  3. This is how I picture things going down... Somewhere in the Bengals "War Room" (aka Mikey's Garage): Duke Tobin: We have no starting offensive guards, Jonah has only played 10 games in two years, Trey has a blown out ACL and we've only signed Reiff for one season! Mike Brown: Weeeeeeeee! Weeeeeeee!!! Zac Taylor: Sir, can you stop spinning around in your chair so we can discuss the draft? MB: Ja'Marr Chase it is!! And for fuck sakes Zac stop leaning against the damn Lumina! You're going to scuff her up!! DT: But, Mike, didn

  7. In the simplest terms, the most convenient definitions, when you have your shot you take it. At the end of the season, 98% of the fan base would tell you that offensive line was the team's biggest need. When you subsequently have the chance to take the best option in that area of need on the board, you take a swing and you don't miss. The rest is just window dressing. You don't get distracted by shiny things and then assume a guy you want might be there in the second or later rounds. The Bengals play in the AFC North. Protect the QB, get their QB and run the ball. These are the key

  8. 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

  9. As much as Chase and Pitts are exciting options, I want the best offensive lineman in the first followed by the best offensive or defensive lineman available in the second. The lines are what a team is built on and ours are not good enough.

  14. The weird thing about Lombardi's obvious news dead period hot taking is that it only holds up if you don't believe in Burrow and Bates. Those are the two clear leaders on the team, and in both cases they have gone to bat hard for ZT. Burrow's comments to Collinsworth on Collinsworth's pod earlier this off-season speak for themselves. Bates has clearly been of a similar mindset. So, the "he's not qualified to be a head coach" thesis/hot take is wrong on its face as neither of those two players go to bat for a guy that is literally unqualified. And I trust Burrow and Bates way more than I trus

  15. Big. Mad. Sorry typing on a phone I mis-typed a word while in a hurry. You’re the best. Locate me and hoard/lap (which is where I heard this) one other NFL team that had a full house 100% attendance at three weeks of voluntary camps. done enough for what? Win the super bowl? Make the playoffs and win a game? Have a winning season? Improve to 7 or so wins? What’s the parameters of the question? bengals have likely improved. They’ve made some obvious additions that should help at areas of need. They need to finally get some better luck on injuries, ZT needs to actually show o

  16. I'll never understand the yanks disgust for kickers. If you've ever watched Bullock and the like step up for a chip shot that will win you the game, only to see them miss, you'd perhaps treat them with less disdain. Let's quickly look at the most points scored by a player in their career. Oh they're all kickers. Points win games, soooo.

  17. You deserve to be trolled. Not sure why you would root for a team that you are sure will fuck up every aspect of football operations. We get enough same old bengals from the entire sports media, so it's super annoying when the "fans" do it. What is wrong with optimism? It is all we have as fans. We can't do anything else but hope for the best. Circle jerk coping? What about you and team eeyore's 24 hour pity party? I haven't been here since the last draft and won't be back until the next one. Don't have to. I already know what most members will post in any given scenario. Especially you.

  18. Woah there, receivers can only be found in the top 5 of the draft which is why we need to pass on the best offensive lineman available even though our potentially HoF rookie QB had his season ended by a devastating knee injury after being hit for the 75th time in 10 games, setting an NFL record for bad pass protection. There are plenty of OL available in later rounds that are good enough I guess LOL IDK. Throw ball far!

  22. Yes because the NFL is definitely comparable to your middle school football team, that's an apples to apples comparison for sure. I guess the modern day athlete isn't as tough as you Catfish Bob... Let's talk about setting appropriate boundaries. A grown man poking little boys in the neck isn't coaching, it's weird and he wouldn't have done it if your parents were around.

  23. Shame on the Brown family, you invest in such a young promising talent that honestly doesn’t look like a rookie quarterback on the field but you fail to build an offensive line to protect him! Brown family needs to go, period! My prayers go out to Joe Burrow for a speedy recovery

  26. 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.

  27. I get that Chase might be special and his chemistry with Joe is worth extra points. I get that we have other draft picks. BUT We already have two excellent WRs and, in Tate, a good slot guy. We've got a very good RB. Skill positions we're good if you work on the 3WR-1RB set basis. But we have 1, maybe 1/2 of the FIVE OL guys we need, and Burrow has already been toasted. One day we'll learn that football is won in the trenches, but it's not this day. We need to draft OL 3 of the next 4 picks.

  28. Not sure what to think of the non-committal answer. "If we can protect for one more second maybe we win, but what if we don't have to protect for one more second because we got the electric guy that gets open?" Really the true question boils down to which position is truly harder to find a premiere player. There are arguments for both. Taking into account longevity then the answer is clear. Nope. The shelf life of an OT is longer than a WR but only by about a year. 1st round picks make it clear. Nope. Neither requires a 1st round to be grea

  30. I assume you all read or at least didn't mind the pasting of the McGinn insider's/scouts piece on WR/TE. I promised to put up the o-line one when it was up - and it just got posted. Here we go.

  33. 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

  34. 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

  35. 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

  36. They need to sign or trade for at least two above average offensive linemen ASAP. Minimum one OG and one OT. No questions asked. I can live with them not paying Thuney and even Zeitler but, there is NO excuse to not sign upgrades. Clearly, Sewell or Slater is going to be the pick at #5 but way more needs to be done. They still have $21 million cap in space and that's without seemingly obvious cap space cuts in Atkins, Hart and potentially Uzomah and/or Bernard. With those four guys gone there'd be $45 million available. Simply cutting Bobby Hart would put them well within the Top 10 in cap spa

  37. Bottom line, the Bengals have numerous options at OG and OT on the free agent market. They have lots of cash and the ability to create another $20 million quite easily. There is NO excuse for them to not put together a viable offensive line before the draft even arrives. It’s time to get it done.

  41. It's not even worth the breathe to discuss the Bengals winning a game. I think the Jets would be a 6 pt favorite vs this team. To even entertain thoughts of this team beating the Stealers is to underestimate just how bad they are right now. The Cowboys gave up over 20 pts to every opponent this year. They were here on 4 days rest. The Bengals are downright miserable right now. No way any team with something to play for would even come close to losing to this Bengal team.

  42. I think something that's been lost in this weird year of 2020 is the fact that the Bengals have reporters named 'Tyler Dragon' & 'Ben Baby'. Are these real fucking names or are they just those computer generated gamer tags that X-Box 360 randomly gives you?

  44. We all know this team isn't good enough to beat the Stealers on the road in normal circumstances while committing bad turnovers. But playing with another make-shift line, down four coaches, down almost the entire CB room, and down Mixon - well, in that circumstance you CANNOT fumble the ball like Erickson did to start the game nor lose it like Higgins did later in the first quarter. You just can't. The Erickson one really pisses me off - because he let it affect him the rest of the game too. He was terrible receiving punts all day. The frustrating thing, as usual, for me as a Bengals fan,
