    Jesus, you're just a broken record. No thought, no fresh takes, no nothing. BTW, your boy AJ McCarron can't even win the starting job in Buffalo against Peterman.

    Yeah I'm probably making too a big a deal out of it given the audience here. I'm basically at a point where I'm wondering how bad all this shit will become before it starts getting better. I would not be at all surprised to see large-scale race riots this Summer. Thing is, the people creating this situation will be the last ones to suffer, and they will only use that suffering as an excuse to do even worse. I don't think we're at Nazi Germany levels by any means, but it's enlightening to see firsthand how a generally decent society could eventually get there.

    Liking makeup of team.. Thoughts ... Is Eiffert the reds version of Homer Bailey? Willis jumps from 255 to 280 . Billings is a huge man (330) Mixon in at 220 ...sleek and strong Jackson may be all-pro this year.. Most improved player....im hoping Nick Vigil....... Vegas has them at 6 1/2...i see 9 or 10...i know (homer in me)...

    I would hope so. We have 2 very good safeties signed to friendly deals and then drafted a guy I really like. If Bates reaches his potential then he likely replaces Iloka sooner rather than later unless they go back to 3 safeties. Signing a FA isn't going to do anything but take snaps away from Bates.

    S'what happens in an organization with zero accountability. Ketchup Whisperer had been here for decades & the team built an offense around hiding his shitty OL. It still took fielding the worst unit in the league, and I'm convinced Marvin putting his foot down, to finally get rid of the putz.

    It's seems Alexander didn't really consult with one of the best line coaches ever too much; it's said that pride comes before the fall.

    I mean, everything about this seems like really great news: http://www.bengals.com/news/article-1/Price-cleared-but-continues-to-grind/e43bb138-1524-43d3-a71c-b04a665a8706 Sure can't question his work ethic or desire to be on the field. Given how slow some other rehabs have gone, delighted with this one. And, the way he's handled himself since the draft, he really should be able to hit the ground running on day 1 of camp.

    Incredible that Mixon would say anything given his sutuation and the fact it is only his second year. Even if he had no history he hasnt proven or played nearly enough to be making comments like that.

    Got to see The Eagles on Friday - my first time - they did NOT disappoint. Wish I had been able to see them before Glenn Frey died, but at least his son was there in his place, and he held his own. Vince Gill was also there, and he kicks ass. Chris Stapleton opened for them. Audio was awful, but they got it under control by the time the Eagles took stage. Really glad I got to go, was totally worth it, even thought the venue sucked (Minute Maid Park) and it was hot inside and outside the stadium. This is how they kick off Hotel California now - sick!

    I think Ross could be a great receiver if the defense were not allowed to touch him

    Anderson remembers how change revived his career Posted 14 hours ago Geoff HobsonEditorBengals.comFollow Me Blog A A Ken Anderson thinks change can be good for Andy Dalton. It certainly was for him. Bengals all-time passing leader Ken Anderson, the best quarterback who should be in the Hall of Fame, remains an unabashed Andy Dalton fan. And with Dalton undergoing the biggest playbook change in his NFL career, Anderson believes the latter day No. 14 is headed for some good things. Anderson merely has to look back at his own career that was revived in a 1980 season that is starting out a lot like Dalton’s 2018. Dalton doesn’t have a new head coach like Anderson did back then. But, like Anderson, he’s been handed a completely different scheme than the West Coast offense he operated for the first decade of his career. “Everything was different,” said Anderson this week, echoing what Dalton said last month at the start of spring drills. “How we called the formations, how we called routes, how we called protections. It forced me to get back into the book. Took nothing for granted. It was rejuvenation for me. I think it will be fun for him. “I think the offensive line will be more solidified this year. It will give him a chance,” Anderson said. “If you can score some points and the defense plays with the lead that makes the defense better. It all ties together.” Anderson is in Cincinnati for Monday’s charity event at Maketewah Country Club with Bengals radio analyst Dave Lapham, his old road roommate. For years Lapham has been the face of the Down Syndrome Association of Cincinnati’s big fundraiser and now the group is teaming with the Ken Anderson Alliance that focuses on easing the challenges of autistic adults. Anderson, somehow suddenly 69 years old, was 31 that training camp of 1980 and that means the No. 14s are in strikingly similar spots in their careers. Smart, accurate and used to winning on a team that has hit hard times. When new head coach Forrest Gregg plucked a little known former NFL assistant to coach his quarterbacks and receivers, Tulane offensive coordinator Lindy Infante, Anderson had 111 NFL starts under his belt and a .532 winning percentage (59-52) with an 0-2 record in the playoffs heading into his tenth season. He was a two-time NFL passing champion, but he was also coming off his first two losing seasons as the starter. Under head coach Forrest Gregg, Ken Anderson won an NFL MVP. Sound familiar? In his eighth year Dalton turns 31 during the season and is coming off the first two losing seasons of a career he’s posted a .585 winning percentage (63-44-2) in 109 starts with an 0-4 record in the playoffs. Like Infante, current offensive coordinator Bill Lazor has crafted the new playbook around the winningest quarterback in Bengals history and one of the more proven quarterbacks in the league, so he’s looking to highlight those strengths of brains and accuracy. Bengaldom is going to bristle if they go 6-10 like they did in 1980. But would they if they knew the next two years after that the quarterback would win two passing titles while leading the team to a 19-6 and one Super Bowl? Which is what happened in 1981-82, solidifying Anderson’s Pro Football Hall of Fame argument. The only man to win consecutive passing titles in consecutive decades in two different eras. “We did a lot of option routes where the receivers had a lot of different things,” Anderson said. “In ’80, at the end of the year we were getting better and, of course it, all clicked in ’81. We were kind of one of the first ones to do the quarterback bootlegs. The out-of-pockets. The nakeds. Whatever you want to call them. We had a lot of success with it. Lindy was an innovator.” Anderson likes Lazor’s resume. The word is that the Bengals offense is looking a lot like the up-tempo, wide-open scheme Chip Kelly centered on the quarterback’s decision-making. Infante’s option routes have turned into run-pass options, but Anderson, an NFL quarterbacks coach for 17 seasons, knows Lazor has worked for a diverse group of coaches ranging from Joe Gibbs to Mike Holmgren. “What’s nice is he’s been around a lot of really good offensive minds,” Anderson said. “He’s got a lot to draw on. You pick out the best things and what you think your guys can do and I think they’ll be exciting.” Here’s another parallel for the 14s. Both came into 1980 and 2018 after the biggest two-year sack totals of their careers. Anderson took 76 shots and Dalton 80. Infante arrived with a pretty good new left tackle. A guy named Anthony Munoz, who ended up beating Anderson to the Hall of Fame. Lazor also has a new left tackle. Cordy Glenn may not have a reservation in Canton, but he’s exactly what Dalton desperately needs and that’s a solid, seasoned guy that can make the Pro Bowl. Lazor is also starting things with a rookie center in first-rounder Billy Price. “I think it’s going to good for Andy,” Anderson said. “He’s got a couple of new linemen that are going to help him and he’s got weapons at the line of scrimmage and in the backfield. We’ve got to get (wide receiver) John Ross healthy. It’s going to be fun for him.” Change was good for him and Anderson thinks it will be for Dalton, too. “No question. Change can be good,” Anderson said. “Lindy helped me get back to fundamentals where I had got into some bad habits. We worked a lot on just the basics of playing quarterback and with the new offense it became a lot of fun again.” http://www.bengals.com/news/article-1/Anderson-remembers-how-change-revived-his-career-/4c336c67-59ea-4d90-aea7-d1b62eca4b2b

    It absolutely does when it's presented as something other than what it is or was. For the average person, discrediting the photo will also discredit the article. When trying to influence someone's opinion it's absolutely vital to present them with credible information. If they think you're trying to deceive them it's only going to hurt your cause. It adds to the "fake news" obfuscation of reality that allows authoritarian shitbags to do whatever they want. I understand you didn't take the thing yourself but it's been making the rounds & I think it's very important to vet things like that.

    Treaty that had teeth in it? You are sadly mistaken there Jamie... that treaty was a farce. Long article from the Washington Post from July 2015, but worth the read in regards to the “Iran treaty”; If you examine the Iran deal in any detail, you will be horrified as to what is in there. Aside from the nuclear provisions, there is a host of items that betray our allies and give aid, comfort and protection to a sworn enemy of the United States and Israel. The list below comes from nonpartisan, non-ideological explanations of what is in the deal, primarily from the centrist Washington Institute for Near East Policy and the center-left Brookings Institution’s Lawfareproject: 1. There is, in fact, a sunset, as Lawfare notes: “For ten years, [at Natanz] Iran’s (limited) enrichment program will continue exclusively with 5,060 active centrifuges, all of the simplest IR-1 model and all operating in Natanz. If any of these break, Iran may replace them with replacements of the same model. All excess and damaged centrifuges and equipment will be stored under continuous monitoring by the IAEA, also at Natanz. During these ten years, Iran can also continue research and development (R&D) enrichment with existing, more advanced centrifuges, but can only continue testing two of each model. For the bulk of these ten years, Iran will also be largely restricted from creating more centrifuges. After eight and a half years, these restrictions begin to lapse.” 2. At Fordow: “For 15 years, no uranium enrichment will take place.” However, since sanctions peel away beginning as early as eight years out, there is no real penalty that can be exacted. 3. The inspection protocol is a farce. Iran has has a total of 24 days to delay inspection. There is also a 50-day period before a joint committee of eight powers, including Iran, must decide whether there is a violation. If sanctions are reimposed, the deal ends. (“The agreement includes a statement that Iran considers a reimposition of sanctions as freeing it from all commitments and restrictions under the deal. In other words, the violation would have to be really big for the Security Council to blow up the agreement and reimpose sanctions,” the Washington Institute’s Robert Satloff explains.) 4. To resolve an inspection dispute, which would almost certainly be the basis for reimposition of sanctions, we need a majority of the group of eight. 5. Satloff explains: “On top of refraining from penalizing Iran for bad behavior, the U.S. and its partners commit to assist Iran to develop in energy, finance, technology and trade. The idea that America and its allies will actually help Iran grow stronger in these areas will sound a discordant note around the Middle East, where the Tehran regime is viewed as the eminence grise behind Bashar Assad’s brutal suppression of his people, the Houthi rebellion against state authority in Yemen, the creeping expansion of radical Shiite influence in Iraq and the activities of some of the most extreme Palestinian terrorist groups.” We, in essence, help Iran to terrorize our allies, including Israel. In addition, the United States and the European Union must help Iran protect against sabotage to its program (e.g. from Israel or Iranian dissidents). We are now allied with Iran against Israel in this regard. 6. Lawfare explains: “After eight years . . .the EU will terminate all proliferation-related sanctions and the US will terminate or modify sanctions preventing Iran’s acquiring nuclear-related commodities and services (translation: ballistic missiles).” There is no peaceful purpose for ballistic missiles. 7. We cannot sanction Iran for anything else — bombing Israel, for example. Lawfare says: “Crucially, however, the agreement also recognizes that ‘Iran has stated that it will treat such a re-introduction or re-imposition of the sanctions… as grounds to cease performing its commitments under this JCPOA in whole or in part.’ This seems to acknowledge that as long as Iran complies with the deal, the US and EU will likely be very hesitant to impose new sanctions irrespective of other behavior.” 8. Fordow, which the president once said was entirely unnecessary for any peaceful program, gets to keep its centrifuges and they keep spinning. Lawfare notes: “For [15 years], only 1044 IR-1 centrifuges (in six cascades) will remain at Fordow. Two of these cascades will spin without uranium and will be transitioned to stable isotope production. The rest will remain idle.” Even if Iran doesn’t cheat, inspections will lapse (see above) and uranium can then be re-inserted, in a secure underground facility. 9. According to the president’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, Iran can use the $100 billion-plus in funds and send that money to Syria, Hamas or Hezbollah (“We should expect that some portion of that money [coming from sanctions relief] would go to the Iranian military and could potentially be used for the kinds of bad behavior that we have seen in the region up until now”). 10. The detained Americans remain in Iran. Any one of these reasons should be enough to render the deal entirely unacceptable. Together it is hard to see how people in good faith could conclude this is good for the United States or Israel or the West more generally.

    I really believe what he said when he was campaigning - that he could shoot someone on Park Ave and his supporters would not care. I'm also now of the belief that he will never get impeached or resign.

    Picking this thread to bump. It sounds like maybe, just maybe, Ogbuehi is finally getting some coaching. And initial signs are he is responding positively to it? https://www.cincyjungle.com/2018/6/7/17434272/cedric-ogbuehi-making-big-strides-with-frank-pollacks-help-bengals-offensive-line
