    Bates coming into the second half of 2021 said he had been pressing a bit in thinking about his contract. He knew then THAT was his biggest concern and had to find the "Old Jessie" because he wasn't playing well. Is more money going to help him find that dude during the regular season ?? Is being paid all that money going to now have him pressing to prove he deserved his contract ?? Who knows, but I'm not pleased with him in this instance. Have some balls, bet on yourself for the year which makes you the 10th highest paid safety in the league, and then cash in on the open market in 2023 because you know the Bengals aren't bringing you back at that asking price. Stop asking the Bengals to pay you top 3 money when they aren't going to do it. More importantly, and I think the Bengals know this, they SHOULDN'T do it. Yes, there are TV contracts. Yes, the cap will continue to go up. However, it's not going to go up so much to allow a top end contract for a safety when Burrow and Chase are looming in the near future. I had a conversation in the bar the other day and was chatting with a guy bitching about the Bengals and Mike Brown being cheap. I asked him how much he liked Burrow and Chase and he blew their contracts off like it was nothing to worry about. Here's a question... How close are Burrow and Chase going to get to Aaron Rodgers and Devante Adams respectively ?? Rodgers gets 50 million per year and Adams gets 28 million per year. So that's 78 million total for those two, and yes I know they aren't on the same team. This when teams are capped at 208 million for everyone or nearly 38% of the total cap allowed. Pay Bates that 18 million per year and now 3 players take up nearly half of the teams cap space. Thinking longer term, and knowing how the Bengals planned for this, I say goodbye to Bates and work a trade for 2023 picks. I will wish him the best of luck and thank him for his time here. Now get the fuck out, I have other things to attend to.

    Thanks for quoting this one RBB, I had missed it. Agree that putting the Browns at #1 projection wise is just silly. At this point, I think it's just as reasonable to say Kenny Pickett balls out for the Stealers, when considering Watson is going to miss "some" games. As much as I was rooting for Watson to shun the Browns, the only thing that would make me happier would be for him to get suspended many games. Let me give this a try... Bengals: 99.7% Ravens: 00.2% Browns: 00.05% Steelers: 00.05%

    4 of the top 10 all time Bengal sackers were drafted under Marvin. Atkins, Dunlap, Geathers, MJ. Hubbard, Peko and Lawson are in the top 20. So 7 of the franchise's top 20 sack leaders were added under Marvin. Marvin's fault was big game performance. He was the most successful regular season coach and a lot of that success were Zimmer defenses that were among the franchise's best units. Taylor is too early. But Wyche and Gregg were shooting stars that burnt out quickly.

    I’ve noticed the Bengals drafted players very high on the RAS (raw athletic score) this year. Even Volson was very high percentile. Players in the past like Jordan and other OL didn’t grade high. Also, the thing with Volson is that his athletic skills are good for a guard. Not a tackle. Overall the Bengals has the 5th highest draft in terms of RAS.

    I believe the young girl in that story and will assume Carman is a dirtbag from here out. He will never have a day in court and neither will that young girl. People can think what they like one way or the other.

    I guess they are not worried about WR or DL. Still hoping a bearcat like Curtis brooks or Darren Beavers ends up with the bengals but looks like that’s not happening. No WRs this draft. My only big complaint is not adding to that room, specifically return skills guy

    Basically, she waited too long to report it or tell anyone. That’s a tough hurdle to overcome, though his texts, actions, etc, fit with her story. What they don’t have is an admission from him. Once she waited so long to report it, the evidence is reduced to her word against his. And with the standard of proof being beyond a reasonable doubt, it’s a very difficult case to contemplate prosecuting.

    I know, shocker here: I love the pick *GASP TJ actually loves a first round pick. that NEVER EVER EVER NEVER EVER happens* Great value.....arguably a top15 pick in terms of ability Like Mem says, we use 3 safeties quite a bit.....so he will get a lot of snaps as a backup immediately Also (sadly) a position of need due to Bates pretty much saying he wants out without actually saying "I want out". Or at least thats my guess. Love Bates, but he (every player) needs to understand that to have a great team we have to be able to pay multiple great players, not just one. ah well. and.....a defensive back with speed - thank you, football gods! speed, productivity, football IQ, intangibles......GIMME Would I have rather had a 3TDT? Yes Would I have rather had a speedy outside corner? Also yes But this is still a great, great pick But no, I didnt stay up to watch. too damn late. https://twitter.com/MathBomb/status/1504882828424613888

    Holy shit, I didn’t think there was really a chance of him being there. So fucking pumped up and keeps us from having to pay Bates a fuckload of cash. Really happy with this pick. WHODEY !!!

    Geno is still my dog. Loved watching him all those years, blowing up the middle of the o-line. Dude was a pro and just went about his business without having much to say about any of it. Wish he was part of this team now.

    I blame Modell moving the team. Major League and Draft Day movies for the Cleveland love. National media love them some Cleveland hype. Eventually they will break through and win a division title but it has not happened since 1989 season. Think of all those predictions gone wrong.

    Can anyone think of the last time there was a player who held out and then went on to progress in their playing performance? I can’t think of one. Neither someone who was traded or eventually played with their team. Hold outs are a reflection of scarcity mentality. I got to get mine. I don’t oppose getting your worth. But your play and attitude will get you that. It may not be exactly when you want it. But you will get it. Bates is rushing to the finish line and it will be his downfall.

    Bates is plenty smart enough to get it - that a player taking extra cap dollars is hurting his team - so he is choosing to hurt the team I completely and utterly get it that he like any employee has the right to try to get paid his or her full value, but the cap and the fact that only one "company" (team) wins changes the dynamic Capped salary for the team means that in essence all employees are capped as well, at least, if that company wishes to succeed, because the company needs more than one good employee to succeed, which means they need money to pay these other good employees as well I know he knows this so him choosing to demand more money is absolutely him choosing himself over team selfish he went from being a team leader to this me me me guy in one offseason sad, really I love Bates for what he has done for us. He's been wonderful. I wont forget that. But this now.....he's throwing it all away for an extra 2-3 M If it was me or you, we'd claw and scrape for 2-3M, but we dont have the benefit of already having 12M like he does, plus all his many millions earned before this. 12M is plenty enough for anyone for one year. Get real, Bates

    Again, I agree with them still having issues which they need to address. I think it's kind of amusing personally. Strictly speaking of the players, we will get a first hand look at how some of them do. Browns: WR David Bell was once an end of the 1st, middle of the 2nd and he dropped to the 3rd. DT Perrion Winfrey will be interesting since he fell and we still passed on him. And that's it for the Browns. The others are not that interesting to me. Steelers: QB Kenny Pickett will be fun to watch even though he's a Steeler. I think he's their starter. WR George Pickens is a top end talent with a 2 cent head. If he's on meds, he will be a good one for them. DT DeMarvin Leal was another DT that I really liked in the draft as well. WR Calvin Austin is even an interesting pick that will grow with Pickett. Ravens: S Kyle Hamilton falling to #14 because of a slow 40 time is crazy to me. Didn't want him in Baltimore. C Tyler Linderbaum will be interesting to watch as well due to the amount of conversation here. DE David Ojabo was also a top half of the 1st talent. When he gets healthy, that's a good pick. DT Travis Jones was part of a couple conversations here as well. They also took RT Faalele and even though I didn't want him, we will be seeing him play. Two decent TE prospects in Kolar and Likely should be decent as well for them. All of that said, yes, they still have issues, but they are no different in that cut downs are coming, trades can still happen and who knows?

    AWESOME !!! The Bad News Reds !!! So the die hard fans that still find it in their hearts to show up and support, get treated to that ?? Something tells me they will find something better to do in the near future. Hear that Castellini ?? That's the sound of fans weed eating and edging their driveway instead of watching the Reds. Something tells me, they will be better off for it.

    Aside from Bates, I like this situation. Resign Bell and Pratt, possibly Hurst. This next offseason is definitely ideal.

    They did well. Bates is clearly gone after this year unless we decide to tag him again - very unlikely. Apple is old and though he played ok last year, his performance the previous couple seasons was discouraging. The fact that they even signed him and planned significant minutes for him is a good indicator of how badly we need DBs. I’m not criticizing the FO on this because keeping all the position groups up to snuff all the time is impossible. But we were absolutely in a hole when it came to DBs. Same as OL. They free agented the OL, now they’re drafting their way out of the DB hole. And it’s smart. DBs can get up to speed and be at least competent quicker than O linemen. I think the FO addressed these two positions of need correctly, and I’m very happy with the first two picks. Later rounds they got character guys who have played a lot of football. So smart, and so different from dumb ass Marvin. I give this draft an A-.

    So Britt can return punts, and along with Hill, excel at blitzing and run support also. Just seems like a solid pick to me, even after drafting Hill. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUn9-lAI2Po

    I think it was a good draft. My saying Volson may now be my second favorite pick doesn't mean I think it was a bad draft.
