    *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.”

    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.

    Hey, if for some reason, this COVID shit does go all heywire, forcing them to cancel the 2020 season, do the Bengals get the #1 pick again ?? COVID, COVID, COVID !!! They would probably do some lottery thing to determine who picks where, but I was just wondering... Yes, the offseason sucks.

    Don't get me wrong, I love seeing them move towards starting the season, but i'm still not buying at this point. While I like seeing the amount of deaths not doubling anymore (10000 more this past week) there are reasons for that. When things start to relax and people go back to how things use to be (gyms, restaurants, movies, church, etc) my concern remains the same. What's to keep it from spreading further in the future? The hope is that people remain distanced properly, wear masks, and continue hand washing. Another concern are the people that simply don't believe any of it and still think it's all horseshit. (See my next door neighbor) Look, I could be and HOPE that i'm 100% wrong and have nothing to be concerned about at all. That being said, color me a continued skeptic.

    Higgins is a monster in his own right. I also won the damn picks contest at go-bengals with that pick... This is stuck on my mind - look at the speed and power: https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=tee+higins+vs.+lsu&docid=607999259429307018&mid=0454A7916601E483EDFD0454A7916601E483EDFD&view=detail&FORM=VIRE

    Patrick said, “People can’t believe that you’d want to go play for the Bengals, why would you? And I said, do you want to pull an Eli and say well I don’t want to play there. And then they go well you’re from Ohio and I go well that doesn’t mean that you’re a Bengal fan. This is a business decision.” Dan Patrick, Joe Burrow is not a free agent. He’s getting drafted, into a system that labor and management have bargained for and agreed upon. He doesn’t have a “business decision” to make regarding which team he signs with. The utter scorn, the disdain, that Patrick assumes everyone agrees with when they’re discussing the Bengals is fucking infuriating. Not that Mike gives a fuck.

    It seems so simple. They've taken lumps drafting Joe Mixon. They invested in Jonah Williams. You couldn't trade AJ and still want him around. It appears they'll draft Burrow. Get an O-linemen in FA. Then draft another in 2nd or 3rd. Get the pieces in place so all these parts have the best possible foundation to put up points. Do that and everything becomes fun again.

    I get all that. But regardless of who is QB they have the same problem. Building and maintaining the roster. Sure they can hit the lotto in the draft like they did 2009-2013. But they need to enter the 21st century and embrace FA. Drafting Joe Burrow alone makes them a much better team in an addition by himself.

    Sometimes players read these forums, so who knows. This is definitely not a bad thread though. Andy Dalton was the QB I wanted in 2011, and I was thrilled when it came to pass. His tenure here more than justified the faith the franchise placed in him. With a couple luckier breaks here or there, even those postseason experiences could have been different. Either way, it was the longest stretch of sustained success the franchise has ever had. He ran the show through all of it, and when things got worse he never made a peep. He showed up, played his game, and represented Cincinnati as well as anyone could. If the Bengals did one of those rings of honor, I'd want him on it someday.

    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?

    Burrow has a work ethic and is a student of the game. Nothing like Akili Smith. As of now he’s the runaway QB prospect. If he dominates the CF playoffs, it’s even more so. You can’t play the “what if” game. You draft the #1 QB prospect. You ride with that decision. Even more important is you improve the talent on the roster. Not taking him “because he might fail” though the evidence in front of you says the opposite...is the talk of losers.

    The fact is everything is an illusion. The Bengals aren't the victim, the fans aren't the victim. The Bengals could move on and make things work if they make changes. They could stay here and make it work if they make changes. The city isn't destitute if the Bengals leave. Life will go on. Emotionally and fiscally. The city would find a way. The NFL and the Bengals would find a way. But this is how change happens. From experiencing consequences in life. Nothing is going to completely fall apart. Everything holding the "same old, same old" in place is fear, speculation, and panic. Not a recipe for success in anything in life.

    All the Bengals need is 5 new linemen, 3 new linebackers, 1 new corner, 1 new tight end, and we’ll be fine. Almost there.

    self inflicted is right they are at least aware of the issue now, 2-3 years too late.......using a 2 1's in the last couple years has at least indicated awareness, but its been much too little and much too late incidentally - the two other Centers that we were looking at when we took Price? Ragnow is already approaching pro bowl level, and Daniels, after a solid year as a started OG, is now the starter at OC for the Bears

    Mine dates back to the 1981 team. I was 10 years old and seated in the end zone of Super Bowl XVI. I still remember Johnson getting stopped like it was yesterday. I got separated from my Dad while leaving and a security guard found me in tears. The cool ending to the story ?? No, not when my Dad found me at the security station. It was the security guard that got me to calm down by walking me across the middle of the Super Bowl field at the Pontiac Silverdome. Dad who ???

    I never understand it either. Other fan bases go off the national narrative. Dalton is a quality QB just not a superstar.
