  1. Old list. Malone is there, too. I probably should have removed them and added the two new guys but didn't think of it.
  2. https://www.yahoo.com/news/jets-hire-ex-Stealers-great-171228716.html Ex Squeeler Whines Hard joins the N Y Zits as an assistant wide receiver coach. Speculation is he is going to work to improve their cheap shot techniques.
  3. Bengals re-sign John Jerry, place O’Shea Dugas on IR Several teams dropped veterans from their rosters this weekend with the intention of bringing them back after making other roster moves. The Bengals were one of those teams and they pulled off such a move with guard John Jerry. Jerry was released on Saturday as the team dropped to 53 players, but he’s already back on the roster. The Bengals announced Jerry’s return along with tackle O'Shea Dugas‘s trip to injured reserve. Dugas signed with the team as an undrafted free agent and waiting until after cutdown day to put him on injured reserve allows the team to bring him back later in the year if so desired. Jerry started 56 games for the Giants from 2014-2017, but was out of the league after being released last September. He joins Andre Smith and Billy Price as reserve linemen in Cincinnati.
  4. HA! The Seagulps are stating the season with a classic trap game. O'Shea Duga for Hall of Fame!
  5. Wot? Wearing those goofy ass white things in London? International game and we look like the Cincinnati Marcel Marceau rather than the BENGALS? Fuck that twice.
  6. The Bengals bolster their offensive line depth with an addition to the practice squad. By NathanBeighle Sep 1, 2019, 2:35pm EDT The Cincinnati Bengals are signing New York Jets offensive lineman Wyatt Miller. This report was first surfaced by Connor Hughes, a Jets’ columnist for the Athletic. 43 people are talking about this This doesn’t come as a shock. With a few players having retired and their first-round draft pick out indefinitely, the Bengals needed help on the line. That said, Miller is help, but he won’t be much help. Unlike many teams filling their holes via trade, the Bengals seem content with just rolling with what they have and maintaining relatively quiet. As for Miller, he’s a 6-foot-4, 23-year old undrafted rookie out of Central Florida. He was initially a three-star recruit and spent four seasons at UCF, helping the university shock the world. Miller played in 95 snaps throughout four preseason games. Let’s just say he was not impressive in his first NFL look. Per Pro Football Focus (premium content), Miller, in the two games which he saw over 20 snaps, was rated under a 60 overall in both outings. That said, let’s hope he can show something better as he’s getting another chance to keep his career going with the Bengals. ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Color me unimpressed. Stuff like this and O'Shay Duga on the 53 (for the moment) are not doing much for my confidence in the 2019 Bengals. They had better pick up the OT from Cleveland even if they have to pay a few bucks or trade a D lineman for an OT or quality Linebacker. Long time until Sunday but I do not like going to war with the troops we have.
  7. yep. I didn't see they were released for Larry and Curley (still looking for Moe) until after I posted. The Cleveland OLT sounds intriguing. Has to be better than O'Shea Duga. If we get him, how much of his salary are we responsible for? How much of Malik Jefferson's salary are we responsible for?
  8. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/cody-core-eric-smith-join-180914919.html Cody Core to the Giants
  9. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/browns-release-greg-robinson-reportedly-205618718.html Browns waive OLT Greg Robinson Go git 'em?? Browns release Greg Robinson, reportedly plan to bring him back A surprising name popped up on the NFL’s transaction wire on Sunday. The Browns released Greg Robinson a week before he was expected to start at left tackle against the Titans in the first game of the 2019 season. According to multiple reports, however, the team plans to re-sign him in time to play in Week One. Robinson moved into the starting lineup for the second half of the season and re-signed with the Browns in February. That contract called for a $5.5 million salary and Robinson had a cap number of $7 million.
  10. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/browns-claim-malik-jefferson-khadarel-175934730.html Browns claim Malik Jefferson. This is going to be the cut that haunts us.
  11. Be on the inactive roster every week freeing it up for guys like Nickerson and ...some other dupe. Dumb moves. Unless they are going to try to unload Malone for a 6th round draft pick.
  12. Cincy Jungle agrees with you Dakota Allen: Another now former Ram, Allen was Los Angeles’ seventh-round pick this past April and was a top-10 graded linebacker by PFF for rookies with at least 100 snaps logged this preseason (75.4). Allen was a surprise cut, but can now help the Bengals in a big way. ANYBODY > Hardly Nickerson, please
  13. Only five linebackers and one is Nickerson? That's going to change via waiver wire or trade. All those D linemen ... some trade bait there. I'm basically OK with it. Thought Jefferson would stay over Nickerson for special teams and all the cap money at risk. Is Redmon still on the team because they can't waive him while suspended?
  14. Good. Well, not on a personal level for him or anyone else waived but the next week is going to be fun to watch with them scouring waiver wires and maybe even making the rare trade for offensive linemen. Making room for Trent Williams? Would love it but seriously doubt that it happens and if so, who would we give up?
  15. I think Billy's foot is more injured than they want to let on. And/or they are taking measures to makes sure it does not get worse. I simply hope it does not affect his career down the road.
  16. Speculation, speculation, speculation ... but that's what this board is all about. yes, I am a Christian Westerman fan. How about the high road? The conversation was something like, "Chris, we're going to cut you early so you will have a good chance of being picked up elsewhere. But, if you're not picked up, you're the first guy back when one of the fools we kept steps on their dick." Which should take long and assuming their isn't some dumpster dive with po-ten-shal they want to pick up until he goes on season ending IR and a full year paycheck.
  17. 13 Michael Johnson ends his NFL career, but he is moving on to bigger and better things. By PatrickJudis@PatrickJudis Aug 29, 2019, 4:25pm EDT After 10 years in the NFL, Michael Johnson has officially decided to retire from the NFL. Johnson made the announcement at the grand opening of the Best Buy Tenn Tech Center, which his foundation MJ 93-90 helped fund, in Selma, Alabama. Johnson played all but one season with the Cincinnati Bengals. He was drafted in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He compiled 44.5 sacks over his career. He acknowledged though that he knew it was time. “I want to spend time growing as a man, as a husband and as a father,” Johnson told the Selma Times Journal. “I’m excited about entering the next phase of my life. I have a great future with Amway and am waiting to hear back from someone in Ghana who is forwarding a big sum of money to my bank account whose number I sent him.” Johnson played last season on a one-year contract after the Bengals cut him prior to the final 53-man roster cut down only to re-sign him afterwards. The Bengals hired Zac Taylor this offseason and the new coaching staff opted to go forward with their young talent like Sam Hubbard and Carl Lawson at defensive end. The team also acquired Kerry Wynn during the offseason who had prior experience with new defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo on the Giants. Johnson’s professional career ending is only the beginning of Johnson being able to completely focus on his foundation that is focused on giving back. Johnson had previously held several events in the Cincinnati area to help create a relationship with young people and police. Now that he is retired you can expect Johnson to have more time to be hands on with his foundation. Johnson will forever be remembered for being a great veteran presence and one of the mainstays on the opposite side of Carlos Dunlap. He did some great things on the field for Cincinnati, but offhand, I can't think of any.
  18. We are, somehow, amazingly strong and deep on DL positions. Can't play 'em all but some excellent trade bait here with Brown, Glasgow, Billings, Willis. Would love to trade one of them for a good OT or LB.
  19. He sprained his wrist cleaning out his locker. Sad, really. I had high hopes for this guy.
  20. When is the first round of cuts due? Seems like we are carrying a lot of dead wood.
  21. I was thinking the same thing. I'm not projecting when he will be back but I pretty much consider this season to be a wash. I definitely do want to see him sign an extension and would love to see him retire a Bengal some day. I would not be shocked to see Ross on some sort of IR, too, just to open up a roster space. One of the roster spaces will go to a dumpster dive waived OT cast off from some other team. Would not mind seeing Jonah on the 53 man roster and IRed to maybe get him some playing time at the end of the season when Glenn is injured and Bobby Hart plays up to his previous level. An injured Jonah can jump offsides as well as a healthy Hart. While I'm on a roll... Trade Gio. Package him with something and go after Trent Williams or another decent OT. Gio isn't going to be here next year, anyway, and the two youngercheaper RBs look like they can step in and step up.
  22. Fountain Square and my favorite, 580 Building on Walnut are both excellent. Have parked there for years. Set fee of $15 or $10 per game. Walk to the stadium not bad especially if you go straight down Walnut into The Banks. A LOT less traffic on the way home. For me, I can pull out of 580 on Walnut and stay in the same lane all the way home to Milford. Or detour over the 471 bridge to Belterra and 275 home. Actually quicker if I skip Belterra. Yeah, get there early. I usually go in early to avoid the hassle of the security checks with a lot of people and hang out until game time. FANTASTIC babe watching.
  23. You made a couple comments in another thread about the Hopkins move that I liked. I wonder if this is to light a fire under Billy Price (who I really like) or he is more hurt than they are letting on. I would not be surprised. I want to hear who is starting at linebacker. Pratt over ... ?? Hope so.
