  1. LMFAO AB pushed off on Newman and Newman called for the hold
  2. lol for some reason I have a hard time buying those or even going to the casino nowadays but I don't think twice before dropping the $$$ on random games that I don't care about. It actually makes days like today more exciting for me since typically a Jags/Titans game wouldn't mean shit to my life
  3. HAHAHAAHAHAHA FUCK YOU JUSTIN TUCKER HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA edit: sorry, just had to put this somewhere
  4. All I need is the Vikings to decide to score, the Cards to play like an NFL team, the AFCS teams to each score 20 points in the 2nd half, and the Bears to overcome a 21 point deficit. Seems realistic enough
  5. I'm watching because I have the over lol I've got PIN/MINN on my TV since it's local, CLE/BAL and AZ/IND on my PC screens, keeping tabs on the others via my app. I've decided to give up on caring about the Bengals until Marv is fired so I went the direction of wreckless betting on this bullshit sport
  6. I guess this should go here. I'll probably bitch about 20 more times before the game is done butttttt Anyone watching MINN/PIT? Xavier Rhodes just tugged on AB's jersey on a go route (d-holding) but got called for fucking pass interference. lol okay sure that makes sense
  7. John who? We have a dude that punched a young lady to argue over now. Ross is old news.
  8. Ross will be an afterthought once we draft Mixon. Pretty sure he'll be more polarizing than John Ross for the off field stuff alone.
  9. I know a lot of people had an issue with A.J. Green's lanky frame but he turned out to be OK. Ross is smaller but hopefully he'll beef up a bit and also not sustain any serious injuries like he did in college. I wouldn't bet on him staying off the IR, but we can hope. I'm far more concerned with his ability, or lack thereof, to beat press coverage. I hope that practicing with some good press NFL CBs on our team can help him out with that.
  10. He's still going to take his share of shots on the field. Let's just hope none of them do any severe damage. It's really all we can do at this point, but I just can't believe a lot of people are acting as if his injury history shouldn't even be brought up.
  11. ^ Ross is a smaller framed dude than some of the guys on that list. With his injury history and his build, he just seems more fragile than the average "small" WR. I'm going to be nervous when I see a big safety or LB heading toward him over the middle for the first time.
  12. Seriously though, it would just be nice to see some sort of study on players going "higher than expected" due to combine results and seeing their boom/bust ratio compared to the average kid being drafted in the top of the first round. There's a lot of subjectivity in there but it would be interesting to see some data. Top draft picks bust all the time in general, and in my opinion it's even more risky to "overdraft" a guy that wasn't in a single person's top 10 pre-combine just because he ran a fast straight line test in spandex. That's all a lot of people are saying and trying to say and it keeps getting twisted and turned into all sorts of irrelevant debates.
  13. No, I never said a single time that we need to take a consensus first rounder or I'm upset. You're just making strawman after strawman. When did we take Carlos, Geno, Vontaze, Chad, or Andy with our #9 overall pick? I care more about what I think of a guy than what the national media has to say about them, you should probably read back a couple pages and see where this debate came from before starting your bullshit. This entire post of yours is extremely illogical and doesn't follow along with anything I've been saying at all.
  14. Holy fuck, can you not read? I never said anything about us taking him or not. Just that Ross wasn't a consensus top pick. I used Garrett and Adams as examples because they were a couple guys that were considered top 10 guys pre and post combine. There are a lot of players who weren't consensus 1st rounders, Ross is one of them. You can come to terms with that or argue until you're blue in the face, but it doesn't make you right. Nobody is crying that we didn't somehow end up with Myles Garrett, he was simply used as an example of a guy that didn't have a jump in rankings by multiple outlets. Your little chart up there shows that Ross did jump due to the combine. It's funny how they try to qualify it by claiming that the places that had him lower "were not as familiar with him". Or maybe they just didn't think his tape was as good as the others. Maybe? Nah, that can't be it. JOHN ROSS FOR PRESIDENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  15. Yeah man, my entire point. Do you know what CONSENSUS means? I said he wasn't a consensus 1st rounder/top prospect. Consensus. He wasn't Myles Garrett or Jamal Adams. That's the point. Comprehend now? IMO you should be cautious of guys that jump purely due to the combine like Ross did on many big boards, rankings, and mocks. You are 100% free to disagree with that opinion but it does NOT change the fact that Ross wasn't a consensus top pick.
  16. Yeah those people on certain other boards are more reputable than Mel Kiper. Lol limited knowledge, is that really all you guys have that can't disprove what I'm saying? Confirmation bias - check Don't provide any facts of your own - check Tell me I'm limited in knowledge - check
  17. I'm not even 100% sure what Kroger is but I guess I work there since my football knowledge is so shitty that I recall John Ross not being mentioned as a 1st rounder or a top 10 pick by every single media outlet that exists. I've shown multiple, legitimate outlets that prove that John Ross wasn't a consensus 1st rounder or top prospect pre-combine. I don't need to prove any more on that front. People can refuse to believe it all they want, fuck it.
  18. He was #41 on Kiper's big board pre-combine. #14 and then #21 in Kiper's updates after. Todd McShay had him #32 on his big board pre-combine. #20 after. The fucking point that no one seems to fucking understand is that I've been saying all along to be cautious of guys that fucking jump in rankings purely due to the fucking combine. If a single human being could comprehend and debate my actual point instead of just making condescending remarks about how my football knowledge is shitty or I don't follow the draft or that I work at Kroger, that would be amazing.
  19. Naw man, I've just said over and over and over and over that he wasn't a consensus 1st rounder so I don't know why people are trying to act like he was now that the Bengals drafted him with a premium draft pick. If you want to keep putting words into my mouth and not fully understand what my argument is, that's on you brother. I'm not saying John Ross is dogshit or that no one in the universe had him ranked highly, it just wasn't a slam dunk, everybody on earth agrees kind of situation like how Solomon Thomas, Myles Garrett, Jamal Adams, etc. were both before and after the combine. Hopefully you'll choose to actually argue against what I'm saying the next time you choose to come into my "safe space" for debate.
  20. A few guys seem to have the same posting style. Instead of debating they just mention how other fans don't know anything and how people that argue with them have a shitty job. It's really weird, no one has even once assumed how good/bad my career path is on any of the other sports boards I've been a part of. On here it's happened more than once this week hahahahaha and to be honest, I'm from western Pennsylvania, I don't even know what the fuck Kroger is
  21. Why the constant personal attacks when somebody proves you wrong? All you had to say was "OK so he wasn't a consensus 1st rounder but a lot of reputable guys had him as a top 20 prospect at least." Nope, fuck that, let's talk about our superior football knowledge and assume the person I'm arguing with has a shitty job. I'm sure you're a role model for many.
  22. Okay but we're talking about him being mocked in the 1st round or not. That's literally the conversation we were having. Move them goalposts some more and Mike Brown may hire you at PBS.
  23. Bengals fan knowledge is absolutely embarrassing. I'm in agreement with you on that front, just not sure we're talking about the same people. Anyhoo, I don't know man, I didn't hear a single thing about John Ross at @9 overall until he ran real fast at the combine, and he wasn't in every single 1st round pre-combine mock. That's all I'm saying, he wasn't a "consensus" 1st rounder. Dane Brugler - didn't have him mocked in the 1st AFTER the combine Rob Rang - didn't have him mocked in the 1st AFTER the combine Pete Prisco - didn't have him mocked in the 1st AFTER the combine Pete Schrager - John Ross @30 overall Fanragsports - Not in 1st Chatsports - Not in 1st TheDraftster - Not in 1st WCBNSports - #17 overall isportsweb - #18 overall Walter - #18 overall TheMockDraftCentral - #19 overall TheGruelingTruth - Not in 1st SlantSports - Not in 1st I just took Google search results from anywhere that had a website that regularly does mock drafts and looked at what they had pre-combine. I'm sure you'll just blow them all off, but my point is just that not everyone was slotting Ross into the 1st round pre-combine. It's a flat out lie to say otherwise regardless of your continuous personal attacks and confirmation bias.
  24. Yep and I don't think anyone would argue with that. Someone was taking him in the first round for sure. I think the point a lot of us are trying to make it that you have to be cautious of some of these guys that "jump" post-combine. He wasn't a consensus 1st rounder pre-combine and he absolutely, unequivocally was NOT a consensus top 10 pick at any point, even after he ran fast in spandex. I don't understand why people are just making stuff up and pretending things were different. Can anyone show me their post on this board about how we should consider John Ross at #9 before the combine? I'd like to see that. I'm not even sure if Jason (one of his biggest supporters) was on board before that.
