    No, a clueless Bengals fan would think an average NFL QB like Dalton can make a team with a TERRIBLE offensive line, injured WRs and a bad running game make a playoff run. It is utterly ridiculous. Dalton was an emergency pick due to the Quitter. The fact he managed to lead a 4-12 team to the playoffs the next year is pretty amazing. The cold hard fact is the Front office kept him around. They could have picked Mahomes but didn't, they chose Ross. If you want to blame anyone for Dalton being here 9 years its Mike Brown, Duke Tobin and Marvin Lewis. Why people continue to shit on Dalton bewilders me.

    Yeah Simmons wasn't a HoFer but he was a pretty good LB here. About the clueless take I'd expect from some windowlicking Steeler troll but I'm not sure why we're tolerating those now?

    You can take this post and switch Andy Dalton with Carson Palmer and have the exact same results. It was always fun watching Pick Six Palmer who blamed others for his failings besides himself. Hell even Willie Anderson called him out on it but please keep telling us how Andy Dalton who had a better career with the Bengals is worse than the guy in your sig.

    People have strong negative opinions on Dalton, and I get it - we never won a playoff game with him. But you know what? He NEVER quit on this team or the city.

    Thanks for one of the (if not the) best decades this franchise has ever managed, Andy. Go somewhere, prove your haters wrong, and get us a juicy comp pick.

    Fans set arbitrary standards and then fail to remain consistent with them. If we want we can hate Boomer forever because he stunk up the field in the Super Bowl. Kenny Anderson must have been hot garbage; he threw two interceptions to the 49ers and let his team fall behind 20-0. The good things don't matter when you can't get over the bad things. It's a mindset for entitled little shits.

    incorrect. At the end of that one you would have to put..and then he quit on the team like a bitch, so at least he's gone.

    Moreover, part of the reason why I am so excited about Burrow is that he isn't one of these "I just want to give all the glory to God" type of guys in the post-game interview. Tua and even Sunshine for Clemson reek of this and so did Dalton in his little post game ritual of praying with the opponents in the center of the field. But Burrow, realizes that God has nothing to do with it, he either wins the game or loses it based on preparation and skill and his "righteousness" has nothing to do with the final score. This worldview of Dalton's was part of the reason why he was never that upset when he threw an interception or fumbled at a key time. He would chalk it up to destiny or divine intervention (guess I wasn't meant to win). Burrow on the other hand has swagger. He exudes confidence and knows it's all on his shoulders, Jesus is not showing up in the fourth quarter to help him. I'd much rather have flawed characters with heart, than missionaries that are auditioning for a post-football career hawking their 'inspirational' memoirs in mega-churches.

    I've posted some of my work on social media before, but bailed on my accounts in there because they're distraction hell! This is a concept I've been working on for a while through multiple iterations. At one point, I had the stripes up on top of the shoulders, but it didn't play as well as I hoped in a straight on view. So I made some changes. This is clearly a throwback inspired project, but as the Chargers have shown, you don't need to re-invent the wheel to make something sick. In fact, I think our jerseys are old looking now because they're from an era where design teams were trying to design motion into their work. That practice in and of itself is basically faded into the background, and clean, sharp, simple but powerful design is back in the fold. Look how many teams have abandoned their Nike designs for something more classic. I think we should follow suit. Here's the link to the entire set. https://www.behance.net/gallery/96655579/Cincinnati-Bengals-Uniform-Concepts?

    I don’t mean to inflame anything beyond where it is, however, statistically speaking, Dalton, in nine years, was either this franchise’s best quarterback or second best, depending on how you weigh metrics. He compiled some pretty gaudy numbers. Not having success in a number of specific games, well, given just how roundly, holistically the team shit the bed, I can’t bring myself firmly focus my ire on one, single guy.

    so because he was a nice guy, we should have been elated to have a QB who couldnt get the job done for roughly a decade? Fans want to see their team succeed. i do not care what he did in the city, his life, his time, his money, if he helped people, awesome, has nothing to do with me. Whats most infuriating about dalton, is he actually has a big of an ego, and he really thinks he is a top QB. in his mic'd up playoff games, in his press conferences. you see real leader QB's in a press conference, like brady, rodgers, luck, even palmer did it, they could throw 4-5 TD,s lose 40-42, and come out and say "i need to play better, i need to make more plays" and andy would come out after throwing 1-2 picks and no scores in a playoff game and say "we need to play better" like dude the defense scored a TD, the defense held the texans to 19 total points. after the game he is told JJ watt called him the red rider bb gun, and in about as embarrassing of a comment as you can possibly make he said "thats uncalled for, there are kids watching" he is a walking talking butt fumble. that comment about jj watts comment, the multiple backfield screen pass interceptions, including breaking his own thumb making a tackle after one of them, the diving untouched fumble in the playoffs. there is nothing to have pride in with andy dalton. why would anyone want 9 years of average QB play? after repeated proof that he cannot win anything that matters? id like to think i am a pretty big bengals fan, i had season tickets for 13 years, several of which i as across the country, i had this place going for like 16 years now.. and andy drove me to not even watch FOOTBALL anymore. there was no reason to watch, there was no chance of winning a playoff game, and fans got tired of being in QB purgatory. good enough to not get cut, bad enough to never win. thats where us... "haters" are coming from. andy dalton made football not fun to even watch, and he thought he was king shit. he bitched publicl about being benched, as if if he was a top prospect someone wouldnt have worked out a deal for him in 1 day? if aaron rodgers got benched and the team gave him permission to seek a trade at 4pm with a 5pm deadline, the packers would be fielding 8 deals and one would have gone through. he is dlusional. he AGAIN blamed the bengals for his "late release" for not finding a team to start... his agent and his family needs to stop lyig to him, he is a starter on a terrible team, he is a backup at best otherwise.... 32 nfl teams agreed he isnt better than their current starter.. that list includes: GARDNER MINSHEW!!, 40 yr old phillip rivers, ryan tannehill, derek carr, tyrod tailer, trubisky, cousins, and so on... the OC who picked him in the draft who has gardner minshew, didnt offer him a deal...in favor fo gardner minshew.. and he is out there blaming the bengals... andy dalton can kiss my ass.... the bengals game him a job, paid him 83 million to be mediocre, gave him a ton of weapons, and got NOTHING in return... IMO...

    awesome, now that daltons been replaced and we've locked that thread due to petty name calling , the oline will start actually block, no more will our wifes or 4 year old children call out the plays before the snap. the linebackers will now magically appear in the same frame as the RB or TE when they catch the ball over the middle, the refs will begin calling fouls correctly , the nfl wont go to a commercial right before the bengals pick only to come back and be talking about the pick afterwards the sun will come out and it will finally stop raining in cincinnati. and all it took was for Andy Dalton to be released.

    I've been away from the board for awhile because of work and being a single Dad/Warden to two teenage boy prisoners serving an indefinite sentence. Also fighting the good fight on FB fan pages and being overwhelmed with the ignorance out there and all the negativity. I couldn't be too much happier with the overall results of FA, the draft, and the direction of the team under Zac Taylor right now. I think Burrow has a cocksure edge that drives him to succeed and will also do so with the Bengals because he will lead the team and our players will rally around him and elevate their play. That's just who Burrow is in my opinion. FA was stunningly different. I LOVE Reader and Bell. The front four of Hubbard--Reader--Geno--Dunlap is fearsome to imagine. Bell is a playmaking ball hawk that can cover a TE for a change. Williams is getting bumped down if he's even kept at all. Loving our safety situation right now. A little worried about CB depth and don't know much about Wayans but we seemed to overpay for him. LB is still up in the air, although the Wilson pick looks solid (hopefully better than Vigil was at minimum) and super intrigued by the Davis-Gaithier pick. I expect some growing pains for all these pieces to find their roles, especially given the likely limitations for actual practices the teams are going to be facing due to the virus (please football gods, let there be a season!), all the while hoping Burrow just bursts onto the scene with a healthy AJ Green and our suddenly scary WR corps with Higgins, Boyd, Tate...and Ross. Speaking of which, if Burrow can dig that guy's soul out of him and get him to ball out he could be unreal with Burrow finding him out on the field. Gotta stay healthy though. Oline: should be okay. Williams' health and being good are key. The revival of the resurgent play from the latter half of the season by guys settling into their roles as Mixon ran wild is crucial. Billy Price needs to step up and be a first round pick worthy o-lineman. Still a lingering concern but we have to remember that Burrow is significantly taller than Dalton and sees the field and feels the pocket better than Dalton ever will. He'll create his own passing lanes on the fly while keeping his eyes downfield, and is surprisingly athletic when he needs to take off and run and knows when to get out of bounds and not get hit. I expect the "another ball batted down at the line" problem to basically disappear. Man Dalton had more batted down balls than anyone I can ever remember honestly. Special teams is a non-issue mostly, our coverage teams are always good and Huber is a great punter, although upgrading from Randy is preferable if we can somehow, and I'd like Erickson to not return anymore. Too many costly fumbles (turned the Patriots game's momentum right around when Mixon was killing their top-ten defense the entire first half). I would love for a repeat of Dalton's rookie season and get to the playoffs, but win a game for the first time since 1991. My expectations are tempered as a Bengals fan of course but realistically we can do that right out of the gate, but I don't see worse than 6-10, expect about 8-8 to 9-7 and would be thrilled to win 10 or more games next season...if there is one. Thoughts?

    Dalton deserves credit for taking over when Palmer quit during a lockout. Five straight playoff appearances is also a legit accomplishment. Bottom line, the guy maximized his talent, which was average. Decent athlete with a decent arm, nothing more. We repeatedly saw his ceiling and he came up small repeatedly in big games. He had quality talent around him on both sides of the ball for the first half of his career and his play dropped off noticeably with his loss of supporting cast. We should have been trying to upgrade from him for years but that's not the Bengal way. I'm looking forward to not watching the Dalton show anymore.

    In Burfict's defense, he had one of the greatest games ever played by a Bengal's defensive player. He almost single handily won the game by forcing a fumble we recovered, killing Big Jen and picking off Landry Jones with the lead and only 1:43 left in the game. In fact Rey Mag, Burfict and the defensive line had huge games, perhaps one of the best defensive games the team ever played. Fuck Jeremy Hill.

    for some reason, the "Dalton Released" thread was "closed to further replies". Well.....I have a further reply: You know, I don't really get the hatred for Andy Dalton. You can throw out all the " never won a playoff game, sucked at clutch time, interceptions and on and on and on. I know - I was there too - with everyone else. But here's the thing..... Andy didn't ask to play for the Bengals, we drafted him. He certainly isn't an elite quarterback - he is probably middle of the pack. What he did do is show up every day and played as well as he was capable for this team. You can't ask for more than that - give the best that you have. He was never a distraction or a complainer, even when he was benched or had to live through the rest of the crap that was this team - he stood tall and did the best that he could. He kept a great attitude and never bitched like so many player do. He isn't Aaron Rodgers or Russell Wilson but he doesn't have that. If you really have to blame someone - blame the front office for not finding a better replacement. I think it would be hard to find a classier and more generous person than Andy. That doesn't win playoff games - I get it - but Andy gave us the best that Andy had to give. For those of you who have to hate and will probably dribble all over this post - have at it - that's your issue. Best of luck Andy and thanks for all you gave this city!

    The O-line will be a multi-year process. But we have a decent start. 1) The scheme change. It looked like it helped everyone. Jordan and Hart in particular played better in the second half. And Johnson looked decent. XSF is supposed to match the scheme well. 2) From Sieve to Strength Usually takes more than 1 year. Jordan (early), Hart (early), Price, Redmond, and Smith were sieves last year. Jerry was not much better. Check out our PFF grades for last year (GS/G): 1. C Hopkins (16/16) 62.4 2. RT Hart (16/16) 57.7 (better 2nd) 3. LG Jordan (9/13) 43.7 (70+ 2nd) 4. RG Su'a-Filo (4/11) 60.1 5. LT Williams (DNP) If the 2nd half improvements from Jordan (who was around 35 for the first half) and Hart hold, everyone should be over 60 for the year. If so, perhaps the line won't be a strength, but at least it won't be a weakness. Only 2 other Bengals lineman graded out over 60 last year: 6. LT Glenn (5/6) 68.4 (released) 7. T/G Johnson (1/6) 62.6 8. RG Miller (13/13) 58.6 (released) 9. G/T Jerry (5/11) 55.6 (gone) 10. T Smith (5/6) 51.0 (waived) 11. G Redmond (2/3) 50.6 12. G/C Price (8/16) 41.8 3) Glenn factor In addition to the scheme change, and the Jordan/Hart strides, the other major factor in the line not looking like total crap late last year was Cordy Glenn at LT. He was, by far, our highest graded lineman last year. But he is gone, which leads us to.. 4) Across the board starter improvement There is no way Jordan will be as bad to start the year as he was last year. Experience, the new scheme, and having a competent LT beside him should again see an uptick. That LT should be even better with Williams this year. If Williams is a stud and Jordan is better than the end of last year, the left side could be a real strength. The rest of the line is merely competent, at best. Hopkins was OK, and perhaps improves some in his 2nd year at C. XSF is a slight upgrade on Miller. Hart improved but most hope Johnson beats him out. 5) Poor depth Aside from Johnson, there is not much here to inspire confidence. Price was awful last year and his contract may be the only reason he is still here, along with his ability to play C. Hopefully injuries played a part. Redmond was better than Price, but still not very good. Adeniji is a versatile piece who is probably a year away from contributing. Prince & Dugas did not play last year. 6) Going forward If not this year, then hopefully next, we see at least 2 more additions to the line. A real plus player at C/G & T. Draft or FA. This bumps 1-2 of Hopkins, Hart/Johnson, and XSF to the bench (whomever does not play well this year), where they join Adeniji as perfectly fine backups. Redmond & Price walk. Now, if Hopkins, Johnson/Hart, and/or XSF knock it out of the park this year (or Price does), adjust accordingly.

    God damn... That was the day I became a Bengal fan. First time I have ever saw them on TV. I was 4 years old, and live in NorCal. My dad is a 49er fan. I had to go against him. That's what I did.. I was a Dodger fan, dad was a Giant fan, and my first time watching football was the Bengals against my dad's team the 49ers. Sure enough, when the Bengals lost I cried. Cried and cried and cried, but a new Bengal fan was born. 1989 was the same. Watched, and we ALMOST won, but in the end we lost and I remember being so pissed off that I didn't care about the "do not walk on grass sign" at school and walked on the new grass and had to go to the office. I was around too many cheering 49er fans so I showed them by walking on their new grass!!!!!!! It was hell living in Norcal and being in Junior High with all these rabid 49er fan kids and teachers who knew I was a Bengal fan. I did not hear the end of it ever. Anyway, that's how I became a Bengal fan. I have never even been to Cincinnati. The only reason I am a fan is because I love cats, and they were going against my dad's football team in the first football game I ever watched. Since then I have been a rabid fan, and have seen 90% of the games the Bengals have played in Oakland or SF since either with my uncle or dad.

    Initial thoughts on the schedule - Geography: The farthest west the team travels is Houston. So I like that everything is kept close to home. - I like that the team plays Cleveland 2 of the first 7 games and has the Squeelers later in the season. In fact, the schedule games 1-8 doesn’t look that difficult. I think the team can easily surprise people and go 4-4 in that stretch at least. - Opening and closing at home is a nice surprise. - The Bye on week 9 right in the middle is ideal. - 3 of the last 4 at home is good if there is a playoff push. - The Bengals have the potential to be the first 2-0 team in the league following the Thurs night game and I think there is a good chance they could be. I’d say at least a 50/50 chance. - I love getting the Monday night game around Christmas in the Nati against the Squeelers. Plus it can’t be flexed out, so guaranteed. PBS should be rocking for that one and can be seen as the final knife in Big Jen’s coffin – send him into rape retirement with a big L. - I think if the Bengals surprise people they could be flexed into a Sunday night game later in the year. - If you think about the schedule in terms of opposing QBs rather than teams, it seems easier. Lots of potential young QBs on the schedule. - Since Indy week 6 is essentially a home game distance wise … weeks 6-9 are all in the Nati, since 7 and 8 at home and week 9 a bye. It’s good to have a month in mid-season close to home. - I hope Tua and Haskins both start weeks 11 and 13, with Daniel Jones week 12 in the middle, those are 3 winnable games if so in a row -- going into the Cowgirls and possibly Dalton accidentally throwing to the wrong team out of habit (if Dak injured or holding out by then).

It's the only thing that separates one group of NFL players from another, when you think about it. Well, for those of you in Cincinnati, I guess it's the fact that they're based in the same town you live in or near. I just know that the last 17 seasons of looking at the costumes has been painful.

(one he didnt play, and unironically thats the one we technically won if the refs didnt fuck us 3 times. no more backfield screen pass interceptions..... no more throwing a pick and hurting yourslf making a tackle. no more fumbling with no one around you in the playoffs. no more squeeky girly voice in pre game hype talks or playoffs after throwing a pick. its. finally. fucking. over.
