It sounds like JJ Watt may be leaving

Hard to blame him.  Did he do it right and throw his pads up into the stands after the last game?

I doubt we would go after him, but I'd love to have him here, but also suspect he wants to go where he can win right now. We're not there yet.

JJ Watt wanting out is the equivalent of when CP wanted out here - franchise player at the time frustrated with ownership. 


What is amazing is how far the Texans fell in 1 year. Total collapse



I think he is a FA isn't he?

He'd have to take a LOT less. I don't see how it's even remotely possible unless Big Ben gets cut or takes a big paycut.

They were questioning if JuJu would be back next season due to cap issues. 


If I were the Squealers I would make a play for Watson and cut/retire Rapistberger.

Can Eric Bienemy even interview for jobs yet since KC is still in the playoffs? I thought coaches couldn't interview until their season was over, with the exception of Super Bowl week?


He's already done at least one interview (Falcons)via Zoom.

From the Athletic:


Protecting Joe Burrow tops new Bengals O-line coach Frank Pollack’s priorities:


On the day Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow made his first visit to Paul Brown Stadium since undergoing surgery in California to repair a torn ACL and MCL, the man tasked with better shielding the face, arm and legs of the franchise spoke about his own return to Cincinnati.


Offensive line coach Frank Pollack, who is rejoining the Bengals staff after a two-year stint with the Jets, is adding the title of run game coordinator to his nameplate for the first time in his 15 NFL seasons, but he made it clear where protecting Burrow ranks in his hierarchy of responsibilities.

“That’s Line 1 in every O-line room on all 32 teams,” Pollack said. “You’ve got to protect your quarterback. That’s what everyone is trying to always constantly get better at. We’ve got a good, young quarterback. We’ve got to do everything we can to protect him. That’s Line 1.”

And Pollack was Option 1 from the moment the Bengals began their search following a mutual parting of ways with Jim Turner, who was Zac Taylor’s choice to replace Pollack when he became head coach in February 2019.

Taylor was so committed to Turner that there weren’t even any conversations between Taylor and Pollack two years ago.

And there obviously were no hard feelings about that when Pollack came to Cincinnati on Thursday to interview.

“I had heard nothing but great things about (Taylor), and I liked what he had to say about where he is going with the offense,” Pollack said. “And obviously, the offensive line is a big part of that, what he wanted to do from that standpoint and what he needed help with and how I could be part of the solution to some of those problems he’s trying to solve.”

Namely, protect Burrow and improve a run game.

After Pollack left, the Bengals ranked 24th in rushing yards per game and 27th in rushing yards per attempt in 2019 and 2020.

And they were 23rd in sacks allowed in 2019 before falling to 27th last year in addition to ranking next to last in quarterback hits allowed.

Opponents hit Bengals quarterbacks 118 times last year, the most in franchise history since the league began tracking the stat in 2000. The next highest number was 81, which came in 2019.

Pollack knows what he needs to do. But he admitted the “how” part of it is still a work in progress as he began his first official day on the job after the team announced his hiring Saturday evening.

“We’ve got to get better in both those areas,” he said, referencing run blocking and pass protection. “This is kind of the time of the year when everyone is doing those little self-assessments, and I haven’t had a good chance to dig and drill down too much in that regard. But definitely need to get better and improve in some areas. We’ve got a lot of good parts there to work with. I’m excited about moving forward with those guys.”

Billy Price, whom Pollack had a big role in making the team’s first-round pick in 2018, expressed his excitement about getting to work with Pollack again shortly after the team announced the hire. And he said other linemen on the team who have worked with Pollack felt the same way, as did running Joe Mixon, who had his career highs in rushing yards (1,168), rushing touchdowns (eight) and yards per attempt (4.9) in his lone season with Pollack in 2018.

“It makes you feel good,” Pollack said of the praise he received from Bengals players who have worked with him. “Those guys had some success when I was out there the last time, and I enjoyed coaching those guys. They are a lot of fun to be around and that’s always nice to know you had a positive impact on some guys in the past and hopefully we have a bigger impact moving forward.”

But the biggest issue in fixing what ails the Bengals offense is more about the players Pollack doesn’t necessarily know, the new ones they plan to bring in to make the line better, whether it be via free agency, the draft or both.

The Bengals have the No. 5 overall pick, which means they’ll likely have their first or second choice of linemen if that’s the direction they elect to go. They also have the sixth-most money available under the salary cap, increasing the likelihood of another deep dip into free agency.

Six of the top 25 graded tackles in pass protection are heading into free agency — Trent Williams, Daryl Williams, Taylor Moton, Alejandro Villanueva, Kelvin Beachum and Mike Remmers.

Two of the top 10 overall graded guards will be free agents — Brandon Scherff and Joe Thuney, along with Green Bay’s Lane Taylor, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 1.

Pollack said he knows the line needs upgrades, but he’s not calling for an overhaul.

“We’re close,” he said. “Just based on our conversations there’s a lot there to keep and build on and continue and as I get into understanding a little bit more detail of what they’ve been doing and understanding verbiage and concepts and what they’re doing. What can I do to continue to promote it and build on it or modify on areas I find that need to be modified, but we’re close for sure.”

And when it comes to the type of guys he wants to bring in, Pollack has a checklist that will work well in Cincinnati, where coaches have a bigger role in terms of scouting. Pollack isn’t as concerned with what he sees from players on film, but what he sees in their eyes and hears in their voices.

“They have to love football and part of that is the physicality of it,” he said. “They have to be smart, tough and not so much physically tough (but) mentally tough. It’s a grind to really do this the right way. You have to love the grind. You have to love everything about football. That’s getting up early and working your butt off all day. Especially the offensive linemen. If your mindset is not to be the hardest worker on the team, then this isn’t going to be the group or the team for you.”

One thing that will be different about Pollack’s second stint with the Bengals — and different from every other job he’s had — is the adding title of run game coordinator. He will have a voice in who replaces Jemal Singelton as running backs coach and a big say in what the run game looks like. And to get there, his reach will go well beyond the offensive line.

“What guys always hear me harp on is that it’s the ultimate team game. You need all 11 guys to buy in, it’s not just the line, it’s not just the running back, it’s everyone involved — receivers to quarterback,” he said. “You need to have all 11 pieces clicking to have any success in the run game. Really that’s the entire facet of offense, passing game or running game. And two, the way I teach and my philosophy is you really have to master the mundane. You’ve got to find a few things, master them, own those and the adjustments off of those and not really be a jack of all trades.

“There are plenty of schemes out there and plenty of ways to skin a cat, but you can’t do them all,” he added. “What fits your players the best? What do you believe in? And where does that mirror up and you’re going to hang your hat on that? And you’ve got to drill and grind the shit out of it. You’ve got to have guys that can handle the monotony of going day in and day out and owning it. Not getting distracted with the new shiny thing that’s over there, that might be great for those guys over there, but it’s not for us. You’ve got to understand that to have success in the league.”

Taylor was so committed to Turner that there weren’t even any conversations between Taylor and Pollack two years ago.



JFC...  and then they only fire Turner?!   That's the "culture" right there.   It doesn't come from press conferences, it comes from this lack of accountability from the top down.


I always assumed Turner was more of a last resort & a chance for Ol' Musty to do some redeeming.  In truth he was Taylor's first choice, to the exclusion of even interviewing anyone else? Total incompetence.  Who cares about due diligence and hiring based on merit when you've got friends and family that need a job?


Waiting for the other shoe to drop & that contract extension announcement.

Yep, we now have our answer on why we lost Pollack and got stuck with Turner. This is on Zac and this is an example of where MB gave his coaches too much authority over hiring


This is on Taylor.  A team should let a new HC pick his assistants so there is no conflict, etc.  Taylor made a terrible decision.  Then again, based upon Turner's reputation MB could have vetoed that specific coach.

I see where they have a two round mock draft with us getting Sewell.

Brought tears to my eyes.

Do you have the full mock?  Would like to see who they have us getting in the second.

Two-round 2021 NFL mock draft: Four QBs early, DeVonta Smith reunites with Tua

Dane Brugler Jan 12, 2021comment-icon.png 359 save-icon.png

The quarterback movement this offseason will be fascinating.

Do the Colts bring back Philip Rivers or move on? How does the new Jets head coach feel about Sam Darnold? Do the 49ers have an upgrade in mind for Jimmy Garoppolo? What about Chicago? New England? Washington?

The questions go on and on. Several quarterback-needy teams will look to the draft to find the answers, which is one of the reasons many expect four quarterbacks to be selected in the top 10, which has only happened once — in 2018.

Aside from worthy quarterback talent at the top of the draft, several around the league also voiced a lack of optimism about the 2022 quarterback draft class (based on early scouting) as another contributing factor why teams will be more aggressive drafting quarterbacks in April.

What we know is there is more demand than supply, making this two-round mock draft an exercise of quarterback musical chairs.

Note: Picks 1-24 in the first round and picks 33-56 in the second round have been set. Which teams will make the other picks will be determined by playoff results.

First round

1. Jacksonville Jaguars — Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson
Regardless of the head coach or general manager, Lawrence is the guy at No. 1. While I wouldn’t put the “generational quarterback” label on him, he is a generational talent with his combination of size, mobility, arm talent, processing speed and intangibles.

2. New York Jets — Zach Wilson, QB, BYU
This is where the intrigue really starts. Should the Jets keep Darnold and build up the roster (either by drafting Oregon’s Penei Sewell or by trading back)? Or should they start fresh with a new quarterback? And if so, which one? Wilson’s accuracy and off-platform playmaking skills are why several around the league think he is the favorite at No. 2.

3. Miami Dolphins (from Houston Texans) — DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama
The Dolphins are proceeding with Tua Tagovailoa as their starting quarterback and they should have their sights set on getting him help. To take the next step in his development, Tagovailoa needs to learn the difference between “college open” and “NFL open” and reuniting him with Smith, who has elite ball skills and separation quickness, would speed up that learning curve.

4. Atlanta Falcons — Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State
Similar to when the Chiefs drafted Patrick Mahomes in the top 10 with an entrenched starter already on their roster, the Falcons have an opportunity to secure the future of the position with this pick. Matt Ryan has a complicated contract, but he is still a starting-level quarterback, and that would allow Atlanta to have patience with Fields before examining trade scenarios for Ryan.

5. Cincinnati Bengals — Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon
The Bengals (and Joe Burrow) might be on pins and needles at No. 5, hoping Sewell gets past the Jets, Dolphins and Falcons. Sewell isn’t the flawless prospect some make him out to be, but he is still an outstanding player with his big-man balance and flexibility — and he doesn’t turn 21 until October.

6. Philadelphia Eagles — Ja’Marr Chase, WR, LSU
Regardless of their quarterback situation, the Eagles need more firepower on offense. Chase, whose 84 catches last season were for 1,780 yards and 20 touchdowns, both SEC records, has the gear-changing acceleration and elite finishing skills that make him an immediate NFL weapon.

7. Detroit Lions — Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State
The Lions could be in the wide receiver market with this pick, but they also need difference-makers on defense. Although maturity concerns will follow him into the NFL, Parsons has a freaky combination of height, weight and speed, along with the skills to be a three-down player.

8. Carolina Panthers — Trey Lance, QB, North Dakota State
The Panthers need to upgrade at quarterback. It will just come down to how they feel about those in the draft. The concerns with Lance are obvious (he has only made 17 starts, all against FCS competition), but his talent, work ethic and college production are strong selling points. And with Teddy Bridgewater and P.J. Walker under contract, Carolina won’t need to rush Lance’s development.

9. Denver Broncos — Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech
If one of the top four quarterback prospects is still on the board, the Broncos will have an interesting decision to make. But the defense needs upgrades at every level, including at cornerback. Although he is still learning the position, Farley has a Pro Bowl ceiling due to his athleticism, length and natural ball instincts.

10. Dallas Cowboys — Rashawn Slater, OT, Northwestern
Many fans will disapprove of any pick that isn’t a defensive player, but the Cowboys’ offensive line woes were a constant theme all season. Not only does Slater have NFL-ready talent, he offers the versatility to play tackle or guard, giving the Cowboys much-needed flexibility.

11. New York Giants — Kyle Pitts, WR/TE, Florida
One of the priorities for Dave Gettleman this offseason will be to get his quarterback more weapons. Yes, Evan Engram was named a Pro Bowler, but he is entering a contract year and Pitts can play tight end or wide receiver and create mismatches with his size, athleticism and ball skills.

12. San Francisco 49ers — Patrick Surtain II, CB, Alabama
The 49ers don’t have any cornerbacks under contract for next season so saying cornerback is a need is an understatement. And in this scenario, need matches talent with Surtain, who might not have elite speed or twitch but has NFL-ready cover skills and instincts.

13. Los Angeles Chargers — Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech
The Chargers offensive line was among the worst this season. Imagine what Justin Herbert and the offense could do with more protection up front? Darrisaw is a bully who moves with balance and would give the franchise a long-term answer at left tackle.

14. Minnesota Vikings — Gregory Rousseau, edge, Miami (Fla.)
The lack of a consistent pass rush by the Vikings will eat at Mike Zimmer all offseason. The organization might be in position to draft the top pass rusher on its board, and that could be Rousseau, who has the length, flexibility and upside to blossom in Minnesota.

15. New England Patriots — Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama
The Patriots will examine several quarterback options this offseason, but it might not matter much unless they add more playmakers. Waddle and his special athleticism would be an instant shot of adrenaline for the offense.

16. Arizona Cardinals — Jaycee Horn, CB, South Carolina
There is no question Horn needs to improve his discipline and finishing skills to stay on the field in the NFL. But he is a long, agile athlete with the instincts and competitive mentality that remind some scouts of Aqib Talib, and he would give the Cardinals an immediate upgrade at the position.

17. Las Vegas Raiders — Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB, Notre Dame
With his explosive nature, Owusu-Koramoah could easily be a top-10 pick, although his role will vary depending on scheme. That will cloud his projection. One of the few certainties with the Raiders’ defense? It needs athletic playmakers and Owusu-Koramoah could fill that void.

18. Miami Dolphins — Kwity Paye, edge, Michigan
The Dolphins received surprising pass-rush production from Emmanuel Ogbah and Andrew Van Ginkel, but there is no such thing as too many pass rushers. Paye is an outstanding run defender and his twitchy lower body and relentless energy help him break down the rhythm of blockers.

19. Washington Football Team — Alijah Vera-Tucker, OT/G, USC
Although Cornelius Lucas played above expectations this season, left tackle is a position Washington will consider upgrading. Vera-Tucker was graded as a second-round guard before the season, but he moved to left tackle and played at a high level, boosting his draft grade.

20. Chicago Bears — Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State
There is an obvious need at quarterback in Chicago, but the demand outweighs the supply, especially with several other teams needing quarterbacks drafting in this range. The Bears also need to invest in their offensive line and Jenkins has experience at left tackle, right tackle and guard.

21. Indianapolis Colts — Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia
One of the most intriguing defensive prospects in the draft, Campbell, who was high school teammates with Surtain, doesn’t always play confident, but his size and athleticism are first-round worthy. At 6-foot-2, he has outstanding length and moves like a much smaller player.

22. Tennessee Titans — Zaven Collins, LB, Tulsa
The Titans need to address several spots in their front seven and a versatile player like Collins will be very intriguing to coach Mike Vrabel. At 6-foot-3 and 260 pounds, he can rush the passer or play in space as an off-ball linebacker who creates impact plays. He had 11.5 tackles for loss and four interceptions and scored two touchdowns this season.

23. New York Jets (from Seattle Seahawks) — Azeez Ojulari, edge, Georgia
With three of the top 34 picks, the Jets can address plenty of needs, including pass rusher. Only a redshirt sophomore, Ojulari needs to diversify his pass-rush plan, but he is an explosive athlete with the dip-and-rip cornering skills to pressure the pocket.

24. Pittsburgh Stealers — Mac Jones, QB, Alabama
Ben Roethlisberger’s future in Pittsburgh is uncertain and the Stealers already know his successor isn’t on the roster. Jones is a tough prospect to evaluate because of the perfect situation around him at Alabama, but he deserves credit for his poise in the pocket and consistent decision-making.

25. Jacksonville Jaguars (from Los Angeles Rams) — Christian Barmore, DT, Alabama
Only a redshirt sophomore, Barmore has been my top-ranked defensive tackle since the summer, but that ranking was based more on potential than consistent production. However, the Philadelphia native has continued to develop this season and unlocked his power and athleticism, which is what the Jaguars need on their defensive line.

26. Cleveland Browns — Jaelan Phillips, edge, Miami (Fla.)
With Myles Garrett frequently facing multiple blockers, the Browns need to add another pass rusher opposite him. Phillips is a first-round talent with his athletic movements and handwork, but his landing spot on draft day will come down to teams’ medical grades.

27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers — Najee Harris, RB, Alabama
Bruce Arians wants a reliable pass-catcher at running back and neither Ronald Jones nor Ke’Shawn Vaughn have proved to be that (and Leonard Fournette likely not back). The Bucs were ready to draft Antonio Gibson for that role in last year’s second round before Antoine Winfield fell to them, so I expect Harris to be strongly considered here if still available for Tampa.

28. Baltimore Ravens — Joseph Ossai, edge, Texas
With Matt Judon, Yannick Ngakoue, Pernell McPhee and Tyus Bowser slated to hit free agency, the Ravens might be looking for pass-rush help in the draft. Ossai has some Justin Houston to his game with his body type, get-off speed and nonstop effort.

29. New Orleans Saints — Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State
Wide receiver isn’t atop the list of their most pressing needs, but the Saints are always looking to add dynamic athleticism on offense and have never been shy drafting Ohio State players.

30. Buffalo Bills — Jalen Mayfield, OT/G, Michigan
With several pending free agents on the offensive line, the Bills might be in a position to use an early round draft pick on a tackle or guard. Mayfield consistently improved as the Wolverine’s right tackle and he has the skill set to slide inside to guard if needed, which would give Buffalo flexibility.

31. Green Bay Packers — Daviyon Nixon, DT, Iowa
One of the most impressive risers this season, Nixon flashes the power to stack blockers and quickness to leverage gaps, posting 13 tackles for loss in seven games. The last time the Packers drafted an Iowa defensive lineman, Mike Daniels proved to be a steal. Nixon could have a similar impact.

32. Kansas City Chiefs — Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida
The Chiefs are in great shape with their offensive skill players so an offensive lineman or a defender might be more likely. But if the Chiefs lean into their strengths, Toney would be an intriguing fit as a versatile player who can line up across the formation and be a big play waiting to happen.

Second round

33. Jacksonville Jaguars — Wyatt Davis, OG, Ohio State
Once the Jaguars have their quarterback, investing in the offensive line is always a wise move. Former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer called Davis’ recruitment “one of the most enjoyable” experiences he has ever had, but regardless of who ends up as the Jaguars’ head coach, Davis would be an upgrade over A.J. Cann at right guard.

34. New York Jets — Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame
35. Atlanta Falcons —    Jayson Oweh, edge, Penn State
36. Miami Dolphins (from Houston Texans) — Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson
37. Philadelphia Eagles — Nick Bolton, LB, Missouri
38. Cincinnati Bengals — Asante Samuel, CB, Florida State
39. Carolina Panthers — Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas
With Russell Okung and Taylor Moton set to become free agents, the Panthers might need to replace both starting tackles. From his time in the Big 12, head coach Matt Rhule is familiar with Cosmi, who offers the intangibles and toughness that fit Carolina’s culture.

40. Denver Broncos — Jordan Smith, edge, UAB
41. Detroit Lions — Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota
42. New York Giants — Carlos Basham, edge, Wake Forest
43. San Francisco 49ers — Joe Tryon, edge, Washington
44. Dallas Cowboys — Trevon Moehrig, FS, TCU
The last time the Cowboys drafted a safety in the first two rounds was when they took Roy Williams in 2002, so Moehrig would go counter to the organization’s drafting history. But he would give Dallas a much-needed upgrade over free safety Xavier Woods.

45. Jacksonville Jaguars (from Minnesota Vikings) — Pat Freiermuth, TE, Penn State
46. New England Patriots — Levi Onwuzurike, DT, Washington
47. Los Angeles Chargers — Eric Stokes, CB, Georgia
48. Las Vegas Raiders — Jay Tufele, DT, USC
49. Arizona Cardinals — Chazz Surratt, LB, North Carolina
50. Miami Dolphins — Josh Myers, OC, Ohio State
51. Washington Football Team — Terrace Marshall, WR, LSU
52. Chicago Bears — Dyami Brown, WR, North Carolina
With Allen Robinson possibly playing elsewhere, the Bears could be in the market for a dynamic wide receiver worth developing. With skills like Stefon Diggs, Brown has big-play speed (he averaged more than 20 yards per catch the last two seasons) and will continue to rise throughout the process.

53. Tennessee Titans — Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue
54. Indianapolis Colts — Alex Leatherwood, OT, Alabama
55. Pittsburgh Stealers — Elijah Molden, CB, Washington
56. Seattle Seahawks — Trey Smith, OG, Tennessee
Listing offensive line as a need for the Seahawks is an offseason tradition. Seattle had favorable results after drafting Damien Lewis, a mauling guard from the SEC, on Day 2 last year, so why not follow that formula? Smith could be plugged in as the starting left guard for the season opener.

57. Los Angeles Rams — Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama
58. Tampa Bay Buccaneers — Tommy Togiai, DT, Ohio State
59. Baltimore Ravens — Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC
60. Cleveland Browns — Ifeatu Melifonwu, CB, Syracuse
There are several upgrades needed in Cleveland’s secondary, including at outside cornerback. Melifonwu has room to improve his anticipation, but he has the rare physical gifts in his length, speed and fluidity to match up against different types of NFL receivers.

61. New Orleans Saints — Jevon Holland, FS, Oregon
62. Buffalo Bills — Rashad Weaver, edge, Pittsburgh
63. Green Bay Packers — Greg Newsome II, CB, Northwestern
64. Kansas City Chiefs — Dayo Odeyingbo, DL, Vanderbilt

Thank you and appreciate it.

Would love it if Round One fell that way.

So would Athens Joe.

Round Two is interesting and I don't know much about Samuel.

Cosmi and Leatherwood have both been projected as first rounders in other drafts.

Sewell and one of them plus hope hope Jonah Williams can stay healthy.  Move one to guard.

Ohio State's Center was listed as available, too, but I'm gun shy about Ohio State Centers.

Actually, hope Pollack can get something out of Billy.  I'm not crazy about Hopkins, either.  Center can be upgraded.

Enough meat coming back, Spain ie, that they should fill in the blanks and have depth.


I think hot rat du jour WR Smith is a candle.  One blow and he is out.
