2018 is now starting at the midpoint of the 2017 season

From my understanding Minter sucks.  He sucked with the Cardinals who were happier with Dansby, so that's saying something.
Granted, I haven't been watching to make an educated synopsis of his play, but I thought I read something on here to that effect.

Yeah, I think they have that ability as well.  Guess we will see.  They seem to love Ogbuehi and FIsher, so that's telling as well.

Oh yeah, anyone see the latest on Marvin saying Ross has totally let down this team ??

Brilliant stuff from the coach that has played Ross like 20 snaps all season.

Gotta be his fault right ??

Yes, a good HC does not rip his players in public. He's now done this with multiple players this year but had never to my knowledge ever done it in a previous year. It is this new behavior alone that tells me that he is done, done DONE here. I actually think this poisons the well a bit in terms of the possibilities of landing a job in the FO, as well

Exactly, why would you want this guy who has been tossing players under the bus working in the front office ??

There are so many decisions that were made concerning the team this year that could be pointed at as example of why they stink but hey, it has to be the rookie WR, who has been hurt fault.

Hell the decision to draft Ross to begin with is one of those decisions. Just unreal that he took this route. Way to build his confidence coach.

Marvin Lewis is such a piece of shit right now, his time really has passed! I don't even think he knows what he is saying anymore.

Oh Ross is a piece of shit because his route was awful, so Marvin calls him out and puts his confidence down.

Adam Jones spits on officers calls them names, gets in trouble, but he is rewarded and comes back to the team.

Man this team is so messed up!

While there is certainly enough reason to question the decision to draft Ross #9 overall, they knew what they were getting into when that decision was made.
Him missing time due to injury was almost a given when considering his history and then you knew there was going to be a need for time to develop.
However, all of that is apparently tossed out the window when Ross is considered and he gets blasted for pulling up on a route.  (I read that somewhere)

This is yet another example of the stupidity of this coaching staff and front office that has taken the fun out of being a fan.

Bring "Chucky" Gruden out of retirement and give him mass control.
That would be interesting to watch.

Read that PFF graded Ced 0 pressures given up.    

That probably has to be his best pass protection game. 

Don't rejoice.  Paul can use this as proof of development.  I can see Ced being our (very ineffective) starting left tackle for years to come if he manages to sprinkle in some decent performances here and there.  I really would prefer to see him replaced.  Nothing personal, seems like a great guy, but his performance so far has been more typical of a depth type player than a starter.

I see your point and raise you the case of Gatorade that was denied to JJoe......if these better performances become the norm, and he can improve his run blocking a notch or three, he becomes a keeper. A late blooming keeper, one who we paid for years like a starter while he played a taxi squader, but a keeper nonetheless.

But yeah, I would also hate for Alexander to gain any validation to his claim to remain employed in his current capacity.

I think he could sell drinks or hot dogs on game day tho. Maybe both at the same time.

Reality for the Bengals is they aren't going out a being top bidder for any Free Agent lineman. Had two homegrown top players and didn't even tag one. 

It's unrealistic to think they can/will find multiple quality starters via draft.  Most of the league has struggled with this.

Ced will be in play for some starting role next year.   

They desperately need at least 1 of their already invested picks to show something.
