  1. Boycott Both Bengals vs. Browns Games

    Here's a picture of how much I care that athletes protest peacefully: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  2. I think the issue with Tate is that he wasn't a big threat to take a kick to the house. He was typically sure handed and was always good for a couple nice 40-ish yard returns per season, but that's about the extent of it. He had 0 KR TDs in 174 tries here and 1 PR TD his first year in stripes with 179 total attempts. Not saying TDs are the only way to be a good return man as there are some quality guys in the league that don't rack up touchdowns themselves, but Tate didn't really seem to have the long returns in him and was more the "hey we're going to have OK field position most of the time" kind of guy. I wasn't the biggest fan of Tate but he definitely could have been worse. I like Erickson so we'll see where he takes us. He seems to have more big play capabilities than Tate but I don't like that he fumbled 3 times last year on punt returns even though he had 0 on kickoffs.

    "Gosh darnit I wish these rootin' tootin' colored folk would learn to protest peacefully!" *people kneel* "NOT LIKE THAT!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!"

    "Stop being offended by everything!!!" - the people who are constantly offended by everything Moving to J&D in 3, 2, 1.....
  5. Burkhead

    Good news is Hopkins has been running with the 1's, he seems to have the starting RG spot secured unless he fucks something up in the meantime. I'd be shocked to see them bring Andre back for millions to ride the pine but it looks like he could just be our new "first off the bench at any line position but center" guy.
  6. Cut/waived/signed

    Billings has been playing, he's a very interesting guy to watch. He needs coached up but looks to have insane potential. The good news is that the technique and athletic ability is there, he just needs to learn where to be and when to be there on a more regular basis. Tupou and Sims have been getting the other NT reps. I could be forgetting someone but I know I've seen both of them there this preseason. Pretty sure Sims is the "starting" NT if the season started today. Billings will see plenty of time though and should gradually transition into, at worst, an average NFL starter with huge upside.
  7. Burkhead

    Burkhead fits their offense more than he did in Cincinnati. I won't be surprised at all if he has more production in New England than he did here, but I also don't think it means the coaches are stupid and that Burkhead is some amazing back that we couldn't figure out how to use. I'm sure the coaches know what kind of player he is and didn't seem too interested in drastically altering the scheme here to get him on the field more often. But I will say that they probably shouldn't have drafted him if they didn't plan on utilizing him to his strengths, which would take some altering of the offense that they apparently didn't want to do.
  8. Cut/waived/signed

    I know he played nose here and there, but wasn't he the one that played a lot of 3 tech when Geno went down a few years ago? I actually thought he did OK in that role (from what I can remember) and could have had a decent future as a backup 3T. I'm pretty sure the Bengals have had him listed in both spots on the depth chart so that doesn't always give a clear answer there. I think the moves on the d-line (letting Peko walk, cutting Thompson) just mean that the Bengals are serious about Billings as the future NT and Glasgow as the backup 3T now.
  9. In 2014 he caught 74 passes on 119 targets, just over 950 yards with 7 TDs and 1 dropped pass all year, and that was being the 3rd receiving option behind Edelman and Gronk. The next year he missed the first 6 weeks due to a foot injury which he seemed to re-aggravate throughout the year and he didn't look like the same guy anymore for whatever reason. Could have been the injury bothering him, could have been some mental issues, it seems like it could have been a case of both. Not saying that's a good thing, but you aren't going to see many non-superstar players immune to having a mediocre season or two in their career. Brandon LaFell had that 1 rough year dealing with injuries and drops the year before we grabbed him from FA on a huge bargain, likely due to his 2015 issues. I'm just glad the team brought him in and gave him a chance because we needed a vet WR in a bad way last year. In 2016 he did everything we signed him for. He filled our WR2 role while being capable to play WR1 when A.J. went down. He was a reasonable red zone target and we absolutely needed a WR2 with both Jones and Sanu getting paid elsewhere. Why is it a bad thing that we draft young players to eventually replace a guy that will be 31 during this upcoming season? Isn't this normally what NFL teams do? We didn't have a backup plan in place for losing both MLJ and Sanu and a lot of fans bashed the team for it, but now we have a backup plan and that must mean that LaFell isn't very good? I don't know, I don't buy it myself. We aren't talking about a #1 WR here, we're talking about our WR2 who is the #3-5 target when the entire offense is healthy. I'm sure there must be bigger issues to worry about right now even if LaFell is as bad as some claim (but he's not).
  10. Oh I don't think there's any chance they're the same guy, I just find it odd that a lot of noobish super homers seem to hate LaFell so much that they all make stuff up about him and claim he's awful. They call our 4th stringers that no one has heard of "beasts" and talk about how great our owner, coaches, and players are..... except for poor Brandon LaFell hahahaha I don't get it at all
  11. There was another new dude that was around recently for a minute that would say wacky shit and had a huge hard on for saying how LaFell is the worst WR2 in the league. His posting style was similar too with the terrible grammar, uber extreme statements with nothing in between, and just generally seemed like an unintelligent part of society. Not saying he's the same guy, just seems like most n00b, less than bright Bengals fans tend to hate LaFell for some reason.

    It's not even the fact that I can't find a way to scrape $150-$300 together to save my life, I'm just not paying that much money for what's essentially a fucking shirt. I have actual expensive hobbies that I enjoy, but buying $300 shirts to appease the dick heads of the world that we've seen show up to the board recently isn't going to join my other ones.
  13. Whit and Z are All-Pro caliber, "overpay" is a term Mike Brown nuthuggers will use to defend the mistake of letting both go. It's pretty clear we should have held on to 1 of them (Whit). Not saying both, but we have plenty of cap space and Ogbuehi is a trainwreck. Brandon LaFell dropped 1 pass on 107 targets last year, get the fuuuuuuuuuuuck out of here with that trolljob.
  14. Bengals pass defense

    The Reggie Nelson trade will go down as one of the most under the radar moves an NFL team has ever made. That dude was super good, but I doubt I need to explain that to anyone here. Leon Hall was a great corner and played some elite slot CB for us for a couple of years in your time frame there. Adam Jones brought in to start as mentioned above. Dre Kirkpatrick slowly improving into an upper tier CB. George Iloka, one of my favorite Bengals, being incredibly underrated since he was drafted and had a season where he didn't allow a reception for the entire first half of the year. Oh and Terence Newman played some good ball here too. I'm sure I'm missing some others that deserve mention, but our secondary has been damn good and the numbers definitely back it up.

    Dude you're really cool and a much better fan than I am. I'm glad we got that out of the way early in your posting career.
