  1. Fuuuuuuuccccc...

    Marvin acted as a de facto GM, made demands, used his success as leverage, his league connections with assistants as well. He was an established coordinator in the league with a highly successful track record with Baltimore's defense. He fully understood the caliber of players he needed to have a shot at winning consistently, and worked around the Browns whenever he could (i.e. Thurman, O'Neal, Nelson). I don't see that in Taylor, who doesn't seem to be demanding much, sitting by while they re-sign Hart, Shawn Williams and Preston Brown, and put a rookie LT in front of their rookie franchise QB. Then they paid Mixon, which will prove to be another mistake. The HC has to be responsible for major personnel moves as well. I don't think Taylor was the right person at the right time. Maybe he works as an OC, but as a HC here, no way. It's not going to work out most likely, we're just playing out the string like we did with Shula. .

    It's definitely a deeper/tougher rebuild than Marvin had, and is why I didn't think Taylor was a good fit here
  3. Fuuuuuuuccccc...

    He'll be fine, just time. It's certainly good that it's "just" the 2 tears, and not a destroyed knee joint like Palmer had. The possible upside is, that the Bengals' put more of a premium on upgrading the o-line than they otherwise would've, if he finished the season.
  4. Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

    Not sure how you pass on Sewell if he pans out pre-draft. There really isn't a position on that line that should be "set." Even Jonah at LT. If a Chase Young, Watt or Bosa type were there, then ok, but not seeing it yet.
  5. Bengals @ Dolphins Pregame Chatter

    For some reason the Bengals' just can't turn themselves around in a season or two like other teams can...must be "bad luck." Meanwhile the Bengals' are 6-31-1 since beating the Dolphins in 2018, when they were 4-1. Zac Taylor now has the worst start of any Bengals' coach in franchise history. Even Shula had 2 more wins than he does so far. Also, maybe think about signing a competent vet #2 QB for once, which is something Marvin at least put more value on (yet I feel like that issue is an MB issue where he doesn't want to allocate cap space). I remember when we laughed at the Hue Jackson Browns, now the Bengals' are that team.
  6. Giants @ Bengals Game Thread

    Giants move into 1st place with their 4-7 record. Allen magic wasn't there today.
  7. Giants @ Bengals Game Thread

    Time for some Allen magic
  8. Giants @ Bengals Game Thread

    lol, no one stands a chance behind this line, there's always someone with a breakdown in protection, not that Allen isn't terrible at this level, but it's almost comical watching him run for his life or get doinked while throwing. Just brutal stuff. We appreciate your sacrifice sir.

  12. Fuuuuuuuccccc...

    I think every 1st round pick since 2015 have missed most or all of their rookie seasons here? (or at least 6 games or more) Then there was Dre Kirk and the Andre Smith injuries prior to that. I really don't know what to make of it any more.
  13. Fuuuuuuuccccc...

    Just draft another franchise QB and alternate them on IR each year when one gets hurt behind the terrible o-line. Who else has thought of that? That way you always have a franchise QB if one gets hurt. So what if half your cap $$ goes to QB's, at least you won't have to watch Finley every season.
  14. Bengals @ Football Team Game Thread

    Burrow's been hit more than any other QB this season, and I believe more than any QB since 2000? Regardless, it's a ridiculous # (72 times this year?). It's funny how "bad luck" works, the more you do something, the more likely you're to get an unlucky result.
  15. Bengals @ Football Team Game Thread

    lol, Finley already sacked 3 times. Bengals' may want to start looking at mobile Qb's behind this line.
  16. Bengals @ Football Team Game Thread

    Trying to figure out how a flag wasn't thrown on that play - high/low hit on Burrow crushed his leg, it's ugly. Mike Brown ruins everything he touches.
  17. Bengals @ Football Team Game Thread

    Looks like a destroyed knee. Great. It's the Bengal way.
  18. Bengals @ Football Team Game Thread

    FUCK. And there you go....matter of time.
  19. Bengals @ Football Team Game Thread

    Defense! Amazing how competent they can look against other bad teams.
  20. Bengals @ Football Team Game Thread

    Great pass for AJ's first TD. Can someone stop Bullock from eating or something? What is wrong with him?
  21. Bengals @ Football Team Game Thread

    This defense, lol. This team is so bad.
  22. General Free Agency Thread

    Welp, that's that, he hurt.
  23. Dunlap traded to the Seahawks

    2 sacks including the game winner tonight. Still scratching my head a bit over that move.
  24. Bengals @ Steelers Game Thread

    Burrow's average QB rating vs Pitt and Baltimore = 71.2 He was sacked 11 times in those 2 games, threw 3 of his 5 season total of INT's. Total # of points scored in those 2 games: 13 Total # of points given up in those 2 games: 63 Beat in every facet of the game, soundly. Defense hasn't given up less than 25 points to any team other than the Chargers in week one. Can't stop 'em on defense, can't block 'em on offense. Not a good winning formula.
  25. Bengals @ Steelers Game Thread

    Yeah they didn't get any calls, but they still lost 36-10 and would've lost either way, not gonna stop Ben and those Pitt WR's with practice squad players and a patchwork 0-line full of flunkies and UFA's. Most concerning was Taylor leaving Burrow in there with a gimpy leg, and the fact Burrow couldn't seem to hit anybody after the 1st quarter (everything was high). Wear and tear, wear and tear...unnecessary at this point, save it for next season. AJ looked uninterested again at times, weak and slow most of the rest. Not sure why they keep trying to force the ball to him, you have better guys out there, he wasn't open all day. Kicking that FG was amateur HC stuff. The Bengals' aren't even in the same league with the Ravens/Steelers. Inching-up closer and closer to top 5 draft pick territory again.
