  1. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    So is there gonna be a national media crusade against the Texans and Bill for ruining Watson? Watson is good enough he’ll keep them a float but it looks like they could be wasting years. Especially if JJ Watt’s health is still unreliable.
  2. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    I’m not going to worry about the football season until they cancel the Saratoga and Churchill Downs summer/fall meets and/or MLB. If some of those start canceling then I think Football is done or shortened this Fall.
  3. Bengals' [other] Needs

    Bengals have always offered and spent money. The beating out other bidders AND the ability to lose out on a target then move on to the next target is something we haven’t seen a whole lot of. The closest would be the offseason of 2004. The Bengals spurned by Sapp quickly went out and acquired Bobbie Williams, traded for O’ Neal and got Reggie Kelly. All highly drafted proven parts that were key pieces in the organization’s first division championship since 1990. Hopefully we’ll be sitting on a division championship in the same time frame. Zac’s 3rd season. It’s a huge credit to ZT and Tobin for this offseason. But that’s not the final job just a step.
  4. Bengals take Burrow but .........

    I don’t think we need to wave Pom Poms for ZT because he’s doing what every school and club sport is doing in America right now. Marvin introduced the Bengals to iPads and all sorts of other stuff when it was cutting edge years ago. I’m sure you could search the Hobson archives. Marvin couldn’t win a big game to save his life that’s were his short comings came. Moving on.....
  5. Bengals take Burrow but .........

    Nah, Marvin did a ton in that regard. Offseason program, facilities was his sweet spot. let’s not get crazy every school in America is doing virtual learning.
  6. Bengals' [other] Needs

    I have no idea about Zac. All I can say is there wasn’t much faith in the team prior to the start of the season because of talent. Then they suffered injuries. The team never quit by my observation and the horrible O-line actually improved drastically in the second half. So I don’t know, see what happens.
  7. Bengals take Burrow but .........

    I would take their entire draft for No.1 overall. That gives them 8 top 70 picks at a minimum.
  8. Bengals take Burrow but .........

    Crazy talk. There should be no sacred cows especially for a player that isn’t even on your team and unproven. There’s a price for Burrow. It should be a big one in the sum of 5/6 significant draft picks this year and next. I have my doubts Miami would do it.
  9. Bengals take Burrow but .........

    Exactly right. No matter who, they all had at least 1 thing wrong with them.
  10. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    I think Dre like a lot of first rounders settle into "average starter" and thus draw a lot more negative attention. I thought he would have been more of a ball hawk than he was. Anyhoo. The defense the past 2 years has been horrendous and it can't all be about scheme problems. When you're beat that bad there has to be some shake up and that's what they've done.
  11. My Wishlist for #33

    At the top of my wish list is a candidate/prospect for Offensive Tackle. It's a deep class and I hope 1 falls. I'm thinking blocking for Joe Mixon at #33. Blocking for one Joe benefits another Joe. 1. Tackle. Josh Jones would be a nice acquisition. If remember correctly his performance at the Senior Bowl was great and thus he's been projected in the first round since then. 2. Mauler at RG. There are plenty of candidates for this. Plus I wouldn't be against drafting a Center and moving that player or Hopkins. At the end of the day. There is 0 proven talent on the line at all. Hopkins a bright surprise in a pool of crap is just a mid pack Center. I would love these two position at 33 and 65. 3a In line traditional TE. I would love to have the ND TE. He fits exactly what they need. Supposedly they want to play 2 TEs a lot so it doesn't over write last year's pick of Sample. I think those are critical edge blocking needs that are often overlooked in the struggles of the run game and pass protection. 3b. WR - They simply don't have speed when Green and Ross are of the field. Those two have been off the field A LOT. If there is some deep speed candidates falling to 33 they have to be considered. LB - Because of FA - I'm putting off until 3rd round unless something unthinkable slides. But it's a critical need BUT you also have Pratt and the number of snaps these guys play amount to a situational player. Although same can be said for In-line TE but I think the need for protecting Burrow trumps that.

    I’ll take the dude from ND at 33 fo sure.
  13. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    I’m down for drafting a PK. I think TE at 33 could be interesting if they slide.
  14. Correct. The counter point is Dalton did the same during a lock out back in 2011. I say a lot depends on the team surrounding and the individual player. Dalton walked into a great situation back in 2011 that looked like a dumpster fire from the outside.
  15. IF you are going to keep Dalton there are some benefits: 1. Depth of course 2. Keeps the rookie on his toes. There’s nothing wrong with a little QB competition. 3. Roll the dice on QB injury around the league and get more than what you can right now. Andy wouldn’t seem like the type to be a cancer. That’s a big factor in seeing positives of keeping him.
