  1. Note the wrist bands for LSU and Athens High School
  2. Isn't that what happened to Placebo Burris? Self inflicted by a loaded pistol with the safety in his pocket? In a night club, saw a hot girl and schwinnnggg BANG!
  3. Ross has blazing speed from the line right up to the first defensive player to jam him about four feet into his route. Also have to factor in that he stops his run downfield to ask directions because he forgot where he is supposed to go. Besides IR.
  4. Chris Smith visited. Signed with Panthers. Used us to up the price? Maybe. But fuck him.
  5. https://bengalswire.usatoday.com/2020/03/03/dre-kirkpatrick-hot-seat-cincinnati-bengals-cut-candidate/ Could Dre Kirkpatrick be on the hot seat this offseason with the Cincinnati Bengals? That's our boy Kirkpatrick, oft-targeted by opposing quarterbacks and Bengals fans alike, carries a hefty cap number into next season. The Zac Taylor-led coaching staff wiggling out of that number and making additions to cornerback through other means has been a consistent hypothetical from the fanbase (and before Taylor’s arrival, really). During a comprehensive look at combine takeaways, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic might’ve provided the first serious fuel for the proverbial fire: “We’ve likely seen the end of Darqueze Dennard’s time in Cincinnati with both sides focused in other directions. The Bengals would like to use the money saved on letting go of Dre Kirkpatrick to help fund a younger, high-quality replacement.” If Taylor’s staff has seen enough from Kirkpatrick, who posted a 61.7 grade at Pro Football Focus last year and let up three touchdowns on 30 targets, cutting him would certainly make some sense. Kirkpatrick is the team’s third-highest cap charge in 2020 at about $11 million and cutting him would save around $8 million against the cap. But there’s a catch — that would leave the Bengals without a starting boundary player while already losing Darqueze Dennard to the market. The coaching staff presumably likes Darius Phillips, but it would necessitate a starter-quality add in free agency. Both cutting Kirkpatrick and being more active than usual in free agency is probably “believe it when seeing it” material for Bengals faithful. But with Taylor’s staff sitting on a full year of experience and film and not currently scrambling to merely assemble a staff, big changes could be coming.
  6. What he said. Well, assuming someone really super doesn't slide.
  7. Since the old board died, have not seen anyone, don't know who, if anyone still goes. End Zone Russ' (EZR) print shop primo tailgate site closed and has since reopened as a trendy hipster coffee shoppe. Used to tailgate in the open parking lot next to it but that was fenced in and may even have been closed in and turned into some sort of retail or something. I don't know. I don't even pass there now. Go straight down Walnut into the heart of The Banks and over to the stadium. I think they were meeting over the river in KY somewhere but too far to walk from my parking spot by Fountain Square. I would like to run into them again. When I was on the field with Ickey Woods last season we were right in front of the south end zone (and close to 104), was looking for MOC and crew and did not see them. They may have bailed. I would bet C Hamet Bengali/Coyotele is still there. They always hung out until the last minute to go in. I think the guys on here do, too. I have hung around the entrance to 104 looking for an unusual suspect. I go early and chill before going to my seat. Beat the rush through the security and into the stadium.
  8. Not sure about Mims. At least in the second round. Dugger intrigues the hell out of me. Would not break my heart to see him put in stripes at 2 just to see what he can do. Eventual Williams replacement if nothing else and the thought of him and Jesse Bates at safety is a good thought. But if the Bengals do as the Bengals do, round 2 will be a wide receiver with some other juicy prospects still on the board. Who won't be there at 3. Still thinking trade down rather than taking the cream of the crop is a very real Bengal possibility.
  9. My seats are nowhere near. I walk past 104 on the Plaza level on the way to my seats. Would really like to run into you all some time.
  10. Another personal fave is Kiki DeAyla. Don't think he ever made it on the field but makes the Bengals All Name Team whose captain is Samoa Samoa.
  11. The recently departed Buckeye Bozo posted on his Facialbook page that he votes for Steve Tovar.
  12. Maybe not exactly "not priorities" but "more pressing needs elsewhere". Can't wait for the whole draft. Not just the first pick but all the rest. Some really interesting guys will go lower. I so don't want them to do the usual Bengal thing and pick a bunch of chumps with so much talent that will undoubtedly fall into the second and third round. Be great to pick up an extra second rounder for Andy and dump Glenn and perhaps Dre for some extra gelt down the line.
  13. Ge-off Speaks ... For the Bengals second pick, 33rd overall, Hobson has the Bengals taking edge Terrell Lewis from Alabama. Here’s what he says: *** "High Ceiling + Injuries = Bengal For Sure. Maybe third or fourth round but...
  14. How about bring back the LB from Kansas drafted in the second round behind Anthony Munoz who went in the first (duh)? Kirby Criswell From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigationJump to search Kirby Lynn Criswell (born August 31, 1957) is a former linebacker for the St. Louis Cardinals in the NFL and a 2nd round draft pick in the 1980 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals.. Football career[edit] Criswell was born and raised in Grinnell, Iowa where he attended Grinnell High School. A standout in high school, Criswell was recruited to play collegiate football by several universities. He elected to play for the University of Kansas. The Jayhawks did not produce any strong teams during his time with them, but Criswell was noticed due to his passionate style of play. He was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the second round of the 1980 NFL draft.[1] Criswell, who sported a Mohawk hairstyle during training camp,[2] was waived by the Bengals before the start of 1980 football season but then signed by Green Bay.[3] Green Bay cut Criswell two days later.[4] Less than a month after his signing, Criswell was arrested on federal drug charges.[8] On June 2, 1982, Criswell was found guilty by a federal jury of possessing marijuana and conspiring to manufacture and distribute methamphetamine.[9] He was subsequently sentenced to five years in prison.[10] After his sentencing, Criswell said a recently published Sports Illustrated article on Don Reese may have hurt his cause.[11] Criswell never played in the NFL again. (per Trumpy) Criswell was infamous for showing up to practice in Wilmington tripping on LSD. Once was missing at dinner and a search party found him in the woods around the practice field grooving on the drug enchanted forest. Mike Brown refused to sign Dan Marino because of reports that he used marijuana in college but was OK with Criswell because he had never heard of LSD. Criswell has the distinction of being the highest drafted rookie to be cut in training camp. He is on my All Bengals Team.
  15. 2020 NFL Draft Rankings: Linebackers Isaiah Simmons, Clemson (rJR, 6'4", 225 pounds) ... Kenneth Murray, Oklahoma (JR, 6'2", 234 pounds) ... Patrick Queen, LSU (JR, 6'1", 227 pounds) ... Zack Baun, Wisconsin (rSR, 6'3", 240 pounds) ... Troy Dye, Oregon (SR, 6'4", 226 pounds) ... Malik Harrison, Ohio State (SR, 6'3", 246 pounds) For Round Two, if Murray or Queen slide, it would be a toss up for be between the two. Both may go in Round One is someone really likes Queen. Not impossible. The one guy in the draft who really fascinates me is S/LB hybrid Kyler Dugger from Whattsamatta U. Would the Bengals reach for him in Round 2? Esp if they trade down a bit? Bengals are (in)famous for reaching. Dunno... Just PLEASE no wide receiver.
  16. Sour Apples Harry, here, but I'm still wait-and-see skeptical about Jonah. So hope I'm wrong, as usual.
  17. I seriously hope the Bengals don't let Troy Blackburn do anything for the organization other than being the coffee gopher. But if Troy did the negotiations, that explains a lot. Dre probably unleashed the one eye trouser snake and it was luv at first site for Troy.
  18. Where was this taken? Anyway, a lot of people are going to be screwed if they Bengals draft him and do not assign him, as the Beatles said, "Number 9 Number 9 Number 9".
  19. Good News: He has not hurt himself (yet) Bad News: Has not caught a ball yet even though all the throws have hit him in the hands.
