  1. Week 4: Jaguars @ Bengals

    I believe Kenny Anderson was a Jacksonville coach at one point, I think. Anyway the best story post career was when he was QB coach here in Cincy. Akili and co. all had nagging arm soreness in camp so Kenny threw 7 on 7 etc. and it was the the best day by any QB so far in camp. Hmmmm kinda forgot Kenny won a Superbowl ring as Steelers coach on Tomlin's staff.
  2. Week 4: Jaguars @ Bengals

    Based on the radio show last night, I think a bunch of teammates have made their way back for Kenny's and Anthony's induction. That's the hidden value in all of the ROH thing. Alumni coming back and connecting with the franchise. I think it sounded like they might be on the sidelines during the game.
  3. Week 4: Jaguars @ Bengals

    I just hope this game counts in October then.
  4. Week 4: Jaguars @ Bengals

    2nd market prices are climbing for this game, I’d expect the best crowd atmosphere since 2015.
  5. Week 4: Jaguars @ Bengals

    Marvin era Bengals were horrible on NBC Sunday Night Football and Playoffs. They were completely win less. Preseason, Regular, and Post if it was on NBC Sunday Night Football in American it was a loss. I think that also extends to Saturday broadcast as well. Marvin fared slightly better on Monday Night but not great. In regards to primetime, I'm guessing Thursday was his best prime time slot because those games are pulled from an inventory of what would be regional broadcasts Sunday at 1. With the small market and fan base, IF the Bengals get pulled into Sunday Night Football its against another top team. If the Burrow Bengals get flexed on Sunday Night Football it will undoubtedly be another powerhouse team. Hopefully the Bengals shine big on Thursday and maybe Burrow and company continue to make a name for themselves and they get thrown an easier game in primetime in the future.
  6. Week 4: Jaguars @ Bengals

    With such a young roster it would be nice to have some of the fresh faces of the Bengals show up big time for a National Audience. Really helps with hyping the team up. Win this and its a huge game with the Packers coming in. (See I would fall victim to the trap game).
  7. Beautiful zone blocking on the bottom. Could teach a McNally clinic
  8. It was nice that Ben didn’t get the milestone 400th TD pass
  9. If that’s Carman’s run blocking grade then PFF isn’t reliable.
  10. Week 4: Jaguars @ Bengals

    I would hope Waynes would play as I guess this was the plan since they didn't IR him. Get him back for a couple practices then play vs. Jags. Otherwise they should have IR'd him and filled the spot for a few weeks.
  11. General Free Agency Thread

    This is exactly right. Eli Apple is a bottom tier CB but worlds better than some other CBs that have to fill CB2 or 3 role. Its clear Eli is the weak point and teams are targeting. They will get stuff against him but it has been and could be far worse.
  12. General Free Agency Thread

    Its clear teams are picking on Eli Apple but I've seen worse CBs that are a weak point. I can't remember his name but the dude from last year was a complete disaster IF you wanted to play good D.
  13. Spain and Carman had multiple finishing blocks that serves as examples of bullying them.
  14. Somehow the Steelers had a couple OL graded higher than our guys. That group got abused all day long and couldn't run the football without holding. As a typical Steeler football game they could have called twice the amount of holding too.
  15. Highest-graded players on defense for the #Bengals 1. Jessie Bates - 82.4 2. Trey Hendrickson - 80.3 3. Josh Tupou - 77.7 4. Vonn Bell - 76.6 5. Germaine Pratt - 73.5 What a balanced effort by the defense, many more guys graded-out well. Too many to name. So Wilson isn't among the highest graded defensive players? It was a solid all around effort but its strange that the MVP from the game isn't on the list. (He got the game ball in the lockeroom).
  16. 2021 rookies

    Carman looked pretty damn good yesterday, IMO. Chase - of course play maker but we have not seen the YAC superstar that is an absolute quality he has. So just wait, I guess.
  17. Yeah those grades are trash. Really should be opening an eye to maybe their formula doesn't really paint an accurate picture. The OL was physical and pushed the pile. Mixon had multiple gash runs. Pass pro held up most of the day off 18 attempts. I think there might have been 2 pressures the whole game.
  18. My thoughts: Zac Taylor took some unfair bullets after losing to the Bears, IMO. Its simply hard to overcome -3 TO ratio on the road. However, this Steeler game is kinda a red flag for the offense in my eyes. They should have 30+ in this game. Two short field TDs. 1 chunk TD to Chase. Mixon had a 20 yard carry and resulted in 0 points. ZT and co. has to find a way to get points there. Then I think late game you gave Ben too many chances by simply not converting 1sts. Defense is legit and deserves major credit. As expected the national conversation is more about what the Steelers didn't do vs. what the Bengals did. A lot of "Steeler need to run the ball more". Well the reason they didn't was there were too many minimal gains or losses and they went the route of getting Harris the ball via short passes. Credit to the defense that held Harris in check the whole game. That guy Harris has a chance to be good, hopefully Pitt never figures out their OL the next decade and waste him.
  19. I contend that PFF is way better than what message board banter had before them, BUT they are not worth the credibility that they get and certainly shouldn't be taken as gospel. Media references them all the time and its probably an actual paid advertisement. Their credibility is on the line if Carman doesn't grade out very good. He simply was dominate and nasty. Certainly a type of player that most OL coaches would love to have (keep in mind its 1 game).
  20. Odell certainly was on fire his rookie season. I always wondered how it would have continued later on. Completely strange he would never step on the field after that Bengals playoff loss. Wilson is certainly more disciplined and could be the poster child for the next era of NFL LB. Just need guys that can get in lanes and shrink windows and then hunt and tackle.
  21. Week 4: Jaguars @ Bengals

    New orange jerseys make an appearance. Unfortunately have to wait til week 5 to see the black
  22. Joe did work his magic a couple times to avoid a sack. But to fair, those probably would have been chalked up to coverage sacks
  23. He can get separation many different ways. Very good TD.
  24. Week 4: Jaguars @ Bengals

    Hopefully the injury report is kind.
  25. If you are the Bengals and see Harris on the Steelers you pretty need to make plans to lock up Bates and Wilson or he’ll kill you.
