  1. I mean how do you bring him back if he goes 0-16? Which is looking very possible. Even if he goes 1-15 or 2-14 how do you bring that back? I don't buy into the whole "he's a new coach and has to evaluate his players." He had all summer to watch film. He knew exactly what he had on this team coming in. Now maybe he tried to make player personnel changes and was denied from above. If that's the case then ok. But don't tell me he didn't know what he had. That over the off-season he didn't watch film of the current players and study what was already here.
  2. I wonder if that is why they didn't go for it there? Lol. Yeah man Louisville is right down the road. Ravens jerseys everywhere around here now. I think every Ravens game has been aired here this year. We usually only get colts Titans or Bengals. But with Lamar there it's been all ravens this season here on the tube. Bengals missed out on a massive scale. Probably the doom of the franchise.
  3. I was almost there but I'm actually doing good in fantasy this year so yeah I'm in it deep as ever. A part of my football soul died that January night.
  4. The Bengals personally handed this dude to Baltimore. 1st Bengals game to air here in Louisville all season other than the Monday nighter. Bengals missed a gigantic ship with this kid. Would've brought in way more fans etc etc. I don't know if I'll ever be able to forgive them for the biggest miss in franchise history. They just straight handed the dude to a in division team. We'll never get another divisional championship.
  5. These are in no particular order. 1. Bridgewater Again like Ive said many times. Drafting Lamar Jackson would've expanded the fan base more into Louisville. Something this franchise is probably in desperate need of. People of Louisville loved Lamar. Bridgewater also offers similar opportunity as he is still adored by the community and regularly makes appearances around town. 2. Bortles. I don't think it's a far reach to say Bortles could be successful in ZTs offense. 3. Winston. Crab legs in tiger stripes? Could be very interesting. 4. Mariota. 5. Prescott. A great fit in my opinion. Probably way too expensive at the moment considering all the needs elsewhere. 6. Rivers. Would Rivers play for another team or retire? I can't see him living in Cincy for half of the year away from his family and having a successful season. Tannehill. Dalton sq2 Brady. If Brady doesn't retire I see him landing in Tennessee. Foles. Yeah no thanks. Who else am I missing?
  6. Lol were 0-8. Gotta have some fun somehow. I'll admit that Dalton was the better athlete but McScooter had a certain ability. An ability to drive the field in a playoff game. So he definitely gets the nod on that one. Cheers to Finley doing something. He only needs 2 fgs in the first 50 minutes of game play to accomplish a 100% improvement over the last outing against Baltimore. If Finley stinks up the joint hopefully we'll get to see the 6'7 kid. That would've been my starter from the get go.
  7. Don't forget I was right on McScooter. So I'm 1 for 2. But yes Finley will be a upgrade from Andy. I'm pretty certain. Better feet, better accuracy, better athlete much smarter.
  8. Higer chance that at that time you'll have completely forgotten about Dalton for a few minutes.
  9. I believe Finley will do fairly decent this Sunday against Baltimore. Fairly decent considering it's his first NFL start and against a top defense. I think he will blow out Dalton's prior performance against the same team. Where Dalton was only able to muster up 3 points worth of offense plus a garbage time TD at the end where the defense just gave it to him to avoid have to tackle anyone. I believe the rest of the team will also look and play better. From the O-line to the defense. Think this is our first exciting moment since the opening kicking off week2? Since then it's been all clown show on offense.
  10. Why so much exaggeration? No one said dude is the greatest 4th round pick ever. We just want see someone else whoever that is. Someone that could possibly be a spark. It's not the end of the world yo.
  11. Naw man I'm just a die hard Bengals fan who is sick and tired of watching Andy fuckin Dalton for the last 9 years. Gawd dam why is that so hard to grasp your mind around? You want to keep seeing the same exact shit for another 9 years?????
  12. This makes no sense. Less batted balls and bad throws but won't do much better? Without those mistakes we see week in and week out the play should be much better. Dalton's biggest weakness throwing balls right to defensive linemen. Only QB with multiple pick 6s to linemen.
  13. Man y'all drive me crazy. Dude took us down the field and put us in the lead late in the game which should've sealed the victory. Something Dalton has failed to do or even come close to doing in 4 tries and 8 years!!! Hello! What more did you people want from McScoot? Gawd bless no pleasing some folks. If Dalton was in that game on that drive he would've crapped his pants like he has historically 100% of the time in any big game big situation. No doubting that outcome with ol Red Rider in there. Same outcome for a decade .
  14. Huh. You mean guys I have hope in always crash and burn? Please note McScooter never crashed and burned. He left after he handed us our 1st playoff victory in almost 2 decades which we immediately shit away and gave right back to Pittsburgh before the victory was official. Yes Driskel looked awful last year. So I'm 1 for 2? Long history ay? Not like I was here 15 years ago beating drums for Gus Freotte or akili Smith or Scott Mitchell or Jordan Palmer.
  15. Dalton didn't break 3k yards once at TCU. One could argue against lesser competition. I'm not saying Finley's college stats make him a superior QB to Dalton. Just responding to your narrow minded comment.
  16. First off Finley. This guy played high school basketball too. Scored 37 points in one game not missing a single shot. Basketball skills transfer great to football. Simple basketball drills are great ways to measure a football players or anyone's ability. One thing for instance. I always noticed the most "clumsy" or mistake prone guys on my football teams were also the same guys who couldn't run while dribling a basketball to save their life. So Finley being a solid b-ball player tells us he could possibly have some extra skills that a football only guy might not have. He started out at Bosie State. I don't care who ya are or what ya say but just to make Bosie State's roster as a QB you got to be at least a pretty decent QB. After some injuries he transfered to NC State. Started every game for 3 years. 5th player in ACC history with 3k passing yards for 3 straight years. So he has history playing against top talent and doing well. In my opinion the ACC is the second best conference behind the SEC. So he has played against great teams. This tells us he could possibly be one of these young guys that come out playing well right away. D.Jones anyone? All of this along with a very good preseason showing tell me the guy is at least worth one or two rolls of the dice on a 0-8 team. Just to see what happens. Kinda burns me up the way Dalton was so upset. Kinda shows how he was just handed our starting QB position for the last decade. A very small minority of us could see this and we begged year after year for them to bring in competition. Now look competition is finally here and dude shocked almost to tears. Yeah you put in all that extra work but it hasn't shown. If really all about the team winning like you said you would be more than happy to give someone else a shot. Just to see if they can get something going. Because so far nothing has gone anywhere with this offense. Your 1st year coach's job could be on the line because the offense has been so bad. After y'all hyped us up all preseason about how hunky dory everything was going to be.
  17. So if AJ Green comes back and this Finley kid does well everyone gonna say it's because he has Green. Smh Our first measuring stick. Outside of the garbage time at the end, through 3 3/4 quarters of play Dalton put up 3 points on Baltimore. My guess is that Finley will at least double that. I don't understand why so many hating on the kid before he takes his first regular season snap. He looked great preseason. If he does suck balls we can still kick the tires on Dolegala too who also looked good preseason. At least all of this makes the 2nd half of the season worth following. Honestly I had already checked out but I'll tune in now. Really enjoy watching the young qbs get a chance to make that NFL dream a reality.
  18. Is this true? The Bears made a offer for Dalton? Boycott the team until they play someone else at QB. I agree this team sucking ass so bad isn't all Andy's fault. However many many fans and myself are just sick and tired of watching this dude. Its been a decade. We're over it. Some new blood or we don't watch. If it is true what a horrible management move by the Bengals to add to the list of horrible moves. Like helping the Ravens get Lamar Jackson....Idiots!!!!!!!
  19. I believed in Dalton too until that wildcard game in Indy. Can't even watch anymore because I'm so sick of seeing Dalton. No matter how good he does or doesn't, 9 years is just too dam long. It's no fun at all watching Dalton under center for this team. If we're only gonna get 3 - 9 points a game might as well put bozo the clown back there or someone who is slightly entertaining to watch. Fuck this shit. Dalton so lame so boring. I'd rather watch Nascar or golf!!!
