fun. Kyle Brandt, Peter Schrager, Nate Burleson and Kay Adams are all great in my opinion. I even like their typical "fill ins", specifically Shawn O'Hara and Mike Garafolo.

  42. I hope they make the right decision and draft Sewell. Screw Kiper. Reiff is NOT a long term answer and JW has shown ZERO ability to stay healthy but has moments might eventually put him in the red chip category but I'm not holding my breath. Serviceable in other words but not the answer. Out of all the potential free agents and draft picks there is/was IMHO only one that draws close to a concensus blue chip player. That is Sewell. I'd rather assume the risk on him than a 6' 6” 40 yard wonder.

  46. The risk with Chase is that Burrow gets mangled because the O-line wasn't sufficiently reinforced. The risk with Sewell is Burrow has to check down to option 3.

  47. I get the observation. Many of us in the stands thought the same. Maybe it was us who had it in our heads? This blurb from an older B/R article summed up the nuts and bolts of his ‘06 season: “Palmer underwent reconstructive surgery on his knee (in very early ‘06) and vowed to be the Bengals' starting quarterback for the 2006 season. And he did just that, starting every game of that season, and only missing a single snap due to having the wind knocked out of him.” “He put up even more staggering numbers in 2006, passing for over 4000 yards and throwing 28 tou
