Projecting the Bengals' 53-man roster

Recommended Posts

I was talking about them going after a player under contract with another team via trade. Not players acquired in the draft from teams agressively pursuing Bengals players.

I know.   The topic has the brain rollin thinking about trades that's all.

And it was a good point that they have done a good job benefiting from those transactions.

I am fickle and very predisposed to the "recency" effect - meaning I place too much emphasis on what I witnessed recently, versus whole body of work.  I don't think I'm alone that way.

Tate was open repeatedly last night even though AJ missed him half the time.  He's in.

Watson sure came back to earth quickly.  Now I think he'll make it to the PS without getting stolen.

Hunt is still an enigma.  How can 6'8 dude bullrush his way into the backfield so consistently and still, despite the wingspan of a condor, miss the freak'in tackle?  Doesn't he make you want to cry?  Or scream?

Carter is in.  Just as good as our other back-up linebackers and has a special skill off the edge.

Where was Tate when we really needed him last year? Was he getting open? Fuck what he does against CBs that won't make the other squad's team. He wasn't "repeatedly" open for AJ to miss anyways. He missed him on one good throw down the sideline. At least he didn't throw a fuckin pick like....uh....other QBs do under pressure. Tate was open about as much as he always is in the final pre-season games. We've seen him do this shit before. We've seen him be a complete and utter nonfactor when it comes to actually receiving. Like....what?

Hunt bullrushes against inferior, smaller competition. He also tends to get lucky when he's simply forgotten by shitty untalented OTs, like the sack he could have had that he completely whiffed on. Like....I feel like I'm the only one actually watching this shit sometimes. He is not a football player. He is a big ass man who has absolutely zero pop when he sticks someone. Its like he doesn't want to hit them. Like he thinks his size is good enough.

You are a man with strong opinions.  We'll see shortly whether the coaches agree with your evaluations.  I agree with your frustration with Tate - we sure needed him in the playoffs and he was MIA.  Hunt, however, CAN push first stringers too and his size (and measurables) shouldn't make that a surprise.  His problem is arm tackling instead of crushing people.  

He's big and strong enough to play some DT in a pinch which increases his usefulness.  I really like the guy, but I still think he's our best trade bait.  MJ's injury will influence his retention on the roster.  DeShawn Williams is now our most-likely-to-be-stolen waiver candidate who may not make it to the PS.

Silly rabbits. Mike Brown doesn't trade. 

Name the last significant player the Bengals traded for.

Deltha O'neal

Reggie Nelson

Fitzpatrick honestly deserves to be mentioned. He may not have been great but he helped a lot as a backup.

Brian Leonard too.

James Brooks took us to the Super Bowl.  Traded Pete Johnson for him.

That was a Paul Brown move though not Mike and company.

Great trade though.

Someone mentioned wanting to trade a CB for Sio Moore to the Raiders earlier.  Can't 

remember if it was this thread or another one.  Raiders just traded Moore to the Colts

for an undisclosed draft pick!!  :(  Wish the Bengals would have got in on that!!

That was me.  I read it was a 6th round pick. I would have done that in a heartbeat.  

A 5th easily. This team should be more proactive. Going to war with what we have though. I ain't upset. Next Sunday needs to get here. WHO DEY!
