  1. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    Definitely better FO than the Texans. Texans are a dumpster fire without even having a reason.
  2. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    I’m in a war with these oak trees. They hang onto their leaves until April sometimes, makes no sense. They’re trying to clog my downspouts, but I wasn’t born yesterday. Sunbelt Rentals has an industrial scissor lift they claim can get any fat guy 6 feet off the ground, so O’Brien is a candidate if for some unforeseen reason I can’t get my ultimate candidate which is, of course, Bobby Hart.
  3. 2020 Draft

    Ha ha! You guys are awesome. BengalsZone is a nice little respite every day for me. This pandemic has changed daily life, but it’s great that I can still come here and 1. Figuratively kick Mike Brown in the balls, and 2. Get figuratively kicked in the balls by all of you.

    O’Brian has totally blown it. And now that he’s been portrayed in the media, rightly or wrongly, as a racist, well, they’re going to have a terrible time getting players. Not just one race or the other, there are just a lot of guys regardless of race who won’t want to be around that kind of thinking. He’s finished, they should just get it over with and move on now.

    Get a room you two, JFC.
  6. Bengals' [other] Needs

    Come on now. They’ve had their ups and downs. I think their biggest failing was refusing to offer and spend money, and by that I mean in free agency. And by that I mean instead of going out and finding a good veteran center in FA and paying him, they endure 8 years of Ghuichuic and Bodine, two of the worst centers in the league. They usually kept their low level players for way too long, when cutting them and finding a replacement/upgrade in FA was the smart thing to do. I recognize their attempts to make a FA splash. Lavernious. Cole and Antonio Bryant come to mind. They usually got burnt. But all the flops in the world don’t justify cheaping out and hanging onto your dregs or signing someone else’s (Bobby Hart).
  7. Bengals' [other] Needs

    Very different attitude from the players when compared to that displayed under the Marvin regime. Under Zac I see genuine enthusiasm and effort. Under Marvin it was hard to tell. I kind of saw it as a general bemusement, resignation, and a yearly undercurrent of “oh, they brought Pac-Man back again, wtf.”
  8. Bengals take Burrow but .........

    Marvin: (nonstop mindless clapping) Players: “We’re using Zoom for our scheme install meeting? How do we do this? When?” Marvin: (nonstop mindless clapping)
  9. Bengals take Burrow but .........

    No offer is good enough. He’s potentially such a game changer that there isn’t enough in a draft to trade him. If Miami offered their whole draft, I’d laugh in their face (then slow motion walk with my whole crew towards the camera while fiery explosions erupt behind us, all while a tasty Van Halen song blares, that’s right motherfuckers, Van Halen!
  10. Bengals take Burrow but .........

    Target heat maps. Gettin’ into it now!
  11. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    He we inked a new deal, and Maybin tallied some tackles. That writer has the sportswriters dictionary.
  12. Bengals' [other] Needs

    Wish I had a crystal ball to see who was going to get hurt first, that’d dictate what position we take in round 2. I’d say BPA as long as it’s not a QB, RB, or DE.
  13. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    If nothing else, culture change. Send Marvin’s guys down the road.
  14. Bengals' [other] Needs

    Good points by Mem above. Our coaches got up close involvement with these guys, everyone else is getting social distanced.
  15. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    Fuck. I’m fucking going crazy in this house.
  16. 2020 Draft

    Very tough grader, you must not know how hard it is to run an nfl team.
  17. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    Bengals: “We have radically changed for the 2020 season, revamped our roster through free agency, and will have a tremendous new quarterback.” NFL: “LOL, we’re cancelling this motherfucker.”
  18. First it was the Bears, now the Colts and Patriots are jumping in. Allegedly. I’d take a 3rd rounder and wish Andy all the success in the world. He really is a fine human being.
  19. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    I hear you. My 16 year old is a Pats fan. For years it’s been “Brady’s so great, blah blah blah, ha ha Andy Dalton chokes.” Now I’m loving this possible Andy to the Pats talk. I frequently ask him if the Pats signed Dalton yet. No? Well they’re gonna! Loving it.
  20. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    I got a pretty bad splinter two days ago.
  21. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    Lol. Army, you better figure out how to give your son a good pep talk. Texans inexplicably throwing guys out the door. Thag stat about us spending 49 mill over 5 years on new FA guys, then 127 mill this year on new FA guys, we’ll that mind boggling.
  22. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    Pro Football Focus had Bynes as the number 6 rated linebacker in the NFL at the end of the season last year (per Lance McAlister). That sounds pretty good.
  23. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    Vigil struggled. Eifert was fragile. I see this as a positive. Zac is changing the culture, something I’ve seen other coaches do, but never expected it here. If you’re not performing, goodbye and we’ll try somebody else.
  24. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    Amazing dichotomy between our response in Ohio and where I am right now, south central Texas. In Ohio, lots of people in masks, little traffic, very noticeable change in daily life. I was in a grocery store today in Texas, no masks, neighbors stopping to chat in the aisles, like life was normal. Very chatty people at the checkout. Just a very different level of stress. One noticeable thing - signs by bread and eggs saying just take one please. But none of the shelves were stripped like they are at home.
