John Ross

Recommended Posts

WTF is going on with John Ross and the Bengals? John Ross said publicly that he never tweaked his knee in practice and that we was good to go. Also told him this week that it was a wait and see If he'll play. This is some fucked up shit.

this is starting to feel like a weird "fuck you"... "NO FUCK YOU".. relationship somewhere in the staff/front office.

If this is front office / coaching contrived, it's the nail in the coffin as far as I am concerned.

 

Weird, made up, spiteful shit, even if intended to "disguise gameplan" has got to be a dismiss-able offense.

 

It's hard enough being a Bengal fan right now then to have to sift through horseshit like this. It reeks of Marvin. I swear the guy has lost his mind.

“It’s just soreness,” Ross said. “But it’s getting better. That’s the most important part.”

 

I'm curious where the report came from?

 

Yeah I'm not seeing "made-up injury" either.  Where did he say he could've played?

I agree.  Draft healthy, productive players in college and let them get hurt here. *coughki-janacartercough*

Cincinnati Bengals first-round pick John Ross said the knee issue that kept him out of Sunday’s game at Green Bay is a lingering effect from the injury he suffered in the preseason finale at Indianapolis and that there’s no structural damage.

So basically he IS hurt (slightly) and the Bengals kept him out of the last game as a precautionary measure and there's nothing to see here.

John Ross did not say the Bengals "made up an injury". Someone else "made up a headline".

So, I just looked at two threads, both of them unsourced and based on nothing. C'mon people...

They were just trying to save you the embarrassment of going back out on the field and showing you don't belong in the League, son.

This is more of a Mike Brown move than Marvin Lewis. They did the same thing with AJ McCarron. It's similar to what happens in baseball with young prospects that they wait until the middle of the season to bring up from the minors so they don't get credited with a full season.

 

Not saying I agree but it's part of Mike's master plan.

Who in the hell is James Rapien, and why does a tweet from the Outer Limits carry so much weight? 

 

He works as a producer at 1530. He also does a daily podcast called Locked on Bengals

He's the next Mo Egger, I like him, he's kind of a Sarcastic nerd, but at least he's not Lance Mcallister dorky.

Maybe we should stop drafting hurt players. 

OR, maybe we shouldn't judge a draft pick before he has even finished his rookie season.

This is a splendid IDEA.

We are going to miss out on a lot of great talent.

 

Half of the players taken in the top 10 of the draft missed more games with injury last year than Ross (Myles Garrett, Leonard Fournette, Mike Wiliams, Christian McCafferty)
