  2. Bengals' [other] Needs

    In seeing what they have done in free agency, I would change my vote at this point to the interior of the o-line. I went with CB when first posted and while they still might add another one in the draft, it's no longer the priority I once viewed it. With CB moving down the pecking order, I think WR also moves up.
  3. Bengals' [other] Needs

    Good points by Mem above. Our coaches got up close involvement with these guys, everyone else is getting social distanced.

  5. Bengals' [other] Needs

    Not only do I think the lions and bengals staffs have a leg up during the draft and evaluation process due to having been the senior bowl coaching staffs under the Covid social distancing regime, but I also think the bengals and lions will be uniquely positioned to do VERY well in the UDFA scrum as they will immediately be familiar with some of the undrafted players they saw at the senior bowl and those players and their agents may want to be with coaches that have already spent time with them...
  6. My Wishlist for #33

    Odd, I went back to look at last years draft day trades specific to the 2nd round. Obviously we traded down last year and picked Drew "Simple", TE. They traded down ten spots from #42 to #52 and picked up a 4th and 5th in the trade. Last year, the Panthers also traded down ten spots from #37 to #47 and picked up a 3rd in trade.
  7. My Wishlist for #33

    The more mocks I look at the more appealing a trade down becomes. I don’t think it will happen because someone almost always falls unexpectedly, but if things go more or less as seems to be expected, I’m just not that awed with the choices at 33. In that case I hope they can drop down and pick up an extra 4th.
  8. My Wishlist for #33

    The draft is wide open after the first pick, due to some unbelievable FA moves. It is weird to say that about the Bengals. BPA all the way for round 2
  9. My Wishlist for #33

    Every time amphar argues for a TE in round two or three god kills a puppy.

    The Mrs. works part time in the dental field and their office has closed. Her part time dental gig has turned into full time teacher at home with the kids. I get her frustration, as I would go crazy given that situation as well. She also worries with me coming home from work, knowing we have active COVID patients in house now.
  11. My Wishlist for #33

    We can sit and discuss this until we are blue in the face, but there are questions I wish I knew the answer to in order to truly make a better guess. I agree and think they need to focus on another OT and OG. I'm actually hoping for one each, or instead of an OG, a versatile OC. However, the coaches aren't putting anything out there that would suggest they are displeased with the roster in it's current state. Is that a load of shit, posturing before the draft or a fairly solid thought process ?? The answer will determine their direction with #33 being in play. Next, what is the schematic thought for the defense. They aren't the traditional 4-3 defense and their alignments would seem to explain some of their FA decisions. There were times last year where they were in a 4-3-4, a 4-2-5 and even a 5-2-4. The need for CB's seems the priority along with LB's who can cover better. The "2" in those schemes may better indicate why they aren't focusing so much on adding a LB early on, but the results from last year would suggest upgrades are certainly needed. The way I see it is that they could either add o-line or LB talent at #33 and i'm going to be happy. I agree in that I won't be upset with a speed WR either and expect one at some point within the first 4 rounds. I think as well that TE will be in the mix, but not so sure it will or should be early on. I don't think there's much difference in talent throughout the class.
  12. Bengals take Burrow but .........

    You might need another cigarette. I did...
  13. 2020 Draft

    was getting them at the top of r2, tho.......
  14. My Wishlist for #33

    At the top of my wish list is a candidate/prospect for Offensive Tackle. It's a deep class and I hope 1 falls. I'm thinking blocking for Joe Mixon at #33. Blocking for one Joe benefits another Joe. 1. Tackle. Josh Jones would be a nice acquisition. If remember correctly his performance at the Senior Bowl was great and thus he's been projected in the first round since then. 2. Mauler at RG. There are plenty of candidates for this. Plus I wouldn't be against drafting a Center and moving that player or Hopkins. At the end of the day. There is 0 proven talent on the line at all. Hopkins a bright surprise in a pool of crap is just a mid pack Center. I would love these two position at 33 and 65. 3a In line traditional TE. I would love to have the ND TE. He fits exactly what they need. Supposedly they want to play 2 TEs a lot so it doesn't over write last year's pick of Sample. I think those are critical edge blocking needs that are often overlooked in the struggles of the run game and pass protection. 3b. WR - They simply don't have speed when Green and Ross are of the field. Those two have been off the field A LOT. If there is some deep speed candidates falling to 33 they have to be considered. LB - Because of FA - I'm putting off until 3rd round unless something unthinkable slides. But it's a critical need BUT you also have Pratt and the number of snaps these guys play amount to a situational player. Although same can be said for In-line TE but I think the need for protecting Burrow trumps that.

    Lol yeah the flower thing will be happening for me soon. Was supposed to be this weekend but it rained. As soon as we get some good weather tho she’ll be coming home with flats of plants. She is actually perfectly happy to dig and plant herself, but this also includes new topsoil in spots and acres of mulch, so I have to preposition a couple dozen 50 pound bags of dirt and mulch all around the house. Normally I’d complain but my wife works retail and I’m just happy for every day she doesn’t come home sick.
  16. 2020 Draft

    I don’t mind it during the week. I work all day and then come home knowing I don’t have to do a damn thing. My alcohol intake has increased but I’m more than content. The weekends are another story. My wife and kids just want to get out of the house. I don’t blame them but you guys know the deal. This morning my wife says, I’m going out to plant flowers, you coming out ?? To you single guys, that might seem pretty innocent. However, to us married guys you know the translation is, being your ass outside and dig some fucking holes. Understanding that, my obvious response to that question was a solid, NO... The couch sure has gotten comfortable.

    I’m loving it. I do get out for about an hour a day to walk the dogs. We have big county parks nearby, you could hold Woodstock in them and keep everyone 10 feet apart.
  19. 2020 Draft

    Getting Jones or Ruiz at top of 3 is a win. Good LBer options available in 3 or 4.

    Times like these really make me appreciate being able to go to work. At least I get to get out and about.

    Fuck. I’m fucking going crazy in this house.
  23. 2020 Draft

    In every draft I have tried to do on TDN, Queen is never available at 33. He goes in bottom third of round 1 without fail let me try one more time, see if he's there..... yep, he went at 28 and I'm stuck with Josh Jones OT Houston or Ruiz from Michigan Queen seems kinda small, also is is a outside or inside guy?
  24. 2020 Draft

    Yes please: (my regular evening mock on TDN) 1 Joe Burrow, QB 33 Patrick Queen, LB 65 Lucas Niang, OT 107 Damien Lewis, IOL 147 Devin Duvernay, WR 180 Antonio Gandy-Golden WR 215 Davion Taylor, LB
  25. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    Yeah I was just ripping on Sample again. I’d be happy with Trautman 3rd round onward though.
  26. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    I’m getting the impression that Taylor’s biggest strength was a weakness of Marvin’s: charisma. Obviously there’s more to coaching, but for the moment it’s refreshing.
