  1. The 2019 AFC North Champions...will be...

    Never cheer for Cleveland. Their fan base is so annoying.
  2. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    It was QB headlines when they showed up at Oklahoma pro day but that’s a NFL factory and I thought it was weird that Ford wasn’t a focus of those reports.
  3. The 2019 AFC North Champions...will be...

    The Browns do seem like they are on the up swing. I would be annoyed if they won the North. There is a very Cubs feel about the Browns. Loveable losers. I think the Bengals will be in the mix. It’s just overlooked they were one of the youngest teams last year. 1 minute from 5-1. Gave up. Then injured. I think a lot of the team checked out after loss to Pitt and embarrassment to KC. Bengals give the vibe of old team because they had young successful starters for years in Dalton, Green, Dunlap, Atkins. Those guys are in prime years next 4.
  4. The 2019 AFC North Champions...will be...

    2005 was all Steelers. Ben went 14-1 as a rookie in 2004 and lost in the AFC champ game to Patriots. Bettis put off retirement for a shot to come home and play in Detroit Super Bowl. I would venture to say in all the Bengals Division champ years 2005, 2009, 2013, and 2015 they were never a clear cut favorite. I was highly confident in 13 and 15. But it seems like the Bengals were always picked as the playoff team that won’t make the playoffs.
  5. Lap Says Bengals are looking at Sweat

    I thought the D-line was surprisingly weak against the run all season. I believe the underneath coverage and bad tackling undermined the pass rush ability. I thought Geno had a monster year despite the lull in sack numbers in the middle of the season. I understand the franchise grades for D-line and edge guys and that could pay dividends more seasons down the road,BUT how are you getting them snaps this year? Quality rush opportunities? There are immediate snaps available for a guy like White and Bush at an extremely weak area. I dunno know. We’ll see.
  6. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    Bengals are down Two tackles and entertained the tackle from Buffalo in FA. Not sure if he signed but I expect OT combined with the prospects available to get early consideration. Also wouldn’t be shocked with FA singing right before draft. D-line is loaded with “franchise” graded guys so that’s always going to be in play. QB, I don’t see it but who knows?
  7. Lap Says Bengals are looking at Sweat

    This is a natural conflict for this draft year. The d-line position groups are loaded with franchise talent. Bengals don’t really need that. Sweat is a freak for sure. There’s a couple of them at DT and edge.
  8. Walton

    Shame. I thought it was a steal of a pick when made. Glad they set him loose.
  9. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    A pure blocking TE is needed, IMO. One that can grab 15 catches and block like crazy. I would take Gresham clone not in the first round.
  10. my point of view on Who Dey

    “WHO DAT” is cultural saying in that region often found in jazz music way before the Saints were around. “WHO DEY” chant is original and associated with the Bengals in 1981. The origins rumored to be several things but it started in 1981 with the drive Super Bowl 16. The Saints similar chant was started in 1986. I doubt the Saints copied it off “who Dey” because as said before “who dat” had a larger cultural usage way before the Saints. They key to all of this, IMO, is “who Dey” started in 1981 and never went away but before a time NFL was intertwined with pop culture. The Bears Super Bowl shuffle and Cleveland Dawg Piund really put forth an interest in pop culture. From that moment any team having a successful season which drives songs, videos, chants, stadium nick names etc. When the Bengals drove to Super Bowl 23 and the fans innocently revived the old “WHO DeY” chant to some it appeared as a copy of the 1986 Saints “WHO Dat” chant. I don’t think anybody copied anybody. Who Dey was largely associated with Hudepohl beer which for short was Hudey They took it Hu-DEY...... Not saying Hudephol Beer invented the chant but the phrase is not based on black culture words it’s based on a short name for a Cincinnati Beer.
  11. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    White vs the Tackles is a tough call if it should come down that way. If White goes off the board then I would hope Dillard and Williams would be above Bush. That pool of 4 players gives them a good prospect at biggest needs. Right now based on roster numbers. They are down a LB. 2 OTs a TE. There’s a very good player a each position in this draft. TE doesn’t project a big need.
  12. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    By the way I would love Josh Allen but.....it’s unlikely he’d be there so late.
  13. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    After reading some draft stuff: Devin White A+++++ selection for me. Great prospect and a dire position of need. Devin Bush A++++, See above plus the last name. Johnah Williams A+++, Great prospect since he was high school. All he’s done is prove that out at the highest level and at multiple line spots.
  14. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    First report Dennard 3 years 21 Now Bengals.com saying 1 year deal. stay tuned
  15. Positivity Thread - What to look forward to

    With J. Miller another $7.8m cash spent and $5.2 cap used. So about $39mil cash spent this year about $29 mil cap room. Not counting Dennard who is rumored at 3 years $21m. await the details.
