    We are headed out on vacation and when we were at the Cincinnati airport, we ran into John Ross. Was super cool with my son and we got a great pic with him. Funny thing is, the people around us were like, who is that guy ?? My son is still amped up. Good guy !!

    They care about something. They truly don't care about what we care about. Won't pay Reggie Nelson so they replace him with half the player, Williams. Won't pay Whit, so we get Ogbuehi. Won't pay Zeitler, so we get revolving cast of characters. Won't pay Marvin Jones, so we get Ross, er, Boyd, er, whoever we can find on a rookie deal. Won't pay Mohammad Sanu, so we get anyone on a rookie deal, again. Truly, the new CBA and the incredible incentive it gave cheap owners to play youngsters on their first contracts - Mike used that just like we suspected he would. No team is all veterans. But Mike is pretty good at keeping cheap vets who are glad to have a job, like Peko, and letting guys who'll earn significant cash on their second deal walk out the door.

    I think Alexander was the ultimate company man. If he got fed shit, he thanked Mike for the caviar and asked for seconds. Its why he survived so long here. Mike says,"we don't want to pay all these vets their 2nd and 3rd contracts. Paul, you're the o line coach, are the new guys WHO ARE ON THEIR COST CONTROLLED UNDER THE NEW CBA ROOKIE CONTRACTS ready to take over?" Paul answers, "you bet they are sir! Bodine's a great player! Cedric's a natural left tackle, he's ready." Somehow I don't think Zimmer was that compliant. He's got players who follow him from one team to another. Alexander played a political game here, as many do, and it finally caught up with him. Marvin, loathesome as we all find him, at least deserves credit for getting Mike to drive his favorite golden retriever to the pound.

    With Elliot making the practice squad, this is kind of the best of both worlds. I'm happy. In the end, though, it doesn't really matter. All we're really deciding is which kicker is going to miss the game-winning field goal in the round 1 of the playoffs.

    Football is now back , and iam really ready for some Bengals football. Last season this team ended with a losing record. But time to but that aside and get into full domination mode. We need to melt down the Steelers, neuter the Browns, and clip the wings of the Ravens. If we should survive all that, we could have a winning season.

    Dear Andy Dalton, We are pleased to inform you that the monthly premium for your disability insurance is being reduced by 30% due to recent business decisions made by your employer. Please be aware that the "Maimed or Dismembered" rider will still be priced in the 100th percentile due to, during practice days, your proximity to one "Vontaze Burfict." Thank you, Rocky Cliff Agent, Unyielding Monolith Insurance Company

    Well, as Willy noted above, we're listing badly to starbord as we try to navigate the wake of the jet boats that just flew past us. In regards to free agent tackles, perhaps we'll find a large carcass floating along. We'll pull it aboard, but we'll just use it for ballast, to level the boat out. Once we get that blob onboard, we won't look like we're in so much distress.

    I really don’t believe that. I think those victories gave something to rationalize the easy path for Mike. IMO, the guy doesn’t want to do the hard work to get the organization to the next level and will just continue to look at runs to the Super Bowl as decided by fate and circumstance.

    Yep, they're infusing this staff with new blood from a bunch of different organizations. They're finding guys who've had significant success. Aaron Rogers' qb coach, the Cowboys' o-line was really good, they went and got that dude. And Detroit's D was very good, they hired that guy. Contrast all that with what they did when Zimmer left - just defaulted to Guenther, and what they did when Hue Jackson left - just defaulted to Zampese. They're doing things differently right now.

    Just because the beams in a barn are rotten doesn't mean you shouldn't fix the bad roof sheeting. And we had bad roof sheeting. Years of Alexander acting like Guy-check could play sickened this team. It emboldened defenses, they blitzed right up the center time and again. It gave momentum away. Then his draft pick at center struggled as well. I'm very excited to see what the new o-line coach and dc can do for this team. That defense could do something special. Talent? Burfict, Iloka, Atkins, Dunlap, our young corners - we've got a defense loaded with talent. If the line can be turned around, the offense can stay on the field, we quit leaving our defense on the field for 45 minutes a game. And we start winning games! True, Marvin might choke it away in the playoffs, but he can't be here forever. There's a new feeling to the way they went out and got those two new coaches from Detroit and Dallas. I'm very optimistic about this team compared to last off-season. PS - Leveon Bell is sowing discord within the Steelers organization the week of a playoff game. Delicious.

    A meaningless (to the Bengals) win at the end of his 15th season. That was Marvin's Super Bowl. What a clutch coach, let's give him real ultimate power over the family business. You've got to be kidding me. If a guy wins you a Super Bowl or two, then coaches to the end of his deal, he has the right to leverage you a little and get more power, or money. He's got options at that point. Who are we competing with for Marvin's services? What has he done to entitle him to demand more control? This is a clever troll job by Marvin, and it is a smack in the face of the organization that kept him way longer than any other would. He's just creating the narrative (not enough control, interference by the Brown family) for why he could never win anything. Marvin's a conniving little dickhead. His condescending and disrespectful way towards the media and the fans isn't an outlier, it's who he is. Mike Brown, move on from this choke artist. You(correction, WE THE FANS) deserve better.

    I don’t disagree. But why can’t they do both? Get the star QB and build the OL? Getting a solid OL doesn’t have to require a top 10 pick. Getting a star QB just might require that high pick.

    Yes, let's add 3-4 more key pieces for Dalton to be serviceable. Then we can watch the Bengals struggle to retain and keep those pieces together. Or we can just draft a QB that can carry a team on his back and doesn't need an offense built around him.

    This is something I won't miss about Marvin Lewis, and that I hope changes with the next HC. Marvin continually defers talent to the bench in favor of "veteran status". We've seen it over the years. Players who deserve to be on the field only to be placed behind the likes of John Thornton and Robert Geathers. Some of those guys get on the field in year 3 or 4, then leave to FA finding success with other teams. And in this case with Develin, he was never given a chance. Marvin plays favorites to keep his status with older players at all costs. It's a weak stance, one without proper coaching boundaries with players and one that breeds a huge lack of accountability. Bye Marvin!

    I know most will be shocked at my comment but here is what I did this morning. I woke up and walk to tv to turn on game and see the score as Minn 17 and Cinn 0, I turn off tv. yep only 5 sec of watching today for me.

    It may seem mean but I'm sick of the Shazier talk. He's a known head hunter, spears all the time. I said after the playoff game he would suffer a bad injury because of him lowering his head to be cheap and dirty. Sick of Lewis. Sick of this team on prime time or against Steelers

    I'm so done with Marvin ball that it's just hard to be positive about anything regarding the Bengals. From the (lack of) sound of it at the stadium on TV today, I suspect we're not alone.

    Time for a new QB as well time to start looking. I have been a Dalton supporter, but we got all we could get out of him a few years back. Its over guys. Whatever hope you had its gone! They had there shot a few years ago, but let there egos get in the way, and now we're back living the 90's

    Bend don't break is the defense of the future for the NFL. You can't do anything without risking a penalty, it seems. The best defense today is make them snap the ball as many times as possible and then capitalize on a mistake. With the Burfict suspension, IF that's really going to be the standard of defenseless receiver or unnecessary roughness shallow drag routes will dominate the league. I've said it for a while but D-line in pass rush resemble Volleyball blocking schemes more and more each year. The risk/reward for contacting a QB is now slanted to the Offense. Now if potential pass catchers are able to cross through a defense in zone coverage around 5 yards with no contact (only hand checks), forget it. Your best defense is to try to bat the pass down instead of trying to get a hit on the QB. You'll never get there in time and QB/Receiver timing will be impossible to disrupt. 70% completion percentage will become the low water mark of Qbing eventually. They need to evaluate 1st and 10 then and make 13 yards or something. IF that's the standard, which I doubt it will seemed like a Burfict witch hunt.

    The running back. They're notorious for being able to help early in their career. I honestly have no character concerns. That assault was almost 3 years ago and he's been a model citizen since. And that was not a domestic violence situation. Why important? Because batterers often reoffend. This assault was on a stranger. If you read the facts, that girl and Mixon were strangers in a 1 minute spat, inflammatory racial and sexual insults from both sides, then she hit him in the face. He should've walked away, but lost it and hit her. 2 points: 1. This victim obviously felt that her gender allowed her to tee off on a strangers face. Wrong, that's not how the world works. Mixon's judgement wasn't where it should have been. He had turned 18 the day before this incident. Just a stupid slap with a punch returned. 2. This was probably the worst moment of this kid's life. It ended up on YouTube. How many of us, if the worst moment of our lives, the worst thing we ever did, ended up on YouTube, would be publicly admired or applauded for it? It makes me shudder to consider some of the shit I was involved in 18-23, if that showed up on video I'd a. Be in jail, b. Be very ashamed. Superficially, one can look at the Bengals letting two super character guys, Whit and Rex, walk out the door, and they follow that up by bringing in Mixon! Well, Mixon truthfully is not a character risk. One mistake, committed when he was very young and after physical provocation. His conduct in the ensuing almost 3 years reveals a ton more about his character than that 1 second they keep showing on the tube.

    There was never any oline help coming in this draft, because it's a terrible draft for the position, especially tackles. This is part of why Whit got such a crazy deal, and all of why not going to the mat for either him or KZ is the team's biggest error this offseason. But here's the thing: they can get away with a weak oline. They have for years. The oline has always been over-rated in the Dalton era. It's deficiencies are masked by the system, which relies on pre-snap reads and getting the ball out of the QBs hands in under 2 seconds. The oline doesn't have to be more than a speed bump. But to make this work you need two things. One, a QB who can execute the pre-snap read, quickly assess whether he was right or wrong post-snap, and deliver the ball. It took Andy a couple years, but he was there by 2015 and was on course for a deep run until the Steelers stomped his hand. Two, you need receivers, backs and ends who can get open quickly. We lost all that after 2015. Last season Sanu was gone, Jones was gone, and Eifragile and Gio got hurt. The result was that the ball didn't come out quickly and Dalton got dumped 50-some times, more than he had in the previous two seasons combined. And that was a line with Whit and KZ. Again, without the weapons on the receiving end, the system doesn't work. so I like what they've done. In the absence of good oline prospects, they've chosen to rebuild the offensive skill spots. It's really their only choice, given the circumstances. How well it works will depend on how fast the new picks can sync up with the rest of the offense, and whether the current oline can get to "speed bump" quality. I think both are doable but unfortunately will take time and I don't think the schedule is kind this year. Throw in the likelihood of injury wrenches (Moobs and Eifert get hurt taking pregame dumps, Gio and Ross are coming off injury, Green's 50/50 to miss a few games every season, etc) and I agree 2017 isn't likely to be a good year. I think they are doing the best the can this draft, but are paying the price for two years of bad FA decisions. Last year they let two top wideouts go in a weak draft year for receivers, this year they let two top oline players go in a weak year for oline. So it goes in Cincy.

    OK, last season, our Oline sucked. So we start the off season by getting rid of our two best linemen. Got it, they wanted to much money. We bring back injured prone Smith to help with the line. Our TE has be out and may not be ready for the start of the season, or RB my not be back from injury and now we pick a WR in the first round who is projected to start on PUP! Goof Grief!
