  1. When in doubt go with the older player IMO. The younger guys can come in later.

  2. Bengals by 10+. I don't think Dallas is going to be good this year. They always seem to lose big games too. I see the Bengals winning this one 35-20 or something to that affect. I think the Bengals are going to be the #1 scoring offence this year too.

  7. I recently saw the following article on Profootballtalk and was surprised it didn't recieve more response / feedback here. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2022/05/14/mike-brown-took-a-stand-against-rams-leaving-st-louis/ Obviously Mike Brown's competence related to both: 1. Football operations and decision making. & 2. (Genuine) committment to winning over the years (see 90's) can undoubtedly be questioned. One thing that I don't think can be is his loyalty....often to the detriment of the team and organisation. At the same time as much sh*t as he takes for constantly being "the fly in the NFL ointment" I kinda "dig" that he often stands for "old school" values and ideals. The article above is an example of that and ???? surely bodes well for the Bengal long term future in Cincinnati. Opinions?

  9. I don’t begrudge bates for trying. I do think it’s misplaced. I am glad bengals had a good plan in place. I would guess he will show up before third preseason game. Maybe see him on field by regular season week 3. don’t care. This team is bigger than all the players except one. And bates ain’t that one.

  10. Eh...it's his career. Players don't have many avenues to pressure owners to deal. I harbor no ill will toward Bates for playing hardball, but I also realize the Brown family has paid their own players generously in the past. This has to be about guaranteed money. Bates' agent got the Deshaun Watson deal, so I suppose we're gonna see a dance.

  11. All of the media bullshit is speculation. Soon enough, because he hasn’t been a good lad and happily showed up for voluntary workouts with no contract, he’ll become the Devil incarnate to everyone. Business, it’s business. And it’s a dance. Each side knows it, and it will resolve.

  16. All well and good but I have one of those jobs where if I ain't there, I ain't paid. And I'm a greedy kind of guy. So I will just bitch about it and go in. A though day at work is a small price to pay for a Bengals game.

  17. yea but no one cares, hell i barely care, i totally get all the checkpoints and neat little connections and facts and itll be a big game for those local fans. but national tv wise. no one cares. all of the connections and stuff doesnt make the matchup any better, there is no connection between the teams, different division, hell different conference, and one team is pretty bad. i am like 1% more excited about the saints game than i am about the jets game, just to see if a decent amount of fans have bengals stuff on locally. you need national nfl fans to: 1. even care about college football, at all. 2. care who won the national championship 3 years ago. 3. and then care that two stars from that college, 75 miles from this nfl team, is playing against that nfl team. IMO youre slicing off like 25% of national audience caring with each one of those things. again, i think its cool, and will be neat, but some bears fan or broncos fan isnt going to give 2 shits about that game whether our boys went to LSU and got a ring or not. just my opinion after hearing some talking heads bring it up. 95% of people who will care are either going or going to watch it no matter when its on.. so no gain putting it on primetime.

  18. thats where your messing up, gotta call off work the next day, sleep in, get up and rewatch the win. thats what my kid said man that would be an incredibly exciting game. bengals social media has improved so much the last few years, minus that fucking youtube schedule release video today. bengals fan in front of me talked shit about fat randy all playoff game, local fans didnt really realize he was a former bengals aside from one or two, but there was a overwhelming sense of "just run the clock and lets get to OT" vs him trying a 50+ yarder FG, like no one was hoping or expecting him to even give that a shot if they got there. offtopic: sat in that parking lot for over an hour waiting to get out, my son and i just laughing at all the titans fans fighting eachother and having a very bad time. that arthur meme is for the ages. i have tiny fucking hands, and a former co worker who has huge fucking hands would put it in company chat at work whenever i was pissed about something. still funny.

  19. this confirms what the dude was saying about thanksgiving and MNF and SNF games, to maximize ratings, those games all get watched roughly the same no matter who is playing, and for the 1pm and 4pm slot, rating will spike much higher for a killer matchup, so if youre getting 10-15 million viewers SNF and MNF either way, but can turn a 4pm slot from 3 million to 12 million viewers, thats a huge win.

  20. absolutely no one cares about that game except some local saints fans who are LSU fans, a school 75 miles away, bengals fans really could care less that the game more than any other, they have no tie to LSU, or the saints. ... "this matchuo is neat but has absolutely no national appeal" is what someone said, i forget who. and they are right when i thought about it.. "HERE WE ARE, MONDAY NIGHT< WHERE TWO GUYS....PLAYED COLLEGE AT A COLLEGE NEARBY HERE...... to play an unrelated nfl team" - the announcer. * shruggs*

  22. Bengals should be able to keep Burrow, Higgins, and Chase together for a while. Boyd and Mixon will likely be the ones who aren't kept around. Colleges produce lots of good receivers these days so maybe they let Tee walk but it won't be because they can't afford him.

  24. I'm chiming in a little late, apologies. Before the league added a third Thanksgiving game on NFL Network, Dallas and Detroit were the only hosts in play. CBS and FOX would alternate who would host which game, which was driven by the conference affiliation of the visiting team. This meant that on even years, Detroit would host an AFC team and on odd years Dallas would host an AFC team. Due to schedule rotation this fully-excluded the Stripes from ever appearing as we would play at Detroit only in odd years (2005, 2013, 2021) and at Dallas (2000, 2008, 2016) only on even ones. Due to the new 17th game rule, Cincinnati at Dallas when Dallas is scheduled to be on CBS is an unprecedented quirk. I would be surprised if CBS didn't jump at this and demand the league give them that matchup. Updating to add: Dallas has only 3 AFC opponents at home this year: Indy, Houston and us. Barring a complete redo of the Thanksgiving broadcast agreements, one of those three play on Thanksgiving as CBS "gets" the Dallas game and CBS generally "owns" intraconference games where the visitor is AFC.

  27. And, Stevie G can assist us to another PL Trophy, if his Aston Villa can beat or draw the Cheating Bastards of Manchester. May it be so. Paris in 10 days anyway for the Champions League Cup, SF. 4 possible championships (two already secured) in one season! Great time to be a Red! YNWA!

  29. The Chiefs game is at 4:25 pm Est, not 1 pm and it's slated to be the headline game for CBS, so it will be protected and not flexed.

  34. And that has been plainly & graphically demonstrated to be a false equivalency. I'm not claiming there aren't Democrat voters that are kooks, I'm sure there are plenty. However it is not a requirement for supporting the Democratic party. Supporting Trump requires one to reject basic reality. It's a cult. Like, I think Biden is a mediocre President and would still vote for him over Trump. I don't need to wave flags with his name on them, or agree he's a genius, or deny he's wearing a diaper. I'm not required to adhere to a delusional view of the world. If you can't see a fundamental difference there I think you're fooling yourself.

  35. OK I had to come out of lurk mode just to at you mf's STILL talking about Hunter god damn Biden's god damn laptop. Do you listen to yourselves? What's the matter, have you forgotten about Hillary's emails?! This weasel con artist scumbag you blindly support deleted 7 *hours* of White House recordings during a failed coup attempt and you want to talk about an alleged laptop. Fucking priceless. I'll just say again for the record that White Christian Nationalist fucks can all suck a rancid dick. You're traitors, pure & simple, only you're too god damned ignorant to realize it yet. "Democrats are the *real* racists"? motherfucker please.. Are you for real with this nonsense? There's your everyday white fragility and then there's this triggered fuckin mayonnaise-flavored snowflake. God forbid we admit slavery happened. Good lord the mental gymnastics you've got going on there. Absolutely mind boggling. The rest of y'all, who-dey, good luck trying to get some of these goofs to stop stabbing themselves in the eye with a fork every time they eat. Jesus wept I feel stupider just from having skimmed over some of this nonsense. Just.. wow. resumes lurking
