  1. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    I warned you all about Turner.
  2. Marvin Fired - New Coaches

    With the last two hires (Duffner and that other guy) announced this morning, their total on the coaching staff is 22. That is...a LOT for this franchise. My issues with the Turner hire aside, hard to argue that this is not indeed a real change to how the front office has approached things in the past in terms of the coaching staff. Hoping it is an harbinger of a new approach to free agency too.
  3. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    There are roughly 15 names being talked about as top 10 worthy based on the really outstanding collective performances at the combine - and that doesn't include the 2 QBs likely to go top 10. The Bengals will almost certainly have 3 or 4 names available to them at 11 that all can be difference makers right away. Hopefully they don't overthink this and fuck this up when the time comes.

    Like I said when it happened, at least it's new. If they are going to fail, they will fail in a new way, and that will be interesting, even if still a fail. It also helps that QB class is loaded the next few years and if this goes very badly, they may back into Tua or the Oregon QB next year, or the Clemson guy two years from now.

    He played a ton of snaps last year at LB.

    From everything reported, it is as simple as he and Taylor simply did not mesh. Hard to get mad at Taylor being given the autonomy to make that call.

    Time for a break again. Later.
  8. Marvin Fired - New Coaches

    I mean, Turner has gotten shit results in his previous stops, but, yeah, anytime you can call your reputation into question for a shitty bullying misogynstic friend, you gotta do it.

    If you follow me on twitter or follow Bengals beat writers tweets and responses or Goodberry you've seen my pointed meltdown over it. Calls everything Taylor said on Tuesday into question. Taylor either a liar or a fool.

    Thanks for that find.

    Draft a RT. Put westerman in for Redmond. Let Hopkins go back to center where he was playing so well when Price got hurt and make price fight for the starting job and fulfill guru label.
  13. Marvin Fired - New Coaches

    Bill Callahan has been in Taylor’s orbit too. given that pollack was apparently the prime reason Redmond kept playing and westerman couldn’t get a shot - I am thrilled to see Taylor being given full latitude to re-make this staff.

    Peace to you and your family Wisk. Billy will be missed.

    Brief thoughts if it is indeed Taylor: John Harbaugh’s resume didn’t look all that impressive when ravens picked him either. Special teams coach for the Eagles. Tomlin only had one year as a d-coordinator when picked. Just saying. No idea if he will be anywhere near as good as those two have been, but thin resume doesn’t bother me. Sam Wyche’s resume was hella thin too before he was hired. Point is, either you have what it takes , or you don’t. I don’t think there is any one path to success as head coach. David Shula sucked because he was terrible, not because he had wrong experience. Wyche worked out because he absolutely had the creative flair and personality to succeed, none of which you could fairly see coming off of one year head coaching at IU and anonymous asst coaching in NFL for years before that (learning under Bill Walsh). Taylor may be a disaster, but, he could also be quietly inspired. At least he isn’t Gase, or Hue, or Joseph, or some other warmed over more of the same coach. This team and org needs shock paddles. Taylor is at least that. And if he is an abject disaster, then maybe in two years when he is fired he gifts the new coach with the #1 pick in 2021 and we get the Clemson qb. But this is as interested as I have been as a bengals fan in a long time, in any event.
