  1. Marvin Fired - New Coaches

    So ownership gets to improve by hiring the right coach. It's kind of both. Ownership and coach have been sucking. Ownership can't fire itself. They just make the best decisions from here on out. I really like the decision to hire Taylor. Now, we'll figure out if he's as good of a coach as the decision was to hire him.
  2. Offensive Line

    This was an 8-8 team before the injury. At best. He'll be back for next season. In the meantime, it'll be interesting to see Taylor's impact on the season despite the setbacks. Do they bring in a decent FA at OL? A veteran camp cut?

    Just helping a brother out.
  4. Marvin Fired - New Coaches

    Marvin Lewis coached the Bengals for 16 years. He worked as an assistant in the NFL for 11 years before that. With nearly three full decades in the NFL, has it been a difficult transition for Lewis to leave pro football? “No, it has not,” Lewis recently told Zach Gelb of CBS Sports Radio. Does he miss it? “I do not.” Will he return at some point? “I don’t think so. I’m fine.” Lewis was talkative in response to most of Gelb’s questions. But the answers became short and quick when certain topics came up, like why did the Bengals fail in the postseason on his watch? “The other team ended up with more points,” Lewis said. Lewis, who will work with former NFL coach Herm Edwards at Arizona State this year after giving TV a test drive, sounds like he won’t be paying much/any attention to pro football in 2019. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/06/16/marvin-lewis-doesnt-miss-the-nfl-may-not-watch-games/
  5. 4th Round Pick (B): Renell Wren, DT, Arizona St.

    I have a feeling this season is going to make us more pissed at Marvin. And all the wasted talent and years. Not that I think they'll make the playoffs. But I do think we'll see a difference in performance in much better and refreshing way, like you said.
  6. Good on Taylor but WTF Marvin?

    This is why the Taylor hiring was a home run. Who knows how he ends up but the selection of a younger coach with a fresh mindset is desperately what this organization needed. Denver can have Fangio, Miami can have the next NE golden coach, I'll take Taylor everytime.
  7. 4th Round Pick (A): Ryan Finley, QB, NC St.

    What if this guy puts on a more weight? What if his arm strength increases a bit? It's not crazy to consider. It's likely. I think that the Patriots draft Finley if he's there for them. And then everyone is talking about how awesome he is going to be. Should be interesting to see what develops. But for now, Ryan Stidham is the next Tom Brady. Don't forget.
  8. Good on Taylor but WTF Marvin?

    This shouldn't surprise anyone. From the same coach who refused to play the best players in favor of the veterans on many, many occasions. The same coach who didn't want to hurt fe-fe's by actually disciplining players' behaviors that were clearly disruptive. Chad, Burfict, Jones, etc. Marvin brought this team out of the basement. But then throttled the talent when the teams could have been so much better. You wonder why Palmer wanted out? No accountability. None. I won't be shocked at all if this team does pretty damn well this year simply from the change in culture. All I hope is that I don't look back and say "what if?" as we're looking at AJ Green exit his prime.
  9. Draft pick grades after reading scouting reports

    Both LB and OL are needs. Go with the better player. The better player is Jonah Williams. It's really not that hard of a choice. Pittsburgh traded up and got a good player. Good for them. They also burnt up a 2nd and 3rd doing it. But in no way did they "get one over" on the Bengals.
  10. Bengals UDFA signings

  11. 6th Round Pick (C): Rodney Anderson, RB, Oklahoma

    Ran for 202 yards and 2 TDs in the semi-final game against Georgia in 2017. Killed it that game.
  12. 6th Round Pick (C): Rodney Anderson, RB, Oklahoma

    I have no idea if he is healthy enough to play in 2019. Might end up on IR. But if/when he plays, he obviously a top tier talent at RB. No stretching there. He's really really good.
