  2. How much did he make for doing that? Hardly dumb. Trying to play in the NFL as a receiver at 43 after many years of retirement where guys will just be salivating to line him up? That's dumb.

  3. So, Hubbard said this to Dehner on the recent HTPG, which Dehner transcribed and put into his notes column on the Athletic today: Whether Hubbard intended it that way or not, that's some serious shots fired stuff at at least some of recently departed vets. And then some. Really interested to see him and Bates taking over leadership. Pleased too, frankly.

  4. I have read several testimonials of athletes who tore their ACL and got better as players afterwards, mainly because the injury forced them to focus on parts of their body they had previously neglected and it made their core so much stronger, and the 9 months of rehab left their body in better shape than before the injury. Let's hope Burrow is in this camp. Although I think I will still have PTSD all season just watching him take hits and constantly watching his knee for a buckle.

  5. This kid's got a lot of upside. He missed a lot of games but the biggest physical reason was a leg strain. Academic issues were the main culprit. It sounds like he comes to camp without any physical or character issues for the Bengals to worry about. Great highlight reel. Most of the first half of it is just him hitting big lanes with real good speed, but a lot of the latter half of the reel is him finding much smaller seams, or even seemingly creating seams with good vision and lateral movement. Add in pass catching and blocking skill. Could be a sneaky steal.

  6. Carson Palmer's "Kimo" injury wasn't just the ACL. It was also the MCL and big time ligament damage. Dr. Paulos said that "On a scale of one to three, it was a four," he said. "It was off the chart. It was pretty badly damaged -- shredded is the better term." His injury occurred later in the season and was as bad or maybe worse than Burrow's injury. Burrow also has the advantage of 2020 rather than 2005 medical technology. Per Adrian Peterson who also had a torn ACL and MCL in the 2011 season and led the league in rushing in 2012, it is all about hard work and dedication, working thru painful

  7. The strengrh trainer should be at a press conference answering How did it occur specifically.... What machine or exercise?.. How long his his session?.. Accountability...

  8. A few other thoughts rattling around my head with the off-season done and the six week wait until training camp here: ---I want them to sign a vet T now w/ Adeniji hurt. Probably won't get my way. Rick Wagner would make a ton of sense if Okung and Moses don't want a back-up/swing tackle role. But they really could use another vet at T in my opinion. ---Them having 100% attendance for three weeks of voluntaries and the one practice this week is simply fantastic news - clearly a buy-in - and apparently the only team in the NFL to do so. Excellent. ---Still gid

  9. I love a good redemptive arc and I am glad MJ has gotten it together, but I still don't trust him and Burrow is too valuable to find out. I hope he doesn't see the field all year. In fact, from a psychological factor I would probably cut him, just to avoid any potential PTSD by Joe when he starts getting pushed back into him. Some errors can't be fixed after the fact.

  11. I have a #14 available as well. It is not the authentic make, and it’s not autographed (but I’ll put my signature on it if one likes). It is also free. While I’m at it, I also have two AJ Green jerseys—one home, one away for giveaway. Also no cost. Sizes are XL and 2XL (can’t recall which for which ones, as all are in storage). Feel free to PM if interested in all, or a combo. Paring down my inventory.

  13. An interesting thing about Larry I only found out about recently - a friend and high school teammate of mine (yes, from up here in Canada) was one of those coaches of his in NC - I believe his actual position coach. This friend went down to the states to became a teacher and coach (I believe to try and see if he could "make it" in coaching... he's back up here now though) and we asked him at a recent Zoom-based "reunion" if any of his former players ever went very far - and he talked about Larry. I realize this probably isn't all that rare a thing for you guys down there but for

  14. Glad to - have lucked into some time each of the last few Tuesdays. Sounds like we will have media for all three days of mandatory mini-camp next week. Burrow's continued progress and the glowing reports from his WRs and observers have me in a really REALLY good mood.

  15. Yes to that. Genuinely nice person too. Had the opportunity to meet him on a few occasions here in Columbus when he was having his Jovante Woods Foundation appearances. One in particular, was at a pub during the first Bengals-Texans Playoff game. He and Pete Johnson were auctioning memorabilia, and had finished at halftime. The place was packed. He was wandering around, looking for a seat. I had a table near the main TV, and a few of my mates had left. Motioned to him he was welcome to join us, and he did. He went into football fan mode, and it was a delight to have the opportunity t

  18. Nice to find another uniform fanatic like myself. I think teams underestimate the importance of aesthetics and its effects on building a fan base etc. While players change teams and come and go, it's usually the uniform that is more eternal and long standing, and what conjures up the feeling of nostalgia that sports and fandom is constructed on. Connected to this, I think it is not a coincidence that the teams who enjoy some of the most loyal fan bases (and success on the field), are also the ones that almost never alter their look, logos, uniforms, or traditions. I am still upset

  23. Reforming his body like that isn't insignificant, but he has a long way to go to make the fans feel comfortable with him even being on this team

  24. This. How mind blowing to read he drops thirty pounds of fat, adds twenty pounds of muscle, and starts eating right AFTER allowing the crown jewel of the franchise to get seriously injured on his watch. This is on everyone above him in the organization to my thinking. How is the diet and exercise regimen of multi-million dollar athletic investments not insanely closely monitored?

  25. But that's the problem. Finding out he isn't good enough puts Burrow at risk. Jordan isn't owed anything by the team, it's up to him to play well in preseason games when Burrow isn't on the field. But he won't be facing top quality opponents then.

  26. Maybe if he had done this a couple years ago....at this point he's damaged good. He is going to have to blow the doors off people to get another chance to start. I thought Pollack's comments were faint praise. “You can see he’s got some power to him,” Pollack said. “He’s got good size. He can move relatively well for his size." Some power? Moves relatively well? Doesn't sound like Pollack is sold. Me either. Good luck to him though. Love for him to prove everyone wrong.

  32. Agreed. They were starting Wasteverharn and Ohehateme at safety that game. A big play was the botched FG early in the second half. If they made that, they go up 20-14 and then the next 2 Stiller TDs would not have made it a two score game. Marvin playoff games are full of these crappy moments: 1. Botched FG against Stillers - fail to go up 20-14 2. Gio fumble - fail to go up 14-7 3. Benson goes for 150 yards, but Garbage Graham screws up two easy kicks 4. Hill fumble. Enuff said

  36. The Cincinnati Bengals added to the roster again on Wednesday, this time using the waiver wire to add linebacker Joe Bachie. Bachie, formerly a Michigan State standout, went undrafted last year and spent the season with the New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles, appearing in four pro games. The Bengals have plenty of young talent at linebacker as the remade position looks to go from a weakness to a strength. But adding Bachie now speaks to how highly the team felt about him after the 2020 draft. If nothing else, it’s a low-risk move for a Bengals team ready to have immense

  37. Definitely. His injury was like watching my own son get hurt, and I don't even have kids. Ruined my mood for a month. All sports fandom are a irrational vicarious distraction of course, but it's nice when you can root for someone that you genuinely appreciate as a person (not just an athlete).

  40. All the balls come out with more zip for sure. You can tell that working on his core and hips in rehab has made his throwing better. He's about to be the bionic assassin, and the NFL will wish they never injured him.

  44. If you are going to draft a kicker he had better be a stud. Hope that continues, but playing in the SEC is a lot different than the AFC North in November and December. Tough conditions.
