    I disagree with this. It’s a workplace situation. And this longtime, very loyal, employee is being demoted. It’s a very public demotion. I think common courtesy requires a little meeting to explain what the team is doing, what he needs to do going forward. It’s not 1955. Ultimately showing Dunlap the respect he deserves would serve the team as well because you don’t get this public dragging they’re getting right now.

    Heh, saw a few replays and I am def in the shots kicked at that end zone. The burrow color rush to the left of the goalposts being kicked at. here are some obs from being there: Waiting for my flight - a few quick additional thoughts : I was in the north end zone 11 rows off the field - so a new vantage point for me. The second and fourth quarters when bengals were on offense i had as close to burrow’s vantage point on throws as I will ever get, and, damn. I have zero idea how he sees some of the windows he sees. There were five or six passes that he threw that I had time to think “where in the hell is he throwing it” and each time he competed a ball. He may be a wizard. The one in particular that sticks out was the 23-yarder to Higgins in the 4th. He. Was. Not. Open. Just an unreal throw. a few other things: —-I really now fear that AJ is cooked. The play in the first quarter where burrow rolled away from pressure and waved AJ downfield was coming at me - the old AJ makes that play but I could immediately see when Burrow waved him to get deep and AJ planted to go that there was no burst. None. I hope that it is still coming back, but that was rough to watch live as close to it as I was. —-the two Mixon 3rd quarter TD came at my end zone - on the second of them, the run up the middle, it looked like Redmond did a really good job sealing off his man and giving Joe the hole. It was like the Red Sea parting from where I was. —-thought the holding call to negate the Boyd TD was weak. Especially because on series before that Dunlap was dragged down right in front of us and the damn ref and he swallowed the flag while Jax converted a long third down. They also replayed the Lawson personal foul flag in the stadium and that was a fucking joke of a call. If refs were simply competent we blow them out in the first half. —-it is weird watching burrow live. He’s so in control, so calm , I’ve never seen anything quite like it in cincy. At least not four games in to a career. He’s an absolute superstar coming. —-I didn’t see him really miss on any deep throws he should have connected on. The receivers are simply not open. Very little separation deep to connect on the ones yesterday. —-hell, not a fuckton of separation on a lot of the intermediate passes either. Burrow is so damn accurate. If this was Dalton...yeesh. that’s most of what is at the top of my head this AM.

    Lets see. 3-19-1. 1-12-1 in one score games. 1-8 In the AFC North. Worse coach in Bengals history. Has surpassed Dave. Only coach to lose a game. When his team don't punt. Was 55-0 now it's 55-1 thanks to Zac. Zac brought in Lou , Turner and Eason. All are failing big time. The team is split, players wanting out. Geno, Dunlap, Ross and AJ. Those are the ones who have made it known. Then how long before Burrow wants out? Joe's success has nothing to do with Zac. If Zac wants to be his coach. Cool take a demotion and be the QB coach. Zac is a good guy. But that don't mean he is a good coach. there is to much damage now for Zac to ever recover from. It's clear he has to go. Fire him turner and Lou lets simmons take over. Then at the end of the season. If Simmons can turn it around. Let him coach if not. Go get Bienemy or see if you can get Fickell to come coach. We all wanted Zac to succeed. He didn't a couple losses that is understandable. To be 1 and 3 for 8,12,19 that is bad coaching. Then something has to be done. If not what message does that give to the players and fans? Losing is acceptable not doing your job as player or coach is acceptable? Hell No! Enough is enough!

    No systematic, consistent focus on good LB's and SS's. Cutting corners and being cheap. It's a Mike Brown/Brown family thing. And by "being cheap" I mean not spending on certain positions, they don't spend $$ wisely. Sorry I know that's a tired statement.

    Taylor responds to fans: (also with a nice response by the author below it): https://www.yahoo.com/sports/zac-taylor-shares-message-bengals-130035721.html He can talk about "long term" all he wants, we don't care, some of these one-score losses need to start turning into wins, not next year, or the year after, but now. You can't just win 3 games in almost 2 seasons in this league and expect more patience after years of losing. As the author states, this year wasn't about contending, but showing some progress, glimpses of hope - I really haven't seen any, just a lot of inconsistent play and bad coaching. If Tobin is to blame, throw him in there too, doesn't matter, start winning some games, or get someone who demands it and doesn't excuse not doing it, and holds the front office accountable for providing him what he needs to succeed. Fans are fed-up with this franchise, they all deserve blame and accountability for it - players and coaches. Stop tolerating losing, just stop.

    Just a cameo, in and out, I thought the consensus in here was, once ML and AD left, this team was Superbowl bound! Looks like a 90s run again to me! This franchise died with Paul Brown! Enjoy!

    I can tell you all from being there Sunday that was as safe as I have felt in a public place since Covid started - much safer than going to a grocery store or for sure going to a restaurant. There was plenty of room between seats - rows even. Everyone wore masks (and if you let yours slip lots of stadium personnel with gentle reminders to put them back on), lots of space at concessions. And in Pro Shop. If you think you want to go, from a Covid safety standpoint, I gave it an "A".

    116/177 (65.5%), 1121 yards, 6.3 yards per attempt, 7 TDs (1 rushing), 2 INTs I might just track this week by week for a quick visualization of his progression. He was able to get the ball downfield a little bit today, and it was great to see.

    The fact 2 guys were in a position to annihilate him like that is what concerns me. 3 weeks in a row now of this, he is just getting pounded, it's going to add-up, these aren't just typical safe tackles, they're blind-sided hits as he's throwing or in the pocket, constantly.

    We got the call though. Any td is good, but Burrow got robbed of a td pass. He looks so good today, quite a contrast between he and Mayfield (who’s only true ability is getting anonymous sex in strip mall Olive Garden parking lot).

    Might be worth a look if they can sign him cheap and makes to their waiver position. Even if he's just a pass protection upgrade...kick the tires, put guys on notice., I don't know the full story on Spain, but he fell out of favor pretty quickly there, so who knows.

    Andy on prime time never fails to entertain. Opens with a pick six that the guy inexplicable drops. Ends two plays later with a near safety.

    The 3rd and 1 fullback plunge followed by missed field goal was where any remaining patience I have with Zach Taylor ended.

    I'm close to rooting for Taylor to lose-out and get that #1 p;ick, where they can maybe get a haul for Lawrence, or pick-up an additional top 2nd rounder at least and stay in the top 5. I fear they may actually beat the Browns' next week, especially if Baker is out.

    This ia what gets me about this team. You have a big lead. Yet Lou sits back in a pussy ass zone. Not attacking what so ever. 4 plays they score easy. Wheres your balls at Lou? There is no safe lead in this league especially when you are playing a soft coward ass zone.

    It's not a dick move. It could be a simple miscommunication. Or maybe it was designed to tick Dunlap off - because he's playing pretty nearly as shitty through this first four games as he did last year through the first eight before he decided to try.

    True. The conversation will quickly move to "Burrow can't win the big one" or some other generic flaw. See Lamar Jackson. He instantly turned Baltimore around and quite frankly I'm not sure they are much better than a wild card contender without him even this year. The real focus will be/should be getting Burrow as many supporting parts as quickly as possible so he can cement his talent into tangible post season accomplishments. Probably one of the reasons why I wish AJ Green isn't aging. I'd like to have one more post season run with AJ as a bengal and a solid contributor with Burrow. AJ Green within the first couple games you knew he was the real deal. Basically turned the Bengals around quickly. Burrow is that way too.

    His blocking grades have been quite good, actually. And the end zone fiasco yesterday was a definite minus - but he has been a receiving threat otherwise. He's not looking like a bust at this point, in any event. Maybe not worth a 2nd round pick, ever, but still not a bust. As for the rest of that, if you had told me Burrow would be a PFF grade near 80 four weeks in after the nightmare off-season and no real training camp, I would have been giddy. Still am.

    That's an interesting stat, considering who is #2 and #3 - 2 of the top 5 QB's in the league. That downfield passing game though is rough, 1 for 23 over 20 yards, no burners at WR, poor protection, probably not going to get a whole lot better this year, but one part of the passing game they need to work on. I don't see why Tate and/or Higgins can't pull-down more long balls, they don't have any burners, gotta take advantage of situations that allow big passing plays and connect.

    Pass INT should've been called there on AJ - another no-call. AJ comes off shaken-up.

    Not sure about AJ at this point. He's drawn the best coverage guy the last 2 games. The ball is being spread around. That being said there are 3 plays that completely change the conversation 1. Ref keeps the flag in his pocket. That's a game winning throw/catch by Burrow and Green and quite frankly people have a completely different view of the season at 1-1-1 2. AJ wide open against Chargers overthrown. Probably wins the game there too. 3. AJ caught the ball, ruled initially as a catch. Correctly overturned opening play against the Browns. A little better throw and that's a huge play. So we'll see how it plays out. I don't think other team's are going to keep their best coverage guy on Green IF he's not a threat and allowing Burrow to make hay with other targets. Burrow has two 300+ yard games without a big factor from Green. So it would not shock me that some in depth film room study shows coverage being rolled to AJ and he's seeing bracket and such.

    It's painfully clear. The major liabilities have once again showed up in this game. To start with Zac, Lou, Tuner, Golden, Eason, Hart and Fat Randy. All on full display. This is what you get when you have low budget staff let's not forget Duke and his stellar oline selections. Mike needs to pull his head out his ass. An pay and bring in a real staff. Not one of these coaches was being pursued by any other teams. We see why. Just terrible. We finally have a QB to build around. Yet what do they do? Surround him with a piss poor line and staff.

    After watching that play to gio. It's clear this oline is NOT being coached properly. How in the world does Johnson not know he has to seal that block. He stood there like he was clueless on what to do. Nice recovery there Tee after the drop. That's how you do it kids. Nice TD!

    Zac just sits there dumb as ever another oline screw up. Yet nothing from Zac! He shouldn't be allowed to come out after halftime.
