    Agree with the average starter comment. My biggest, well, not quite gripe but head-scratcher is that they decide to swap Dre for Trae, the latter basically being a slightly younger version of the former. Which is a sort of improvement, I guess. But also a sort of deck chair shuffling. Just have to see if it works out.

    Better tackling, with younger legs

    Could be. OTOH there’s been some suggestion of moving Bell full time to LB since he’s strong vs the run but seen as a liability in coverage. Just have to see how it plays out.

    he has average coverage skills for a safety, but for a LB his skills would be a big upgrade to our team.

    Let me share part of what "From where i'm sitting" looks like.

    MOST ALL Detroit Michigan hospitals have taken measures to prepare, by doubling not only the regular inpatient beds, but the critical care beds as well.
    The result ??  They experienced a surge in patients in (JUST ONE DAY) and not only do they and other hospitals in the area not have enough beds, they do not have enough ventilators for the critically ill patients and are closing their doors to any new patients due to the healthcare system being overwhelmed.

    They estimated tripling beds still would have fallen short and have determined that the virus is much stronger than what people are anticipating.

    more testing means more positives.  There is no way around getting this virus, just flattening the curve.  Which also elongates it.  The same amount of people will get it, it will just take longer for it to play out, so medical supplies can hopefully be produced to help as many as possible.

    positives don't mean hospitalizations, at least it shouldn't.  The majority of us have either had it or will have it and need no medical assistance.  Please help the people that actually need medical help and don't be tested unless you feel like total crap.  These people with mild cold symptoms that have to be tested are wasting supplies, unless they have a compromised immune system.

    It seems as if most of the American public have become pussies and have no common sense.

    Well, we didn't have any choice in the matter and had to move the vacation.
    Half the things we wanted to do in Hawaii were closed due to the virus and Delta was actually recommending cancellation as well.
    Damnedest thing ever.  If i'm being honest, i'm kind of happy we aren't going right now.  Things are too chaotic at work.
    Oh, if all things are the same, i'd rather the coronavirus, NOT come at me.  I'm cool...

    Mem,
    Burrow, Thomas, and Harrison would be enough for me to stop watching whatever came after that point.
    I would be too happy to be concerned.

    hoping things calm down quickly, been planning this trip for two years.

    All these teams actively signing free agents, making trades, doing all those things required to improve and balance a roster.  
     

    Just seems like a lot of work though, doesn’t it? Mike needs a nap.

    probably regretting this post today?

    Going through LAX next month on my way to Hawaii. I was thinking about cancelling things out. Then I realized I really don’t give a shit.

    Im taking the fam in May, warm up the beaches for us!

    Major influx of talent.   Many will tell you Tua is the better QB to boot.     I love Joe Burrow too so I'm not going to trash him to make a point about Tua.

    The overall point is this team needs a major influx of talent.   

    This franchise hasn't landed an impact player from another team since.....???? Reggie Nelson? Pac Man?     You see a draft haul like that and it's crazy to think about.

    Now if we could count on them landing 3/4 free agents that would fill holes.   Different story.

    I have a bad feeling about Tua, nothing based in facts,  just a feeling.

     

    I'm hoping we stay away from him.


  8. 1         Burrow        

    33       Patrick Queen LB

    65       Lucas Niang OL

    104     Ezra Cleveland OL

    147     James Proche  WR

    180    Evan Weaver   LB

    215    Josiah Deguara  TE

     

    Weaver may not be there that late, if not either A J Green CB or Lamar Jackson CB at 180

     

    Defense needs to be shored up with FA LB before the draft.

    Any further thoughts now that the draft has ended and we've added players ??

    If we manage a season where the injury bug doesn't take a massive bite out of our asses, this could be an interesting year.
    The more I hear Zac himself talk, as well as how the players talk about him, the team seems to have a different (better) vibe to it.

    Oh, knowing I'm a fan of the preseason games, I was pretty pumped up to get row 1 seats on the 50 in the upper deck for $17 bucks a pop.
    It will be the 3rd preseason game and hopefully the starters get the traditional more playing time against the Giants in that game.
    ArmyBengal Jr. is closing in on being a teenager now, but we still enjoy the games together.  Can't wait for the season !!!

    Have fun, we can't make a game this year

    Imagine a two tight ends set, with Eifert (or Uzomah) as the pass catching TE and then Sample blocking for Mixon to run - throw in AJ and Ross and boy am I loving the thought of that offence

    I like the idea of three TE sets, for the running game and a power/big target sub package for play action short yardage passing.  Eat the clock!!

    Still don't know why people are saying anything about the Steelers stealing one from the Bengals.
    People do realize he played in a 3-4 at Michigan that would translate well to the Steelers drafting him right ??
    People do realize we don't run a 3-4 here in Cincinnati right ??

    Who gives a fuck about Devin Bush ??

    They had to use 3 picks to get 1 player, no problem

    I would have been happy with either Bush or Williams.  I just hope now that Bush has the same kind of success in Pittsburgh as TTUN has had for years against my team.


  12.  Just for fun

     

    Sample combine #'s

    6'5" 255 lbs. arms 33 3/8" hands 95/8" 40 time 4.71 3-cone 7.15

    Eifert combine #'s

    6'5" 250 lbs. arms 33 1/8" hands 9 1/8" 40 time 4.68 3-cone 6.92

     

    I don't see a lot of difference in the measurables, so may be they can teach the kid how to become a receiving TE.  Sample is a little bigger/longer, Eifert is a little faster/quicker.
