  1. Bengals @ Football Team Game Thread

    Mixon is in a boot. He might be out a long time
  2. Dunlap traded to the Seahawks

    He was done with the Bengals and they were done with him. Now he's in contract mode....he's got $13mil to play for next year OR hit UFA off a big second half. I
  3. Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

    Need Spain at one of the guard spots. Probably RG.
  4. Bengals @ Steelers Game Thread

    Yeah, Lance Mcallister was trying to make a similar point. I think that's being intentionally obtuse. Sure it's nice to be hopeful but Vegas had them as big under dog and when you are down your top 3 tackles, Mixon and whatever defenders against the best record wise team in the NFL ON THE ROAD.....nah not a similar situation at all. I think that might be the first time this season they didn't cover the spread. So if you aren't willing to give them credit on your radio show or message board posts WHEN they cover while losing close then I think it shows a little slanted agenda, IMO.
  5. Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

    Right now there top 4 tackles (typically they keep 4 with 3 being active) 1. Jonah Williams - I think is the clear No. 1 tackle on the team and has played well enough to go into next TC as starter. 2. Bobby Hart - A controversial player. He's a whipping boy. He's a low tier starting level tackle. He struggles with pass protection and the better aspect of his game is run blocking. He's the perfect "jumbo" TE IF Zach likes that formation at all. I don't recall a whole lot of usage. He's not a great swing tackle candidate because of his struggles pass blocking. The offseason needs to focus on making him tackle No. 3 at best entering TC. 3. Adeniji - rookie. They insiders say the like him and has potential. 2 tough starts and hasn't flopped. This issue here is he is suited for LT according to the insiders. So????? Can you take a 2nd year player/low round pick and install him at LT over No. 1 draft pick then move that No. 1 to RT? 4. Fred Johnson - bad starts at RG took some shine off him. Good start against Tenn. I think he's a good candidate for "swing" tackle back up. I don't believe anyone is an Unrestricted FA. So any significant draft pick would have to replace 1 of the above.
  6. Bengals @ Steelers Game Thread

    From PFF_Bengals on Twitter: Stole this off another board. I honestly didn’t think the Steeler’s rush was that effective. A couple of the sacks were coverage, IMO. Positive sign for Adeniji. Not sure why Jordan can’t grade out higher? I don’t notice him much in a negative way while watching.
  7. Bengals @ Football Team Game Thread

    Probably first pressure game for Taylor. If you want people to start believing you need to walk out of there with a win.
  8. Bengals @ Steelers Game Thread

    You got to play Burrow. You just can't stick him in a glass bottle and slap a Pappy 23 year old label on him when he's Jim Beam white label. He was able to move and wasn't a sitting duck. He's got to see defenses that are dropping the max into zone coverage because the Bengals currently can't/won't hold teams accountable for dropping so many with the run game. I'd have to say that's my biggest complaint of Taylor. Games like the Ravens/Steelers you aren't going to beat them going empty backfield etc. In fact you are playing into their hands because they create big plays via the rush and turn overs. They are actually soft against the run (both teams). However, I think our line lacks the ability to consistently gain 4 yards per against a 5 or 6 man front. Pitiful really.
  9. Bengals @ Steelers Game Thread

    I love how the Steelers hold guys up and strip at the ball. The very second your team does the same.....whistle blew. There was probably a handful of times progress had been stopped by a Bengal ball carrier and they strip at it. If the ball would have come out, I"m sure there wouldn't be any whistle. Crazy how fast the whistle is on the opposite side. Then it's been all season Burrow simply isn't protected by the Refs AND Zac Taylor needs to start bitching about it game week and post game. Even if he has to take a couple fines. There's been several late hits not called on Burrow. Holding simply isn't called on the Steelers o-line either. Keep in mind this is not to say the Bengals could have or should have won. No they are a better team AND OUR defenders have a chance to intercept balls or sack a QB and they don't. Just annoying on top of the loss.
  10. Bengals @ Steelers Game Thread

    Vilma was annoying, BUT he was correct about the Bengals not trying to run the ball. I don’t think out come changes but they have got to start forcing teams to stop dropping so many in coverage
  11. Bengals @ Steelers Game Thread

    Very rude reminder of how far off they are. They are probably 10 starting player upgrades away from being able to compete at that level when a team that good is playing good. Hopefully some of the guys out today can close the gap But still need to scrap some cap space and start adding all kinds of FAs and draft picks.
  12. Bengals @ Steelers Game Thread

    They were asking Ross to play corner in practice due to the injury situation at the position. It wasn’t a full time switch. As noted he got hurt running routes before he got to the CB part of the programming.
  13. Bengals @ Steelers Game Thread

    Getting Mixon back will be key too. I have not heard anything on him.
  14. General Free Agency Thread

    In 2008 (a crappy season) the team started making similar moves in-season picking up Cedric Benson and a couple others. Some worked and some didn’t but they started filling holes to make it possible for division run in 2009. Hopefully these moves fill holes for next year’s team.
  15. General Free Agency Thread

    I think he is a two point stance DE. Hopefully they can get him some good rush snaps.
  16. Bengals @ Steelers Game Thread

    Keep him rushing up field and he probably makes some plays.
  17. Bengals @ Steelers Game Thread

    Steelers just placed a bunch of players on COVID list including Ben. Dan Patrick reporting they can't practice for 5 days and could play IF all the tests work out etc. Going to get dicey the next few days on who is playing vs. who is not.
  18. Bengals @ Steelers Game Thread

    Dude he almost died.... had a fever of 200 degree afterward, I'm sure.
  19. Bye Week Game Thread

    Steelers v Cowboys: Reminds me of 80s Electronic Football.
  20. Bye Week Game Thread

    Dunlap mailed it in after Pauly G left. That dude was a star by name only these last few years. If he turns it on, Seattle got a steal
  21. Bye Week Game Thread

    I wish Burrow would get calls like these other QBs.
  22. Bye Week Game Thread

    Lol that Ravens player just step over Rivers on the scoop and score
  23. General Free Agency Thread

    I know we are all about offensive line this off season, but the Grimes kid WR from Florida would be awesome to have. Basically a taller AJ Green. Also was with Burrow at OSU before transfer to Florida
  24. Bye Week Game Thread

    Walked into B Dubs while kids are at practice and of course there’s your Cincinnati born Steeler loving fan sitting right there. Never fails
  25. Bengals @ Steelers Game Thread

    It’s a match up deal. You have Dupree and Watt no matter what. Take the % on which side they rush from and then figure out who’s skills line up best against each rusher. Offenses are waaaay behind this. If defenses are going to move rushers then they need to start moving linemen. By the way Dupree needs to be a Bengal next year.
