  1. We just passed the 20 year mark, I started the original forum started May 2004. Been a wild ride.

  2. All of my stuff is really old, mostly 1981 and prior. The framed stuff is a page from a Bengals playbook used in XXIII and signed by Sam.

  3. The Athletic on a fantasy breakout player for each team: Cincinnati Bengals TE Mike Gesicki Joe Burrow churns out career years for tight ends like he fills news cycles. The latest entry is Gesicki, but unlike C.J. Uzomah, Hayden Hurst and Tanner Hudson before him, Gesicki brings a unique skill set capable of producing dozens of big plays. He’ll be used as a big slot and counted on to terrorize matchups against smaller nickel CBs or slower safeties. More importantly, he could finally give Burrow a tight end capable of regularly exploiting the intermediate-to-deep middle between Tee Higgins and Ja’Marr Chase. Going for 700 yards and seven TDs is possible. — Paul Dehner Jr.

  4. Thank you both. I let the framer talk me into an orange frame for the print but now wish it had been black, for contrast against the orange lines. I may have it redone someday. Here's some more of it. Most of it (except for the full-sized helmets) was acquired in the early days of ebay, when it was auction-only and not a lot of bidders on there, so bargains were to be had. It was also the 1990s, so Bengals fans' enthusiasm was probably at an all-time low, which probably helped, too.

  5. I was pretty clear in the 2023 draft on how much I think J. Gibbs could transform this team. Even when Gio was here, I thought this team never really exploited the concept of the air back, to the degree that they could. IF Brown can fill this role, legitimately, I could be the piece that would have the greatest effect on taking this O to the next level. Put on top of that the possibility of a true receiver at TE (Giesecki), and possibly having non-terrible players at both tackle spots, and we might really be getting somewhere. Oh, and the addition by subtraction of replacing the worst contact RB in the league with, well, ANYBODY... There's hope.

  6. That’s one I didn’t see back then. Great find! I have posted this before, but this is my original/purchased from Koch’s in 1984 Krumrie jersey.

  7. You all are just upset that all of the vaginas in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and probably a good portion of the free world now belong to Joe. One of the female anchors on a station here in Columbus this morning just about had an orgasm after seeing the backless picture.

  8. You mean the paper that was never peer-reviewed and then removed from the publication (Lancet) because of their poor methodology? Do you know what "confirmation bias" means? Have you even read the original paper? "100% of people that ride escalators later die! OMG escalators are DEADLY!" Great research there professor. You do realize I’m in the field? Research is part of my life on a daily basis. Yeah? What field is that exactly? Where did you go to med school? What research have you conducted and where have you published your findings? Or did you mean cherry-picking bullshit off Twitter or Reddit... All a CIA conspiracy, of course. You sound very calm & reasonable. And I’ll post this wherever I feel like. It’s important. Yes we've already determined the rules here don't apply to you so knock yourself out I guess. Watch me catch a warning for responding to your panicked ill-informed nonsense.

  9. I’m thinking that just about 100% of starting offensive linemen would say something similar about their current QB. […but in this case, it’s valid.] 😎

  10. I joined after John Thornton shut down his board and Go started this bad boy, I used to post under the name Bengal_Smoov before everything got deleted and I came back under a different name. This is home for me, I've tried other boards but it doesn't work.... I can't quit you GoBengals.com

  11. I'm a refugee of the old Jungle board with my join date here showing 2007. I guess that's right. Fellow refugees include MOC, Michael Weston and Tiger J@w. Not sure why that board died overnight, have a suspicion but really dunno. A lot of good friends lost in cyberspace now. The only thing I liked better about that board was it allowed "ghosting" and a lot of strange characters showed up from time to time like Paul Brown's Ghost and Marge Schott with her chronic hack *cough* smokers' cough. Really like it here, hate it when (most) people leave and would like to see (most) of them return. And I really hit the panic button some mornings when I log on and the board is down for one reason or another. Besides the unPC yukking it up, it has become my go-to source of Bengals poop and scoop. Thanks, Go!

  15. Pro Football Focus head of football product Steve Palazzolo recently discussed the Burton selection on The Growler podcast with Paul Dehner Jr. “Jermaine Burton, my favorite draft pick in the entire draft,” Palazzolo said. “I think he was the fourth-best receiver in the draft.” Palazzolo went on to say, “He can be the most important draft pick in this draft class for any team if he’s as good as I think he is, and other people around the league think he is, but they just have to figure out keeping him in line, because he can be a special player to go to Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins.” After watching Burton's film, Palazzolo has become a huge fan. He says Burton brings incredible athleticism and explosiveness to the Bengals' already talented offense. If Burton is able to produce well at the professional level, the 80th overall pick in the draft will be a special player for the Bengals for years to come.

  16. The Athletic on each team's non-quarterback MVP: Cincinnati Bengals Ja’Marr Chase, wide receiver The re-calibration of Joe Burrow’s weapons didn’t just add versatility to the new pieces offensive coordinator Dan Pitcher can play with; they also augment the one he’s played with the longest. The position-less nature of the rest of the receiver and tight end group allows the Bengals to move Chase around more and dial up more explosive plays from different alignments. While his overall usage might not go up, the aggressiveness of his targets should and sets up for the three-time Pro Bowler and 2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year to enjoy his best season yet. — Paul Dehner Jr.

  17. The bottom 8 teams (25 thru 32) on this list? The Bengals face 7 of them this season. And how easy of a time should the Chiefs have in the AFC West? The next best team on this list is the Raiders at #23. All 4 AFC North teams are rated in the top half of the league in terms of talent.

  21. Funny thing is aside from the Trump worship & associated talking points I suspect there's more common ground than you think. Just need to chill with calling people libs, socialists, or commies when it's pretty obvious you're only repeating scare words without much substance behind them.

  23. I'll start us off. My Mother in-law recently visted her brother in San Francisco. He actually used to live/work in Cincinnati in the late 80s/early 90s. He heard that I was a Bengals fan and sent this hat he obtained from back then. It is still brand new (tag and cardboard still in the hat!) I absolutely love that triangle logo too, so retro!

  24. Comparing stats doesn't really hold up for more than 10 years or so, anyone playing before then was in a very different game. I'd put Gio in there before Mixon tbh.. It's not the Ring of Stats anyhow, being average and waving guns at people doesn't do it for me. Likewise Dillon has great numbers but was kind of a raging asshole by all accounts. The Ring's for people that played well AND represented the team & city well at the same time. Should be about more than who gained the most yards from scrimmage IMHO.

  25. I got this unexpected email from Pumkie this week, as she was writing to confirm my home mailing address: "Hi Amish, We are excited to soon be announcing a new tradition that celebrates you, our season ticket members! As part of this initiative, we will be mailing you a token of our appreciation with a letter from the Brown and Blackburn family." As the account holder of record for the seats that are shared across four households, I'm curious what they'll be sending. I hope it's something I can split with the other three, but if it's hella cool and unique (like a chance to play catch with Joey B, or a lifetime all-access field pass laminated in my name, or the hat that PB wore when Sam & Boomer won the AFC Championship), I expect my seatmates may give me some grief. So... I'm hoping it shareable. Or if it's not, I hope that it's so totally hella cool that I don't mind losing three friends. Knowing my front office, it'll probably be unique but unsharable, like a throw pillow or some dental floss. Although that hat WOULD be worth losing friends for.

  26. Let's make this point as good as it can be: When he's started more than 10 games in a season, the Bengals have played in the AFC Championship game. When he hasn't, they've missed the postseason.

  29. I'm a fairly newer member (2015-ish, transplant from the official team board that shut down) but I just wanted to say thank you for all that you've done and continue to do for this community. This is an exciting time for fans and having an outlet like this to talk Bengals football is second to none. I love this place. Who Dey

  30. Burton has a couple of pluses going for him that almost never get mentioned, maybe because they are so unique. 1) Burton played for 4 different HS teams in 4 years, then had 2 different starting QBs in 2 years at Georgia then another 2 QBs in his 2 years at Alabama. That means he had 8 different starting QBs throwing him the ball in 8 years of HS/college. That means he is used to making adjustments to different QBs and different systems. His rookie learning curve might not be as steep as it would be for every other drafted WR this year. 2) Burton was credited with 8 TD receptions in 2023, but he had 4 called back because of OL penalties. So while they don't show up in his highlight reels or stat sheets, those overturned TDs still show how productive he can be. I'm sure the coaching staff don't just watch highlights, they watched raw tape of every single play he was involved with at both Georgia and Alabama. So they saw his diving TD catch against Texas that was called back due to no fault of his own. Burton was actually an unlucky WR in 2023.

  33. Burrow is definitely the alpha male on the field. If he wants to show off his sense of style off the field, that’s fine with me. I can think of another Joe who modeled pantyhose for a TV commerce in the off season and he’s in the Hall of Fame.

  35. The Bengals have had far more success in this century, far as that goes. Jones fired the only coaches that ever did anything with his team because he couldn't stand to share the spotlight/credit.
