    Maybe it's unreasonable of me, but anything less than 4-0 against NYG, WAS, DAL, and HOU is going to piss me off.

    Holy sheep dip I've been ill of late (nothing serious, just annoying) and slept through this game. I missed what is likely THE signature game of 2020. damnit. anyway, on the question of locker room solidarity or lack thereof.......I present the following https://www.bengals.com/video/postgame-celebration-after-week-8-win-over-the-titans which tells me things are not as doom and gloom as some claim....not even close ...so... I (like every other nfl fan on the planet) am enamored of New Guy. Without him, we arent even in these close losses, and are probably 0-8 and mostly blown out. I get that, so I wont talk about him being a new man crush, because how could you be a Bengals fan and not absolutely freakin' L O V E this man? and thats not even including out-of-this-world freakish stuff like this: and I think Jeremy Rauch summarizes things well here (except: trade Ross, not Tate): https://twitter.com/FOX19Jeremy/status/1323027132285652997?ref_src=twsrc^tfw so, I want to speak of my new (and as always to keep this clear, perfectly heterosexual) man-crushes in no particular order of importance 1. Spain. OH MY GOD. Not even a single practice snap nor time with his teammates as he completed the necessary quarantine time, and he looked like a freakin pro bowler. I watched a lot of game film and he is just high fivin' and having a great time with his new teammates between plays, bring up everyone's energy level. I love love LOVE this (GIMME A) LINEMAN Fucking SIGN HIM NOW. Practice squad my ass. I want him signed N O W if not sooner. There should have been a contract waiting for him to sign in the locker room right after the game 2. Higgins. A great deal of Burrows success is because Higgins is producing bigtime. Without Higgins, honestly, is Burrows fully the amazing QB we are seeing? Yeah, other receivers not named Ross are contributing as well, but I wasnt expecting this 2nd rounder to contribute so much so soon. I dont think you were either. 3. Adenji and Johnson. They faced pro bowl defensive ends having started exactly 0 times before at their respective spots. They allowed no sacks. Was it always pretty? Heck no. Was it perfect? Absolutely not - earlier in this thread it is mentioned how Adenji allowed the most pressures of any Bengals OL this week. Of course, that PFF item fails to qualify this statement with the fact that this was his first start ever _AND_ he's a rookie _AND_ he allowed no sacks _AND_ while facing a pro bowl DE. I will bet he will get a rating no better than 50 from PFF this week but regardless his performance under the circumstances I see that as nothing short of incredible. I've already talked up Fred Johnson many many times, so I wont go into detail on his 0 sack work on his very first start ever at ORT 4. Auden Tate. Ok, he's not all that new, but its like he gets forgotten for weeks at a time, then he goes and has a game like this and its like he's brand new all over again.......like who the hell is this guy? Take a look at this: https://www.nfl.com/videos/6-foot-5-tate-extends-for-unbelievable-sideline-snag-on-third-down Auden should be a priority for an extension asap, using some of that cash the Dunlap trade freed up. so why oh why, you ask with good reason, isnt Billy Price on this list? Its because I've seen too many disappointments from this guy. He has as Black Widow once said 'too much red on his ledger". This game doesnt erase all that red, not even close, but its a mighty fine start towards getting back in the black and a question - where the hell is Josh Bynes? I know I have no way to measure his impact on getting the three rookies + Pratt up to speed, but it's like he's invisible on the field. Also his snap count seems to be on a downward curve.. related question: how are the four (I count Pratt) newbie linebackers doing, especially in coverage? I cant seem to get a handle on that Finally: throwing some love (and a virtual game ball) towards Stripes this week for going the extra mile for this win. question: do you need any incense or goat heads or whatever for 2 weeks from now? If so, lets get a gofundme going.

    I won't hold my breath for Willie, but it would be great and well-deserved. I'm looking forward to next season when Penei Sewell tears his achilles in week 3.

    I want to preface this by emphasizing that this is *just me* and my opinion/impression and it’s perfectly fine if it isn’t shared by anyone else. I think this coaching staff, or at least the top post-Marvin guys, is a bunch of assholes. Everything we hear about Turner and Anarumo is more or less about what level of dick they are. Meanwhile Taylor strikes me as more and more of a smug prick with each passing week. I can’t even watch the postgame interviews because I just get mad I can’t punch his increasingly punchable face. Again, just me. YMMV.

    I love how the Steelers hold guys up and strip at the ball. The very second your team does the same.....whistle blew. There was probably a handful of times progress had been stopped by a Bengal ball carrier and they strip at it. If the ball would have come out, I"m sure there wouldn't be any whistle. Crazy how fast the whistle is on the opposite side. Then it's been all season Burrow simply isn't protected by the Refs AND Zac Taylor needs to start bitching about it game week and post game. Even if he has to take a couple fines. There's been several late hits not called on Burrow. Holding simply isn't called on the Steelers o-line either. Keep in mind this is not to say the Bengals could have or should have won. No they are a better team AND OUR defenders have a chance to intercept balls or sack a QB and they don't. Just annoying on top of the loss.

    I’ve already begun fashioning a doll in the form of TJ Watt with hair from the shower drain. At the stroke of midnight on the eve of the game I will cut my palm, dampen it with my dark blood, and cast it into the flames.

    Damn, what a game, what a win. So great to be able to just sit and watch your team play a great game and win. Most people probably take that for granted, but you all know we don’t. I ate two ham sandwiches during the game then hammered down a bowl of Lucky Charms to celebrate the win.

    Good watch. It's hard to say if anything Dad Dunlap passed on via Carlos is especially one-sided in the controversy. If Anarumo isn't at least listening to his veterans though and actively working to make them feel heard and their feedback respected (even if not implemented), that doesn't strike me as a great reflection on him.

    I’m sure he is motivated now and will finish out the year strong in Seattle, always liked Dunlap and sucks he left like this.

    Thanks for the fish, Carlos. That was not a good ending, but I’ll remember the good times. Probably a top 7ish all-time Bengals defender.

    More than I’d have expected, frankly. Seems like good thinking considering Seattle’s pass rush issues. Will have to see how Seattle fans feel about the OL.

    Nobody is going to work harder to get through the rehab efficiently than Joe Burrow, so I'm going to trust he'll do everything he can do. The injury happened, so there's nothing else to be said about that. Every ounce of the 4% of my sports attention that I pay to the Bengals for the time being will be on how they prepare for his return -- whenever it is. Penei Sewell? Great. Go lose out. Don't you dare fucking win a game. Finish 3rd overall and he's probably yours. Perhaps more importantly, I want to see an offense developing that doesn't send the QB out with nobody in the backfield constantly against great pass-rushing defenses. Even teams with decent offensive lines think twice before doing that shit.

    Just draft another franchise QB and alternate them on IR each year when one gets hurt behind the terrible o-line. Who else has thought of that? That way you always have a franchise QB if one gets hurt. So what if half your cap $$ goes to QB's, at least you won't have to watch Finley every season.

    Yeah, I think this year's FA market looks good for guards but are they really going to dump $10 mil of cap space or more into one? I doubt it. I'm also skeptical of the improvement you actually would get from FA vet tackle. I'm leaning towards drafting the best tackle in the draft and hope it works out and the guy doesn't need a long ramp up time to get going.

    Two teams. Both with franchise saviors sitting at home with torn ACLs. Seriously don’t care if we win. If there’s hope for the #1 pick, go ahead with tank 2.0, get a haul of picks for the Lawrence pick, use them to scratch and claw to a .475 win percentage, expand the whole Bengals’ operation so that anyone with even 12% or more of Mike’s DNA has a job here. Great success!

    Burrow was going to set pretty much every rookie passing record. We live in a cold, uncaring, universe.

    Vol - there is one emotional leader, and it’s Burrow. Won’t do us much good the rest of this year. Fucked over by the universe again. It never ends with this fucking outfit. I just hope there are enough front office jobs for all Mike’s grandchildren here in the next few years.

    It’s bad enough they know surgery is necessary and they won’t know how bad until they get in there to fix.

    Assuming it is a normal ACL and timeframe, then Penni Sewell is now in range - because they won't win a game with Finlet at QB and should be picking top 3.

    Since when did those other guys want out? Never once did Bates say he wants out in fact he just talking about winning for Zac. Never once did Green say he wanted out, man quit believing everything you hear, when you have no clue if it's true. I don't like Zac either, but let's not act like every player wants out

    The bias by the refs whenever we play the Rapistburgers is beyond obvious year after year after year. We're going to have to play twice as well as them to ever overcome that disadvantage and win, and right now, we're not even close to playing that well. Even on a mistake free game After he left New Guy in when it was obvious the game was a blowout, Taylor is now hated by me. He can leave town now for all I care. I understand the losses, but leaving New Guy in to get injured is an unforgivable and fire-able offense imo

    That's what I've been saying. The roughing on Sam then the pi on us. I said if that was the other way it don't get called. The sack before halftime was helmet to helmet . jj came came down on Joes head no to mention it was also a horse collar. They showed it clear as day before halftime. No call. Its nothing new. Its has happened for years. When you suck the refs think its a mistake by you. More than a foul from the other team.

    no issue with that. they looked weak against Dallas, tho still, this season isnt about winning.....its about 1. Keeping New Guy out of the hospital or morgue, and 2. getting game experience for New Guy and certain other starters like Williams, Fred, Adeniji, and the newbie LBs

    Jesus Christ, why would they let ZT go? His ONE job his year was developing Burrow. That is fucking happening. And the offense is cranking. I get that all is shit generally, but what in the world would firing ZT at this point accomplish?

    Why put him on the trade block after demoting him, and decrease his value? How do they have anyone better at DE? Just more evidence Taylor is not equipped to handle the position he's in at this level. This is one of, if not thee, toughest jobs in the NFL. He has no history of success anywhere as a major contributor to anything. He can't attract staff or have any leverage with the incompetent Brown family. I feel sorry for the vets who are good on this team, what a miserable situation to be in for the last 4-5 seasons. Just awful, with no hope of it getting better any time soon. Burrow never looks happy, short answers, trying to play the part. It's sad. Just fire Taylor and Turner already, and promote someone as interim. The Jags suck and so do the Eagles, their only non-losses. This team could lose to the Jets. You can't just win 3 games out of the last 24 and say "oh we'll turn it around some day." I'm done with Taylor.
