  1. Browns @ Bengals Game Thread

    Pitiful defense. Need to fire that d-coordinator.
  2. Auden Tate May Seek Trade

    That’s just wrong. Don’t go out like this Carlos. I wouldn’t give him away either.
  3. Browns @ Bengals Game Thread

    Interesting on college pre game. Urban Meyer thinks player caller needs to be its own full time position. Given the amount of data involved. I think Zac calls all the plays.
  4. Browns @ Bengals Game Thread

    I just hope Mixon being out becomes an excuse to not try to run the ball and we drop back Burrow 61 times again. Really need to start lessening the hits on him.

  6. Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

    Offensive line has been horrible in many 1 score or less losses. I’m not really sure how you can avoid the personnel and draft decisions that directly influence a coach’s win/loss record.
  7. Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

    Eh, that's too simplistic. Were you willing to give up Joe Burrow? Tee Higgins? For who, exactly? Makes no sense really. Here Zach we can sign Hart. If we don't we have 1 tackle on the roster entering the draft. If we do, we plan on adding Williams with our No. 1 pick and we like Cody Hart and plan to trade up. That didn't happen so they drafted Michael Jordan, signed Andre Smith and Fred Johnson. At some point Tobin's scouting has to be called out over the Head Coach. Reality is this was never a quick fix UNLESS you were willing to give up the chance to draft Joe Burrow.
  8. Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

    3rd - Fans were adamant about staying put for Burrow. Then are you giving up Tee Higgins for Ezra Cleveland or Josh Jones, two guys that don’t play much this year? There simply wasn’t a 1 offseason fix when the decided to dump cap dollars into the defense. Taylor may be a bad coach, but he really doesn’t have crap to work with along the o-line and that fate was sealed long before he was a HC.
  9. Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

    1st -Taylor didn’t resign Hart. 2nd - Hart is proving that was the correct move. That was pure Tobin. Don’t get me wrong Hart is bottom tier but there wasn’t a sure fire RT available AND it would have left them only dis gruntled Glenn going into the draft. Then they drafted Williams and failed in an attempt to trade up and draft Cody Ford. Drafted Micheal Jordan later.
  10. Browns @ Bengals Game Thread

    At some point you got to start winning and the young players need to lead the way. I'm still rooting for that to happen regardless of how meaningless it means for playoffs etc. Otherwise you are in the Cleveland Browns cycle.
  11. Browns @ Bengals Game Thread

    I'm not trying to advocate for Zac at all because eventually he has to win and the number of "close" losses is concerning. However, the cycle we are in is the direct result of hanging on to Lewis too long and Tobin's inability to build a line despite several big pieces being drafted.
  12. Browns @ Bengals Game Thread

    Geno and Carlos thing doesn't bother me as much as far as Zach Taylor. We had a college DC come in here interview for the job and turned it down and he noted lack of talent. That's a fact. At the time I didn't believe it because we had "name" players along the D-line. The lack of talent at LB took most of the blame of horrible defense but this D-line hasn't defended the run in a long time starting under Lewis. I'm all for trading Carlos and Geno because they simply haven't gotten done under their contract extensions. Good luck to them and get a much as you can in a trade. If Pauly G can get the old magic going for these guys in Vegas more power to them it just isn't happening currently and it probably won't happen and we need draft picks.
  13. Bengals @ Colts Game Thread

    Not real impressed with the Defensive coaching. Colts had guys coming open quickly on big 3rd downs. They seemed to know what buttons to push against Sweet Lou. 3rd and 1 plunge to FB was fine, IMO... IF you are going to for it on 4th. But if it's get this first or we are kicking mentality then you need to get something better. I thought they should have went for it on 4th because the defense just was having trouble with the Colts O. Of course IF Bullock makes the FG, then maybe I feel differently but I was kinda expecting a miss.
  14. General Free Agency Thread

    He played both. His last season here, I thought he was effective as DT rusher in regards to destroying pass protection schemes. He can bull rush just about anybody. He just can't shed and corner to get the sack most of the time.
  15. Farewell Andy Dalton

    It would not surprise me to learn Marvin Lewis in the stadium with Cowboys gear on. I’ve seen that primetime flop so many times.
  16. Farewell Andy Dalton

    Prime time Andy. Tough to watch any more.
  17. Bengals @ Colts Game Thread

    I think Williams only played a few snaps last game.
  18. General Free Agency Thread

    I thought he blocked a FG or PAT this year. Maybe week 1 or something?
  19. General Free Agency Thread

    I’ve always thought Hunt got a bad wrap because he over drafted and Zimmer put the kiss of death on him during hard knocks mentioning he and Watt in the same sentence. I don’t know what he is now, but he was always and blocking scheme eater. Lacked that final athleticism to produce the stat.
  20. "The Bengals Did Something Different"

    I thought Defense played a solid game against the Ravens.
  21. Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

    They’ll need to drop some coin on their own guys this year or they’ll tread water. Lawson, Bates, Jackson. Not sure when all their deals are up but they’ll be significant. It would be nice to add a decent starter along the line from FA.
  22. Bengals @ Ravens Game Thread

    For the record! Addressing a lot of message board scuttle butt and sports talk show hot takes regarding AJ Green lip reading and quitting based on him running off on the Int. Once again IF you are in the business of producing hot takes - YOU NEED THE ALL 22! The lip reading - I have no idea. I don't see it personally. Him quitting on the tackle during the INT - THAT IS NOT TRUE. As I expected when I first saw the small TV clip AJ Green wasn't running away. He was getting a pursuit angle. I caught the all 22 in a review of pass pro at Cincy Jungle. Confirmed this is what AJ was doing. He had no shot a making the tackle going straight for the Interceptor. His only chance was to dart up field and cut him off and in the ALL 22 you see exactly that and AJ looking over trying to estimate their cross point. Radio show hosts and twitter are crap. TV viewpoints are not reality. Lots of depth lost.
  23. Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

    Mekcia Becton from Louisville was reportedly making an impact (I think he got dinged) for the Jets. So there's hope. I'm targeting Alex Leatherwood from Bama. He decided to come back he was projected near top 10 last year. Like Jonah Williams he has been the top tackle in his class for a very long time. Coming out of high school he was ranked higher than a lot of recent first rounders including Andrew Thomas and Becton. They've had good success from Bama. The only downside is these guys go through a meat grinder down there and it seems a ton of Bama draft picks need a year off. All of our recent Bama draft picks pretty much had a red shirt year. Might as well as turn this thread into Lineman draft talk.
  24. Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

    The bad news is..... If you go through the names we've bantered around previous drafts wanting in the first or second rounds for offensive linemen; instant success is not there or very hard to acquire. Watching the Bills tonight reminded me of Cody Ford and how they tried to trade up for him. From a PFF standpoint he's sub 60 and barely better than Jordan. Tytus Howard not very good, Hart maybe PFF graded higher. Andre Dillard is out of the season. I'm sure there is a decent ranked starter in there somewhere but it looks like the Bengals got one of the few in Jonah Williams. Could very easily be in a Colts/Luck situation in which their line sucked. They invested in it first rounders, but by the time the developed and got a true impact Linemen in Nelson....Luck already had enough after missing several starts over multiple seasons. Even if they scout perfectly. How quickly this line develops is also dependent on factors outside their control like actual quality of the draft class. Is there a Quentin Nelson line prospect sitting in the top 10 of this year's draft class? I hope so, but doubt it.
  25. Bengals @ Colts Game Thread

    I say let the season play out. Sure if the Bengals wanted to fire someone in-season, I wouldn't complain. The hard truth is the next playoff head coach for the Bengals won't do it with this crap on the offensive line, lack of deep threat and a rookie QB.
