  4. +1 And I was just about to post that ass wipe trolls like tibor, specifically, and others to one degree or another are chasing good people off. T-Dub being the most recent example but the long lost Village Chief, Rick, is another. Seriously, Mods, time to flush the trolls down the shitter with a courtesy flush to get them all the way to Cleveland where they belong. Time to face the fact that they are killing the goose that laid the orange and black egg right at the time it is about to hatch into something spectacular. At the very least (and I hope it is not the least), at least throw around a warning or two. I mean, shit get old. Off season not a lot going on but now we are off and running with Joe, Joe, Ja'marr, Evan and the AWSOME D and the personal shots and trolling from the same people continues. Addition by subtraction and hopefully some long time posters now lurking (Rumble, Dudley, etc) will post more and maybe we can get some of the departed good posters back.

  5. 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't you hear what I said?!? MB: Mikey like wingy! ZT: I talked to Joe today and he said he wouldn't mind playing more than nine and a half games this season. He also said he loves me. MB: Elizabeth, show them the new jerseys again! Chase is going to sell a boatload of these bad boys for us. Elizabeth Blackburn: Pappy, we've got all kinds of people who've already pre-paid for their Chase jerseys! Jason, Spicoli, Membengal and Jamie have already left their credit card numbers with us. They didn't even ask how much they cost! I will SnapFaceGram them later and let them know their orders are on their way! Katie Blackburn: Daddy, maybe we should really think about some substance instead of flash. Joe's jersey sales took a hit when he went out for the season. MB: Now Pumpkin, we know these guys will continue to follow no matter what. Feed them Ferraris and they don't even mind that we haven't won a playoff game in 30 years! DT: Folks, we finished dead last in sacks last year, our run game couldn't get going and Joe got nuked, is WR really the way to go in the first? I'm thinking there's going to be be plenty of guys who can play Z in the 3rd to 5th rounds. Maybe we can bolster the lines in the early rounds. MB: I like that Hocker guy. Hocker! That's a funny name. It's fun to say! Hocker! Say it with me...HOCKER! He can play OG next season, we are good. Take him in the 4th! EB: Selfie time!! KB: Troy, wake the hell up! MB: Guys look...this guy's name is Loudermilk! That's an awesome name. Let's take him in the 3rd round! Geoff, start writing the puff piece. Let the sheep know this guy sacked a QB three times in a game in high school. They'll eat it up. LOUDERMILK! Geoff Hobson: LOUDERMILK! DT: Why the hell do I work here? ZT: Because you can be completely inept at your job and still remain employed as long as we sell lots of jerseys. DT: Oh yeah! Ja'Mar Chase it is! ZT: Let's high five! Bengals hand in their draft card. Somewhere, Joe Burrow sheds a tear as the Bengals Pro Shop opens.

  6. Respectfully, FUCK YOU. That's not me. At all. i hammered this team for years starting 2007 for keeping Marvin on. My time on this board goes back before that. But, seriously FUCK YOU ENTIRELY for acting like tibor posts in good faith. He's a fucking oozing sore of a troll. But, I will be fair. I will let you and tibor run me off. Because it is shit being on a board where people laugh and jerk each other off over shit threads like tibor starts. I've seen enough losing in 50 years of following this team to not want to fucking wallow in it with trolls. You win. you think it is funny. I don't. So, show's over. Enjoy what's left.

  11. 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 keys to success in the division. Do them well, you have a chance. Do them poorly and get your ass handed to you. Remember one last thing. The Bengals are famous for telegraphing their pick to other teams. Numerous times teams have traded in front of them to grab the player they wanted before they could (see Frank Ragnow and Devin Bush) leaving them scrambling. I can totally see this happening to the Bengals in the second round if they take Chase in the first.

  12. 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 adult in the room and not let him have cake for fucking dinner.

  13. 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.

  14. I will never complain about beating the Stealers, never. With our 3rd string QB, no Mixon, and patchwork Oline the team punched those assholes in the dick. I love it.

  16. Sorry. You do what he does, you are a bad person. He’s earned that opinion over years and years of being a bad person and being encouraged to be a bad person. You and others own this too. I’ve got him on ignore but people quote his crap so I still see too much of it. Hell, you all encourage the most self-loathing thread each week that can exist anywhere. But, hey, this board continues to be a shell of what it once was but as long as tibor can take open shits on everyone for a few people’s amusement it’s totally cool I guess.

  18. Being more aggressive is not necessarily a trait of a good coach. In this case, it was an idiotic call. The risk/reward doesn't add up. I'll boil it down to brass tacks: If he's successful the Bengals are still 35 yards from scoring position. If he's not successful, the opponent is already in scoring position. Let's hope he learns from this but in yr 3, I'm getting tired of him learning on the job

  19. Good/Better: My 38th Opening Day in attendance (would have been 39, but for last season). And better, because of sharing it with brother Amish--who has also been in on a whole lot of those 38 Opening Days with me. Bad: Nothing at all. Well other than an oddity with the concessions purchase. Bought one beer, and noticed a $.34 extra charge. Ask the beer guy what that was for. He said he thought it was a credit card charge! Can't pay with cash, you know. Ugly: Me. After a sunlit 90 degree day and a two-mile walk on my aging carcass. Loved every minute of the experience, though.

  21. I don't know if you've seen this yet, but it's a Bengals related story from a comedian. If you're this dude's friend, now's time to own up. And I'd like to point out that his friend screamed "Pacman" at the dude right about the time he was going through that whole "Don't call me Pacman" phase as well. Yikes.

  23. The weird thing about Lombardi's obvious news dead period hot taking is that it only holds up if you don't believe in Burrow and Bates. Those are the two clear leaders on the team, and in both cases they have gone to bat hard for ZT. Burrow's comments to Collinsworth on Collinsworth's pod earlier this off-season speak for themselves. Bates has clearly been of a similar mindset. So, the "he's not qualified to be a head coach" thesis/hot take is wrong on its face as neither of those two players go to bat for a guy that is literally unqualified. And I trust Burrow and Bates way more than I trust Lombardi. ZT needs to win games. So do Burrow and Bates. Those latter two know that, and still are full throat in support of ZT. Gives me hope for ZT yet.

  24. Big. Mad. Sorry typing on a phone I mis-typed a word while in a hurry. You’re the best. Locate me and hoard/lap (which is where I heard this) one other NFL team that had a full house 100% attendance at three weeks of voluntary camps. done enough for what? Win the super bowl? Make the playoffs and win a game? Have a winning season? Improve to 7 or so wins? What’s the parameters of the question? bengals have likely improved. They’ve made some obvious additions that should help at areas of need. They need to finally get some better luck on injuries, ZT needs to actually show on-field results that pay-off the buy-in he’s gotten from his players and the front office, and those same players have to walk the walk. could they have done more? Sure. Literally every team could have. They could have made different choices on additions and a million other things. But, and this hasn’t always been the case, they clearly have a plan. Is it gonna work? For once, I am genuinely curious and a little hopeful. Probably that’s rooted in the comeback of QB1. I don’t feel like fighting, I don’t appreciate your stooping to stupid passive aggressive shit like complaining about a mis-typed word, or you calling me stupid in the above post, but I will let it go. Seriously, what happened to you? The Sewell thing your breaking point? Sorry they took chase after you spent four months melting down two boards and Twitter on this. I still think they made the right call. We shall see. Hope you find some joy again in following the team. peace. Aaron

  25. 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.

  26. 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.

  27. 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!

  28. Let's also not get confused into accepting that Sewell is the only OL in this draft that can block, OK?

  31. 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

  32. Zac is/has been over his head, at this point the team is winning in spite of him. Being up 21-7 at home in the 3rd quarter isn't when you get aggressive, that's stupidity. Any decent high school coach could tell you that, combined with his winning percentage, and it's safe to say this guy can't get out of his own way....he's lucky he has Burrow, better keep him healthy this time.

  35. Good luck getting reservations at The Precinct on a Saturday night unless you book many months ahead. There's A Taste of Belgium at the Banks, too. I pass it every time I go to a Bengals game. Ruth's Christ is down there, too. There's a Port-O-Potty at the construction site just east of The Banks. Its called A Taste of Pittsburgh. Very popular with the visiting gapers when the Stealers are in town.

  37. Because he is a troll and not a fan. You will only find him here to shit talk the franchise, fan base, players, etc. Some have said differently, but if you literally never say one good thing about the team, yet post on a fan board of said team, then you are a troll. Maybe some day people will realize it's people like him who drive actual fans away from the board.

  38. 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.

  41. 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 team in the league. The good news for you is, you can really save yourself a lot of typing on this board. Just copy this sentence to your computer and paste it in every response, "Mikey and the inbreds are never going to fix things...blah, blah, blah, blah". You'll never have to type another one of your fresh takes again.
