  1. Offensive Line

    Well again he's the 3rd player/vet now, who's had some sort of odd "I quit" related issue here, not just him, tells me therre's a bit more to it. He told the coach to cut him, I don't think we'll get his best effort from here on out. Can't say I'm impressed with how Turnerr is handling his players.
  2. Jaguars @ Bengals Pregame Chatter

    That's the 3rd o-lineman who's retired/quit or in this case, doesn't want to play here apparently. Others haven't developed (Price, Jordan). Turner seems like garbage indeed. This coaching staff seems to be pieced together with bad spare parts. The injuries don't surprise me, I said before that no one's gutting-out any injuries on this team, they're going to take their time coming back, in particular vets.
  3. 2nd Round Pick: Drew Sample, TE, Washington

    No one had a 2nd round grade on Sample, and so far he's proving why. His lack of impact of any kind, regardless of how bad the o-line is, says they should've picked any # of other position players who could've added quality depth or challenged for a starting spot. "Maybe" that changes at some point, but so far, he and Pratt both look like throw-away's. You gotta get more out of your top 3 picks, more often, they don't. I'm done waiting around and making excuses for the Bengals, they don't deserve it.
  4. Jaguars @ Bengals Pregame Chatter

    Can't disagree TJ, the drafts have been awful, and it's a big reason why they have only won 23 of the last 63 games since mid-2015. On top of that I'm not impressed with Taylor at all so far, what has he done? Absolutely nothing. So far he's just another Shula.
  5. 2nd Round Pick: Drew Sample, TE, Washington

    Looks like another wasted 2nd round pick at this point.
  6. Is This the ‘90s All Over Again?

    I would trade him in a heartbeat at this point if someone offered-up a high enough pick. I don't see any reason to hang onto some of these aging, 30+ year old guys here right now. Normally I wouldn't say that, but they have to stock-up on draft picks and clear cap space for younger, better talent somehow.
  7. Is This the ‘90s All Over Again?

    I have yet to see a single play all season long so far, where a LB broke-up a running play at or behind the LOS, and they probably had their best game of the year yesterday. I DO remember seeing Vigil getting literally run over at the LOS last week. This is what Burfict did so well for a while - and what they miss. Thurman was very good at it too. I do not believe you can win games in the NFL without some sort of run-stopping, play-making leader/hammer at one of the LB spots, at least. It's why Pitt skipped over the Bengals' to get Bush, who is proving to be a great pick, and then went out and traded a 1st round pick for Fitzpatrick at S. They value LB's and Safeties. Mike Brown does not, and his record reflects that.
  8. Is This the ‘90s All Over Again?

    He's done a fine job of upholding the tradition with his play on the field.
  9. Jaguars @ Bengals Pregame Chatter

    Agreed, let's keep that worst-case-scenario in the top 5, anything beyond that is more of the same IMO (i.e. ""With the 7th pick in the draft, the Bengals' select Andre Smith, Offensive Tackle, Alabama," "with the 6th pick in the draft, the Bengals' select Cedric Obegui, Offensive Tackle, Texas A&M" "The Bengals' select Billy Price," "The Bengals' select John Ross" etc..., ). I want to limit the chance for error as much as humanly possible with this franchise, they are borderline incompetent when it comes to drafting and scouting, and always have been (squirrel finds nut every so often, or for a couple of good years once in a while though).
  10. Jaguars @ Bengals Pregame Chatter

    I expect a Dead Cat Bounce at some point when AJ and/if Glenn return, especially games at home vs beatable teams like the Jags or even the Browns, and of course Miami. I predicted they'd win 3 or 4 games, still looking like that to me unless more injuries happen (Kirkpatrick's injury is a non-factor IMO, Webb might even be an upgrade for now). It'll be a real challenge to beat out Miami for the #1 pick, not sure they can do it. Hell at this point the Browns may end-up with a worse record if they keep it up, or the Jags.
  11. Jaguars @ Bengals Pregame Chatter

    Right now there's Tua and Herbert, and then everybody else pretty much.
  12. Bengals @ Ravens Game Thread

    No challenge by Taylor on the fumble that should've been was a big mistake, as was Dalton's red zone INT. Questionable call to kick FG on 4th and and goal from the 5. John Miller left with a groin injury and didn't return. Redmond took his place.
  13. Bengals @ Ravens Game Thread

    Mixon and Bernard totaled 14 yards on 12 carries COMBINED today.
  14. Bengals @ Ravens Game Thread

    Slow death. 0-6. #tankfortua
  15. Bengals @ Ravens Game Thread

    Another stop. Hubbard was a good draft pick.
  16. Bengals @ Ravens Game Thread

    Why wasn't that fumble challenged? Good lord.
  17. Bengals @ Ravens Game Thread

    Tate and Mixon made some nice plays to get them where they were, and Dalton throws an INT, all on him.
  18. Bengals @ Ravens Game Thread

    Yeah that poor bastard.
  19. Bengals @ Ravens Game Thread

    Uh, that wasn't Mike Brown, lol
  20. Bengals @ Ravens Game Thread

    A defensive stop! Bates actually having a pretty good day so far in coverage.
  21. Bengals @ Ravens Game Thread

    1st quarter totals: Dalton: 0 for 3, 0 yards, 39.6 QBR Mixon: 2 for 4 yards, 2 ypc. Auden Tate: 0 yards on 3 targets, 3 incompletions
  22. Bengals @ Ravens Game Thread

    How do you just stand there and let a guy roll into your legs like that? Wake up, geezus.
  23. Bengals @ Ravens Game Thread

    Might be the worst defense in Bengals' history, I'm trying to think of one that's actually worse than this one. I have no idea how all of a sudden guys like Jackson and Bates suck either. Maybe we shouldn't be surprised when they just decided to re-sign Brown and do little else, and Taylor had to pick-up a coordinator off the scrap heap at the last minute.
  24. Time to begin the rebuild

    Eh AJ isn't going anywhere any ways, he definitely has value still, but right now it'd be nice to see him make it through the rest of the season when he comes back first. They absolutely need multiple 1st/2nd round picks next year if they want to improve, in addition to spending some $$ in FA for a top tier starter at LB, SS or on the o-line. Not sure if they're capable of, or willing, to do that.
  25. Time to begin the rebuild

    I wouldn't re-sign him at this point, let him walk unless you come-up with an opportunity to get a 1st round pick for him - which I can't believe anyone is going to do for anyone on this team. But it's the Bengals', and they'll sink money into him for another 3-5 years and he'll spend most of it on IR while his game declines, then throw their hands up talking about "bad luck" and "injuries" again.
