  1. Yes. Ickey almost shuffled on me. Not a great picture. Son was in front of me with Anthony Munoz.
  2. Special live in person on field half time appearance at today's game of High School Harry & Son. As part of the celebration for the 100th year of the NFL the Bengals are recognizing veteran players and long time season ticket holders. Son and I are accompanying Anthony Munoz and Ickey Woods. I'm sure with about a few hundred other people but looking forward to it.
  3. The reason he didn't get the job was because Katie wasn't sleeping with Bieneimy.
  4. The Cincinnati Bengals have activated cornerback Darqueze Dennard off of the Physically Unable to Perform list. Dennard joins the vacant 53-man roster spot left by offensive tackle Cordy Glenn, who has been suspended for Sunday’s game vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars and will not count toward the 53-man roster. A sixth-year player in 2019, Dennard had spent Games 1-6 on PUP before returning to practice on Wednesday on a roster exemption. He was recovering from offseason knee surgery, which also kept him sidelined for all of training camp and the preseason. Dennard was originally was a first-round pick of the Bengals in 2014 by way of the Michigan State Spartans. He has played in 68 career games (19 starts), and has 214 tackles, three interceptions, three sacks, 17 pass defenses, two forced fumble and a fumble recovery. This is a much-needed addition for the Bengals, who will be without starting cornerbacks Dre Kirkpatrick and William Jackson III for several weeks due to injuries. ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::; Are they desperate enough to play him? Is he ready even for spot duty? Has to be better than B.M. Webb and company.
  5. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/bengals-suspend-cordy-glenn-one-150853675.html Sports Bengals suspend Cordy Glenn for one game Three days ago, Bengals tackle Cordy Glenn was cleared to return to practice. Today, he won’t be practicing. The Bengals have announced that Glenn has been suspended one game. He won’t play on Sunday against the Jaguars. Here’s the full text of the press release: “The Bengals today suspended OT Cordy Glenn for one game for internal disciplinary reasons. Glenn, who has been placed on the Reserve/Suspended by Club list, will not count against the team’s 53-player roster while serving the suspension. The Bengals will have no further comment regarding the suspension.” On Wednesday, Glenn’s first day at practice since suffering a preseason concussion, tempers flared between Glenn and a member of the coaching staff. Previously, the Bengals had fined Glenn $200,000 for conduct detrimental to the team. The problems between Glenn and the Bengals relate to the handling of his concussion, with tension regarding whether he was truly ready to return. That tension has become something more troubling for the team, which would be wise at this point to consider fielding trade offers for Glenn.
  6. https://www.cincyjungle.com/2019/10/18/20919615/the-bengals-deserve-the-disaster-artist-known-as-jim-turner Like it or not, the Bengals’ calamitous 2019 season has been heavily influenced by their infamous offensive line coach. By John Sheeran@John__Sheeran Oct 18, 2019, 7:00am EDT Some of you will hate me for this. I’d imagine most of you already do. I frankly don’t care. Rip me a new one in the comments section. Email me your hate, I could always use a good laugh. Jim Turner is bad, and he was always bad. From the minute he was hired as the Bengals’ offensive line coach, Jim Turner was a bad. When he was suspended by Texas A&M for being sexist at a football clinic, Jim Turner was bad. When he was fired by the Miami Dolphins for partaking in and allowing “BullyGate”, which ultimately led to a three-year stretch of unemployment, Jim Turner was bad. When he failed to put together a quality line in Miami and similarly failed to develop quality players at Texas A&M when he was first with the program from 2008-2011, Jim Turner was undoubtedly, and undeniably, bad. None of this mattered for Zac Taylor and the Bengals when they hired him in February, and his reputation has worsened more than it’s been enhanced since then. He was an integral reason why Bobby Hart, one of the worst right tackles in all of football, was not only re-signed, but was also given a notable raise in the process. Signing John Miller in free agency and drafting Jonah Williams seemed to counter this inexcusable decision to some degree, but things would only get worse from there. Once offseason programs began, offensive lineman started retiring left and right. First it was Clint Boling, who was dealing with a career-threatening blood clot in his system; pretty much and open and shut case to be fair, and no blame could be bestowed upon Turner. Then the preseason rolls around and Kent Perkins decides to retire. This was when Williams had been injured for over a month and Cincinnati’s tackle depth was getting thin. Why did Perkinsleave the team? Obviously he wasn’t fully committed to hanging up the cleats because he was recently drafted by the St. Louis BattleHawks to play in the XFL. About a week later, Christian Westerman is mysteriously not playing. He decides to retire out of the blue as well. Like Perkins, Westerman later had a change of heart and returned to the team a week later. He was cut soon after that, but the suspicion only grew louder. Why did two backup lineman, on a team that had maybe three established starters along the offensive line, decide to leave the team only to return to the sport in some way shape or form? A lack of opportunity? A Need of a fresh start? A frustration with the new position coach? No reason can be fairly dismissed. In-between all of this were the signings of John Jerry and Andre Smith, both of whom have had their share of ups and downs this year. Smith coming back for the third time since his initial departure after 2015 is more of an indictment on the front office. But John Jerry? The last time he played any football was in 2017, and even then he wasn’t playing very well. Now he’s the answer to Boling’s retirement? In fairness, Jerry hasn’t been terrible after spending an entire year on his couch, but even in late June, he was far from the best option the team could’ve turned to when they needed another body. He was signed because of his familiarity with Turner and Taylor, which sounds a lot like Smith and other acquisitions the franchise has made in the past. Finally, we get to Cordy Glenn. On Wednesday, Taylor announced that Glenn had been cleared to practice for the first time since he self-reported a concussion two months prior in the middle of the preseason. In his first practice back, the mood shifted from promising to catastrophic. Glenn and an unnamed coach got into a heated argument—one that nearly turned physical—over the timing of Glenn’s return to the field. Glenn, the man who has been dealing with literal brain damage for several weeks, was being berated by his coach, whom has not been dealing with such ailments, for taking so long to come back to work. Remove the traditional tough-minded football tropes from your mind and realize how ridiculous the coach sounds in that scenario. The coach and the Bengals appear to be on the same side, as the team fined Glenn $200,000 for conduct detrimental to the team. Essentially, they believe Glenn was biding his time to return and the team felt he was able to come back long before he did. As a response, Glenn reportedly asked to be cut from the team for being pressured to come back earlier than he felt he should. We’re not pointing fingers here, but we can make an educated guess as to which coach was the one to get into it with Glenn. It wouldn’t be the first time Turner berated one of his players for standing by a personal decision he didn’t agree with The situation with Glenn has spiraled out of control and if he ever plays for the Bengals again, it’ll be an absolute miracle. At this point, no one should want Glenn to incur more brain damage for an organization that would treat him like this, whether or not they believe from their own viewpoint he was ready to play again. And all of this really starts with Taylor. When asked about his offensive line coach that he’s known for years, Taylor stood up for him once more: 49 people are talking about this When asked about Perkins and Westerman leaving the team back in August, he had a response to that as well: “Every issue has been completely separate,” Taylor said. “Every situation has been so unique. None of them I can really talk about. I can’t get into their personal matters.” Whatever. Taylor’s not going to throw his friend under the bus that easily. He’s been a defender of his shoddy character from day one. Turner’s capability as a coach, however, is something Taylor can’t prop up forever without tangible results to back it up. Turner is still not good at what he does, and the results this year continue to validate that assessment—which most people subscribed to this offseason anyways. Bobby Hart remains to be terrible, and it’s not like Turner of all coaches could fix his uninspiring technique. His decision to throw Michael Jordan back out at left guard after he proved he wasn’t ready was as awful as Jordan’s play following the decision. And most of Billy Price’s issues are still plaguing his performance as well. There’s only so much he can do for Price, Hart and the left tackles he’s working with, but what about Trey Hopkins and Miller? The center and right guard duo have been the unquestionable bright spots along the line, but still can’t seem to communicate with one another in the run game. Second level blocking has been a detriment to the offense all season long, and most of that lies on Hopkins and his guards. Why isn’t their talent being maximized on the field? Because the only thing Turner has ever proven to maximize is how incompetent of a leader and coach he really is. He’s never managed to make of his units better, he’s rarely been able to elevate anyone’s talent. But he’s always managed to be the center of controversy wherever he goes. It’s simply poetic that he’s right in the middle of the worst Bengals season in a decade.
  7. About Cordy Glenn... elsewhere in this thread someone said Lapham had suggested that he was sandbagging. Lapham is the designated leaker of information of the Brown family on the Bengals. Glenn should be forced to pay back every cent of his salary up to this point and cut. Locker room poison and ripping of the fans who expected him to add something to the team.
  8. https://bengalswire.usatoday.com/2019/10/17/nfl-trade-deadline-bengals-sellers-aj-green-tyler-eifert/?utm_source=smg&utm_medium=wasabi&utm_content=home-hero Interesting article from Bengals Wire with a few new names. Players mentioned: Tyler Eifert Carlos Dunlap Dre Kirkpatrick Billy Price A.J. Green Andy Dalton No Geno Carlos and Billy are surprises to me. I can see Billy gong elsewhere and to the Pro Bowl.
  9. What scares me is the people they draft in the first round always end up dinged up to one degree or another and never come back to reach the potential and hopes we had for them. I am, unfortunately, not expecting a lot from Noah when he comes aboard the Bengals ark.
  10. I was going to comment along these same lines. Only from the Jaguars point of view. They know they are going nowhere this year even though they are in better shape than the Bengals. But rather than stay pat and watch their players drop like flies going to IR they made a deal that will amp up their draft board next Spring. That is what I think the Bengals should do and their most tradable asset is Geno Atkins who plays in a position where we are deep, the defensive line, and deep with young players Yeah, Charlie don't surf and the Bengals don't trade but MikeandKatie are going to have to do something to get people in the seats and even more so from M&K's perspective, do something preemptive to stop at least some of the bleeding for 2020 season ticket sales. They once shocked the locals to trade up from the 5th pick to the 1st to take Ki-Jana Carter. Without the injury who knows how that would have affected the future of the team but of topic and neither here nor there. The point being Mike wanted to do something to jolt the fan base. So what I am saying is the precedent is there so I would love to see them pull the trigger. Dumpster diving for Bed Head Fred and a guy like B.M. Webb simply isn't going to do it. The team is going nowhere with Geno and I don't think he will do much for us next now that he is aging. Trading Geno for a 1st round pick, which I think he is worth, that we turn into a new O lineman or real Linebacker next year makes sense to me. Off the soap box. Getting dizzy up here and have a nose bleed.
  11. Tom Pelissero ✔@TomPelissero More injury trouble for the depleted #Bengals defense: CB William Jackson is expected to miss at least a few weeks because of a shoulder injury, per source. Dre Kirkpatrick also sidelined by a knee injury. The hits keep coming. 352 1:27 PM - Oct 15, 2019 · Fort Lauderdale, FL
  12. https://www.foxnews.com/sports/eagles-zach-brown-release-kirk-cousins-trash-talk Eagles linebacker Zac Brown released for being an asshole. Worth bring in? Has to be as good or better than what we've got and sounds like a good candidate for redeeming.
  13. Could be on the right track. If Mike Zimmer gets the ax, DC would be great place for him especially if Zac wears out his welcome fairly quickly. Or Zim is a temp until getting picked up by another team.
  14. Sports Report: Stealers lose DE Tuitt for season Pittsburgh Stealers defensive end Stephon Tuitt will undergo season-ending surgery for a pectoral tear, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported. Tuitt exited Sunday night's 24-17 victory at the Los Angeles Chargers after being injured during the first quarter and did not return. The 6-foot-6, 303-pound Tuitt entered the game tied for the team lead in sacks (3 1/2) and tackles for loss (six). In his sixth year with the Stealers, Tuitt was selected in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft out of Notre Dame. His rookie year is the only season in which he has played every game. He has started 64 of the 76 games he has played in his six seasons. Tuitt has three more seasons on his contract with the Stealers. Next year his cap hit will be $14.9 million. However, the Steeler coaching staff was not pleased with his off season conditioning. He reportedly had a considerable weight gain. According to one staff member who chooses to remain anonymous, "Stephon ended the season in great physical shape but when he returned we found we had gotten a round Tuitt." The Stealers (2-4) are tied with the Cleveland Browns for second place in the AFC North. The Stealers have a bye this week.
  15. Ain't dat da troof... I would actually bet on it. "OK, Fred, don't move until everyone else does. Then just stand there and get in the way." Another update on Bed Head Fred https://www.cincyjungle.com/2019/10/14/20914517/bengals-news-kerry-wynn-fred-johnson Kerry Wynn to IR to make room.
  16. 6'7", 300+ lbs. I wonder if he can play Tackle? That would be nice.
  17. The Cincinnati Bengals made a roster move the day after falling to 0-6, claiming rookie guard Fred Johnson, formerly of the Pittsburgh Stealers. Those Stealers cut the undrafted rookie last week and he was eligible to land on their practice squad if he cleared waivers. The Bengals had other plans. Johnson is a massive, 6’7″, 326-pound guard who spent his college days at Florida. He’s ready to compete, too, as captured by TribLive’s Chris Adamski: “I never look at the pot (half) empty; that (crap) is half full. So I got put on waivers. I could have been here playing (merely) being a backup for three, four more years, however long. So, you just understand the business. They need a quarterback, they need a running back. That stuff happens.” The Bengals need help in the trenches with John Miller hurt over the weekend at right guard. Alex Redmond played in his place, while Billy Price and Michael Jordan are still taking turns at left guard.
  18. Like Paul Brown told Bob Trumpy when the Original Trump scored his first touchdown in preseason and made an ass of himself celebrating, "Act like you've been there before". That's what Michael Xtravagaza is doing. Acting like he's been here before.
  19. OK. But I would make that trade, too. A high 2020 draft choice has more value to the team right now than Geno Atkins. Or Tyler Eifert to the Patriots.
  20. 49ers appear to be for real or, at the very least, off to a great start amazing even themselves. Playoff spot a virtual lock. Trading Geno Atkins to them for a first and hopefully more draft pick would be an excellent move for both teams. But
