Schedule Release thread

If Parrish and Williams are worthy, I'd go with them next, since they are older and have been waiting longer.

 

I understand those who would prioritize merit, but would putting Dillon in this year, following his tirade last year, be perceived as rewarding what some would consider inappropriate comments? And should the franchise consider his bitterness and actions from 2003 when deciding if he gets in? I'm on the HOF committee for the university I work for, and we have what we call the "turd factor". If a student-athlete was a big enough turd, they haven't gotten in, and that has left one All American and a couple other otherwise-deserving candidates out.

 

If Corey had tried to make amends, I might be more sympathetic, but his comments last year would seem to indicate that he's still burning bridges. Shitting on someone you want something from would not seem to be an effective strategy toward getting what you want.

Bengals are biggest favorites of Week 1 with 8.5-point line over Patriots

 

The Bengals are the team with the best odds to start the season 1-0. Which means the Patriots are the team with the best odds to start the season 0-1.

 

With the 2024 NFL schedule released, betting lines are out for every game, and in Week One, Cincinnati is the heaviest favorite. The Bengals are favored by 8.5 points over the Patriots.

 

That’s no surprise, as the Bengals are expected to be among the best teams in the NFL with a healthy Joe Burrow, while the Patriots are expected to be among the worst teams in the NFL with new head coach Jerod Mayo trying to rebuild after the team went south at the end of Bill Belichick’s tenure.

 

The Patriots may need to get used to being underdogs: They’re underdogs in every game this season. New England and Carolina are the only two teams in the NFL that are not favored in any games.

Every one of those players belong on that Wall. Figure they all will, eventually. It’s no reduction in their greatness by not being chosen until later.

Really, you think guys like Breech and Lapham belong in the RoH? What's your criteria? Simply being part of a Super Bowl roster?

Criteria is a really valid question and excellent point. 

 

I'd like to think it includes not only their playing days achievements, but also what kind of teammate they were, what kind of a person they are, how they've given back over the years, and how much they have championed/supported the Bengals since retirement from playing.  IMHO if those points are considered, then yes I would think Breech and Lapham would eventually make it.  But that's just my take of course and probably not the criteria used.

Since it is the Bengals Ring of Honor…and not the Hall of Fame…”criteria” (stats/awards/etc) is subjective. 
 

Too be honest, and again emphasizing the group presented are all great Bengal players, there are certainly many more great Bengal players who were never on that list. These are the choices however. 
 

Jim Breech belongs because fans remember him. And he was a marvelous kicker. So was Horst Muhlmann—who is not remembered. Dave Lapham was a long-standing/solid NFL guard…but fans likely only remember him because he is in their eyes and ears as a media personality. Few, if anyone, remembers Pat Matson. 
 

Not much to debate, if these are the choices.

I would think throwing his pads into the stands and a domestic violence conviction would exclude Dillon but he scored lots of touchdowns & stuff so who knows...

Self serving ..

Jim Brerch was mediocre at best.

 

All this fanfare for a kicker that excelled between 30-39 yards is laughable.

Was 50% from 40-49..

6 for 26 beyond 50..

 

Marvelous kicker?

Not even close..

Plus he more than once shoved me into the boards in indoor soccer.  He thought it was okay to play soccer like hockey…it isn’t.  Foul called both times. 😎

 

I also quickly learned  that if he was winding up for a right-footed shot, you had better get out of the way.  🤪

Nuance is lost on you, it seems. 
 

Go back and read the post in context. I’m not going to debate a point not placed.

Fair enough.

Your the one that said "marvelous kicker"  not me.

Just wanted to clarify his abilities as a Bengal.
