  1. Auden Tate, WR - 7th Round

    As recently as a few months ago Alexander was blathering on about how Ced was going to be a great tackle in this league, just wait and see. So when he gets cut, as we all think he will, I'm looking forward to Alexander picking him up and letting him develop in the Cowboys' system. Or that won't happen. We'll see.
  2. Iloka Released

    They let Whit walk and kept Ced. They let Reggie walk and kept Williams. This is a surprise but it shouldn’t be. Mike loves, and I mean absolutely loves, guys on that first 4 year, CBA price controlled, contract. Bates makes 480K this year. His whole 4 year deal was worth a little more, grand total, than 4 million. Once he showed he could play, that was it, goodbye George Iloka.
  3. Preseason Game 2 - Bengals vs. Cowboys

    The cowboys were smart to get rid of Dez. Now we deliver a drastic beating, and Jerra’s so wrecked over it that he has to go get some more plastic surgery to bolster his obliterated self-esteem.
  4. Now that he is no longer being coached by Alexander, and consequently being forced to pass block with the hip catch method, Bodine could turn into a different player.
  5. I hope Ced saved a lot of the cash from his first contract, I’ll say that much. His career might get up, but it will walk with a pronounced limp for the rest of his life.
  6. Training Camp - 2018

    Crazed madman Vontaze Burfict is now not practicing and is standing around at practice in a boot.
  7. I went back and watched him specifically on every play he was on the field (stalker alert). Most of his falls were when he seemed required to run and make a timing block a few steps away. Instead of doing that, he fell down.
  8. Hart looked serviceable in the starting spot last week. Ced played against backups and looked just barely ok. He fell down for no apparent reason a few times. Maybe it’s Hart by default.
  9. Mayfield - Browns made the right choice?

    He looked good. Numerous instances where he used his pocket awareness to evade the rush and find another little space to set up and get the throw off. I know he'll face some less vanilla rush packages down the road, but so far I'm guessing the Browns are thrilled.
  10. Preseason Game 1 - Bengals vs. Bears

    Lafell's early release was also a Marvin pat on the back. Let's him and his agent take their time surveying the various landing spots. Marvin likes and respects veterans. To a fault. Though in this case I think Brandon Lafell earned it, he was nothing but a great teammate while here.
  11. Mike Brown Thought of the Day

    Even though the link was dead, I just plain like the sound of it. Count me in. Roethlisberger is a first grade tool.
  12. I'll start. "When's Katie going to get me the scouting report on that gigantic rugby player?"
  13. Preseason Game 1 - Bengals vs. Bears

    O line looked a ton better. Ced got a long look. He started slow, his worst 3 plays were in his first 5 or so. After that he was decent. I think it’s the different coaching. The punch style instead of the hip catch probably serves a long armed guy like Ced. Munoz didn’t try to hide it, he approves of the more aggressive style. Alexander was a little bitch who’s long tenure here hurt this team.
  14. Preseason Game 1 - Bengals vs. Bears

    Agreed starting D looked very good.
  15. Preseason Game 1 - Bengals vs. Bears

    I assume they'll default the left side of the line to Cordy Glenn and Boling, and let's face it, Price is going to start. The right tackle and right guard spots are going to be fun to watch even in these preseason games, because they'll actually be fighting for a starting job and depth roster spots. Ced better show something.
  16. Preseason Game 1 - Bengals vs. Bears

    I’m so ready for this game. Really want to see o-line blow people off the ball.
  17. Mike Brown Thought of the Day

    "Did someone mention TJ's gramma? Oooohhh yeeeaaa...." /turns off aspiration pump, turns up voltage on defibrillator, mutes electrocardiograph, takes off pulsoximeter, tries but fails to remove compression hose, wriggles out of spinal decompression machine, throws transdermal GFR monitor on floor, unbuckles truss, unzips sensible low-cost trousers....../
  18. A Football Life

    Odd choice indeed. Should be fascinating, but it won't be. Mike probably wet his pants the first time he watched Palmer at USC. Lantern-jawed gunslinger!! Must draft!! Rocket arm, movie star good looks. Palmer pretty much was teh whole package. So it is remarkable to me that he was one of the dullest people I ever watched come through Cincy. Not sure what it was about him. He was probably just a bit of a quiet guy, not demonstrative or extroverted. Regardless, he was boring as hell, and his Football Life episode will take some enhancing, or it will be the same.
  19. Training Camp - 2018

    Ross is dropping a lot of passes. One hyperventilating gurgler I read hypothesized it was the pressure he felt after they cut Lafell. Boyd is still money. And of course AJ Green will use his freakish twistability to make Andy look good.
  20. I assume we all read cincyjungle. Kirkendall just posted a great read on Pollack. It did everything but say Alexander was a softie and coached his guys to be the same. Pollack is coaching them differently and so far, at least according to the players going up against them in practice, it shows.
  21. Training Camp - 2018

    The Bengals season doesn’t begin until we start discussing which unfortunate Bengal TJ’s dead Grammy could destroy on the field. This season is now official!
  22. Training Camp - 2018

    It sounds like he’s talking about Geno, but he’s talking about Lawson. Could be quite a pass rush this year IF Lawson can stay healthy. I’m worried about his ability to stay on the field.
  23. 2018 Reds

    The Reds took 2 out of 3 off the Indians a couple weeks back. And they didn't look like they were exactly straining to do it. Votto looked great, was completely clutch. Right now the Reds are probably the better team.
  24. The Rush Offense

    Only one day of pads, so this is a small sample size - but camp observers said running lanes were non-existent. Pass blocking looked ok though, so that’s a plus. Our running backs may have to make their own holes this year.
