  1. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    I chat on a Texans forum periodically and those guys hate their front office as much, if not more than we do. I honestly think we are in a better spot than they are. Most think Watson will be on his way out as soon as he’s able. They talk about his trade value at this point, thinking O’Brian will just get rid of him anyway... Yeah Bengals ??
  2. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    The season is no doubt going to be impacted. It’s only a matter of, to what degree ?? Based upon my own experiences and what I am briefed, my thoughts are that this is still the early end of things. The early thoughts were that when you start seeing numbers double in a 5 day period, that’s when things start getting more than concerning. If you look at and if you trust the numbers, the US has more than doubled the cases and nearly doubled the deaths over the last 4 days. I don’t think there’s any way the season isn’t impacted in a significant way at this point. Games getting canceled ?? No, not there yet but I wouldn’t be surprised if it were to happen. Just stay safe people !!!
  3. 2020 Draft

    I love Bengalszone. I appreciate you ass clowns !!!
  4. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    They couldn't keep DJ Reader and traded Hopkins because they couldn’t afford them but took on the contract of David Johnson, who hasn’t done shit in two seasons at 13 million yearly average. Go ahead and be leery of Zac Taylor, at least he’s not Bill O’Brian who’s also their GM !!
  5. Bengals take Burrow but .........

    I couldn't care less about what Melvin would or wouldn't do. Sounds like Arizona State's problem. I'll just be happy about that fact.
  6. Bengals' [other] Needs

    I just think it's too early to tell about Zac. He inherited what was left of what Melvin created and didn't have the time he has had this year. Everything from his coaching staff, to preparing for the draft, and the organizations approach to free agency this season. I will give him Burrow and another couple of seasons to push this team forward before I start pointing fingers in his direction. How many years was Melvin given ?? I'm not Zac's cheerleader, but i'd simply like to give him some time to build and manage his team. If we are still picking in the top 3 in a few years, my thought process will more than likely shift.
  7. Bengals' [other] Needs

    There’s simply not enough to go on at this point regarding Zac. He inherited Dalton and new coaches want their guy. Burrow will be in good hands and I don’t think Zac will “ruin” him. If you want to worry about Zac, it should be in his ability to surround himself with good coaches elsewhere in the team he’s maybe not as familiar. Yes defense, I’m looking at you. Now if in two years the team is still picking in the top 3-5, there’s a larger problem.
  8. Bengals take Burrow but .........

    Hoosier and I have made the same point about what that haul looks like for the Bengals and exactly the reason why the Dolphins won't do it. That being said, it will take more than three first rounders for me lift my head to acknowledge. While I agree there is a price for Burrow, it's not 3 first rounders. I'm assuming the Dolphins must feel the way we do about him. IF that's the case, my starting point is their 3 first rounders this year, along with their second round pick and next years first. Again, that's what would make me acknowledge their offer. Accepting is still another story. I was just surprised to hear local news report it so strenuously last evening. A bigger surprise was that I bothered to pay attention to anything the news has to say. I fucking hate most media outlets. I have a strong aversion to agendas and total bullshit.
  9. 2020 Draft

    I actually liked the long post, but admittedly i'm a big draft fan. Do that talking about Dalton and I may vomit on my keyboard. There aren't many o-linemen at the top of the 2nd I care for and think most will be a reach. I agree about Austin as well...pass. I've said it before but adding Jefferson at the top of the 2nd would be an absolute steal, but I don't see it happening. The only other WR I like there is Mims, but again, I see both him and Jefferson gone in the first. My big hope is that Queen is there. While I like Murray, he's not the coverage guy I would prefer to have with our LB picks. I am pretty big on Claypool and think he's going to be a MUCH better pro than he was college WR. However, I think he will go much higher than the 3rd round. If not, I want him here. Isiah Wilson would be nothing to complain about. In the 4th, there are a couple of o-linemen I like. Stenberg and Biadasz, both interior guys, but like the pick here in the 4th. If not an interior o-lineman, maybe another LB like Marcus Bailey out of Purdue. May be a bit of a reach here. If we add another DB, a guy like CB Amik Robertson would be ok as well. Duvernay at the top of the 5th is a dream come true and would have no issues with 2 WR's taken. The 6th should be wide open, but if we haven't grabbed another LB yet, I like Strnad from Wake Forest here. The 7th should be wide open as well. It would be a good time to take another o-lineman prospect for depth. There really are a bunch of back end roster guys I would have little issue with.
  10. Bengals take Burrow but .........

    Local news talking about how Miami is going to make a run at getting the #1 pick. I have already said I want Burrow and I while I’ve heard rumors of all the Miami first rounders, I will restate previous thoughts. That’s the “Start Point”. To give up Burrow, I would demand the moon.
  11. 2020 Draft

    I just hit up TDN again and this time ran into the 2nd round with no available linebackers and also saw an OT fall. While it's not the norm for my approach, I have to admit liking how this one turned out very much. 1. Joe Burrow, QB, LSU 2. Grant Delpit, S, LSU 3. Lucas Niang, OT, TCU 4. Tyler Biadasz, IOL, Wisconsin 5. Devin Duvernay, WR, Texas 6. Justin Strnad, LB, Wake Forest 7. A.J. Green, CB, Oklahoma St. With no LB's there in 2, I added a first round talent to the secondary. Niang fell to the top of the 3rd, which I loved and coupled him with an interior lineman in the 4th. Low and behold there was the guy we were talking about yesterday with Duvernay in the 5th. Strnad is a coverage linebacker and was reasonable without having to reach, which I avoided doing in the earlier rounds. A.J. Green, because I really do like his game and all the other CB's are on a 1 year deal. Practice squad material for depth.
  12. 2020 Draft

    I think it also depends on how you view the contracts recently handed out to the new guys. Bell and Waynes got 3 year deals. Everyone else got 1 year deals. So add Bell and Waynes, while losing Kirkpatrick and Dennard. Not that I care, but talking numbers. Along with that WJ3 is an UFA after this season and who knows if they will keep him? When you consider what I've mentioned a couple of times with the defensive scheme, I would not be surprised to see them add 2 DB's in the draft. There are far worse approaches then ensuring your DB's are stocked when having 4-5 on the field most of the time. Can you really have enough talented DB's on a team ??
  13. Bengals take Burrow but .........

    Reminds me of a horrible movie that I just love to watch. "Draft Day" with Kevin Costner. He was talking to his group of guys and said: " Everybody has something. Even the great ones. Right? And pretty much everyone agreed that Peyton didn't have the arm strength, that he couldn't throw deep. But somehow, none of it seemed to matter." That's where I am with the talk about Burrow's arm strength. No one cared about his arm strength when he threw 60 TD's last season right ??
  14. 2020 Draft

    I wouldn't have an issue with Duvernay either. With my son being about everything Texas, we tend to watch a lot of Longhorns games. One thing with Duvernay that you hear a lot is how he's "hard to tackle". For a guy under 6 foot tall, he's thick as well as fast. Not to mention the guys just catches everything thrown his way. Does that mean he HAS to be the pick ?? No, but I wouldn't mind him later on. I have no basis for why this thought rattles through my head, but I feel like Ross will have a solid year with Burrow throwing him the ball. I don't buy the lack of arm strength either. How many plays are ran where the expectation is for the ball to travel 50+ yards in the air ?? Hail Mary's ?? He made that amazing scramble against Georgia and while on the run uncorked a pass that travelled 40+ yards in the air on the money for a TD. I'm thinking the speed guys will appreciate not having to wait on a ball to get to them.
  15. Bengals' [other] Needs

    You don't need a crystal ball for that. Just take a look at the last 6-10 years of Bengals first round picks. Sorry Burrow...
