  1. So it is looking like we can go BPA in the draft. That said, what specific positions would you like to be addressed in the first three picks? CB TE DT
  2. soP looked so old and feeble when he accepted the AFC trophy. More than ever he should be no where near decisions. If they win the SB it will be in spite of him not because of him. Yes, players and coaches speak nice of him but that’s mostly because he rarely fires anyone.
  3. This is a great f’n’ team with budding stars and a good culture. Fix the Oline, improve at CB, add a stud excited to join, and this team will hang with any of them. Don’t discount what they did and can do.
  4. Expectations are a funny thing. We tasted the final game and all that comes with it. Like that taste.
  5. Is anything short of a Super Bowl appearance next year a failure?
  6. I guess what I’m simply saying is that every life long fan deserves that one moment of championship joy. It would be sad to root for a team so hard for 60, 70, or 80 years and never get it. For MLB and NFL fans it’s a real possibility it escapes them. I’m no Jack Handy.
  7. As for the Oline - the advantage we have now is we can sign "tried and true" FAs. Nothing to chance here by relying solely on the draft and B list projects. Yes, we'll draft Olinemen too. Signing two of the best FA Olinemen will go a long way in signaling to the others that this is the team to join. Side note - let's not get drunk on cap money and thinking we can buy the pieces to a SB victory. Culture really matters. Re-signing Bates, Uzomah, and BJ Hill must get done. I'd be fine to get Flowers back too. That dude is hungry to help wherever he can.
  8. The NFL does a tremendous job of attracting the life long fan - heart and soul. People emotionally live and die by their teams. Some even tattoo their bodies, paint their vehicles, decorate their houses, and spend a ton of money on tickets, travel, and apparel. For a life long fan - especially of a perennial losing team - vindication comes in the form of winning a championship. Crowned the best team beating all post season contenders put in front of them. So here's the weird thought that came to me - how awful is to put all this emotion into a team your entire life and never get the joy of a Super Bowl victory. There must be life long Bengals fans that have passed away and never got that vindication. Ugh. How freakin' awful. Just saw the stat that the Vikings and Bills are both 0-4 in the Super Bowl. That's some life long pain. Okay, I'll get off the morbid soapbox. Enjoy your day.
  9. We all question the play calling of nearly every coach at one point or another. I can say I really had no problem with him going for it on 4th down, etc. I question the personnel sometimes but I've been proven wrong. Zac Taylor is the modern day coach that you want in order to move forward. Players love him, not afraid of analytics and tech, and isn't stuck in "this is how it's always been done." Glad we have him. He's be a positive factor in bringing in key FAs.
  10. I thought it was really good. Including the sound production. I think this was the necessary bridge from old rappers to future shows with younger rappers that align with the taste of the younger fans that the NFL needs to pull in to keep the big machine rolling.
  11. Any reports on how badly he was hurt? Clearly wasn't 100%.
  12. I didn't have a problem going for it on 4th and 1. They have made those some many times before and that would have set the tone. I expected to be trailing at halftime and knew they would score on the second half opening drive as they had done before. Was confident when we went up 7. Once Burrow got hurt I knew we would have a hard time scoring again. Great season and we got a fantastic taste of the Super Bowl. Winning a ring is the only the satisfaction for the next few years. What's bothering me now is that it's going to be hard to get back there again. So many good teams in the AFC. Gotta build the Oline. The advantage we have now is that we can attract proven FAs and use picks to get quality in the second through fourth rounds.
  13. There's something I heard 1,000 times and completely forgot about. Nice pull, Old.
  14. Incredibly fun and we had the lead. When Burrow got hurt I knew it was going to end bad. Stings now but great squad.
  15. Go, thank you!!! After a bunch of debate of who could go and when, I think I'm just going to stick to this plan of a small party at the house. Regardless, very cool offer by you. Thank you.
  16. Thanks, LeTigre. All online sales are out of stock and cutout wouldn't come until Monday ☹️
  17. Holy hell - been away quite awhile myself and just read this thread - shit hasn't changed. Welcome back, Old, I think.
  18. Unfortunately I'm not going to LA - was going to just go hang out and not even go into the game but the hotels are ridiculous. Anyway, going have a small party at the house but there are no Bengals party supplies anywhere. Are there store in Cincy that sell online? Thanks.
  19. Damn you got a good memory! Been thinking of all those dark days on the enquirer board. This feels great! Got a good squad.
  20. Just hung the flag and cranked up the orange lights!! We’ve waited a long time for this. Let’s go!!!! Share your house decorations. Would love to see them!!!
  21. [quote name='CincyInDC' timestamp='1314305031' post='1021002'] a Ravens fan once tried to get a rise out of me and Jamie, but we [i]were [/i]wearing Bengals jerseys in M&T Bank Stadium. I suppose we had it coming. [/quote] I go to the Bengals game every year in Baltimore and, comparatively speaking, the fans there are pretty tame. Walking out the stadium it's hard to tell if they won or lost. It's the complete opposite in Philly. Hell, baseball in Philly is far more brutal for opposing fans.
