    This upcoming game genuinely worries me - feels like a trap game where they might accidentally win.

    Mike deserves the ignominy that would accompany an 0-16 season. His stubborn refusal to change is at the heart of it all.

    Mark me down for 45-3. To be clear, we will be supplying the ass, not the kicking

    I think they are bad, but once they start trading away assets and playing players just because they are young; that’s tanking, IMO. Seems like a lot of fans want that now. So do I. Keep in mind that’s a miserable experience with no guarantee they surpass the Marvin days. Cleveland won 4 games in 3 seasons and cycled through so many names it seems like a decade ago.

    The ONLY thing that would interest me at this point is for them to do this right - and sell off Green, Dalton, Atkins, Dunlap, Dre and WJIII and bring back a bevy of picks and re-boot this thing. That would be interesting and potentially a way forward. But I know they won't even do that.

    i was going to put in my 2 cents worth, but i just can;t be bothered. maybe it's the Friday night beers, maybe I just need the count to 9 before I get off the canvas, but thus far i am feeling (i don't really know what I'm feeling tbh)

    Yes, Brown Family, your fans are detailing draft prospects 4 games into the season. I’d like them to get Tua. What they’ll do to protect him once he’s here, I have no idea. If the words “Andre Smith” are involved, Tua should just stay in school for another year.

    PFF released o-line rankings following week 3 games. I know what you’re thinking, “we’re last.” WRONG! second to last. Dolphins are last.

    All the Bengals need is 5 new linemen, 3 new linebackers, 1 new corner, 1 new tight end, and we’ll be fine. Almost there.

    self inflicted is right they are at least aware of the issue now, 2-3 years too late.......using a 2 1's in the last couple years has at least indicated awareness, but its been much too little and much too late incidentally - the two other Centers that we were looking at when we took Price? Ragnow is already approaching pro bowl level, and Daniels, after a solid year as a started OG, is now the starter at OC for the Bears

    Drew Sample isn’t playing more snaps because they aren’t running the ball because the push from the line is so poor. The o-line has been overmatched the entire season except for an opening drive against Arizona. The TE group as a whole is losing snaps to Gio, Tate, and Erickson because they stand a better chance beating those match ups vs running the ball into the backs of linemen. The tackle taken after Sample has been grading out at the same level as Hart so there’s no miss there. There is no magic bullet. The line sucked two years in a row and every upgrade has failed or yet to materialize. The guy plays a level of snaps consistent with the frequency of the number running plays called. We see a lot of 3 WR sets to get a defender out of the box. 2 TE sets with them in line just adds defenders to the box and they can’t win blocking 6 and 7 man fronts. It doesn’t appear he’s failed to compete for a job.

    There was concern with this line when we thought they had Williams, Glenn, Boling, and Price. 3 of those haven’t played and Price has struggled earning a starting gig. They couldn’t run block in the preseason. Their suck has sabotaged any way to judge anything offensive.

    Agreed, let's keep that worst-case-scenario in the top 5, anything beyond that is more of the same IMO (i.e. ""With the 7th pick in the draft, the Bengals' select Andre Smith, Offensive Tackle, Alabama," "with the 6th pick in the draft, the Bengals' select Cedric Obegui, Offensive Tackle, Texas A&M" "The Bengals' select Billy Price," "The Bengals' select John Ross" etc..., ). I want to limit the chance for error as much as humanly possible with this franchise, they are borderline incompetent when it comes to drafting and scouting, and always have been (squirrel finds nut every so often, or for a couple of good years once in a while though).

    Might be the worst defense in Bengals' history, I'm trying to think of one that's actually worse than this one. I have no idea how all of a sudden guys like Jackson and Bates suck either. Maybe we shouldn't be surprised when they just decided to re-sign Brown and do little else, and Taylor had to pick-up a coordinator off the scrap heap at the last minute.

    Nice KO return TD to start our "offense". Clockwork though: Jackson torched the Bengals on a scramble on their first play.

    It isn't the draft day decisions. That is on the coaching staff and scouting Dept. Here is where the Browns' fail running this organization IMHO. 1) they continue to go cheap paying front office personnel. They have half the number of scouts compared to league avg and a quarter of scouts than Dallas as an example. Also, they refuse to pay the front office personnel that exemplary salary that is due them, so they leave and are replaced at lower competency. 2) no creativity. Other team can look at free agency and move proactively to fill roster holes. Say what you want about the price they paid but Houston saw that their oline was going to hold them back and made the move to fix it with Tunsil. Likewise Minkah Fitzpatrick for the Steelers. Also on draft day the Bengals have consistently shown no creativity in the early rounds to Target a guy they need and go and get them. 3) lastly, they refuse to properly evaluate their team, they hold on the washed up players yet maddening let some players that still have gas in their tanks leave (Zeitler and Whitworth as good examples). This shit will never change as long as the Brown family refuses to step away from football decisions.

    Dude, don’t be down. With Ross and Green out, we’ll get to watch Andy try to throw within the .5 second of protection he’ll get to Tyler Boyd who’ll be dealing with quadruple coverage. Should be fun!

    That's kind of my point in regards to what happens after Mike Brown passes. We all know how that story is going to end. I use to have faith that things would change at that point, but it HAS been years since Katie has taken on a large role and it's the same old, same old. If those "hard core" fans still want to believe in the "Give it some time", "You have to let this play out", I won't blame them. Seriously. I've simply invested too many years of my time in spewing those same lines as a "hard core" fan and no longer care to wait any longer. I've moved on to the realization that more than likely it won't improve and YES, YES, YES, it's the Brown family's fault. It's always been their fault. No need to try to convince me otherwise either. I'm told old to change my mind. I'm still looking forward to the day the lease is up. Nothing would please me more at this point than to see them pack this shit show up and leave.

    I’m sick of always waiting. I don’t have that much more energy to devote. Bottom line for me is that I know how this story ends and I choose to not indulge most of the time anymore. The Brown Family is a perpetual exercise in the hope of catching lightning. I simply can’t give my time and money to that anymore. Color me fair-weathered...

    The defense is vastly improved over what we saw last year, at least so far (which is striking since it still hasn't been good this year).

    Nobody knows how he will be, but after these first few games, I’m not sure I’m all that impressed. Not even just him it’s with every coach. The defense is always confused, guys are always wide open with busted assignments, the d-line has not been the same as week 1. The offense since week 1 has looked awful, they are so hard to watch, I see no hope in that group at all. I still believe that Zac would have been better off adding some good veteran coaches to help him out. Marvin was best when he had veteran guys around, those years to me were so fun to watch, they got the best out of there guys and it showed. Im hoping the best for Zac and hopefully things change and they figure things out.

    What a great night !! Watched a little less than a half of the game while having some drinks, decided to keep drinking but switch to Gears of War 5 with my son, and killed a shit ton of badass aliens with weapons I could only have dreamt of having in Afghanistan. Overall, it was a real winner of a evening. No o-line and no linebackers worth a shit. Nope, didn’t see that coming did we ??

    Ready to be driven nuts by the worst crew in the game. I don't even think Booger McFarland is the worst of them. Tessitore annoys the absolute shit out of me for reasons I would struggle to articulate. It's like every word he utters is infused with DRAMA and STORYLINES, and I just want him to shut the hell up. I'm okay. I'm good.

    I laughed. Also, I kinda think he's indeed not rushing back, at all, due to contract uncertainty.

    We should all be accustomed to seeing those types of hits from Burfict. While I love tough nosed, hard hitting football, the NFL just isn't going to tolerate going much above that. Burfict has a habit of going MUCH above that. Not shocked... Regarding tonight's game, I thought it was yesterday as I typically blow off this matchup. I might actually watch a little bit of the game since that's the case. Thank God I have some cold adults beverages at the house. Something tells me I might need it !!!

    Makes me more impressed with Zac and Defense. Woefully undermanned on the line vs the front 7s they’ve had to face. Had chance to win in the 4th quarter in 2 games. Hopkins establishing himself and actually improving upon last year’s stint as a starter due to injury is one good sign in an otherwise pile of crap. Goes without saying they need another young player to do the same at another spot.

    That was partial luck that Marvin came in while holding the #1 pick. Taylor was handed the #11 pick with too many holes to fill. If not that, maybe they didn't care for any of the QB prospects. I hated Dwayne Haskins as an NFL QB even though I love my Buckeyes. Palmer was an easy choice for Marvin and the Bengals and I don't think they had many options outside of going with Dalton, who wouldn't cost them a ton this season. Completely ignoring the LB corps and partially ignoring the o-line was a huge mistake on their part and there wasn't a single person here who wasn't calling for just that. We got a first round pick who got hurt, Bobby Hart (yuck), and that dude that wasn't good enough to make Buffalo's terrible o-line. For linebackers we got the rookie Pratt, who wasn't even on my radar. Oh, can't forget the Drew Sample pick either.

    I'm still trying to keep remembering my expectations for this year. I thought this was a losing season, but still interested in seeing what the new coach does. In all honesty, I should be very happy. They are who I thought they were and I haven't seen some of the stupid coaching I had grown accustomed to with Melvin. There is obviously a change of philosophy as well in that we've seen 3rd round picks getting cut on both sides of the ball and an apparent willingness to go with the young guys in some instances. Jefferson, Malone and Core are all gone. Auden Tate led all receivers in yesterday's game and UDFA (Willis) has been playing since week 1. There was at least an effort to improve the o-line and an injury will delay that progression for the whole season. While I don't think they did enough to address the needs of the team in the offseason (I'm looking at the LB's and o-line), there was at least some effort. My thoughts after 3 games is they really should start the move in a new direction. If that means getting rid of some high priced guys, then do that and start over. Honestly though, that would begin and end with one Mr. Dalton. While always liking him and not hating like most, even I can acknowledge that it's just time. Don't sink more money into him. Just move on and see what you have in Finley and then decide if it needs to be addressed in the draft. If it does, don't fuck around and go get your guy.

    I think it’s pretty clear they tried to improve the line but have massively struck out. A lot of the moves made for the line were done in the short term to extend the possibility of Marvin winning a playoff game. Today any young player showing promise only digs them out of that hole faster. Fans aren’t going to see a plan when the team is losing.

    Things I'd like to see this week: (I'm setting the bar high this week) The RBs rampaging for 30 yards.... Maybe one open field tackle by a LB.... Dre KirkPatrick keeping his penalties to under 100 yards.... Randy Bullock hunted down by a rogue band of Japanese Whale hunters.....

    Going to be hard to open the offense when you can’t run at all. A lot of pressure on Dalton and he didn’t have a good game at all. I’m not even sweating this year, expectations are 0. Just see what they look like week to week.
