  1. 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...

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  9. Note from me - it's hella cool that Burrow's return is so far along that seeing him on the field now just seems normal.

  10. 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

  11. 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?

  12. 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.

  13. It is a fortunate thing—for players—that they will be judged by their coaches on the practice/playing field—and not by media squawking heads. Cheering for Mike. His head is on solid, he has the desire, he’s trying to make the body follow along. He was a very good lineman at THE—the natural skills are there. Looks like he will be given a chance. Hope he makes it.

  15. Trainers and strength coaches have little control over players. They only make suggestions. Players do what they want. Professional athletes often do it to themsleves by not following the instructions given to them. They show up barely in time for workouts and don't warm up properly. They don't spend as much time in the training room as suggested getting therapy for injuries. One of the top qualities a trainer or strength and conditioning coach in professional sports needs is charisma. They have to convince guys who think a whole lot of themselves to do things they don't want to do.

  16. Everyone knew we were thin at Tackle. One injury away from condemning the 2021 draftniks for choosing a WR over Sewell. In short, what are the Bengals going to do to even up the Tackle situation ? ...OR... Is this another year in which we repeat an overused phrase from the past called, "We'll go to war with what we have"... ? Like Clapton said above, "Accountability."

  17. Quick thoughts from reading Dehner's piece - gotta admit, I haven't really appreciated just how rare the Bengals having 100% at the previous three weeks of voluntaries was as compared to the rest of the teams in the league. Won't guarantee anything in the fall, of course, but it sure isn't a bad sign either. And in person meetings and being able to move normally around the facility starting in July at camp would be really, really helpful, for certain. I agree with Bates, there may be some competitive advantage gained from that - especially if some of your opponents are not at that

  20. Pasting this from the other thread - Back-up T feels really thin now, to me, with Adeniji gone for the year (likely). Johnson, Carmen, Smith. And Smith probably needs a year of practices and training table. I would kick the tires on Okung for sure now, and see if he is willing to come here as a swing/back-up. I think Morgan Moses is still out there too? If so, I would definitely call him.

  21. So that's basically a wrap until July 27. Hopefully this thread only gets updated w/ musings about the team until then and the team has a safe and otherwise uneventful six weeks off.

  24. Then it's a team culture issue, as I posted. Are you on a team that fights for every inch, starting in training camp with understanding what's expected like hard work and proper diet and exercise, or not? Players may not be required to do shit, but NFL teams are not required to employ players who aren't on board with some basic understandings. That's my real criticism, not even him so much. It'd be one thing if he played poorly these past 2 years, but gave it everthing. He thoroughly admits being out of shape in this article and I honestly don't understand how an organization accepts that at

  28. Maybe Jordan should have taken care of his body like a professional before he failed miserably. Turner doesn't control that. The guy wasn't strong enough and we could all see it as he got backed up into the backfield on a regular basis. That's not on Turner.

  29. I'm wondering if they were both born on a Thursday and it is a reference to the Monday's Child nursery rhyme? There is a "..." indicating it goes on? Thursday's Child has far to go, which most interpretations are, will achieve great things? I'm old, but occasionally have lucid moments Not saying this is the reference, but could be?

  30. I think the tragic this about and for Michael Jordon is he was/is a borderline player who may have had a chance if he had not been horribly miscoached by Turner and thrown to the wolves to soon by circumstance and piss poor decision making by the coaching staff. Similar, almost the same for Billy Price only he did not almost end The Franchise's career. Going to be difficult to justify keeping either when they will spend most games on the inactive roster.

  32. 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.

  33. He can workout all he wants, they can write all the puff pieces too. He's still a bum. Like Ogbhuei, he just doesn't have the power to stop a bull rush from a real defensive lineman. And he's always late at recognizing twists. I pray he never sees the field in stripes again.

  35. Good article from ol' Gee-Off. Barring the chance for some freak injury, I'm glad a lot of the guys are opting to attend practice. I understand the NFLPA wanting to protect these guys but we have a whole slew of new faces, coaches and players alike. Let's be real here, this was a 4 win team last year and they need to improve in a lot of areas. Any bit of cohesion each unit can gain from this we'll take.
