    *movie trailer voice* In a world where the Cincinnati Bengals successfully cover the tight end

    There is a very good reason for that. Dalton’s performance in games other fans might have seen, like nationally televised games and playoff games, was absolutely, almost unbelievably, horrible. It was hard to believe the same guy we’d watch carve up Baltimore in a regular season game, could play as badly as he did in nationally televised games. Again, and again, and again.

    I logged back in today to make this comment and will step back away... I believe in the philosophy that "If you don't have a franchise QB, you try to get one". Well.... That is exactly where we find ourselves and sitting at the #1 spot allows us to take the best shot. Take it. Don't be a pussy. Make the selection and move forward. The rookie wage scale makes it possible to swing and miss without it crushing the franchise for the next 7 years. A true franchise QB can make everything else around them better, so if they swing and hit, the payoff is massive. Someone can argue all they want about whether Joe Burrow is the best QB in the draft, but i'm not that guy. I believe him to be the clear #1 QB in the class and fully deserving of being the Bengals pick at #1. Just take Burrow and move on to addressing how the organization can actually use free agency to help build around him. Also cannot forget having the top pick in the other rounds as well. USE THEM WISELY. That being said, much like the last Bengals related post I made, I still do not believe they care enough. For that reason I have not given much thought to anything they have done and won't until closer to the draft. Will it to happen Mem. I'm with you. WILL THAT SHIT !!! Later...

    "When the time comes, I'll be in the best shape to play my best ball this year no matter what happens. The best shape of my life." I like how he emphasized, "The best shape of my life". I'm really looking forward to watching this team play this season unlike any season I can remember is a God awful amount of time. I wish Billy was here to enjoy this with us !!!

    So again, if the knock on Higgins is his speed, lets make a fair comparison: Higgins reported 40 time was 4.54 AJ Green- 4.50 Michael Thomas- 4.57 Deandre Hopkins- 4.57 Mike Evans- 4.53 Julio Jones- 4.39 OBJ- 4.43 Antonio Brown- 4.47 Keenan Allen- 4.75 Tyreek Hill- 4.2 something ridiculous Davante Adams- 4.56 Juju Smith Schuster- 4.54 So in looking at what is widely considered to be the best 10 WR's from last year and their 40 times coming out of college, i'm still confused on why the knock on Higgins. Outside of the outliers like Tyreek (super fast) and Allen (super slow), you are left with an average of 4.50. (I left out AJ as well, since he was simply included because he's a Bengal). It seems utterly ridiculous to see the criticism of his speed, when he seems right on par with some of the best in the league. Making contested catches is his specialty and it's not like you can coach someone into being 6'4, 215lbs. either. He caught 27 TD's during his time at Clemson, which is tied for first and his 13TD's last season were only behind Hopkins for a single season. THIS is what he does. Goes up, makes plays, and scores TD's. Must suck to add a guy like that to the roster huh ?? Then again, Joe Burrow might have something to say about that...

    The camera starts with only the back of my head in frame. Then it recedes, showing me sitting in my evil genius laboratory, I’m monitoring 7 computer screens, all running proprietary algorithms analyzing all things Bengals, from Burrow’s 4th quarter velocity to the transmission fluid temperature in Katie’s Lexus. Around the computers, high voltage arcs from Tesla Coils, crackling and spitting, jump 20 feet across the room. I turn in my chair, the camera re-zooms, my embittered, thousand-yard stare face fills the frame. In a voice heavy with the gravitas and pain that comes from living the life of a Bengals fan, I say, “It all comes down to Fred Johnson.”

    Ha ha! Our (presumably) first round QB uses his celebrity to inspire people to help the less fortunate. Meanwhile, Cleveland’s first round QB uses his celebrity to get rather dismal blow jobs from fame-awed 20 year-old girls in the parking lot behind a strip mall Cheese Cake Factory.

    A boy receives a gift from a Boomer A helmet of stripes and a rumor That he'd be a Bengal not a year sooner With a frown he looked down At least, he mused, it's not Brown Sunny Miami, a new day arrives The Red Rifle powers multiple drives With his teammates he enjoys his high fives But the fans look on through tears For this victory confirmed all of their fears And the boy bought his Florida home He was going to have a practice dome! His girlfriend rests outside in the warm midnight gloam The stripes were memories and jokes Bless the Bengals for ensuring this hoax

    STATEMENT FROM ROGER GOODELL, GOD-KING OF THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE “Earlier this week, the League was made aware of allegations of illegal sideline filming by the New England Patriots. Normally, such a repeat violation of the rules would be met with harsh punishment. However, since the offense was made against the Cincinnati Bengals, who are only an NFL team by a strict reading of League bylaws, we are going to let this one slide. We will be fining Bengals head coach Zac Taylor $10,000 for disclosing the existence of the investigation and linebacker Vontaze Burfict $15,000 just because. In conclusion, all hail Me, Roger Goodell, God-King of the National Football League.”

    Better to hold him back, make sure he gets totally healthy. For that matter, hold the whole starting defense out, let them heal.

    This is why not trading AJ for another first round selection was such a disaster. This issue could be solved with more picks in this draft. Of course I have zero faith in the Bengals front office to do something with those picks, so....we are screwed until Brown hires a general manager from outside the organization and ponies up for a professional scouting Dept. Until that happens this is all moot.

    Sorry Dalton, but cry me a river. You were a good decent QB for the Bengals. Great to the fans. Didn't get it done, period. Who cares what he agrees with or how he feels? He choked away winnable playoff games in 2013 (Chargers) and 2014 (Colts). The organization awarded him with a contract extension in Spring 2014. His best season ended unfairly to him in 2015. But this organizations loyalty to him has them holding the bag of a mediocre QB that simply will never win with this organization given the current talent level. The Bengals loyalty to Marvin and Dalton has cost them chances at players that look like generational talents at the position Watson, Mahomes, and Lamar Jackson. If the 9ers can boot Joe Montana then sorry Dalton.

    No, this isn't my mock draft for next year, well.... not yet. Rather, they announced the NFL draft will be in Cleveland next year. I tried to make reservations, but the rates for the rooms aren't loaded up yet. ArmyBengal Jr. and myself are definitely going for at least the first round festivities !!!

    I am starting to really like the Mitchell Wilcox TE USF UDFA pickup. He looks like an athletic, multiple use TE. He can line up inside/outside and is an average/willing blocker. Many talking heads had him going mid rounds and comparisions to Travis Kelce coming out. I'm thinking he sticks on the team this season. In 2 years he may be our #1 TE. Much better college career than Moss had.

    I referenced Daniel Jeremiah's pod where he talked about burrow a few weeks back as a must listen, but for those that couldn't hear it, Peter King got Jeremiah to talk about what he covered on that pod in his column - putting it here for those who missed it the first time on what happened between 2018 and 2019 for Burrow: https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/02/24/nfl-combine-preview-pass-interference-replay-fmia-peter-king/?cid=nbcsports

    I was on TDN earlier today and I rather enjoyed this outcome. I go into these with the thought that they address RT in free agency. So figure these results with the addition of say... Jack Conklin at RT. 1. Joe Burrow, QB, LSU 2. Kenneth Murray, LB, Oklahoma 3. Malik Harrison, LB, Ohio State 4. Trey Adams, OT, Washington 5. Michael Pittman Jr., WR, USC 6. Colby Parkinson, TE, Stanford 7. Levonta Taylor, CB, Florida St. The addition of two LB's certainly can't hurt when looking at our current depth chart. Adams, provides depth and could use the time to learn. I have watched Pittman during his time in USC and think he would be a good addition to the WR corps. Parkinson is a huge redzone target for Burrow and Taylor is a smaller CB that QB's stayed away from.

    There seems to be two different camps on this board regarding the draft and Joe Burrow. There’s the mindset of trying to build a roster efficiently. Then there’s the mindset of how to best change the culture. IMO, no amount of draft picks can make up for those players that can literally change the energy of a team. This is the biggest reason I think you take Burrow and spend your efforts on figuring out the rest of the draft. Get your leader.

    any expansion of the season should include an expansion of the roster size, to account for additional injuries. Perhaps half the practice squad members could be called up for any game (with a commensurate bump in pay for said bump) after week 8 and the practice squad roster could be raised to 12 to 16 players.

    Screw the media, it’s all about the big market teams. When a player who may be as good as Burrow comes out, they want to see them on these big market teams, anything else is a crime! I can’t stand the media anymore it’s why I don’t watch this stupid shit anymore.

    Here is one where I traded back in the 2nd and picked up another 5th (the TDN engine wouldn't give me a 4th): 1. Burrow 2. Jeff Gladney, CB, TCU 3. Prince Tega Wanogho, T, Auburn 4. T. Moss, TE, LSU 5. A. Robinson, Edge, Syracuse 5. D. Duverney, WR, Texas 6. A. Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty 7. A. Gibson, WR/RB, Memphis

    Burrow is the only one who'd put any butts in the seats. Not Burrow could very well remove MORE butts from the seats. Winning would bring them back eventually, but can this franchise really afford to wait around for the planets to align? Even with three first round picks I have zero confidence in their ability to put together something capable. I'm glad they seem to agree with the most obvious approach here.

    Wish him the best. Class act and one of my favorite Bengals. It’s a shame his best season and his best team ended for him with a broken thumb. Bad o-line picks doomed the remainder of his Bengal time.

    Exactly. When you look at Drew Brees you see his stats. But you also see where he turned around an entire franchise. Stats don’t show the impact of his leadership and character and what it’s meant to that organization and city. I think the Bengals organization is a dumpster fire. It’s not likely that changes. But...if there’s a way it does, it might be by bringing in players like Joe Burrow. And since he’s a QB he has that much more impact. You take the risk here. You have to. You simply cannot see the state of this organization and then think they have the brain power to construct a top roster and THEN get your QB. Makes no sense whatsoever. Zero.

    He's played in like 9 of the last 32 games, is 32 years old. I wouldl let him walk if there's legit fear of a chronic issue. I don't care about any drama, I just don't understand why he thinks he's entitled to another long-term deal at this point?

    I’m reading this thread while sipping a cup of Mock Turtle Soup. Foul stuff but one must get in the mood. Now, can anyone tell me how to bypass the Mel Kiper paywall on ESPN? I wouldn’t want to have to just throw darts for draft picks. Oh wait, really I would. So much more fun that way.

    First of all. Palmer is not the first prominent Bengal to point out these kinds of facts about the front office. Get your butt hurt all you want about Palmer. He spoke up and was a huge reason the Bengals had a resurgence in 2011 and on. Their hand was forced to get a new QB and they acquired additional draft picks. Second. Who gives a shit who said it? Look at what he's saying instead of attacking the person saying it. Third. Occam's razor. Evidence and stats don't lie. You can cherry pick some good seasons here and there but what's the average win total the last 29 years? Last. What evidence is there to say the Bengals can maintain any level of success that could lead to a championship? There is none.

    Thats what worries me, Zac decided to bring his friends along instead of hiring vet coaches. That’s not to say some of these guys won’t work out in the end, but as of now this seems like a team without a plan. The guys they did sign to this team don’t even have a purpose? Gio hardly touches the ball, Eifert does not seem to catch passes anymore, Uzamah really don’t see him, what the hell is the plan around here. As a fan right now I don’t know how to feel. I don’t want to root for another team, but at the same time I don’t want to watch this shit show that they have here now. All I want is to wake up Sundays excited because the Bengals are on, and now I wake up thinking of other things to do. I hated Marvin at the end, but at least at one time he put together a coaching staff that gave this team hope, almost every year we had a chance because they were in the playoffs, I just want that feeling again. Somewhere Marvin is laughing along with Carson Palmer. F**k me this sucks!
