  1. OK everyone. Back to normal conversations.

  2. Exactly. It's a bully mentality. The Bully claims victimhood as soon as it's pointed out how ridiculous they are being.

  3. You think Hoard Lap went around and looked at every other team to determine this. Lap said it. He is Hyperbolic by nature and didn't really know. You ran with it because it fits your narrative. Done enough at each position. That's why there are positional breakdowns in the original thread you dolt. You don't feel like fighting? That's all you do. That's who you are. It's part of your identity. You are playing the victim after being the aggressor. It's typical for you. It's why I had you blocked here before you disappeared and why I have you blocked on twitter. You don't add anything to the conversation, you don't conversate. You just poke and run and then ask why someone chased you. And you show your true self in your final sentence. The last two statements for you couldn't be more dichotomous. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/dichotomous

  4. If Burrow is an all-time great, maybe we have done enough. That's what it takes to overcome the hurdles of a team headed by one of the worst owners/GMs in American sports history. He is that horrible and awful. Not good enough for Burrow to be very good like Dullton and Plamer were at times. He has to be Mahomes/Brady level. Not sure if being as good as Brees is good enough. Mike Brown is the epitome of the idea that 90% of success may depend upon who your parents were. Because he has accomplished nothing in his life and is still a millionaire and the owner of a major sports team.

  6. This is depressing. I think everyone is in the same chapter if not the same page and I do not want to see T Dub and Rick 2.0. We've lost enough people over the last few years for whatever reason as it is.

  7. For Taylor to keep his Job all that needs to happen is the offense is good. That's it. Because he can blame the D on Anarumo and fire him. Probably win like 6 games or more too.

  8. I answered the question. Did we add enough depth. So that there aren't gaping holes when injuries happen. Otherwise I like your breakdown and appreciate it QB Options: Brett Hundley, Sean Mannion and Matt Barkley. Mannion coached by Taylor. Barkley a former Bengal. Hundley fits the mold for what I like at the position.

  9. Great response. What would make you happy this season from the Bengals? IMO, they need to make a significant jump. This is Taylor's third season. He has "his guys." They appear bought in. There should be some significant progress. Anything less than 8-8 with a fourth place schedule is a FAIL. Injuries as an excuse isn't gonna fly this year. They've had the chance to build depth. At DB, DL, RB, and WR they have some depth. OL still worries me. If one of the tackles goes down things look ugly fast. One of the Bengals depth tackles is already gone for the season. I know they have time to sign another, but they need to do so. Getting back to the original question, "Have they done enough?" At this point they have not on the OL.

  10. There ya go. I suspect he may be a mid season pickup when he is recovered by some team.

  11. Fine.... QB..... This is the purpose of having trainers and doctors, if you watch any of his interviews you will notice that while he may be chomping at the bit he always says "if they let me". As far as adding a vet QB. Who? It's easy to say this but have you seen the list of available QBs? There isn't much there. The only guy on this list that has snaps is RG3, every other potential vet signed elsewhere. This also assumes you know that we didn't put in calls. I know it's easy for fans to assume that every guy is open to playing here but that's a mighty big assumption. We may have the "Burrow Effect" for FAs now but that wont apply to QBs who would be holding the clipboard for him. RB..... I agree, Gio was one of my favorites, and I'm sad he wanted to leave (at his age I get the desire to want to win though). As far as his slot goes, Perrine and Evans are not Gio I agree here as well, as Gio has done it at this level. I'm less sold on Perrine but am intrigued by Evans. If either of them prove to not be able to do what Gio did I suspect we draft a guy next year at a slot likely higher than we took Evans. TE - This is a luxury position for the Bengals and they had many more needs. Now had Kyle Pitts been sitting there when we drafted it may be a different conversation, but he wasnt. I am interested in seeing how Moss does now that he and Joe will be playing together again. I'll grant you that college is not the NFL but in college I thought he played a pretty good role for LSU. OL - We addressed RT with Reiff, Williams despite what some didn't want to hear, was going to be the LT, the coaches told you this you just thought it was coach speak. Reiff was already a fairly good LT and now he is moving to the right side which is notoriously less in far as competition with regard to guys he will be going against. Carman while not who I would have picked in the 2nd (although it's hard to argue against getting more picks for him as I really like what I see in Shelvin. Now I do think Carman will end up being a pretty good Guard, whether he can move out to RT when Reiff is gone or whether we will have to find a new RT remains to be seen. What I like about what the Bengals did in the draft is they drafted more than one guy on both sides of the line, this should raise the competition level and produce a line that will be better than last years abomination. DL. .... I don't agree that we treaded water with Henrickson v Lawson, I've always thought people overrate Lawson. Hendrickson will have the chance to show his season last year was not a fluke season and while he may or may not reach the same sack numbers, I bet he gets more than Lawson does. As far as the rest of the line I said I like what I see in Shelvin and there are a few other guys in the mix here too. None of them at a level Geno was in his prime, but it is very difficult to replace a guy that will end up at bare minimum on the Bengals ring of honor, that quickly. DT is a notoriously difficult position to find guys at Geno's talent level. Best I am hoping from them here is to plug up the middle to stop the run. Now I do really like Ossai and with some time think he will be better than Hubbard but having him as the 3rd option I think he is going to surprise people. LB.... not a big fan of this position group, I would have brought back Bynes honestly. This is a wait and see, as "camp speak" which we know is often overhyped, has alot of good stuff being said about Wilson. But yes this group is something of a concern for me. DB.... lots of depth, but I'm not sure we have any guy that can shut it down. I think it will be a average group other than Bates who we need to sign long term. I would not be surprised in the least if CB 1 is the 1st round draft pick next year. The bottom line here is that you have to weigh what you want to do in various aspects, and then you have to also take into account guys that may not want to come play here as well that they did try to get. (Kevin Zeitler anyone?) .....and you have to have a multi year plan so that you are in a position to keep the guys you want to keep that are already here, like Bates. You can't go into FA every year and blow your load or you just end up being the Redskins. (excuse me WFT). So you question did we do enough with what we could do with guys that were willing to come play here? As someone else asked you....enough to do what? Win more games? .... yes Compete for a playoff spot? ....maybe Win the AFCN?....if things line up right.....maybe Win a playoff game?.....I'd be surprised, but it could happen. Win the AFCC?.....No, that still belongs to the Chiefs imho....but we were not going to fix every problem we have on this team that quickly Win the SB? .... No, same answer as the AFCC.

  12. Sure it would. I didn't even mention Sewell in the breakdown of each position. I understand being too busy so as not to read entire posts. I don't understand the desire to comment on them if you haven't read them.

  14. I'd like to see them pick up another OL for depth after the Adeniji injury.
