  1. NFL Playoffs

    Oh I do hope the xfl finds a following for a few years because the NFL could use motivation through competition to improve its game
  2. NFL Playoffs

    Real drug testing will shrink and slow the players. Real grass will slow the players and create nostalgia TV events Allow more hand checking or physical coverage. Dont allow LBs to drop in Zone coverage. They must rush or engage a receiver. Remove QB protections that reward them for getting outside the pocket and entice them to run. Reduce holding by OL. Make it a spot foul when blatant. Remove calls for head shots out of the Refs control. Video review after the game and severe career threatening punishments. Also if player is concussed with a head shot that player is removed until the return I think these things slow the play. Create competitive balance between offense and defense. Create a more entertaining football. Get games over in 3 hours. i never watch a more boring “great” game than this past Super Bowl.
  3. Marvin Praises Bodine, Wants Him Back (not good)

    It’s weird. If Bodine was considered a “good” player his market value would be too much for the Bengals. He sucks so he’s a priority
  4. How different place kickers have won the Super Bowl over the past 15 years?
  5. Russell the muscle will be resigned OR they will fill the hole with low investment replacement.
  6. Lewis is such an ASS! Number one on draft day Lewis relayed the story about him personally scouting Bodine. Something to the effect he wrote on his notebook that he “must have” Then afterwards complete slicence on Bodine as he is bashed from every where and performs at the bottom of the league. Lewis let’s Paul Alexander take the arrows for sticking up for Bodine. Fueling the Paul is Mike’s choice not Lewis angle. Lewis plays the Mike Brown card when he’s without contract. After contract. Scapegoat gone ( Paul says he left). Lewis says: Oh yeah that Bodine guy. We like him and he is a resign priority. Leader. Can you imagine IF Paul returned to the Bengals, then the Bengals resign Bodine? OMG! The message board out rage. Mike and Paul! Paul and Mike! Redrum! Redrum! I don’t know if Paul left or was not asked back. At least we know Lewis is an ASS! We know for sure the organization methodology towards football doesn’t value Centers or interior line play in significant cap investment. You’ll have cheap rookies or cost value vets in those 3 spots.
  7. NFL Playoffs

    lol, Bodine is a priority according to Lewis and the new super duper line coach spoke positively about him. it’s amazing sometimes the alternate reality that is created on message boards because fans know ownership and head coach are unlikely to change so Assistant Coach’s become scapegoats. Lewis scouted Bodine in person and they traded up to get him. Bodine is a low tier Center because they don’t prioritize the position highly and they are forced to build a team with a self imposed harder cap than majority of teams
  8. I’m just saying the catalyst for the Pittsburgh 2005 title and the last Denver title wasn’t QB play, but if you just go by the QBs last name you could be duped into thinking the actual play that particular year was on par with the rest of their career. Tom Terrific was the same way. In fact Bledsoe actually won Brady’s first AFC championship due to an in game injury to Brady.
  9. Bengals were scrapping by in the 80s. relying on what was left of the greatness of Paul and two historically inventive coaches in Wyche and Lebeau. By the time Marvin came they were more than two decades behind NFL franchises. Lewis has implemented every modern Bengals football methodology. I have said it many times on here. I believe he’ll be apart of choosing his replacement and not shocked if ends up with front office role. I don’t believe for 1 second those late season games meant anything. Marvin played the break up game to feed his ego and Mike is too lazy to start over and changing things an outside coach would want to.
  10. A truer test would be: How many times did a top 3 AFC statistical QB and top AFC passing offense win the AFC? It will still skew favorably towards QB, I’m guessing but it will not seem so one sided as just relying on “name” which assumes the Hall of Fame QB delivered a MVP season each and everytime they won a Super Bowl.
  11. Don’t get me wrong QB is very important. However, playing the name game is skewing the reality. For instances Ben was a game managing QB in 2005 and the running game and defense led them the way. Peyton Manning was trash during his last Super Bowl season with Denver that team was led by defense. Tom Brady and the Patriots also transformed throughout the years. However QB should be on the table for pick 12.
  12. I know. Just saying I don’t buy it. Despite what he says. They half ass everything around there. IMO, when faced with changing Marvin and all the work that would involve afterward AND not having a familiar face available like Vance, Hue or Jay then Marvin became the easy road. IMO, Mike doesn’t want to deal with a new coach wanting to do things his own way and having to trained on the “Bengal way”
  13. I really don’t believe that. I think those victories gave something to rationalize the easy path for Mike. IMO, the guy doesn’t want to do the hard work to get the organization to the next level and will just continue to look at runs to the Super Bowl as decided by fate and circumstance.
  14. I wouldn’t take a guard that high. They’ve proven that they are not willing to resign if the player works out. Also they had Z with Ced at RT. Weakness on the edge overrides good guard play. They also have options for interior and hopefully they also invest FA dollars inside Right or Left tackle is of no concern. We have Seen first hand 2 seasons in a row that weakness in either can disrupt an offense. I would start with trying to upgrade edge protection. I wouldn’t be against taking 2 again. I also wouldn’t pass up Lamar Jackson at this point either
