  1. I've mentioned various things on my wishlist for this team already - departures of Oogie, Jeffro, and the man who has never had an Offensive lineman fail - but I want to emphasize everything I want at this point is all about 2018 2017 is a lost cause. It is (or should be considered to be) a lengthy 2018 preseason, 8 games to help get experience and seasonign for players who will be starters next year, not this year. With that in mind, this fella aint gonna be helpin anyone soon but he did land the starting OLT job in Detroit and starting OLTs dont grow on trees http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21363481/detroit-lions-waive-left-tackle-greg-robinson So let's sign this guy, put him on IR, and let him complete for the starting OLT spot in 2018. Yes, he's been oft-injured, so yes, he's a risk. But at this point, we need to take some risks. A lot of them. Especially with a starting caliber player at a position of extreme need who has plenty of years left (drafted in 2014) And yes, I was not and still am not a fan of the pick, but Ross needs to see the field, ready or not. Nothing develops a player like live game snaps.
  2. Andy Dalton's contract for 2018 and beyond

    COB - just when I thought the 2018 season couldn't get any worse - you ran dry on amusing allegories. It's over man, its all over.
  3. The good news just keeps rolling in for our team https://www.cincyjungle.com/2018/2/15/17008044/arbitration-ruling-aj-mccarron-unrestricted-free-agent-2018-bengals so we coulda had a 2 in a trade, and blew it Coulda had a 1 if he was a RFA, and now thats blown as well Best we can get now is a comp 3, which is better than nothing but nowhere near as good as the other two scenarios And he wont be signing here. He wants starter money and starter playing time.
  4. we have a signing! we have a signing! https://www.cincyjungle.com/2018/2/14/17013486/bengals-sign-former-giants-offensive-lineman-bobby-hart S U P E R B O W L ! whats not to like about an OT who was rated even lower than Ooogie by PFT and also quit on his team - refused to play the final game of 2017? Do you smell that? Thats the scent of a CHAMPIONSHIP!
  5. chant it with me JEFF-FRO HE MUST GO BO-DINE DO NOT RE-SIGN rinse and repeat....
  6. oh dear god no - the first mistake of 2018 (not including the HC extension) is already being made https://www.cincyjungle.com/2018/1/24/16928370/frank-pollack-thinks-russell-bodine-is-an-impressive-guy https://www.cincyjungle.com/2018/1/26/16937724/marvin-lewis-bengals-working-hard-to-keep-russell-bodine

    ....that Zeitler is makin a boatload of cash?
  9. NFL Playoffs

    Refs really helped the Patriots at the end, and were the first to congratulate Brady (glad to be of help, Tom) at the end of the game
  10. not always in agreement with Doc, but.....he's spot on regarding SoaG https://www.cincinnati.com/story/sports/columnists/paul-daugherty/2018/01/22/what-mike-brown-doesnt-understand-and-never/1053569001/
  11. Uhm, Mikey boy has NEVAH been up to his job. NEVAH.
  12. ...and if you love to roll your eyes repeatedly, the enquirer interview with Mike Brown is a must-read
  13. Not really on topic for 2018 discussion, but this is a great, great read: https://www.cincinnati.com/story/sports/blogs/daugherty-blog/2018/01/19/guest-tml-who-dey-we-know-dont-we/1048060001/
  14. Much easier to find a quality ORT than OLT
  15. NFL Playoffs

    Scapegoated the OC whose squad put up 42 points wow If I am running the show, my concern is with the 45 points GIVEN UP, not the 42 scored. Complete flipflp of focus (or blame, if you prefer that)
  16. Potential Coaching Candidates

    Yeah - he left
  17. Potential Coaching Candidates

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! http://www.sportingnews.com/nfl/news/paul-alexander-dallas-cowboys-hire-new-offensive-line-coach-from-cincinnati-bengals/n9qkxj3oayra1d8v31docah9t The headline says they "stole" him from us If that was robbery, we need to get robbed more often :-)
  18. This guy seems like more of a ORT rather an a OLT We have needs at both OT spots but the need at OLT is imho far higher in priority Orlando Brown*, OT, Oklahoma Height: 6-8. Weight: 360. Projected 40 Time: 5.45. Projected Round (2018): 2-3. 1/6/18: Brown is a strong blocker at the point of attack, which is illustrated by him consistently tossing defenders to the ground. In pass protection, Brown has some athletic issues, like playing too high for the NFL, so speed rushers give him problems. Some team sources feel Brown should move inside to guard as a pro, but others believe that he will be a starting right tackle. Multiple team contacts think that Brown will be a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and project him as a starting right tackle. Brown has drawn comparisons to D.J. Fluker coming out of Alabama, who was a high first-rounder but was a bust for the Chargers. Sources have said that Brown plays up or down to competition, and that could be seen with an excellent game against Ohio State but an ugly one versus Iowa State. Brown was not consistently dominant in the ground game even though he should have gotten the better of the collegiate linemen he was facing. 9/1/17: Brown has been a starting left tackle for Oklahoma, but for the NFL, he is more of a right tackle competitor. Brown was a tough run blocker for the Sooners in 2016, opening a lot of holes for their talented tandem of running backs. He spent 2015 and 2016 at left tackle, but he's too tall for that spot in the NFL. Brown could be a good right tackle candidate in his draft class.
  19. who do you see as the top OLT in the 2018 draft? I dont like Connor Williams at all, based on what I have seen and read of him so far
  20. First round: McGlinchley (or the ND guard, but OT - specifically OLT - strongly preferred) Second Round: Either a center or A 3-down middle linebacker Third Round: whichever position you didnt take from the two R2 choices Trade up using r4 or lower picks if there is an obviously superior player at one of these 3 positions to be had by trading up. Need to focus on quality, not quantity BPA strategy needs to be forgotten in r1-3, as we now need to acquire immediate starters from the first three players drafted
  21. NFL Playoffs

    Rather not see another Belicheats superbowl
  22. NFL Playoffs

    so bizzare to see Melvin and his 0 playoff wins get extended, Hue and his 1 total win remain at the helm, while Mularkey with a great season and a road playoff win (the first for the Titans in many years) gets canned. Just bizarre.
  23. NFL Playoffs

    How about we replace Lazor with Mularkey?
  24. Bengals

  25. NFL Playoffs

    Thank you thank you thank you Jags Happiest I have been on a Sunday in very long time. :-) Now, if this isn't asking too much.....please go beat the Belicheats now
