  1. I remember when he started his own board, sad to hear about this
  2. I was looking at some players that could be cut in the next few months that could be available to compete, replace, or add to the talent level at the offensive line; here are my top candidates in no particular order: -Kendall Lamm- Teaming him up with :Gaither-Davis could be good for the App St. star. With recent draft picks Lamm could be a cap casualty. - Nick Gates - The front office and fans love this guy but then they add 3 more players that are arguable better/drafted higher than him in the past 50 days. - David Quessenbarry - He's a smart player that can add value if he's healthy. The Titans drafted Wilson, signed Sambrailo in FA, and Kelly Dennis is very popular in Nash Vegas; leaving Danny in limbo. -Martinis Rankin - Could be the odd man out, if so he's definitely worth adding to this roster. The addition of Niang in the draft and Remmers in FA doesn't bode well for his future in KC. - Oli Udoh - He's young talent that could get cut in favor of a higher pick. Raw but has the tools to get better, physically he's gifted. He's going to have beat out more experienced guys to make the final roster. I believe guys like Douglas, Prince, and Redmond could be upgraded with these players.
  3. He wore a harness for most of his senior season, so it was pretty obvious that there was something going on with his shoulder. It's the Bengals responsibility to do their proper investigation and due diligence. No one forced the Bengals to draft Williams and so blaming him or Alabama is pointless and off base
  4. I like Logan Wilson and Jordyn Brooks, I would love to see the Bengals draft both of them
  5. What?? I agree that TJ has been doing a lot of bashing of his old team, I don't remember him being such a malcotent when he was playing here. You would think he would have more respect for the organization that wanted him when nobody else did. If not for the Bengals believing in him and giving him an opportunity he would just another gay squirrel with a ponytail at a disco busting his moves on the dance floor...
  6. https://www.cincinnati.com/story/sports/nfl/bengals/2020/04/13/cincinnati-bengals-nfl-draft-zac-taylor-quiets-trade-speculation-joe-burrow/2981994001/ Seems like the decision makers are on board with taking Burrow
  7. I thought he was more of Gold Star guy. As for the FA moves, Reader and Bell are solid acquisitions. I think they overpaid for McKenzie and Waynes. As for asinine, trading away an opportunity to draft a franchise QB that literally had the best season in CFB is definitely that....but you're obviously just smarter than everyone else. I'm sure that smart guys like you know that it's extremely difficult and rare to acquire a QB that is talented enough to win a Superbowl. I'm sure that a card carrying member of MENSA like yourself knows that there are only 6 Super Bowl winning QB's in the Super Bowl era that were signed as free agents. Basically, if you want to win a Super Bowl you HAVE to draft one or get extremely lucky and have a legendary defense. For a franchise that wants to win a Super Bowl you take the once in a lifetime talent at the most important position in the game... it's pretty simple if you think about it. A bunch of picks are good, but getting one great player is better.
  8. Exactly, this front office had 11 picks last year screwed that up...taking Drew Sample in the 2nd round...if not for Pratt coming on late in the season it would have been a complete bust. The last thing this front office needs is more picks, just more opportunities to screw it up. Take the player most likely to succeed, the best QB prospect in recent history...who happens to be from Ohio and actually likes the chili...
  9. Exactly....If Wilson is available at 33 I would be all over him. If not trade with Seattle for their 2 2nd round picks for the 33rd pick
  10. No reason to trade, every other QB in the draft has major red flags and this franchise needs QB moreso than any other position. Besides do think Mike Brown wants to pay 3-5 first round picks over the next two years.
  11. I haven't heard of Hart being a cancer in the locker room, not sure where you are getting that from.
  12. You know that PFF is based out of Cincy, makes since they would focus on Hall and Whit.
  13. Me too, which is why I would take him in the second round.
  14. Yeah, not sure how Shaun Merriman and Nick Keading outweigh two Super Bowl victories. 2 Super Bowl MVP's outweigh any stats that Rivers has accomplished.
  15. They changed out the LB and DB coach, Golden is a good coach and Jackson has extensive experience I think if there are the same issues with OL and other areas that haven't improved then there will be more turnover in the coaching staff next off-season.
  16. Wilson does have technical issues that need to be corrected but in the worst case he can provide quality depth, push Hart to improve, and replace him in a year or two. Best case he comes and continues to improve and is the next Willie Anderson.
  17. Absolutely, the need at OT is exponentially greater than WR or 3-4 LB/EDGE. Bobby Hart is the most proven OT on the roster and that is scary... Williams is a question mark and Johnson has played a limited amount of snaps. Not sure why the OT position hasn't been addressed in FA, but hopefully sooner than later more talent is added.
  18. If it were my decision I would draft an OT at 33 for a few reasons: 1. Protecting Burrow is the top priority and currently the talent at OT is questionable at best. 2. This draft is not deep with quality OT prospects and normally OT go early in the draft because it's perceived to be a premium position. Waiting until the later rounds will mean significantly less talented players are available. I really like Isaiah Wilson from UGA, played 27 games at RT in the SEC and is only getting better as matures. Physically he's a beast and a great athlete. He's young and really starting to put it all together. Many scouts think he came out to would be a first round pick if he stayed another year or two. If I were drafting for the Bengals I would go OT in the 2nd and 4th, LB in the 3rd and 5th, and WR in the 6th and 7th.
  19. I wish Dre the best, hopefully a change of scenery will help him continue his career.
  20. I think Andy is going to stick around for a while, insurance for injury and as the season progresses after the draft and injuries occur his trade value will rise

  22. That fumble was one of the worst plays I've ever seen, I like Dalton... great guy, but I don't want him as my starting QB.
  23. Wow...seems there's a lot of trauma going on here. Let's just say we disagree on many things, including Burrow and Dalton. Burrow is the hands down best player in the draft and it's not even close. Chase Young is the only other guy I would consider but he disappeared in the playoffs and that's what put Burrow over the top for me. And speaking of disappointing playoff performances....Andy Dalton didn't have a lot of help last year but he was a major contributor to 2-14 record. He displayed limited pocket awareness and mobility, poor accuracy on mid to long passes, and no moxie. No team in the NFL thinks Dalton is a legitimate starter and wants him to lead their franchise, great backup but never going to win the big game as a starter. As for the coaching staff is concerned I think the jury is still out. Last year this staff was assembled late and the poor draft/injuries didn't help. Now that Coronavirus is changing life as we know it, they are once again hampered from having a full off-season. Drafting Burrow gives Taylor a quality talent to develop and build an offensive scheme/ system around. Pairing Taylor with Burrow is the best move forward for the Bengals. As for winning a playoff game before you buy in....lol...ok whatever. Did you ever buy in during Marvin's tenure? Because we all know he never won a playoff game, so what have you been holding onto for the last 30 years or so???? Like I said, it's a traumatic experience being a Bengals fan...so I understand your POV, but I don't agree.
  24. I disagree with that, of 32 teams in the league about 75% of them have QB's that were drafted in the first round. This year the Bengals have the first overall pick while the best player in the draft is a QB and it just so happens the Bengals could use an upgrade at that position...so why would you trade for a lesser player? The Bengals have 3 realistic options for a QB in 2020 if they trade the pick: Tua, Herbert, and Dalton. Herbert is closer to Blaine Gabbert than Joe Burrow, he's a great athlete that is a mediocre QB. Dalton just lead his team to a 2-14 season, got benched for a 4th round rookie, and currently has zero trade interest in the open market. Tua is fragile and all ready broken up, if he can't last 12 to 13 games a season in the SEC without a major injury how can he survive the NFL? Outside of those 3 options I don't think you can make a realistic case for any other QB to start for the Bengals in 2020. There really aren't too many viable options outside of taking Burrow if you're the Bengals, everything else is a huge gamble.
  25. If anyone watched any significant CFB games this year then it's obvious why Burrow is the only choice for the #1 overall pick. He wasn't any on any Heisman watchlists, he had zero hype coming into the season but it did the hardest thing to do in sports. He changed the minds and opinions of scouts and analyst that had him pegged as a certain type of player and put up a historically great season that made his talent undeniable. There are no sure things in any draft but Burrow is as close as it gets, I can't remember a player that performed better than him in college. If you think you are going to trade back and draft anyone anywhere close to the talent level of Burrow then that is a huge mistake and extremely unnecessary risk to take, imo.
