    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.

    yeah that is what was saying by them, but there is always stuff they arent saying. I dont buy this one at all, not even 1 bit. this would made more sense, if he was release because he was dropping to 3rd string and wont made it to final 53 roster so he is being let go now as a favor to him so he can catch team before cut down day. letting go starter for money when off season pretty much is over doesnt made sense

    I heard it was pretty horrific. Apparently in the middle of a heated debate about lesbian dance theory, he was about to give his perspective on microagressions and BAM he blew out his Fallopian tubes. Could be the end of his career. Sad day...

    Buy it! Sources say Pollack handed Ced a bottle of Heinz Ketchup. Dude flipped it over gently tapped the “57” and appropriately condimented a plate of fries. Same source indicated when this test was done previously by Alexander, Ced inserted a straw and drank it like a soda. If true. Unquestioned progress and the light has come on.

    I am excited about the possibilities with this basic technique change It's certainly possible that our OL could be worse this year, but I think it is far more likely it'll be better. Hopefully this technique change will make it a LOT better. One even wonders if it could salvage the careers of Oogie and Fisher? Hope does indeed spring eternal. As I said last year, we will go only as far as our OL will take us - and its the same this year

    Mayock has spoken. Bengals take Ragnow. Mcglenchey and Nelson off the board. Wynn, Hernandez, and Daniels on the board but taken in the first. That would buck some historical trends with 5 interior linemen going that soon So I guess you can say it’s better to Rag-Now instead of Rag-later _ rim shot, tip your bar tenders and waitresses, I’m here all week.

    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

    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.

    15 years is just a peek. A meer glimpse into the fortune we hold in our hands. You have to give Marvin credit for one thing. He can stand proudly on his .500 record and zero playoff wins and actually get a new contract. It makes me understand the sheer stupidity of Mike Brown.

    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.

    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!

    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

    Agreed. Just as victims of a tragedy, or survivors of a terrible disease, have a bond, we as Bengals fans have a bond. Come to think of it, it's the same bond.

    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.

    Listening to ML on the Monday press conference right now. Just get the f**k out of here, Marvin. Tired of your s**t. Lame and f**king stale. Seriously, how many more times can a human be subjected to the same s**t over and over. For the sake of your health and the sanity of the city, GTFO Marvin. Just GTFO.

    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.
