  1. Don't pretend that Hernandez didn't have EXTENSIVE red flags on his character coming out of college, he did. Big time. #teamslikethepatriots
  2. This was really helpful to read, thanks for taking the time to write and post it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. No way Malone clears waivers to make the practice squad. No chance. He makes the roster, they are not going to want to have wasted a 4th round pick on him and not have him on the team.
  4. Yup. Was biking on Saturday and thought I would listen to sports talk to follow Bengals talk and the Saturday picks and Broo was on instead stirring the pot on Mixon pick. So I turned it off.
  5. Kiper behind paywall - anyone know what he said/grade he gave? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Didn't Billings and Jackson have clean bills of health when drafted last year? It's the NFL, injuries are a thing, potentially, for every player.
  7. Right? And those were dirty, and no amount of size would have helped save those injuries. The chances of frequency of dirty hits are lessened in today's NFL because of how game is called. But I don't see how an extra inch or two keeps Ross healthier from a dirty hit...
  8. I guess. But this is 2017, not 1987, and big safeties and linebackers can't really head hunt etc like they used to. At all.
  9. Danny Kelly at the Ringer sure liked it: https://theringer.com/2017-nfl-draft-first-round-grades-c644ac57056f
  10. 1. He's not "just" a speed guy - he is a polished route runner and has ability to get open quickly short as well as go long. So teams have to respect him at both levels and he should come already able to run the full route tree. 2. We can't block shit up front, but there was NO ONE available at 9 that we should have taken for o-line. Would have been a laughable reach to do so. So how do you help best a shaky line? How about make it REALLY hard for teams to go more than seven in the box? How about make them think twice about blitzing? Yes? Because a guy with Ross's speed opposite AJ Green with Tyler Eifert on the field and Boyd in the slot means that teams can't easily load up in the box. At least they will have to think twice about it. And Ross's ability to get open quickly short will further take pressure off the line. 3. Not sure why anyone mentions Boyd at any point with reference to Ross. Ross isn't a pure slot guy, Boyd is (Ross CAN play slot, but he can line up anywhere - Boyd is simply a slot guy). And Boyd is a glacier compared to Ross in terms of speed. 4. He's a football player, who happens to be fast as shit, not a fast guy who's trying to play football. He spent his first few years as DB, before becoming a wide receiver. Speaks to his understanding of the field and his toughness. 5. Since the team cleared him and his shoulder and said he will be ready for camp, I will take them at their word. I want him in a full camp, and assuming they are right, no health issues from me. In fact, that shoulder? He played the entire year last year with the torn labrum...so...that speaks pretty fucking highly of his toughness and willingness to be on the field ( I am a health-is-a-skill person). 6. His size doesn't bother me. Not in a league where i have had to watch Antonio Brown and Steve Smith torch people. And Victor Cruz. Etc. Opposite AJ Green, I don't think Ross is going to see a lot of double teams anyway. And if a physical corner tries to body him off the line, they better pray they don't miss. 7. Saw on twitter last night, in Bengals last 40 games where they have scored 23 or more points they are 37-1-2. Crosses my mind that they need to make sure they have given themselves as much of an opportunity to score that many then as they can. Last year, without Marvin Jones in particular, they were stuck in mud as an offense. Ross helps fix that right away. So, to sum up, thrilled that they pulled the trigger on this. Makes them better from the jump (assuming they are not lying and/or wrong about his shoulder recovery), and gives me legit hope for 2017.
  11. You are right! It gets even worse!
  12. I guess the front office will finally realize its dream of getting a 3rd round comp pick in a draft...well done, guys!
  13. Ced to LT. Dalton to ER. McCarron will be needed by week 2. Until he is in ER two weeks later. We should draft five QBs to get through the season. This front office is a joke.
