    I've made the dire mistake of trying to participate in the large Bengals board "Jungle Noise". Yikes. There's definitely a reason I've stuck with Bengalszone all this time.

    I'll be amazed if we win more than 4 all year. The coaching is appalling, pointless having "all this talent" when the play calling is so poor, if we can guess whats coming you can guarantee any nfl coach can!! When was the last time we made good/positive half time adjustments?

    The video is primarily about Mixon. Lap highlights a couple awesome run blocks from Uzomah and Sample though that got me pumped. I love to see those two devouring defenders that should be above their pay grade. I know Sample had at least one gaffe in pass protection, but it's easy to see why they like the guy so much.

    Hi everyone, it's been quite some time. To start, I handled many conversations here poorly on my way out last time. The truth is, I had just lost my father at that time and in the few months that followed 3 more family and close friends. I was an absolute mess and my life took a massive downward spiral. Things are looking up these days and thought I'd drop in. Strangely enough, it was the season opener against the Vikings that got me back into the Bengals. I was given tickets to the game and went with my son. I didn't watch the draft for the first time in nearly 20 years. I had no idea who was on the team and never gave a second to think of the Bengals. The only player I was aware of being drafted was Chase. I found that out a couple months ago when I took my son to the pro football hall of fame. I'm just now playing catch up with it all after watching the game Sunday. Anyway, I just wanted to say hello to everyone. Truly wishing you all well and hope things have been good with you and your families.

    Listening to KFAN this morning, obviously lots of talk about the Bengals/Vikes game. Here is a synopsis 1) they are worried about the Rashad Hill/Trey Hendrickson matchup 2) they think we are vulnerable in the secondary and they think Jefferson and Thielen are going to feast (kinda laughing about how bad Awuzie was in Dallas...I think they are in for a rude awakening on that score, personally) 3) They think their secondary is prime for some INTs because Burrow has accuracy issues (?????) 4) They think Chase is going to be a non-factor 5) They are worried about Hilton blitzing and their ability to pick it up 6) Nick Vigil will likely start :) because Barr is not quite ready to go. 7) the offense is going to run through Cook (duh) and they will use early success with Cook to open stuff up deep for Thielen and Jefferson 8) no confidence in their TEs may run FB at least early on. Sounds like a lot of 21 personnel, a return to '90s era football. Here are my thoughts. 1) on early run downs I expect to see Reader and Shelvin to open stuff up for the safeties, Hilton and the LBs to make plays, their interior oline is pretty inexperienced and their Center as been a disappointment since being drafted in the first round 2) Cousins does not react well underpressure we have to attack him early and often. 3) Eli Apple better be better than he has shown elsewhere in his career or we may be in trouble. I have faith in Awuzie. 4) The Vikings are not deep at virtually any position, any attrition in their starting 22 will have adverse affects 5) Breshad Breeland and Patrick Peterson are their starts at CB, I like a Breeland/Higgins matchup for the Bengals and I like a Peterson/Chase matchup if Chase can get some early success to bolster his confidence. No clue who is matched up with Boyd but we have an advantage there as well. 6) Vikes dline is much improved over last year, it will be a test for our rebuilt oline. Hunter is an x factor.

    Let's just say that IF the goal was providing Burrow the maximum safest protection you could - as between signing a vet like Reiff or relying on Sewell - the Bengals chose correctly for the start of this season...

    Lose next week and the fans are going to start really turning on Taylor I think. At some point you have to start winning some damn games. They are a fluke fumble away from 0-2. It's year 3 and they look like this? The guy's a clown.

    I don't think Anu was doing any blitzing there, or bringing an extra guy(s), due to the long yardage situations (assuming that).

    https://www.espn.com/nfl/insider/story/_/id/32145768/lessons-my-visit-joe-burrow-cincinnati-bengals-why-lost-confidence-expect-2021 Lessons from my visit with Joe Burrow of Cincinnati Bengals: Why he hasn't lost any confidence, and what to expect in 2021 Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer CINCINNATI -- The first time I asked to interview Joe Burrow, in early August, the answer was no. This was a point in training camp when Burrow was, by his own admission, struggling with some stuff. Working to return to the field following last season's significant knee injury, the Cincinnati Bengals' second-year quarterback was wrestling with some psychological aspects of his recovery. By the second time I asked, a couple of weeks later, all of that stuff was an eye-roll-inducing memory. "That was about four days of camp," Burrow told me Wednesday during an interview after the team's morning walkthrough at Paul Brown Stadium. "And everyone wanted to write a bunch of articles about it. And then, you know, the other 25 days of camp, I was back to my old self -- slinging the ball around, reading the coverages, feeling great. Nobody wanted to write about that." Consider it written about. Here are some of the impressions I got from the time I spent with him for a SportsCenter interview: Burrow, the 2019 Heisman Trophy winner and 2020 No. 1 pick, is a young man who's extremely confident in his ability to handle just about anything. Whether it's four days of training camp doubt, 10 months of grueling injury rehab or anything in between, Burrow seems to have the same attitude about everything: Work is work, the job is whatever the job is, and once he figures out what he needs to do, it's going to get done. "I didn't treat rehab any differently than I had the offseason before or the offseason before that," he said. "You know, it was just, come to work every day, get your work in and then go home and rest. I had to put in a little more work than I usually would have, because I would rehab and then I would lift, then throw, so it was more work than usual, but you know... that's what I do." Each of his answers started with what felt like a verbal shrug. Not in an arrogant or dismissive way -- just the matter-of-fact perspective of an unusually mature 24-year-old who doesn't mind not knowing what comes next because he's sure he can handle it. That's what I do. But his confidence is alloyed with enough humility that it's not off-putting. Asked whether he has any pregame superstitions, he says no and then casually mentions he has been wearing his left sock inside-out during games since he was at Ohio State. That's a yes, Joe, and he smiles and admits as much when pressed. But he still doesn't know why he does it. It's just another thing he does and doesn't worry about too much. Concerned at all about rookie receiver Ja'Marr Chase's preseason drops? Shrug. Smile. "You know, he's had great practices the last, you know, week and a half, and he's dropped a few in preseason games, but he's got one-series, two-series games, hasn't had a chance to get in a rhythm yet," Burrow said. "So nobody's really worried about it." Wish you'd had more than three plays in the preseason? Shrug. Nah. "It wasn't so much about those three plays as much as it was about the feeling in the locker room, knowing I was about to go out there and put my body on the line and play a game and have the potential to get hit, get those butterflies out of the way in pregame so I'm ready to roll Week 1," he said. Remember what was going through your mind when you got hurt? Sure. "Um, my knee hurt, first off," he laughed. "And then after that, it was more of, you know, let's get this surgery out of the way so I can get back to work and get back on the field. It was obviously disappointing. We were just starting to get rolling as an offense. I was really starting to understand the system and the defenses that we were going to play. So it happened at an unfortunate time, but it allowed me to go through the process of the rehab and get back to where I'm at now." The two long vertical scars down the sides of his left knee make it clear something significant happened. He'll have to wear a knee brace when he plays for a year, which he's not thrilled about. But again, it just kind of all is what it is. Burrow is hope personified for the Bengals' fan base, and his ability to resume what they desperately need to be a franchise-savior career is the story of Cincinnati's season. A lot of pressure comes with that, but it won't surprise you to know he shrugs at that, too. "You know, I don't really feel the pressure too much," he said. "Pressure's a word that outside people use to describe situations, and as long as I prepare the way I need to, I'm going to play the way I need to and we're going to win football games. So, you know, that's really all it comes down to." Sounds pretty simple, right? Keeping it that way might be the key to the success Joe Burrow has had so far and whatever further success still awaits him.

    I really liked what I saw out of (Trenton) Irwin in preseason. Glad they kept him over Taylor. Nice upside depth in the slot behind Boyd. All that guy did was get open and catch everything this year (Irwin). I have to imagine he led the team in receiving during preseason, but, haven't looked at the #'s yet. Wouid like to see Patrick make the PS, and get more looks next season.

    Lots of Darren Simmons pull visible on the depth chart with the likes of Wilcox and Morgan making the team.

    I’d give the deal a snap grade of A. Price was gone after this year (if not this year, if they dealt him you have to think he was on the bubble right now) so this is good value. Hill at worst gives us depth behind Reader and Ogun, both of whom have had some injury issues in the past. At best he boosts a pass rush that has taken some hits in the preseason. Yes as mentioned it thins out oline depth but, if needed, finding a below-average interior OL to replace Price shouldn’t be hard. Overall not a lot to dislike. Props to the FO.

    Yeah I heard Sewell transition to RT is proving to be more challenging than anticipated. Leatherwood was shock first round selection by the Raiders but there's nothing really bad ever said about him. Never got beat but didn't dominate people like his pedigree would suggest he should is what I remember.

    Finally after a long season of crawling, the Reds have taken the wild card lead over the Padres. It's half a game and could be tied again tonight depending on SD's game against Philly.
