    Even if he had the rock he would likely wish for better creamed corn or maybe TJ's Grandma....doubtful he would wish for anything football related.

    The Monolith speaks! Oh happy day! Blessed are we, who know not how hard it is to run an NFL franchise! BAM! Right oughta the gate. Whose fault is all this? Why, OURS of course! See? See how hard it is to run an NFL franchise? We gave you all what you wanted and it's been a fukking disaster! Maybe we should just buy tickets and STFU, right guys? "Bright and energetic" is how kindergarten teachers refer to particularly precocious children. Seriously, have you ever been referred to as "bright and energetic" in a performance review or any adult situation? What foundation? As Zim ranted about on the OITNB vid I posted earlier, what is this team's identity? It has none. Yeah, yeah, yeah, you "want" to win. In the same way I "want" to win the lotto. And I don't buy tickets. And you know what? So has every other team in the league!!! OK, not every team has drafted a young QB in the last two years, but the draft? FA? Every team does this! This is not an accomplishment, this is just the basics of your job! It's like describing your own success by starting with, "in the last two years, I have gotten out of bed, got dressed and driven to work many times." Just like last season. And the season before that. And the season before that. Etcetera, etcetera. And unless Mike has that magic wishing rock from Wonder Woman 1984 up his sleeve, 2021 will be the same too, because injuries happen every year and "missed opportunities" ought to be the team's motto. Why should we expect the same players and coaches who have not been able to stay healthy or not miss opportunities to change? Again, this is not an accomplishment! Lots and lots of people face adversity and put in hard work every single day all over the world. Good. So will every other team in the league. Again, this is not a strategy! This is what...every...team...does. Why? Why are you confident? What in the last 30 years of doing the same thing over and over and getting the same results has you convinced that this time, you really will kick that football, Mike (Charlie) Brown? Yes, and so must every other business concern in existence if they want to stay in existence. Except wait, you don't! You can field 50 random people pulled from the stands every week for 16 weeks and still be profitable because of NFL-wide TV revenue sharing! You don't have to do a gawd damned thing! Son of a beach, I think we've figured it all out! And if we don't we'll just update and re-issue this same statement again!

    Matt Miller gave them Rashwan Slater, the T from Northwestern at 3rd with Sewell 2nd in his latest mock. Said some scouts have Slater ahead of Sewell. They can win and still find a REALLY good T. They don't need to be 3rd. If not Slater, then the Texas OT (Corsi), There's 3 or 4 worthy of top 10-15 considedration.

    Browns up 28-0 in the first quarter. Collinsworth is in stunned disbelief, can somehow still talk with Tomlin’s nuts in his mouth.

    I knew Jim Turner would be taking a new job soon. But I was surprised today to see that he’s apparently already taken the job as leader of the U.S. Capital Building police force.

    Ha ha! Bullshit smokescreen from the owner, then obfuscation and inaction from Taylor. Ultimately very little substantive change seems to be happening. That defensive coordinator sucks. Fuck this organization. And Mike can shove his “you fans wanted it, so now you got it” attitude. Eat shit you fucking somehow still animated collection of liver spots and brylcreem. What an unfair thing to do to Joe Burrow. Get better quickly Joe and come back and save the whole fucking thing by yourself. That’s pretty much the whole plan.

    Yeah, in a perfect world Brown would hire a real GM and allow that GM to build a real professional FO but unfortunately that is really unreasonable to expect from the Brown family

    Joisey: no more injuries would be a very good thing, especially to our best players (like Higgins) I gonna root for the Bills in the playoffs....Buffalo is our NFL sister city in many ways... plus they've never won the big game I always like the team thats never won it, when a team who hasnt won it makes it to the Super Bowl

    Expert horse trader Mike traded for a lame horse. Mike doesn’t like trading. Too much work to assess the capability and health of someone else’s player.

    FYI: Even though both players opted out of the 2020 college football season, it appears as though Northwestern’s Rashawn Slater has at least entered the conversation as the OT1 of the 2021 NFL Draft class. Daniel Jeremiah, NFL Network’s top NFL Draft expert, dropped a pretty huge bomb on Twitter about his recent studies of the 2021 NFL Draft class on the offensive line. That positional versatility and strong tape certainly make many first-round projections for Slater make sense, but OT1 status over Sewell? DJ’s opinion here might be a little controversial for those who have dubbed Sewell as a “generational” type of prospect at the offensive tackle position, but it was Jeremiah who led the charge with Mekhi Becton as OT1 last year, and that has turned out to be one of the best and most accurate projections of the vaunted 2020 class at the tackle position.

    So this guy's better than Bullocks? Really? 2 dropped passes, a poor 4th down call/decision earlier, a missed FG - and Taylor wonders why he has so many one-score losses. This actually may turn out to be another one.

    CINCINNATI (Jan 15, 2021) — After finishing the 2021 season with a 4-11-1 record, the Cincinnati Bengals today fired second assistant equipment quality coach Hugh Jass. ”Jass was a nice guy but his insistence on heavily starching all the jock straps was a major impediment to victory,” said head coach Zac Taylor. “Next season everyone will have comfortable junk, and I think that’s the change that will get us to the playoffs.”

    What a fun win. We can still get Sewell assuming we stay true to form and are unable to handle prosperity. Must lose to the Texans next week. But we’ll worry about that then. Ben already sounded off this week, basically, I’ve got a contract that pays me 34 million next year so he’ll yes I’m playing. Pittsburgh is somewhat fucked.

    They are such a mouthy bunch. Glad to see Ebron go out of the game after dancing on the sideline last game and then JuJu fumbles making it 2 chokes in 2 weeks after his stupid Tik tok routine.

    BUF UH LOW BUF UH LOW :-) Mahomes recovery or lack thereof could determine the Bills fate. I'd honestly like a cleaner victory with a healthy Mahomes in, but I want the Bills to get into the Superbowl for one more chance at the big trophy goooooooooOOOOOOO small market teams!

    Top OL on Mike’s radar: 155 T Joe “Swingin’” Gates - league minimum 179 G Bill “Speedy” Bump - bag of peanuts 210 C Jim “Snappy” High - pays Mike $10 a day to play

    Greatest off-season plot line - every Steeler fan, employee, and teammate saying “it’s been great, see ya Ben,” and Ben saying, “I’ve got a contract for 19 million and I’m definitely playing!” Hopefully it will destroy that stupid franchise from within.

    Uninformed here. UK is in the SEC which the conference pays their position coaches among the highest in all of college football. UK position coach will range from $300K-$900K which is very competitive with the NFL. UK spent nearly 6 mil on its position coaches last year. In addition the current UK staff has had 2 assistants promoted off that staff to head coaching spots in college, one reaching a power 5 conference last year. AN SEC RB coach will average about $500K per year. It is speculated a NFL RB coach is around $400K It always possible he took less money to leave but I doubt it. Stoops is trying to get a top tier program so I don't think he's bringing scrubs in when he has the budget not to.

    In 2018 the Bengals were jumped for Ragnow, panicked and took Price anyway because the NEEDED a C, and the following pretty damn useful players were selected after Price in that draft in the remainder of the first round: Isaiah Wynn (!) T DJ Moore (WR) Hayden Hurst (TE) Calvin Ridley (WR) Lamar Jackson (QB) If Sewell is gone, I am not down with reaching for a T over higher ranked players.

    I don't think there's any value in dissecting the statement from the organization as though it has deep underlying meaning. It's generic filler spam like any organization spews, including the words getting lambasted here (e.g. "blame the fans"), and the only message that means anything in there is "Zac Taylor is returning". The rest is message board fodder and nothing else.

    This better be a make-or-break year for Taylor and that entire staff. I love how Brown basically blames the fans, "this is what you wanted 2 years ago." Typical. The fans simply have higher standards than the owner.

    Right. It means 3 is likely out of reach, so 4 or 5. Need to lose & have Houston win for 4. Otherwise 5 unless the Bengals come back (ha ha).

    Today is probably the last Bengal game for AJ. I hope he goes out with a big game against the Ravens like Boomer.

    I don't buy the #'s!! Fake News! Eh I won't lose sleep over a win or a loss, but the return on one of them is a bit better, provided they play well regardless, and don't go out on a super sour note. I also don't like the notion of Taylor and Co. getting too confident in who they have, if they win again. The DCB last-game win record is the Brown family's secret recipe I think.

    Bengals need shit everywhere. Pitts should be on their board too. It doesn't really matter where you take the tackle, WR, or pass rusher. None of it works well enough in 1 off season if you just fix 1 need. They need to hit on multiple needs through out the draft. Of course retain their FAs AND add FAs. When you look at it that way, you quit caring what position group they select first.

    I cannot wait for us to knock Baltimore out of the playoffs and cycle back to the 10th overall pick. Will just have to settle for (checks notes) this year's Willie Anderson at that exact spot...

    On the other hand , while some franchises cannot draft and develop WRs to save their lives (Pats, Ravens) - the bengals are generally REALLY good at it. The occasional miss, but by and large, they get players who actually help. Off the top of my head (in my relative lifetime): Early draft Hits: Collinsworth, Eddie Brown, Tim McGee, Carl Pickens, Darnay Scott, Chad J, AJ Green, Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins Early draft Misses: David Verser (picked ahead of Collinsworth), John Ross, Peter Warrick (injury related mostly) Later in draft major hits: TJ Housh, Sanu, Marvin Jones I mean, on balance, this team does pretty damn well with receiver draft picks. So, yeah, i get that it is frustrating, but it also is a position that for whatever reason this team scouts and develops well as opposed to...a LOT of the other positions. There's some comfortability there for me as a fan...

    We're not getting Sewell even if we pick 3rd. Let's win the game. Jags or Jets would take Sewell over Fields.

    If Sewell will be there at 3, I'd love to have him. I am not hellbent on it though like I was with Burrow. They can do a lot of good things that high including trade down. If Sewell will not be there at 3, then who cares? Win games.

    Pitt looked terrible. Good for Finley, he's a good sport and played well over-all. No idea where draft status is, but whatever always good to beat an 11-2 Pitt team with a bunch of back-ups.

    Fantasy advice? ( for a money league I am in) I'm gonna need 20 yards tonight to win ( and no fumbles). I have juju or boyd available to choose from. Twice this year JuJu had less than 20 yards in a game. Once 6 yards and once 19 yards. Boyd has gone below 20 once, but that was a game after burrow got hurt with Allen at qb (against the giants). Finley at qb for Cincy. Boyd had 62, 0, and 101 yards last year in Finley's three starts. The zero was against the raiders. The 101 was against the Steelers. Nightmare 1: I go with Juju, Steelers control game and run it a ton and game script it to other receivers and juju goes under 20 when I pick him. Nightmare 2: I go with Boyd, Finley is Finley, Steelers D line mauls bengals o line, and Boyd never really sees the ball, as happened a few weeks ago in giants game with Allen or last year once with Finley. Nightmare 2 more likely, right? I gotta go w/ Juju? It’s just 20 yards dammit. I shouldn’t be swearting it this much
