    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...

    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.

    Joe Burrow will be set up to fail if this team is out of the playoff race by Halloween. The best way to get up to .500 AND to protect Joe Burrow is via Joe Mixon. Get him a road grader or 2. That keeps Joe in manageable downs and distance. Creates bigger windows to throw into. Shifts total snaps back to our offense and away from the other team's offense so it helps our defense.

    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.

    Mike's craigslist ad for linebacking help (accidentally posted on the Dubuque, Iowa, Craigslist when Mike just typed in "TriState Area") - "Family owned and operated business looking for help at linebacker. You should be pretty big for to do this job. Must know how to tackle and shed blocks. Must enjoy working in a small, bottom line-oriented business. Medical and dental included, pension possibility after 3 years. Must be willing to sign non-disclosure agreement. Hopefully you like lifting weights."

    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.

    Mike buys his son those jackets a little large on purpose. You just know these youngsters will grow into them! Plus, if they’re a tad large they wear a little better. Important when you plan on having a sports coat for 45 years or so.

    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?

    Lose this f'ing game. And it isn't just about Burrow, it is about getting the first pick in every round. Particularly the second and fourth rounds where you can have the evening gather your materials and take the first player of the day.

    I’m all over Joe Burrow. I’ve been rooting for a complete and unapologetic tank job specifically so we could pick him. I first heard of Joe Burrow his senior year in high school when he torched my alma mater in the state tournament. Ok, I admit it, Joe Burrow and I are secretly married.

    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.

    Not on topic, but great watching the Steelers lose to the Bills just now in the tube. Funny how all these great coaches suddenly don’t look all that smart when they lose their franchise QB.

    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.

    Just because they have a ton of holes to fill doesn't mean they should look anywhere other than QB if they are picking 1st or 2nd overall. That is the prime spot to take a swing at a position that can change a franchise's direction. Hardest thing to find in this league is a difference maker at QB. Best odds at finding that person are taking one as early as possible. Spin that wheel. No guarantees, of course, but I would rather take the chance than be timid and sit out the spin.

    We could have had Zimmer. Dude knows how to run an nfl team, and can evaluate talent. This season, and this game, is the culmination of a lifetime of work by Mike Brown. His method, his career as a GM, can now be irrefutably deemed a monumental failure.

    It will take resolve to get it done week 17 against the Dolphins. But if we stay determined, we can lose that game. We don’t even have to try to lose it. We’re bad enough, we’ll just straight up get beat. But if we focus too much on that last game, we could easily overlook our December 1st game against the Jets. Classic “trap” game that we could easily win if we overlook it and don’t take it seriously.

    I really hope they don't spend huge for AJ Green. Let him walk. Thanks for the fish, AJ, but wide receiver is not a position to invest a ton of money in. Whitworth was a bigger loss because blindside tackle is a more important piece.

    Happy birthday Andy! The season just got 25% more interesting than it already wasn't. I'm ready to watch somebody else flounder after 8+ years, but hopefully somebody better than Driskel was for God's sakes. Remember he was a preseason champ too for a while. Yet he reminded of a poor man's Dalton. Finley strikes me as someone who can work in a pocket better and take care of the ball, maybe avoid some sacks in the pocket, something Dalton and Driskel were terrible at. Outside of that, I suspect that top 5 pick next year will be a QB regardless.

    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!

    This upcoming game genuinely worries me - feels like a trap game where they might accidentally win.

    The ONLY thing that would interest me at this point is for them to do this right - and sell off Green, Dalton, Atkins, Dunlap, Dre and WJIII and bring back a bevy of picks and re-boot this thing. That would be interesting and potentially a way forward. But I know they won't even do that.

    Yes, Brown Family, your fans are detailing draft prospects 4 games into the season. I’d like them to get Tua. What they’ll do to protect him once he’s here, I have no idea. If the words “Andre Smith” are involved, Tua should just stay in school for another year.

    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 ???

    Among the many reasons I want Zac Taylor to succeed is I want his success to de-validate Marvin’s style and methods. All the ‘not my job to motivate players, halftime adjustments are a myth, why’d we lose games? Because the other team scored more points,’ all that fucking bullshit he spewed for years. I want it all exposed for what it was, the musings of a disinterested, burned out, inflexible old timer who refused to learn or to change. It’s a ***damn national tragedy that Billy didn’t live long enough to see Marvin and his whole regime get shown the door.

    In a related article, the Bengals fans were asked some questions recently. Has it been a difficult transition from Marvin Lewis to Zac Taylor ?? "No, it has not." Do you miss him ?? "No we don't." Do you hope he returns at some point ?? "F*CK HIM" Why did the Bengals fail in the postseason on Marvin's watch ?? "Because Marvin obviously never really gave a shit and couldn't resist being a snarky prick at every opportunity." Sounds like Bengals fans won't be paying much attention to what Marvin does in 2019...
