    *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.

    I’m with you in regards to what’s being done to minimize the spread. I’m just not going to freak out about it. I love how people are all of a sudden like, holy shit I need to wash my hands more. Really ?? Were you not doing that already ?? Did it really take an worldwide epidemic to motivate your dumbass to wash your hands ?? I go to the grocery store at night to avoid crowds and check out the milfs in yoga pants. However, I go in there tonight at 10pm and it’s like fucking Thanksgiving with lines down the aisles. What the hell ?? No ass wipe, no fucking Froot Loops, no half the shit I went in there for. Signs hung saying they have to ration cleaning supplies due to the virus. People just need to chill.

    It’s true. Tua overcame shit talent at Alabama to put up his numbers. He had no receivers or line to speak of helping him. Not like Burrow, who clearly was carried by the crew around him...

    Refuse any and all offers. Doesn’t even matter what gets offered. Take Burreaux and build out from there. If he develops into the player he looks like he could develop into, we’re top 5 QB for 10-15 years.

    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.

    In that case, the Bengals will fail everyone. Everytime. So the point is moot. And I'm not saying that isn't a real possibility no matter who they pick. But if there's one position that can have the most influential impact, it's QB right? Then ask yourself what kind of QB are you looking for and how will you get him? I have no idea if Joe Burrow is the answer but from everything I've seen so far, he's about as perfect for this organization as any player I've seen. And at this point, what do we have to lose?
  41. 2 points
    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.

    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.

    That used to be the case. These days, with the rookie salary system, it isn’t. If you miss on a top QB, you can just try again. It doesn’t cripple the organization the way it used to.

    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.

    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.

    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.
