  1. Redskins Preseason Glorified Practice

    I was at the game (and almost no one else was / maybe MAYBE 15,000 in the stadium). i dont know that you can take anything away from the first few drives for the offense - the amount of penalty flags was staggering - there was no flow to the game. And, per goodberry, several of the holding calls were extreme bullshit. So they were behind on down and distance for those series. So many flags on both teams it was excruciating to watch live. It’s like the officials thought the few of us that showed up came to see them.
  2. Don’t forget that the bengals first practice session today is live on nfl network.
  3. Yup. Some of the humorous behind the curtain stuff really made me find some joy in this team again.
  4. FWIW - it’s ok to be excited for a fresh approach and not expect 12 wins. However this goes - this franchise is finally moving into the 21st century in terms of coaching and approach.
  5. I will start - here's mine (among so many really interesting tidbits): I literally cannot imagine the previous regime doing this or having these conversations. I frankly don't believe they ever did. I
  6. Please tell me you all saw this and read it. If not, it's here: https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/07/25/zac-taylor-cincinnati-bengals-nfl-minicamp-otas Cracking good read. So much in there to unpack. As someone who was begging for ML to be fired back at the end of the 2007 season, I am feeling absolute vindication. This team will still lose it's share, but it will no longer be because our coaching staff refuses to do anything with the game plan or gets out-thought and out-schemed with no resistance. I didn't see this being discussed anywhere on here, so I am giving it it's own thread. Feel free to cut and paste your favorite parts for discussion.
  7. Marvin Fired - New Coaches

  8. Marvin Fired - New Coaches

    This is why I come here. i laughed.
  9. Marvin Fired - New Coaches

    What COB said - it was painfully apparent that Marvin simply wasn’t as prepared and didn’t have his team as prepared as opponents - and that was glaring in the “big games”.
  10. 2nd Round Pick: Drew Sample, TE, Washington

    From Albert Breer's MMQB column: https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/05/13/vikings-cap-space-kyle-rudolph-browns-odell-beckham-jr-rookie-minicamps-dahale-warring-drew-sample
  11. Draft pick grades after reading scouting reports

    That's an A draft no matter how you cut it.
  12. Good on Taylor but WTF Marvin?

    Thanks for this. I giggle'd. And so on. I am REALLY curious what this will look like going forward - with coaches who are engaging the players. Genuinely curious. There was more to that quote from AJ too:
  13. Good on Taylor but WTF Marvin?

    Weird thing to worry about.
  14. Good on Taylor but WTF Marvin?

    That’s exactly it. It was no accident their inability to perform in big moments.
  15. Good on Taylor but WTF Marvin?

    But, in practice? Literally, telling the offense to cool it so the defense doesn't look bad? What. The. FUCK?. That serves neither side of the ball well. That guy was such a dink.
