  1. Rudolph looked pretty good, I wouldn't be surprised if he played well. Ben was probably playing hurt and holding the team back, so maybe Rudolph is an upgrade over Ben. If that is the case then the trade will work out, getting a top talent in an area of need is good business.
  2. I wasn't there but from watching the game on TV it seemed like some guys weren't laying it all out, specifically #27 &#52. That was a pitiful defensive performance, one of the worst of all time and the stats back that up. The defensive alignments worked well in Seattle, it was the effort and the tackling that wasn't the same. As for the booing, atleast it shows that the fans are emotionally invested in the outcome of the game.
  3. Whomever put this roster together needs to be fired, going into the season with this oline and LB corp was a disaster waiting to happen.
  4. That's important, hopefully they will rebound and play better in the following weeks.
  5. Yeah let's not act like Dalton didn't directly contribute to this loss by his fumbles and inconsistent play. Dalton in the 3rd quarter left a lot to be desired. Sure he threw for a bunch of yards, but ultimately the Bengals lost a game they should have won.
  6. The NFL was started by organization crime bosses, the information is readily available for anyone to find. If you think billionaires are going to leave the result of games up, in which billions of dollars are wagered every week, to random chance and not do everything in their power to influence the outcomes then you are naive at best. Every week there are way too blatant of missed calls that occur that have direct influence on the outcome of the game to just be coincidental. If you think the NFL isn't fixed then I bet you think that WWE is real as well, it's all sports entertainment.
  7. But it provides more opportunities to sell advertising via commercials....after all it's a business first and foremost.
  8. He was slightly above average in some areas and slightly below in others. Last night was awful, he has to improve dramatically if the Bears are going to do anything. The other teams are going to force him to beat them by throwing the ball and based on last night he doesn't look capable.
  9. Trubisky looked awful, the Bears passed on Mahommes and Watson for this guy....someone is getting fired if he doesn't improve. The Bears lost to their most hated rival at home even though they gave up only 10 points, something they haven't done since 1932. They wasted a great defensive performance, holding a future HOFer to 10 points isn't easy.
  10. The Bengals are going to have a big test of their physical and mental toughness on Sunday. It will be interesting to see how they respond to the crowd noise and physical nature of the game. On offense the Seahawks are going to want to pound the run as their WR corp is inexperienced and banged up, the defense will have to bow their backs and make them pass the ball. On defense the Seahawks have a solid front seven but can be beat in the long passing game. Can the Bengals protect Dalton long enough to give him enough time to find the open guy and can they run the ball enough to stay out of 3rd and long situations which will allow the pass rush and crowd noise to become a factor? We shall see Sunday afternoon.
  11. The Seahawks will be dealing with a few notable injuries, especially to their WR corp... https://12thmanrising.com/2019/09/03/seahawks-injuries-bengals-game/
  12. I think the Bengals will use a 5-2-4 defense when they are not in a nickel package. It's the only reason why keeping 11 DL and 4 LB makes sense.
  13. Click and Clack Tappet brought to you by...... https://www.cartalk.com/content/staff-credits
  14. So what happens if 2 of our LBs get injured during a game? It's definitely happened before, it might happen again.
  15. I like this move, keeping quality players around never hurts.

  17. Yeah, getting Trent Williams or a comparable talent would be unBengal like
  18. Ol' I wanna speak to the manager face...I'm sure the Bengals media will get right on it for you, sir. What is your obsession with Westerman, clearly you hold him in higher regard than the rest of the NFL. Maybe you get a GM job ala Mike Mayock and sign Westerman so you can finally see him realize his potential.
  19. Still I would say that a team runs a 4-3 base defense would keep more than 4 LBs on the 53 man roster. I would say 5 or 6 at the most, but who I don't know. Maybe Davis, or some other cap casualty to be determined later.
