    Yes, it is
  4. Rd. 3 78&79

    I also like the fact that Ross has apparently spent a good amount of the off season working with Housh. For as pissed off as I was with Marvin coming back, I'm at least back to being intrigued about the 2018 Bengals. Said it before and will say it again. It's all on the o-line...
  5. Rd. 3 78&79

    None other than AJ Green is singing Ross’ praises this year. He’s pretty reticent most of the time, which in my mind lends even more credence to the good things he’s saying about Ross.
  6. Status update:

    I'm bored as hell waiting for the football season to start.

    That is all.

  7. Rd. 3 78&79

    Hearing all the right things about Ross at this point - healthy, restored confidence, impressing in OTAs. This is how last year should have (in a perfect world) gone for him. Looking forward to seeing what he can do on the field. Heck, his reverse was - until the fumble, of course - pretty damn impressive, actually
  8. Rd. 3 78&79

    Yes, he should. You don't begin to think about cutting someone with his speed. He gets every opportunity to make a difference. He was hurt last year, now is he not (at this point). He actually took reps yesterday in practice, something that apparently barely happened last year. He's not going anywhere. You cutting him to make room for Auden Tate and his 4.68 40?
  9. Rd. 3 78&79

    Yeah, his draft position will make him a lock for the coming seasons. This season is going to be make or break for Ross. I'm at least hoping we see his work in the offseason translate on the field. That pick and adding that speed (right or wrong) intrigued me greatly. I thought having AJ, Ross, Boyd and Malone as a 1-4 would open all sorts of opportunities in the passing game. The 2017 o-line was never going to see that come to fruition. Adding a heal.... a health..... adding a healthy Eifert (boy that took some effort) only adds more pressure to opposing defenses. Much like last year though, this offense is only going as far as the revamped o-line allows.
  10. At that point in time I don't think I would have cared as much. Finally winning a playoff game against the Steelers at home ?? Yeah, that would have carried me through the offseason. Instead we all witnessed the end of what should have been something special for the Bengals.
  11. The Bengals might have won that 2005 playoff game vs. the Steelers. If they would have won, they would have then played Denver in Denver. THEN if they would have won that game they would have had to play Peyton Manning and the Colts in Indianapolis OR have had to play New England. I think there is a slim chance they could have beaten the Broncos. I don't think they had a chance to beat the Colts. The 2005 Bengals defense was just not very good. They created turnovers and that was it.
  12. I've seen too many Marvin Lewis playoff games to believe the first one was going to end differently even with Palmer. The defense took a glorious shit in the second half of that game as much as the offense did.
  13. Rd. 3 78&79

    I agree that Ross is a lock, but I'm not sure he should be.
  14. Rd. 3 78&79

    Considering that there is word that MJ could lose his job to Willis, they have Lawson who is also a DE regardless of how they carry him, and they brought in Chris Baker, there will be much competition for those spots. There’s no way Hubbard doesn’t make this team. Funny because I was looking at Tate today and as much as I like his size and red zone abilities, he doesn’t make the team minus an injury. Green, Ross, Boyd are locks. I would be shocked if Erickson isn’t a lock as well. Then you still have LaFell (who could be cut) Malone and Core. That’s 7 already and no one should count on them keeping that many. Here’s how I see it: Price, Bates, Hubbard, Jefferson, Walton and Phillips make the team. Everyone else to the practice squad unless injuries happen. Then again I could be wrong. Who knows ??
  15. Rd. 3 78&79

    You're losing me TJ. Unless Hubbard somehow doesn't make this team out of camp, I don't get calling bust. And the 11th of 11 draft picks not making the team means he's busted? I mean, isn't the default setting for 7th round picks to NOT make the team (for pretty much all teams)? Put differently, there is NO way that all 11 picks makes the 53-man squad. Simply no way. Unless one of the cuts is to the guys taken in the first four rounds, not sure I get the premise of your thought when we are just now getting OTAs...
  16. Rd. 3 78&79

    well, I dont consider the round. Bust is bust for me, though yeah, I concede that if a 1st rounder busts thats a bigger deal for a team, financially in particular, than if a r7 player busts So I'll add that I think Auden Tate will bust as well
  17. Rd. 3 78&79

    Just because? he's a 3rd round pick, how much can he bust?
  18. Rd. 3 78&79

    Hubbard is a motor guy. He won't be the one getting outworked. Typically guys like that don't bust out. Knowing there's going to be some competition for the other starting DE spot, I expect that battle to be a good one. I also expect Hubbard to be right in the mix for a backup spot though. Sure, anything is possible, but he wouldn't be at the top of that prediction list for me.
  19. Rd. 3 78&79

    Calling it now - Sam Hubbard will be a bust. As always, hoping I am wrong, and will be happy to be wrong.
  20. UDFA signings

    no, that can't be, as that is MY name....
  21. 2018 Reds

    Maybe they could pick up Domata Peko. I heard he was a really good leader somewhere before.
  22. Earlier
  23. 2018 Reds

    True, the reds are currently in the middle of their 20 year rebuild plan. The tribe had it there for a couple years, but things are slowly coming undone. As I previously stated, the bullpen is failing, but that’s not all there is to it. They let Carlos Santana go to the Phillies in the off season. Dude was kind of a strange fellow, but it’s becoming clear to me that he was a very respected leader of the Hispanic players on the team. Without him, there seems to be an intangible missing. We’ll see who they can get when teams become sellers, things could change. Until then if they can just stay at .500, it would be a huge success.
  24. UDFA signings

    My neighbor's dachshund exhibits more aggression and resolve than GoByeMe. Thor Hair D2 guy makes the roster, or my name isn't Sandra Atticwizard.
  25. Not that it matters now, but I thought the Bengals were going to win that game heading into it. Seeing Palmer go down like that ranks up there as one of the worst moments as a Bengals fan. Totally changed the trajectory of this organization.
  26. UDFA signings

    People are now grading the UDFA signings ?? Don't get me wrong, I love the draft, but seriously ?? I think that's a bit of overkill there. Just tell me who the players are and move on. If we just HAVE to grade it, I give it an A+. I mean why not ?? Extra players to take snaps in camp that don't cost the club shit. The Bengals actually find some of these guys that make the roster as well. Is there a grade higher than A+ ??
  27. UDFA signings

    Baker mayfield’s C from OK State replaced some G named Osi
