Can't find 53 NFL Players on this roster

Recommended Posts

Someone on Twitter named Jason just reported:   Bengals lead the league for number of players they drafted that are still on their roster with 37.

Team A: our roster has pro bowlers!

Team B: our roster has all-pros!

Bengals: our roster has guys we drafted!

Yeah just indicative of laziness  and being cheap really,  settling for mediocrity in a lot of cases.   If you don't care enough about winning, I don't care enough to spend a dime on your "product.'

The Bengals were a young team in 2017,  got younger in 2018 and were the youngest team.  They ticked up slightly this year.

Big coaching staff turnover. 

Basically what a lot of Bengal fans wanted with a house cleaning.

Lost 2 road games by 5 total points and got destroyed at home.  Edit: Teams they’ve played are 8-1.  

I think it’s to early to declare what kinda of job they’ve done.

The only complaint I have is after 2016 when it was clear the Marvin party was over.

Maybe after 2015 melt down.    Should have cleaned house then.  But they eventually got there. 

The offensive line reboot has been horrible and probably ends the Dalton era.   They probably need to address that part towards the 2nd half of the season and play Finley.

As an activity elsewhere, I constructed a Bengals all-time 53-man roster.  Might as well share:

QB (3) - Ken Anderson, Boomer Esiason, Andy Dalton
RB (4) - Corey Dillon, James Brooks, Rudi Johnson, Giovani Bernard
FB (1) - Pete Johnson
WR (6) - Chad Johnson, Isaac Curtis, A.J. Green, Carl Pickens, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Cris Collinsworth
TE (3) - Dan Ross, Rodney Holman, Bob Trumpy
OL (8) - Anthony Muñoz, Willie Anderson, Max Montoya, Andrew Whitworth, Richie Braham, Levi Jones, Bruce Kozerski, Dave Lapham

DL (9) - Geno Atkins, Carlos Dunlap, Tim Krumrie, Justin Smith, Domata Peko, Eddie Edwards, Michael Johnson, Coy Bacon, Dan Wilkinson
LB (6) - Reggie Williams, James Francis, Takeo Spikes, Brian Simmons, Vontaze Burfict, Jim LeClair
S (4) - David Fulcher, Tommy Casanova, Reggie Nelson, Madieu Williams
CB (6) - Lemar Parrish, Ken Riley, Leon Hall, Johnathan Joseph, Deltha O’Neal, Adam Jones

P (1) - Kevin Huber
LS (1) - Clark Harris
K (1)- Shayne Graham
KR - Lemar Parrish, Adam Jones
PR - Lemar Parrish, Tommy Casanova

HC - Sam Wyche
OC - Bill Walsh*
DC - Mike Zimmer

*He was a WR and QB coach, but whatever I’m giving him the job.

Starters are bolded; I threw in the names in whatever order they came to mind.

Roll Call:  who is a 53 worthy player?

1. Dalton.  Yes he can play in the NFL, starter.  However I’m tired of him and of the opinion he won’t be worth the cap room after next year=need

2. Hopkins- keeper Center filled.

3. Rest of o-line= crap.  All needs. 

4. Mixon= keeper

5. Gio=keeper

6. Boyd=keeper

7. Green=keeper/trade if you can

The rest of offense ?????? so far.

8. Hubbard=keeper

9. Dunlap/Atkins keepers but falls in Dalton category. Trade if you can

10. LBs- crap so far no keepers

11. Jackson= keeper

12. Dre= keeper

13. Safeties? I dunno, Bates not as good as I hoped.

14. Lawson? I dunno, where is he at? 

15. Billings. keeper

16. Bullock- no

17. Huber- keeper

Anybone else?

Following back on this.  This thread,IMO is one of the more astute observations this season.

So the Bengals have waved in-season two opening day starters.   Willis and Smith. 

In the case of Willis he’s been waved twice and no one picks him up. 

Marvin left the cubbards thin.   A few injuries and the Bengals are starting multiple players that are at best destined to be roster fodder.

Forgot about Preston.   He did get signed by the Raiders but hasn't played yet.

Just way too many starting jobs and/or snaps taken up by guys that can't find meaningful playing time immediately with another team. 

Smith, Preston, and Willis.   Then there is John Jerry who was a street FA.     

A playoff team might have 1 or 2 of these type players filling out the 52nd and 53rd player.   Bengals got 4 sucking up a good deal of snaps.   That's just guys proven to not be wanted.   If you sent out Hart, Price, Jordan I guarantee those guys aren't walking into starting level snaps.

Mostly agree.  AJ Green would be my No. 1 all time. 

I would also cheat and have Whit start at one of the guard spots. 

 

Which guard, Montoya and Kozerski are just as good

I would take Whit at guard over both, but Montoya and Whit would be my guards. With Muñoz and Willie.
