  1. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    Forgot about Ford, didn't realize the Bengals' rated him that high (no problem with that, just didn't know). Could play RG or RT and start from day one most likely.
  2. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    Yahoo Sports mock has them taking Bush at #11 and Taylor going as high as #5., White #6. The way things go usually, that wouldn't surprise me a bit either I guess. Wishful thinking to get the best OT or LB in the draft at 11. Hell I'd probably draft Jonah Williams before Bush, just seems like more of a reach to take Bush there. Haskins should be there, so that could be interesting, but I haven't heard a thing about the Bengals' showing interest in him (which is surprising, considering he's the most Goff-like QB out of the top 4, and you know how MB likes his Buckeyes).
  3. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    Jawaan Taylor visit this past weekend, which is who I would predict they end up with, if White isn't there. If they pass on White, they're idiots, but I assume someone will nab him ahead of the Bengals, even if it means a trade. I just hope they don't sit him behind Hart, instead of say, moving Hart to RG, or to the bench if Taylor earns it. Jonah Williams might be a better G/C than T, so figure Jawaan gets the nod. Either would be fine really.
  4. RIP Forrest Gregg

    Remember his SuperBowl year here, and when he was hired (was around 10-11 yrs old), RIP, along with Wyche, one of the only great Bengals' coaches.
  5. Walton

    Glad they cut him, if it were just marijuana possession I'd probably feel differently, but his 3 arrests and running away from an arrest etc..., are too much. At least Taylor "seems" to hold the players to a higher standard when it comes to representing themselves in public than Marvin did (also see Burfict release). That said you wonder if he were a more notable player if they would've done the same thing, after all they did wait until he was arrested for the third time.

    Bengals' hosting Josh Allen. God knows why they'd trade that far up in the draft to get another edge/pass-rushing specialist on their roster. Hubbard and Dunlap and whoever else are fine for now, when you need 3 LB's, another DE, no matter how good, isn't going to help your defense much. Even at this point I cannot believe this team settled for re-siging Preston Brown and have done nothing else at LB, other than release Burfict. You have, literally, the worst group of LB's top-to-bottom in the entire league, and you do nothing. Zac Shula, I hope you are saving your salary.
  7. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    The Bengals' will probaby give him a bonus.
  8. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    I don't know why they signed Hart to starting RT money so early in FA if they felt they very well may draft an OT at #11 this year. MB doesn't like to eat first round contract money, nor FA money of course, and you're not drafting a "project" at #11. That Hart signing eludes me still, just a dumb move as I can't imagine anyone else would pay him that much money or that he was even in any kind of serious demand elsewhere. Why not keep your options open or sign him to an incentive deal for a year? Are you really worried about losing one of the league's worst RT's? Really? You just traded for Glenn, and while a future LT should be in order, or at least better depth than Boling, is it that urgent yet? Basically just explaining why I think they "could" go QB still. Brown's endorsement of Dalton recently was hardly full of praise and confidence as well: Brown quote from Yahoo Sports:
  9. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    Like this one? https://www.yahoo.com/sports/postfree-agency-nfl-mock-draft-19-surprise-landing-spot-for-qb-dwayne-haskins-154119217.html I'm telling you, do not put it past Mike Brown and Taylor to pick a QB at #11, it still would not surprise me at all. I'd probably rather have a Jonah Williams, as it looks more and more like White will go before them, but i'm pretty sure Taylor (who I have doubts will have success here) is going to want his own guy that's ideal for his system - Dalton, ultimately, is not for a variety of reasons.
  10. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    The NFL, frankly, is getting worse and worse the more commercialized and greedy they get. The new PI rule will drag games out longer and allow for more commercials as well, the one thing I agree with MB on when he spoke out against it. And yeah, the new draft format sucks, frankly, the stupid over-coverage of the top 3 picks the entire first night (stupid human interest B.S. usually) gets boring fast and I usually just keep the TV rolling with no audio like I do most sporting events these days, including the SB. I can't even stand to watch 5 min's of ESPN unless there's a game on, and even then, it's no audio and I'll go insane with boredom from all of the commercials and sideline reporter nonsense if I don't have something else to occupy me during all of the breaks.
  11. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    Yeah agree. White would be my pick followed by the OT's. A TE or a QB, based on what they did in FA at this point, would not make much sense.
  12. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    Their modest FA signings mean, IMO, they pretty much need to hit the jackpot at positions of dire need with their first 3 picks, if they want to win more than 6 games again - always a long shot and one of the constant shortcomings of this franchise over the years. It's possible, but it's not exactly what teams who really want to win do every year. It's my biggest issue with the Bengals', they never seem to care enough about winning, no competitive fire in the proverbial belly from the Brown family, more concerned with being "competitive" enough to sell season tickets and stay in the black year in and year out.
  13. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    I'm a little leery of Bush despite the fact the guy is an amazing athlete - but would be more than happy if they prevail with sound minds and draft any of those guys. The release of Burfict so early almost seems to telegraph the fact they're going LB with #11. I don't know how you pass-up White if he's there though. Re-signing Dennard is also smart.
  14. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    Yeah I have a feeling Ced will be out of the league after this season. Just seems like an unmotivated player collecting checks. Hell I'm surprised the Bengals' didn't resign him to a 3 year deal.
  15. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    Saw that. Why? It's like 2018 all over again....sign a few mediocre FA's and resign bad or oft-injured players who can't stay on the field. I wouldn't be surprised if they cut and resigned Burfict at this point. I swear Mike Brown has taken over the reigns again, now that he has a new patsy HC.
  16. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    Lol on the Miller signing. How many loser, cast-off Bills' players does this team need? I mean "maybe" he turns it around some and is an "ok" player, maybe. But is that the best they can do? 2 cast-offs to make-up the right side of their line with a cast-off position coach? Fuck this franchise. Seriously I'm just bored at this point. Whatever.
  17. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    I can't remember the last "impact" player the Bengals' have signed in FA, a guy in his prime they have to over-pay and compete for, to get (even if it means not resigning one of your lame vets and going with a drafted rookie instead with more upside). Other teams do it all the time. At least Marvin traded for guys like O'Neal and Nelson once in a while, and was forced to roll the dice with high-upside morons like Pac Man, Thurman, Burfict, and Henry, that no one else wanted. Right now it almost seems like MB is calling the personnel shots again.
  18. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    PFF had Webb ranked 17 spots lower than Dennard. Hart is a dud, a placeholder. Brown is garbage in today's NFL, too slow to cover and never makes plays. So far the Bengals' continue their fan ruse by not getting better in FA, arguably they've gotten worse, at best they maintain status quo with sub-par players. I don't expect much more until the draft from this franchise. A good draft will help, but it won't save them from 3rd or 4th place in the division. Nothing has changed so far other than coaches and scheme. And it remains to be seen if those are upgrades or not, especially on defense. IF you enjoy mediocre-to-bad football, then you're an ideal Bengals' fan willing to excuse everything they do.
  19. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    Sure. Diligence with all of the top candidate's and/or their schools. Awful lot of QB attention though, when any other year they wouldn't bother much with the top QB's.
  20. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    It's gotten kind of bizarre. Over-paying Shawn Williams is another example. Signing the stars is easy, it's these other personnel moves they make that sink them. They are just not a smart franchise, held back by a bad owner who's philosophy is out-dated and ignorant.
  21. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    Looks like Taylor is pretty interested in QB's.
  22. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    Aargh, guess I missed this:
  23. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    Yeah they gave up way too much for him, and he's still owed a lot of $$ in the future. But he and Landry will be tough on the same team. The Browns aren't fooling around. The Bengals will counter by re-signing Tony McRae and Preston Brown, just wait!
  24. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    Dude we got Hart.
  25. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    You can't expect people to be excited about, or even "ok" with it though. It's more of the same bad personnel decisions they've made a lot of, the last 2-3 years in particular. I don't understand why he cost them $7 mil a year, not sure who else would pay him near that much. I'd rather have had Kroft back, and overpay him.
