    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.

    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.

    That would work for sure. Very tempting if that would materialize. It gives them 7 top 150 picks. If they are having a good draft that fills some holes for sure. 12, 37,44, 69,106, 113, 145 Edit: They should have Tim Krumrie call pick 69.

    so we do actually think alike....errrrr.....sometimes :-) I've made basically that same trade on PFF but I generally score a 1 or a 2 in the 2022 draft as a part of thepackage

    The skinner piece left me kinda like hanging my mouth open. The "dont take an OL in r1" part of it almost translates to "if the Bengals take a OL in r1, said OL will for that reason only suck in the NFL" Which to flip the coin means said same OL will do well as long as some OTHER team drafts him so......uhm.....yeah, you do you, Skinny all that aside, I have been a fan of the tradedown since the beginning, since we need more than one player to turn this ship around

    I watched with one eye yesterday, I’ll watch today though, as long as the games are competitive. By far, I find myself rooting for the AFC teams. Bills would be an amazingly fun champion. Chiefs are a blast to watch with Mahomes running things, I also like Andy Reid. I’ll even root for the Ravens, Jackson is a freak, and I respect their coach. Titans are even interesting with their bone-crushing run game. The other side of the coin - Like most of us I despise the Steelers. The Most interesting thing about the Browns is that their QBs unlikeable personality is able to shine through even in a 30 second progressive ad. He can make a 30 second ad feel like it’s taking 5 minutes to get through. And compared to the AFC teams, what a dreary lineup the NFC has put forth this year. The Saints - we’ve seen it all before. And Brees can’t really throw any more. The WFT, their appearance is just the manifestation of a whole division’s utter failure. The Rams, I love Whit but their game yesterday was not fun to watch. Their system is dull. The Seahawks, again it just seems stale. We’ve seen it all before. All I can ever think about with them is that stupid call Pete Carroll made that lost them the the super bowl. It’s depressing. Finally the Bucs - how much HGH is Brady taking? He looks younger than he did 12 years ago, and his times on running events they do at the combine are better now in his 40s than they were when he was 22 and actually at the combine! Can’t root for or enjoy Brady, he cheats every chance he gets, then destroys the evidence and puts on that fake smile. Can’t stand this dude. Finally the Bears. Oh, they’re in the playoffs? I’d barely noticed.

    That's what I hope/think most is likely. But there is a scenario where Miami stays put and takes Chase and Atlanta who talking about wanting to re-commit to the run and might want Sewell. That's the nightmare where the Dolphins and ATL don't trade back... I guess in that case trading back from 5 as the 3rd QB would be on the board and that would be good, but...you know how we are in trade back...
  31. 1 point
    I found one mock where they were both gone by 4. It made me sad, and that is the scenario where I promise you we reach and fuck something up. If both are gone, that should be an automatic trade back to a team that wants the 3rd QB on the board...but I don't know that we are nimble enough to do the obvious.

    LouA isn't leaving, and Joe Goodberry and other sharps at PFF etc really hate idea of taking a LB in top 5. Like taking a RB that high at this point. I think Parsons only in play IF they trade back to around 10 or so, fwiw.

    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.

    I also highly doubt Herbert looks so competent on this roster. Long-term I am quite confident we landed the better quarterback. It remains to be seen whether we'll manage the better football team.

    I can't agree with that, Wraith, at least not entirely There's a guy on our team, a new guy, who had his knee shredded and is currently undergoing rehab work that will probably last for at least the next 9 months, maybe longer He is in my opinion the single most important player on this team (and eventually will be the highest paid one) and ergo it is of the utmost importance to protect this New Guy far far FAR better than we did in 2020. This means making the OLine far stronger than it was in 2020. Both for now and for the next decade or so As such, I am certain need comes before BPA in this draft, at least early on.

    Gang, if they finish the job here then this prevented them from going two entire seasons without winning on the road. That would have been truly '90s Bengals or '00s Lions or '10s Browns level terrible. I'm glad to stop that.

    I do think Turner should be the first to go, but his relationship with Taylor has always seemed strong beyond just familiarity -- they tend to be in lockstep in evaluating the offensive line, even when everyone else holds the opposite views. Anarumo might not enjoy the same support. As Hoosier's irony suggests though: it might not be any of the three. Hell, it might not be anyone.

    One thing I can't figure out.....sure, Rapistburger looked old/tired/beat-up-and-hungover-COB-like, but.......what about their defensive front seven against our OLine? Game stats says they only got 2 sacks on a quarterback who according to my eyes is sacked more often than he completes passes I didnt get to watch the game, so what the hell, fellas? Tell me about the OLine and yeah, I know he ran 10 times for 47, but one of those runs was for like 20 yards for a TD, so the rest of the time he wasnt all that effective as a runner .....also..... I pray to god that this result doesnt save Zac's job. He needs to depart yesterday .....also also..... I did watch the highlights on nfl.com. Just from that, it looks like Lawson had an absolutely tremendous game. Got to start re-upping him N O W.

    He was not good, but, and this is important, we also actually covered the receivers and made him have to make throws into tight windows. Phillips, WJIII, Alexander, Bell and Bates all balled out.

    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
