    Wow I hate to read this about my Bengals.  

    If we weren't the lamest franchise Eric Bieniemy would be the coach or we would be getting setup to sign him after the season. Dude gave his heart and soul to this team. Little guy played like a focking lion out there. He deserved the coaching job more than anyone.  At least a shot.




    What are Zac Taylor's connections to this Jim Turner guy prior to the Bengals? 


    Was Turner hired (hand picked) by Taylor? 





    It's looking like Bieneimy would have been a better choice. He probably would have been able to assemble a better staff, atleast one without a guy with negative track record like Turner.

    So let me see if I have this correct.....back in 2015 they didnt think Andrew Whitworth was worth a multiyear contract so the Bengals plan was to use their 1st and 2nd round picks on 2 tackles who sucked and are long gone and then make a deal with the Bills to drop 10 spots in the 1st round of the 2018 draft and take on Cordy Glenn and his nagging injuries plus his remaining $30 million salary and then use another 1st round pick for a tackle in 2019.


    My bad, I forgot the Bengals did get that 5th round comp pick for letting Whit walk in free agency.


    That Bengals FO is sure a smart bunch.......



    It was a comp pick, which is basically the most valuable thing in the universe. But seriously though how could the Bengals have known that Whit would still be playing at a high level, it's not like he was coming off Pro Bowl and All Pro seasons....oh wait, he was...


    At least the front office saved a few million dollars by not re-signing Whit, score one for the cheap guys!!!

    The football team is just something he has to do to keep the Brown Family Trust operating.  It's at best a sideline hobby and at worst an annoying distraction.  His body language in that Ravens game says it all.

    I've never seen Jerry Jones, another owner/GM, look like he's sleeping at a game. 


    One of the most popular cliches that the talking heads spew is it all starts from the top, and this is what the Bengals franchise is working with:

    Agree.  He gets credit for constructing the roster for the consecutive playoff run but he has been here since 1999 and that is not much of a resume to me.

    I still believe Zimmer's defense was a major part of that playoff run as anything.

    In a what have you done for me lately business like the NFL, his track record over the last 4 years hasn't been good. 


    His hubris, believing that he had constructed a competitive roster and it was Marvin Lewis that was holding the team back, has directly affected this team. 


    No one outside of PBS believes Dalton can win a big game, but he's still the franchise QB. The oline has been in shambles but the big fix is an injured draft pick and resigning Bobby Hart. The LB corp is awful, so lets add a 3rd pick and never play him...my point is Tobin's personnel decisions have been questionable at best and the result have the Bengals at 0-6 and none even considering a Super Bowl as a realistic goal.

    Good for him...hope he is past this.

    Absolutely, I'm just concerned about his future. If it takes him 2+ months to recover from a concussion what happens if/when he suffers another one. 


    There was no obvious play in which he suffered a concussion. So what happens if he self reports another injury, could it force him to retire?


    Very interested to see how this plays out.

    He sure seems to act like it's hereditary.  He inherited a team, not the knowledge of how to run it.  I don't recall him pulling a sword from a stone.

    It's the ugly side of nepotism, he's in the GM position for the Bengals because of nepotism and not merit. The whole front office reeks of nepotism and it's the main reason why this franchise has been inept for so long.


    From Mike Brown, Duke Tobin, and Katie & Troy Blackburn; they are all in their current roles because of who their daddy is/was, not because they were hands down the best person for the job.

    I think the question is, "Will the Bengals win a Superbowl with AJ and/or Geno"?  The answer is no.  It's not their fault, but why not trade them to TRY to make the team better?  Saying the same does us no good...at least trading them for draft capital there's a chance we hit the jackpot and compete for a championship.  My question to you is, what's the point of keeping AJ and Geno if someone were going to offer us premium picks?  If people are happy keeping our declining stars and going 4-12 every year, you're rooting for the right team.  #whodey #samedey 

    They could win with AJ and Geno, if they got a better QB that can make plays when the game is on the line.

    Having never been a head coach of anything at any time in his life, I suppose his performance as an NFL head coach is about what we should have expected...on the plus side, he's a bright young man who should be able to grow into the job as time goes on. But if he doesn't learn and develop we've got another Dave Shula to suffer through, and that's really gonna suck.

    How sure are we that Taylor is some offensive genius because his offense is struggling to score more than 20 points per game.  The offensive is horrible in the red zone, he makes bad decisions on challenges and play calls, and is roster moves so far leave a lot to be desired.


    I know Brown is on this search for the next Bill Waslh, aka the one that got away, but I don't think Taylor is that guy.

    We don't have an OL or a defense.   You could put 3 Tom Bradys under center & it wouldn't matter.   Dalton looks spent to me too but he's really the least of our worries.  If all our roster was his kind of average we would've won a game by now.


    Dalton is holding this team back, they should have won a game by now if he could play better. 


    We both know Dalton will never win a Super Bowl so why not move on now.
