  1. I remember Ohio State wanting him when he came out of high school and actually thought they had him until the last minute, when Clemson stole him from us. He was very highly rated, the top Offensive tackle, if memory serves me correctly. I know Willie speaks very highly of him and think this might be a good project for Pollack. We'll see what transpires, but there's a lot of potential, I'd guess.
  2. That's nice to see, but his arm isn't the question to me. I doubt he'll have anywhere near the mobility he previously had. I mean, let's be honest here, how could he?
  3. Yeah, he also said most people don't realize it, but he was the one who decided to leave the team, not he other way around, and the fact that they refused to sign Whitworth and Zeitler was for him the final straw and decision maker. Perhaps that was a different interview...perhaps with Dave Lapham I'm thinking.

  5. Well the obvious reason being in both cases it was all about not spending free agency money on offensive linemen...the same point I have been making over and over.
  6. Daniel Jeremiah's final mock draft has him reversing course and coming to his senses finally suggesting the Bengals should draft Penei Sewell. On one of the sports shows this morning he explains his decision in more detail. https://www.nfl.com/news/daniel-jeremiah-2021-nfl-mock-draft-4-0-broncos-patriots-trade-up-for-qbs?campaign=Twitter_nfl_cfb
  7. Whit said afterward he wanted to stay in Cincy and said if they would have even made him an offer in the ballpark he would accept it, no matter if it was lower. The Bengals didn't even offer him half of what LA did, and that was the problem. They spit in his face. They DON'T spend decent money in free agency on offensive lineman and their only choice to acquire talent is through the draft.
  8. If they continue to throw that much, while not taking a more serious approach to fixing this OL, Joe Burrow will have a short career. Easy prediction here.
  9. The only reason I would suggest doing that is due to Zach Taylor's statements earlier this year, that his starting tackles are set. I actually don't believe that statement holds much water, TBH. I think he made that statement given the resources AT THAT TIME and after the draft that could all change and should change. That would be the only reason I would suggest they play Sewell at guard based upon those statements. Now, what I would do is start him at right tackle from day one and move Reiff inside to right guard. So when you're attempting to speak for me in particular please ma
  10. The problem with that thinking is just because someone might be listed as an OL he fits our needs, when that's not entirely correct. It would be a way to shoe-horn a prospect into a position he might not be 1005 capable of, or the correct fit. It goes back to that thinking of Mike Brown's from the 70-80s era when he stupidly said "All offensive linemen are interchangeable pieces". Nothing could be further from the truth in reality. I think Sewell best fits our immediate needs this year if they decide the need an immediate starter at right guard. He also has the capability to potent
  11. We can only have hope they do, so that it helps the Bengal's brass with a much easier decision that they are apparently trying to fuck up.
