  1. I'm sure many of you knew who Onyx was on here, some may not. His real name was Jason Holland. He and I became really close friends through this website. I would go so far as saying he was like a brother. At 1pm (ish) he was lost to Post-Covid Sepsis. He got Covid a few weeks ago but in he hospital as of last Saturday he tested negative but got Sepsis from it. He didn't make it. It was like he knew, one of the last things he said to me was that he wasn't gonna get to see Joe Burrow play, he was so exited for him, he believed he was gonna take us the playoffs this year

  4. This is how I picture things going down... Somewhere in the Bengals "War Room" (aka Mikey's Garage): Duke Tobin: We have no starting offensive guards, Jonah has only played 10 games in two years, Trey has a blown out ACL and we've only signed Reiff for one season! Mike Brown: Weeeeeeeee! Weeeeeeee!!! Zac Taylor: Sir, can you stop spinning around in your chair so we can discuss the draft? MB: Ja'Marr Chase it is!! And for fuck sakes Zac stop leaning against the damn Lumina! You're going to scuff her up!! DT: But, Mike, didn

  7. In the simplest terms, the most convenient definitions, when you have your shot you take it. At the end of the season, 98% of the fan base would tell you that offensive line was the team's biggest need. When you subsequently have the chance to take the best option in that area of need on the board, you take a swing and you don't miss. The rest is just window dressing. You don't get distracted by shiny things and then assume a guy you want might be there in the second or later rounds. The Bengals play in the AFC North. Protect the QB, get their QB and run the ball. These are the key

  8. To your list: If these guys are comparable to Sewell how come none of them even grade out in the first half of the 1st round? I would dare to venture that Sewell is a consensus Top 5 pick for a reason, and those other guys are not for a reason. Of course the same could be said for Chase, but he's a wide receiver for a team with a historically, comically bad OL. Drafting him now would be like putting $10k spinning rims on a '91 Caprice with a garbage bag in place of a side window and one working headlight. DGAF if he and Burrow are Super Best Friends, someone needs to be the adu

  9. As much as Chase and Pitts are exciting options, I want the best offensive lineman in the first followed by the best offensive or defensive lineman available in the second. The lines are what a team is built on and ours are not good enough.

  13. I'll never understand the yanks disgust for kickers. If you've ever watched Bullock and the like step up for a chip shot that will win you the game, only to see them miss, you'd perhaps treat them with less disdain. Let's quickly look at the most points scored by a player in their career. Oh they're all kickers. Points win games, soooo.

  14. You deserve to be trolled. Not sure why you would root for a team that you are sure will fuck up every aspect of football operations. We get enough same old bengals from the entire sports media, so it's super annoying when the "fans" do it. What is wrong with optimism? It is all we have as fans. We can't do anything else but hope for the best. Circle jerk coping? What about you and team eeyore's 24 hour pity party? I haven't been here since the last draft and won't be back until the next one. Don't have to. I already know what most members will post in any given scenario. Especially you.

  15. Woah there, receivers can only be found in the top 5 of the draft which is why we need to pass on the best offensive lineman available even though our potentially HoF rookie QB had his season ended by a devastating knee injury after being hit for the 75th time in 10 games, setting an NFL record for bad pass protection. There are plenty of OL available in later rounds that are good enough I guess LOL IDK. Throw ball far!

  19. Yes because the NFL is definitely comparable to your middle school football team, that's an apples to apples comparison for sure. I guess the modern day athlete isn't as tough as you Catfish Bob... Let's talk about setting appropriate boundaries. A grown man poking little boys in the neck isn't coaching, it's weird and he wouldn't have done it if your parents were around.

  20. Shame on the Brown family, you invest in such a young promising talent that honestly doesn’t look like a rookie quarterback on the field but you fail to build an offensive line to protect him! Brown family needs to go, period! My prayers go out to Joe Burrow for a speedy recovery

  21. One of my (and many others) biggest beefs with Marvin Lewis is that he coddled the veterans while favoring them, playing them over rookies and younger players even when they weren't producing. Zac Taylor has not done this, benching or reducing playing time and/or the role of guys like Andy Dalton, John Ross, Shawn Williams, Carlos Dunlap, Darius Phillips, AJ Green and Geno Atkins. The message to me is, no job is safe, work hard and produce or you're not going to play. Say what you like but, I am behind him on this. If you want to play, do something more than cry about s

  22. This is such a "get off my lawn" post. As long time bengal fans know, there are a lot, and i mean a lot, of wtf moments over the years. But then there are those plays/players that somehow manage to go over and beyond into the realm Tibor has deemed the Sewer Brewer. This award is a way to try encapsulate what it's been like to endure being a fan of this team. Some may say "just don't watch" or "pick another team" ... oh i believe many of us have contemplated and even considered it but it's too late for that. We are fans until the end. I hear some people say they have a 2nd team the

  23. So, Hubbard said this to Dehner on the recent HTPG, which Dehner transcribed and put into his notes column on the Athletic today: Whether Hubbard intended it that way or not, that's some serious shots fired stuff at at least some of recently departed vets. And then some. Really interested to see him and Bates taking over leadership. Pleased too, frankly.

  24. I have read several testimonials of athletes who tore their ACL and got better as players afterwards, mainly because the injury forced them to focus on parts of their body they had previously neglected and it made their core so much stronger, and the 9 months of rehab left their body in better shape than before the injury. Let's hope Burrow is in this camp. Although I think I will still have PTSD all season just watching him take hits and constantly watching his knee for a buckle.

  25. So wait, stop me if you’ve heard this but, the Chiefs just spent top dollar in free agency and made a big trade to solidify their line? That seems ridiculous, no? Why not a WR?!? Dumbasses...

  27. I've been reading all this stuff for the last few weeks. I see all the angles from all the arguments and have changed my mind from one day to the next. I have now landed firmly in the camp of drafting Sewell. Now......if a great trade offer comes along - I think they should take it and load up. Short of that, I think the best approach is to take the long term answer at Oline. I know we've whiffed at drafting tackles (twice in the same draft) before - here's the big BUT how many times were those guys hyped to this extent? Never that I recall. Hell, you can co

  28. You know what's interesting about that last statement? Not one thing has changed as far as film on these kids, well in particular, Sewell vs Chase. The film during the offseason had Sewell as the clear choice as the 2nd prospect off the board by virtually everyone...McShay, Kiper, Jeremiah... pick your prognosticator. None of the film study has changed. As an example, in one blowout game by OSU over Northwestern Ohio State won 52-3 and led 31-3 at the half. This game was over early in the 2nd quarter, for all intents and purposes, as the Buckeye's offense went on a tear and scored on every pos

  29. They need to sign or trade for at least two above average offensive linemen ASAP. Minimum one OG and one OT. No questions asked. I can live with them not paying Thuney and even Zeitler but, there is NO excuse to not sign upgrades. Clearly, Sewell or Slater is going to be the pick at #5 but way more needs to be done. They still have $21 million cap in space and that's without seemingly obvious cap space cuts in Atkins, Hart and potentially Uzomah and/or Bernard. With those four guys gone there'd be $45 million available. Simply cutting Bobby Hart would put them well within the Top 10 in cap spa

  30. Bottom line, the Bengals have numerous options at OG and OT on the free agent market. They have lots of cash and the ability to create another $20 million quite easily. There is NO excuse for them to not put together a viable offensive line before the draft even arrives. It’s time to get it done.

  32. Not many teams outside of PHI and SF were impacted by injuries to the level the Bengals were. No team in the NFL can lose their starting QB and RB and survive the season. No team. The Bengals certainly also didn't expect to have all but zero input from Green, Dunlap and Atkins who accounted for more than $30 million is salaries this season. I'm not just making excuses, there's realities here. There's also a ton of work to be done. Yes, the Bengals need another good free agency and draft. Yes, they need more quality players. It takes more than a year to rebound from being the worst

  34. Everyone has a breaking point. There was no salvaging of this marriage. Glad we got something out of it. Carlos' frustration with Lou and the defense got the best of him. Always seemed very cool when I chatted with him on Twitter in his earlier days. People here seem to forget that he was nominated for Walter Payton Man of the Year award numerous times. I wish him well in Seattle.

  35. Honestly speaking, who cares? Next man up. Ass, gas or cash, no one rides for free. Those six players over six games have accounted for: On Offense: 52 Targets, 24 Receptions, 232 Yards, 0 Touchdowns On Defense: 39 Combined Tackles, 1 Sack, 2 Tackles For A Loss, 6 Passes Defended I'm not thinking that will be hard to replace. I really don't want the majority of them to leave. I've long been a fan of AJ, Geno and Carlos. If they've still got something left, go out and give it. I'd love to see it. But if you don't or don't want to and you get benched, sit d
