Are you wanting to tank right now for picks?

If you are going to tank for two years, I want Trevor Lawrence instead.

I think Fields has more overall talent. I also think he'll end up with a higher draft grade from scouts when it's all said and done.

He's playing in the perfect developmental system for today's NFL, IMO......scary to think about how good he'll become after another full season under Day and Co..

Yes, the Bengals should tank. That would take the form of playing Finley instead of Dalton, and giving the young players more snaps to see what we have.  The problem is that while the Dolphins have a plan and a future, the Bengals dont. At least until Mike Brown is several years in the grave. Waste and wishful thinking are the Bengals way. We sign coaches who don't belong in the NFL to coach up players who don't belong either. Bobby Hart got cut from the Giants terrible O-line and we give him a big contract instead of a minimum salary deal with a chance to make the roster. 

 

If the team eschews free agent signings for impact players and relies chiefly on the draft, then drafts poorly, the results will be poor. We've used 3 first round picks and a 2nd rounder on O-linemen in the last 5 years. None started at the position drafted for us yesterday. Additionally dropping from 12 to 21 last year valued Cordy Glenn at an early 2nd round pick. He also didn't start.

FWIW, a lot of draft pages have Tau and Burrows as 1-2 and some have Burrows at 1. I have never seen Burrows play so no comment on him from me. 

BTW, his name is Burrow.  :smile: Learn it, he's our next QB.

 

 

 

Maybe.  :lol:

I am a huge LSU fan.  Tua is better.

Well we are just prognosticating so ....

The difference in recruiting grade between them was minuscule.  They were both at a QB camp, with several others.  Fields was the MVP of the camp.  Lawrence might be a slightly better passer (right now, Fields is improving every week) but Fields is the better overall athlete.  I would be happy with either, but I get the feeling we will draft our QB this April rather than next.

I think we're going to have a top 5 pick whether us fans are rooting for it or not.

 

I'm all for a top QB, Chase Young or a stud O-lineman

Hopefully one of the elite players will already be injured for a year so we can draft him

Who is your second QB in the draft?

Ohh that is a good question.  I really fear a guy who is having his best and only great year like Joe B.

Certainly not comparing talents, but one recalls a certain QB from Oregon a long time ago...who had one monster year, and then went Top-5. 

 

All of of these crapshoot messiahs have "it" until they don't have "it".

And yet we may pick another Duck lol. At least Hebert has a much better track record.

I'm not a fan of Herbert.  To be so "great" or have so much potential, he just seems to inconsistent against good competition.    That doesn't mean he won't be great in the NFL, but I have my questions about him...I'd rather have JB if it were between the two.

Assuming Miller isn't a bust, we are set at LT 

 

 

 

That's a big assumption for a rookie that's still on the PUP list.  Even if he turns into a 10-year starter we can't be one turf toe away from the likes of Andre Smith.

Honestly I feel bad for any of these guys if they get drafted by the Bengals.

But Miami or Las Vegas...that's OK? 

South Beach or the strip/LA a few hours away vs Cincinnati?  The few years of media coverage alone is worth going to Vegas.

Dalton is done. He made so many terrible passes it reminded me of Driskel last year. 

Driskel?  Naw naw... More like Gus Frerotte

I believe Tua is much better..

Yeah, I think he's the real deal. To step on the field in the national championship game, as a freshman, and win it like he did says a lot. He's been pretty dominant since.
