  1. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    I'm going to change my projection to "hope" they'll start putting some wins together. Still don't see it above 7. 10 of Zac's 16 losses have been by 8 points or less. There's a whole bunch stuff that can happen to make it look closer or not as close. I have to "hope" they'll start stumbling into some luck.
  2. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    However if you end up drafting top 5. IF you really care about winning you have to consider replacing Tobin. Can't have that many draft failures along the offensive line and then stand pat and trust him to fix it going forward after all the resources they've put into it.
  3. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    Maybe foolish thinking but I think they'll start putting some wins together after watching this weekend. Not sure it will be beyond 6/7 wins.
  4. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    Dave Shula had some crappy lines.
  5. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    Who is Zac supposed to start? How does that make Williams and Jordan adequate pass protectors through the first 2 games? Zac can catch blame from San Deigo for treating that game like he had to score 30 to win. Too wide open in the middle of that game. Against Cleveland you had to throw that much and play that way because the defense had very few stops. Unfortunately Hart is not the only bad performer on that line right now. As said at the beginning the are largely unproven and dangerously thin. Hopefully Williams and Jordan start to string some games along that show why they have so much faith in them.
  6. Auden Tate May Seek Trade

    Ross isn’t a factor in this at all. Last year when Tate was hot, it was Boyd that complained about lack of targets. These two are only going see tons of targets together in situations that are injury depleted. They fill the same role.
  7. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    I've been through enough crappy Bengals seasons to know when the losses start everyone jumps into "Fix it" or "Blame" mode. Usually the solution the fans come up with are simple and usually fall on one player's shoulders. I think PFF numbers are good in a general direction and what those show through 2 games is NO ONE that on that line is pass protecting worth a damn except the Center which in most cases like 90%+ of the time the center is helping and rarely locked one on one. So yeah Hart sucks and I can't imagine anymore of him starting but damn there's break downs galore. That's the problem the coaching staff faces. IMO, that's a front office failure at this point of the season.
  8. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    Bobby Hart - 66.6 (60.1 pass, 75.0 run)Fred Johnson - 54.2 (45.0 pass, 57.4 run)Trey Hopkins - 61.8 (71.8 pass, 55.4 run)Michael Jordan - 55.7 (46.2 pass, 59.2 run)Jonah Williams - 68.3 (65.1 pass, 66.5 run)Billy Price (28 snaps) - 51.7 (47.9 pass, 52.7 run) I stole this off another board. Through 2 games. PFF grades. Pressure comes from everywhere.
  9. Auden Tate May Seek Trade

    Said it last year. They need to trade Boyd or Tate. They basically fill the same role.
  10. Bengals @ Browns Game Thread

    I though I heard somewhere. The Browns defense had not allowed a 300 yard passer in 20+ games. Burrow did that on 61 attempts. Did it under pressure, without chunk plays, without play action, with several players recording receptions. Basic proof his College superior skills are translating over to the NFL. Can surgically cut a defense, keep eyes down field and find open players and deliver accurate passes.
  11. Bengals @ Browns Game Thread

    I just hope wins will come soon. So many 1 score losses.
  12. Bengals @ Browns Game Thread

    D-line simply can't get off blocks and force stalemates like the past 3 years. Not good. If this Defense can not become decent then we've got huge issues because you can't focus All available resources on fixing the o-line. Burrow is awesome and glad we got him but they need to find some damn draft picks in the top 100 or Burrow is out of here. We don't have a 3 year window to fix this, IMO.
  13. Bengals @ Browns Game Thread

    Zach has had a lot of close losses. I hope the switch flips soon.
  14. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    They are not just 1 player away from having a decent line. All 6 spots (swing tackle) needs drastic improvement. Fred may or may not be good 1 day but he’s horrible right now. There’s not a single upper tier player on that line right now.
  15. Bengals @ Browns Game Thread

    Disappointing the defense was so bad. D-line just got pushed around. O-line sucks. Burrow is very impressive. It's amazing how close this game was despite getting dominated on both lines. Glad to see Sample show up. There's no easy solution for this line. Fred Johnson struggled big time at RG. They must not have faith in Price. Hart sucks. I just hope the franchise doesn't get hurt.
