    haha that's cute. Look, I keep it real. If you can't handle the truth then fine. But don't expect me to pretend. Race is always there. It is a part of any situation and embedded in how people perceive reality. The media would only care about 1/5 as much if the woman Mixon hit was black. That's just the hard truth.

    I am trying to respect USN Bengal’s Moderator request to set aside the sociological debate and leave it to another forum, but you clueless motherfuckers keep feeling the need to chime in and make it clear to me how much understanding of society you lack – when I already knew that. The Ray Rice situation is not analogous for a number of reasons. First, lots of people defended Ray, including the Ravens, until the tape made it clear they had known about what really happened all along, and they simply folded from PR pressure. But in the general society he was not a villain, and in fact people dressed up as him for Halloween with their GF’s sporting black eyes, and just like Rhianna & Chris Brown's abuse, he was not seen as a public enemy #1 who should be ostracized and was beyond repute. However, the Joe Mixon situation was 3 years ago! He already served a 1 year suspension for it, and was an 18 year old teenager when it occurred. Moreover, the woman has forgiven him and accepted his apology and given her blessing for him moving on with his life. YET … the combine banned him for it (despite the fact he played college football the last 2 years), and the national media harps on the 3 year old story with glee because it fits a narrative, as nothing gets more press than harm or missing person status to white blonde women or animals. (This is also why Mike Vick was devil incarnate for several years, from millions of *mostly white* people who eat pigs – with a similar intelligence level to dogs, every day). Btw, I'm white myself and love bacon. But of course, race, gender, class, etc all of these things affect the way things are framed. I can't even believe this obvious fact has to be explained. But I digress … this thread is about discussing Joe Mixon the player. So I'd like to stick to that ...

    Because everybody was fine with the whole Ray Rice thing, huh? You are truly a dumb motherfucker.

    Sometimes the questions answer themselves. But really, I'd give the exploited white rural working class people of WV more credit and realize some of them get it too. This is like "I'm not racist" BINGO, with the stereotypical "purple" reference. Purple people don't exist. But if they did, you'd probably be just as clueless about how their purpleness informs social relations between people.

    Why should they? The NFL awards the Lombardi trophy for winning the Super Bowl, not for morality or community service. Don't fall for the Walter Payton Man of the Year facade ... it's all bullshit. This is entertainment and blood sport. Men get paid to violently assault and injure each other for the intoxicated Roman Colosseum.

    Also ... gotta keep this 100 ... if you think there isn't a racial component involved in this, you're blind to how the world works and even in how people subconsciously react to situations. His greatest crime wasn't hitting a woman, but hitting a blonde white woman. That is why some fans across the nation want him crucified more than they normally would. This was a nation where 5 decades ago black men could be lynched for looking at a white woman, so Mixon is the inverse and became public enemy #1 in a league full of scumbags with hosts of offenses. Now back to regular programming.

    He isn't talking about how you feel, he's talking about how it is handled by the public and more so, the media. He is absolutely correct.

    ... I'd guess that about 1/5 of all NFL players (at least) have hit their female wives and girlfriends ... the league (like society) is full of chronic abusers, most never even get reported. So enjoy your bubble in Mayberry. You've been cheering for scumbags your whole life, nothing has changed.

I don't condone womanizing, serious drugs and especially what Mixon did...But there aren't many boyscouts out there for us to root for...

    I don't know if he asked Jesus to forgive him, but since he asked the woman to forgive him, we, too, should forgive him. Also, how can God forgive us and work miracles in our lives if we don't forgive others?

    this pick makes me moist.. some punk bitches with some tall soap boxes. even the stupid bitch is cool, shes moved past it, she said they sat down without lawyers and sorted it out and wanted to move on from it.. but some crusty old white dudes in ohio are picking out tree branches. Joe is currently 20 years old, so this happend when he was 18?, so an 18 hr old kid, getting called racial clurs, attached by a big bitch pushing and punches him, makes one mistake.. and yall got the shotguns ready? what a joke. make sure you toss extra "judge others" cash in the collection plate tomorrow. the only thing embarrassing i see is grown mens reactions to a mistake an 189?) yr old in a position theyll never even imagine being in, makes a single mistake. look at the video that happened the day after he turned 18... omfg... what a bunch of assholes

    This isn't true at all. Ray Rice's wife was black and the media made a huge deal out of it. I love it when people fish for racism when it isn't there. Yes, there is racism in the world, but yelling about racism on every issue is like the boy who cries wolf, people dismiss the claims when an actual case of racism occurs.

    One thing that pissed me off was when the Mixon pick was announced, ESPeein' went straight to The Incident and completely ignored Mixon the football player. Every other player in the draft got on the field highlights, Mixon got the tape of him punching the female Ben Rapeherburger. What a pant load from ESPeein' Welcome to the Bengals, Mr. Mixon. I am glad you are here and look forward to your playing for many successful years to come. NO

    The Patriots drafted Aaron Hernandez. Was already very questionable at Miami. Turned out to be a murderer. Nobody is innocent anymore. If you're looking for clean cut character, you're rooting for the wrong sport.

    1. He's not "just" a speed guy - he is a polished route runner and has ability to get open quickly short as well as go long. So teams have to respect him at both levels and he should come already able to run the full route tree. 2. We can't block shit up front, but there was NO ONE available at 9 that we should have taken for o-line. Would have been a laughable reach to do so. So how do you help best a shaky line? How about make it REALLY hard for teams to go more than seven in the box? How about make them think twice about blitzing? Yes? Because a guy with Ross's speed opposite AJ Green with Tyler Eifert on the field and Boyd in the slot means that teams can't easily load up in the box. At least they will have to think twice about it. And Ross's ability to get open quickly short will further take pressure off the line. 3. Not sure why anyone mentions Boyd at any point with reference to Ross. Ross isn't a pure slot guy, Boyd is (Ross CAN play slot, but he can line up anywhere - Boyd is simply a slot guy). And Boyd is a glacier compared to Ross in terms of speed. 4. He's a football player, who happens to be fast as shit, not a fast guy who's trying to play football. He spent his first few years as DB, before becoming a wide receiver. Speaks to his understanding of the field and his toughness. 5. Since the team cleared him and his shoulder and said he will be ready for camp, I will take them at their word. I want him in a full camp, and assuming they are right, no health issues from me. In fact, that shoulder? He played the entire year last year with the torn labrum...so...that speaks pretty fucking highly of his toughness and willingness to be on the field ( I am a health-is-a-skill person). 6. His size doesn't bother me. Not in a league where i have had to watch Antonio Brown and Steve Smith torch people. And Victor Cruz. Etc. Opposite AJ Green, I don't think Ross is going to see a lot of double teams anyway. And if a physical corner tries to body him off the line, they better pray they don't miss. 7. Saw on twitter last night, in Bengals last 40 games where they have scored 23 or more points they are 37-1-2. Crosses my mind that they need to make sure they have given themselves as much of an opportunity to score that many then as they can. Last year, without Marvin Jones in particular, they were stuck in mud as an offense. Ross helps fix that right away. So, to sum up, thrilled that they pulled the trigger on this. Makes them better from the jump (assuming they are not lying and/or wrong about his shoulder recovery), and gives me legit hope for 2017.

    Someone needs to contact the Bengals marketing team and have PBS set up a special where following a John Ross touchdown, all beers in the stadium are $ 4.22 for the rest of the game.

    FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK!!!! Had a meeting tonight, so I just got home and fast-forwarded to the Bengals pick...FUCK! A midget slot receiver whose weight doubles when he puts on a jock and shatters when you breathe on him. May even have to open the season on the PUP and will likely be wasted this season. 4.2 don't mean shit on IR. Maybe the pizza will still be hot when they send him for it. FUCK! FUCK!!!!!

    I agree that they should. Then again, and maybe I'm just getting old, but the fact that this guy can't stay away from weed for a month or so to get it out of his system tells you something about how undisciplined he may truly be. You don't have the self control to do something that will benefit you to the terms of MILLIONS of dollars, what will you do when you have the money behind you to actually fuck around in a major way? I dunno. I like Foster's game, and even after the combine incident I kinda understood where he was coming from. But still...come on man... At the very least the fact that he's at least putting out the facade that he cares means that money is clearly a big motivation, as he knows he's hitting his draft stock. But incidents like this are directly fucking with it. What DO you care about?

    Oh yeah...the one where he led the Bengals to twin 10-point leads after the assassination. And where the defense pissed away both leads. And the fumble you cite (which wasn't even turned over) when he had driven the team back down the field to try and get back to within 10 with a quarter to play. Oh yeah, that hysterically funny event. Yeah, I was there too, smart guy.

    Not to start another Dalton thread, but your "limited" QB will pass the Quitter this season in virtually every positive category (in less time) and will be closing in on St. Norman for the #2 All-Time Bengals QB.

    Yes what he did was terrible. It was 3 years ago. He was young and stupid. Nobody talked about it until the video came out. He seems like a good guy. Good guys can make mistakes. If he has truly learned from his mistake then I have no problem with them drafting him.
