all these drafts without linemen are hurting my soul :-)

Talk to the Bengals coaches who seemingly LOVE the current o-line as is.
I happen to disagree, but that's apparently neither here nor there !!!

Could be a lot of smokescreen stuff going on.  I don’t trust anything teams say a month before the draft and free agency.

true

Lets say a OL-needy Team had pick 33 and knows it needs to trade ahead of the pick of a team with a late r1 pick and similar needs for OL in order to get the blue chip OL player they need

it would be a smart move to quietly move to acquire the pick ahead of said other team and make it seem like there was no interest in an OL

Of course, the Bengals FO isn't known for being smart enough to do such a thing, so this logic kinda falls apart on that basis

Having the top pick in the 2nd round certainly puts them in play for a move back up into the bottom of the first round.
I would love to see that type of aggressiveness from them, but won't be holding my breath even if a player they need is there.

The closest from last year was the Giants moving from #37 to #30, swapping their 2nd rounder and giving up a 4th and 5th.
The other thing is that even with them giving up two picks, they still had 10 picks in that draft.

I don't know if I could see the Bengals wanting to give up multiple picks in that situation.
You never know though...

As expected, nothing for us. Worth noting that NE picked up a couple thirds and Chicago netted a fourth, so if there is any interest in trading for Dalton by either team those could come into play.

NCAA recommends closing games to the public.

Dewine is about to drop the hammer on the whole state.  He’s already shutting down state events, ordering significant limits on nursing home visitors, etc.  Elementary and secondary schools will probably be shut down in a week or so.

My guess is this whole thing is a memory by early mid April. Draft will happen.

I’d love for that to be the case but I don’t think we will get that lucky.

Dewine sent an email out today that said we are in a very serious situation, and based on his conversations with Ohioans, we “don’t get it.”  
 

He is not a guy who uses hype or blabs a lot.  He’s going to take drastic measures, it is pretty obvious.

They’ll still draft guys, but they will likely cancel the in person gathering.  Poor NFL, hope they can handle the loss of revenue.

 

ps - without the figure skating worlds, life is meaningless.  Goodbye, cruel world.

NBA inching closer to playing in empty arenas. Looks like it’s all snowballing today. I guess the reported cases doubling to over 1,000 in the last three days got some attention.

Just cancel everything forever. I mean seriously, what outcome are we looking for here? Btw, find some videos of people who had it. For the vast majority it’s a moderate/bad cold that lasts 3 days. People are losing their minds and the MSM is fueling it.

Why can't it happen? China is polluted as all hell and 50% of the people smoke there. Their cases of the virus have leveled off significantly. 

When the sun comes out and the weather heats up, shit's going to turn in the right way, quick.

Though I know the powers that be love a good scare. What's the saying? "Never let a good crisis go to waste."

I’m sure of it. Frankly, this is all my fault for buying plane tickets and planning to attend in person.

Going through LAX next month on my way to Hawaii. I was thinking about cancelling things out. Then I realized I really don’t give a shit.

Fuck you corona virus. Come at me !!!

Yup, for 80% of the people who get it, there’s little to no symptoms. Which is the problem! They go on about their lives, unknowing Typhoid Marys. And since the bug has an incubation period of up to two weeks, everything seems fine until all of a sudden it isn’t. The ones who do have severe symptoms all show up at the ER at once and you’ve got 20 people with pneumonia and only 10 ICU beds.

The point of canceling events isn’t to stop people from getting sick, it’s to slow the spread of the disease so it doesn’t overwhelm the medical system like it did in Wuhan and Italy. You don’t have to cancel everything forever, but for now, you do what you can to make sure people get sick at a rate that doesn’t exceed the available care.

I’m fine with this. It’s not panic, it’s common sense.
