  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. I haven't heard of Hart being a cancer in the locker room, not sure where you are getting that from.
  4. You know that PFF is based out of Cincy, makes since they would focus on Hall and Whit.
  5. Me too, which is why I would take him in the second round.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. I wish Dre the best, hopefully a change of scenery will help him continue his career.
  12. 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

  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. I don't follow your logic, I don't know how trading the number one overall pick is conservative..if anything it's risky. The way the draft works is the best talent, the players with the highest probability of success are chosen first. Trading out of that pick and hoping to get a comparable talent isn't conservative, it's extremely risky. If the best player, with the highest chance of success, at most important position on the field is available then passing on him favor of getting multiple less talented players is risky. Having the most picks in the draft, doesn't increase your likely of success, it's the location of those picks that matter. Last year the Bengals had 11 picks in the draft and got basically nothing out all of them except for one and that was late in the season. I'll say it again, quality over quantity.
  19. Quality over quantity, a once in a generation player like Burrow is worth more than the 3rd best LB/WR/OT in draft.
  20. I hope he's successful here, however with how bad our LB's have been I think it's going to take more than Bynes and some rookies to fix it. Bynes has been a backup for the majority of his career, relying on a player that has started less than 50% of the games he's in which he has played doesn't seem like the best possible solution. Bynes could be a part of the solution, but I believe this team needs to more proven talent besides Bynes.
  21. I agree, a meritocracy is the best way to build a winning culture. However, the Bengals drafted Williams in the first round and recently cut the only player with any experience playing his position, it's his job. Ideally they will bring in a vet to back him up and provide some competition.
  22. I seriously doubt that happens, he plays LT and the coaches have given that job to Jonah. A proven vet to be backup Jonah is a good idea but Williams isn't that guy.
  23. He started 7 games and 46 total tackles last season, if he's a starter he isn't very productive.
  24. I agree, signing CB's and one backup OG isn't going to help protect Burrow. I'm glad the Bengals were able to get some good players in FA, but they haven't addressed the weakest areas of the roster, signing two backups in Bynes and XSF isn't a viable solution.
  25. Slow down there Hoss.... still need a few LB's and to actually play some games before you can even have that conversation
