  1. Marvin Fired - 12/31/2018

    I’ve never said we didn’t have a talent problem, I said there is still talent on this team (see players mentioned) and that saying the Atkins and Dunlap are aging seems like bullshit. Let them him UFA and see what happens. The difference in 4-3 vs 3-4 is skewed when the defense has run out the nickel the majority of the time. Someone remind me again how many times we have said getting both Hubbard and Lawson on the field more would be a good thing. Sticking with a true base 4-3 will require all new linebackers because what we have left sucks. A 3-4 would allow DE’ish guys with speed to play the OLB spots. I will stand ready to say I was off if I’m reading things incorrectly, but I would be more intrigued with them making a switch at this point. I expect them to suck anyway. Build for the future.

    I call bullshit. Tell me a team that wouldn’t take Atkins and Dunlap for another 3-4 years. There is young talent with Lawson and Hubbard as well. You can throw Jordan Willis in that mix as well. What the fuck ever...
  3. Changing Things Up With Free Agents / Draft

    I didn’t say I was expecting it. I’d rather doubt it. I’m just thinking what would really help this team. I think Ju’waan Taylor and they think Bobby Hart.

    Like I said, I am just happy he's been given the ability to make the selection that fits him best. I'll worry about whomever the selection is, once they start playing and we see what happens on the field. Until that point in time, it's hard to say one person will suck or be great.
  5. Changing Things Up With Free Agents / Draft

    We are a tad over 3 week away from free agency. My big curiosity is if they give Taylor the same level of autonomy with free agents as with coaching ?? Ju'Waan Taylor at RT would be an amazing start. Jordan Hicks at LB would be another great addition. It would be nice to see the Bengals take a scaled down version of free agency that the Rams did to put them in the Super Bowl. I say scaled down because I still believe this team does in fact have talent on it. A skilled RT and LB would help both sides of the ball and set up the draft very well.

    I would have liked to see what Del Rio would have done with the defense, but if Taylor doesn't want him, then screw Del Rio. I'm good with him having the autonomy to bring in someone that fits (even if they are a no body) then to simply fill a slot by being forced. Yeah, I didn't think teams could block a promotion either. Glenn is considered an up and coming coaching candidate. Marquand Manuel ?? What's your thoughts on him AMPHAR ?? Can't say as he does anything for me as a candidate.

    Use to be the Bengals were used by free agent players to garner a better deal elsewhere. Now college coordinators are just saying NO to go back to the same deal where they came from. Not that I really care all that much, because I always kind of thought he'd hire the dude from the Rams. That being said, it's really not a good look for our new coach.
  8. Marvin Fired - 12/31/2018

    I would be good with a switch to the 3-4 and have been advocating that. I also believe we have personnel that fit that scheme better and will allow for more talent to find the field. Getting both Hubbard and Lawson on the field together with Geno and Dunlap is a win win to me from a pass rush perspective. We would need to draft LB early (first 4 rounds) twice in my opinion. That and address in free agency. That doesn't strike me as a problem, as we would need to do that regardless of scheme.
  9. ArmyBengal's 2019 Mock Draft #1

    Something looks familiar between mine done on 4 February and Charlie Campbell's from Walterfootball done a couple days ago. Check out his 1st three picks for the Bengals: http://walterfootball.com/draft2019charlie.php
  10. Positivity Thread - What to look forward to

    What to look forward to ?? How about the Steelers without both Le'veon Bell AND Antonio Brown in the 2019 season ?? Yeah, they got good production from their other RB, but Brown trying to force his way out by demanding a trade is priceless.
  11. Changing Things Up With Free Agents / Draft

    What ?? You mean us fans don't know it all ?? BWAAAAHAAAAHAAAAA, whatever !!! We are a bunch of football gurus around this joint. That being said, If I could only pick one QB, it would be Jones out of Duke. I'm a Buckeyes fan and don't want Haskins either. Certainly don't want 5'9 Kyler Murray either. After them, it doesn't appear good. Might be the worst QB draft class in history.
  12. Alliance of American Football

    Yeah was going to check YouTube for some clips, but can't say as I'm really all that interested. I heard someone explain that these guys look to be on the cusp of being NFL practice squad players. Quality of play like the 2nd half of a preseason game. Can't say as that inspires me to watch any of it. Then again Marvin appears to be the perfect TV analyst for that league. "He's really going to have to execute better if they want to win this game" "That was clearly not a fumble. I still think the coach should challenge that play." "4th and 1 at their 45 and down by 6 with 1:30 left on the clock. Punt !!!"
  13. Changing Things Up With Free Agents / Draft

    As the Mock Draft Turns..... Just watched McShay's 2.0 from last week and he has us taking Cody Ford even though Devin White is still on the board. Stated you just can't have a player like White sitting there at #12 and pass on him. I agree we need o-line help, but not more than a guy like White at #11. On a side note, he didn't have QB Daniel Jones going in the first round at all. I would hope at that point, they would be trying to make a move to grab him up, but surely wouldn't be the only team.
  14. Here was something I thought about last night when I was unable to sleep. (Yeah, I was thinking this at 2:10am) What are some of the greatest 3 piece rock bands ?? I came up with Rush, Nirvana, The Police, ZZ Top, and Green Day, as I saw them all in concert at one point or another. Then I looked it up and there are a bunch more 3 piece rock bands, but totally missed one of my all time favorites. TRIUMPH !!! That's right, I said it, Triumph !!! Being a lead singer isn't enough ?? Great, take on both lead and rhythm guitar along with that. Loved these guys growing up. Thanks to my uncle for taking me to concerts when I was young. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCWj8Nz5DUg
