    Buckeye coach just took the job a couple months ago. He couldn’t see breaking his commitment 2 months in before he even played a game. I’m not sure why anyone at PBS thought that would be a good guy to pursue.

    Saw the Bengals wanted to talk to the Ohio State defense coordinator but he turned them down as well. My question is WHY! Why are they going to college ranks for this position. I don't get what they are doing but hey whatever. Whatever happened to the Rams guy did he even interview
  4. It would be funny. Marvin you get to coach some of the worst starting linemen in the NFL, and probably the worst collection of centers ever. Here new guy, go buy some all pro linemen and install your air raid or whatever we’re going to run.

    Fuck Melvin

    I call bullshit. Tell me a team that wouldn’t take Atkins and Dunlap for another 3-4 years. There is young talent with Lawson and Hubbard as well. You can throw Jordan Willis in that mix as well. What the fuck ever...

    Grantham is right about our linebackers though. As in we don’t have any. Unless Vontaze discovers some amazing new masking agent that no one can detect yet. Our linebacker room is the real national emergency, not that that son of a bitch Trump gives a crap, even after my 100 plus emails sent through my infowars account so I knew he’d read them. I’m like, “national emergency = send troops to the draft and sieze the top 5 linebackers for the Bengals, peace and prosperity reigns and enemy of the people media are defeated.” He doesn’t even answer, too busy sending a regiment of artillery to southern Arizona to deal with some 9 year old girl who snuck in with her Dora the Explorer backpack.

    So you are Marvin Lewis and the bengals just suddenly go out and being in top tier free agent talent... Let Taylor decide what coaches stay and who goes.... Here’s your thought “ Shit, I tried to get Mike to do that for 16 years... “

    Seriously, I giggle like a little school girl when I think about that dumpster fire in Shittsburgh. cant wait until the Raper retires then the wheels will fall off so hard the Lumina will finally catch up and pass them

    I love it. Best NFL news in a decade haha

    Exactly. Spin it this way. Let’s say it’s an guy for OC... Yeah not sure about that AJ Green, he’s 30 and you know, may not fit my offense right... and only 1 other 1st round receiver and just a 2nd rounder coming off a career year on his first contract...yeah the pieces just aren’t fitting... — Sorry, don’t buy any of these guys are turning down jobs with the Bengals because of roster talent
  12. I knew you weren’t expecting it, none of us are. We can hope though!

    The Bengals have fired coordinators recently. Why would some take a lateral move and risk losing money and rep? Guys making money at big time colleges also get the perks of being a celeb in their sports communities. I call it lateral because the money is similar, the risk of failure is greater, and with the new NFL’s passing rules some college guys just aren’t going to give up what they’ve already got. And Shula’s dead on about Atkins and Dunlap... watch them during game time. Those guys are two of the best in the world.
  14. Marvin Fired - 12/31/2018

    Did we have some sort of mystery turnover on our roster between the time he agreed to not just one but two interviews? Because it sure seems like he’d know who we had before he’d even talk to us.
  15. Marvin Fired - 12/31/2018

    Finally some "reasons" in the Enquirer: I don't know, those seem like excuses because Grantham wanted to negotiate himself a raise. Again I thought that being able to utilize Hubbard, Lawson and (maybe) Dunlap as outside/edge LB's in a 3-4 would actually make it easier on a DC who needs to replace 3 LB positions otherwise in a 4-3. Maybe I'm missing something. Atkins being 30 is silly, same with Dunlap, in this case. They'll hold you over for 2-3 years while you find new guys, what's the fuss? Did this guy expect to be handed a top 5 NFL defense with young players at every position? So it just seems like an excuse, or maybe something the writer made-up, as I didn't see any source mentioned for those comments.

  17. Changing Things Up With Free Agents / Draft

    I didn’t say I was expecting it. I’d rather doubt it. I’m just thinking what would really help this team. I think Ju’waan Taylor and they think Bobby Hart.
  18. I think we’re expecting too much. It would be awesome if Taylor were allowed to sign top tier free agents. But that would be a radical departure from the past few years. The ghost of that receiver we signed, pretty much a top tier guy, who then got hurt and I don’t think he ever played, that ghost is haunting us.

    Like I said, I am just happy he's been given the ability to make the selection that fits him best. I'll worry about whomever the selection is, once they start playing and we see what happens on the field. Until that point in time, it's hard to say one person will suck or be great.
  20. Marvin Fired - 12/31/2018

    Keep in mind. Lewis coordinated one of the greatest defenses ever. His defenses sucked until Zimmer showed up and they started hitting on draft picks. Many many X-Raven defense coaches were promoted up the ladder even up to head coach. They should all write Ray Lewis a check. Lewis had bad hires at D-Coordinators. It’s a critical hire but these past weeks are being overblown. The biggest thing will be talent for any new d-coordinator. Same with O-line.

    Marquand Manuel. 1. I think today’s NFL is going to require hybrid safeties. Players that can run/cover but also function as LB. So him being a former safety is a plus. Mostly he’s just a grinder. 6th round pick grinded out 8/9 year career. Scholar in Highschool and College. Might have gotten his masters. Soon as his NFL playing days are over he’s grinding up the ladder in coaching. His Atlanta Falcons defense sucked. So we’ll see what happens but I think he’ll bring a lot of good reality experience to the table. Del Rio would have been my choice but a young secondary type coach would have been my choice over Capers. Grantham was surprising to me. First that he even considered it. But then 2nd interview and eventual Florida raise. IMO, that’s pretty impressive for Taylor even if he didn’t land him.

    Disregard. /edit
  23. Changing Things Up With Free Agents / Draft

    We are a tad over 3 week away from free agency. My big curiosity is if they give Taylor the same level of autonomy with free agents as with coaching ?? Ju'Waan Taylor at RT would be an amazing start. Jordan Hicks at LB would be another great addition. It would be nice to see the Bengals take a scaled down version of free agency that the Rams did to put them in the Super Bowl. I say scaled down because I still believe this team does in fact have talent on it. A skilled RT and LB would help both sides of the ball and set up the draft very well.
  24. Marvin Fired - 12/31/2018

    Yea I'm not understanding how they can block him either, but didn't the Bengals block Vance Joseph that one year?
  25. Marvin Fired - 12/31/2018

    I would have liked to see what Del Rio would have done with the defense, but if Taylor doesn't want him, then screw Del Rio. I'm good with him having the autonomy to bring in someone that fits (even if they are a no body) then to simply fill a slot by being forced. Yeah, I didn't think teams could block a promotion either. Glenn is considered an up and coming coaching candidate. Marquand Manuel ?? What's your thoughts on him AMPHAR ?? Can't say as he does anything for me as a candidate.
  26. Marvin Fired - 12/31/2018

    I’m sure Bengals leaked the Del Rio stuff to Cincinnati Enquirer when public opinion was forming they were being turned down by candidates. Cincy Jungle is just reporting what Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
  27. Marvin Fired - 12/31/2018

    Aaron Glen would have been a good choice. Too bad he’s blocked. Still rooting for Marquand Manuel. But again Taylor impressed several teams with his preparation for interviews. Maybe Del Rio took it for granted?
