    Probably especially when you saddle the new coaching with all the old coaching staff’s players. Then stand pat the first year. Marvin inherited an underachieving roster with a couple pro bowlers or soon to be pro bowlers. Then in 2003 and 2004 they signed a bunch of former 1st/2nd round draft picks from other teams. The front office simply has not done a good job for the new staff when compared to Marvin’s first 2 years.

    The need OL and speed at WR. They aren’t going far until both are fixed. Very hard to run an offense week in and week out for 16 games absolutely needing your QB to throw in 2.5 seconds and needing 10/12 play drives. The last two games Burrow started it was 6/7 in coverage jammed in 20 yard space.

    Good news! Burrow did not die during surgery. It was deemed as a success

    Cincy Jungle notes Fred being a healthy scratch 2 weeks in a row indicates Adeniji had won the “swing” tackle spot.

    Everyone pays attention to QB scouting more. In 2019 Zac showed up to Oklahoma pro day and everyone thought "Kyler Murray", later that draft it was rumored the Bengals were trying to trade up to select Cody Ford. Last year there was late speculation that Herbert was in play for the Bengals. They were confirmed at the Oregon vs. Arizona game. I can't find anything saying they were at the Rose Bowl last year. Oregon was one of the few schools to hold a pro day and the Bengals were there. Oregon has a bunch of OL working out that day (not sure if Sewell did). However it's easy to talk to position coaches etc. I'm sure they already got a decent report on Sewell already. I would say the same for Leatherwood considering they spent a lot of time scouting Williams.

  7. Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

    on the 0-line. It's basically Jonah Williams and a bunch of late round drafted or UDFAs. The exception being Jordan. When All-Pro and Pro Bowl teams are awarded no one will be claiming any of our O-line has been robbed. With the exception of Williams there is a good chance multiple draft OL prospects from this class will grade out better than what they have entering the draft. The worry part is if you read prior Bengals.com reports they have stood by this same group that hasn't delivered. Spain removing Jordan (vs. Giants) is very worrisome. So do they have an accurate read on these guys or not? Probably not. Are they going to go against their initial scouting thoughts? The talk of Spain is also worrisome because he's clearly an upgrade but still closer to a journeyman vs. All-Pro. They need at least one more guy and probably two along with Williams that people can legitimately argue can be future All-Pros. It's possible to find these guys later in the draft but it's unlikely. It's becoming harder to find those guys in the first round. So if Sewell has the grade that matches his hype, it's hard to pass up, IMO. However, it's a deep class and they need everywhere.

    Way too early to get worked up about what Hobson says. He's got 3 month of draft talk staring him in the face. He was saying "trade down" last year and entertaining Dalton return as starter. Year before he was entertaining DTs and LBs and the name Jonah Williams was absent from his early "Hobson Choice" whenever he talked about OTs. Pimping Jawann Taylor. In both those cases after the draft it was clear Burrow and Williams were the top targets and it was determined early in the process. In the case of Williams they pimped LB so hard that most people still think and the Steelers clearly thought they had to trade up to steal Bush from us. Hobson isn't giving you anything accurate, he's got to do something to entertain draft talk for 3 months. Lap is the only guy that shown accuracy in projecting the first round pick and that usually comes a week or two before. Although last year it was a bad kept secret the Taylor loved Burrow and that was leaked via the Nebraska ties between the two families.

    Break out the Hobspin.....Tom Landry.

    Mixon being out complicates it as well. You'd like to see next year's candidates for line jobs block for Mixon to see the timing etc.
  11. Bengals @ Dolphins Pregame Chatter

    Simple there's probably 10 guys that are getting snaps that they should know are on the bubble for next year's roster or getting those snaps next year. Go ahead and take those snaps away and give them to the guy next in line. It's a low risk deal because if the entrenched starter goes blabbing to Elise Jesse (which is happening), cut them and they'll end up fodder on the next roster they are on anyway. Easy examples are Hart. He's a low tier starting RT in this league. He'll probably be your starter opening day TC. They don't need to see anymore. Start Fred or Hakeem and see if it's possible to replace Hart. Jordan/Redmond same thing. Do we need to see Fat Randy kick anymore? Nope he is what he is.
  12. Bengals @ Dolphins Pregame Chatter

    The Bengals go out and sign Spain. A multi year starter that had to sign 1 year FA deal and then was benched after an 3 yr extension. He comes in here with very little practice and plays RG, RT, and LG. Easily playing at a level equal or better than the previous starter. It's an improvement over the 1st year when Jerry and Smith come in off the street and improve the spots. That story repeats itself up and down this roster. You can fire a coaching staff all you want, BUT if the next coaching staff has to deal with this reality it's just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic

    IF that’s true.... then it doesn’t matter what coach you bring in here. It’s completely rational to think you’ll make playoffs with an offense needing to deliver the ball in 2.5 seconds or less. What a joke.
  14. Defensive Coaching Shakeup Coming?

    Sweet Lou was like their 4th choice and his units can’t make critical stop, IF they could crazy as it sounds the Bengals would be fringe playoff. So it wouldn’t be a shock. That said... nobody wanted the job before and the best players aren’t extended. Who would take it?
  15. Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

    They will have 4 young tackles under contract at the end of this season. Drafting a tackle means cutting somebody, so....... this is concerning because in their mind they are set at tackle.
