    Just dropping by to say that the Steelers are alone in last place.

    Having had a short night to reflect (couldn't sleep, stayed up to drink in an as much ESPN and NFL network as I could since I couldn't sleep and was anticipating a happy day at work amongst all the Ravens fans...), the following:1. I absolutely will not kill them for the play selections to end the first half. I have railed for years that Marvin is too conservative there, I will not get mad at him for allowing them to try and put foot on throat. Execute better next time, but keep trying to score. That's how you get ready to win playoff games and other big games, frankly.2. The Lazor offense is a joy to watch. So creative, not just at scheming guys open, but in protecting Andy and maximizing the effectiveness of the line.3. Cool to see what Green looks like with help and someone to move him around in various sets. He is uncoverable in man in that scenario, and if they do double cover him, it makes the other weapons that much more effective.4. Uzomah looks like Eifert's replacement in real time. 5. Mixon looks like the real deal to me for sure, putting the ball and team on his back in 4th quarter for that last drive to go up eight and then to set up the clinching field goal felt right. 6. Tyler Boyd is a legit weapon. Once they start sprinkling Ross in more effectively, I see no reason for them to take their foot off the gas at any point.7. Gotta give Austin credit, that defense does look like it is trying for turnovers at all times. That's a nice change. And, while we are at it, loved the aggressiveness from Austin on the blitz call that resulted in the Williams forced fumble and recovery late in the 4th. Guenther would have had them in a shell. 8. Big kicks from Bullock again, he has earned my trust. Wish he had a bigger leg, but nice to be able to count on him when they need him.9. NO sacks allowed by the offensive line. That's quite something, considering what everyone expected and feared heading into the game...Thrilled with this start to the season. Just huge. It was fun to watch the national narrative shift in real time last night...

    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.

    I see where the Steelers and their fans are whining about the "hit" by Burfict on Brown. Is this what the NFL has come down to? Steelers complaining about a shoulder to shoulder hit on a runner? STFU. They dish for decades and just can't take it back.

    This is going to be tough for sure. Steelers will want to turn their season around and to have any chance to do that they need to win at PBS this Sunday. This is a statement game for the Bengals, pure and simple.

    One of my students is a Ravens fan. I've kindly prepared his desk before his arrival during 1st period: He always wears ugly short-sleeved purple t-shirts and I'm worried he might get cold, so I've got a nice orange and black jacket to keep him warm. I was afraid he'd be depressed after last night, so there's a Bengals clad teddy bear for him to cuddle with. I was also worried he'd be so distraught over the loss that he wouldn't have time to fix his hair this morning. No worries...there's a Bengals hat on his desk for just these purposes. Don't let anyone tell you teachers don't care.

    It only just occurred to me that one of the Bills offensive linemen who is getting roasted is none other than our boy Bodine. Haha

    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...

    Yes. If you're looking for reasons to be excited, Pollack has to be near the top of your list. Driving from Baltimore. That's some serious dedication!
  25. 2 points
    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

    The Browns just got a lot better. I think they’ll win 6-7 games this year, maybe 2 in the division.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
