  1. Redmond suspended 4 games

    so he can false start and hold more even more often in 2019?
  2. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    corrected statement
  3. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    I will probably never understand why the Bengals gave Hart such a big contract I get that starting quality OTs are in short supply right now........but he is nowhere near starting quality and he was paid like a quality starter. If they figured they couldnt get anyone better, ok, i can understand that given the shortage.....but.......they could have had him for half or less of what they actually are paying him, in my opinion
  4. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    They should be trying Glenn at ORT right now to make sure it works Glenn at ORT almost has to be an improvement over Hart They have several veteran players who can fill (and need lots of practice reps) at OLG while Boling is out - Westerman, Redmond, and Hopkins What they dont have is a reliable ORT
  5. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    yep, we should have offered our 2020 r5 pick sad - business as usual for this team
  6. 4th Round Pick (B): Renell Wren, DT, Arizona St.

    Your new name is RenRen
  7. Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

    yep: https://www.cincinnati.com/story/sports/nfl/bengals/2019/05/13/jake-fisher-buffalo-bills-release-bengals-2015-second-round-pick/1188680001/ I really thought this guy would come on. He had a very good first year playing all over - TE, hback......but just never put it together as a OT
  8. Good on Taylor but WTF Marvin?

    if this was the only thing I had against Melvin, this alone would be enough for me to want him gone as a coach no wonder our D was near historically bad last year
  9. 2nd Round Pick: Drew Sample, TE, Washington

    Hopefully the huddle report (quoted earlier on this page) has it right that he is a 3 down TE with skills comparable to Jason Witten (3 down TE is most definitely a need at this time) But I am not optimistic
  10. Draft pick grades after reading scouting reports

    I get the feeling that this is how it is perceived and/or marketed in Pittsburgh, despite the reality of it
  11. Bengals UDFA signings

    I love it that the Jets have announced the signing of Arya Stark this player has kinda a slashing style, good quickness and elusiveness, but is likely to draw penalties for overly rough play. Scouts have concerns about the players size as well.
  12. Draft pick grades after reading scouting reports

    Lap did say prior to the draft that he felt Dillard would be the pick at 11, but he also said that if Williams fell to them he should be the pick instead If I were picking at that spot and both Bush and Williams had been available, i'd try to trade down first at least a spot since I'd get one or the other, but failing that, I'd take Williams The D will look a lot better if we can keep the O on the field longer, and the line play largely decides that
  13. 6th Round Pick (C): Rodney Anderson, RB, Oklahoma

    Is one more of an inside guy and the other more of an outside guy?
  14. Bengals UDFA signings

    Hmm well, Chad Johnson was a great WR (OchoCinco not so much), so I hope you're right
  15. Draft pick grades after reading scouting reports

    I am hoping that loss of a r2 pick (and the third rounder next year) will come back to bite them in the butt later
  16. Draft pick grades after reading scouting reports

    I hope mem is right as well
  17. Bengals UDFA signings

  18. Draft pick grades after reading scouting reports

    I'd rate this draft a C overall The first pick was great - the perfect guy fell right to us, so this had moe to do with luck than anything. I firmly believe that if Shittsburgh hadnt traded in front of us, we'd have taken Bush The second pick was gawdawful bad. Feels like we took a 6th rounder -- where pure blocking TEs are obtained - in the 2nd round. If he turns into a 3 down TE my view of this draft will be much improved I have warmed to the third rounder. I wanted a coverage LB - emphasis on coverage - and this guy seems to be that, especially given all his time as a rather large Safety. I was asked by someone (mem maybe?) why I keep saying he only rated one game. Well, thats what the nfl.com profile says, very first sentence " Pratt only started one game in three years with the Wolfpack " https://www.nfl.com/prospects/germaine-pratt?id=32195052-4163-5713-12ab-3117ec02a181 Finley was great value in r4, albeit a bit of a gamble given that he played for 2 different programs and never got a chance to be "the man" consistently. He may be far better than he was able to show in college. If he is, this was a great pick. If he is what he showed us in college, this is a meh pick. But we did need a developmental QB to be ready in 2 years when Dalton's contract comes up. So it had to be. But - I'd rather have Rosen in trade for our second rounder and a 4th round TE The undersized DT was a wasted pick. I was very wrong about another undersized DT taken in a 4th a few years back, but for now......wasted pick when we needed to get another starter-level OL or LB. Should have gone with Mack Wilson with this pick, or the next pick for the OG. I would greatly prefer Wilson over this pick or the next. Trading up for a OG, lifelong Bengals fan or not, was a waste of multiple pick I like both of the RBs as well as where they were taken. The flyer taken on the oft injured star RB in particular. If he doesnt recover, so be it, we're only out a 6th rounder. If he puts the injuries behind him - and some players have - this might well be the best pick of our draft. Low risk, high potential return. We'll see. I dont like the second LB taken because late in the draft I want to see athleticism and speed rather than a limited athlete who is more or less plug-n-play. I see this player at best as another Hardy Nickerson - knows what to do but doesnt have the athletic ability to get it done. I pray I am wrong and this guy turns out to be a great signal caller and leader of our D The 7th round corner is more the type I like to see taken late - raw athletic specimen. Also has Good height and decent speed. Good value here I think we should have taken a S (or perhaps even a WR) with return skills instead of either the OG or the DT I'd rate this draft a C overall
  19. 3rd Round Pick: Germaine Pratt, LB, NC State

    Not as bad a pick as the 2nd rounder? Im not even sure I can say that with certainty, but its about the most praise I can muster here its a low bar
  20. 3rd Round Pick: Germaine Pratt, LB, NC State

    exactly I guess I should be happy we took a linebacker, but when I went to read his draft profile, I kinda stopped after the first sentence "Pratt only started one game in three years with the Wolfpack" My dead gramma started 1 fewer game than this guy awesome just freakin awesome
  21. "Official Draft Day(s) Thread"

    *sigh* I stopped reading the draft profile after the first sentence......"Pratt only started one game in three years with the Wolfpack" I tell you what.....I will bulk up a little, buy some pads and gatorade, and go play LB for the Bengals. I've only started 1 fewer game than this guy, so I should be fine
  22. "Official Draft Day(s) Thread"

    If we have to take a drink of an adult beverage everytime this happens, folks may end up in the hospital
  23. "Official Draft Day(s) Thread"

    apparently you - and of course pretty much everyone who didnt have to google to verify your statement *sheepish grin*
  24. "Official Draft Day(s) Thread"

    Well, we did sign that backup slot corner and a backup DT and re-signed an injured linebacker who may or may not be ready to play by September and who wasnt good when he was healthy so there's that
  25. 2nd Round Pick: Drew Sample, TE, Washington

    horrendously bad pick
