  1. I believe the Bengals were a test for a new way to video tape. Happy to see Cam Newton go there. Makes the season even more interesting and Cam's style of play is a fun contrast to what New England has been forever.
  2. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    KY derby to have limited fans in attendance. Big step. A lot of sports media have overlooked what has and is happening at America’s race tracks. The back side of those tracks are small communities. Communities that travel with the race meet and ship in. When people opine about the NBA, MLB or NFL troubles from COVID it would be interesting to know if there were any major outbreaks among the backside of these tracks and how they were handled.
  3. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    I hope COVID can at least kill off 4 meaningless preseason games.
  4. AJ Green is fully on board

    There will be feetsball. I would like to have AJ for Burrows first 3 years. AJ’s tag comes off the books after this year so that does not rule out another tagging.
  5. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    Beastly! They desperately need to have him work out to the highest level.
  6. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    I don't consider Warford a "Long Term" solution but they are so razor thin up front on paper. I understand they think Jordan is a rising star along with Williams. Fine. But if either of them go down again or struggle. Then it puts Burrow in a tough spot to have success like Mixon has seen his first years in the league. The better they can get Joe Mixon going it makes life on Joe Burrow easier in his rookie season. Mixon has a high degree of talent but we've seen the line derail him for a period of games along with durability.
  7. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    Grabbed off another board, D-Lap has indicated the Bengals are considering Warford.
  8. RIP Ken Riley

    Ken Riley is a classic example of how Bengals players have to leave "no doubt" with Hall of Fame voters. Bengal fans all know championship team's get more players in the HOF, but when you really start to compare the number HOFers vs. bottome tier franchises it's evident there is a bias whether its intentional or not. It's sad or fitting Willie Anderson is speaking up about this because he's one of the league's best Tackles ever, AND he'll never sniff the HOF.
  9. What About the Defense ??

    I always thought the D-line got kinda a free pass in the blame game for horrible defense and run game. I simply think the D-line was horrible at getting off blocks and clogging lanes. Hopefully Sweet Lou can get them going.
  10. Bengals Statement on BLM Protests

    Bengals left wondering why nobody loots the Pro Shop.
  11. 1st Round Pick: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU

    I'm gonna pause on a Joe Burrow jersey. The Bengals are long overdue for a jersey change so I'm going to wait for that to happen.
  12. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    I’m in favor of signing Warford. They are dangerously thin and largely unproven. Micheal Jordan may become an All Pro this year but he was horrible last year. Warford gives you upgrade at a starter position then bumps everyone down improving depth.
  13. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    Under Alexander Hopkins was inserted as a starter at RG over Andre Smith back 2017. He wasn’t buried behind vets under Alexander. He could handle a Ketchup bottle if you know what I mean. Hopkins is just alright if he was surrounded by high performing tackles like Bodine his play would receive more critical analysis from fans. Still a better player than Price and Bodine. I would say he isn’t as good as Kyle Cook, yet. The overall goal would be to have Hopkins as your worse lineman instead of having players with that distinction lining up at tackle. Hopefully Jordan and Williams answer the praise and become budding all-pros. Find a decent answer to RT. I doubt we ever see the Bengals getting to the divisional round with the level of play at RT and LT with Hart etc.

    NFL facilities opening up on Tuesday
  15. What About the Defense ??

    As you look at this to a path of when their next Division title occur. The improvement of the defense is critical. They spent a ton and then invested draft picks too. They must have major success on that side of the ball so the focus can be turned into finishing off the O-line. The job was simply bigger that 1 off-season IF you didn't trade down. They didn't. The Bengals added a massive amount of defensive talent. I also don't think you take the CBs and call it a wash. Scheme, and coaching points are very important. When was the year that the world's best CB "Awesome-O" was pursued and the winning Eagles team won him in Free Agency and then was determined they were a dream team? Flopped. If these CBs are just better at tackling it's a major boost. Anyhoo, I think it's fair expectations to think this defense should move up dramatically in the rankings to near top 10. If they remain a bottom tier defense, I think you gut the entire Defensive coaching staff. It's a drastic move but improving the defense after these investments is critical otherwise they can't move on to other areas of weakness like the o-line. They'll realistically probably need to add 1-2 starters there.
