  1. Supreme Court Takes NCAA to the Woodshed

    This case really got ol’ Boofus worked up.

    I remember that. Just brutal. Good to see him again.
  5. Bengals Hire Scout

    I believe they’re up to 3 now. It’s a new world…
  6. Yes, the Bengals Actually Are Snakebit

    You...might be on to something there. Two of the three worst seasons listed are 2018 and 2020, and the Bengals installed new fake turf prior to...the 2018 season. https://www.bengals.com/news/new-turf-being-installed-at-paul-brown-stadium-20624323 A minute of googling didn't reveal any immediate issues with the Shaw turf and maybe (probably?) it's just coincidence, but still, I'd take a look at it.
  7. Yes, the Bengals Actually Are Snakebit

    There’s still time… It’s the headline writer in me. Used to drive my editor nuts…then I became the editor and drove the readers nuts. Yeah, the things about injuries being basically random and the Bengals consistently getting hit badly by them are…in some tension. If I were in charge it’s definitely something I’d want to look into.

    Thursday doesn’t even start.
  9. General Free Agency Thread

    So just for kicks ‘n’ giggles I was looking at the team salary cap page over on sportrac and it’s…very un-Bengal-like this year. I’m sure everyone knows they’ve been a bit more aggressive this off-season but it really shows up here. Biggest cap hit on the team? Trae Waynes at nearly $16 million. Now, I haven’t looked but I’d be willing to bet that the top cap hit being a FA has happened before…but how about the top 3? Next two guys are Reader at $13.5 million and Hendrickson at $12.5 million. Between those three that’s more than 21% of the total cap And we’re not done. At No. 9 you have Ogunjobi, then Bell, Hilton, Reiff and Awuzie at 11, 12, 14 and 15 respectively. And of course Reiff would be more like 7 if his deal was straight up and not fudged with a void year So in total, 8 of the top 15 cap hits this year, including the top 3, are all FAs. They amount to around 35% of the cap. I don’t know if it will work but it’s tough to say they aren’t trying.
  10. Round 1 Pick: Ja’Marr Chase, WR, LSU

    Just in case anyone wanted to know how his rookie deal breaks down: https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/cincinnati-bengals/jamarr-chase-72384/ Basically 4 years for a little under $31 million fully guaranteed with a little under $20 million SB. Cap hits of roughly 6-7-8-10. Fifth year option of course.
