  1. Pacman suspended

    One game was the best case scenario for Pacman. Goodell was going to hand down something based off his history and I thought 2-4 games see med more likely. Hard to imagine the suspension being overturned if he appeals, but the depth at CB is pretty solid right now in his absence (Dre, Dennard, Shaw, Jackson, Russell, Benwikere).
  2. Breech and Krumrie are both too high. They should both be somewhere in the teens, IMO. I would replace them with Riley and Parrish, who both had far better careers than Fulcher.
  3. Dillon

    Like I said, people can believe the 100% wife driven theory or not. I think its more believable than his wife not liking the weather in Ohio or trash on her lawn.
  4. Dillon

    The 100% wife driven reason Palmer left town. CP was fucking around on his wife while she was pregnant with multiple women and she found out. In response, she moved back to CA and threatened to never come back or let him see his kids again. CP then decides to quit unless he is traded to the west coast in order to save his marriage. People can choose to believe it or not. I tend to think there is an element of truth to the story, mainly because I have heard a first hand account from someone who claimed to have banged CP. It also has never added up that Mike Brown would let CP go. He loved the guy and arguably treated him better than any player in franchise history (highest paid player ever, even gave his scrub brother a job).
  5. Josh Malone

    It seems like Paul Alexander is in a win-win situation heading into this year. If the line stinks, it's not his fault because of the players they lost in free agency. If the line exceeds the already low expectations, he gets credit for making chicken salad out of chicken shit. There is no way Paul can lose or be criticized no matter what happens. Quite a charmed existence.
  6. Dillon

    I am probably in the minority, but I still have love for Dillon. He was a rare bright spot during the darkest period in team history, along with Willie and Takeo. Sure, he left town on a sour note and he said plenty of things that put himself in a bad light. I think alot of it had to do with the emergence of Rudi Johnson as a fan favorite in 2003 seemingly from nowhere when Dillon got hurt. I was happy that he won a Super Bowl after he was traded, especially when he scored the clinching TD in the AFC championship against the stealers. At the end of the day, Dillon is one of the best players in franchise history. I wish his career had resulted in more victories and it's good that he wants to make peace. Personally, I will always remember his record setting performances against the Oilers and Broncos among the greatest Bengals games I have ever watched.
  7. People are sleeping on the Bengals' defense, but it's hard not to be excited with where that side of the ball is headed. Geno, Burfict, Dunlap, and Iloka are all in the prime of their careers. The front seven has added speed and athleticism with Minter, Willis, and Lawson plus expanded roles for Vigil and Billings. Players on the decline like Peko, Maualuga, and Dansby are gone. Cornerback is possibly the deepest position on the team, with Jackson being added to a group that includes Dre, Pac, Dennard, and Shaw. Bottom line, there is still plenty of talent on this defense and there is no reason they can't improve.
  8. As it stands right now, a backup LT is very much a need. Not only because Oghbuehi is a major question mark, but also because he and Fisher haven't exactly been durable the past few years. I would take King Dunlap in a heartbeat.
  9. Peko Bad Mouth's Bengals

    Personally, I don't give a shit what Peko says or thinks. He is gone and the Bengals are better for it. Bottom line, he was a member (actually team captain) on multiple teams that didn't get it done. He shares equally in that failure.
  10. I couldn't link it, but did anyone else read the recent USA Today article about Ross and his injuries/durability? Basically, he is sick and tired of the questions and misinformation that is part of the pre-draft process. He went so far as to say people claimed he was a year older than he actually is. He also said he played with the shoulder injury for 9 games last year and that he hurt it blocking against Stanford. Only dubious claim I heard from him was claiming he only missed one game due to injury in college. That's only true if you don't count the entire year he redshirted after ACL surgery.
  11. ** RD 2 - BENGALS select JOE MIXON, RB **

    I finally watched the interview with Kavitha Davidson from ESPN and it's exactly the hatchet job you would expect. She talks about Greg Hardy and his history and tries to draw a parallel to Mixon. The only problem is the "new" incident she mentions has been completely debunked. It's laughable for her to say Mixon shouldn't he banned from the NFL when her whole argument boils down to exactly that. I expected blowback for taking Mixon so I cannot be surprised by the media giving voice to outright lies and distortions. All the same, screw that bitch and I am glad she is butthurt about Mixon being a Bengal.
  12. Team Grades around the web.....

    None of the quarterbacks in this draft impressed me as sure fire NFL starters. I would say it is better to use a 2nd round pick on a player than to badly overpay for a 2nd round talent in the 1st round like CHI, KC, or HOU. Cleveland had a surplus of picks to work with and they picked up another 1st rounder in 2018 by trading with the Texans. Kizer may or may not pan out, but the Browns haven't mortgaged the future to get him.
  13. First thought I had when Malone was drafted was that Cody Core or Alex Erickson are not safe on the roster unless they keep 7 receivers or someone gets hurt. I like the idea of doubling up at the position and having better depth both this year and going forward. Malone seems like fit the profile of an NFL starter and was a nice value pick in the 4th round.
  14. ** RD 2 - BENGALS select JOE MIXON, RB **

    It is simply inaccurate to say Mixon didn't pay for his crime. Between the civil suit and lost earnings by falling out of the top 15 in the draft, Mixon cost himself easily $10 million with one terrible action. He also served a one year suspension and has a criminal record. You can debate that there should have been jail time or he should have been expelled, but arguing he walked away free and clear is just flat out untrue.

    I think it's fair to say the Bengals took risks in this year's draft and time will tell if it pans out. Ross and Lawson both have injury concerns from college and will need to stay healthy. Criticism of the Mixon pick seems to miss the mark. Hill is a free agent after 2017 and will not be resigned. Gio is coming off ACL surgery and will not be 100% for awhile. Clearly Mixon will have a role as a rookie and he is going to have every chance to start in 2018. The Bengals balanced talent versus need pretty well overall. Needs at pass rush, wide receiver, and kicker were adressed. Team speed is improved with many of these picks. O-line was weak in this draft and it was probably wise to steer clear, IMO. I also am factoring in WJ3 and Billings return from injury as additions to this year's class. I expect a major impact from our new players.
