  3. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    Mike: “By god, Knute Rockne, that’s the stuff. Builds moral fiber!” /Falls asleep in Pride Mobility Jazzy Sport 2 Front-Wheel Drive Power Chair/
  4. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    All through my time in the Army and no matter where I went in the world, someone would always pop off with: "You're killing me smalls". Now I hear it from my kids and their buddies who have see the movie. That saying will live forever. COVID makes doing something like that a bit more cumbersome that it would have been previously, but they could limit the number of people. Bring them into PBS with a huge TV in the endzone and show a football movie of their liking. "Remember the Titans" "Rudy" "Waterboy" I could just see Mike Brown ruining that as well and selecting: "Knute Rockne, All American" from 1940. An instant classic featuring former President Ronald Reagan as "The Gipper". Give the first 100 kids a hoop and stick to play with on the field...
  5. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    My son had a catcher in little league who was a lot like that red headed kid in Sandlot. They had a lot of fun with that.
  6. Last week
  7. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    I remember taking the kids to watch “Sandlot” down at Great American Ballpark. It wasn’t because I had never seen the movie, or that it was such an awesome movie. It was that you could take the family to the ballpark to see a cool baseball movie. The kids loved it and the Reds made a bunch of money off of my family that night.

    Not surprising. Can I go ahead and call Tretter a buzzkill ??
  9. 1st Round Pick: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU

    Just for fun , re-watching the first half of the LSU/Oklahoma semi-final. The burrow kid looks pretty good at qb.
  10. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    Not only do I think Dalton would do well in Dallas, I would tell Dak and his 30+ million per year request to pound sand !! No way do I pay him that kind of coin.
  11. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    I never heard Skip Bayless singing the praises of Andy Dalton as a Bengal....I guess everyone gets better when they trade Stripes for a Star.
  12. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    I keep wondering about Warford as well, as he remains unsigned. I had heard that he had a knee injury at the end of last year and maybe teams are being cautious since they can't get their doctors to look at him yet. I also am curious the impact of signing him would have on trying to sign both AJ and Mixon to extensions ?? That being said, I still think Warford would bring a presence to the o-line that currently does not exist there. A pro-bowl level o-lineman, coming from a winning organization, having protected one of the best QB's in the league. I just think he would help both the line, as well as additional mentor-ship for Burrow from a line perspective. Who could do that from a veteran perspective from the line now ?? Hart ?? BWAAAAAHAAAAHAAAA !!! If this line gets Burrow killed, i'm going to be pissed.
  13. What About the Defense ??

    Agreed, Hubbard flies under the radar. And even further under the radar is Dunlap. We all know how great he is, but if you ask a fan of the jets or the raiders or any other random team, his name gets faint recognition. Watching Dunlap run down a ball carrier from behind and try to tomahawk the ball out with his 8-foot long arm is one of the simple joys of my life.
  14. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    IMHO, this offensive line is too dependant on young guys. Jonah Williams, 0 career starts Hakeem Adeneji, 0 career starts Michael Jordan, 9 career starts Billy Price, 18 career starts Fred Johnson, 1 career starts Or vets that have never had success. Bobby Hart Xavier Sua-Filo We need a Jason Peters or Larry Warford to provide an established veteren leader voice to provide stability.
  15. What About the Defense ??

    I think they have a chance to be top 15. Just a lot of young guys and new guys. No one talks much about Hubbard, who is in TJ Watt territory if he can bump his sack total up to 11-15.
  16. Earlier
  17. What About the Defense ??

    I think the 2 CB's are upgrades against the run and lateral moves in the passing game, so upgrade. Reader is going to unless Atkins, or vice versa. upgrade. Bell is the best tackling Safety we have had for a long while, upgrade. Like Army stated earlier, upgrade a all three levels on defense. That should help the offense out, when the defense can finally get the ball back to the offense on third down.
  18. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    It’s the dead part of the offseason anyhow. I miss the old, pre-rookie-cap days when we could look forward to annual contract fights and holdouts to fill the gap, but that’s progress, I guess. Has anyone seen whether they’re opening facilities this week? ETA apparently they are opening tomorrow.
  19. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    Boy, you know things are slow when you make posts to stir conversation and you get jokes about water heaters being better than Bobby Hart (which I happen to agree with)... "What do you think about the defense?"- I'm good "What about protecting Burrow?"- He's good "What about upgrading the roster?"- Yawn "Wonder if the season will go off?"- Maybe It's kind of funny and sad at the same time. Stupid COVID !!

    So apparently now they’re going to wear basically space helmets?
  21. “You can only look at your hot water heater for so long.” - Jim Turner What he meant to say was “you can only look at your hot water heater for so long (until you realize itwould give Bobby Hart a pretty good run for his money at the right tackle spot).”

    every day in every grade when the teacher called roll everyone laughed.
  23. 2021 NFL Draft

    oh shit, youre right, sorry
  24. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    I was going back and reading some things about Burrow from his senior season. #1 Because I was crazy bored this weekend. #2 Because I was looking for anything I may have missed or not given much thought to the first time I saw it. One thing that jumped back out at me, was the following: It makes me wonder how the Bengals are going to approach the protection they give to Burrow schematically ?? I would guess that what they did last year with Dalton and Finley would be a poor example of what they may do this season, but am interested. I can't help but wonder if this has gone into how they view the current batch of o-linemen that most of us are unhappy with. Kinda, sort of related is, how does the TE relate to that thought process as well ?? I've been kicking around the idea of upgrading the position with a trade for OJ Howard (sounds like he could be had cheap)... Something to discuss with nothing else going on.
  25. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?
