  2. +1 And I was just about to post that ass wipe trolls like tibor, specifically, and others to one degree or another are chasing good people off. T-Dub being the most recent example but the long lost Village Chief, Rick, is another. Seriously, Mods, time to flush the trolls down the shitter with a courtesy flush to get them all the way to Cleveland where they belong. Time to face the fact that they are killing the goose that laid the orange and black egg right at the time it is about to hatch into something spectacular. At the very least (and I hope it is not the least), at least throw around a warning or two. I mean, shit get old. Off season not a lot going on but now we are off and running with Joe, Joe, Ja'marr, Evan and the AWSOME D and the personal shots and trolling from the same people continues. Addition by subtraction and hopefully some long time posters now lurking (Rumble, Dudley, etc) will post more and maybe we can get some of the departed good posters back.

  3. Respectfully, FUCK YOU. That's not me. At all. i hammered this team for years starting 2007 for keeping Marvin on. My time on this board goes back before that. But, seriously FUCK YOU ENTIRELY for acting like tibor posts in good faith. He's a fucking oozing sore of a troll. But, I will be fair. I will let you and tibor run me off. Because it is shit being on a board where people laugh and jerk each other off over shit threads like tibor starts. I've seen enough losing in 50 years of following this team to not want to fucking wallow in it with trolls. You win. you think it is funny. I don't. So, show's over. Enjoy what's left.

  5. Mem, thanks again for taking the time to post all of these updates. It's by far the quickest and easiest way to find any Bengals info. Much appreciated!

  6. Sorry. You do what he does, you are a bad person. He’s earned that opinion over years and years of being a bad person and being encouraged to be a bad person. You and others own this too. I’ve got him on ignore but people quote his crap so I still see too much of it. Hell, you all encourage the most self-loathing thread each week that can exist anywhere. But, hey, this board continues to be a shell of what it once was but as long as tibor can take open shits on everyone for a few people’s amusement it’s totally cool I guess.

  8. Being more aggressive is not necessarily a trait of a good coach. In this case, it was an idiotic call. The risk/reward doesn't add up. I'll boil it down to brass tacks: If he's successful the Bengals are still 35 yards from scoring position. If he's not successful, the opponent is already in scoring position. Let's hope he learns from this but in yr 3, I'm getting tired of him learning on the job

  9. Good/Better: My 38th Opening Day in attendance (would have been 39, but for last season). And better, because of sharing it with brother Amish--who has also been in on a whole lot of those 38 Opening Days with me. Bad: Nothing at all. Well other than an oddity with the concessions purchase. Bought one beer, and noticed a $.34 extra charge. Ask the beer guy what that was for. He said he thought it was a credit card charge! Can't pay with cash, you know. Ugly: Me. After a sunlit 90 degree day and a two-mile walk on my aging carcass. Loved every minute of the experience, though.

  11. Zac is/has been over his head, at this point the team is winning in spite of him. Being up 21-7 at home in the 3rd quarter isn't when you get aggressive, that's stupidity. Any decent high school coach could tell you that, combined with his winning percentage, and it's safe to say this guy can't get out of his own way....he's lucky he has Burrow, better keep him healthy this time.

  13. Now that things are a bit settled going into the year. Here is my take on the offseason. RB Mixon 25 Perine 23 Evans 25 PS: Patrick-Williams I wasn't for the Bernard cut. I didn't believe we should release a veteran known for his pass blocking when Burrow was coming off an injury and the offensive line, while improved, was still messy. Beyond that I think they nailed everything else. Perine showed at the end of last year that he can put up stats in a pinch. Chris Evans was a brilliant find who I think will see lots of snaps this year (my dynasty league teams are evidence of this). The debate was often who to keep as the 4th RB and I thought there was something wrong with that debate. If both Patrick and Williams were deserving, cut both and let them go to the practice squad. It also helps that I do a project that looks at all the rosters in the league and knew there was tons of comparable RB depth. I think it was Joe Goodberry who said to draft a RB in Rd 6+ every year because the position is so hard to predict due to injury etc. I think that's brilliant. It wouldn't surprise me at all if Evans was the lead back here at some point. And I love Joe Mixon. [B]Grade: B+[/B] If the other backs can pass block this goes up. Additions: None (Brian Hill is a Free Agent) 2022 Outlook: Add a 6th-7th rounder and WR Chase 26 [B]Tate 22 [/B] PS: Williams-Irwin-Taylor WR Higgins 24 Morgan 22 WR Boyd 24 [B]Thomas 22[/B] I wanted Sewell over Chase. With that said I have absolutely no worries about Chase's drops. I don't think anyone should. He is going to play at least 3 years of this contract and we will keep giving him chances. He will eventually make plays or he won't. Regardless it's not like the other team will just leave him open and double up Higgins and Boyd all the time. I love Tate. He is a great 4th option and I'd like to see him more and more involved. Morgan stands out for special teams and has some untapped upside having been coached by Walters in college where he set records so it makes some sense that he is the 5th active on gameday. But, although I didn't think about it prior to cuts, this position logically is just like RB. We were debating Irwin and Taylor and should have just logically said we have them both AND Thomas and any of the 3 will probably make a similar impact on the game day roster. Having all 3 still in the fold is great. I also assume they hid Williams so to speak because he has the biggest upside of the group of 5 but is the rawest as he learns a new position. [B]Grade: A[/B] Additions: None (Alex Erickson is a Free Agent, John Brown too but he is likely to land in NO or KC) 2022 Outlook: Tate and Thomas will be able to walk. I don't think either have big markets and we'd welcome them both back. Morgan-Williams and Irwin would all be under contract. Being as top heavy as we are with 3 legit talents you can let the rest of the roster figure itself out. A mid round pick or a veteran on a team friendly deal make the most sense. TE [B]Uzomah 22[/B] Sample 23 Wilcox 22 PS: Moss-Schreck All this group is missing is a high end talent. And I don't believe this offseason was the one to invest in that. They swung for the fences a bit with Pro Wells and Cheyenne O'Grady and seemed to miss as neither is on even the practice squad. Uzomah is a glue player to this franchise chemistry and Sample isn't far off. This wasn't a position where I believed they should invest and they didn't. [B]Grade: A[/B] Additions: None 2022 Outlook: This is a tough one. We can probably upgrade from Uzomah on the field but not off. He has just 35 catches after signing a pretty lucrative deal. I would love to see them start putting a basketball player who is transitioning to the NFL on the PS every year. An uber athlete who needs seasoning. With 16 spots there are far worse ways to use a spot. K McPherson 25 P [B]Huber 22 [/B] PS: Chrisman LS [B]Harris 22[/B] I think it's odd for a fanbase to have affection for all of their special teamers but here we are. Harris and Huber are in the fabric of the team, veterans that have been here for as long as I can remember....I can't remember who our last punter was actually. McPherson wowed us all in the preseason after many of us, including me, questioned the wisdom of drafting a a player at a position where most fail with their original team. Even Chrisman has OSU ties. Overall I think their strategy was great. [B]Grade: A[/B] Additions: None 2022 Outlook: Huber (37 in 2022 season) has a built in replacement should he decide to retire. Harris (38 in 2022) doesn't have the same luxury. At some point this season it would be wise to grab his potential replacement on the practice squad to carry over to next year. LE Hubbard 26 Sample 25 IR: Hubert-Kareem-Ossai LT Reader 24 [B]Tupou 22[/B] Shelvin 25 PS: Spence-Wren RT [B]Ogunjobi 22 Hill 22 [/B] RE Hendrickson 25 Hodge 24 Ray 22 I hated losing Lawson and think that Hendrickson is a downgrade. I was worried we didn't do enough to get a second 3 technique and Ogunjobi was a gamble. When the dust settled, despite the injuries, I love what they did to remake this position. Only Hubbard returns from the very boring group we had year that couldn't get to the QB. [B]Grade: A[/B] Additions: Olivier Vernon. He was great last year and has ties to Anarumo. Who knows when his injury is cleared up though. 2022 Outlook: This position is going to be very deep next year. DE will probably go 7 deep. Free agents at DT in Ogunjobi-Hill and Tupou will cloud things but any of them could come back and are unlikely to be high priced. DT could be a major need next offseason or Ogunjobi (27) or even Hill (26) could come back long term. SLB Pratt 23 MLB Wilson 24 Bailey 24 PS: Bachie-Jones WLB Davis-Gaither 24 [B]Evans 22 [/B] I wanted Bynes back but other than that I once again love what they did. Evans seems to be progressing. Bynes is on a practice squad back in Baltimore so available if we need him. Grabbing Bachie was a nice add as well. [B]Grade: A[/B] Additions: None (Josh Bynes on Ravens PS) 2022 Outlook: This will all depend on progress. Outside of the OL this is the biggest sink or swim position on the team. Not one of the 5 players at the position has proven themselves yet but all have shown something to lead us to believe they could settle the position. We could be looking for a lead LB next year or depth. S Bell 23 [B]Allen 22 [/B] PS: Henderson S [B]Bates 22[/B] Wilson 23 Probably the strongest position on the team. Allen was a great addition and Wilson and Henderson are both still progressing. Getting Henderson back to the PS is a huge positive. [B]Grade: A[/B] Additions: None (Shawn Williams was released in Arizona) 2022 Outlook: I have no doubt Bates is back for 2022 but beyond I am not sure. I hope they don't play hardball and they bring him back long term but I believe they Franchise him if not. I was thinking this could be a spot for an early draft pick to eventually replace Bell and didn't realize he is only 26...younger than Wilson. CB Waynes 23 [B]Apple 22 [/B]McCloud 24 IR: Lewis CB Awuzie 24 [B]Phillips 22 [/B] PS: Brown-Rose CB Hilton 25 Davis 22 Another position where I love everything they did. Invested heavily and wisely at the position and then backended it with potential upgrades. Added a high reward low risk guy in Apple. Rewarded Davis for his hardwork. Through 3 guys on the practice squad to hedge for the future. i am not sure how I feel about the McCloud signing but I trust them. Grade: A Additions: None 2022 Outlook: A lot of this depends on Wayne's health. If he is healthy and can play up to his contract then we won't necessarily need an early investment. He will be a Free Agent after next year so it wouldn't hurt. QB Burrow 25 [B]Allen 22[/B] This is one of only 2 positions where I think they errored and they should still do more. I hope they agree and they are only carrying 2 in order to try to grab someone. Word was they tried to grab Sinnett after the Dolphins game but he decided to go to their practice squad. I don't expect a backup to be flawless but I lean heavily to guys with athleticism and experience. I want someone who can come in the second half of a game and run for a couple first downs. I don't mind Allen but they needed to hedge. After final cuts you saw a bunch of guys swap teams to others practice squads. It might be telling we didn't get one. I am hopeful we still have our eyes out. [B]Grade: D[/B] Additions: to PS: Newman-Ta'amu (Driskel-Texans, Hundley-Colts, Finley is a Free Agent) 2022 Outlook: Burrow is great but I want to at least have a mobile option in camp. At this point, unless there are other cuts I would add Ta'amu for the season and see where things land. LT Williams 24 Prince 24 IR: Adeniji LG [B]Spain 22[/B] Smith 25 PS: Sutherland C Hopkins 23 Hill 25 RG Su'a-Filo 23 Carman 25 RT [B]Reiff 22 Johnson 22[/B] This is the position where I disagreed the most with where they landed. We essentially have 4 rookies as backups on the OL and we know eventually they will see time. I don't have any qualms with any of the 5 backups individually, but collectively it's a position that is just too thin to inspire confidence. Losing Price and Jordan added to that although individually I was glad to see them go. I would like for them to add at least 1 veteran to the mix. [B]Grade: C[/B] Additions: Okung-Wagner-Reiter-DiCastro-Easton-Skura Trade-Duvernay-Tardiff (Bobby Hart is available too) 2022 Outlook: With 3 true rookies as backups and potential growth from both Adeniji and Prince we could actually be in a much better place by the end of next year. It wouldn't be a surprise if Carman or Smith was a starter by next year. RT would still be a huge question.

  14. Very happy that Trenton Irwin made the roster....looks like a gritty gamer who's not afraid of contact and can actually hold onto the ball..take note Ja'marr. A little surprised and disappointed Thadeus Moss got cut....thought he looked good in pre-season. Mitchell Wilcox? Why him? Excited, but not the least surprised, that Evan McPherson is officially the Cincinnati Bengals's PK....he's going to do great things for us.

  23. They still text each other everyday, it's just like peaches and herb said so eloquently back in the day reuinted and it feels so good. Seriously though, I think Tobin deserves a few attaboys for his offseason moves and this trade is the strawberry on top of the icing on the cake. The oline group has done a 180, looks really promising now and for the future. The other offensive position groups are stacked with young talent, with the one area for improvement is TE but even then it's not below average. On defense it's a similar story with a good mix of guys who know each other from college(Hubbard & Bell, Pratt & Hill, etc..), played for the coaches on previous teams, or drafted guys. The addition of Hilton and Allen in the secondary is huge. Hilton adds on to the swagger Bell and Bates bring, he's the missing link to help this defense on 3rd downs. Allen is like a coach on the field and he knows Lou's defense. Overall a solid unit that should compete with anyone.

  26. This is all a continuation of what we've seen from Taylor and crew for their entire tenure. I totally agree that they're not playing to strengths and mitigating weaknesses, which was the best argument in *support* of Anarumo the previous two seasons - maybe he didn't have the personnel for this scheme?... To me that's not a great excuse because you're never likely to have an ideal set of starters, but it seems now that Anarumo has been able to assemble 100% of his own crew it's all falling into place. It seems clear enough we don't have the personnel for Taylor's scheme, at least not on the OL, and as per my earlier statement he just seems to stubbornly push ahead with his game plans regardless of the personnel and their ability to execute it. Like Anarumo he needs to find the guys that can do this shit or accept reality and pare it down to what works. This is why I thought the execution of the latter half of game one was smart, as well as the basic idea of playing under center. If it's partially because Joe's lobbying for the 5-receiver sets - sorry bud, we don't have the horses to do it right now - if you want to win we have to do it in other ways.

  31. I'm not following you. How is Tibor running anyone off? Who has he personally attacked? Looks like the other way around to me. Some of the same going for Tibor ran off T-Dub. Why can't we just leave well enough alone and let people have their say as long as it isn't personal? If you don't like it, put 'em on ignore.

  35. Right. And we're only barely behind Buffalo, who is supposed to have one of the top fan bases. Why would anybody be surprised that we're anywhere near the bottom when we're a small market. Also, I thought everybody was complaining about Mike Brown making too much money. Now he doesn't make enough? The "fans" here love to post anything they dig up that they think makes the team look bad. Like we don't get enough of that daily from the media. I really think that some members here think that Mike Brown reads these posts and they can guilt him in to stepping down. Even though it is obvious that he already has as far as football operations. Or he miraculously decided to start spending a lot of money in FA the last 2 years.
