  1. Any changes to the one-helmet rule wouldn't take effect until 2021. I'm all for it, as long as it's limited to one throwback a year and MAYBE one alternate a year. I DON'T want to see any Oregons or Kentuckys out there. I like to have some clue as to what teams I'm watching when I turn the TV on. A white helmet for the Bengals, once a year, would be nice. I also wish they'd bring out the pre-stripes uniforms at least once a year. They could do the earlier stripes uniforms already and just won't do it. That, and a ring of honor, seem like no-brainers. Induct players into the ring, trot them out onto the field in the jersey they wore when they played, and wear throwback uniforms that day.
  2. Then what was with the talk of his "pulling an Eli" and refusing to sign? I thought it was said when all that shit was being slung around that he could sit a year and be drafted again. From all appearances, he is fine with coming to the team, but there are many who are not convinced there will be a season. After 45 years, I'm trained to consider the worst-case scenario when it comes to this franchise.
  3. Sorry to revive a year-old thread, but I didn't think this was worthy of a new one of its own. The Bengals didn't just win this tournament, they dominated it.
  4. If the unthinkable were to happen and the league cancelled the season before Burrow signed a contract, would he be free to just not sign at that point, and re-enter the draft again next year, since he wouldn't be playing this year, either way?
  5. You may have missed this yesterday, but apparently the Bengals are open to listening to trade offers for Dalton. That's per source, now, mind you.
  6. Interesting choice of headband colors for the guy who told Dan Patrick and Mike Florio that he will never play for Cincinnati. This is from a Nerf commercial.
  7. He's been making it clear since October that he doesn't want this, so why are they doing it? Is he going to be all-in for the team in the five or six games he's on the field in 2020? And what makes him think his brittle ass deserves a long-term contract from anyone?
  8. Sadly, reporting isn't about "reporting" anymore. It's about clicks, hits, viewers, listeners and whatever it takes to get attention, even if it means stirring up a fabricated shit storm to get people upset or amused enough to pay attention. It's not surprising that little-known "reporters" like these have to resort to such, but it's pathetic that the likes of Dan Patrick have to, as well. It's the nature of today's media beast. People can get the facts from an app on the little box they carry around in their pocket. They don't have to sit down to watch Dan Patrick on the 6:00pm SportsCenter to find out what's going on. In the fight for relevance, the people who hope to make their living in the media business often resort to drama, controversy, or click bait. That's all this is about. Dan Patrick either shamelessly does what he's been doing, or he gets ignored and loses what little relevance he still has a member of the media. The bastards spewing the Burrow nonsense are nothing more than pro wrestlers thumping their chests in the middle of the ring, trying to incite as much of the crowd as they can. Florio was a prime example of that today. That he was able to say what he said in that interview with Channel 9 (?) and hold a straight face was impressive. I'll give him that.
  9. ...and did the 8-0 start and best record in the AFC of 2015 never happen? I know the playoff game was an all-time gut punch, but damn...
  10. The 49ers coaches and players are all long gone, but many of the same fans that got so much joy out of their two Super Bowls wins against the Bengals are still fans of theirs, so screw 'em all. Stealers and Patriots are #1 and #2, but they are third.
  11. But even if it were their decision, don't you think it would have been based on the feedback he was giving them? It just seems suspicious that an injury that was diagnosed to be a few weeks, turned into months, and that the slow recovery coincided with one of the worst seasons in the history of the franchise. I'm admittedly just speculating, though.
  12. I guess he's still a good guy as a person, I don't know, but I think he quit on the team this year. Send his ass packing. Even if his injury was legitimately season-ending, what hope is there that he's going to suddenly become durable enough to play 16 games a year? Give his spot to someone who's healthy and hungry. I don't think he's either.
  13. Why were you looking at that? You people are disgusting. Oh, and here it is, if anyone is interested...or curious...or is shopping for insurance...or whatever...
  14. I'm surprised there has been no outcry over Burrow's smoking. You know, iT sEts A baD eXamPLe fOr thE cHilDreN.
  15. I am SICK to DEATH of the assholes on Twitter saying he should pull and Eli/Elway and refuse to play for the Bengals. It's as if people's memories extend no further back than the middle of the '18 season. Either that, or they've taken a look at the '19 standings and decided they know enough to post a hot take on how pathetic the Bengals are. One tweeter from Cincinnati even went so far as to say "I don't follow football, but I know the Bengals are a joke." As for the pick, I think the franchise is reaching a crossroads. Apathy is rampant among the general public and whispers of stadium upgrades or replacement have begun. We have experienced multiple years of just-better-than-average and most won't be excited or motivated by that again. The franchise needs to push all its chips to the middle of the table. Go home rich or go home broke, but break-even is no longer an option. Not for this franchise. A scenario where Burrow goes somewhere else and makes the HOF (or even "just" wins a Super Bowl) is worse than one where he comes here and busts.
