    Billy essentially IS Bengalzone. I’ve spent around half of my life contributing to this board in some capacity, and he has always been its spiritual foundation. Rest easy, Boobiemeister.

    Very sad news indeed. Billy has been a huge part of this board since as long as I've been here and the one that asked me to be a moderator all those years ago. Him and I had a chance to meet up a while back at the Hofbrauhaus in Newport. I found the pic here, but it wouldn't let me pull it up. We sat at the bar together, had lunch, drank beers and shot the shit about our beloved Bengals and all other matters we could think of. It was like sitting down with someone I knew my whole life. When I was deployed to Afghanistan, he sent me music and movies on CD. Most notable from that group was a copy of the Bengals and Chargers playing in the freezer bowl. I still have all of the stuff he sent to me. He was also my brother in arms in being a proud Marine !!! I will say a prayer for our friend and also keep his family in our thoughts and prayers through the Holiday season. I am very saddened by the loss of Billy. Rest in Peace my brother !!! Mark

    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.

    Bengals Plan for 2020 1. Bengals legal department to research and file warranty claim regarding the rechargeable battery for the Mega Motion Rascal Elite IV Senior Mobility Scooter. 7 year old battery not holding charge as long as it used to. Litigation very possible. 2. Appeal decision again from Dartmouth refusal in the media guide to refer to the quarterback on the 1955 team as “The Swallower of Planets.” 3. Ask the league if they’ll do something about all this rough stuff around the time of the whistle. Not very sporting. 4. Send NFL offices in New York our most recent bid received from the Pacific Rim for the production of official uniforms. Some real savings to be had there, just need to stop all this Nike nonsense and finally get a good deal on uniforms. 5. See above, North Korean factory shoulder pad prototypes were good enough, real savings available. 6. For God’s sake, I went to Harvard Law. 7. Send a nice fruit basket to Andy’s house. Put a note in there for Jordan, see how she’s holding up. 8. Submit to the league, again, meticulously researched 245 page manifesto detailing the tax implications of unfair burden of paying players’ per diem costs on the road. 9. Have Zac Taylor’s grandad over to the house for dinner again. What a great guy!! 10. Read up on next year’s draft class. Can probably find a copy of Lindy’s Pro Football Draft Preview at the CVS on Montgomery Road.

    Looks like Myles Garrett out indefinitely. Pouncy out 3 games. Each organization fined $250K. I can't remember what the fine were after the 2015 Bengals/Steelers show down. If you play rough with the Steelers they are going to cry bully while kicking you underneath the table.

    It's a bummer we are this terrible in 2019 instead of 2020. Trevor Lawrence looks like the best QB prospect since Luck. There's still time to suck again!

    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.

    There is no joy about this team at all! Every good player that has left this team has said so many bad things about this org. Is it true I don’t know I’m not in that locker room, but with all these guys saying stuff it’s hard not to believe it. Worst thing is Marvin Lewis was the best thing to happen to this team. He came in took a laughing stock of a team to 8-8 in his first year with Kitna at QB and a bunch crappy free agents they brought in. For years he gave this team hope to make the playoffs, he built a coaching staff that was awesome. It was great till all hell broke loose after that last playoff loss. He was losing his coaches, he never knew if he was getting fired, and he became a loss cause. Makes me wonder if he was given all the power, what kind of team he could have built. Taylor comes in with pretty much the same team as last season and can’t win a freaking game. His coaching staff made up of a bunch of his good buddies with no experience can’t gameplan worth a shit. Whatever hope there was is thrown out the window, and I don’t see this team winning for years. This whole thing just sucks. This guy is starting to make me miss Marvin and that’s a really bad thing since I was ready to see Marvin leave. Now I’m depressed again!

    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.

    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.

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

    I think they are bad, but once they start trading away assets and playing players just because they are young; that’s tanking, IMO. Seems like a lot of fans want that now. So do I. Keep in mind that’s a miserable experience with no guarantee they surpass the Marvin days. Cleveland won 4 games in 3 seasons and cycled through so many names it seems like a decade ago.

    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.

    So in the last year’s time, the Patriots owner got busted in a prostitution sting, their multiple murder/spree killer tight end committed suicide in jail, and now their newly signed wideout is facing a rape lawsuit. When will this league wake up to the fact that there is something very wrong in New England?

    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 ???

    Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota were considered "can't miss picks" as was RG3. As good as Fromme, Herbet, and Tagovailoa look there are no guarantees that any of them are better than Dalton. Last I checked the combined playoff win percentage from Winston, Mariota, Griffin, and Watson are the same as Dalton's, whereas 2nd Rounder Brees, 3rd Rounder Wilson, 4th Rounder Prescott, and 6th Rounder Brady are the class of this generation....It is a myth that you must spend a high first round pick to draft a great QB. Dalton has proven he can win a lot of games in this league with a competent OLine...I would go to war with Trent Williams, Jordan, Hopkins/Price, Hopkins/Price, and Glenn as my starting 5 and the team might shock a lot of people. Oh...and it might show the fanbase that you give a damn about winning....

    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...

    Reggie Kelly was heck of a blocker. Really Greshman was the last complete TE they had. He could block very good. Just fumble a bunch.

    Brief thoughts if it is indeed Taylor: John Harbaugh’s resume didn’t look all that impressive when ravens picked him either. Special teams coach for the Eagles. Tomlin only had one year as a d-coordinator when picked. Just saying. No idea if he will be anywhere near as good as those two have been, but thin resume doesn’t bother me. Sam Wyche’s resume was hella thin too before he was hired. Point is, either you have what it takes , or you don’t. I don’t think there is any one path to success as head coach. David Shula sucked because he was terrible, not because he had wrong experience. Wyche worked out because he absolutely had the creative flair and personality to succeed, none of which you could fairly see coming off of one year head coaching at IU and anonymous asst coaching in NFL for years before that (learning under Bill Walsh). Taylor may be a disaster, but, he could also be quietly inspired. At least he isn’t Gase, or Hue, or Joseph, or some other warmed over more of the same coach. This team and org needs shock paddles. Taylor is at least that. And if he is an abject disaster, then maybe in two years when he is fired he gifts the new coach with the #1 pick in 2021 and we get the Clemson qb. But this is as interested as I have been as a bengals fan in a long time, in any event.

    I'd be curious to see what Bieniemy could get from Ross as well. Seeing as he's the wannabe Tyreek Hill, maybe he can impart some wisdom and confidence in a player we need to thrive in our offense. Here's a quick video I saw from the Chiefs training camp last year. Interesting 3 minutes of time. I'm warming up to him as the choice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iR2Zi7Rb_Z4

    I know I said I will never come back to this forum ever again, but I am here for this. I check this forum today because I havent heard from him for a while. didnt expect it to be this reason. it hit me hard than I expect. He is one of guys here who always care about me as he always say, I am his ARIZONA BRO. I will never forgot him for rest of my life. even on the day Bengals win Superbowl it will be sad day for us.

    i don’t really care to ever hear again about what Lewis has or has not done for this team. It just doesn’t matter anymore. Zero playoff wins, that’s what he has gotten this organization and it’s fans. Its like touting how some of Dalton’s stats are comparable to some of the greats. Someone remind me how that has resulted in success. Never...
