  1. Offensive Line

    I dunno. Speculation is crap. If there’s something common among these 4 players as a reason they retired then do what Zac Taylor suggested and ask the players. What’s stopping any reporter from doing so and if Turner is acting like an ass why wouldn’t they say something? Its kinda bullshit really because the Bengals cannot air personal business to defend their coach over baseless speculation at this point. Another thing that is bullshit is the Brown family is a lot of things but they’ve always seemed to back their players with bad circumstances. You’ve got two media members hinting at Glenn being part of the problem. So is there really anything to it or is it this team sucks and fans are frustrated and just want to grind an axe at anything?
  2. Offensive Line

    Still the biggest question on offense. My guess is 1 surprise cut is coming and maybe 1 surprise benching. Mixon will get yards but the rest of the offense will struggle without big improvement from this group.
  3. Offensive Line

    We never had this problem when asking lineman to properly dispense ketchup.
  4. Offensive Line

    Lap wasn’t shy about putting blame on Cordy. He had similar things to say as the reporter yesterday on radio. He added in detail that Glenn wanted to see this doctor in Pittsburgh. He eventually did and this doctor cleared him. Then he was cleared to fully practice. They were hitting the sled and Glenn was doing so in lazy fashion and got his ass chewed by Turner. (Not sure if this is the arguement). Then didn’t show up on Thursday. I don’t know about you guys but we can’t have a line coach chewing out guys that won’t abuse a sled. I’m taking my concern to twitter. #bullylinecoach #sledtoo
  5. Offensive Line

    This could have all been avoided if they would have asked him to properly dispense ketchup.
  6. Jaguars @ Bengals Pregame Chatter

    Remember when AJ got hurt, then some Bengal players complained about the field? Caused a fire storm of criticism for Dayton. Some idiot radio host even claimed the school system had $100 mil surplus because he doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the wall. Which set off another fake news fire. Then video appears and the injury was a contact injury and had nothing to do with the field. Same thing now with Turner. Lol, 1% of facts making 100% judgement. Really what you are hoping for is Washington to suck so they don’t make Callahan the head coach and change staff leaving him open to join Bengals staff.
  7. Jaguars @ Bengals Pregame Chatter

    Bengals were signing Hart regardless of line coach because of Tobin. Why is it Bengal fans assume the line coach works in a bubble? Just like Bodine was all Alexander despite Marvin Lewis personally scouting him and admitting it right after they drafted him.
  8. Jaguars @ Bengals Pregame Chatter

    1 reporter I heard on the radio said this might galvanize the team. Hinting around that there were some players that thought Glenn was milking an injury. He was in and out with some foot problem up in Buffalo too. Hasn’t played much since cashing in.
  9. Jaguars @ Bengals Pregame Chatter

    To get cleared from a concussion he has to be cleared by an independent neurologist. He practiced which means he was cleared. It’s been 63 days on a self reported concussion. Where’s the rush? Coaches have nothing to do with it, IMO. There’s a good chance Mason Rudolph who was knocked out and went to the hospital will be back sooner than 63 days.
  10. Jaguars @ Bengals Pregame Chatter

    He was cleared.
  11. Jaguars @ Bengals Pregame Chatter

    Well got my answer. Glenn not a factor the rest of season and next year. Faking a concussion? Bad Cordy.
  12. Jaguars @ Bengals Pregame Chatter

    I’m not endorsing any coach at this point, but for me it’s free pass for the coaches. It’s lack of talent, IMO. McNally one the greatest line coaches had shitty lines in the early 90s. Andre Smith had a good run at RT for a few years. His last good year was 4 seasons ago. So he was opening day LT starter. Then replaced by a career blue collar LG that was out of football. That’s a shitty hand to be dealt.
  13. Jaguars @ Bengals Pregame Chatter

    It would be super nice if Glenn could improve LT immediately so you can get a sense of Price’s potential at LG. Then doublely good if Williams could return this year so you can get a look at him in action. Then hopefully Hopkins solid at center, Price solid at LG, Williams solid at 1 tackle. Then you have Glenn and Hart battling for the other RG, RT, and Swing Tackle with a decent rookie draft pick, Miller and Redmond for next year. At some point some these dudes have to start working out or the rebuild will be a continuous state. Last year’s line was bad but had functionality. This year’s line is bad, but it’s destructive it literally destroys anything they try to do. Bad line last year but Mixon was productive. Now he can’t do anything.
  14. Jaguars @ Bengals Pregame Chatter

    Ultimately it sounds ridiculous at this point, but is Glenn someone you can count on to compete for a spot next year? He’s only 30.
  15. Time to begin the rebuild

    QB talk always dominates the offseason talk. This year will be off the charts and an interesting dynamic is forming for the Bengals. The Bengals have a decent starting option next year in Dalton. May not be the desired option by fans but a decent option. The QB free agent market has a chance to be very interesting. Players like Mariotta, Cam, Tannehill, Winston. Then it’s a good QB draft class. Can the Bengals spend their top pick on the best talent non-QB and scoop up one in the 2nd? Top draft positioning in the 2nd is becoming more important to them as well.
  16. 2nd Round Pick: Drew Sample, TE, Washington

    Drew Sample isn’t playing more snaps because they aren’t running the ball because the push from the line is so poor. The o-line has been overmatched the entire season except for an opening drive against Arizona. The TE group as a whole is losing snaps to Gio, Tate, and Erickson because they stand a better chance beating those match ups vs running the ball into the backs of linemen. The tackle taken after Sample has been grading out at the same level as Hart so there’s no miss there. There is no magic bullet. The line sucked two years in a row and every upgrade has failed or yet to materialize. The guy plays a level of snaps consistent with the frequency of the number running plays called. We see a lot of 3 WR sets to get a defender out of the box. 2 TE sets with them in line just adds defenders to the box and they can’t win blocking 6 and 7 man fronts. It doesn’t appear he’s failed to compete for a job.
  17. In-Season Roster Moves Thread

    Exactly. When the draft classes of 2004 and 2005 fell apart then things eventually came crashing down in 2008 they made a series of short term moves that turned things around quickly. They nailed quite a few trash heap moves and 1 year FA defensive vet moves that filled holes. They basically right now have 1 guy you can pencil as a decent starter along the line for next year. The rest is a mystery. Hopefully ole Fred can bump somebody to the bench.
  18. 2nd Round Pick: Drew Sample, TE, Washington

    There was concern with this line when we thought they had Williams, Glenn, Boling, and Price. 3 of those haven’t played and Price has struggled earning a starting gig. They couldn’t run block in the preseason. Their suck has sabotaged any way to judge anything offensive.
  19. In-Season Roster Moves Thread

    Nope not wrong. That’s just were we are.
  20. Zach Brown

    Mike Brown deep in thought. Where’s that thread?
  21. Jaguars @ Bengals Pregame Chatter

    That sucks. Willie Jackson was having a good season.
  22. 2nd Round Pick: Drew Sample, TE, Washington

    Knee jerk reaction. Shitty run blocking from the line disrupts this whole offense. They run the ball 29% of the time so far. 373 plays and logged 108 carries. He’s played about 24% of the snaps which is close to the % of the time they run it. I don’t really see an issue other than the run blocking is crap.
  23. In-Season Roster Moves Thread

    Steeler fans seemed to be annoyed that they exposed him to practice squad risking losing him. Probably more of a guard. Research shows he was a 3 star ranked high school recruit. Had other offers from Nebraska, Marshall, Va Tech, and Miami. Steelers made him a priority UDFA signing. Most draft profiles had him as drafted player in 7th round. CBS sportline had him among top 25 non drafted players. Clearly showed promise in preseason enough to make practice squad.
  24. I’m not against trading anyone. I think they need to get back multiple picks/players otherwise you are spinning your wheels. A singular pick that in reality won’t get you a top 15 college player is too big of a risk to incur when you have those players locked up for multiple years. In the cases of Dunlap and Geno. They are unlikely getting first rounders. So you are getting a 32nd or below college all star on a 4 year cheap deal. Dunlap has 2 more years with a cap hit around $12 mil. Geno 3 years around $15 mil. AJ Green isn’t as dire either because you can tag and trade and probably get a better deal vs. October 29th.
  25. Zach Brown

    No. He has signed 1 year deals the past two seasons. Yes he’s a good run stopper and upgrade currently but unless you are getting him locked in next season there’s no point and he hasn’t done a multi year deal his past two so it’s unlikely he’ll do one here. Otherwise all he does is improve us and move us down the draft board a couple spots this year.
