  1. This offensive line is abysmal and the team is playing listlessly this season. They all need to wake up. It’s terrible.
  2. I’m pretty sure only Rudi Johnson. Maybe Nugent but I don’t remember if it was in the same year or afterwards for him. I’d like to see them get something done with Bates long term as long as he’s not expecting something ungodly.
  3. Is there a Jesse Bates extension coming?!? His Twitter seems to say watch for something.
  4. When Vernon Hargreaves ran onto the field, I shouted out...WHO THE FUCK IS THAT?!? This idiot plays four games for the team and runs out like he's been here his whole life. I honestly didn't even know who it was. What a moron. That goes down as one of the stupidest moves ever. That was the Sewer Brewer right there.
  5. I agree with Spicoli. Go out and spend heavy and hard in free agency on the offensive line. No fucking around. Then, take BPA in an area of need at #31. For the first time in a really long time, I think free agency is more important than the draft this year.
  6. The offensive line was not good enough to be a champion. We all knew it. Some people pretended like it wasn’t a thing. Without Joe Burrow, this team is picking in the Top 10 again. I beg the head office to realize they’ve got a legitimate chance at having a top tier team and fix this fucking problem. Our QB was sacked 19 times in 3 games. This cannot happen again.
  7. I like Snoop and Eminem but I’m not a massive fan of most of the artists. Despite that I think the halftime show was terrific. I’d rank Prince, Michael Jackson and U2 higher but this one was definitely up there.
  8. Glad to see you here, Birk. Your email was an awesome surprise. TheZerawKid (our old moderator) was here for awhile but, it doesn't appear he's posted in almost a year. DudleyDawson is also here from those days as is Clapton. BengalFanInNJ who I've been posting with forever was also here but I don't see him much. Oddly enough, I was just telling someone the story about your chili recipe you shared with the board way back when. It was amazing but, was also known to cause a level of abdominal release in some. I recall you feeding it to UKTiger before his flight back home. The story about him coming to the US for a game (which I believe was the same time) was also a classic.
  9. I remember him as the guy that used to like to grab other guys balls when he played. Now he's calling a legit player hot garbage. Interesting.
  10. I'd think this is a bad sign for Mathieu. I never want to cheer an injury but, if Mathieu missed the game it wouldn't be a bad thing for the Bengals.
  11. How is saying every member of our offensive line is upgradeable an over reaction? Because you don't agree? That doesn't stop it from being true. It's not just the last game. The Bengals have allowed 103 sacks over the past two seasons. ONE HUNDRED AND THREE! Is that what you want for potentially the best QB to ever play in Cincinnati who is surrounded by offensive weapons? Stop it. Jonah Williams is average at best. Quinton Spain (who is a free agent) is above average but, not great by any stretch. Trey Hopkins is below average. The RG has been occupied by wildly below average players all season and they essentially have no right tackle. Is it conceivable to believe that they will switch all five players out next season? Certainly not but it doesn't mean that they aren't all easily upgraded and no option should go unconsidered. You keep saying "I hope Jackson Carman can be good". Well, wish in one hand and shit in the other and see what fills up first. I don't want them to wish and hope. The Bengals went with the "let's wish/hope this offensive line can be serviceable enough to protect our most important asset" this year. The Bengals are in the AFCC in spite of the offensive line, not because of it and we are lucky Burrow is still standing.
  12. The biggest key to the game this weekend is putting the ball in the endzone. 4 FGs isn't going to beat the Chiefs. TDs aplenty will be required.
  13. Quinton Spain did the same thing after getting beat like a drum all day. Shut the fuck up.
  14. GOOD Win-The Bengals win two playoff games and are in the Final Four! Awesome!! Joseph Lee Burrow-Statistically not the greatest game but, the guy is who we've needed all these years. Ja'Marr Chase-Overall solid game but that final catch was clutch. 5 of 6 for 109 yards. Guy is insane good. CJ Uzomah-Some timely catches. 7 of 8 for 71 yards. Tee Higgins-7 catches for 96 yards. We have two #1 WRs in my opinion. Joe Mixon-Did enough in the run game and sprang a TD scamper in a crucial moment. His pass blocking was also sound. Evan McPherson-4/4 and the game winning FG. Kid is all kinds of cool. Logan Wilson-A legit NFL LB. Made some big tackles and of course, had the game clinching INT. Mike Hilton-I keep saying it...one of the most unheralded free agent signings in a long time. DJ Reader-5 solo tackles, 2 tackles for a loss and just a load in the middle. So underrated. Jessie Bates-Set the tone with a good read and INT to start the game along with 4 solo tackles. Lou Anarumo-Dude...we beat this poor fucker up and he's doing a stellar job. In our faces. Zac Taylor-Hats off to you, young man. You've guided your team to the AFCC. Least penalized team in the NFL. Eli Apple-Needs to shut up but, he's a must resign. #2 CB and a career turn around. Made the key play on defense when it mattered. BAD Samaje Perine-No effort on that catch. Below average backup RB. The Bengals should be upgrading here in the offseason. Chidobe Awuzie-First appearance here for me but, tough outing. Hasn't happened much. He'll bounceback UGLY Offensive Line-This unit is dogshit. Most sacked QB in the regular season and 9 fucking sacks in the Divisional Playoff game. If you don't think every single starter is upgradeable, you aren't watching or your hopes outweigh common sense. Quinton Spain and Jonah Williams have taken over from Trey Hopkins playing the least stinky turd card. Woeful job. The head office should be ashamed that they let Joe Burrow play behind that garbage this season. Minimum of two upper tier linemen need to be grabbed in free agency and then hit the draft. Absolutely terrible.
  15. The Chiefs defense blows. Yes, their offense can be dynamic but Joe Burrow has, can and will score on Kansas City. The Bengals defense will somehow need to slow the Chiefs offense a bit but, this was the preferred matchup for me. LET'S GO!!!!!!!!
  16. Stanley Morgan is not talked about too often but, I'd like to see him back for Saturday. He's turned in to a really solid special teams player. I believe he leads the team in Special Teams tackles.
  17. CJ Uzomah is a mid-level talent at TE. They could make a fairly easy upgrade from a talent perspective. But, it's his personality and leadership that will likely see him get another contract this offseason. With so much other offensive weaponry already in place and much larger needs to focus on, I'd be happy to see them re-up him. If Joseph Lee likes him, bring him back. He's the boss now.
  18. I definitely think this is part of it but, why not put them on the practice squad and elevate them for the game? Maybe you cannot "demote" someone with a regular contract from the active roster to the practice squad so, maybe this was the only way to essentially swap them in for him. But, they activated him to cut him and move him to the practice squad. Seems strange. is an appropriate emoji!
  19. He would have already been paid the $3.1 million for this season so, he's not out anything at this point. He stays on the practice squad and can get brought up to the active roster should the Bengals need him. Not sure if practice squad players are eligible for the playoff bonuses or not but, the only only difference between the active roster and practice squad (I believe) would be this. Quinton Spain essentially spent the majority of last season moving up and down from the practice squad. Now that the practice squad players include vested veterans, moves like this are more common. Having said that, I still don't fully understand the reason for the move. Where this really affects Su'a-Filo is that it ends his contracts so, the $3.1 million on the table for next year is officially gone but...that could have been the case any way as they could have cut him in the offseason effectively accomplishing the same thing.
  20. You can't just throw the ball all the time. Burrow would have got killed. You have to mix in the running game to keep the defense off balance and set up the play action pass. I had no issue with this. Some people think you can just drop back and pass every down. That's not how it works, even when the run isn't overly effective. As the poster above suggests, we really don't know how many runs were called or checked into by Burrow.
  21. Interesting: https://www.si.com/nfl/jaguars/news/jaguars-doug-costin-among-pffs-highest-graded-rookie-defenders-entering-week-14
  22. Yes, SmellKiperJr was the big English giant. I think he has 6'7" or 6'8". Really good guy. He sent me canned Skyline chili when I'd never tried it (being Canadian) and him and his sons donated an autographed Bengals ball to a dying child I was helping. I believe he lived in Kentucky and was in the medical field. I knew his real name due to our interactions but, it's been so long I cannot recall.
