To be the man, you have to beat the man.  Right now Mahomes is the man.
 

We’ll see on Sunday.

No...

Tom Brady is the man.

Still the defending SB champ no ?

Mahomes had the chance to dethrone

him ..

He didnt...

Brady is still the 2nd best QB in the league this year..

Only JB ranks ahead of him..

Yes, Brady is the man, but Mahomes is the man in the AFC.  Super Bowl ring and got there last year.  Love Burrow, but he has to beat him to make those claims.

Yeah, well, Joe Burrow is the man in the AFC North, in temperatures below 45 degrees and a southeasterly wind. If Mahomes wants to be the man, he has to beat the man. (In the AFC North in temper....)

Yes, Lou will have a tough task ahead of him. As would anyone. It's weird to me... You're like "He hasn't proven anything over 15 games. If he can't shut down the best offense in the NFL, he's nothing! Nothing I say! If he's such a great coach, how come Markus Bailey can't cover a Pro-Bowl TE? Hmmmm?? Thought so."

The '85 Bears still gave up points. Ray Lewis' Ravens didn't go undefeated. And hell, I'm just giving a shout out for righting the damn ship and playing "good" defense. I'm not asking to tear down the statue of Dick LeBeau yet.

I didn’t say anything like that.  We’ll see what happens, but the Chiefs are the favorite for a reason.  Love to see a statement game by Burrow, Anarumo, and the rest of the Bengals, but they have to do it first.

The reason may be their OL is better than ours..

Hubbard and Co have to come up big..

He isn’t going to out-throw the KC God-man. 

 

Guess what...he out-played, out-threw and out-gunned the KC God-man.

Why you thought he couldn't is beyond me.

As for DVOA, it sounds kinda like the WAR stat in baseball; one that people praise but in the end no one really knows the formula. In this case I hope it's accurate and predicative for our Bengals moving forward this year

They have the formula on their site. Basically it's a weighted stat that recognizes the difference between giving up 3 yards on first and ten vs. giving up 3 yards on 3rd and 2.

My best examples would be the NFL talking heads praising our running game because Joe Mixon gets 8 yards on first and ten while we see an offense that struggles to convert 3rd and 1 on the ground. Points per game doesn't tell you how many times the offense turned it over in their own half. How many time Darius Phillips muffed a kick.

My moniker comes from Kingspoint Academy where Lou was Coach on Long Island.  My brother was a graduate from there.  He had Nuclear Engineering and Mechanical Engineering degrees along with obtaining the skills to be a Navigator of oil tankers.  Throughout the history of the Merchant Marines (going back for centuries and even milleniums), merchant marines were the best choices for espionage as they had reasons to be in foreign ports while having knowledge of local customs and languages.

 

I didn't say why I supported Lou from the beginning as I knew he was inexperienced and it would take a few years for the results to show up, but I was adamant when I first spoke of him that his players would respect him and that they would play hard for him, and that he was a good teacher.  If you ever get a moment to look at the resume's of those who have taught at the U. S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kingspoint, you'll see that the teachers are the very best at what they do from experience gleaned throughout the world.  They make any teachers at Harvard, Stanford, Cambridge or Oxford look like idiots.  Like the U. S. Naval Academy, it takes a Senator's recommendation just to apply for admission.  50% of all Freshman (and these are the very best and brightest academicians and physical specimens (bad teeth will get you denied) each State has to offer) don't make it after a lifetime of preparing to get there.  Average sleeptime for a freshman is about 3 hours per night...for the entire year (there's no such thing as "Summer Vacation").

 

Kingspoint would not have ever hired Lou had he not already been able to be amongst the World's best instructors for these exceptional young men and women.  He is the anti-Marvin Lewis.  He's Mike Zimmer, but with intelligence, patience and wisdom.

 

Anyway, I came here tonight to congratulate Bengals' fans for joys of today's experience, especially, Le Tigre, spicoli and quite a few others who have gone through the last 53 years' ups and downs.  As Burrow said, "This is fun".  Two Centuries ago Cincinnati was the Capital of the NW Territory and the Nation's 4th largest City.  Perhaps soon it will be the Defending Super Bowl Champions. 

 

Who Dey!
