  1. I was watching NFL Network... they had heard the Bengal's were in love with Adams.... They liked him and I've seen several posts now that think its a great move and it helps with Red Zone production, which we certainly need improvement on. We were missing Marvin Jones speed... His injury is a shoulder so he played last year and had a great season after his knee injury... so he recovered. Hope he stays healthy and if he does, this WILL help our offense and our return game

  3. From ESPN Insiders (This pick is growing on me): Overall Football Traits Production 2 Height-Weight-Speed 2 Durability 4 Intangibles 1 1 = Exceptional2 = Above average3 = Average4 = Below average5 = Marginal Wide Receiver Specific Traits Separation Skills 2 Elite acceleration off the line and top-end speed to strike fear in CBs. Drops his weight quickly. Excellent acceleration out of cuts. Shows ability to generate separation in a small area. Really improved his stem savvy. Drives cornerbacks off the line and is able to quickly drop his weight on comebacks, hitches, etc. Lacks ideal size and play strength. Will have some struggles against quality press-man cornerbacks, as seen versus Alabama in the CFP semi-final game. Runs out of his own cleats at times and will lose balance (throwing of timing of route). Ball Skills 2 Above average focus and hand-eye coordination. Good body control when working the sidelines; knows how to make his feet die in bounds. Good job of tracking deep ball over his shoulder but needs to do a better job of high pointing. Waits for it to come down to him, which allows DB extra time to recover/contend. Inconsistent on contested-catch opportunities. Big play ability 1 Scored 24 TDs on 134 career offensive touches (TD to every 5.6 touches). Elite acceleration upfield after catch. If he catches a crease it's likely over. Good suddenness after the catch and will frequently make first defender miss with sharp cut after catch. Instincts are just adequate after the catch. Not as elusive as expected.Lacks ideal size to win jump ball but has elite vertical speed to take the top off. Also has homerun hitting ability as a return man. Four career KOR TDs. Competitiveness 2 Edgy player. Highly competitive. Will occasionally get frustrated when the QB is off-target but he holds himself to same level of accountability. Plays a lot of snaps on offense and handles KORs. Shows great stamina and competes for four quarters. Lacks size and strength to sustain as a blocker sometimes, but gives adequate effort. 1 = Exceptional2 = Above average3 = Average4 = Below average5 = Marginal Status Report Ross had 33 catches his first two seasons (2013-14) -- and he was temporarily moved to starting CB for four games in 2014 because of injuries at that position. He then missed the entire 2015 season with a knee injury before returning in 2016, which was his breakout year (Rec: 81-1,150-14.2-17. KOR: averaged 24.1 yards with 4 career TDs). Ross has become well known for breaking Chris Johnson's Combine 40 record with his 4.22 time, but he's much more than a track speedster. Ross is a first-round talent at WR and brings additional value in the return game. -March 6, 2017
  4. I thought we'd go to the defensive side of the ball... but I'm OK with this pick. Love the speed and will be a killer returner!
  5. They have Kitna on here! LOL Mr Choke himself!
  6. uhhh.... Falcons will get that time for their brand new stadium... that's what I think at least....
  7. Has anyone done the new Free parking at Washington Park and take the streetcar down to the game? Just curious if the first 100 cars are there early, if there is a huge wait after the game? Any challenges? I'm thinking of doing this for the Cleveland game and just want to have an idea what to expect and what time I need to be there to get the free parking. Thanks for any input
  8. https://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2016/04/19/draft-pff-draft-board-cincinnati-bengals/ PFF is putting together team-specific draft boards for all 32 franchise using our draft rankings and evaluation of how each player fits in specific schemes. Included are three ideal targets for each team with their first-, second-, and third-round picks, along with a team-specific draft board [scroll down to bottom of article] that includes every player in PFF’s draft rankings. Here is the entry for the Cincinnati Bengals: Round 1 (24th overall)Ryan Kelly, C, Alabama Russell Bodine has had his chances, and the need to upgrade at the position has become apparent. Kelly is the top center on our board, and the scheme fit couldn’t be better. The senior is a mauler in the run game and had one of the more dominant stretches we saw from a center all year leading up to the national title game. Corey Coleman, WR, Baylor Coleman is more than just a speedster, and if he lasts until pick No. 24, I imagine the Bengals would be ecstatic to hand a card in with his name on it. Coleman was on pace to be the top-graded receiver last year by a mile when Seth Russell was healthy. Even with a third-string quarterback under center, Coleman still managed 3.97 yards per route run, the third-highest total in the FBS. Karl Joseph, S, West Virginia With Reggie Nelson walking to Oakland, the safety position next to George Iloka has an opening. Joseph is the only safety outside of Jalen Ramsey (who played the position in 2014) we’ve deemed worthy of a possible first-round selection. The former Mountaineer may have been a lock first-rounder if he hadn’t missed most of his senior season. He was playing out of his mind with five interceptions in four games before being lost for the year with a knee injury. Round 2 (55th overall)Cyrus Jones, CB, Alabama Jones has all the tools to be a slot cornerback right away and potentially grow into a full-time starter on the outside. He was the seventh-highest-graded cornerback in the country last year, but his height (5-foot-10) will push him down a bit. Austin Johnson, DT, Penn State Johnson had the second-best run-defense grade of any nose tackle in the FBS last year. His best fit is as a one-technique, a position that Cincinnati uses as much as any team in the NFL. With Domata Peko losing steam in his early 30s, Johnson could bring some pop back to the Bengals’ run defense. Leonte Carroo, WR, Rutgers Carroo is another guy that may have gone higher if he could have stayed healthy the past two years. In only 363 snaps a season ago, the Rutgers wideout averaged 4.11 yards per route run, the highest figure of anyone in the draft class. At the Senior Bowl, he posted the highest win percentage of any receiver in the one-on-ones. Round 3 (87th overall)De’Vante Harris, CB, Texas A&M Harris was one of the stingier corners in the country last year, allowing only 275 yards in 877 snaps. He has a reckless streak, though, and lacks the pure speed to get away with it in the NFL. There is definitely upside here for a mid-rounder, however. Bronson Kaufusi, DE, BYU The Bengals certainly have a mold for their defensive ends, and it’s one that Kaufusi fits. He might not be the physical freak that Margus Hunt was coming out, but Kaufusi is a much more polished football player. Kaufusi was tops among all interior players in pass-rushing productivity last season. Keyarris Garrett, WR, Tulsa Garrett is a physically-imposing receiver at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds. He’s also got some speed to burn, and was one of the most productive deep receivers a year ago. His 725 yards on deep passes finished as second-most in the FBS last season. Then they post a whole draft grade/board... so go to link to see more. I find it very interesting and not would I believe... but interesting
  9. Been too busy to post much but read some. Still find this is the BEST forum!!
  10. So agree with this assessment. So disapointed in the NFL Officials on top of our players loosing their cool (Jones). I don't think Burfict's hit was a purposeful head shot.
  11. Not sure why this isn't what I got in the mail :-( I got plain old tix...
  12. Cincinnati Bengals Verified account ‏@Bengals 2m2 minutes ago NEWS- #Bengals make following moves: -Place LB Lamur on IR -Sign LB Roach to roster from practice squad
  13. I just want the right personnel on the field on time. No time outs due to lining up due to wrong personnel or doing some fancy adjusting if there isn't time to adjust. I want time outs taken only when we REALLY need them!
