cincyhokie Posted January 8, 2012 Report Share Posted January 8, 2012 Let's start with the obvious.Here's some players that NEED to go but there's questions on whether they actually will:Livings. Have no idea how he is such high favor but he needs to go before the 2012 season starts. Crocker. Servicable, and a great teammate but his time is done. Slow, slower, and molasses. Bye.Benson. Thanks for your contributions but you're not taking this team to the next level. Later.Pacman. Maybe you can stick around as returner but your attitude f**king sucks, please leave.Geathers: Thanks, bro. Time to get a difference maker at DE.Here's some players that can stay but shouldn't start:Rey M. Love your passion, long hair and tattoos. However, your mediocre play is now a liability. You've hit your ceiling. Andre Smith. I like you in the run game but you're a problem in pass protection. Dalton needs time to throw. If you left the team altogether, it might be better because you shouldn't be making starter money soooo...Jerome Simpson. Dude, your time in the spotlight was great, nice flip. Now don't show back up here unless your the 4th WR. On second thought I'll take a solid FA WR to take your place and not waste a draft pick on another...Jerome Simpson.Now here's the tough subjects to deal with:Andy Dalton. I like you. But you need a running game to be more effective. You're so advanced for a rookie that you've almost already seemingly hit your ceiling. That's scary for me to say but it needs to be said. Again, I like you but I feel like you're the next Joe Flacco. We need to get you a running game. Badly.Gresham. You're a solid player but I hope we don't hang on to you too long for your development like Eric Kattus. Step up and play to your potential.Leon Hall. To compete in this league and make a deep run in the playoffs we need you...as the 3rd CB. You're not a shutdown corner that we need to consistently compete with the Steelers and Ravens.Bottom line:The Bengals need to make some tough decisions and get rid of some of the dead weight. That includes some well liked players. Sorry, but if they're not cutting it they're a liability. Unfortunately, this team has a history of hanging onto players too long. This team needs more PLAYMAKERS! Not solid fill players.Want fans to come back? Make tough decisions and improve this team where it needs it to be a consistent winner. As of now, even with the potential players to be had in the draft, this is an 8-8 team. Can they make the necessary changes? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
