  1. You're comparing an offense led by Carson Palmer (who was basically a top 5 QB when healthy) to one that has Andy Dalton (who is not a top 5 QB when healthy). But I do find it interesting that we somehow moved up from 22 to 18 in offense with a rookie QB, a rookie AJ Green, and two guys named Jerome Simpson and Andre Caldwell. I also don't understand the defense argument. Having a bad defense would mean more throwing, correct? It would also mean more time playing from behind correct? Wouldn't that usually lead to more yards, when considering a mixture of needing to make a comeback and never having the chance to play conservatively because your defense is so apt to giving up points? And if Brat is so talented as an offensive mastermind, why can't he seem to hold a job after he left this country club of an organization?
  2. You're the same guy who said that losing Bratkowski would hurt the team more than it would help them. Your football knowledge is not beyond reproach. We'll how he does in Denver.
  3. I'd place RB at the bottom of the list, no doubt about it. That's why I can't understand the Fournette love on here. If you have a good line, pretty much any RB you put back there will be successful. Perhaps if we had a center worth a damn, we wouldn't all be so worried about replacing a guard.
  4. Probably for the same reason they chose to activate a 3rd string RB over their first round pick. It boils down to the fact that Marvin Lewis is mentally challenged and would be exposed as such if the local media wasn't just a bunch of sycophants. Btw, how great did those special teams look after Peerman came back!!!!!!
  5. I'm a pessimist and I'll assume that they don't really have anything up their sleeve. I agree about Whitworth (particularly is sub-par run-blocking) but it's the ppl that are replacing him that infuriate me. Ogbuehi may have potential but through college and the pros he has never actually produced at a high level. I'm not going to assume that the potential is going to be realized soon. I disagree about guards. The interior of the line helps enormously in the run game. I don't think Zeitler was great, but he was surrounded by bums. Again, I don't see anyone special replacing him.
  6. The last paragraph is such an important point. Teams roll over money so that they can spend it when they have arrived within their window of making a run at a super bowl. The Bengals were in that window. Instead of going all out, they decided to keep rolling money over. The window looks to be closed for now. AJ Green is 29. I'd say he probably has another 4 prime years left, barring injury. Next year looks bleak. When does the window open again? What was the roll over money for?
  7. Even if you roll over about 6-8 mill (generous) for extensions, they still have room left. A lot more than 2-3 million. Getting rid of even one of Maualuga/Pac frees up even more. Why they can't make these moves tells me everything I need to know about the incompetents who run things here.
  8. They caught lightning in a bottle by finding a QB and WR in the same draft. You use that good fortune to try and win a SB. They never did that.
  9. I don't understand the bad contract part. They guaranteed 15 million to him. If they only get one season out of him, that's still not horrible for one of the best LT's in the game. 2nd year only has $2.5 million guaranteed. What did they risk? They had cap room this year and decided that the best way to break in their most prized possession is by not getting him killed from the blind side. Not going to fault them for it.
  10. It would be nice if the organization decided to put the best team possible on the field when our best player in decades is 29 years old. I'm crazy like that, i guess.
  11. Probably, but how does adding DJ Fluker improve this team from where it was last year. $5 million dollar guys are nice, but when you only won 6 games last year, where do you make the case that they are improving?
  12. Who wants to get angry tonight?!?!?!?!?! How about you read this gem from Hobson: $2-3 million left, people. Better spend it wisely.
  13. IT depends if the Bengals would go to two years. If they would, it would make more sense to stay in Cincy if it was only about money.
  14. No one is. But why is it so hard to believe that someone would want to leave this? They aren't leaving much at all. This team won 6 fucking games last year. The Rams won 4. And considering they're coach isn't Marvin Fucking Lewis, they're probably still closer to a super bowl than the Bengals.
  15. As opposed to the wonders of Cincinnat, OH, northern KY? the one thing I can never understand is why whenever a player leaves, the fans just can't even comprehend why he would ever want to get away from this. We're not the fucking Patriots. He isn't leaving much of anything over here. Furthermore, who says Whitworth is actually leaving for more money? Whit is only guaranteed one year in LA before they could cut him with about 2 mill in dead money. If he doesn't perform, he likely WILL be cut. If he could have somehow negotiated a two year deal in Cincy, it essentially would be a guaranteed 2 years worth of full salary because this team doesn't make smart, cut-threat moves (see Maualuga, Peko, Hall) when necessary.
