  1. So they can talk about how tough he is for playing through injury. It's only a bruised vag.
  2. Drinking game: You have to drink every time they mention him or show him on the sideline.
  3. Is he referring to the stealers or bengals since he was last with the stealers?
  4. Not really. There were plenty of miserable seasons during the Paul Brown era. And as many Super Bowl wins.
  5. We know who will win worst thread every week if this continues all season.
  6. For rebuilding, it's about normal. With all of the turnover in the last 2 off-seasons, we should start to see some fruit this season. A .500 season, give or take, then onward from there.
  7. QB is only one position. Our record wouldn't have been much different with 16 games of Burrow. This season will hinge on the play calling, a better OL and a much better defense, but a more experienced Burrow will obviously help. And if the unspeakable happens again, Allen will be in a much better position with the tools around him and a better defense. I think he is solid as a backup.
  8. I'm sure I'm not the only one that was wondering how many of those viking OL penalties would've been called on the stealers. And undersexed grizzly bear is comic gold.
  9. Good - Dalvin Cook-61 yards rushing. 67 total for vikes.
  10. All this talk about Burrow, is nobody else excited about how much potential this defense has? A lot of new veterans to gel, but once they get cohesive, they could push top 10. And that would help Burrow and the offense.
  11. Right. And we're only barely behind Buffalo, who is supposed to have one of the top fan bases. Why would anybody be surprised that we're anywhere near the bottom when we're a small market. Also, I thought everybody was complaining about Mike Brown making too much money. Now he doesn't make enough? The "fans" here love to post anything they dig up that they think makes the team look bad. Like we don't get enough of that daily from the media. I really think that some members here think that Mike Brown reads these posts and they can guilt him in to stepping down. Even though it is obvious that he already has as far as football operations. Or he miraculously decided to start spending a lot of money in FA the last 2 years.
  12. If an OL is solid, you can plug any decent RB in there. That's why there's always no name RBs getting big yards for good offenses. Then they get a big contract with a new team with a struggling offense and disappear again.
  13. I think Seibert will be solid. The turds cut him for Parkey, then just cut Parkey. Their kickers must be on a short leash. Don't blame them. There's always kickers available. Slye and Badgley were cut too. Not sure if they were picked up. If not, they will both kick somewhere this season. Probably Parkey too.
  14. The season hasn't even started yet so how can they get more from the picks? We don't know what kind of season Chase will have and I don't think they planned on Cartman starting week 1 when they drafted him. Fortunately, this season doesn't hinge solely on the success of the first 2 draft picks as you seem to think. And everything is fine. I think it's progressing nicely. Which is a much better attitude than, oh no, we suck again. Even before the season starts.
  15. Who is getting personal? I just don't get the knee jerk negativity. Carman looked pretty good in pre-season, but Mike Brown commented on him being drafted, so it was his pick, so Carman's going to suck? It's obvious that MB's not calling the shots any more. Just look at the last 2 FA seasons with all the money spent and the shit load of trades. After 2 decades of almost exclusively building through the draft. And yes, Chase has the jitters. He's a rookie and hasn't played in 2 years. Hopefully, it will click, but it doesn't have to this season. We already had a strong receiving corps, so anything he does this season is a bonus. But everybody is expecting him to be the top receiver, which is silly. Which is a lot of unnecessary pressure. Maybe, once he realizes that he doesn't have to do it all, he might relax and start producing. But if he only has WR3 type stats this season, he will surely be called a bust on here. Outstanding rookies are the exception and there will probably be less this year with so many of them opting out last year.
  16. Same old "Same old Bengals" post. Should we start the 2022 draft thread?
  17. Why are you lumping in the 90s? To pad your point obviously. If you're going to cherry pick, why not say they are only a couple of seasons removed from being in the playoffs 7 out of 11 seasons? How many teams have done that including 5 in a row? Yet, they were never in the media super bowl conversation and never will be unless they actually make it to the super bowl. The browns were constantly in it when they hadn't been to the playoffs in 20 years. And a small market is no excuse to hate on a team. If they're just pandering to bigger markets, they're not really football analysts, just marketing experts. The real reason is obvious. They hate Mike Brown and they hate Cincinnati in general for its conservative reputation. It's not hard to find Cincinnati bashing articles that aren't sports related.
